Distinguished Alumni Awards 2004

This year, the school continued the emerging tradition of recognizing the contributions of our alumni through the presentation of Distinguished Alumni Awards. These awards were first presented in July, 2003 at the NAB Triennial Conference. The 2004 awards were presented on April 24 at the spring alumni reception held on the Taylor campus. We are very proud of our alumni and their lives of service. Through these awards, we wish to acknowledge the valuable contributions made by our many alumni.

One last thing...

Donelda Schultz (formerly Urquhart) has been working as the interim Coordinator of Alumni Affairs since September of 2003 and is going to be moving on from Taylor at the end of June. Christine Okken will resume her position and will be working with alumni in the 2004/2005 school year.

Donelda wishes to say thank you for allowing her to get to know many of you and for allowing her to represent such an amazing group of alumni. She has recently been married to Benton Schultz (also an alumnus) and is now living at Camp Silversides (Bentley, AB) where he is program directing for the summer. She will stay in touch and will continue to pray for Taylor University College and Seminary! You can get in touch with Donelda at alumni@taylor-edu.ca until the end of June or at deeshouse53@hotmail.com any time. Richest blessings on your lives.
