“What I Did with My Summer Vocation”

My employer announced today that it has received a significant grant from the Lilly Endowment to start a summer program (with a theological bent) for high schoolers. The program is being developed under the auspices of our Muller Center, a department that aims to connect our academic work to civic engagement.

Newberry has a long tradition of producing “preachers and teachers” — in many respects it has been our main business for 160 years. I’m glad to be a part of the school’s continuing mission, and I’m glad we’re finding new ways to develop that mission. . . with a little help from our friends.
