Tuesday's Treasures

On Tuesdays we provide our Faculty an opportunity to feature the talented work of some of our students and friends. You may see a display of creative Photoshop work, their beautiful photographs or an interesting story about an individual’s meaningful contribution to his or her community, country or the world.If you have memories, old or new, you would like to share, send them to me at

The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

And a special thank you to Jack Murphy for sharing with us.
