KEN HAYDEN ‘86
During each week of the summer camping season, the Alumni Association hosted lunches for alumni and their families. Alumni staying at one of Word of Life’s Camps in New York and any other alumni living or vacationing in the area were invited to join us. It was exciting to host the luncheon in the newly-renovated Huskies Den (formerly the dining room and annex). Each week there were between 40 and 80 in atten- dance representing every decade of the Bible Institute. We connected with alumni from the very first graduating class in 1971 right up to current students and several prospective students. Roger Peace and Mike Bush shared updates on what is happening on campus and some things that are in the works for the future of the Bible Institute. Exciting updates were shared in the areas of Study, Student Life, and Ministry! After the lunch, any who wanted to could go on a walking tour and see up close some of the changes on campus. Be sure to include a stop at the New York campus of Word of Life Bible Institute in your vacation plans next summer and see all that is happening! Even if you were here this summer - you won’t believe all that has been accomplished since then!
