A December Send Off
December 15, 2013
Kuyper’s December graduates were honored by Kuyper’s President, Dr. Nicholas Kroeze, and Provost, Dr. Patricia Harris, during Advent Chapel. Many, but not all, of the graduates this year plan to attend the commencement in April, so the chapel was a special time to publicly recognize their achievements. This year’s graduates—Eric David Miedema, Brian M. Retzlaff, Curtis Sweedyk, Kelly Warren, Bryzon Wanjala Masiboh Eldoret, Shayla Annette Newman, Bristine Kuipers, Jennifer Langmesser, Matthew C. VanDongen, and Teresa Marie Janzen were honored during the ceremony. The words of congratulations and encouragement shared by Dr. Kroeze and Dr. Harris will long be remembered by these graduates as they look forward to serving God and his kingdom in new venues using the training they have received at Kuyper.
A reception following the service provided an opportunity for the Kuyper community to congratulate and show support for these graduates as they begin a new chapter in their lives.
