Soren spent 21 days in the NICU before heading home, much to the delight of his parents and big brother Malcolm.

Update ImageElisabeth Reeves traveled and sang with the Vocal Art Ensemble on a 12-day tour of England and Scotland. The group journeyed England’s eastern coast, singing in the Norwich and Lincoln cathedrals, the Queen’s Parish Church in Sandringham Estate and St. Giles in Edinburgh. The choir also performed with two local groups: the Lincoln Orpheus Male Voice Choir in Grantham and Cadenza at St. Peter’s in Edinburgh. The Vocal Art Ensemble will also participate in the SacSings! Choral Festival in June at the Harris Center in Folsom.


Our question was: “If you could go back and give your younger self advice after graduating from college, what would you say?”

“Accept challenges and failures as part of the journey, and not as your full identity. Be quick to share your difficulties with trustworthy people, and let humility open your ears to wise counsel. Know God is in the details and is with you every step of the way. Stay active in church, helping with Sabbath school, potlucks, and committees. You are valuable and needed.”—Holly Jeske, Wellness

“I would tell my younger self to make time for international travel, even if it meant spending Friday afternoons washing cars across the College Market in order to pay for it!”—Michelle Rai, Communication

“You have the rest of your life to be serious! Enjoy your 20s!”—Jennifer Tyner, Enrollment Management and Marketing

“Entertainments will lose their luster. Use that time as an ‘investment,’ not a ‘consumable.’”—David Vye, ITSS

Progress will be taking a summer hiatus, so we include the names of those having birthdays in June-September here. (Look for Progress to return with the start of the 2014-2015 school year.) Happy birthday wishes to all!
