From the Parent Council
By Bob Bletscher

Another year at George Fox University has begun! For us, only two more years and both kids will have graduated from George Fox University. It is hard to believe.

Sue and I were driving on I-205, near Clackamas the other day and Sue yelled, "Look at that!" It nearly gave me a heart attack. Ever been there? She had just seen a billboard that read "George Fox University – The highest-rated Christian College in the West — Forbes". She then commented on what a great expression that was to our community. In a conversation with an attorney from Seattle last week, he recalled seeing a billboard in the Renton area saying, "You are 3 1/2 hours from George Fox University." You may have seen similar billboards in your area.

We feel very fortunate that our kids have the opportunity to attend George Fox University. It is one of our highest priorities as parents. We are not only interested in academic excellence, we are praying that the university will also help to instill within them skills in Christian leadership – skills that will be used for a lifetime.

We are praying for a great year on the George Fox University campus. We hope to see you at some of the events. Enjoy them while you can!
