Thanks to all who helped make the Annual HCU Golf Tournament a notable success.

Thought for the week: We enjoyed seeing the President’s List and the Dean’s list for Spring 2012. It’s always a joy to see students excel. It reminds us of the happy side of Romans 12:15, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.” We know that life is more than A averages, but we highly respect the work behind such grades. There’s much to say for an attitude of excellence (Colossians 3:23-24, Titus 3:8 and 14).
