begins with my parents who graduated in 1945 when the school was located in Delaware. Their graduation was in the morning and their wedding was held in the afternoon. They served in church ministry for 42 years, and my father served on the TKC board for 43 years beginning in 1950. My older brother attended King’s graduating in 1970 and I followed graduating in 1975. 
My life was influenced by many of the Godly people who worked at the college from President Dr. Robert Cook, the professors who influenced me and my classmates in the classroom, to Mama and Papa Short who managed the food services. Writing this letter brings to mind the names and faces of the Lord’s faithful teachers and encouragers of young men and women preparing for a wide range of careers in ministry, education, and business.   
I was blessed by the numerous and unforgettable friendships that were molded through life in the dorms, participation in intramurals, and traveling with musical teams. I’m so grateful for my spiritual and personal growth from 1971 until my graduation in 1975 on the beautiful Briarcliff Campus. Many years later I remain grateful for the influence that the King’s community had on my life.
