Welcome Anne, who will be on campus October 18-19! She says, “I am a senior biology major, with minors in psychology and biblical and religious studies at Grove City College in Western, PA. I am originally from central PA where I grew up in St. John’s Belleville Lutheran church. The past three summers I have been on staff at Camp Mount Luther in Mifflinburg, PA and have immensely enjoyed being a part of that ministry. While at school, I am heavily involved in our club field hockey team and a campus outreach ministry for individuals who are cognitively and physically disabled. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to be outdoors!”
