Calvin-Wire: June 15, 2012

Thankful for Calvin's new president

On June 11, the Christian Reformed Church of North America voted to ratify Michael K. Le Roy as the 10th president of Calvin College. He will be inaugurated on Saturday, October 20, 2012.

Le Roy and his wife, Andrea Nelson Le Roy, who were interviewed recently, have three children: son Dana and daughters Hannah and Astrid. His family was involved in his decision to consider a move to Calvin. He discusses the discernment process and mentions this latest "adventure" for their family in the interview he gave with Synod, the governing body of all churches in the Christian Reformed denomination.

Thankful for the Byker's service

As we praise God for Calvin's new president, we thank him for Gaylen and Susan Byker's 17 years of service to Calvin, for which they were recently awarded the Spoelhof Lifetime Achievement Award. Be sure to read the online Spark story, "Generosity and Gratitude," with extra links and information about the Bykers. Watch a short video of highlights from "A Byker Farewell."

On the Bykers' last day on campus, Monday, June 25, all are invited to a farewell reception at 10 a.m. on the Commons Lawn. Contact with questions.

Alumni and friends

For the 17th consecutive year, Calvin has posted a top 25 finish in the final NCAA III Learfield Sports Directors Cup standings. Calvin is one of only six schools in the country to finish in the top 25 every year that the competition has been held at the NCAA III level.

And there's
no slowing down for Calvin's Most Valuable Runner, Dan Kerr. During the cross country season, Kerr was named the MIAA’s Most Valuable Player and earned a spot on the All-MIAA team for the third straight year. Read more about how his season ended.
