Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. 

Isaiah 40:31


Beth Trott Clark has transitioned from her position of director of Annual Giving to teaching in the Messiah College Graduate Program.

We are deeply grateful for Beth’s five years of service to the Annual Giving team and to the entire Office of Development. Beth has a deep passion for the mission of Messiah College and has worked to strengthen messaging to our alumni, parents and friends that underscores the important role that donors play in the lives of both current and future generations of students. She has been a wonderful asset to development, and we are very glad she will remain a part of the Messiah community.

In search of: short-term small furnished apartment. A family friend is moving to the area in February for a six-month work obligation and is looking for a small apartment to stay in by himself for the duration, within an easy commute to Harrisburg. He is a young adult and college graduate. I will send all possibilities to him, if any exist through this network. Thank you! Amy Cook
