We are blessed this year, as always, with a remarkable freshman class. One of our entering students, Beth Birchfield of Montgomery, brings with her a zeal for helping the people of Haiti. In her short life, she has already made 18 trips there. Commenting on her most recent visit to Haiti, Beth wrote a few days ago, “I learned to love big because our God is big.”
The world is better because of Beth Birchfield.
