When Cory Martin ’00 walked across the stage at graduation, he certainly didn’t expect that God would lead him to pursue jail ministry. He had just earned his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and planned to become a youth pastor.
Women’s Golf Coach Chris Hess ’93 is known for his belief that “every day is a gift.”
During the summer of 2012, Hess was diagnosed with basal cell melanoma. He underwent surgery and was told he was cancer-free. However, in the summer of 2014, Hess discovered the same type of spot, further inside his ear. After some tests, it was discovered that the cancer had returned and that it had spread from its original location. He had surgery in August 2014, just before students returned to school for the year.
