Alumni Weekend looked different this year. Due to local COVID restrictions, we were unable to host an alumni reunion on campus. On Sabbath, April 17th, Tim Weber, ’81 delivered an inspiring message “If I Should Die Before I Wake” based on Isaiah 41:10 to our students, local church family, and alumni who watched the livestream from the comfort of their own living rooms. Dynamics, Choir, Strings, and Bellisimo shared their talents with musical praise. Afternoon Zoom Reunions were well attended for several of the honor years and people were able to catch up with one another. While not ideal, the virtual service did provide an opportunity for alumni to experience a small taste of campus life today, and the Zoom sessions gave the opportunity to chat with classmates later in the afternoon. We are grateful for each and every one of our alumni who has shaped our history and created a legacy of greatness at MEA. We look forward to the time when we will be able to meet together in person once again.
