A Note From Home…..
Everyone has a Story
Stories define us. They tell the tale of how we have become the individuals we are today. Since I lost my sweet mom a few months ago, I find that I am telling the stories of my family: where we came from, what challenges we have overcome, what victories we have won. These experiences form my childhood story. They have shaped me and continue to inform me on what has made me who I am and who I still want to become.
But the story goes on. So much of my story centers on this very special place, Eureka College. It is where I learned to think for myself, be challenged beyond my perceived limits. It is where I have made lifelong relationships, found the love of my life, established my roots and have watched my girls grow into independent, strong women with a strong education in the liberal arts. My story is still being written as I work to pay it forward for future generations to benefit as my family has here ‘Neath the Elms.
There are thousands of stories that center on this incredible place. Technology has now brought storytelling to a new medium, “The Blog.” Eureka’s Blog has inspiring stories about students, alumni, donors and the many virtues of life here ‘Neath the Elms. These stories can be found on our webpage at www.eureka.edu/category/
What is your story? I encourage you to share it with us, and perhaps it will be a feature on our Blog or as an entry in Dr. Logsdon’s ‘Neath the Elms series that appears here in the Maroon and Gold. Send us your stories to email@example.com and don’t forget to include a photo. We are eager to hear from you!
