The enduring value of ‘Culture for Service’

ASSISTANT EDITOR Brian Yoder Schlabach ’07

WHEN I ATTENDED Goshen College, little did I understand the enduring value of my education, because it was not immediately apparent. Yes, I was accepted into several top graduate schools, and yes, I excelled academically in those programs. I am grateful to many good GC professors for that. But academic excellence was not the only enduring value. Twenty-five years later, when I was in the midst of developing a global health experiential learning program at Cornell University, a close friend observed: “So, you are trying to make Cornell the Goshen College of the Ivy League?” We laughed aloud, but he was right. The enduring value of our motto, “Culture for Service,” surfaced these decades later. What we learn at Cornell or at Goshen College is much bigger than ourselves. My career became about having deep understandings of the places where my knowledge and discovery can be useful. To listen really carefully to, “what are the needs of the world?” And, “how can we respond to that creatively?” That happens when students are put in situations of relating and interacting with the world, and then are challenged to think deeply about it — whether global or local, through an internship, service project or some sort of creative project, research, policy engagement, entrepreneurship or working on sustainable development in a community. Learning that connects the world with the best of the academy is truly exciting and transformative for our students. Former Goshen College President J. Lawrence Burkholder wrote: “College mottos are usually innocuous. But at Goshen, ‘Culture for Service’ is a reality and needs to be affirmed at a time when a materialistic, technically oriented culture pulls in other directions.” This year we are renewing and deepening our commitment to “Culture for Service” through our new Center for Community Engagement (learn more on pages 5 and 14). True to Goshen College, this new center connects our liberal arts core curriculum with career networks and internships, summer camps for children with new programs for employed adults, and global education with local settings. It is an ambitious initiative that has already attracted significant funding. What Goshen College distinctively adds to the educational equation is something that a public institution, or even a secular private university like Cornell, cannot: the mentorship and friendship of faculty rooted in the way of Jesus, in a learning environment shaped by the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. Where joy is cultivated and active love for God and neighbor is part of our mission. That is our distinctive flavor, the saltiness that we persist in bringing to an increasingly materialistic and generic world of higher education, as well as to our local and global communities.

What is our community engagement?

How students engage the community

The impact of alumni in Elkhart County

The directors of the college’s new Center for Community Engagement introduce what community engagement means today.

Meet six students who have had unique college opportunities to learn experientially and connect with the local community at the same time.

Meet 13 of our 3,407 alumni who live in Elkhart County and are great examples of the ways alumni deeply shape various corners of this community.

About the cover Illustration by Hannah Gerig Meyer ’08 Community engagement is rooted in a place and in its people. While this college may be more broadly known for its history of global community engagement, our local community engagement goes back to our founding in 1894 as the Elkhart Institute of Science, Industry and the Arts. Since then, Goshen College has played an important and enduring role in shaping the people and culture of Northern Indiana — and in particular, Elkhart County — but also being deeply shaped by this community we call home. This topographic map of part of Elkhart County represents the land, landmarks and pathways of this particular place, and the chain of purple paper people represent the partnerships and relationships we seek to build, hand-in-hand, together.

KULP HALL MEMORIES Did you ever live in Kulp Hall? Built 115 years ago in 1906 as a women’s dormitory, it is the oldest residence hall on campus. Kulp now serves as a co-ed facility that can house up to 68 juniors and seniors. We recently asked alumni and friends to share their favorite Kulp memories on social media; read some of their responses! Sharon Risser ’74 Freshman and Sophomore year; it was great. Wide halls, small rooms. Fire escape worked great when we came in after female curfew

Kristina Everingham Kartikeyan ’02 It’s amazing how this picture evokes such cherished memories. Freshman and Sophomore years ’98-’00 on the 2nd floor. My grandmother was there 60 years earlier and oh my, the scandalous stories she told! I’m only sad that my aunt and mother missed out on the joys of Kulp life. Michelle Yoder Horning ’91 Lived in the same room my mom lived in 30 years earlier. Sammy Rosario ’13 One time, roomies from downstairs came to our floor and inundated our floor with balloons they even drew our faces on them. Pretty neat

Sharon Wilson ’84 Yes! K2W. Friends for life. We graduated in ’84, and still get together regularly, despite long distances. We attended each others’ weddings, cried with and prayed for each other in crises, and now congratulate each other on the birth of grandchildren.

Ally (Hawkins) Stiffney ’10 Climbing out on the little roof, stealing utensils, getting ready in the big bathroom, dance parties, staying up way too late, prank wars, roomie meals!! Lois Bare ’79 My grandmother lived there in 1907. My daughter lived there 1987-88.

Steve Walter ’87 Second Spring Term, Kulp 1 with roomie Anthony Beiler ‘89. Super hot summer month hanging out in a kiddie pool we bought at GL Perry? Held it to the roof of the car driving back to the dorm and plopped it in the lawn to cool off. Melinda Spohn Beatty ’97 Kulp was kinda magical, with its vines, squeaky floors and pretty balconies, which were great for journaling and watching the strange campus goingson below. Adored my time there and the people I shared it with! Sheryl Nespor ’74 Kulp hall… small, cozy rooms. Tiny closets… Wide halls, close to dining hall. Character, history, charm!

Resuming SST presents challenges and opportunities After a year-long Study-Service Term (SST) hiatus due to the pandemic, in which the office of international education reviewed and re-evaluated the program, 18 Goshen College students traveled to the Southwest United States during the summer to spend six weeks exploring the Navajo and Hopi cultures as part of a new SST unit called Southwest Indigenous Perspectives. Before the pandemic, two off-campus immersive courses in the southwest were already in the works, hoping to appeal to students who might not be as able to travel abroad, such as international students or studentathletes. However, when COVID-19 led to the cancellation of SST units in Ecuador and Senegal, the planned offcampus courses became the inspiration for an alternative SST experience for students who still needed to complete their international education credits. As further changes to global education at Goshen College take shape, sequential SST courses will be offered over the course of several semesters, including May or summer terms. In this model, at least two of the courses for “study” and “service” will be experiential and immersive courses on or off campus. This fall, international SST resumed with a small group of students traveling to Ecuador. Learn more at Fall / Winter 2021 | BULLETIN 5

New Fisher Terrace embodies John & Pauline Fishers’ legacy John J. ’48 and Pauline Clemens Fisher ’48 left a lasting impact on Goshen College. As a longtime professor of English, John’s love of words and connection to Irish poetry are threads that continue to weave through the fabric of campus today.

John and Pauline’s daughters, Susan Fisher Miller ’80 and Margaret Aeschliman ’87, are also GC alumni, as are four of their grandchildren, including Peter Miller ’09 who follows in John’s footsteps as an assistant professor of English at Goshen College.

As a testament to their legacy, family, friends and former students dedicated a new Fisher Terrace, built in the Fishers’ honor during Homecoming Weekend.

To honor their parents’ legacy beyond the endowed scholarship they left, the Fisher family also wanted to enhance a campus common space and promote conversation and fellowship among all members of the campus community. Thus, they dreamt up the idea for the Fisher Terrace.

Through a charitable donation from the John and Pauline Fisher estate, the outdoor area immediately east of the Leaf Raker Café in the Union Building has been renovated as a dining and gathering space, with a new pergola and seating. The terrace will also soon incorporate poetry displayed around the surrounding garden, including some by Irish poets that John connected with on campus and on classes he led to Ireland.

“When you’re grabbing a sandwich on the way to teach class or finish a paper, you can pause on the terrace for poetry and conversation with friends,” said Fisher Miller. “It’s a nice fusion of culture and service our parents would have appreciated.”

AN INTRODUCTION BY Erika Buhring, Suzanne Ehst, David Kendall, Jan Shetler ’78, Duane Stoltzfus ’81 — the directors of the Center for Community Engagement

Community engagement has been central to Goshen College since our founding, and our motto “Culture for Service” captures it well. But it was explicitly affirmed in 1968 when the faculty unanimously voted to require a service-focused international semester in the core curriculum. After 52 years, our commitment to community engagement has grown only stronger. However, much of this past engagement with partners has largely been in the service of the institution and our students. The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) was created this year to propel the college further into the next phase of community-based initiatives, centralizing reciprocal partnerships

14 BULLETIN | Fall / Winter 2021

that advance work in the community in the context of our students’ learning. The CCE will provide guidance, training and resources to strengthen the work already being done with community partners. Currently, each major at the college requires a practicum that sends students out to apply their work in the world, and many of our adult and graduate students are already deeply invested in community jobs as they advance their education. Some courses visit partners to enhance student learning and assist the organization’s work too. Many alumni host student interns or make connections that enhance career paths. Study-Service Term

requires a six-week, service-learning assignment, and first-year students have an annual service day in their Identity, Culture and Community class. Additionally, courses for continuing education in Spanish and industry skills are offered. The CCE will support all of these programs to re-examine, expand and solidify reciprocal partnerships to respond more effectively to the needs of the community in the context of this existing work. In addition, we will develop new partnerships that will have an identifiable impact on the well-being of people in our local region, and particularly in Elkhart County. We will increase place-based activities that work with local partners to

address the issue of the low rate of access to education. We’re reaching out to partners in neighborhoods with the lowest post-secondary educational attainment rates, where income, race and ethnicity are correlated. A first step has been to listen to these partners so that expanding educational access for the residents themselves is at the heart of our initiatives. From that work new partnerships will be identified that bring together the needs of the community with opportunities for engaging our students in meaningful, placebased learning initiatives. Thus, experiences will flourish for years to come through passionate community-based partnerships.

FROM THE EDITOR Our mission begins: “Goshen College transforms local and global communities…” It is also true that our local and global communities transform us. As we ponder our local community engagement, we ask: What would Elkhart County be like if Goshen College had never been formed? And how different would Goshen College be if it began somewhere other than here in this land filled with diverse people — from Amish to Evangelicals, from Appalachian migrants to Mexican immigrants, from artists to manufacturers — who are exceptionally community minded? Meet our students and local alumni who demonstrate what community engagement looks like, how it happens and what kind of an impact it can have — on us and the people we engage with.

Music for Social Change — a minor program of study or concentration at the college and the first undergraduate program of its kind — is designed to intersect with initiatives in Elkhart County and to give students experiential learning opportunities to use music education for youth to help bring about social change.

Petenei Tacü ’22 music major | Phesama, India In my country, we teach math, we teach science, but it is primarily the wealthy students who receive music lessons. My parents taught me to give back to the community, and taking Music for Social Change made my focus clearer. This course made sense to me, and I connected with it personally. Part of my internship was spent in the GC Leaf Alive Camp for local school children this summer. I saw how normally quiet kids responded when they heard music that represented their cultural heritage. After my studies, I want to return to India. We need a purpose in life, and my purpose is to help children learn and experience music, while preserving our culture, and inspiring social change.

The Sustainability Leadership Semester (SLS) at the college’s Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center is a 13-week fall semester, residential program for undergraduate students that explores the many ways we can contribute to sustainable, resilient futures for our communities in the midst of our rapidly changing planet. Students discover the sustainability of places through canoeing 70 miles from the top of the watershed at Merry Lea to Lake Michigan, hiking trails, and interacting with various community members and sustainability professionals. Within SLS, students dig into personal leadership development while also reading widely to connect with insights and ideas from diverse disciplines.

The college’s Laboratory Kindergarten has been in operation by Goshen College since 1959, and joined in a partnership between the Education Department and Goshen Community Schools in 2008. Education students work alongside the teacher as they complete field experiences in the kindergarten.

Anastasia Stevens ’24

TESOL and secondary education double major Rushville, Indiana The most impactful piece of working in the College Kindergarten for me this year has been the power of connection. I get to see scaffolding for students with exceptional needs, like I’ve been learning about in my Exceptional Learners class. In another class I learn about the development of language and writing in young students, and I get to watch this development firsthand by observing writers’ workshops. Through observing the College Kindergarten, I’ve been challenged to think critically about classroom design, and the power of co-teaching. I’ve

learned about the role of collaboration in early educational settings, and I’ve been an active participant through planning lessons, and working individually with students. The connections I’ve built with professionals, and with the children themselves, have truly reinforced my passion for working with younger students. The College Kindergarten is one of so many ways the teacher education program at Goshen has given me the opportunity to connect my learning in the classroom with real experiences in the broader community.

My experience as a participant in the Sustainability Leadership Semester (SLS) at Merry Lea helped shape the lens through which I see the world. I saw how sustainability — a word I found confusing and undefined prior to my SLS experience — applies not only to environmental issues, but to culture, social and environmental justice, language, art and community. Sustainability is inherently interdisciplinary and that means it’s woven into every aspect of my life no matter what my career path looks like. Our canoe trip, treks through the many ecosystems at Merry Lea and conversations with people of diverse perspectives, shifted my understanding of relationships. I learned to see that community is not only inclusive of all people but is much broader than the human world. My neighbor is the egret on the wetland, the bluestem grass in the prairie and the deer in the forest. All beings must be included in creating a world that supports us now and those who will live after us. Sustainability comes in many forms and is meant for everyone.

All nursing majors have the opportunity to gain plenty of hands-on learning through a variety of opportunities for nursing clinical experiences, including many right across the street at one of the best hospitals in Northern Indiana — Goshen Hospital. During the pandemic, the nursing majors were even able to have first-hand experience caring for COVID patients and helping manage a very difficult health crisis.

Kiprop Kiprotich ’22 nursing major | Eldoret, Kenya Caring and learning through the pandemic was a battle we fought hard. No matter how much we tried, it was difficult to win. We were always tired, but that never stopped us from serving and learning from our community. As a nursing assistant and student, I felt consumed. All the stress from taking care of my patients, performing CPR, seeing my patients and their families cry almost broke me. I had lost my bearing, but that wasn’t a reason to not care. It’s so hard to operate under exhaustion, guilt or fear of COVID-19. I remember all my patients; some were too young to die, but we couldn’t save them. Being from a culture that rarely talks about death, it was traumatizing to have end-of-life discussions, but I couldn’t avoid it. My dying patients taught me alot: to be grateful and prayerful. Those lessons still keep me going. Out of everything I’ve done or will ever do, nothing can compare to the joy and fulfillment of seeing my patients going home, especially from the ICU after spending weeks on the ventilator and being intubated. These were people from my community. I was always ecstatic releasing them to their families. The college and local community has given me so much that I felt I could return the favor by serving it and caring for its people.

During the summer of 2021, the new Southwest Indigenous Perspectives Study-Service Term (SST) unit was the first domestic SST for the college. After taking several study courses on campus to prepare, 18 students spent six weeks exploring the Navajo and Hopi cultures, as well as leading the summer math and reading camps at the Peace Academic Center in Arizona.

Anna Smucker ’22 graphic design major | Goshen Initially, I had signed up for the Ecuador SST because I was excited about applying my Spanish knowledge and language in a different context. When the Ecuador SST was canceled [due to the pandemic], I chose this SST course because I hadn’t learned a lot about Indigenous Peoples in a global context and I wanted to know more about Navajo and Hopi people. Also being able to travel, hike, and explore the mountains with a group sounded like an added bonus!

Opened in 2020, the Center for Communication Studies at Goshen College brings together the awardwinning television, radio, print and other media curriculars under one roof. Students are able to meet in one place and collaborate as one team. A department that has won a steady stream of statewide and national awards has found a new home with high energy and round-the-clock activity, with Globe Radio announcers on the air and student staff in a bustling newsroom.

Gabriella Klopfenstein ’22 public relations major | Goshen The Center for Communication Studies has become my second home. I’ve had the opportunity to hold many leadership positions, but most recently as president of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and the student station manager of 91.1 The Globe, our student-run radio station on campus. In these various leadership

When we first stayed with host families on the Navajo Reservation, I was immediately struck by my host family’s hospitality as they welcomed us into their homes as strangers. After asking questions and doing a lot of listening and learning, I remember being told a lot about the daily challenges that my host sister and mom faced over the years for being Native American, such as discrimination, hatred and prejudice. Yet, this was balanced out by stories of their incredible strength and courage to keep pushing on. I felt honored to be in a household with three generations of women who showed us nothing but patience, strength and kindness.

roles, I have experienced more than just on-campus opportunities. For my internships, through connections from PRSSA, I worked with organizations from Goshen and Elkhart. These opportunities not only shaped my skills and helped me find my true passion, but also gave me mentors and friends. My time in the communication department has fostered my love of learning, new relationships and prepared me for my future.

Zulma Prieto ‘01 Co-editor and co-publisher of El Puente, English as New Language teacher After moving to Goshen from Colombia in 1990, Zulma Prieto ‘01 and her husband Jimmer Prieto started “El Puente,” a bilingual newspaper serving northern Indiana in 1992. With family and friends, the Prietos used their publication to build bridges in Hispanic and Anglo communities. They also taught young people and adults over the decades and helped create a range of community groups. After we gave our lives to the Lord in Colombia, this is where he sent us to serve. We were tools of his will and we hope we have served well. We were able to work with people from across the world in this community and with different churches and groups. It’s a matter of community in love. This is more than justice. When you work with justice, you have to choose sides. When you choose to work for love, you’re committed to everyone. You have to listen and learn and work alongside others, even if you don’t completely agree with them. We learned a lot and had a lot of help from others. You start work on the shoulders of what others have done and we hope that others can work on the shoulders of what little we have done.

Kevin Deary ‘00 President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County Kevin Deary ‘00 came to Goshen from Boston in 1994 to be the executive director of the Goshen Boys & Girls Club. He became president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County in 2005 and oversaw the addition of three new clubhouses in Middlebury, Nappanee and Elkhart. Prior to the pandemic, the organization served more than 4,000 youth a year. He is also a new member of the Goshen College Board of Directors. Making sure our kids are healthy and have the support they need is a key part of building a healthy community. We do that by providing safe places for kids, by helping families and parents partner with the schools, by working with the court system. It’s important to connect with kids and provide hope and inspiration in a genuine way for kids who don’t have it or don’t see it. I help teach staff and inspire volunteers to carry out that work of helping kids.

Dan Nafziger ‘83 Chief medical officer and infectious disease consultant for Goshen Hospital; former health officer for the Elkhart County Health Department Dan Nafziger ‘83 has been a leader in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. His role involves assisting Goshen Health in improving the health of the people it serves and also keeping its colleagues safe and healthy. The administrative part of Dan’s job has an aspect of making sure that people with the right credentials are providing care for their patients, as well as ensuring that the hospital provides high quality

care. Being a part-time practicing physician, when at times most of the hospital’s inpatients had COVID, meant trying to educate other doctors on how to care for patients as new information became available.

then learn all I could for the best science-based response. I wanted to be able to provide a level of care for our patients that was no different than organizations with many infectious disease physicians.

As a former public health officer, longtime infectious disease doctor and hospital administrative leader, it is easy to see how I might be uniquely positioned to have a positive impact on my community’s response to COVID-19. I tried to provide an early alert to our health department and my health system so that we could prepare for what was to come and

When I attended Goshen College, its five core values of Christcenteredness, passionate learning, servant leadership, compassionate peacemaking and global citizenship had not been officially adopted but were already part of what was taught in support of a ‘Culture for Service’ worldview. Those values drive the ‘why’ of my personal response to this very day.

Mary Ellen Meyer ‘54 Co-creator of Millrace Cohousing Neighborhood, Goshen Mary Ellen Meyer ‘54 had lived in the Shanklin Park Millrace neighborhood for 50 years with her husband Al Meyer ’50, long before it was even called that. They loved the neighborhood with its intergenerational mix, and wanted to live there as long as they could. Mary Ellen became a leader in establishing a 14-unit cohousing development with the front doors of small individual houses facing center lawns, rain gardens, shared parking and gathering spaces. They began the journey to share the idea, form a group, attend a myriad of meetings with the city to further their proposal, work with a contractor and begin to literally build community which is now almost complete (most of whom are also GC alumni) along the Goshen Millrace Canal near downtown. I believe that the best way I can work at bringing in the kind of world God intended is to build relationships and to try to follow the example of Jesus in ways to work in that direction. To me, this means respecting the value of each person, learning ways to listen to others respectfully even if I don’t agree, and being willing to change my own opinions when cooperation benefits the whole community. I have learned that working together accomplishes more than each faction working to benefit itself. And I think that for me, ‘thinking globally and acting locally’ is the best I can do.

Rafael Barahona ‘01 Partner at LightBox in Goshen Rafael Barahona ‘01 first arrived in Goshen from Canada in 1993 and started his freshman year at Bethany Christian High School. The shift was initially a very difficult one, but over the years, Rafael has grown to love Goshen. He and his family moved back in 2012 and Rafael has firmly embedded himself in the community. He has served on the Mayor’s Arts Council, the Latino Advisory Committee and is joining the board of the Goshen Chamber of Commerce. Rafael is a partner at LightBox, a design studio that provides visual identity and branding services to local nonprofits as they do important work in the community. When I came back to Goshen nearly ten years ago, I had absolutely no idea how I would get involved. I have always had a penchant for creative work, but only really discovered design after I had already graduated from Goshen College with my psychology degree. After coming back to Goshen from Virginia, the community was simultaneously familiar and a new landscape. It was such an encouraging community and I felt almost pushed into starting my own business. As it developed, I really wanted to lean into making a difference in the community and getting beyond ‘making things look nice.’ I have felt really blessed to work alongside amazing clients who are already doing good work where I live, work and play.

Jon Cutrell ‘75 Designer and gardener of DeFries Gardens, also known as “the Calendar Garden,” near New Paris, Indiana Jon Cutrell ‘75 became friends with Elizabeth DeFries, who had lived in an old brick farmhouse with her husband, Dr. John DeFries. When John died, she donated the 13-acre property east of New Paris, Indiana, to Elkhart County Parks, and later funded its development. Their friendship eventually resulted in Jon becoming the

designer and gardener of the Calendar Garden, a one-acre showpiece that reflects the four seasons of northern Indiana. The unique flowering calendar is enjoyed by many visitors year-round. I have enjoyed interaction with the natural world since I was a child. For me it is both a spiritual experience as well as an aesthetic one. After majoring in art at Goshen College, I found that work in landscape design was a good combination of these interests. During the summers there I worked at a local

landscape company which gave the added benefit of hands-on experience. For several decades I was happy to do a wide variety of jobs for individual customers as well as various institutions but eventually was drawn to working more with public space. One project that fascinated me was the idea of making a garden that would be based on my visualization of the annual cycle of the seasons. I have been happy that the Calendar Garden has become a way for local people to appreciate the way we fit into the cycles of nature that we all experience. Fall / Winter 2021 | BULLETIN 23

Arvis Dawson ‘76 Elkhart City Council member and retired educator After graduating from Goshen College, Arvis Dawson ‘76 worked as a social worker and then as a teacher for 31 years in Elkhart Community Schools. He is serving his eighth term on the Elkhart City Council, a total of 28 years so far in two different stints, and formerly worked for the Elkhart mayor on the Board of Works. He is currently serving as a member of the Goshen College Alumni Council. My parents were always part of a group helping me and motivating others. When I became an adult, I saw it was something I needed to do because it was done for me. When you grow up in Chicago in a community that large, you don’t see things happen, you hear about them happening. In Elkhart and Elkhart County, you see things happen. Once you realize you can have an impact on making those things happen, it becomes a natural thing. Goshen College helped because it simply gave me opportunities I never would have had if I hadn’t attended college there. I tell people all the time, Goshen College changed my life. I believe it was faith that got me there and helped me succeed. People there, some of the first people I encountered who were Caucasian, treated me in a Christ-like way.

Chris Kingsley ‘04 President and CEO, Lacasa Inc. Chris Kingsley ‘04 has been president and CEO at Lacasa, a nonprofit community development organization working in Elkhart County, for three years (previously led by Moses Beachy ’57, Arden Shank ’74 and Larry Gautsche ’74). Lacasa is a 51-year-old agency founded from a concern for the housing conditions of migrant farm workers. Over the decades it has expanded activities and focus in the areas of housing and

community empowerment services. It has elevated the standard of housing in the community and offers a full schedule of classes and one-on-one financial empowerment services to help build community. I resonate strongly with the idea of unlocking God-given potential. In my work in the community, I get to see that through restoration and repurposing of buildings, revitalization of neighborhoods, and, most rewardingly for me, strengthened individuals and households. The best way for me to

It’s an exciting time to be in mental health. We are expanding prevention and early intervention services, knowing we can reduce the severity of illness and substance use by moving our efforts further upstream. We’re embracing consumer voice and lived experience, recognizing that clients bring valuable insight to the treatment process. And we’re learning new ways to deliver services that will help more people get faster access to care when they need it. I love this work as I’ve been surrounded by bright and caring people who engage in the sacred work of walking with others on a journey of healing.

capture my ‘why’ is to ask people to think about those moments when you see a light turn on for someone and all of a sudden there is hope. That moment when hope enters a person — or even a neighborhood — is so powerful and something that really inspires and motivates me. As we walk alongside people attaining goals they thought were out of reach, we do not own or create the potential, but we get to be a part of releasing it. I’m wired to cheer people on, and working with Lacasa gives me a way to do this. Fall / Winter 2021 | BULLETIN 25

Allan Kauffman ‘71 Former mayor of the City of Goshen; member of the Goshen Community Schools Board of School Trustees Allan Kauffman ‘71 was mayor of Goshen from 1997 to 2015. During his time as mayor, he focused on quality of life initiatives, believing that community development is economic development. He also helped the growing community navigate race relations. Prior to that, he had been on the Goshen City Council for 16 years. He has been a member of Goshen Noon Kiwanis for 47 years and started serving on the Goshen Community Schools Board of School Trustees in 2021. I am following in my dad’s footsteps. My father, Paul, was the first blue-collar worker to serve on the Goshen School Board. My family also volunteered for a lot of things in our community, so I continue to find ways to do that. The late Jerry Trolz used to often say ’Service is the rent we pay for life on earth.’ Goshen College taught me the value of ‘Culture for Service’ and how to do that in the place I loved. Being mayor wasn’t a sacrifice because I believe in the power of co-creating in our country. There are many passionate and talented people here that have made Goshen what it is today. I have an emotional attachment to Goshen, so when people asked what my vision was for the city, I said it sounds trite, but my vision is that it’s always a place we’re proud to call ‘home.’ Because if others see that, they’ll want it, too.

Tavi Mounsithiraj ‘94 Co-founder of Goshen Soccer Academy Tavi Mounsithiraj ‘94 has spent most of his adult life helping to successfully grow a love and passion for the sport of soccer in and around Goshen. He started playing soccer at Goshen College in 1991 and coach Dwain Hartzler ’71 also asked him to help coach in the Goshen Youth Soccer Organization. After graduating, Tavi became an assistant coach on the GC Men’s Soccer Team and then was head coach from 2001 to 2013. As a culmination of a life devoted to soccer and the local community, he and others founded the Goshen Soccer Academy in 2019 where he is now part-owner and co-manages the facility with Kyle Stiffney ‘10, whom Tavi coached since he was eight years old all the way through college. I am who I am today because of Dwain Hartzler and what he did in soccer. I’m just trying to continue what he started in this area. I wouldn’t be who I am today without Goshen College, what I learned and the people along the way. Dwain sought me out as a studentathlete and gave me the opportunity to play soccer and get an education.


Chad ’89 and Tracy ’90 Klopfenstein Co-owners of The Chief in Goshen and Granger, Indiana; Tracy is also an art teacher at Concord Junior High School and Chad is vice president of engineering at Nishikawa Cooper LLC The Chief started as a small ice cream shop in Goshen in 1962, and Chad ’89 and Tracy ’90 Klopfenstein joined the ownership team in 2018. Chad’s business and engineering skills, combined with Tracy’s creativity and

connections to school-aged employees, have allowed them to continue The Chief’s popularity in Goshen and to expand, opening a new store in Granger this year. When we purchased The Chief, we felt strongly that we were to continue their long-standing tradition of giving back to the community. This community has fully supported this business. It is important to us to support local charities that provide services to the people of Goshen and Elkhart.

Fostering community begins with our staff, and we strive to provide a fun, supportive environment for our young workers, many of whom we watch learn skills in their first job. We love seeing the community gather at our business. There is a spirit of camaraderie and happiness. Just watching the children — Blue Moon ice cream smeared on their faces — playing tag can put a smile on anyone’s face. Our slogan is ‘Make the world a sweeter place,’ and that is what we are trying to do, one scoop at a time.

Teaching and learning about identity, culture and community EVERY FALL, I have the privilege of co-teaching a section of the general education course that all first-year students take called Identity, Culture and Community, or ICC as it’s commonly known on campus. This course has replaced the colloquium course that students took for decades. Over eight years of co-teaching, I’ve seen the evolution of the course from what was a bumpy start to a course with solid student evaluations. We have honed the course to help answer the important question: How do people with diverse identities live together in a vibrant community? What could be more important and relevant than that in our fractured world? Through a set of common readings and discussions, students are challenged — the first time for many — to think deeply about their own identities and how those are shaped by their communities and the cultures around them. We read:

• •

Make Your Home Among Strangers, a novel by Jennine Capó Crucet about a first-generation student struggling and ultimately learning to thrive in a collegiate academic environment and how that shapes her identity Citizen: An American Lyric, a book of poetry by Claudia Rankine dealing with some of the most challenging racial concerns of our time and the past Monique and the Mango Rains, a Peace Corps memoir by Kris Holloway set in Mali, a former Study-Service Term (SST) host country

Along the way, our ICC section gets a chance to do service together, share times of fellowship outside of the classroom and just build a learning community. Each section is intentionally selected to represent the diversity of our student body and in that way we can safely challenge and support each other as we learn about our differences. I could go on and on about this course and my belief in its relevance to our world, but I’d be remiss to not acknowledge that teaching this course has also deeply impacted my own thinking about my identity, my communities and the cultures in which they lie. As an assignment, I’d encourage you to read our common texts and dream with us of a world where the diversity in our cultures and communities is not only welcomed, but is part of what we cherish most about them. 28 BULLETIN | Fall / Winter 2021

Brunk received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Goshen College in 1947 and her master’s degree from the Frances Payne Bolton (Cleveland) School of Nursing. She was a nurse in Indianapolis before returning to teach at Goshen College in 1951.

Linton earned a bachelor’s of science degree at Michigan State University in 1975, a master’s degree in biology at Michigan Technological University in 1982, and a Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky in 1995.

Following eight years of teaching, Brunk moved to Korea to work at Pusan Children’s Charity Hospital from 1959-1967 with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), where she cared for orphaned children after the Korean War. In 2012, the Korean government honored her and other nurses for their dedication and service. During the Vietnam War, Mabel refused to pay taxes and cared for her mother near Harrisonburg, Virginia, until her mother’s death in 1977. She worked at Ten Thousand Villages in Akron, Pennsylvania, then moved to Tampa, Florida and later Charlottesville, Virginia, where she provided private care for many homebound children. Brunk joined Christian Peacemaker Teams and at age 80, traveled to Iraq and Palestine to promote peace between Muslims and other groups.

During her time at Goshen, she was active with Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center, conducting research on Ambystomatid (mole) salamanders at the facility. Linton helped to develop the environmental science major at Goshen College in 1999, and her involvement in strategic planning at Merry Lea led to the development of Rieth Village, the first Platinum LEED-certified building in Indiana. As a published poet, Linton’s passion for the natural world came through in her poetry. A wetland poetry session at the Wisconsin Wetlands Association’s annual science conference is named in her honor. Survivors are her wife, Kathy Kauffman; her sister Barbara; her brothers William (Judy) and Robert (Patricia) Linton; and 68 nieces and nephews.

Ways you too can help grow Goshen Donate! With your generous contributions to the Goshen College Fund and Student Aid Fund we are able to make the “Distinctively Goshen” experience accessible for all students. Referrals are one of our top sources for students who end up enrolling. Refer students to us who have not heard of or considered Goshen College (and make sure we have contact info for your own high school children/ grandchildren), but whom you think would value this learning experience and community. Organize a group of high school students in your area (or your own children/grandchildren) and bring them to campus for a visit. The Admissions Office can help with your planning and with travel reimbursement. Pray regularly for our admission counselors on the road, prospective students traveling for a visit and for those making decisions at the college.

Investing in the community, ahead of the curve BY JOE SPRINGER ’80, curator, Mennonite Historical Library

UPON HER COLLEGE graduation and with support from her local congregation Assembly Mennonite Church, Rebecca Yoder Neufeld ’74 created a new program to assist a growing number of Goshen Community Schools’ K-12 students who were living in households where English was not the primary language. Collaborations among Rebecca, Chandler Elementary School Principal B.J. Miller ’57 and others — first volunteer, then grant-funded — positioned Goshen Community 56 BULLETIN | Fall / Winter 2021

Schools to be ahead of the curve as it adapted to what would soon become a dramatic enrollment increase of such students. In 1979, the college’s Education Department received national recognition for preparing its students to teach in bilingual/ bicultural programs. Whether volunteer or paid, in school classrooms or church basements, many GC students, faculty and alumni continue to invest skills and time to strengthen English language capacities among newcomers to Elkhart County and elsewhere.

Pictured: In 1978, to complete her junior field work requirement in college, Brenda Hostetler Meyer ’79 (left) tutored Hispanic students, including Carmen Alvarado (right) at Chandler Elementary School in Goshen, where Brenda herself had attended years earlier. Brenda later served as director of Goshen Community School’s English as a New Language (ENL) program, beginning in 1989 in a one-third-time position with two half-time teachers assisting. When she left in 1996, she was serving full-time with 15 other teachers working in the program. Currently, one-third of students in Goshen Community Schools are English Language Learners and the district has the largest program in the state for a school district of its size.
