A President’s Report foreword from Trustee Scott Heintzelman

W

hy do you give to Messiah when you are currently paying your daughter’s tuition – aren’t you giving enough? It is a fair question and something many current parents ask (or graduates ask who may still be paying back loans). For me the answer is simple – it is an investment of love that pays dividends. My wife and I know countless Messiah alums who used their education at Messiah to not only positively change their own life but so often a much broader mission field. Our mission is to educate men and women

toward maturity of intellect, character and Christian faith in preparation for lives of service, leadership and reconciliation in church and society. In our society (and in our churches) we have so much divisiveness and hate. I truly believe what the world needs is Messiah College graduates. As a CPA and current Trustee of the college, I can assure you we operate our finances with fiscal discipline. But costs to educate our students are ever increasing. My dream is to not let Messiah become a school that only a select few can afford to attend, but rather a school that is within reach for many.

In order for this to happen we need to offer scholarships to students and that requires making an investment. I urge everyone reading this to start giving or give more to this vital cause of developing our next generation of leaders who can change the world. Join me in giving back with love! —Scott Heintzelman ’89, Messiah College Trustee

SCHOLARSHIPS THE FOLLOWING SCHOLARSHIPS, ESTABLISHED DURING THE 2016-17 ACADEMIC YEAR, ARE AN INVESTMENT IN THE LIVES OF STUDENTS THAT WILL YIELD FRUITFUL AND LASTING RETURNS.

MARLIN ’76 AND NANCY BENEDICT GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT Marlin and Nancy Benedict met while attending Messiah College. He graduated in 1976, and she finished a nursing degree education at another institution. (Messiah’s nursing program was a few years away from being accredited.) They say they highly appreciate the totality of the Messiah experience in developing the whole person and, in particular, the spiritual growth and faith attributes and opportunities Messiah provided. Following graduation, Marlin served on the Alumni Council from 1981 to 1986, which he also chaired. He also served on the Messiah College Board of Trustees from 1990 to 1998 and chaired the Committee on Finance. They have financially supported the College for more than 40 years. All of their five children graduated from

Messiah: Kevin ’02, Erin ’04 (married to Matthew Bills ’04), Alex ’06, Philip ’10, and Mary Roxanne ’12. The couple recently established two new scholarship endowments at Messiah College—one in accounting (Marlin’s major) and one in nursing (Nancy’s major). We are so grateful they are willing to help students afford the Messiah College experience in a most meaningful way through these scholarships. Marlin said, “We value our relationship with Messiah and the continuing opportunities to support the mission.”

DR. MINH NGUYEN ’80 A HEART FOR GIVING In 1975 when widespread warfare broke out in Vietnam, Minh Nguyen was relocated to a refugee camp in Pennsylvania. Unable to speak English, he had no way to prove to U.S. schools that he had already completed most of his high school education. After learning English, Nguyen applied to and enrolled in Messiah College. Out of the 20 colleges he applied to, only Messiah responded. Today, he is a cardiologist at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He fondly remembers the professors and fellow students who helped him more than 40 years ago. “My professional career would not have been possible without Messiah College,” he said. “Messiah took a chance on me and gave me the break that I needed.” The College is grateful for Nguyen’s faithful support as a Messiah Partner every year. Such gifts are a vital part of our goal to keep a Christian education within reach of all students who wish to attend here. “Doctors need not only the sciences, but the humanities, especially with a Christian world view,” explained Nguyen. “It’s very important. For this, I am forever grateful.”

LOU AND DONNA RHEA WALTERS A FAITHFUL LEGACY We are always grateful when parents send one of their children to Messiah College. For Lou and Donna Rhea Walters, they ended up sending all four of their daughters—Vanessa ’03, Devon ’06, Leah ’08 and Melanie ’11. The three younger sisters even married Messiah alums—Adam Duryea ’06, Michael Ortiz ’07 and Justin Erb ’09, respectively. The Walterses say they are very grateful for the education their daughters received, both academically and spiritually. The images of the opening candlelight ceremony and the concluding Baccalaureate service remain vivid in their memories.

“We are very honored to work with Messiah,” said Lou Walters. “They have given our daughters a great education and, more importantly, a solid foundation for the rest of their lives and those of their growing families. We give to the College because God has blessed us, and we want others to receive this opportunity for a wonderful start to their lives as adults.” Messiah College thanks the Walters not only for their generous annual support, but also for including Messiah in their estate plans. Over the years, estate gifts have had a significant impact on the financial health of Messiah College, and we are deeply grateful to the Walters family. Who knows? Maybe their six grandchildren all will consider Messiah someday in the future, as well!
