May 18, 2013. A historic graduation day at Tabor College. A record number of students, 194 in total, received their degrees. The audience watched and cheered as they walked across the stage and I handed them the symbol of their degree. Doc Kyle was vintage Doc as he addressed the graduates. The weather was what we had prayed for as we gathered in Joel H. Wiens Stadium. But the real story we did not see. What if there would have been a large screen that played the stories of transformation while the graduates walked across the stage? What if on the screen we would have seen the life change that each student has experienced while at Tabor? That is the real story. What if we had seen the lives of the graduates as God saw them, displayed on a large screen? We saw the robes, tassels, and honor cords. We cheered and congratulated them on their accomplishments. But, God saw the heart. Hearts that were changed. Lives which have been transformed. The stories of transformation are impressive. I knew some of them, but I can only imagine the others. Many have made significant spiritual decisions. Some gave their lives to Christ for the first time. Others saw the importance of following Christ and renewed their relationship with him. Many transitioned from the faith borrowed from their parents to the faith that is now their own. Some discovered faith. Some have made decisions to go into vocational ministry. Others have realized their chosen vocation is
their ministry. Some have decided to live a life of service. Transformation is a beautiful thing. Yes, there are some for whom the seeds have only been planted. For others it may take more of life to make that decision to follow Christ. And there are even others who walked across the stage at commencement who have decided that to be a Christfollower in life is not for them. Testimonies of former graduates bear this possibility out. Transformation is God’s work. We simply provide the environment where it can happen. We are partners with Him in fulfilling His activity in the world. Our mission of preparing people for a life of learning, work, and service for Christ and His kingdom is in partnership with God’s mission in the world. I am more convinced than ever that each student is called by God to come to Tabor. They all come for a variety of reasons but underneath their answers to the question, ‘Why did you come to Tabor?’ is that God has arranged it in such a way that He has placed them, every one of them, into our stewardship. A stewardship of transformation. What we saw on graduation day at Tabor College was the fruit of our service. We saw the mission we are giving our lives to being accomplished. We saw God’s work and we celebrated it. The Tabor Experience is something special. Our decidedly Christian approach to higher education is a worthy calling. We are participating with God in His mission in the world.

Two Tabor College teaching icons to retire Just as the Lohrenz building serves as an icon for the Tabor College campus, two significant individuals who have touched and shaped the lives of hundreds of students through the years have announced that they will be retiring at the end of the school term. Dr. Richard Kyle, professor of history and religion, and Judy Harder, associate professor of communication, will not be in the classroom when the 2013-14 school year convenes. For the past 41 years Dr. Richard Kyle, better known to most as “Doc Kyle” has been a welcome presence on the Tabor College campus. His influence has been felt in the classroom on the football field – serving
Dr. Kyle will long be remembered for his vast knowledge and ability to relate to students. He will lead another Europe trip in 2014.
Just as the Lohrenz building serves as an icon for the Tabor College campus, two significant individuals who have touched and shaped the lives of hundreds of students through the years have announced that they will be retiring at the end of the school term. as a coach during the mid-70s - and as an international guide. During his career he has led over 655 students on 28 international trips, 26 of those to Europe. Dr. Kyle is very committed to his students and enjoys seeing growth in them both spiritually and academically, especially on international trips. “I have gotten the most satisfaction from taking Tabor students abroad,” said Dr. Kyle. “I enjoy being able to introduce them to different countries, cultures and disciplines.” He will be leading another trip to Europe in January of 2014. He is a humble scholar and has been the recipient of many honors, including twice being named a Fulbright scholar. Out of respect for him, a lecture series on the Tabor College campus was named in his honor. Annually, a faculty member is selected to present their research at the Dr. Richard G. Kyle Faculty Lecture Series. He has published 11 books and has been featured in more than 170 publications. He looks forward to completing another book this August about the Scottish Reformation. “I will miss the students and faculty the most when I leave Tabor,” said Dr. Kyle. “I’ll make sure to come back to campus every now and then for activities and lunch in the cafeteria.” Another familiar face that will be absent from the classroom will be that of Judy Harder, having served Tabor College since 1987. She is leaving her post after 26 years of praise-worthy teaching and directing. She has had the honor of directing more than 70 mainstage campus productions at Tabor College as well as teaching public speaking and theater courses. “It takes a village to put on Homecoming musicals,” Harder said. “The efforts of talented production staff and musicians have been outstanding. To say that the Tabor community goes the extra mile in support of our productions is an understatement.”
Multiple productions have taken place in the 90-seat theater in the basement of the H.W. Lohrenz Building. “I will especially miss participating with casts and crews in this life-learning lab,” Harder said. “I treasure the opportunities I’ve had to collaborate with thoughtful, creative and sometimes just a little crazy, learning partners in this space.” Harder will direct the 2013 fall musical, Godspell. It will be her 26th production, having served Tabor since 1987. Most recently, she directed The Crucible which is very likely her last production in the small theater. At the conclusion of the show’s run, Harder found herself flooded with memories. “I had the privilege of working with amazing people over the years,” Harder said. With the retirement of these two outstanding educators, the campus will be left with a significant void. Although both intend to stay in the community and continue being involved with students to some degree, it is clear that their presence will be missed by many. Story by Andrea Pankratz and Beth Riffel
Judy Harder dedicated more than two decades of her professional life to directing high-quality theater productions on the Tabor College campus. Her final production will be Godspell, the Homecoming 2013 production.
Dr. Richard Kyle delivers keynote address at Commencement
Members of the Tabor College band provided a pre-commencement concert. They also played the traditional "Pomp and Circumstance" march and the recessional for the ceremony.
Tabor College's 103rd graduating class, the largest in its history, marched through Joel H. Wiens Stadium on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at commencement. In all, 127 Bachelors of Arts, 11 Master of Business Administration, 13 Bachelor of Science, 42 Bachelor of Science in Nursing and 1 Associate of Arts degrees were presented. The band, under the direction of Mr. Daniel Baldwin, opened the event with a concert and the traditional Pomp and Circumstance processional. Representing the school of Adult and Graduate studies, Anna Reid provided the invocation. Michael Klaassen was the speaker representing the Tabor College Hillsboro class, while Leilani Schenkel spoke on behalf of the class from Tabor College Wichita. Tynan Honn, president of the senior class, gave the graduating class response. President Dr. Jules Glanzer presented the Professor Fran Jabara Leadership Award. It was given to Becky Steketee and Michael Klaassen, both of Hillsboro. They each received a $1,000 stipend and a plaque in honor of their leadership skills demonstrated not only during their time as Tabor College students, but for their potential leadership capabilities. The commencement address was given by Dr. Richard Kyle, long time history professor who is retiring at the close of the school year. His address was titled “It’s the beginning, not the end.” Kyle, a professor of History and Religion at Tabor College, is retiring after teaching for 41 years. A prolific author and scholar, he is a favorite with students. He shared, in typical Dr. Kyle style, wit and wisdom for the graduating class. “In a few minutes you will be college graduates and whether you realize it or not you will have had a leg up on such famous college dropouts as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Ellison. You will have an advantage over many people in the work force, so take advantage of it. Yes, the tassel will be worth the hassle,” Kyle advised. “Tabor College’s mission is to prepare people for a life of learning, work and service for Christ and His

kingdom. Commence means to begin, not to end. Thus this commencement marks the beginning of many aspects of your life. And given Tabor’s mission statement I want to point out three areas that hopefully you have been introduced to during your years at Tabor College. It is my hope and prayer that you will build on this foundation. There are many aspects of your years at Tabor College and I could have selected other areas to mention. A short list would include athletics, social events, and cultural activities such as music and drama. But that would take too long. So I have selected three points. Keep on Learning. Keep Growing Spiritually and Keep Thinking Globally.” He closed with the words of Arie Pencovici: ‘Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference.’ The graduating class was presented their diplomas by Dr. Jules Glanzer and the Tabor College Alumni Association, represented by Dr. Allen Hiebert, member of the class of 1963, and Marlene Fast, Director of Alumni and Parent Relations, handed each graduate a Bible as they exited the stage.
Dr. Jules Glanzer, Tabor College President, offers words of congratulations and encouragement to the graduates as they have completed their work at Tabor College and move into their chosen career fields or pursue additional educational opportunities.
Graduates were all smiles as they paraded into Joel H. Wiens stadium for the 2013 Commencement exercises. The class was the largest group of graduates in school history with 194 degrees presented.
Leilani Schenkel representing Tabor College Wichita provided the AGS graduate address.
Tabor College Hillsboro class response was given by Michael Klaassen, Student Body President. He reflected on the time he spent on campus, offering hope for success as his fellow graduates begin a new chapter in their lives. Rebecca Steketee and Michael Klaassen were revealed as the 2013 Jabara Leadership Award recipients. The honor includes a $1,000 cash stipend.

Dreaming in Color
The tradition continued as the Tabor family gathered for the annual Homecoming celebration, “Dreaming in Color” held Oct. 4-7, 2012. There were plenty of opportunities to enjoy fellowship and food. Some of the traditional Homecoming activities featured Music Fest, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and many sporting events. An annual favorite, the Dutch Lunch featured the usual delicious German buffet. “'Joseph’ was enthusiastically received by Tabor’s Homecoming audiences” said Judy Harder, professor of communications and theater. “It was a wonderful show, and our cast did a fantastic job with the performances, all of which were sold out.” The Tabor College football team celebrated Homecoming weekend by setting a new, single-game record and earning a decisive victory over a nationally ranked team. The Bluejays rushed for over 500 yards Saturday afternoon on their way to a 56-31 victory over the No. 20th ranked Coyotes of Kansas Wesleyan University. Tabor finished the game setting a single game rushing record with 510 yards on the ground, breaking the previous mark they set just two weeks ago of 444 yards against Haskell Indian Nations University. For the game Tabor finished with 547 yards of total offense. During halftime, the annual announcement of Homecoming host and hostess was made. The 2012 winners are Tanner Giffin and Tynan Honn. The candidates were nominated by the senior class and selected by the student body. Honn, a native of Hutchinson, Kan., is majoring in biology with a minor in coaching. She is a member of the basketball and track and field teams, a member of
the science club and leads a small group Bible study. She is a resident assistant and the senior class president. Giffin, from Sedgwick, Kan., is a member of the football and baseball teams and involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Other candidates included David Loewen, Destinee Cogburn, Michael Klaassen, Kristen Pitschman, Ishmael Morris and Cassie Kroeker.
During Homecoming weekend, Dr. Brad Vogel, choral director, shared a story with the crowd gathered for the Musicfest performance.
Tanner Giffin and Tynan Honn were announced as the 2012 Tabor College Homecoming Host and Hostess at a halftime ceremony during the Tabor College vs. Kansas Wesleyan football game.

Wiest and Warkentin presented Tabor College Alumni Awards
Dr. Jules Glanzer, right, presented the Alumni Merit award to Dr. Raymond Wiest.
A tradition of honoring alumni who have carried the Tabor message and mission into their chosen career fields and have made a difference in their professional lives, continued in 2012 as two individuals were honored at the Tabor College Homecoming Festival Dinner. President Jules Glanzer bestowed the Alumni Merit Award to Dr. Raymond Wiest, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Jesse Warkentin, Wichita, Kan. was presented the 2012 Alumni Medallion Award. Wiest earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Tabor College in 1962. He went on to the University of Oregon, Eugene where he received a Masters of Arts in 1965 and a Ph.D. in 1970 both in the field of anthropology. He and his wife Shirley have been married for 51 years and the couple enjoys three children and six grandchildren. Dr. Wiest took his first job at the University of Manitoba in 1968 and has remained there throughout his professional teaching career. He was appointed assistant professor in 1970 and promoted
to associate professor in 1974 and professor in 1993. He served as head of the anthropology department from 1988-98. After officially retiring in 2006, he was named professor emeritus. Professor Wiest conducted extended and varied research on various subjects, writing three books and being published in 26 professional journals. Some of his most passionate research focused on migration and household organization in Mexico, resettlement in Bangladesh, disaster mitigation in Brazil, and on the impact of new textile technologies in Winnipeg. Warkentin graduated from Tabor College in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with an emphasis in piano and a minor in voice. He has remained in the Wichita area working as a pianist, conductor, composer, singer, and musical director. He has served as the accompanist for the choirs at Wichita High School East and the assistant conductor and pianist at the nationally-known Music Theatre of Wichita, where he has been employed for eight consecutive seasons. Warkentin has also spent time with Music Theatre for Young People, instructing and encouraging the younger generation of aspiring actors. Most recently he begins his second year as musical director for the new Crown Uptown Dinner Theatre. On February 10, 2013 Warkentin made his debut with the Newton Mid-Kansas Symphony as piano soloist, performing Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the orchestra. “We are so blessed to be able to call these outstanding individuals Tabor alumni,” Jules Glanzer said in presenting the awards. “They are truly taking the Tabor College mission and making a difference in the world.

One of Tabor College’s core values could not be displayed any better than by what is taking place on campus this year. Students are actively working on a program that allows deserving students the access to an emergency fund. The program is called “Tabor Proud” and is being organized by the Student Senate. “We have been selling ‘Tabor Proud’ t-shirts all year at sporting events and through the JayShop (campus bookstore),” said Michael Klaassen, senior, (Hillsboro), most recent Student Body President. “The money goes into an emergency fund to help students when they are in a crisis.” According to Klaassen, a crisis entails a tragedy that might call a student unexpectedly away from campus. During these difficult times, finances should be the least of their worries. The funds might help with the purchase of plane tickets, medical bills or gas. With much thought and effort, the program began to fall into place. Student Senate started organizing the Tabor Proud program at the beginning of this school year. After the death of a Tabor student, everything fell into place and the program started to take off. “All of this really happened at a unique time,” said Klaassen. T-shirts sales began the week of Homecoming and nearly 250 shirts were sold during that time. Already students have taken advantage of this meaningful program. “There have been a couple students who have contacted (Student Senate) because they were in need,” said Stacey Warkentin, junior, Wichita, Kan., who is a member of Student Senate. “We are so glad that students are already benefitting from it. We hope students remember "Tabor Proud" when they are going through tough times.” “Tabor Proud” is designed to be an annual program so t-shirts will always be available. Each year there will be a new t-shirt design and the money earned will roll-over to the upcoming year. The community and alumni are strongly encouraged to participate in this program by coming alongside current Tabor students.
Students, faculty and staff show their Tabor pride by purchasing shirts to support students in crisis.
“What we ultimately want "Tabor Proud" to do is help students out in their time of need and minister to them that their peers, faculty, and the community do care about them,” said Warkentin. “Matthew 25:40 says, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Tabor College wants this to be a program of humility, realizing that it is not about us, but about helping a fellow student. To be able to help students out when they are going through emergencies and to show Christ’s love is a great thing,” said Warkentin. Story by Andrea Pankratz
Annual tours find groups sharing God’s love through music
The Tabor College tradition of touring each spring with musical ensembles continued again in 2013. This spring three groups took to the road, sharing their gift of music and the message of God’s love to alumni and friends. The Concert Choir headed west, presenting concerts in Colorado and California, March 14-24. The choir, under the direction of Dr. Brad Vogel, professor of choral music, performed nine concerts under the theme “The Radiance of His Glory,” based on Hebrews 1:3. “So many texts speak of the glory of God and the glory of Christ, and Hebrews 1:3 proclaims that Christ is ‘the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being’,” said Vogel. “I wanted to focus on how we as believers reflect the Lord’s glory and so looked for texts that would speak of our lives in and for Christ.” Freshman Olivia Kliewer, Hillsboro, noted that the experience was important to her. “Personally, I thought that the choir tour was amazing. We became closer as a group and when you do that, you are better able to share music with others,” she said. “The thing that really impacts me is being able to share music with different people and making a connection with them. Another highlight is staying with host families and hearing their stories.” The choir sang a wide variety of pieces from hymn arrangements to contemporary versions of ancient texts. The concerts also included Vogel’s own arrangement of the hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy.” Students Megan Wiebe and Zach Neumann served as the accompanists for the tour. Rachel Goering on flute and a string quartet of Ryan Loewen and Cheyenne Derksen on violin, Jessica Coldwell on viola and Natalie Wiens on cello were also featured during the tour. Tabor College’s Concerto Bella Voce women’s choir, which debuted this year under the direction of Janie Brokenicky, launched its inaugural tour, March 18-24, visiting locations in Wichita, Dallas, Texas and several stops in Oklahoma. Brokenicky was hired this past fall as assistant professor of choral music.
Concerto Bella Voce, the Tabor College women’s choir, made its debut this past year under the direction of Janie Brokenicky.
The concert series, entitled “His Guiding Hand,” was based on the text of the book of Ruth. A special number, “The Song of Ruth” by David Childs was performed. Concerto Bella Voce was accompanied on piano by Director of the Music Preparatory School Tiffiney Harms. Sally Epp was featured on violin as well as in a piano duet with Cora Ruhl. Rounding out the traveling groups was the tour of Western Kansas by the Symphonic Band and Chamber Strings. The groups appeared at seven locations in western Kansas including Hesston College, North Oak Community Church in Hays, Emmanuel Mennonite Church in Meade, the Presbyterian Church of Garden City, Garden City High School and Newton High School. Under the direction of Daniel Baldwin, director of bands and orchestra, the theme for this year’s tour was “Out of the Darkness and Into the Light,” based on 1 John 1:5. “We have all experienced dark times in our lives,” said Baldwin. “The solution to combat darkness is light. The way we come to that light is through a relationship with God.”

The Tabor College Presidential Leadership Scholarship program is now into its second year and continues to grow in the numbers of scholars and fellows on campus – as well as enriching student leadership opportunities and experiences. During the immersive four-year program, Presidential Leadership Scholars experience mentoring by Tabor College President Jules Glanzer, have the opportunity to travel with him to professional seminars, network with business, industry and political leaders and serve the Tabor College student population while pursuing academic achievements in the classroom. This past year, current scholars and fellows had several opportunities to travel with President Glanzer, meet with exceptional leaders in government and business and learn skills that will serve them well in the future. Excursions included visiting presidential libraries, including the Truman and Eisenhower facilities and the Daley Plaza where President Kennedy was shot. They also participated in Washburn University's Leadership Challenge Competition in Topeka. They had personal visits with Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Pastor Walt Kallestad, and author Phillip Yancey. In addition to these events, they went on a reflection retreat. While on their Texas tour, the group had the opportunity to visit with Dwight Hodel, Scott Pendrey, Jack, Janet, and Nick Trompert, and to participate in the Cox School of Business Entrepreneurial Leadership Seminar on the campus of SMU. Tabor alum Paula Strasser is the Director of the program. The visit with Dwight Hodel was especially meaningful. Mr. Hodel has provided generous support to the PLS program, recognizing the importance of leadership in business and communities. He noted that he had been away from Tabor and Hillsboro for quite some time, but yet the community still felt like “home.” Hodel presented Tabor College with a gift of $100,000 for scholarships for the Presidential Leadership Scholars and to assist with programming costs. Marissa Hiett, one of the scholars, has gained much from her experience. “One of my favorite things about the program is the people connections and networking that takes place. Leadership is influence, and we have a great opportunity to experience this influence from other leaders as well as learn more about ourselves so we can influence and impact the people around us,” she said. Hiett is a junior from Fairview, Okla. and is pursuing a dual degree in Biblical and Religious Studies and International Studies with a minor in Mission.
Tristen Long, Osborne, Kan., noted a similar connection to the program as a scholar. “The most rewarding thing I have experienced in PLS is the lifelong connections I am making with, not only friends but with adults as well,” he said. “This program has introduced me to amazing people and has given me opportunities and experiences that I wouldn't have had in any other college.” The selection for the 2013 Presidential Leadership Scholarship was held Nov. 4-5, 2012. Justin Goble,
Salina, Kan, Tena Loewen, Hillsboro, Kan., Maci Root, Minneapolis, Kan. and Logan Whitney, Concordia, Kan. will each will receive a renewable scholarship. President Glanzer noted that these are students of exceptional caliber. “We are excited that these student leaders will be spending the next four years on our Tabor campus,” he said. “These are young people with integrity, heart and a passion to serve. It will be a pleasure to welcome them to our community, interact with them and watch them grow and develop into outstanding leaders.”
Leadership program attracts new donor Although he didn’t graduate from Tabor College, only attending classes for two years before transferring to nearby Emporia State University, Dwight Hodel knows that his time on campus was significant. “I come from a long line of Mennonites,” Hodel said during a phone interview. "My grandfather and grandmother on both sides of the family were immigrants to this country. Growing up in Hillsboro and graduating high school, there are many fond memories surrounding the Tabor College campus, including playing on the big steps and the big pots of the administration building as a child. Other memories include playing tennis on the courts as well was taking three semester of PE in the 'old barn.'” At the time, Tabor didn’t offer the course of study he wished to complete which resulted in the transfer. But the Tabor influence on Hodel was more than the places or the buildings where classes were held. It was the people too. The interaction of former presidents of the school with him on a personal level, and the caring and compassion shown to himself and wife Adrienne when, in August of 1962, Clarence Hiebert assisted in the memorial service for his infant son. Yes, the connections to Tabor College run deep for Dwight Hodel. After college he pursued a business and now owns an enterprise in the water treatment industry. Much of his work focuses on providing safe and clean drinking water for small towns across America - places not unlike Hillsboro, which he still considers home, although he hasn’t lived in the community since 1956. Through the years it became clear to him that leadership is a driving factor in business and community
success. “Essentially, I have a tremendous concern about where our country is going,” Hodel explained. “Leadership is what takes a country in a certain direction – whether it is positive or negative.” After hearing about the newly created Presidential Leadership Scholar program, he was excited about the potential, and asked President Glanzer how he might help further the program. Hodel graciously and generously provided a gift of $100,000 to help support the scholarship and supporting activities of the Presidential Leadership Scholarship program. He is looking forward to seeing the program grow and flourish and the next generation of Christian leaders emerge from this unique and dynamic leadership development program.
PLS Scholars express their appreciation to Dwight Hodel for his support of the program during a visit to his place of business in Texas.

Tabor finishes the year with a KCAC record of 11-7 and an overall record of 18-25. Junior outfielder Sarah Massey, Cedar Vale, Kan., took home top honors for the Bluejays as she was named First Team All-Conference. Taking home Second Team All-Conference honors were seniors Cortnie Killen, Derby, Kan., Karen Harris, Paradise, Texas and junior Katie Henning, Olathe, Kan. Junior Kyleen Condon, Mulvane, Kan., and freshman Chelsea Nutt, Lake Havasu City, Ariz. were honored as they were named Honorable Mention All-KCAC. After an 0-6 start to begin KCAC play, the Bluejays won 11 of the next 12 conference games to shoot up
in the standings to finish fourth heading into the conference tournament. In the double-elimination tournament Tabor, the No. 4 seed, fell to the No. 5 Ottawa University Braves by the score of 9-3. Tabor would rebound to defeat McPherson College for the third time this year by the score of 4-3 to advance in the losers' half of the bracket. The season would come to end in their next game as they were eliminated from the tournament by Kansas Wesleyan University by the score of 17-3.
Hall of Fame Inductees fted at banquet Former Bluejays greats Carmen (Nelson) Richert and Tyson Ratzlaff were inducted into the Tabor College Athletics Hall of Fame at the annual Tabor College Hall of Fame Banquet held Sunday, May 12 on the campus of Tabor College. “The highlight of the evening was the induction of the Hall of Fame Members,” Rusty Allen, Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics said. “Carmen and Tyson had a great message to share. Tabor clearly helped prepare them to serve God in their chosen endeavors. It is always inspiring to be reminded of how the mission of preparing people for a life of learning, work and service for Christ and His Kingdom has such a significant impact.” Carmen (Richert) Nelson came from Overland Park, Kansas, to begin her freshman year at Tabor College in the fall of 1991. She graduated in the spring of 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health and Recreation. Dr. Karol Hunt was Carmen’s cross country coach two of the four years she competed for Tabor College and wanted to share this: “Carmen’s dedication and work ethic set the bar for the cross country team’s workouts and competitions. She was a positive example for her teammates and her leadership proved vital for her qualifying and running at nationals.” After graduation, Carmen worked with children in a variety of settings. She was a nanny and worked at a few daycare centers and preschools in Kansas City; Washington, D.C.; and Sioux Falls, S.D. Carmen started a children’s exercise program that she would take to home daycare centers and preschools called F.I.T. (Fun Interactive Teaching) for Kids. Carmen did this for a few years before she and her husband had their first child and then she was blessed by being a stay-athome mom, which she still is. Carmen is married to Ryan Nelson who is also a Tabor College graduate. They have two sons; Parker who is twelve years old and Mitchell who is nine. The family currently lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and attends the Central Baptist Church. Carmen is on the church worship team and helps teach the Wednesday night middle school youth group. Tyson Ratzlaff graduated from Hillsboro High School and began his freshman year at Tabor College

in the fall of 2000. He graduated in the spring of 2004 with a major in Psychology. Tim McCarty was Tyson’s football coach all four years at Tabor College. He had this to say about Tyson: “Number one, Tyson was a true pleasure to coach. Number two, he was a great player. Everyone knew the ball was going to him. They did all they could to stop it, but he still made the catch. The honor was all mine to be able to coach him.” After graduation, Tyson traveled to East Central University, in Ada, Oklahoma, and worked as a graduate assistant football coach while earning his master's degree in Counseling. Tyson then received his L.P.C. (Licensed Professional Counselor). In 2012 he opened an out-patient behavioral health facility called “Refuge Behavioral Health” in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Tyson married Lindsay Landrith in 2006. They have a son named Parks, who is five years old, and a daughter named Kate, who is three. Tyson and his family attend the Calvary Baptist Church in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.

Bergen donates stock to endow basketball scholarship Gifts that honor one’s experience at Tabor or those who impacted individuals when they were students are often special. This spring, one such gift will honor Del Reimer and the time he spent coaching and leading young men on the basketball court. In March, Dr. Jules Glanzer, announced the gift of PepsiCo stock valued at $1 million. Floyd E. Bergen, a 1962 Chemistry graduate who now lives in Norman, Okla. made the endowment donation in honor of Del Reimer. “I have thought for years how to honor the man who taught me so much while at Tabor, Dr. Del Reimer. It is my privilege to endow a scholarship in his honor as my coach and mentor,” Bergen noted. “That time is now.” Glanzer explained the details of the donation. “The gift honoring Del will establish a scholarship that will be directed toward an individual who will be an impact player for the men’s varsity basketball team.” Glanzer explained. “The value of the stock is

in excess of $1 million. We will continue to hold the stock and use the dividends to fund the scholarship.” In making the gift, Bergen noted that Reimer, who is also a Tabor alumnus, was a significant influence on his life as a young man. He was pleased to be able to honor his memory with a scholarship that will continue to bless others that come to Tabor as student athletes. Dr. Reimer, served as the coach for the Tabor men’s basketball team from 1957 until 1970 and worked at the college in various roles, including Athletic Director and the coach for several athletic teams. In all, he provided thirty years of service to the college. “I feel both humbled and honored by this designated gift in my honor. The years of 1957-61 our team practiced in the old gym, The Barn, and it was not even a dream that a member of this team would choose to present Tabor with this generous gift,” Reimer noted.
Dr. Del Reimer had a significant impact on Floyd Bergen during his time as a student. The gift made by Bergen is to honor Reimer as a friend and a coach.
