WEST MICHIGAN WELCOMES TRINITY ALUMNI AND FRIENDS

Alumni, family, and friends who prefer to watch sports instead of play are invited to join us at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on August 13 at 7 p.m. The Whitecaps will take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, and a fireworks show will take place after the game. Tickets are available for a group rate of $7 each.

ALUMNI PROFILE

ART JONGSMA, JR '63-CAREER LEADS TO ROADS LESS TRAVELED

Psychology has opened doors to Dr. Arthur Jongsma, Jr. '63 that few people enter. He often accompanies people on journeys to help them resolve pain, turmoil, and despair in their lives. "It is my privilege to meet people at crisis points and walk with them down paths that they don't normally share with others," he said. "People are willing to trust me with their private struggles, so it is most important to respect and listen to them. Then I can offer compassion and techniques to resolve some of their issues." Read more about Jongsma and other alumni on our Web site at http://tcc.trnty.edu/alumni/profiles/index.html.
