a question to the graduates: what is your brand?
is who and what you are," said Jongsma, director of Psychological Consultants

humility, and kindness. God branded you long ago. Will you touch lives
with your new brand as Christian college graduates?"

official entry into the world as alumni of Trinity Christian College. Of
that total, 22 graduated from the adult studies program.

the invocation. Graduating student association president Keith Dykstra
