Baccalaureate Speech 2019

Good evening everyone, my name is Matt Doty. When Dr. Crafton invited me to speak at this ceremony I was admittedly apprehensive at first. I didn’t know that I fully understood the prompt, nor did I know if I had anything to say.

I quickly realized that the issue wasn’t whether or not I would have something to say—I rarely run into that problem—but whether or not I could string together words with enough freshness and depth to strike a chord with a group of high school students. This task seemed far more difficult, and the thought of it rattled around in my head for a few days.

Heritage & Hope: Opening Hearts

Posted by Rebekah Peterson on May 1, 2017

 

Middle School English Teacher Phil Erickson welcomed almost 450 guests to the seventh annual Heritage & Hope Dinner.  Mr. Erickson explained that when he attended the first Heritage & Hope Dinner, and saw the students who were helped by this scholarship fund, he was struck to the depth of his heart how important these students were to Minnehaha.  He has supported the fund ever since and encouraged guests, with God's help, to be grateful and to be generous. And guests did just that by donating funds to provide deserving students an exceptional Christian education at Minnehaha through tuition assistance.
