In this issue, we explore the study of religion and its impact on how students and alumni live their lives. We salute our baseball national champions and our 661 graduates who heard an inspiring commencement address by Theresa (Stichick) Betancourt ’91. We offer examples of dedicated teachers, who seek to encourage and inspire students and to explore new ideas. The Linfield experience continues to thrive – on the athletic field, in the classroom, in the theatre and concert hall, and through alumni connections. – Mardi Mileham Summer 2013 l i n f i e l d m a g a z i n e - 3
