INSIDE LINFIELD MAGAZINE We are Linfield. In times of great joy, in times of great sadness, we as a community come together. That was on display for all to see this fall. We had great things to celebrate when three alumni were honored for their dedication to teaching. An exciting and innovative service learning program opened new doors to students in our RN-BSN program. We rejoice in the ongoing connections between faculty and students that continue over the decades, and share one such story here. And we mourn the tragic loss of one of our own. The power of the Linfield family is on display every day, but never more so than this fall. We are #LinfieldStrong. – Mardi Mileham
