SPRING SUMMIT 2003 - From the Mailbag

From the Mailbag

Memories of Ricks
I will never forget Ricks College. I attended Ricks College about 12 years ago. I really liked the way of life there. I have very fond memories.
     Life here in California is so different. I have two children now, and I would like for them to attend this fine school some day. There they can be safe and guided by such awesome faculty.
     I was a troubled teen from California. I met two missionaries who told me about that school which I had never heard about. I decided to go there and see if all the things I had heard were true. Everything was true. It made such a difference in my life that I can honestly say I was not only physically saved but also spiritually as well.
     For as long as I live I will never forget Ricks and the people that made such difference in my life. I just want to say thank you to everyone there.

Thoughts from a Sunbird
While I am not an alumna of Ricks College, I did spend about ten summers in your community and thoroughly enjoyed the campus … especially the wonderful library. Since I do make a modest contribution each year, I have been receiving the Summit Magazine for some time. I was particularly excited when this issue arrived today with the picture of the new Spori Building on the cover.
     Alas, I find the publication almost impossible to read because of the small print! …
     It certainly is a beautifully presented publication. I cannot argue with that. But I wonder just how [readable] it is for alumni? Granted they are not all 82 as I am.
     Thank you for listening!

The Impact of an Intern
Michelle [Petersen] excelled at learning what was required of her and I could not ask for a better employee. She will be a tremendous benefit to any organization. If we were to have a full-time position open up, I would offer it to Michelle in an instant. It is very clear after working with other students from around the U.S. that BYU–Idaho is an institution of learning and high values.
