2018 GRADUATES KHRISTIAN TROTTER FAVORITE NSA MEMORY: Never lost a rugby game as a class. PLANS AFTER GRADUATION: Sales position in agribusiness and future graduate studies in soil science/ecology. MOST IMPORTANT TAKEAWAY: A strong, biblical community is never “achieved”—it must be actively and continually sought after, worked for, and pursued. WHITNEY TWOGOOD FAVORITE NSA MEMORY: The 2017 Nevada desert-dessert herpetology trip. PLANS AFTER GRADUATION: To grow in knowledge, to advocate for those things which deserve advocation, and to enjoy Sundays more thoroughly than ever before. MOST IMPORTANT TAKEAWAY: “But living a just and holy life requires one to be capable of an objective and impartial evaluation of things: to love things, that is to say, in the right order, so that you do not love what is not to be loved, or fail to love what is to be loved, or have a greater love for what should be loved less, or an equal love for things that should be loved less or more, or a lesser or greater love for things that should be loved equally.” ISAAC WAITMAN FAVORITE NSA MEMORY: Getting married. But as far as school- related memories go, winning the rugby championship freshman year (without giving up a single try) was pretty cool. PLANS AFTER GRADUATION: Business MOST IMPORTANT TAKEAWAY: Being a Christian may not make you more knowledgeable about a subject, but it should affect the way you approach it.
