Nearly half of the original class of 20 attended, traveling from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan. They were joined by former nursing faculty members Lois Roelofs and Betty Klaassens. The group had gathered on its own for a 10-year reunion but enjoyed the chance to return to campus and to see the newly expanded Cynthia Sander Nursing Lab.

“It’s hard to believe that it has been 20 years since we graduated from Trinity’s nursing program ready to go out and make a difference in the world,” said Amy Eggebeen Nagelkirk. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this milestone than meeting up again at Trinity with my classmates and former professors.”
