Dr. Bergsma, One of Trinity’s First Professors, Visits Campus

Apr 19, 2018

Trinity was honored to welcome Dr. Derke Bergsma, one of its first professors, back to campus for Chapel last week. In a wide-ranging interview with Trinity President Kurt Dykstra, Bergsma recalled teaching Latin 201, the very first class at Trinity,  hours after the old Navajo Hills Golf Course ceased operations. Bergsma also shared memories of Trinity founder Dr. George DeJong, who passed away on April 8 at age 100 and gave a reading from his newest book, “Monday Through Friday in the Word.”
