130 Stories of North Park

“My first year as faculty, John Hjelm asked me if I would help chaperone his cross-country ski trip course at Covenant Point. Another faculty member had to have surgery and couldn’t go, but I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea. I would not have called myself a cross-country skier. However, seeing John on that trip, how much energy he got from teaching in that environment, really made an impression. John’s love for students and Covenant Point really shone through. He was so joyful to get to share this place that was important to him with students who became so important to him.”

— Alyssa Anderson, Assistant Professor of Athletic Training and Clinical Education Coordinator, C’11
