Covenant Groups' New "Shepherd"
I am delighted to share with the Seminary community that the Rev. Dr. Michelle Holley Carlson, already well-known on campus as our Director of Lifelong Learning, has agreed to succeed Pr. Ginny Price in serving as Covenant Groups liaison and support person for the remainder of the academic year. We anticipate this role continuing to be linked with the Admissions Office when a new director is called to serve. Thanks, Dr. Carlson!
