This event is open to members of the William Spoelhof Society.
On Wednesday, May 9, gather with us at the annual William Spoelhof Society Spring Dinner to celebrate all the ways you support Calvin College and Calvin students.
Keynote speaker: Shirley Hoogstra
President, Council for Christian Colleges & Universities
A visionary leader who is passionate about Christian higher education and the role it plays in the common good, Shirley Hoogstra became the seventh president of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities in September 2014. Having received a bachelor’s in education at Calvin College and a Juris Doctor, with honors, from the University of Connecticut School of Law, Hoogstra spent more than a decade practicing law before returning to the world of Christian higher education as Calvin’s vice president for student life in July 1999, a role she served in until she became president of the CCCU.
As CCCU president, Hoogstra continues her work highlighting the value and purpose of high quality, Christ-centered liberal arts education that shapes the heart, soul, and mind.
The evening will also feature greetings from President Le Roy and Student Senate President Andrew Oppong—along with inspirational music by the Choral Scholars who have received praise for their breathtaking intonation and stunning musicality.
The registration deadline is July 26.
