We make every effort to ensure that information presented within this publication is accurate and timely. The following notes are corrections or clarifications for the fall/winter 2012 issue of Houghton.
In the second paragraph of the article “To Love, Equip and Empower” on page 19 featuring ’78 grad Mark Cerbone and his work with Peace of the City Ministries on Buffalo’s West Side, we would like to make a clarification to the text. Following the line: “We [Mark and Diann] felt this was direction from above, and it became increasingly clear that we were called to stay,” this text should be added: “We located an apartment on a tough block in the West Side and have lived in the neighborhood ever since, raising our children and in time buying a neglected house and bringing it back to life.”
In the feature obituary for Bert Hall ’43 on page 34, we neglected to mention two of Bert’s grandsons: Jonathan and Timothy Sander.
I was delighted to read the article about Harry Thomas, because I was a member of the Class of ’65 and remember very well Harry’s and Terry’s contributions to campus life.

First of all, the cover was very impressive. Second, I read it cover to cover the first day after I received it in the mail. All of the articles were fascinating, but I have to admit the first article really resonated with me, because my life seems so “ordinary,” especially when compared to the rest of the featured alumni. Those others were doing such energetic, outstanding things! Third, I ALWAYS read the “Alumni News,” even though most of the notes seem to be from much later classes than mine.

The magazine in this and recent issues has come across as more advancement-focused, appearing to try to justify Houghton, rather than to share more about what’s going on on campus. As an alumnus, I’m thoroughly sold on the value of a Houghton education and continue to be proud of my Highlander Heritage! I would love to see more alumni photos and news in coming issues.

Excellent issue! Loved knowing that Pastor Harry Thomas and his wife are Houghton graduates. We have been going to the Creation Festival in Mt. Union, Pennsylvania, for years – and we now know that our son, Robert (class of 2013), and Pastor Harry have something in common! Houghton has some amazing alumni, and it is great to find out about the work that God is doing through those alumni (and current students).

Facebook comment in response to Brian Reitnour’s article, “Life’s Persistent Questions:”
I changed my degree about three times and ended up with a master’s in my original area of interest. I was blessed at Houghton to have an education that equipped me in every area. Every professor invested in me, and I learned about subject areas through God’s lens. God uses whatever you study for His glory, so you can’t really go wrong!
