Please join us in extending warm congratulations to our CICW colleague Dale Cooper who has received Calvin's Faith and Learning Award. We give thanks to God for all the ways Dale has blessed and continues to bless the students and entire Calvin community through his faithful witness. Dale was selected by the Calvin Alumni Association Board at its February meetings as one of two honorees for 2017. Presented annually by the alumni association, this award recognizes Calvin's outstanding faculty and the criteria include teaching excellence, spiritual impact, care for the whole student and lasting influence. Calvin graduates nominate retired professors each year and the board makes an award decision. Joining Dale as 2017 honorees is former Calvin art professor Robin Jensen. Both will receive their awards at a special on-campus dinner on Thursday, May 18 during Commencement Week.

Autism Spectrum Disorder and Your Church
With one in 68 individuals being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, it is likely that your worshiping community already includes someone with ASD. If you are a pastor, worship leader, musician, church school teacher, or church volunteer, discover specific ways to identify, interact with, and worship with persons with ASD. Using six key areas of difference, this session from #wsymp17 took best practices in special education and applied them to a church setting. It left participants with a toolbox full of new ideas to try starting next week with both children and adults!
