We praise God that Carol McGinnis is recovering well after her surgery on Friday. It was great to see her at church last night. Pray that she continues to gain her health.
Congratulations to Christina Valery, who was named to the Commandant's List during her Advanced Leadership Course at Fort Lee in Virginia. Christina ranked 7th out of 36 noncommissioned officers. While at Fort Lee, she also served on the Honor Guard team, raising and taking down the flag. Christina has now returned to Columbus, and we are so glad to have her back with us! (Christina is shown below receiving her award, and with her mother.)
