Professor Engels Eventful Christmas Break

Posted at 11:24 am under Uncategorized

Professor Engels, a professor at Morningside for 10 years, and his family are going to be spending Christmas break a little different this year. He and is family, wife Allison and two sons Jack and Nick, are going to be going on a mission trip to Guatemala.

They will be spending 3 weeks visiting a few cities while helping build homes for those in need. Engels will be utilizing his teaching skills by trying to educate the kids in the area and get them involved in the work as well.

Engels says, “Even though we are going on this trip, I still plan on giving the kids some gifts when we return home to Chicago. I am so proud of them for being so enthusiastic about going.”

Engels will return home with just three days until classes start up so he will have plenty of stories for his students come second semester.

    Engels got a bit more creative than I expected. The idea here was to update his hometown newspaper about what he has done as a student at Morningside. That way you promote M’side, and inform his family and friends. You could still do that for an adult with children (at least my hometown paper would), but you would stil include some info that ties him to the community.
