NEWS & PRESS RELEASES
On Friday, October 27, Baptist Bible College & Seminary hosted its annual Grandparents Day event. Grandparents from all over the country gathered in Clarks Summit, PA, to show their support for their grandchildren while the students showed their gratitude for their involvement.
This year's Grandparents Day included a number of events intended to bestow honor and respect to grandparents. During the college chapel program, gift baskets were given to the oldest College or Seminary graduate in attendance, the grandparent who traveled the farthest, and the grandparent with the most grandchildren enrolled at BBC&S. Grandparents were invited to attend classes with students, visit dorms, and have their picture taken with their grandchildren. The school's Wind Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and Concert Chorale presented an afternoon concert specially planned for the event. For those grandparents who were around later in the evening, the BBC drama department presented Little Women the Broadway Musical.
While many of the grandparents visiting took part in these events, what they seemed to enjoy most was spending time with their grandkids. Bob and Arlene Niedzieski brought cookies and presents from York, PA to their grandson Wes Uffelman. "Wes is very special to us, and we always want him to know that we support him."
Charles and Pearl Worosher traveled all the way from Huron, OH, to see their grandsons, Matthew and Micah Dodd. "I was in a hospital for most of two years, so we didn't get a chance to come," said Charles Worosher. He and his wife were particularly glad to have the opportunity to visit with President Jim Jeffery, who is the former pastor of their church in Sandusky, OH. Matthew was also thankful for Grandparents Day. "I'm especially glad to see my grandparents here. It has been really encouraging to me."
