The Newman Center is excited to welcome our new Student Life Coordinator August 1, 2014. Dave Witherow just completed a Theology degree from Benedictine College in Atchinson and will be joining the staff of the Newman Center. We congratulate him on his graduation from college; and all of us, parishioners and college students, are excited for you to begin your new life here with us!
"My name is David Witherow and I am going to be your student life coordinator at the Newman Center this coming Fall. I will be graduating from Benedictine College with a Major in Theology and a Minor in both Spanish and Psychology on May 17th, five days from now. I've spent three years at BC, transferring from a community college in my sophomore year after saying goodbye to my family back in Virginia. Being the fourth of eighth kids means goodbyes are a lot quicker by the time it's your turn to leave the nest. The fact that I ended up at BC at all was a grace, as I had little direction going into college. That said, I can say with confidence that these past three years have been the most transformative and memorable years of my life. I already have a growing nostalgia for the place. Now this fall, I get to join you at WSU. I want these next years to continue to transform who I am, and I want to experience that with you. I want to make our time at WSU memorable. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you, and I mean that. Till then, God Bless." -David Witherow
"P.S. I ask that you keep me in your prayers over the summer as I work through Totus Tuus in the KC- St. Joe area and prepare to join you at WSU this coming semester. I'll be praying for you all."
