Co-directed by Dr. Clark Roush and Tisa Lawrence, featuring the choreography of students Soren Tobey and Gabrielle Siebenaler, this show brought the house down both nights.

Starting in summer 2017, York College will offer a five-week study abroad experience in Vienna, Austria.
The study abroad experience will combine faith and learning in an international context with a small community of York College students and staff. Students in this program will have the opportunity to travel Europe, enroll in specially designed courses, and participate in unique spiritual growth activities. Since it seeks to integrate faith and learning, the program will be created and implemented in collaboration with the Office of the Provost and Spiritual Development office. Dr. Shane Mountjoy, provost, Dr. Sam Garner, director of spiritual development, and Dr. Erin DeHart, associate professor of education, will lead the program in 2017.

Walter and Cindy's sons Cory and Caleb graduated from YC in 2011 and 2013. Their daughter, Caris, will graduate this May.
