Remembering James S. Miller

e-mail this to a friend E-mail this to a friend

After the tragic death of James Miller, professor of biology, on Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011, the GC community mourns the loss of a valued professor and friend, and has come together in prayer, song and remembrance during convocation, a prayer vigil and memorial to support one another in this difficult time.

On Monday, Nov. 7, the GC community gathered during convocation to “Remember with Love” the contributions of biology professor James S. Miller to Goshen College over the course of his 31 year tenure. The time included storytelling by colleagues and students and a slide show developed by Jim’s children accompanied by a recording of the GC orchestra tribute to Jim at their Oct. 22 concert. Jim’s wife Linda spoke on “Things Jim Would Have Said If He Had Known He Would Die Today.” There was a reception in the Fellowship Hall afterward.

Photographer: Jodi H. Beyeler and David Zwier ’12

Goshen College students, led by the PAX Club, built a miniature replica of the Israel/Palestine wall on campus for March 10-11. The wall included two checkpoints, guards and student artwork. Students were required to show an ID card in order to pass through a checkpoint.

This project was one part of a larger educational effort that included an orientation session where students could learn some of the history of Israel/Palestine conflict in the Middle East and how/why the wall has been constructed, with an effort to explore both sides of the conflict. Students also organized a number of talk-back sessions for students to reflect on the experience and what they learned.

This project was organized by students in response to concerns about a humans rights and environmental issue. The Wall Project sought to address complexities in a non-biased, peaceful manner.
