NORTH NEWTON, KAN. The Bethel College forensics squad took fifth place in school sweepstakes at the Midland Peacemaker Tournament on Saturday, Nov. 8 at Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, Neb. Finishing as the top Kansas college, Bethel’s team had three members who placed individually. Freshman Justin Shook, Lyons, placed second in After Dinner Speaking. Eric Stucky, junior from Moundridge, placed fourth in Poetry. Robert Weaver, freshman from Wichita, earned fifth place in Extemporaneous Speaking.
The combination of community, service, and academics are what stand out to me about [being a] Thresher. With small classes, attentive professors, and the focus on service…students get the opportunity to excel in multiple areas.
