Hope benefi ts in numerous ways from its hometown of Holland, Mich., not least of all because the campus is adjacent to the award-winning downtown, and in turn serves as a resource in partnership with the community. Indeed, the college owes its existence to Holland’s founder, who established the Pioneer School from which the college grew because he knew that education was essential to the city’s future. The annual Hope-Holland Community Day, in its 47th year this past September 1, celebrates the relationship, an opportunity for the campus and Holland communities to come together for a picnic and a home football game (some 4,250 strong at newly renovated Holland Municipal Stadium). As Holland Mayor Kurt Dykstra said in remarks from the 50-yard line to the capacity home audience, there may be communities and colleges with relationships that are as strong, but there certainly aren’t any with relationships that are better. Printed using soy-based inks. June 2012 October 2012 3
