Alumni Homecoming 2019 | Judson University Christian College

Homecoming and Family Weekend 2019

 

Judson welcomed home alumni and current student families on the weekend of September 26-28. 2019. Network night featured alumni Judson alumnae Kesha Kent '05 and '14 from St. Louis, who engaged students and alumni with a massive networking training night. On Friday morning, our Alumni Band (Joshua Hoegh '08, Melissa Hoegh '11, Dr. Warren Anderson '86, Austin Anderson, and Pat Hargis '77) led worship at the Homecoming. Students were also able to hear an inspiring message from Judson alumna Kesha Kent.

Judson honored the 2019 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees at the Friday night Dinner and Awards Ceremony. The university celebrated inductees Andrea Boylard Hagenmaier (Women's Basketball, 1996), Vusa Nkomazana (Men's Soccer, 1998), Rocky DeWayne Robinson (Men's Basketball, 2009), Samantha Vestal (Women's Soccer, 2008), and Brent Weber (Men's Basketball, 1970).

Saturday’s events started early with the Fun Run, alumni delegate meeting and alumni games. Late morning and afternoon events for Homecoming and Family Weekend took place rain and shine. Alumni games and teams played before the women's soccer game. Judson's Homecoming Court was announced and family friendly games, including a rock climbing inflatable, were set up in the field beside the soccer field.

The Alumni Luncheon and Awards Ceremony on Saturday afternoon honored Distinguished Alumni of Marcelo ’96 and Lisa Galvao ’95, founders of All Nations Sports Academy, and Mark Vargas ‘04, consultant, tech entrepreneur in health care and political opinion writer. Judson celebrated Alumnus of the Year Kristy Engel ’91, global consultant for Health for International Ministries. Engel participated through a Skype call since her flight was cancelled.

On Saturday night, Judson celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Worship Art Program Concert, which featured alumni who were part of the worship bands during four different eras – 2000 to 2004, 2004 to 2010, 2011 to 2017 and 2017 to 2019 – as well as the Judson choir. This wonderful night demonstrated how Judson has worshipped during the past 20 years!
