Claudia Patterson dropped her son Kenny off at a Rutgers freshman dorm two years ago filled with optimism. He was a smart, popular athlete.

Holy Thursday's Watch Offers an Opportunity for Reflection and Prayer

My Biggest Lesson Learned in High School

April 12, 2019

For someone who went into high school only knowing I was going to play on the baseball team, my experience led me down a path I could have never imagined. For those who haven’t been to many of the high school Pioneers’ games, I can usually be found sprinting down Lieder Field with my camera, or perched in the corner of the basketball court with all of the action inches from my face.
