Encircle Fall 2012
A Word from the Editors
We live in an increasingly complex and ever-changing world. At Centenary, we respond by readying graduates to tackle today’s challenges while preparing them to address future issues not yet known.
This edition of Encircle provides an in-depth look at some of today’s most pressing issues at local, national, and international levels. The articles that follow explore the work of our students, faculty, and alumni as they convene with world leaders in Chicago to share lessons of peace, overcome the polarized environment in Washington, D.C., to effect change, and take on education reform in Louisiana. Encircle follows members of the Centenary family overseas to the Olympic Games in London where they encourage athletes to compete clean and to Haiti where they are changing lives through humanitarian efforts. We’ll also examine local efforts to make the Shreveport-Bossier area more sustainable.
Most importantly, you will see how members of the Centenary community—current students, alumni, faculty, and others—draw from their Centenary experiences to engage and lead in their communities and in the world.
