Three children – Katie is finishing med school at KU in Wichita; Peter is working on his Masters in Aerospace Engineering and married Elena who is working on her Masters in Curriculum for Education; Courtney is teaching Math at John Marshall middle school in Wichita, and teaching high school girls swimming at Northwest.
My four brothers and a sister also attended Tabor: Brothers Ken, Bob, and Dennis Penner farm together in western Kansas (Dennis is a member of the Tabor College Board of Directors); Ron, is the pastor at Kingsburg (Calif.) Mennonite Brethren Church); and her sister, Laura Dutra, is a teacher in Kingsburg.
I also enjoy playing piano, reading, biking, hiking, cruises, and relaxing on beaches.
In my role as Director of Alumni, I’m eager to share what’s new at Tabor College with everyone. There are so many positive things to talk about. I loved the Tabor College I attended, but the college has continued to move forward in so many areas, and has a vision to do even more. I feel blessed to be able to share this vision with others.
