College launches transcultural experience pilot program

Mackenzie Miller Digital Communication 2018

“In the early months of my final semester at Hesston College, I sat down to lunch with President Joe Manickam, or Joe as we all call him. And in a noisy cafeteria over loaded baked potatoes he said this: ‘God loves you, Mackenzie, and Joe has a plan for your life.'”

2018 graduate Mackenzie Miller will spend the 2018-19 academic year in China as the first participant in the pilot program the college is exploring to give students more opportunities for global and career-based experiences. Through a partnership established with Mennonite Partners in China, Miller will be studying Mandarin at Nanjing Normal University, and be engaged in an internship at Zhi-mian Institute.
