We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
The 2012 Honoring Our Rivers Anthology includes writing by Marylhurst student, Linda F. Hunter, and Writers' Club participant, Sue Maguigan. The work of faculty member Joan Maiers also appears in the Invited Author section.
Honoring Our Rivers (HOR) is a project of the Willamette Partnership and seeks to educate students about the challenges that Oregon's Watersheds face. HOR provides all teachers with the opportunity to order a free watershed toolkit. After learning how human actions affect the health of our watersheds, students have the opportunity to reflect upon ways that the river has affected their own lives and how others affect the life of the river through words and art. If they decide to submit their work to the judging panel of professionals at Honoring Our Rivers, a panel of judges may select it to be published in the anthology, the tool by which the wider community may discover and reflect upon the multiple interactions and dimensions of the human relationship to our precious Oregon watersheds.
