Alumni news

I am pleased to announce that three alumni of Redeemer's political science programme have recently taken on new employment opportunities.

Last week Eric T. Hogeterp (graduated 1993), who is a faithful reader of this blog, assumed the position of Special Assistant: Policy for the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Member of Parliament for Beauce (Québec) and Minister of Industry in the new Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

In September Dr. Paul A. Brink (1993) will become Associate Professor of Political Studies at Gordon College, Wenham, Massachusetts. I myself have a number of personal connections with Gordon, as two sisters, a brother-in-law, a niece and a nephew-in-law all graduated from there. Moreover, my first trip to Europe back in 1975 was with Gordon's European Seminar. It was on the plane that summer between Amsterdam and Boston that I first met Dr. William A. Harper, who was teaching political studies at Gordon. Brink will be replacing Harper on his retirement. One more connection: James W. Skillen, of the Center for Public Justice, taught at Gordon in the late 1970s before moving to Dordt College and eventually to the Center.

Finally, Derek Miedema (1995), formerly pastor of the Christian Reformed Church in Dresden, Ontario, has taken a position as Researcher at the Centre for Faith and Public Life with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.

Congratulations and may God bless them as they serve in their new positions.
