Certain people stand out in the life of Trinity Christian College and on February 2, the school honored four of them. Professor of Business John Kooyenga ’66 accepted the award for Alumnus of the Year. Kooyenga has taught at Trinity for more than 25 years.
He has been instrumental in placing many of Trinity’s business graduates in jobs throughout the Chicagoland area. Kooyenga has expanded his influence in recent years by teaching in the adult studies program as well as the traditional program. He and his wife, Audrey, have recently established a scholarship for business majors.
“I’ve had the honor of working with committed students, faculty, and staff,” Kooyenga said. “It’s been a remarkable journey and I’m honored to receive this award.”
