  • James Hoke (’04), Visiting Assistant Professor of Religion at Luther College, recently published on the peer-reviewed Feminist Studies in Religion blog.
  • From Father Matt Kiehl (’06): “One of the greatest teachers I’ve ever had was Mr. Phil Sorrentino, a gifted government instructor and the wildly successful coach of Maggie Walker’s ‘We the People’ team. His humble authenticity, sharp intellect, wry humor, unfailing passion, and deep concern for his students were great gifts to me and my classmates during our own high school years, and his example remains particularly inspiring to me now as I teach high school myself. Today he came to visit our school as our own ‘We the People’ club held their first mock hearings, and I was thrilled to show him around and share dinner with some colleagues. What a wonderful throwback!”
