President Dr Ray Roennfeldt bows his head in prayer at the end of Avondale College of Higher Education’s Opening Convocation. Earlier, during his speech, Ray encouraged students to use the extra day of this leap year—February 29—to consider what they wanted to accomplish in 2012. He asked about commitment to faith and contribution to service. The message: those who wait for things to happen do not make progress. The challenge: “Leap into this year with enthusiasm.”—Brenton Stacey Credit: Colin Chuang.
