Asked by Janie from PA

Q: Are there Swartzentruber Amish in the US? Where are they located?

A: Yes, Janie. There is a large settlement in the Mt. Hope area of Holmes County, Ohio. And I’ve heard there is also a large settlement in northern New York. There are probably other settlements, but I’m only sure of those. 

Thanks for the question Janie!

Serena, acceptance speech for Alumna of the Year 2014
Serena, acceptance speech for Alumna of the Year 2014

A couple months ago, Serena was asked to attend Ohio Valley University‘s Homecoming Weekend 2014. She knew she might have to say a few words since she was a student of OVU, but she didn’t dream she’d be picked as the Alumna of the Year! She thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, and really enjoyed the singing and talent performances by the current students of OVU. Below is a copy of Dr. Harold Shank’s (President of OVU) quarterly newsletter commenting on the homecoming weekend.
