Why Do You Love Hope?
Hope College is a pillar in the Holland community. Mike gets a chance to work with so many great people within the campus, and get to meet and serve so many other people who support and love the college. Hope has a beautiful campus and amazing facilities, but the staff and students make Hope College truly special to come to work each day.
Outside The College
Mike and his wife, Kelly, who is a graduate of Hope, have two kids, Brady and Brynn, who make them laugh every day. They love going for family walks, playing every single sport imaginable in their backyard and going to the park. Brady is already working hard to play basketball for Hope in 2032.
