As a school, PDS focuses great energy on academic achievement and preparation, and we are very proud of the learning and growth of our boys. But PDS is about so much more than knowledge, skills and grades, and this edition of the PDS Spirit touches on two non-academic areas: friendships and alumni in the ministry.
Our alumni often tell me that their closest friendships as adults are ones that were established and nurtured at PDS. PDS alumnus McLean Wilson ‘90 spoke to the 6th grade boys this year about the importance of developing godly friendships, and we share the text from that talk. The magazine also features several alumni who are serving in the ministry, and how their days at PDS played a part in that career path.
I hope this edition of the PDS Spirit reminds you of friends and fun times from your boyhood and that it deepens your gratitude to those who have dedicated themselves to advancing God’s kingdom.
