Antioch’s Moses

Nov 13th, 2008

Letter to the Editor, Yellow Springs News

Some of us have been looking for a Moses to lead us into the promised land of a freestanding, prospering, undergraduate liberal arts college. We think of an inspired reformer like Horace Mann, or a creative genius like Arthur Morgan.

Look no further, friends. Moses is here. But Moses is not a single individual. Moses is a collective of faculty, students, staff and supportive alumni. We call it “Non-stop” because we are not supposed to call it Antioch. But it is the soul of Antioch College. These are talented, dedicated educators and students. They have created a college with very limited resources. They are teaching and learning.

This is the Moses that will lead us to a fully functioning Antioch that we can call by name.

As in the 1850s and the 1920s, they need money. A lot of money. You can help. Send what you can to College Revival Fund, P.O. Box 444, Yellow Springs, Ohio 45387.

You can earmark it for Nonstop.
