Night of Storytelling Fills Seats and Warms Hearts

sigmatd_identitySeats filled on April 1 in the Great Commission Hall for Sigma Tau Delta’s Night of Storytelling with professors Adam Ayers, Ph.D., and Jerry Camery-Hoggatt, Ph.D.

Meaningful stories, laughter and snacks setup this storytelling eve for success. Sigma Tau Delta Co-president Elaina Ahmed said the event’s turnout, with every seat taken, was a great surprise. As co-presidents of Vanguard’s English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, sophomore Ahmed and junior Annie Sparks led the creation of the event with the help of the society’s former president, alumni Michelle Schonken ’13.

For the event, both professors shared original short stories. Dr. Ayers told comedic tales and used accents to bring his stories to life. Dr. Camery-Hoggatt told a “tender” story about his background growing up in the South, Sigma Tau Delta Co-president Elaina Ahmed said.  Along with entertainment, their stories shared important messages, like the importance of really looking at a person, and not just their physical image, Ahmed said.

Looking back on the event, Ahmed described it as “one of those moments” where the Vanguard community came together, enjoyed one another’s company and turned their attention toward God. “We definitely look forward to repeating this and making it bigger and better each time,” she said.
