Witnessing the Sisters of St. Francis in action throughout his time at Briar Cliff was awe-inspiring for Chris Vos ('91). He often reflects on the impact they've made on his life as well as his passion for educating.
"It's always been my goal to connect with my students in the same way the Sisters connected with me. They were always loving, positive, encouraging and full of life," Chris says. "They were always asking students how they were doing and what they could do to help them to be successful."
Chris fondly remembers Sr. Clo, Sr. Margaret Wick, Sr. Michaela Galles and especially Sr. Margaret Clare Dreckman who took him under her wing for advice and counsel. Hanging in his classroom today is a yarn plaque that she gave to him as a student.
"I truly believe that the education and foundation I received at Briar Cliff from both professors and the Sisters have given me a great basis on which to live my life," Chris says. "Their unconditional love for us provided many of us with the determination to go out and make a difference in the world."
