The fruits of her labor

I appreciated your article on Tilahun Mendedo, our new president here at Concordia College in Selma. I have only one complaint, and that is when your author remarked that Dr. Rosa Young (the founder of Concordia) was not a Lutheran. While she may not have been one when she first contacted the Synodical Conference, she most certainly became a staunch Lutheran who worked tirelessly to help spread Lutheranism throughout Alabama. The fruits of her labors are still visible today.
