|Nina and fellow Hall of Famer Adam Hill |
Myrtle Beach '02
Nina and I shared a lot of adventures and a lot of conversations of over the 4 years I was at WMUMC and for another year or so after I left. We talked about everything. She was a young woman of great faith, and I was honored that she trusted me enough to share the joys and concerns of her journey with me. So many of the younger girls looked up to her in a variety of ways, and they could not have chosen a better role model. She also was our primary baby-sitter for Will in those early years, and we knew we could always count on her. She was a part of our family.

I know that Nina was one of the people hurt and disappointed the most by my later actions and failures. I cannot express how sorry I am that I failed her- and so many others. Even so, when Kado went out of business last year, she took the time to send Marilyn a Facebook message telling us the news and thanking me for all the good times we shared there. It is that kind of loving, grace-filled attitude that makes it an honor and a pleasure for me to welcome Nina to my Hall of Fame. It was students like her who made my ministry a joy for me all of those years, and I do hope that someday we will be able to celebrate together again. Until then, may God continue to bless her and her family.
Because of Jesus,
