Letter from the Editor

“Whether we tell the story of a student, faculty member, alumnus, or donor, sacrifice is at the heart of every Pepperdine story.”

When President Benton spoke these words at the sold-out Pepperdine Associates dinner this spring, he highlighted a key theme we see resonate in each issue of Pepperdine Magazine.

Take this issue, the first of our fourth volume. We salute students past and present who know all too well the idea of sacrifice through serving their country in the armed forces. We meet scholars who dedicate their intellect and energy to advancing knowledge that is useful and meaningful to the community, athletes who bring everything they have to their sport, and artists who pursue their passion to create and generously share their talents with each of us.

Thank you for joining us for another glimpse into the heart of the Pepperdine story.
