Gavin Loo ’93

There’s no way to know how, where or when life journeys will intersect. In 1992, Shonn Colbrunn ’94 and Gavin Loo ’93 posed for a photograph during a weekend trip to Budapest while attending the college’s Vienna Summer School. This past May, they reconnected in Hong Kong and recreated the moment. Shonn, who directs Hope’s Boerigter Center for Calling and Career, was there on a Hope business trip with colleagues Dr. Deirdre Johnston (communication, global education) and Dr. Deb Harvey ’83 Swanson (sociology and social work) to discuss partnership opportunities with Lingnan University, learn more about the university’s highly regarded service learning program and to connect with alumni in the area. “Same guys. Different continent. 27 years later. Same commitment to Hope,” Shonn writes.
