Closing Look: Up, Up and Away!

The list of student organizations at Hope doesn’t quite make it from A to Z, but it gets close in running from “Anchor” (the student newspaper) to “Yoga.” It’s a diverse cohort that newly includes, as shown here, the Hope Association of Rocketry and Performance Aviation. As chronicled in HARPA’s online report about its first launch event this past fall, more than 100 spectators gathered to watch three lift-offs, including the 5-foot, 1-inch rocket that is pictured, which climbed 3,400 feet in the air at more than 500 miles per hour.
