Ben Merkle is the president of New Saint Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho, but perhaps more famously here at Ambrose, the son of longtime and beloved kindergarten teacher, Anita Merkle. Ben’s talk will be a terrific encouragement to you as a parent to keep your eye on the prize even in the midst of endless distractions.
