- We are pleased to announce that top honors for the Chapel’s inaugural “Easter Peeps® Show went to the staff of the Office of Church Relations, for their entry “Jesus Heals a Peepalitic.” Congratulations to Deb Albers, Susan Collins and Dionne Wisniewski for being named Peeps Mavens for 2010.

Faculty, students and staff, as well as alumni, were eligible to enter. All of the entries were judged according to the criteria of overall presentation and attention to craft; Biblical accuracy and artistic merit with extra credit in this category through design references to famous works of Biblical art.
