Did You Know?Recently, some of the staff members were reading the story of our college’s history in Songs of the Reaper. As we read through it, we were struck by the rich history of Horizon College.  While there were many facts and stories that stood out, the one thing we could not ignore were the parallels between history and modern day.  … Read More Did You K [...]
