Why are you "forever green"?

Russ and I had a great experience at Northwest that shaped us and set us on our way to where we are today.  We are thankful for the positive experience Northwest had on our lives and fortunate for the success and blessings we have had and look forward to giving other young Northwest students some of the advantages we had along the way.
