A year before the alumni in this photo came to APU from all over Africa, Rusty joined the faculty. They were overjoyed to see him again after more than thirty years, especially as only days before, he had not expected to be in town when they were here last week for their reunion. He was taking them on a tour of campus Thursday when this photo was taken and he gave a heartfelt toast to them at the banquet on Friday night. It was a terrible blow to learn of his death at the end of what was such a joyous and successful occasion.
We will miss you, Rusty Myers. You have been a dear friend and colleague to us. We grieve with your family.
