Where Are They Now: Lois Ludden
Lois Ludden’s servanthood at Nebraska Christian has been very important around the school. It all began as she started to attend a local church and met some people affiliated with the school. “I came to know God in August 1971, and He has been showing me what to do since,” she says. “I learned about NC from Berniece Cash in 1972. I started as a dishwasher part time shortly after that, and two years later, I began working in the office.” Ludden worked in the office until her retirement a decade ago, but that didn’t mark the end of her involvement with NC! Since then she has served Nebraska Christian by selling admission tickets to athletic events, preparing mailings, processing Campbell’s Soup Labels and Box Tops for Education, and serving at the Harvest Festival and the (now defunct) Advance Dinner.
“Nebraska Christian has changed quite a bit since I began working there. We’ve seen major changes in technology, just working more with computers. I have seen many superintendents come and go. I’ve gotten to know many students over the years, and they’re great to work with,” she says.
Despite the changes Ludden has seen, the school has been a great tool in her life and in the lives of others. “I thank God for directing me to NC and for the many people there that have been fun to work with,” she says. “They have been like family to me. I see God in their lives, and it has been encouraging me to know God better.”
While Ludden recently retired from taking admission at home sporting events, she can still be seen at NC collecting soup labels and box tops and helping serve at events. Lois Ludden is a great example of a faithful servant, and those around her have been blessed by her love for the Lord and for Nebraska Christian.
