Licensed Teacher recognition has been extended to Mrs. Christiana Ebi Ndukwe of Nigeria and Gladys Bass of Denver, Colorado. Christiana will be continuing and expanding her work in Nigeria. Gladys Bass will be continuing to work closely with Jim Lewis in the work in Denver. A private ordination service was held, at the recommendation of the Licensing and Ordination Committee and with the approval of the full Board of Trustees of AUC, during Conference at Glenwood Manor. This ordination was of Mary Ellen Swartz of Tucson, Arizona. Application for ordination did not come soon enough for Mary Ellen to be processed for ordination in June with the ordinands. She will be receiving the blessing of the Conference body in June 1972.
