Langley, British Columbia—It was a celebration of 40 years of marriage and many years of service to the community and Trinity Western University students. Monday, October 2 marked the day that students, friends and dignitaries came to honour the anniversary of Trinity Western President Neil Snider and his wife, Marlie. Among those who spoke at TWU’s all-campus chapel were Kurt Alberts, mayor of the township of Langley, Marlene Grinnell, mayor of the city of Langley, Rich Coleman, Member of the Legislative Assembly for Fort Langley-Aldergrove, and Gerry St. Germain, Canadian senator and neighbor of the Sniders.
Described as a pillar of strength in the community by Senator St. Germain, Neil and Marlie Snider have lived in Langley for 26 years. Serving as president from 1974 until present, Neil Snider has led Trinity Western from college to university status and continues to make TWU an educational institute of high academic standing that attracts hundreds of new students to the Lower Mainland every year.
