“When I’m not on the softball field, I am spending time with my husband Lewis and children, Aden, Brenden, and Madisen. As a family, we enjoy spending a lot of time at Lincoln College events, athletic games, and theatre productions. Our children really enjoy being around the ‘big kids’!! In many ways our students at Lincoln College are great role models for kids. I appreciate the kindness and sincerity that our students show many young people within our community, whether it is a camp, fieldtrip, community outreach, or community service. I am proud to call Lincoln College my home, and the people here my family,” says Coach Wurth
