Whether he’s talking with an Olivet student or seeing a Broadway show with his wife or finalizing a major gift to Olivet, Mike Lingle does everything with enthusiasm. He describes himself as a competitive problem solver who looks for opportunities to help people get excited about things they can be a part of.
Mike is one of five Lingle boys who earned degrees from Olivet. He remembers his college search and his own decision to attend Indiana University. “My dad told me I could go to any college I chose,” he says. “But he was going to pay for me to go to Olivet. I’m so grateful God changed my mind.”
