Recently Rory wrote, produced, and directed the new faith-based family feature film, Guard Dog.

Crusader Knight will honor Margie Desruisseaux, a former Faith Lutheran administrator who is credited for creating programs and fundraisers that helped build the school into what is now the largest not-for-profit school in Nevada and the largest Lutheran school in the United States.  Desruisseaux will be presented with the 2018 Heikotter Award, an honor bestowed annually on donors who have shown leadership and dedication to the school.

“We have been blessed by Margie’s contributions to Faith Lutheran and are excited to honor her with the award she created 15 years ago,” said Dr. Steve Buuck, CEO, Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School.
