  • My Story

    I look back at my own educational career and realize how formative my undergraduate experience was in shaping my interests, convictions, and desires to continue my education. As Hugh Brock noted at the Annual Meeting of the North Greenville Baptist Association in 1894, “true education prepares the heart as well as the mind both for time and for eternity.” I strive to continue that legacy within my own teaching and within the honors curriculum. I believe nurturing the life of the mind is an important aspect of our Christian calling and essential to Christian discipleship.

    Favorite Course to Teach: worldview (honors) and history of South Carolina (history)
