Lorraine Doran, Academic Support Center
After receiving a degree in Elementary Education from Bryan, I went on to earn a Masters in Education from Tusculum College in 2007. My teaching experiences have afforded me many opportunities to work with a variety of ages, backgrounds, and learning abilities. I have always enjoyed helping others in the learning process. Working in the Academic Support Center is an exciting opportunity where I can see students encouraged to sharpen and strengthen the unique abilities and gifts God has given them as they prepare to go into the world to serve Him.
Pamela Hollis, Writing Center Director
Whether working with peers as an undergraduate student, ESL students in the Pacific, or my students at Bryan, I have found an almost universal insecurity when someone shares a sample of his or her writing: Did I do it right? Do you see what I mean? Do you understand me? I've learned that to help others with their writing is to love and to serve.
Natasha Buckler, Writing Center Assistant Director
Since graduating from Bryan in 2007, I have taught high school English in Jasper County, Georgia and worked on short stories and an historical novel. This fall, I will be teaching freshman classes at Bryan and at Chattanooga State, in addition to moving to Hixson, where I plan to grade lots of papers and work on my own writing in the time that will be left.
Sam Youngs, Proctoring Services Coordinator
I work part-time in the ASC this year as a tutor, test proctor, and writing consultant. I am also an Adjunct Instructor in Christian Thought at Bryan College and Adjunct Professor of Religion at Chattanooga State Community College. I received my B.A. from the University of South Florida, double-majoring in Religious Studies and Literature. My M.A. in Religion was earned from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in S. Hamilton, MA. Teaching and mentoring are my vocational passions; these passions are shared by my wife Anna, who is a key speaker and ministry director for The Discipleship Network of America (www.dnaministries.org). We love to pursue relational, discipling interactions with students and young people. We live in Dayton, TN.
