Faculty Profiles

Meet Dr. Adina Scruggs, Assistant Professor of Business

I’m married to Gary Scruggs (18 years) and we have 3 children: Kendall, Jacob & Natalie. I started graduate school (M.B.A.) because I wanted to learn more.    Two marketing graduate degrees later, I should confess that I do love learning. It is my desire to encourage others and I have found that teaching gives me the  perfect blend of encouraging others and learning.

As an instructor, I seek to encourage students and show them what a difference a relationship with Christ has made in my own life.  How we treat others in the   marketplace comes from our worldview. With a Biblical worldview, we can treat others respectfully and still be successful.

I realize the “educate students” portion of the missions statement is part of the positional role as professor, but the personal responsibility in teaching is best defined by the mission phrase “to become servants of Christ.”  This phrase puts a higher accountability on my life and forces a dependence on Him for all that I accomplish, inside and outside the classroom.

The final phrase of Bryan College’s mission statement  “to make a difference in today’s world” is one objective that I personally try to accomplish, but with the realization that without Christ, whatever difference I make in this world would be in vain. My relationship with Christ is truly what makes a difference in my life and what I strive to consistently communicate through words and actions.
