I am thankful that God brought me to Bryan College.  Working and interacting with the students, faculty, staff, and administration here is a blessing.  Every day, I know I will encounter warm smiles and words of encouragement.  My colleagues have often shared their wisdom to see that I continue to grow in knowledge in my areas of expertise and to improve as an instructor.  My students frequently give me great joy with their hard work, their desire to learn, and their friendly conversations.  I have grown in my faith and knowledge of Christ through experiences at Bryan College.  Thank you everyone at Bryan College.
