Memorable moments

Singing “The Lord Bless You and Keep You” is one of the special Harding traditions I cherish. We sing it to the graduating seniors as they stand at the front of the Benson on their last day of chapel, and the faculty sing it to these same students eight days later at commencement. Three ceremonies May 5 concluded the spring semester. All of these occasions created memorable moments. One of the hig ...

Fostering family

How God knit two couples together with one group of siblings “It’s been a total God thing,” Monique Richardson Scrip (’09) says. When she and her husband, Matt, adopted three brothers out of foster care, they knew their family would grow, but they didn’t expect to bring another family into theirs — the family who had adopted the boys’ two sisters, alumni Matt (’08) and Kelly Allen White (’07). The journey they have shared together has redefined what family looks like for them. For Matt and Kelly, the motivation to become foster care parents came from different directions.

How Harding works

When looking at the big picture, it is easy to say that Harding works — it is effective in its mission to educate and serve the world. But to really take in all that the University does, you start to wonder, “How?” How do all of the students get fed? How does the University decide when to close for snow? How do I get to ride on the Harding plane? Harding magazine looked at these questions and more to find out how Harding works. How does Harding book talent? Harding hosts a number of big names each year through concerts and the American Studies Institute Distinguished Lecture Series. Securing artists like Lecrae and Jesse McCartney and speakers like Laura Bush and Ruby Bridges starts with doi ...

A time for reflection

I had the whole summer to prepare and plan and think about the year. The day I got elected I started scheduling meetings so I could be prepared — so the rest of the Student Association would have a solid direction moving forward. I didn’t want 
students to see us as a representation of thought but of concrete action. In the fall, my energy had to shift, and my focus had to be in two places. I’ve h ...
