Speaking of education...we are approaching the end of our Faith and Culture Class with Dr. Clay Cooke. It has been absolutely fantastic. We will be getting photos this week. Thanks Clay.
Afterward, I led us through the second of our group debriefs for the Highlands Ability Battery. In addition, I have been meeting one-on-one with Fellows. The conversations have been so good. Very thankful for the opportunity to be able to administer this assessment.
GIVING SNAPSHOT and ISRAEL UPDATE
Thanks to those many of you who have been financially supporting us this year. For those of you who have had intentions to support us or were waiting for tax refunds to come around, please consider this opportunity to contribute. We are a small, lean nonprofit so a little bit can go a long way. Thanks!

We have had a couple quiet weeks on the admissions front. We are interviewing a pretty exceptional candidate this Friday and are awaiting applications from a few others.
The good news is that this week I am having high level conversations with Winston-Salem State University, as well as a few face-to-face meetings with potential candidates; meetings at Wake Forest University, both in their office of career and professional development and their athletic department; and next week a presentation at Elon University. Very encouraging.
