Dear Friend of Carver,
By His grace, through your generous support, we did it!
Carver grads advance to traditional grad programs.
Emmanuel is a second generation Carver man from Lithonia, Georgia. His dad Poleon Griffin, class of ’90, pastors Oak Grove Baptist in Jackson, GA. Emmanuel was the first student to graduate from Carver’s new Psychology program (2015) with a B.S. degree in Psychology. He also played point guard for the Carver Cougars creating a lasting memory when he hit the game winning buzzer beater against Benedict College (Columbia, SC) in his last game as a senior.
Emmanuel went on to complete his Master’s in Education and Sports Management (July 2017 with a 3.4 GPA) at North Central University (graduation pic above) and now serves as the Academic Program Director at Cedar Grove Middle School in Gwinnet County. In addition, Emmanuel serves on the faculty there and as the Head Boys Basketball Coach. It’s a dream come true to see graduates from this new Psychology program gain acceptance into a major non-seminary Master’s program, graduate and secure gainful life impacting employment.
There are quite a few other stories similar to this one. The Lord continues to send some of His choice students to Carver and it's exciting to see more options opening up for them in light of our additional majors in Psychology and Business.
As we move further into the 2017-2018 school year, we want to invite you to send a generous gift to help us educate students like Emmanuel to become biblically minded, professionally competent men and women of character. Unlike many halls of higher learning, Carver’s aim is not to simply meet our country’s work force needs, it’s much higher.
We believe as King Solomon did, that we are to urge students to “tune their ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding” in order that “they will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and they will gain knowledge of God” (Proverbs 2:2,5).
This aim is manifested in Emmanuel Griffin and other Carver graduates.
Thanks for taking a moment to read my letter and pray about making a financial gift of $50, $100, $250, $500 or more to Carver. Let me hear from you today with your financial support. Thank you for your valued friendship.
Robert W. Crummie
