Your Feedback is Needed
      In the next few days, you will receive an invitation to participate in an alumni survey related to the strategic planning process currently underway at Southern. Our leadership believes it is critically important that we hear from our alumni and their perception of our university. Your feedback will be added to that of our students, parents, staff, faculty, volunteers, trustees, church and school leaders, donors, and local community members. Performa Higher Education is the consulting firm partnering with us on this project and will be responsible for the survey process. The sender email address is input@performahe.com.
      Please be on the look out for this survey (and the opportunity to win a $50 gift certificate) in the next 48 hours. Your participation is greatly appreciated!
Thank You for Helping Students Like Doreen

      Between teaching at a high school and filling her role as a single mom, Doreen never imagined that Southern would be a possibility for her.  However, through her absolute faith in Christ and the help from individuals, she has been provided an opportunity to study for her nursing degree alongside her daughter at Southern.
      The gifts of others not only allow her to have this chance, they also affect the lives of her children.

The Farrow Family

      For the second year in a row the Farrows are celebrating a birthday by encouraging others to make a difference.  Their matching gift challenge in Southern's call center will take place this October.  "The future is elusive, but as long as God provides, we are blessed to give back and make a difference now and for the future."
