Cedarville Stories Fun Facts About Dick Blanc

Blanc has always enjoyed venturing into the unknown. At the age of 19, he and some friends sailed across the Atlantic Ocean. He is always excited for a new entrepreneurial opportunity, but even then, he needs help navigating new waters. That’s where his habit of reading the entire Bible each year has been pivotal. This practice started during his undergraduate days at Cedarville. Cedarville offers a four-year Bible-reading plan for students to also feed themselves from God’s Word.
