A Testimony of a Life Transformed

A Testimony of a Life Transformed

August 31, 2016

English familyAt Cedarville University, we talk about the approximately 1,000 days students spend on our campus. But for us, it’s much more than just a slogan: It’s 1,000 days of intentionally shaping students to honor God with their lives — in their vocations, in their families, and in their communities.

For one recent graduate, his 1,000 days led him all the way to Washington, D.C., where he is prepared to serve and make a difference in the lives of the people around him.

Following a successful internship with the office of a Congressman from Virginia, 2016 graduate Grant English recently accepted a full-time staff position with Ohio’s eighth district in the U.S. House of Representatives. When asked why he wanted to work in Washington, D.C., Grant responded with, “Where else can I make a bigger difference in our society than starting with our government?” Cedarville instilled in him a desire to make a profound impact on his world and equipped him to be a servant-leader to the glory of God.

His parents, Evan and Layne English, Cedarville graduates themselves, are grateful for the education their son received and are excited for Grant’s future. “His last four years at Cedarville truly refined him into the man he is today,” explained Evan. “We feel incredibly blessed that God has provided this opportunity for him.”

As you work through the college decision with your student, consider the life-transforming education at Cedarville University!
