One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Cedarville Stories Podcast: God is Writing Their Stories

by Clem Boyd, Communication Content Manager

Seniors Nicole Hackett and Tessa Landrum are just a few short weeks from graduation day. Nicole, a professional writing and information design major, and Tessa, a communication major, have grown from the great instructors in their programs and had the opportunity to apply what they’re learning as student writers for Cedarville University Public Relations.

Nicole and Tessa are strong writers who have discovered and crafted great Cedarville stories for God’s glory. From reporting about a nursing alumna who spent her first year after graduation at a hospital in the Congo (Nicole) to a worship major who was mentored and eventually hired by his home church (Tessa), their articles have helped the public relations department do more than share Cedarville news, but also tell the Good News of Jesus Christ.

And while their stories have appeared on media outlets around the country, blessing hundreds of thousands, they’ve also been changed. Their experiences writing Cedarville stories have grown their skills and bolstered their confidence so they can be used of God in the world of professional communications.

Cedarville Public Relations is grateful for Nicole and Tessa’s hard work and dedication.

“Over these four years at Cedarville, I’ve been so poured into, and I feel how richly I have grown, and that gives God glory,” Nicole says during the podcast. “Coming out of that and going into a secular work environment, I will be able to better serve Him, which will give Him glory.”

“I think and hope and pray that through the work that I do, and striving for excellence unto the Lord’s glory and not my own, that He is glorified through that,” Tessa adds.
