First Day of Class!

Hello everyone. I want to wish all the honors program students a blessed and happy semester. I am thrilled to be able to lead the honors seminar for fall 2018. We had a wonderful first class this morning with a great group of students. I am looking forward to working with them throughout the semester!

Go Battlers!

Greetings from Honors student, Taylor Wagner!

Hello, my name is Taylor Wagner. I am a freshman Criminal Justice and Psychology major with a minor in Ministry. I am involved with BCM, SPA, the Mission Team, and the Honors program here on campus. Over Spring break this year, I had the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and travel to Nicaragua for a mission trip. It was my first time out of the country and my first time on an airplane. We installed and supervised water filters, we held a health clinic with anemia testing, and we got to hold a Vacation Bible School with the children. While VBS was going on, we held a nutrition workshop with the parents. It was a truly life changing experience and I am looking forward to going again!

Hopefully, my future career will be involved with conservation, as I hope to preserve the animals and natural wonders that we have left to us. More specifically, I work with organisms in Order Chiroptera, better known as bats. While many people view bats as pests, or even terrifying animals, one of my life goals is to better illuminate their crucial role on earth and in our everyday lives.
