Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. (Psalm 145:2-3)
Today’s update includes CARES grant aid for eligible students, Stinger comes to the new Chick-fil-A, the latest COVID-19 theories from our faculty experts, academic honors, a special two-week June term designed especially for incoming freshman and high school students, and a Cedarville alumna sails to New York City to serve COVID-19 patients.
CARES Grants – Cedarville University has received emergency student aid funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to assist eligible students with expenses incurred as a result of the coronavirus. To be eligible for a $400 grant, students must have successfully submitted the FAFSA and received the results with no outstanding requirements for completion. Recipients were enrolled in at least 12 hours at the end of the spring 2020 term in an undergraduate or graduate residential program. Eligible students were notified by email last week.
Stinger Comes to Chick-fil-A – Watch as crews welcome Stinger to the new Chick-fil-A. He’s ready to welcome students in the fall!
Weekly COVID-19 School of Pharmacy Update – Watch as infectious disease expert Dr. Zach Jenkins, Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice, discusses the latest COVID-19 theories and research. Please check out the video archive where you’ll find all of the COVID-19 resources, including last week’s Town Hall on “Reopening the Economy,” featuring Cedarville faculty experts.
Academic Honors 2019-20 – Even though we were unable to hold an Honors Chapel this spring, schools and departments selected worthy students to receive the endowed scholarships and awards presented annually. Please view this year’s program to see all Academic Honors recipients, including members of the Class of 2020 who graduated with honors.
Cedarville Nursing Alum Making News – Rachel Hartley, a 2015 nursing graduate and current M.S.N. student, headlined news in New York City and on local stations this week when she shared her story of sailing with her husband from Virginia to Brooklyn to care for COVID-19 patients at NYU Langone Hospital. Here is just one of Rachel’s interviews, Sailing Away for a Cause, from May 14. We are so thankful for Cedarville alumni, like Rachel, who are using their professional skills to care well for people and share the good news of the Gospel during this pandemic.
In Case You Missed It – On Friday, Cedarville announced plans for students’ return to campus in August! We can’t wait to have students move in to the new residence hall and enjoy dining at the beautiful Chick-fil-A facility. We are ready to do life and community together again, and we will keep you informed throughout the summer as decisions are made.
