“Some have called me ‘jack of all trades’ because there are myriad things I want to be involved with,” he said. “But they all boil down to two things: First, I want to become more Christlike and do it with others through innovative mission work. Second, I want to be a force for changing the economic landscape in rural Ghana and beyond by taking on business projects that can positively impact the lives of poor communities and bring dignifying jobs to families.” Jack Oduro ('18) is a fantastic example of how our graduates carry their faith into the workplace.

Thank you to Holden Lunsford and Brandon Avedikian ('13) from Holt Lunsford Commercial for spending time with our STAR students recently. Lunsford and Avedikian talked to students about commercial real estate, client relations, and having a good work ethic. Destanie Crist said that a great piece of advice they shared was that you "shouldn't make long-term decisions in the heat of the moment. Be ready to assess and understand all scenarios." We appreciate alumni and friends who take the time to share their knowledge and experience with our students and give them a taste of what their future careers could look like.

Today’s the day! We hope you’ll honor someone today with a gift to the College of Business Administration as we seek to honor Jozell Brister. Anyone who has attended or worked in the College of Business Administration in the last 4 decades has been impacted and influenced by Jozell. Since she was hired in the early 1980's, Jozell was responsible for so many important milestones in the college from the building and design of the Mabee Business Building to AACSB accreditation. As ACU's Day of Giving honors those who have influenced us for good, we think it's right to give honor to Jozell as we seek to name the second-floor classroom wing after her, a place where she spent so much time and invested so heavily into her students and colleagues. We ask that you join our former deans as they lead us in this matching campaign where every dollar you donate will be matched up to $250,000 as we honor this amazing educator and friend. Learn more and make a gift to COBA at acu.edu/acugives. #ACUGives #supportwildcats #acugivesback
