Great opportunity for local young professionals!

Who doesn’t love talking about personal finance and conflict resolution? Seriously, though, learning to master these uncomfortable-but-necessary life skills now can pay big dividends later (pun intended).

These presenters are experts on grown-up topics like estate planning, leadership development and resolving conflict in the workplace. They’ll provide valuable insights into personal and career development tactics that can help jumpstart a young professional’s leadership journey.

Brantlys share thoughts on returning to Africa five years after Kent nearly died from Ebola - ACU Today | Abilene Christian University

“I don’t think a day has gone by in the last five years when I have not thought about Ebola in some way. It’s not a vivid, raw PTSD kind of thing – we’re not still living in that. But it has left an indelible mark on us, and it will forever be a point in time we look back to as a major mile marker in our family.” –Kent Brantly

When Kent Brantly, M.D., (’03) and his wife, Amber (Carroll ’06) told their young children they were moving back to Africa five years after Kent nearly lost his life to Ebola, a tangle of emotions emerged – sad, excited, happy, nervous. Ten-year-old Ruby describes it by saying “most of me is...

Hey y'all! This is my first year at ACU and I'm from south Houston. One of my friends back home is doing this fundraiser to help support families who were effected by the storm. I was lucky enough to only have my garage flooded but I have many friends around the corner who were evacuated by helicopter and boats due to high flooding in their houses. Even if you can't buy a shirt or even donate, please share so we can help Houston from Abilene God Bless Sara
