Sen. Kyl Encourages and Challenges ACU Graduates

Sen. Kyl Encourages and Challenges ACU Graduates

Nearly 1,500 friends, family and supporters who attended the Arizona Christian University 2012 Commencement on May 12, 2012 at Scottsdale Bible Church were able to celebrate the accomplishments of 94 graduates and hear a challenging message from U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl. Sen. Kyl, listed by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, spoke about his own faith and cited a number of passages of Scripture in his message, which was taped by C-SPAN for a national television broadcast later this summer.  Sen. Kyl strong encouraged graduates to work hard at whatever they were doing, as hard work, discipline and preparation would serve them no matter where God called them. President Len Munsil delivered a charge to the graduates, urging them to set aside cynicism about the future and the economy and embrace the opportunity God has given them in this generation to shine as lights in the midst of a dark world. Provost and Senior Vice President Dr. Gary Damore led the processional with a ceremonial mace hand-crafted by Biblical Studies Chairman Dr. Jerry Burnette. The mace symbolizes the degree-granting authority of Arizona Christian University. At a reception on Friday evening on the campus of ACU, graduating seniors were honored with a variety of awards representing excellence in academics, athletics, music and leadership. The following students were recognized: Outstanding Student in Behavioral Studies: Brittney Meyer Outstanding Student in Biblical Studies: Anne Munsil Outstanding Student in Business Administration: Oscar Ortiz Gonzalez Outstanding Student in Business Administration (DCP): Stephen Szoradi Outstanding Student in Christian Ministries: Tyler Brown Outstanding Student in Christian Service: Dakota Smith Outstanding...

Undergraduate Research Presented at Academy of Science

Undergraduate Research Presented at Academy of Science

On Saturday, April 14, 2012 Arizona Christian University students Jacob Storrer and Belinda Baker presented their research at the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science annual meeting in Glendale. The title of the presentation was “Quantification and Characterization of Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria from Groundwater from Mogollon Rim Arizona.” “I enjoyed having the opportunity to work as a part of a team on the research,” said Jacob.  “Presenting our project was a great experience that allowed us to professionally interact with the researchers from across Arizona and Nevada.  We are pleased that our results will be published in an upcoming edition of the Academy’s Journal,” he added. According to Dr. Perry Baker, sponsor of the project “This is an example of how undergraduate research at Arizona Christian University meets the needs of our students and creates interaction with the community.  Another purpose is to provide ACU with recognition for leadership in undergraduate education. The presentation was well received. Our students did an excellent job of defending their research to the conference attendees.” The project was funded by an Undergraduate Grant-in-Aid received from the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science. Funds from this grant were used to purchase the materials required for the bacterial culture and testing. This research was conducted in the Science Research Laboratory at Arizona Christian University. For more information about undergraduate research at ACU, or if you know of an undergraduate student who may be interested, contact Dr. Perry Baker at...
