There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford University. Here, a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people. From the classrooms and laboratories to the artistic stages and athletic venues, the minds and souls of Samford people make the real difference. Samford people bring the best, they are demanding and compassionate, they know the importance of engaging the world with a faith that calls them to serve. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

Perhaps you don’t know a Samford employee named Terry Windsor, but her support has been a lifeline over the years as Jeanna and I have hosted guests in the president’s home.

Terry is the housekeeper, working long hours to maintain the home so that it is ready for the next event.  With more than 9,000 guests through the house on an annual basis, Terry’s role is essential.  Jeanna and I regret very much that she will be retiring in a few days.  Terry has earned our undying gratitude.

The world is better because of Terry Windsor.
