We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Samford’s faculty and administration.  A special thank you to professors Amanda Howard and Gregory Kawell for their mentorship, availability and caring attitude.  Our daughter thrived during her undergraduate studies at Samford due to the institution’s high academic standards coupled with a Christian-based value system.  Thank you for setting the bar high!  She is leaving as a very confident, self-reliant and highly motivated young adult.  During her four years at Samford, she was challenged academically, participated in a number of Samford-sponsored community outreach programs as well as other extracurricular activities.  She was able to discover her passions and grow both intellectually and spiritually through these experiences.  Consequently, she is well-prepared to embark on her graduate studies this fall. 

The world is better because of Samford’s all-encompassing approach to education—and the extra efforts of faculty members like Amanda Howard and Greg Kawell.
