We had a very favorable and productive summer recruiting new students to Leland. In addition to our returning students, we have a total of 22 new students on our three campuses this semester. In Arlington, part of our recruiting success can be attributed to a special grant for scholarships that we were awarded by the Duke Street Trinity Baptist Memorial Foundation.
Trula Duane Scholarships went to new and returning students who are members of churches within the NorthStar Church Network. These very generous scholarships are guaranteed for the 2017-2018 academic year. We are always looking to bolster our scholarship offerings, so if your church or foundation would like to partner with us, please let us know!
Our successful recruiting summer has made our institution stronger. We have three new students at both our Southwest and Hampton Roads’ campuses. And, in Arlington, we have a total of 16 new students across our School of Ministry and Master’s degree programs. We solicit your continued prayers for all our new and returning students. Moreover, please continue to spread the word about the John Leland Center. We have found that undoubtedly our greatest recruiting tool is the word of mouth recommendations which come from our students, faculty, Trustees and Alumni. Thank you all for your steadfast support, prayers and encouragement!
