An Awesome Testimony

As many of you know, Steven worked for 9 1/2 years at Belhaven College in the Admissions Office. He was simply incredible in this position. God really used him much in the lives of many students. Yesterday he received the nicest note from one of the students and while he will probably kill me I wanted to share it with you. I left off the student's name because well, it's kinda personal.

"I dont know if you remember me or not but in 2002 you worked for the admissions department at Belhaven. I had a 1.4 GPA and you went to bat for me and I was accepted because of you. It was my last shot at making something out of myself. Its 2010 now and I am writing my dissertation to get my Ph.D from UMC. Ouf of everyone that I have met in academics that helped me, you were by far the most influential. Thank you Mr. Scott for taking a chance on me and I promised I wouldnt let you down!".

Steven, what an example you are for us about how to treat people and anticipate what God will do in their lives! You are amazing!

I would keep that note forever and pull it out whenever I got discouraged.

This brought tears to my eyes. What a blessing to hear after so many years! I'm sure this was not the only student touched and influenced by Steve's kindness.
