OCU graduate Annie Edmonds shares this update from the field:

I am currently working at New Beginnings Christian school  in Columbus Ohio, teaching first grade. There are countless times I refer back to my education while in the classroom. It is so encouraging to know that I still have a great support system at OCU, I know that if I ever needed anything they would be there in a heartbeat! I am thankful for each one of my professors that took time to help me achieve my goals and dreams!
