It’s my honor to announce that Dr. Tom Mach has been unanimously appointed as our new Vice President for Academics effective July 1, 2017. Dr. Mach has served faithfully at Cedarville for 17 years in various academic roles, most recently as Assistant Vice President for Academics and Chair of the Department of History and Government. He will replace Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Loren Reno, who desired to dedicate more time to his family, but plans to continue serving at Cedarville as a special adviser to myself and as a Professor of Management. I am blessed to serve with both of these godly men who bring wisdom, humility, and experience to their leadership roles.
Junior Dan Michalski became Cedarville’s first NCAA Division II men’s track & field champion with his victory in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the outdoor track & field championships in May. Junior Carsyn Koch defended her 800-meter title in the women’s championshiop, and senior Olivia Esbenshade placed third in the women’s 1,500-meter race, earning All-American honors. As notable as these accomplishments are, I’m even more proud of the way our athletes bring glory to King Jesus in all they do.
Cedarville Magazine’s summer issue – “Desire the Prize” – is now available online. This issue is dedicated to athletics at Cedarville.
Sports have always been a big part of my life, and I love to watch our Yellow Jackets play. While I’m proud of our athletes’ success on the field, court, or track, what I hope you see more than anything as you read this issue online is that they desire to honor Christ with everything they do, including their sport.
I’m always inspired by the incredible vocal talent, musicianship, and creativity of our students. At no other event is that more on display than Elliv, our annual variety show that spotlights the skills and abilities, not only of our music and theatre majors, but of students from all disciplines across campus. I hope you enjoy these highlights from this year’s Elliv on video as much as I did in person April 29.
