Emeritus Professor of Leadership and Missions at Harding University, USA, Professor Evertt Huffard challenged students to look beyond graduation and focus on maturing everything their being.
Prof Huffard was speaking at the 6th Matriculation of Heritage Christian College (HCC), an accredited university in Amasaman-Accra affiliated with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Speaking on the theme “The Value of a Christian University Education”, Prof.
Huffard noted, “Making the choice to attend HCC and continuing to decide to stay until successful fourth year will begin with the realization that you have come here to gain more than knowledge and a degree. Your success here depends on your desire to grow and become the person God has given you the potential to become – spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually.
It is the path to the greatest human potential that will exceed your highest expectations. On this day of registration, also decide to do all you can to multiply the gift that God puts in your life today.
Professor Evertt Huffuard instructed students to “regard these four years as a gift from God to double your relationship skills, skills, knowledge and spiritual gifts. It will bring you and all who serve in this school joy to see you on graduation day. Our shared Christian values will bring even greater joy to our Creator if your transformation to HCC leads to a time when God will evaluate the path you have taken, the sacrifices you have made, the values you have incorporated into your life for you. say “Bravo, good and faithful servant.

University President Dr. Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah said, “What sets Heritage Christian College apart is the fact that we are primarily defined by the mission of Christ which seeks to transform the spiritual and physical aspects of human life to the glory of God. Here at HCC, the teaching, learning and lifestyle of all constituents – especially faculty, staff and students – are inspired, guided and carried out in accordance with the mission of Christ. Our philosophy of education is therefore based on the emulation of distinctive Christian values, such as respect for authority, discipline, integrity and compassion.
He observed that “Over the past three years, we have produced ethical and enterprising graduates who we believe deploy fair and morally upright means to bring creative solutions to problems in their spheres of practice. I was particularly touched by an assessment made by the supervisor of one of our recent graduates who is doing his national service duties in one of the reputable banks in Accra.
According to her, the stellar performance and excellent professional etiquette exhibited by this graduate in question made him a talking point at the executive level; and the best part is that he already has a contract with the bank – pending the end of his national service. I have no doubt that in a few years to come, HCC graduates would be the most sought after human resource for organizations both inside and outside the country.
