SFWBC Approved to Receive Title IV Student Aid

President, Rev. Nate Ange and College Dean, Dr. Danny Baer are pleased to announce that as of Friday, December 7, Southeastern Free Will Baptist College has been approved for Federal Aid. This means our students will be able to apply for aid under Title IV in the form of Pell Grants and student loans. It will take a few weeks to get all of the details worked out, so we hope to have our Virtual Student Aid Office available through our website around the first week of January for students to begin the application process. Students SHOULD NOT apply before notice is given that all is ready. Until then students are welcome to explore studentaid.ed.gov and fafsa.ed.gov to learn more about aid and the Title IV program. They can even go through a process to estimate how much financial aid they will receive.

Arron Howard Hired as Recruiter

The promotional office is pleased to announce the hiring of Arron Howard in the recruitment office.  Arron is from Erwin, Tennessee. He has served in the promotional department for two years as the sound technician for the Sounds of Praise Ensemble. As president of the student body for the second year in a row, Arron has gained respect from his peers.  Many of our churches have enjoyed Arron’s preaching ministry.

His duties will begin part-time in January and become full-time after his graduation in May. He is excited to begin recruiting students to the school he loves. If you know of an interested student prospect for Southeastern you may contact Arron at arron.howard@sfwbc.edu.


Year-End Fundraising Challenge

We are thrilled to announce an end-of-year challenge. Two donors have issued a matching grant challenge of $50,000 each. That’s right. If we can raise $100,000 by the end of the year, your gift will be matched by $100,000. We intend to designate $100,000 for student scholarships and $100,000 to the annual fund.
The lack of financial scholarship help for students continues to be one of our challenges in recruiting students. Many students would love to prepare for ministry at Southeastern, but they cannot afford it. Your gifts this Christmas season will help us recruit next year’s students.
Please consider a special year-end matching gift donation for Southeastern College. We need your help! We can now receive your gifts of highly appreciated stocks and bonds which you can donate tax-free. If you are not a 20/20 Vision Club Partner, please consider becoming one today.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Steve Berry at 919-365-7711 (work), 321-917-2376 (cell), or sberry@sfwbc.edu. Thanks for all you do to support Southeastern College!
