A Distinguished Display of Humility

When diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer in 2015, psychology professor Dr. Holly Brand had one thing on her mind: Her students. After working extra hours to record lectures in assuring her students’ success, Brand fought cancer for over a year, and she won.

Teaching her Advanced General Psychology class, Dr. Holly Brand explains the dos and don’ts of interviews. Brand underwent radiation every morning of the fall 2016 semester, followed by a full day of teaching at MBU. The incredible effort won her the respect of her students, and also the university’s Distinguished Faculty Member Award.

A Hero Without Superpowers

From “wrestling with sin and guilt and shame” to being saved by Christ and serving in Christian ministry, Aaron Lumpkin has settled in comfortably to his role as campus minister at Missouri Baptist University.

Sarah Dickey has anchored her corner of the main office in the Fine Arts Division for more than a decade, so any question about, well, just about anything, she is more than capable of answering.

Cold-Blooded Killer

Atomic bomb-era radiation has been found throughout St. Louis in recent years, and one area in particular, Coldwater Creek in North St. Louis County, has risen in attention to the point where an HBO documentary has been produced about this once seemingly innocent creek where adults now dealing with severe medical issues once played as children.
