    There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford. Here a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people. From the classrooms and laboratories to the artistic stages and athletic venues, the minds and souls of Samford people make the real difference. Samford people bring the best, they are demanding and compassionate, they know the importance of engaging the world with a faith that calls them to serve. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

    Monday Mission: 

  • January  26


    A senior at Samford, Jules Huff underwent surgery last week to allow one of her kidneys to be used to save the life of her uncle, who has a rare condition known as IGA nephropathy.  His kidney function was at five percent.   Jules discovered last semester that her kidneys were a perfect match, being tested and screened during the same days in which she was preparing for her senior recital.  By the way, the surgery has been deemed “very successful,” and Jules will be back at Samford this week, running a victory lap during her last semester of college.

    Jules said it best in a message to me last week:  “God is so very good!”   

    The world is better because of Jules Huff.
