7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

With the 2016-2017 school year upon us, preparing our students to start off strong is a necessity that must not be overlooked. School supplies and school clothes are definitely great but if we neglect to help our students become more self-aware, we'll be making a tragic mistake. Business genius, Gary Vaynerchuk says, "Self-Awareness is the game...when you know yourself, you win". I like to say, "When you know yourself, success is more easily attained. As the father of a 1st grader, 8th grader and 9th grader, I desire for my children to be successful. As the oldest of 7 brothers and sisters, I want my younger siblings to be successful. As a #StudentSuccessCoach of 15 years, it is a need for me to see our students start this year off with more confidence than ever before and be extremely successful.

William Jessup University Gives Back to Promote Church Growth, Student Scholarships

William Jessup University Gives Back to Promote Church Growth, Student Scholarships

ROCKLIN, Calif. – William Jessup University, the greater Sacramento region’s only residential four-year university, recently presented Stadia, one of the largest church planting organizations in the world, a check for $40,000.

The growing university welcomed Stadia’s President, Greg Nettle, who addressed the WJU student body during the memorable chapel service.

“I’m thankful for our partnership in church planting because throughout the United States and around the world, the fact remains the same that new church planting is the single most effective way for reaching people who are far away from Jesus,” Nettle said.

Demonstrating Jessup’s mission to partner with the church, President John Jackson and Director of Church Relations, Jim Jessup proudly presented Nettle the check. The gift represents 5 percent of the funds received by WJU resulting from the closure of a former partner church.
