Following Davis’ remarks, FHU President David R. Shannon shared words of encouragement on social media. “Congratulations to our graduates! Just as with physical families, you leave home but don’t stop being family. So until the next time we see you, live for His glory! Second, I want to express deep appreciation to our faculty and staff for their selfless service and their genuine love for students and each other. Being among these students, faculty, staff, administration, board, alums, and friends is truly a blessing.”
