Student Eagle Leadership Conference 2023

Eagle Forum and Leadership Institute are proud to announce the Third Annual STUDENT EAGLE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE in Washington D.C. on June 6-11, 2023.

We will be gathering in person at the Leadership Institute for four days of unparalleled political activist training during the evenings, and touring our beautiful national capital during the day.

Because we are staying in the dormitory at Leadership Institute, we are limited on the number of students who will be allowed to attend this year. We will only have space for 20 young men, and 20 young women. In order to determine who will get to join us for this very exclusive event, students will need to submit a qualifying project (see below for details).

NGU Baseball Feature
NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr., (left) and CSU President Dr. Dondi E. Costin (right) unite to cheer for their students competing for the Czech Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

When the World Baseball Classic begins March 8, the global tournament will feature 600 players on teams representing 20 nations, including a bevy of Major League Baseball stars, and two standouts currently playing for South Carolina Baptist universities.

North Greenville University’s Marek Chlup and Charleston Southern University’s Daniel Padysak are members of the Czech Republic’s team which starts play in the Tokyo Dome on March 9. They are in a five-team pool which could well put Chlup, 2022 Conference Carolinas Player of the Year, in the batter’s box versus MLB superstar Shohei Ohtani. Or Padysak, a right-handed pitcher, could be on the mound versus the Japanese phenom.

NGU Beam 2

Celebrating the transformation of North Greenville University’s historic administration building into a new home for the College of Business and Entrepreneurship (COBE) and senior executive offices, the NGU community left its mark on the Donnan/COBE Project last Thursday afternoon, participating in a prayer and dedication ceremony on the Tigerville campus. 

NGU students, faculty, staff, donors, and board members had the opportunity to permanently inscribe their names, prayers, and scriptures on an 18-foot steel beam that will be used to complete the $9.7 Million Donnan/COBE Project. The university’s administration building was first opened in 1955.

School Enrollment Numbers Continue to Fall

"Where did all of the children go?" asks a headline in the St Louis Post-Dispatch (2/19/2023). The Covid pandemic is over, yet students have not returned to the public schools. Some school districts in the St. Louis region have 10 percent fewer students than they had in 2019. Nationally, more than 1.5 million students have left public education since the pandemic.

Usually, when a business loses customers, the business tries to figure out how to make its offerings more attractive to reach new customers. They lower their prices or they increase the quality of the merchandise. If the business is losing money, then they cut expenses and lay off workers.
