Homecoming NGU 2022

North Greenville University will honor outstanding graduates and welcome alumni and friends to campus during its 2022 Homecoming weekend Oct. 28-29.

“Homecoming is a huge part of the rhythm of life on a campus like NGU. It’s always wonderful to see people we recognize on this special weekend,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. “One of the fun parts of my job is running into people in the community who tell me they haven’t been back to campus in years—or even decades—and are coming back for Homecoming. It’s a joy to hear from them after their visit, to hear their excitement about what they’ve seen and their gratitude for what NGU has meant in their lives.”

Conservative parents can effectively change the state of education, but not how you might think.

Is Running for School Boards a Waste of Time

Many more parents are waking up to the abject failure of the American public school system and are becoming desperate to take action to protect their children. The threats to their children’s well-being include vaccination mandates, dangerous ideologies, a failure to teach students basic writing and math skills, an obscene and unsafe sex education curriculum, allowing trans boys to use girls’ bathrooms, and the list keeps growing. Some are calling this the “Mama Bear Revolution.” Bravo, Momma Bears!

In recent days, a Vermont high school soccer coach and parent was fired for using male pronouns in reference to a biologically male trans-identifying student who watched his daughter change in the girls’ locker room, and a Pennsylvania school was found to be instructing teachers to hide the preferred names and pronouns of trans-identifying students from their parents. The incidents are the latest in an escalating clash between school administrators and parents over the transgender issue that is spilling into the voting booth.
