Since then, Laura has stepped into the role of Executive Assistant to the President. When asked how God has impacted her career, she stated, “God has always directed my career path in every way.

Why did you choose BPC?

Class of  ’16

Originally, I was accepted and committed to attend the University of Georgia. My best friend Taylor and I were going to be roommates there; but one day she asked me if I had prayed about where God wanted me to go to college. When I told her that I hadn’t, she encouraged me to take the next week to pray about God’s will over my college decision. After feeling like UGA wasn’t where God was leading me (a week before we were supposed to all leave for freshmen move-in), I assumed college just wasn’t in the plan for me that year.

Fortunately, I had another friend invite me to hang out with her that next weekend, and while I was with her she had to drop off some papers at her college, Brewton-Parker. When we arrived to campus, I immediately felt peace and knew that it was where I would be attending college.

Even though at the beginning BPC was not one of my college options, God’s sovereignty lead me to where I needed to be. I truly believe that praying and making the decision to attend BPC changed the entire course of my life. I am forever grateful to be a Baron!
