Rachel Witt ('13) was able to merge two important parts of her life together at Emory & Henry College - faith and music. As a religion major, Witt studied under some of the best religion professors around, gaining knowledge from their individual style and strengths. Now attending Duke Divinity, Witt points toward Emory & Henry's small class sizes and the strength of the College's spiritual life program as keys to her success. Through programs like the brass ensemble, Witt was able to travel to China to perform and experience the joys of study abroad.

Wil Cantrell ('01) is the pastor at Lebanon United Methodist Church in Lebanon, Va. While at Emory & Henry, Wil was taught how to ask the right questions of his congregation, and how to serve their needs. Through unique outreaches like the Recovery Program, Wil is able to help his region address the growing problem of substance abuse and addiction. Emory & Henry College taught him that you can make a difference if you are willing to listen.
