“The Stover Program aims to arm the next generation’s leaders with the intellect and skills we need to take a stand for what is right, and I am proud to be apart of it.”

“Entering the Stover Program, I am eager to open my horizon to all the structures that mold our current political society. In our modern world, Christian values are becoming less and less acknowledged in our politics. Because of this, I appreciate the opportunity to group together to discuss how we can show our Christian morals in our present-day community. As a Nursing student, I find interest in how health care and politics overlap. This opportunity will give me the chance to conduct moral leadership in my career. The Stover Program is giving me the ability to grow in my knowledge, participate in seminars, and meet important government officials. It is exciting to take an active role in Waynesburg’s Stover program and I am grateful for the opportunity.”

“The Stover Program has already had a profound and inspirational impact on my life. When I first learned about the Stover Program, I was moved to not just learn more about the current issues in the world around me, but also to get involved in the active discussions relating to our society today. It is refreshing to see people that truly care about the welfare of our nation and like-minded young adults wrestling with current issues in a positive way. When I first met the Stover Scholars, I was met with an extreme sense of family and comradery I did not expect from a group I had never met. The support given from everyone involved in the program is unmatched in any experience I have ever participated in. I look forward to working with the Stover Program throughout the remainder of my time at Waynesburg University and watching it grow and succeed the way it has with classes before myself.”

“To me, the Stover Program is an opportunity for bright students to learn more about the Constitution and the law in a more moral religious setting.  Through guest speakers and unique experiences, the Stover Scholars are taught how to bring their morals and values into the public square.”

“Being selected as a member of the Stover program is helping not only me at Waynesburg, but it is preparing me for the world beyond the University. The Stover Center helps turn members into a stronger group of leaders to become a positive influence for the future of our nation.”

“The Stover Program will be the most significant stepping stone towards pursuing my career and passion of politics.  As a Stover Scholar, I hope to greatly expand my knowledge and to hear from as many perspectives as possible–while maintaining my core values and beliefs.  I feel as though this program will push me to become a more well-rounded person, both morally and intellectually.”
