    Alumni Spotlight

    Renee Patton (’18)
    As a mother of three college students, Renee Patton (’18) has experienced what most adult learners face—the challenge of juggling life, work, and family while pursuing personal educational goals. Renee began by transferring her existing college credits into MBU’s Interdisciplinary Studies program, completing an accredited bachelor’s in a year and a half while simultaneously earning graduate credits toward a master’s. Eight additional months of hard work resulted in the final credits needed to finish a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning. Renee chose History and English concentrations and is now qualified to teach at the collegiate level. She shares, “I am thankful to the Lord, MBU, and the faculty for helping me pursue my heart’s desire.” She encourages others to “know what you want to do, ask the Lord for clear guidance, and then go for it.”
