Thank you for joining us on this brief overview of 2022—a recalling of just a sampling of the many ways that God is shaping lives for His service through Patrick Henry College. This is part three which shares the final 5 highlights from the year. Praise God for all that he is doing through Patrick Henry College. Enjoy!
1. PHC Receives ACTA "A" Rating
Patrick Henry College's academic program ranks highest among Protestant colleges in the nation, recently earning a prestigious ACTA “A” rating and a 100% grade from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni's (ACTA) "What Will They Learn?" (WWTL) project.
2. PHC hosts nationally-syndicated Fox & Friends for a Town Hall event with Ainsley Earhardt
On October 13 and 14, the Fox News Network in Washington, D.C. came to Patrick Henry College's campus to broadcast a town hall on education and parental rights to be viewed by 1.4M Americans.
A Fox crew, of approximately 12 in number, pulled off the broadcast with 10 panelists from Loudoun and surrounding counties. PHC's Hope Rawlson, Faith Jones, and Grace Torgerson got an up-close experience behind-the-scenes and some one-on-three time with the co-host of the show in exchange for their servanthood that morning.

3. PHC's Theater Group, Eden Troupe, is Alive and Thriving
PHC Junior Anna Fox, a Literature major and Pride and Prejudice co-director, wrote the script for the play. She found that most scripts available were "weirdly modernized," crude, or omitted iconic lines from the book. She wants her script to stay true to Austen's work and bring all its drama and humor to life.
"We want it to be an uproarious time," Fox said. Read the rest of the story here.
4. PHC Alumni Project Wins $100,000 Innovation Prize for Alliance Defending Freedom
Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) Viewpoint Diversity Score initiative, a project spearheaded by PHC alumni and current students, won the Heritage Foundation’s inaugural Innovation Prize last month. The prize, a $100,000 grant, is awarded to conservative initiatives working to protect American freedom with innovate solutions.
5. The mayor of Purcellville, VA, recognizes PHC in a recent proclamation
Mayor Fraser of Purcellville, VA (PHC's hometown) invited President Haye to a town council meeting to be recognized in a proclamation for having recently earned the best possible review of its curriculum by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA).

Remembering the Life (and Light) of Carrie Durning, Class of 2020
It's with a heavy heart that we remember and honor the life of Carrie Durning. Carrie graduated from Patrick Henry College with a degree in Journalism in 2020. Today, at the age of 24, she is in the presence of the Lord.
Carrie was very gifted in photography and digital media. She loved the Lord, committed herself to bringing him glory, and had a missional heart to reach the lost with the hope that is only found in Jesus Christ. Anyone who knew Carrie knows that she was always smiling, laughing, and looking for ways to bring joy to others. Carrie, thank you for enriching our lives.
