Travelers Rest student receives Bob Jones University Partner Award

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Bob Jones University President Steve Pettit last week awarded Andrew Paquette, a senior Accounting major from Travelers Rest, the school's Partner Award.

One of six President's Club awards, the Partner Award is given to a student who has shown himself to be a partner with BJU in "the cause of training young people to serve the Lord by promoting or contributing to its programs in a self-sacrificing way."

Students are nominated for President's Club awards by faculty, staff and their peers, and a committee selects recipients from the nominations received. In addition to recognition in a President's Club chapel, recipients have their photo displayed in the university Student Center and enjoy dinner with the President.

Paquette was nominated by a fellow student for his ongoing ministry as a student participating in the mission of BJU.

"Andrew dedicated his college career here to partnering with BJU's mission: Build Faith. Challenge Potential. Follow Christ," the student wrote. "I only hope and pray that as I leave the University and enter the workforce after graduation, I would seek to mentor others beside me and carry a testimony that shines brightly for Christ as Andrew has."
