Dr. Jack Shock

There was this teacher at Harding University, Jack Shock, who taught me to love to learn, to challenge myself to dig deeper, to find humor and joy in each day, to intentionally argue both sides of a position to help discover the truth for myself, to favor the underdog, and to not only accept but to celebrate the messiness of life and friends and faith. Jack has this easy, deep, resonant laugh that I can still hear in my heart even though I’m far –in years and miles– from Harding. What a blessing for me and for so many others that there was– and still is–this teacher at Harding University.
