This testimonial was shared by Samantha Rittinger about Wayne Yerxa, a professor at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. 

Professor Yerxa not only has a passion for teaching business, but he has a passion for each person's life he teaches. He went above and beyond his every day teaching job to encourage and build his students up personally when it was needed the most. It was such a great feeling knowing that someone cared. He would take the time each day to let us know WE mattered. Professor Yerxa always started and greeted his class with one important comment that I will never forget, "Has anybody told you yet today that you are loved? If not, let me be the first. God loves you and so do I." Thank you Professor Yerxa for caring and changing lives.
