Shemekka Anderson, Admission Counselor

B.A. - Jackson State University
M.A. - Liberty University

What if we dared to believe in the unfolding of our lives and that everything conspires to guide us exactly where we are supposed to be? What if every experience is preparing us for what's to come? What if the lives we are meant to change are waiting for us to believe in ourselves and take a leap of faith?

Every day that I get to encourage potential students to take that leap is an honor. My greatest joy comes from inspiring others to dream, take risk, and enjoy every moment because the door will open for those who are brave enough to knock.

1 Peter 1:8-9 - Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.

Having the opportunity to encourage and inspire potential students in their academic journey is both rewarding and humbling.  I am thrilled to be a part of Belhaven University and have the chance to live out its mission by serving and supporting you in your educational and spiritual journey, as you allow God to lead in His perfect plan for you.

It is my desire, as you take this next step, to assist you as you explore options and possibilities that will enhance not only your educational and professional goals, but enrich your spiritual walk with God, as well. 

Colossians 3:23-24 - Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.  (NIV)

Throughout life, there are many seasons of growth and change. This is especially true when a student decides to pursue their degree; because of this, students need to be served holistically while on their educational journey so that they can learn how to become servant leaders, themselves. I am excited to provide this holistic service by being one of the pillars of support for each student. I am able to be this pillar of support as I provide an environment of Christ-centered unconditional positive regard from the very first contact with a student. This environment allows students to feel comforted, and safe; because of this, my students can grow academically, spiritually, personally, and professionally during their season at Belhaven University.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 - There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

I have worked in higher education for over 13 years. Every day has been exciting and rewarding. I have a heart and passion for reaching students where they are and helping them to set and achieve their goals. I had a desire to join the staff of Belhaven University because of the school’s emphasis on service and leadership and its focus on the integration of faith and learning. I knew that working here would not only give me the opportunity to do what I love to do, but it would also help me to grow spiritually. I am passionate about lifelong learning in any form, and investing in others by helping them to develop holistically.

Michael JordanSenior Student Services Counselor

B.B.A – Belhaven University
M.B.A. – William Carey University

I remember my time as an undergraduate business major fondly, but one of the most important reasons for returning to serve as a student services counselor is that the tenets of Belhaven align with those I value in my own life: faith, family, and service. Iam blessed to be part of the student services team and to be surrounded by others who have servants’ hearts.

By nature, I am an optimistic person. Each time I interact with the students—whether in the office or in the classroom— I leave the encounter with even more optimism! I have been given the opportunity to assist Christ-like people in both their educational and spiritual journeys and believe they will make a difference in the future of the world.

Matthew 6:33 - But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
