Adam Cook '18
From a young age Adam was always fascinated by the science of the human body. For as long as he can remember he wanted to pursue some sort of career in medicine. It was during his senior of high school at Greater Beckley Christian, that he went on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic which in result allowed him to focus on pursuing medical school. However, to make it to medical school, Adam knew he needed a firm undergraduate education for his foundation. He loved the class sizes at Concord University as well as the proximity to his hometown of Bradley, WV. Adam was aware of Concord’s excellent reputation for pre-requisite classes for medical school and four years later, he earned his Bachelor of Science and graduated Cum Laude. Adam is now in medical school pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. Adam was aware of Concord’s excellent reputation for pre-requisite classes for medical school. It Starts With You.

Director of Bonner Scholars Program
“Concord has not only provided me with an education and employment, but also with friends and mentors and the opportunity to connect with some amazing students.”
As the director of the Bonner Scholars Program, Kathy helps support scholars by distributing scholarship funds, teaching life skills like goal setting, time management, and budgeting, and even providing emotional support if needed. Kathy says the goal of the program is to do everything within their power to help each individual student in the program successfully complete their degree. But also, she hopes that as scholars leave Concord, they become good citizens who engage with their community and continue to serve long after their Bonner days.
