“I come from a place where darkness often times covers the brightness of life. There wasn’t much room for success back home, so I made a blind decision to come to Penn,” says Sociology Major Enrico Edwards. “If it wasn’t for William Penn, I couldn’t even tell you where I would be today. College saved my life.” He says that is was God’s plan for him to travel from Memphis, Tennessee to find his home here at William Penn University.
Enrico lost his best friend and grandfather, “I felt like nothing else mattered.” He received a Bible and says he gave his life to Christ. He found peace with God and came from being an ‘F’ student to obtaining all A’s.
