Heritage Christian University is excited to welcome Jeanne Foust as part of our full-time faculty beginning this July. Jeanne will join HCU as an Instructor of English and will teach undergraduate courses in English Composition and Literature. Also, she will teach various humanities courses that explore the intersection between literary themes and life. Beyond the classroom, she will help HCU engage student learning and development by inaugurating centers for writing and career services.

While this role is new, Jeanne has been an adjunct instructor of English for HCU for the past decade. An alumna of the University of Alabama, Jeanne has taught English at Mars Hill Bible School for the past twenty years. She and her husband, Kevin, have two grown daughters, Hannah and Abby, and they added a son-in-law, Braden, last May. They are active members of Cross Point Church of Christ, where Kevin is an elder. “I am honored to work alongside our impressive faculty and staff, to continue the rich legacy of HCU, and to carry out our mission of training ministers, missionaries, and more for Kingdom service,” said Foust.

Jeanne comes to HCU with a wealth of experience in secondary and higher education. After teaching at schools in our area for the past several years and emerging as a perennial favorite of students and colleagues, her skill in the classroom is no secret. According to Dr. Nathan Daily, HCU Vice President of Academics, Jeanne’s skills and experience make her an ideal addition to the HCU Faculty. “Displaying a heart for learning through her curiosity toward the modes and values of education and evaluation, Jeanne’s students invariably exist to learn. As HCU’s faculty aspires toward the integration of scholarship with the life of faith, we not only recognize Jeanne shares this aspiration but that she diversifies and broadens the potential of our community through her study of the literatures of humanity and her pedagogical commitment in service of student formation.”

Join us in giving Jeanne a warm welcome to HCU!
