Founders Day 2021

The Heritage Christian University Founders Medal was inaugurated in 2018 as part of the celebration of HCU’s fiftieth year. Each year, during the Founders Ceremony (held the week of March 9) ten medals will be awarded.

Heritage Christian University will host both the fourth and fifth annual Founders Ceremonies on Wednesday, March 9, 2022. The fourth annual Founders Ceremony will recognize the 2021 medal recipients at 10:00 a.m. The fifth annual Founders Ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. and will recognize the 2022 medal recipients. At each ceremony, ten unsung and under-appreciated heroes who have extended noble service to the church and/or to our broader community will be honored. Each recipient will be awarded the gold Founders Medallion.

The 2021 Founders Medallion recipients are…
