Mrs. Janene Bryson (Jennings), 1971-75, worked as a nurse in various capacities following her time at Southern Wesleyan. With a deep family commitment to Wesleyan education including a father, Lowell Jennings, who served as chair of the SWU Board of Trustees for decades, Janene’s path to Southern Wesleyan was clear. As a student, she was able to continue friendships from her youth group from Gastonia Wesleyan and create even more. When asked why she gives to SWU Janene said, “I mentioned the Christian higher education legacy and I caught that vision from my parents. I was so happy with my time there and thrilled with my sons’ time there. Life is hard no matter when or where you are living it, but I have found it easier when you are surrounded by Christian friends and family.” You can be a part of the SWU Legacy by joining with us during this week of giving to raise $45,000 for student scholarships.
