In November, Alex Wann, a 2010 graduate of ACU’s A&E Department, was called to help with disaster relief after super typhoon Yolando hit the Philippines. Wann has been working with Samaritan’s Purse in Bolivia with water quality.
Wann worked at the Samaritan’s Purse base in Tacloban City, which was hit very hard by the storm. His work included water, sanitation and hygiene, but focused on sanitation. Wann said “these kinds of interventions are critical in the aftermath of such a disaster to prevent the spread of disease.” Wann said the work would be intense and communication would be scarce, but he was excited to see what God would do through this situation.

From there the bright minds in our department came up with the idea to theme our float after one of the hottest (and hairiest) topics in pop culture today: Duck Dynasty. Kayla Hanning, a Freshman Animal Science major, is credited with coming up with this brilliant idea. Kayla said when she heard of the ACU Dynasty theme she thought “Who better to do Duck Dynasty than Ag?” Kayla watches the show almost every week and her favorite character is Mrs. Kay. More »

Exceptional. Innovative. Real. That is ACU’s motto and here in the A&E Department we are contributing to that way of thinking.
