Biography and Professional Achievements

CCU's commitment to the integration of faith and learning truly sets it apart from other institutions. Growing up, Dr. Katherine Hyon didn't always feel like her faith was relevant to her love of literature and writing until she had a teacher who allowed her to explore those connections.

In 2011, Hyon received an invitation from Kennesaw State University to attend the President's 4.0 Luncheon, where 4.0 students are honored and recognize one faculty member whom they believe contributed greatly to their success.
