I grew up hating Harding! Why? Cause others said it kept certain things from coming to Searcy. Fast forward 10 years. I decided to go to college & didn't want to leave Searcy, so I went to Harding. I'm not Church of Christ either. Anyway I got to see the school from their point of view and hear Dr. Burks speak at chapel every morning . I see the changes and the growing Harding has done since 2002. The Guy is someone I truely admire and the city of Searcy & Harding has never blended well together and that's a shame. He's the Steve Jobs of Harding University! Wont be the same without him there. Just hope it gets turned over to good hands!( Brian Burks/college of business Dean at Harding!) Yeah I understand ill get haters on here. That's fine. I was a hater once too!

David Burks is a holy man. I love him. Has built Harding up and grown its presence and power all over town. People seek his advice on all matters both political and spiritual.
