We expect many great things for her in the future. A scripture that describes her is Proverbs 24: 15-16, “Lie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous; do no violence to his home; for the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.” Lisette is a tenacious leader in everything she does, and even in her falls and failures, she strives for excellence and fights for her team. Finally, Ms. Whiteside is a student who is driven, self-motivated, reliable, dependable, and capable of anything she puts her mind and heart into pursuing. She is passionate about Jesus and helping others. She will be missed in the department, but we are excited to unleash her onto the world, though we will be keeping her here for a time in the admissions department.

We pray and know you will reach the goals!

Lisette’s name is already engraved on the perpetual plaque hanging in the Business Department honor hall. Our department wishes you the very best for a bright and prosperous future in business. Congratulations!
