King University News :: Alumni & Friends Make a Difference

When he first came to King, Wesley Houser loved the atmosphere that permeated the entire campus. You know when something is a good fit, and King just fit perfectly.

Houser, a junior at King slated for graduation in the spring of 2013, graduated from South-Doyle High School in Knoxville, Tenn., in 2009. He became aware of King through his high school baseball coach, Robby Howard, and a close friend who was already attending King.

Despite an injury during his senior year high school, Houser's talent on the baseball diamond captured the attention of former head coach of the Tornado baseball team, Coach Dave Rutherford.

In addition to the athletic scholarship for baseball that he received, Houser also received financial assistance through King's Alumni Friends scholarship fund. Having alumni and friends, who are so helpful and so willing to give, has allowed me to realize my dream of attending King, said Houser.

Houser has not only shown diligence on the field, but also in the classroom. He is currently studying mathematics and plans to attend graduate school after receiving his degree from King. His hope is to become a structural engineer in his hometown of Knoxville.
