GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 21, 2019) – Charles Lacey will join the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Division of Mathematical Sciences in the College of Arts and Science.

“We are very pleased that Charles is joining our mathematical science department, said Dr. Renae Wentworth, dean of the College of Arts and Science at BJU. “Students will greatly benefit from his knowledge of statistics and its applications across a wide variety of disciplines.”

Lacey earned a BS in mathematics (2016) and a MS in statistical computing (2018) from the University of Central Florida (UCF). He will be teaching algebra, statistics, and computer science courses and laboratories.

For six years, Lacey served as an instructional assistant at Lake Sumter State College. His duties included onboarding new staff members, facilitating group and individual tutoring and monitoring testing. During his graduate studies at UCF, he worked as a graduate teaching associate for a statistics course and coordinated media presentations for department events.

“I am excited about the opportunity to teach at Bob Jones University. It has been exciting to watch the Lord open doors and direct me to Greenville. I am grateful for the privilege to work with students at BJU and learn from the faculty in the mathematics department,” said Lacey. “My goal is to help students understand and utilize statistical data in the business world as well as learn how to serve the Lord as good stewards of the data they’re given.”

Before moving to Greenville, Lacey attended Calvary Baptist Church in Winter Garden, Florida, where he was involved in the audio/visual ministry and sports outreach programs. This summer, he served as a sound engineer for the Merrill Evangelistic Team.
