GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 15, 2023) – Nate Cary joined the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an instructor in the School of Fine Arts and Communication.

Cary earned a BA in print journalism from Bob Jones University. 

He worked with The Greenville News for two years investigating the system of civil asset forfeiture in South Carolina which became a series of stories known as TAKEN. For his work on TAKEN, Cary earned the 2020 Best of Gannett First Place Award for Public Service, the National 2019 Eppy Award from Editor & Publisher Magazine for Best Community Service, and the 2019 John Jay/H.F.

“I am thrilled to welcome Nate to our Division of Communication faculty. He brings with him a successful journalism career with expertise across various reporting domains, notably as a nationally award-winning investigative reporter,” said Dr. Mary Mendoza, Division of Communication chair. “Nate’s extensive experience in journalism will undoubtedly enrich our classroom environment. Beyond his role as an educator, we are excited to have him as the faculty advisor for The Collegian, our student-run campus newspaper. His passion and dedication to using his talents to convey stories rooted in truth are truly commendable.”

This academic year, Cary will be teaching Expository Writing, Media Writing, and The Digital Newsroom.

“I am thrilled for God’s clear direction in leading me to join the faculty at Bob Jones University and for the opportunity to mentor students to think critically, report fairly, and write well while grounded in a Biblical worldview,” said Cary. “I’m excited about the chance to add my professional experience as a reporter to the multimedia journalism program and to guide students as they pursue careers as Christians in mass communication.” 

Cary and his wife, Jessica, have been married for 16 years and have four children.
