ALLEN CHEEK ‘13 DIRECTOR OF LEARNING OPERATIONS & ADMINISTRATION COX COMMUNICATIONS • VIRGINIA

I was amazed at how much I was able to apply to the work sector. It was these true, real-life scenarios that allowed me to grow and expand at Cox.

For Allen Cheek, one of his favorite aspects of work and life is to inspire and motivate others to do and be their best. “At Cox, we put a lot into mentoring relationships, and that’s something I value,” he says. Encouragement from his own mentor at Cox led him to pursue his MBA. Regent’s

location, flexibility and commitment to training students through real-world workplace scenarios made his decision easy. “I was amazed at how much I was able to apply to the work sector. It wasn’t just this academic textbook, it was true scenarios that I practice here, and that

allowed me to be able to grow and expand at Cox.” Allen now mentors others throughout Cox to become lifelong learners — always evolving, improving and fostering innovative ideas with the goal of building a better future for the next generation.

DR. JASON CARTHEN ‘09 FOUNDER AND CEO JASON CARTHEN ENTERPRISES 2019 REGENT ALUMNUS OF THE YEAR

When I think about Christian leadership, I think about the examples I saw throughout my time at Regent. The Ph.D. program was tough, but there was a transformation that took place in my life because of the type of leadership I was under.

Dr. Jason Carthen’s resume is notable: NFL linebacker, entrepreneur, radio host, bestselling author, motivational speaker, and doctoral learner. “I didn’t know I would have this type of success. I was just trying to make it day to day.

As I began to develop a pattern of resilience, I realized everything was going to work out,” Jason explains. “You’ve got to have a very intense focus. That is what allowed me to continue moving forward in leadership.” He says there were difficulties

along the way, professionally and personally. But his faith in God and desire to live out his purpose  is what led him to  earn his doctorate in organizational leadership at Regent: “The program transformed me. I knew I was born to change the world.”
