The frame of a new house on which Monroe had been working at a Gilbert construction site had fallen, crushing his shoulder, breaking his back and leaving him in the hospital for a month.

The 38-year-old senior also is president of GCU’s new Canyon Counselors club. “I love all my teachers,” he said. “They’re very professional, they have a lot of knowledge in their fields, they have good teaching skills and they’re available. They try to help us get […]
