My wife, Kristi, and I met at Emmanuel College in 2005 though Emmanuel Singers. We became great friends and have been together since. Kristi and I were married in July 10, 2010. We exchanged vows in the Franklin Springs PHC, where I serve as the associate pastor. Rev. Harrison Lampley (pastor of the FSPHC) conducted the ceremony together with my father, Rev. Alvaro Castro. The reception was held at the John W. Swails Center on the campus of Emmanuel College. We were surrounded by our church, family and friends.
A lot has happened since my last real visit to EC. My sister’s wedding was the last time I saw many of my friends and classmates. Since then, I have joined the U.S. Army, graduated basic training at the top of my class, and am now in the process of becoming an intelligence analyst. While I was at basic training, my wife and I welcomed our first son into this world, Balian Alexander Hershman. I can’t wait to come back to EC and visit and introduce my son to my school and professors.
I attended Emmanuel College from 2001-2003, receiving my A.A. before transferring to Georgia Southern. Since graduation from EC, I completed my B.S. at Georgia Southern in 2004. After graduation, I took a special events position in Madison, Ga. In 2006 I returned to Georgia Southern to complete a master’s degree in information systems. This time I stayed on full-time in a special events position within the Division of Student Affairs. In August of this year, I was promoted to assistant director for Marketing and Communications.
