Dr. Cedrick Valrie “knowns as VALRIE by his students” was born and raised in the inner city of Alabama, where he learned the value of hard work, perseverance, and humility. He was raised by a village filled with strong faith, and this played a significant role in shaping his worldview and his desire to make a lasting imprint on others in the community.

Valrie finds great joy working in higher education. He is known for his fervent spirit, his love for teaching and mentoring, and his unwavering commitment in helping students. Under his leadership, students gain practical life skills and clarity concerning their calling to be effective in the local church and the marketplace.

As an ordained minister, he continues to inspire and engage the Body of Christ to seek inner healing, grow in grace and truth, and celebrate all wins big or small.

Cedrick and his wife, Sarah, have four children.
