Archibold Marowa, or Archie as we have come to know him, is from Harare, Zimbabwe. He is the youngest of six children with four sisters and one brother. He graduated high school in Zimbabwe and then played soccer professionally for a few years. In 2008, Archie came to Henderson, Tennessee, to play soccer for the FHU Lions.
On the soccer field he was the team captain for three seasons. He was also recognized as a scholar athlete for his good work in the classroom. During his senior year, he received the “Heart of a Lion” award for demonstrating qualities of courage, determination, hard work, exemplary performance and service to others. He was also named Mr. FHU by the faculty and staff for best exemplifying the notable character and Christian values associated with Freed-Hardeman University. In December 2012, he graduated with his degree in Finance and is currently working toward his MBA in Leadership at Freed-Hardeman.
Archie says he is thankful to our donors for changing his life by their generosity. Archie received the Josh Riley Memorial Scholarship making it possible for him to get a Christian education at FHU.
