Three-time Dove Award nominee Sara Groves was recently recognized by the Alumni Board from Evangel University for her significant achievements in the few years since her graduation.  Honored with the "Outstanding Young Alumnus Award" Groves received the award as an alumni who has made contributions to society within a short period after her graduation.  In 1994, Sara received her Bachelors of Science in History and English from this private Christian university in Springfield, Missouri.

"So much of my life and music reflect the principles and passions I found at Evangel," states Sara.  "From the day I was born, my dad (Dwight Colbaugh) has engaged me in a conversation about what it means to take on the very worldview of Jesus Christ.  These and others still inspire me ten years later, and will inspire me for years to come to integrate my faith and life, and to live out the kingdom dream."  

Groves performed for the Evangel University Homecoming event on October 9, 2004.  Along with her performance, the keynote speaker was United States Attorney General John Ashcroft.  Ashcroft has ties to this university as he is the son of the university's second president, the late Dr. J. Robert Ashcroft, who served from 1958-1974.    

Sara Groves second single from her recent project, The Other Side of Something, has been released to radio. Compelled is charting in the Top 15 on the Adult Contemporary chart and in the Top 10 on the Inspirational chart following the first single, The One Thing I know.
