Scott Hardaway has announced (on Facebook) his engagement to Noel Marquard. Noel teaches second grade at Chandler Christian Academy in Chandler, Ariz. Her teaching also experience includes four years in Senegal, West Africa.
Scott served 12 years as pastor of Pathway UB church in Jackson, Mich. His first wife, Tanya, died of cancer in October 2012, and the following year Scott stepped away from the pastorate in order to raise his two sons. He wrote at the time, “I’ve never met a pastor who was a single parent. Now I know why. I’m not saying it can’t be done, but I am saying I can’t do it.”
We rejoice with Scott, and Noel, as they begin this new chapter in their lives.
