Partners Program Spotlight: Apothem
Partnership with Common Goals – Excellence In Servant Leadership
by Eric Miller
When learning of the Business Partner program at Ad Fontes Academy last year, Apothem was led to serve as the inaugural lead business partner and investor in Ad Fontes Academy. We see Ad Fontes as a unique K-12 school that embodies our vision at Apothem – acting as servant leaders who seek excellence – Arête – in all we do, for the good of others not ourselves.
Apothem Innovative Solutions Group brings together skillsets from multiple national security disciplines, forming a team of seasoned professionals capable of developing innovative solutions to complex issues facing our nation and those entrusted to preserving and protecting the national security. This line of work demands loyalty, service, humility, integrity, honesty and trustworthiness, as we humbly serve those who have answered the call of a nation. Striving to be servant leaders, we work diligently to bring our clients success by leveraging our skills and knowledge in an honest and ethical manner, through application of critical thinking to get at the root of a problem and arrive at a solution. Ad Fontes uniquely cultivates in young people these same character qualities of faith, humility, excellence, critical thinking, and integrity.
Founded in December 2000, Apothem started off as a consulting firm developing and implementing technology logistics and HIPAA data encryption solutions for clients in the healthcare support services industry. In 2005, Apothem shifted into IT management and information security, and developed further into our current role of specialized National Industrial Security Program (NISP) consultants, supporting clients in the spheres of defense, intelligence, energy and homeland security.
We are committed to “leading the charge” on getting other like-minded business owners to help this Christ-centered educational institution not only succeed, but thrive. We commit our support to the Partners program as an expression of thanks to the Lord for His divine love for us to the point of sacrificing His only Son as atonement for our sins, that we may be saved.
As stewards of the Lord’s bountiful blessings to us, we look to Paul’s 2nd letter to the Christians at Corinth when considering how we give thanks to the Lord for the gifts He has so graciously bestowed upon us:
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver… You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, 11
We encourage you to join us as an Ad Fontes Business Partner, helping equip the next generation of servant leaders.
