Austin Briehl '08, Madison (Schwan) Briehl '09
Austin is a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, while Madison is super-mom raising the couple's two--soon to be three--children!
“NDP laid the moral foundation that would pave a narrow road, ultimately leading us back to one another. Separated by 725 miles with myself at the United States Air Force Academy (’13) and Madison at Texas Christian University (’12), we sought to continue to develop our whole person: mind, body, and soul. Nearly 7 years later, the two of us, who sported purple and gold in North Scottsdale, crossed paths, yet again. With a shared set of values instilled by NDP, we experienced “love at 2nd sight”. Now, 13 years later, after nearly 5 years of marriage, I am a Captain in the United States Air Force preparing for my 3rd deployment; while Madison is busy raising our two daughters, Scarlett & Vivienne. Our family will be expanding as we will soon welcome a son in April 2022! We love NDP because this private institution bequeathed an unshakeable faith and a pursuit of holiness that has set the course for the rest of our adult lives."
