On November 5-7, the Trevecca Nazarene University Trustees conducted their Fall meetings. The Board of Trustees meets twice a year, in the months of March and November. Representing the Southern Florida District as elected or at-large trustees were Dr. Brian Wilson (DS), Dr. Dennis Moore (who has been serving as the secretary of the board), Rev. Joey Brummett, and Rev. Pascal Permis. Mr. John K. Paul also serves as a trustee but was unable to be present at this session, as he and his wife have just welcomed their fourth child into their family. Our congratulations to the Pauls! The photograph accompanying this article shows our four SFD trustees during a visit to the gravesite of Dr. J. O. McClurkan, founder of Trevecca. Trevecca was founded in 1901.
The trustees are happy to report that Trevecca is experiencing very good days. The wooded campus was dressed in beautiful Fall colors and the property is something we can all be proud of. The spirit on campus among the students and faculty was very positive and upbeat, and the mission statement of the university A Christian community providing education for leadership and service is being fulfilled.
Along with good reports of the fiscal state of the university, three highlights of the meetings stand out: the report of record enrollment, the approval of the purchase of adjacent land and structures known as Volunteer Trucking, and the dedication of the Millard Reed Memorial Tower.
Treveccas President, Dr. Dan Boone, reported the following regarding enrollment: When students completed registration on September 1, Trevecca Nazarene University broke a 113-year enrollment record. The traditional undergraduate student population grew by 100 students (over last year) to 1,115. Critical to this success were two components: a 27% increase in enrollment of new students (freshmen and transfers) and outstanding retention of current students. In addition to setting records at the undergraduate level, Treveccas total student population exceeded 2,600 for the first time. The 2014 freshman class is the Universitys largest everbreaking a historical record of 269 freshmen set in Fall 2011. We praise God for this outstanding report.
The Board of Trustees also approved the purchase of a significant piece of land adjacent to the university, which already includes two structures, and significant additional parking space. Known today as Volunteer Trucking, the school reported that the acquisition of this piece of land has been a prayer of many for over 50 years. There is great celebration over the news of an agreement to purchase, and the approval by the Board of Trustees. The closing on the transaction should take place in October 2015.
Also pictured with this article is the newly dedicated tower erected in memory of the late Dr. Millard Reed, former president of Trevecca, and whose mark has been left in the lives of countless students upon whom he and the university have had an influence. The tower is an impressive structure that stands in the heart of the campus and serves as a graceful entrance to the quadrangle at which graduation ceremonies are held. The chimes of the tower ring out praises to God, and the lighted columns draw ones view heavenward as an aspirational reminder of the Heavenly One who brought our university into existence, and in whose name she continues to serve today. We honor the memory of Dr. Reed, and the God he served during his tenure as our president. Present at the dedication ceremony were Mrs. Martha Reed Garvin (Dr. Reeds sister) and other members of the Reed and Garvin families, trustees, students, faculty, Homecoming guests. A friend of Dr. Reed provided the funds to construct the tower.
Thank you for your prayers for our university, the university president, faculty, staff, trustees and students as God continues to move on the campus and equips His people for the fulfillment of Christs mission.
