50-Year Reunion at WCU
Hattiesburg, Miss., April 19, 2013 - At Homecoming 2013, William Carey University held a 50-Year Alumni Luncheon at noon in the Student Conference Center on Friday, April 12.
The luncheon began with a welcome by Ted Bower, president of WCU’s alumni council, and an opening prayer by Dr. Scott Hummel executive vice president and provost. The WCU alumni council served guests a sit-down lunch while Jim Armstrong, assistant professor of music, Jim Pierce, assistant professor of music therapy, provided musical entertainment. Dr. Hummel then presented the Legacy of Learning Stone, dedicated to former Dean of Men Dr. A.M. Tate. The Legacy Scholarship Endowment honors faculty who have left a legacy of learning because they not only taught their subjects well, but invested in the lives of their students and made a lasting impact on them.
Following the legacy presentation, Cindy Cofield, alumni director, and Dr. King presented medallions to those who graduated in 1963. Dr. King closed out the program with an update on WCU before Josephine D’Arpa, associate professor of music emerita, led in the alma mater.
