Noonkester School of Arts & Letters

How the Noonkester School Got Its Name

The Noonkester School is named for Dr. J. Ralph Noonkester and Mrs. Naomi Hopkins Noonkester, who served as president and first lady of William Carey College from 1956 to 1989.

All of our art courses are taught by professional, working artists who understand what it takes to live a creative life. Our graduates are working in areas all across the country. As a Baptist supported school, we also operate within the framework of Christian morals and values.
