Once each year I have the opportunity to speak to all of our faculty and staff, along with their spouses. For our annual Service of Dedication we are also joined by many of our Board of Trustee members, student leaders, and some close friends of the University. Our branch campus faculty and staff join us through video.
A highlight each year is recognizing anniversaries of service 5, 10, 15, and 20 year milestones this year. We present clocks – which get larger the longer they have been at Belhaven, and the few 40 year clocks we’ve given through the years were beautiful grandfather clocks.
I also cherish the time to share with the campus my reflections on the coming year, as expressed through our verse of they year. To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
