Monday Mission, 10/27/08

Samford alums from around the world returned to the campus this past weekend for Homecoming.  Hundreds of those graduates were present for a reunion of our A Cappella Choir and to celebrate their friendship with retired dean, conductor and professor Dr. Gene Black.  In the concerts on Friday and Saturday, their powerful voices echoed throughout the Wright Center as they joined with current students in singing Beautiful Savior.  These men and women are advocates for the arts across the globe.  They are leaders in churches, schools, and universities.  They make us proud each day.   

 

The world is better because of our School of the Arts.
