Welcome Message

The President’s Dinner for Faculty and Staff, which was established in the fall of 1950 by ONU President Harold Reed, has become a hallmark of the University annual calendar. Our time together this evening marks the official beginning of the new academic year and celebrates the shared life of the Olivet family.

We are particularly pleased to welcome some new members of the faculty and staff and to recognize the varied accomplishments of many of our colleagues. Please take time to carefully review the dinner program, which highlights a number of those service and professional accomplishments.

We hope you have a wonderful evening and may the Lord continue to bless our efforts to provide a high quality “Education with a Christian Purpose.”

John and Jill Bowling
