MOUNT VERNON—Dr. Bill Faw, Professor of Psychology, SACS Accreditation Liaison, and Assistant to the Provost for Academic Assessment at Brewton-Parker College, celebrated more than 15 years of service at a retirement luncheon hosted by members of the BPC family on Thursday, December 9, on the Mount Vernon Campus.

Dr. Faw has served as Chair of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Division and as Dean of External Programs; as well as serving on many faculty committees.

“Retiring at age 70, with 15 ½ years at BPC and totaling more than 20 years as a pastor and more than 20 years as a professor, is not such a bad thing to do - especially since I plan to continue writing and conference participating,” said Faw.

He and his wife Martha, who will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in March, plan to remain in Vidalia.

Faw’s plans include gardening, at least one book writing project, academic conferences, and other types of travel. He will attend a conference in Istanbul in 2011 and Cape Town in 2012. “I have traveled in all seven continents and lived in three, but I still have many more countries to discover,” said Faw.

Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in South Georgia.
