Community invited to Convocation and Commissioning Chapel
MOUNT VERNON— A special commissioning of Brewton-Parker College’s 15th President, Dr. Michael Simoneaux, will take place this Tuesday during the 2011 Fall Convocation Chapel. The service begins at 11 a.m. in Saliba Chapel on the Mount Vernon campus.
The community is invited to attend as the college family celebrates the 107th year of Brewton-Parker College and Dr. Simoneaux’s first year as its president.
Karl Hay, pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church and BPC trustee, will perform the commissioning ceremony. Dr. Mike Williams, assistant executive director and vice president for operations of the Georgia Baptist Convention, will give the Convocation address.
Convocation is a tradition which symbolizes the beginning of a new academic year and introduces students to faculty members. The formal inauguration of the new BPC president will be held later in the school year.
Fall semester classes began Monday, August 22, on both the Mount Vernon campus and at the Newnan Center. To learn more about Brewton-Parker College, go to www.bpc.edu.
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited, four-year Christian college in South Georgia. Affiliated by the Georgia Baptist Convention, BPC’s vision is to honor Jesus Christ in every area of the academy.
