Crowds Gather at Judson University to Celebrate Founders’ Day


(Elgin, IL – October 17, 2014) With a legacy that spans more than 100 years, Judson University had much to celebrate as part of Founders' Day activities today, Friday, Oct. 17. This morning’s Founders’ Day Chapel was a wonderful beginning to the annual celebration, which had as its theme “Our Baptist Foundation, Our Baptist Future.” Chapel opened with a processional of Judson’s faculty and administrators. The Judson University Choir chimed in with a moving rendition of “God Is My Rock.” Academic Provost Dr. Will Friesen presented the official welcome, and Judson Student Organization President Ashley Barak gave the invocation. Dr. Nate Adams, chair of the Judson Board of Trustees, offered remarks before Judson President Dr. Gene C. Crume introduced Guest Speaker Dr. Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Ala.

A formal luncheon held in the Judson Dining Hall brought together local business people, alumni, staff, faculty and friends. Judson Chancellor Dr. Jerry B. Cain of Kansas City, Mo., served as the guest speaker. The luncheon was capped off by the presentation of the Golden Eagle Award, which was given to Dr. E. Harold Harper of Stillwater, Minn., who served as Judson’s second vice president and academic dean from 1981 to 1992.
