PINEVILLE – Louisiana College on Thursday, Oct. 2, celebrates its founding 102 years ago with the annual Founder’s Day chapel service.
It was on Oct. 3, 1906, that Louisiana College was founded as a private, Christian, liberal arts college funded by the Louisiana Baptist Convention. Each year, the founding of the college is marked by a campus-wide celebration and special chapel service.
This chapel service is to take place at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, in Guinn Auditorium.
Every year several individuals are chosen for the LC trustee’s Distinguished Service Award. These individuals are chosen for their exceptional service to others over many years, LC President Joe Aguillard said.
“Recipients are always outstanding leaders in their church, to their community, state, and nation,” Aguillard said. “All follow Christ and by his example are servants of others.”
Two Distinguished Service Award recipients are to be honored Oct. 2: Jim Richards, Executive Director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, and Tony Perkins, President of the Washington, D.C. based Family Research Council.
Both recipients will be recognized in the chapel service and will have the opportunity to address the student body. Guests are welcome to participate in the celebration.
