Brooke L. Deal, Kenneth L. Morgan Installed as Endowed Chairs at Bethany

Distinguished Bethany College professors Dr. Brooke Lemmons Deal and Kenneth L. Morgan were honored as endowed chairs during a formal investiture ceremony today (September18) in the Academic Parlour of Old Main. Dr. Deal was installed as the Thomas W. Phillips Chair of Religious Studies, and Morgan as the Jennie Steindorf Renner Chair of Fine Arts, according to Dr. Scott D. Miller, President of the College.
“This is one of the highest honors a faculty member can receive,” Dr. Miller said. “The formal ceremony of investiture illustrates the connection between the scholarship of our leading instructors and the tradition of philanthropy in support of that scholarship that has been a hallmark of Bethany College for nearly 173 years. Professors Deal and Morgan are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields and are very deserving of this recognition.”

Dr. Miller noted that the College currently has 13 endowed positions.
