Campus mourns passing of Rev. Billy Graham

 

(Feb. 21, 2018) – The Carson-Newman community mourns with America in the passing of Rev. Billy Graham. The institution’s flag was lowered to half-staff today. The University had the honor of presenting Graham with the “Evangelist of the 20th Century” award in 2013. Pictured above are Carson-Newman President Randall O’Brien and his wife Kay as they present the award to Graham at his home in Montreat, North Carolina.

“Our dear friend and hero of the Christian faith has gone home to be with his Lord,” said President O’Brien. “Our Carson-Newman family sends our love, prayers, and sweetest communion to the Graham family, who we dearly love. We join our hearts with our Christian brothers and sisters worldwide in giving thanks to God for the faithful witness and beautiful life of the Reverend Doctor Billy Graham in his blessed service to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
