Carson-Newman’s academic superstars will soon have their place of honor in the newly announced Academic Hall of Fame.

Executive Vice President and Provost Kina Mallard announced that the University will initiate the first Academic Hall of Fame this fall and hopes to induct its first Hall of Famers around homecoming. The announcement came during a dinner celebrating C-N’s Honors Program.

“We are excited about the opportunity to honor those Carson-Newman alumni who have distinguished themselves by excelling in their careers,” said Mallard. “The inductees into the C-N Academic Hall of Fame will represent the fulfillment of our mission of Christian commitment through loving God with their minds as well as academic excellence.”

The idea originated with past C-N professor and founder of the University’s Honors Program, Dr. Paul Brewer.

“It is simply a recognition of what our school is about — producing academic leaders in all kinds of areas,” Brewer said. “These are people we can be extremely proud of because they were trained here at Carson-Newman and carry our banner.”

Past C-N graduates include governors, members of the U.S. House of Representatives, a senator, and a former minister of justice of Liberia.

Brewer will chair a task force to develop criteria for acceptance in the Hall and the nomination procedure.
