University welcomes three to board of trustees

(Jan. 28, 2016) – Carson-Newman University recently welcomed three new members to its board of trustees. They began their service in January.

“We often say that a university can be no stronger than its faculty,” said Carson-Newman President J. Randall O’Brien. “But it’s also important to have a strong Board of Trustees, as well. These three new members are proven leaders in their work, and in service to others. These are qualities Carson-Newman holds dear, driving us to success in our mission.

New Carson-Newman University Board of Trustees members include:
• Bob Gay II, Greeneville, Edward Jones financial advisor, 1972 Carson-Newman alumnus
• Dr. H. Dean Haun, Morristown, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Morristown
• Gary William Page, Charlotte, North Carolina, entrepreneur, owner and president of Helium & Balloons Across America, 1969 Carson-Newman alumnus

The three new members bring the total number of trustees to 29 serving the interests of Carson-Newman University.

Carson-Newman University is a private, Christian liberal arts institution. Founded in 1851, Carson-Newman is located in Jefferson City, Tennessee, among the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The University has over 2,500 students and offers 50 undergraduate majors, as well as bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees.
