From June 19-27, many from the NNU community traveled to participate in the Church of the Nazarene’s General Assembly in Indianapolis, Ind. NNU’s presence at the assembly was noteworthy.
NNU’s impressive Centennial booth in the exhibition hall featured an interactive, historic display. Included were President Wiley’s personal Bible, the Bible belonging to 1947 nursing student Nellie Mae (Sever) Moore, and Prescott L. Beals’ 1952 Marathi (India) translation of the Nazarene Manual. The booth attracted many visitors throughout the week. Continually, alumni and passers-by could be found milling about the display, discussing NNU and her Centennial celebration.
On Sunday, June 23, NNU hosted a Centennial Luncheon for alumni and friends. Over 300 people were in attendance completely filling the venue. The luncheon program featured President Alexander’s celebration of 12 Centennial Medallion Honorees—individuals who symbolize the sacrifice, commitment and achievements of hundreds of other alumni and friends of the university. Guests stayed long after the Centennial Luncheon was completed, even after the stage and decorations were dismantled, enjoying the fellowship of like-minded University friends.
The administration of the University is grateful to the NNU personnel who spent several days away from family to serve their University, and appreciates all other friends who stopped by the booth, shared their stories and memories, and made this General Assembly a wonderful experience.
