Trevecca Nazarene University

An Evening of Inspiration

Approximately 600 members of the Trevecca family in Middle Tennessee came to “An Evening of Inspiration” to celebrate the dedication of the new Boone Business Building on Sunday, February 25.

Music for the evening was provided by a combined choir and orchestra composed of musicians from area Churches of the Nazarene and anchored by Nashville First Church of the Nazarene. Representative pastors of Churches of the Nazarene in the Nashville participated in the service. Three alumni of Trevecca’s business programs spoke about the ways that their Trevecca education influenced their careers—Jim Hiatt ’76 , dean of the School of Business; David Caldwell ’84; and Kelly Plummer ’99.

The service concluded with a ceremony of consecration for the new building. In his remarks President Dan Boone recounted the story behind the naming of the building, how he became friends with Christopher Sims when Sims was battling cancer. That friendship resulted in the generous donation of the Sims family, who requested that the building be named in honor of Boone. Provost Steve Pusey led the audience in a liturgy of consecration.

A reception followed the service, and members of the faculty of the School of Business gave tours of the new building.
