The second annual Heritage Day was held on Thursday, March 24, with all planned events celebrating the heritage of President Emeritus Homer Adams, PhD, and his wife Beatrice.

This event, hosted by Waggoner Library Archives, the Office of Alumni Relations, and the Office of the Chaplain, is part of Trevecca’s Heritage Day series.

The day began with a reception held at Trevecca Community Church of the Nazarene, which was just prior to the chapel service for the entire Trevecca community. In chapel, Adams, was interviewed by Michael Johnson, Public Liaison: Office of the President.

Following the chapel service, a “Preserving & Displaying Family Heirlooms” workshop was held by Jeanne Sugg, retired Tennessee State Librarian & Archivist, and Candace J. Adelson, PhD, Senior Curator of Fashion & Textiles, Tennessee State Museum. This event was held in Waggoner Library’s Quick Lecture Hall and hosted by Waggoner Library’s Archives. Following the event, guests were encouraged to look through the Ray and C.R. Thrasher Archives in the lower wing of the building. The Homer Adams Collection was there on display with books and memorabilia donated by Adams’ and saved from the time of the Adams presidency.

The Trevecca community also gathered at 1:45 PM, for a Adams Building Re-Dedication. A group gathered inside the newly remodeled building and soon-to-be home of Trevecca’s growing graduate psychology program.

A luncheon was also held with Adams as the honored guest.
