A highlight of the Founder's Day Chapel, Nov. 4, was the recognition of two outstanding alumni of Trevecca, Lowell Clyburn and Joe Moses, and to one friend of the University, Paul Eby. These annual awards from the Trevecca Alumni Association honor persons who exemplify the best of Trevecca.
Lowell Clyburn served as a minister in four pastorates in the Church of the Nazarene and later served as a district superintendent for the Mississippi and Kentucky Districts of the Church of the Nazarene. In all of his places of service, he gave distinguished service. Now in his retirement years, he continues to serve as a Sunday school teacher and is known for the loving care he gives his neighbors.
Joe Moses had a career as an educator and school principal before returning to Trevecca to teach in the School of Education. During his ten years as a faculty member at Trevecca, he also directed the women's choir, Treble Tones for part of that time. Always active in his local church, Moses also served as the music minister at his church.
Paul Eby owned an insurance agency, but he also contributed his time to the Church of the Nazarene as a song evangelist and as a music minister. In his retirement years he became the manager of Camp Garner Creek, the retreat/camp center for the Tennessee District Church of the Nazarene.
