The great-grandson of N.B. Hardeman, long-time president of Freed-Hardeman College whose name the university bears, will be the master of the bell Aug. 21 for the annual Tolling of the Bell at Freed-Hardeman University at 10:30am in Loyd Auditorium.
Frank (Brad) Bradshaw will represent the Hardeman family at the annual event marking the beginning of FHU’s 150th year. He has worked in commercial real estate for more than 35 years. He was also a major in the U.S. Army Reserve. He has been a deacon in the church of Christ for 16 years, and he currently attends Buford church of Christ in Buford, Georgia. He and his wife Lynn are the parents of two children, Emily, a spring graduate of FHU, and Frank, a current student.
The restoration of the N.B. Hardeman home place at 307 White Avenue in Henderson was made possible through the generosity of the Bradshaw and Hardeman families. They also contributed to the restoration of Old Main, built in 1908 by Hardeman and A.G. Freed.
Other events planned for the first day of the 2019-20 school year include a luncheon for retired members of the FHU faculty and staff at 11:30am, a grand re-opening and tours of the Hardeman House at 2:00pm and a 150th Birthday Bash at 5:00pm in Heritage Commons. The day will conclude with a campus-wide worship service led by FHU President David Shannon at 6:45pm in the Commons.
