Freed-Hardeman University will begin the new academic year Aug. 23 with the 18th annual ceremonial Tolling of the Bell. Current president David Shannon, along with three former FHU presidents, will officially ring in the year during 10:30 a.m. chapel in Loyd Auditorium.
The three former presidents: Dr. E. Claude Gardner, 1969-1990; Dr. Milton Sewell, 1990-2008; and Dr. Joe Wiley, 2008-2017; encompass almost 50 years of FHU history. They, along with Shannon, are the 2017 Masters of the Bell.
The bell, brought from Southern Tennessee Normal College, A.G. Freed’s school in Essary Springs, Tennessee, will be tolled once for each decade of Freed-Hardeman’s history.
Students will start arriving in Henderson Aug. 19 when residence halls open. New students will be greeted with Welcome Home and Interface, an orientation program, will begin that day. Classes are slated to begin Wednesday, Aug. 23.
