Henderson, Tenn. - Oct 13, 2016

Freed-Hardeman University will conduct its Second Annual University Scholars' Day Oct. 28. The event is a school-wide recognition of students’ and faculty’s research achievements. Students will attend the sessions most relevant to their interests to learn more about their classmates' and teachers' endeavors.

A total of 35 presentations, seven roundtable discussions and a variety of poster displays are planned for the day. University Scholars’ Day starts at 8:30am and lasts until noon. Regular classes are cancelled for the day, and the student body is required to attend Scholars’ Day sessions. All presentations will be in Loyd Auditorium.

Keynote speaker Tim Henderson, new executive director of Humanities Tennessee, will address the group at 8:50am. Humanities Tennessee is committed to encouraging lifelong learning, constructive discussion and recognition of community, history and diversity among Tennesseans. Henderson has been with Humanities Tennessee since 1998. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and philosophy from Union University. He also has master’s degrees in English and information science from Middle Tennessee State University and the University of Tennessee, respectively.
