President's Council

Freed-Hardeman University President’s Council



The Freed-Hardeman University President’s Council is a group of friends and alumni of FHU all over the US and Canada who are interested in a closer relationship to the current president while supporting its mission. The President’s Council was formed when David R. Shannon began his leadership of FHU, and the three former presidents shared the need for people to surround him with prayer, connection, and wisdom.
