It’s on the web…it must be true – from Don Hastings

So I read a list on Facebook of the best… well, you name it. One list I recently came across shared the Best Christian Universities. I’m not sure what yardstick they were using to measure colleges against, but for me, the following list came to mind. The Best Christian University should… 1.… more

Belle, Bill, and Maureen – from Don Hastings

Strange title, huh? These three names have much significance in my life. The first is the town where I grew up, the second is my father, and the third is my mother: all three significant because that’s where my legacy began. My worldview began to take shape thanks to these three names.… more

It’s Time to Say Thank You – from Mike Blankenship

Two words that express what’s in my heart: Thank you. Thank you, Trevecca, and Thank you, Trevecca alumni. Since my freshman year, Trevecca has given me opportunities that I never dreamed would come my way. Administrators, faculty, staff, and fellow students believed in me then and helped me believe in myself. That… more

We need to do this again soon – from Mike Blankenship

The Trevecca Celebration in Florida and the Trevecca Alumni and Friends Cruise shared some common features. A lot of laughter. Special memories. Friendly times around a table.

The joy of reconnecting – from Mike Blankenship

A Call Makes a Big Difference – Mike Blankenship

A few weeks ago I answered the phone at my office, and when the caller said hello and began to introduce himself, I immediately recognized the voice of a former Trevecca classmate. A smile crossed my face as I remembered our college days and the memories we shared. We caught up on… more

A letter from Michael Blankenship

At this year’s Trevecca graduation I saw persons whose dream had come true. Fulfilling those dreams and completing a degree was the result of a dream AND having a team around them, a team of special people—parents, church family, friends, employers, teachers, and others. At Trevecca those teams expanded to include many… more

“Four C’s Determine Value”

When I was a student at Nazarene Theological Seminary, I worked in a jewelry store and learned about the “4 C’s,” the standards for determining the value of a precious stone. As an alumnus of Trevecca, I realize that Trevecca also utilized a 4-C standard to bring out the very best in… more
