Giving money to Trevecca is mutually cheerful only when a positive attitude is reciprocal. If the giver doesn’t realize what others sacrificed to make his or her Trevecca education possible, resentment could be a reasonable response to an appeal for money.

At Trevecca, names are important. Names—whether the name of a building, a bell tower, or a cafeteria—are reminders of our history. Every day, students take classes in McClurkan, Mackey, and Boone, but do we ever wonder who these buildings are named after? Who were the Waggoners? Who was Tidwell or Moore or Tarter? Why are two of the girl’s dorms named after states? As we witness the development of our new music building with an ever forward-thinking gaze, we want to remember the stories and legacies that made our present possible and our future hopeful.
On October 12, Jeremy Cowart, Blake Thompson, Benji Cowart and Matt Litton will join us for a conversation about work and creativity. The Trevecca Association of Business Professionals is sponsoring the luncheon, called “Why All Work Is Creative (And What To Do About It).”
