(Walnut Ridge, Ark.) – The spring semester is underway at Williams Baptist College, and with it comes celebration of the collegeâ€™s diamond anniversary. The liberal arts college at Walnut Ridge was founded in 1941, and WBC is set to celebrate the 75-year mark throughout 2016.
â€œOur diamond anniversary is a great time to pause and reflect on all that Williams Baptist College has become over the past 75 years,â€ said Dr. Tom Jones, WBCâ€™s president. â€œFor seven and a half decades, Williams has fostered academic excellence and Christian commitment. As a result it is now a national leader in providing high-quality,affordable Christian education. Itâ€™s a great tribute to the collegeâ€™s founders.â€
Williams commissioned a 75th anniversary logo that can be seen all around campus and in the collegeâ€™s publicity this year.
Commemorative chapel services, giveaways, weekly trivia, and more will take place all year long. WBCâ€™s fall homecoming festivities will serve as the finale to the year of celebration, with several special events ready to take place.
