Southern Adventist University To Honor Servant Leaders At President’s Gala

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Southern Adventist University's President David Smith, PhD, will be hosting the Honoring Servant Leaders President’s Gala this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in Iles P.E. Center on the university’s campus. Through an open nomination process, three Chattanooga community members were selected to be recognized for their servant leadership. The honorees are: Wilmer Perez, a student at Howard High School (Youth Category); Irvin Overton, a volunteer (Community Category); and Ron Lowe, executive director at Every Valley Leadership Academy (Professional Category).  

The event also includes a silent auction sponsored by Biltmore Center for Professional Development. The WSMC String Ensemble will provide live music, and Dan Bower, president of ArtsBuild, will serve as master of ceremonies for the evening. 

"Many local business and community leaders are coming together to support the gala and the mission of Southern Adventist University, including Morning Pointe, SouthEast Bank and many more. All proceeds from the event will contribute to Southern’s scholarships, helping even more young people get quality, Christian higher education," officials said.
