Rodney Cannon was awarded the 2018 Distinguished Alumnus Award for Lee University’s Division of Adult Learning at a Homecoming department breakfast on Nov. 3.

“Rodney returned to Lee University Online to finish the degree he started several years ago. His pastoral, civic, and interpersonal skills enriched my classroom,” said Catherine Yaun, director of DAL curriculum development. “He emerged as one of the most creative and persuasive writers I have ever had.”

Mr. Cannon is lead pastor of Frostproof Church of God, where he has served since 2012. He also serves on the Frostproof, Florida, city council, and he previously served as the town’s mayor.

Mr. Cannon first attended Lee University in 1996, concentrating on music ministry and participating in Campus Choir. He returned to complete his degree online in 2015, graduating two years later with a Bachelor of Science in ministry leadership with an emphasis in church administration. He received his ordination as a minister in the Church of God in 2010.

“When he commits to something, he gives 110 percent, and I am so proud to have influenced his life in a small way as both a professor and an advisor,” said Yaun. “I have no doubt that he will carry that same spirit of excellence into advanced educational pursuits.”

TVA Land Grab

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

On Wednesday the ... (click for more)
