Department Holds Annual Awards Banquet
May 6, 2005 - The history and political science department held its Annual Awards Banquet at Union on May 5, 2005. Coordinated by the Rutledge Honorary History Club under Dr. Terry Lindley’s leadership, the banquet was attended by thirty-five people who enjoyed a Mexican dinner as a way of celebrating the Mexican/ Chicano holiday Cinco de Mayo. The banquet, in which all department-sponsored student organizations participate, is where the department recognizes the accomplishments of a number of history and political science students in the areas of academic performance and leadership. The 2005 student award recipients are listed on the department’s home page under the heading “Awards.” The evening’s featured speaker was Dr. Timothy Weber, President of Memphis Seminary, who talked about “On the Road to Armageddon: How Evangelicals Became Israel’s Best Friend.”
