Dr. George Miller III (1972) 8th president
Both Dr. Miller and Dr. Pedrone addressed the Faculty and Staff body after registration today and they will both address the student body tomorrow in a special chapel.
Dr. Pedrone had been considered for the presidency between the Kroll and Linebaugh administration (1990-1991), yet had other plans and now it is coming full circle. God has His timing and His timing and plans are perfect.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) Dr. Miller and Dr. Pedrone will address the student body in Chapel.
