Community invited to Convocation and Commissioning Chapel

MOUNT VERNON— A special commissioning of Brewton-Parker College’s 15th President, Dr. Michael Simoneaux, will take place this Tuesday during the 2011 Fall Convocation Chapel. The service begins at 11 a.m. in Saliba Chapel on the Mount Vernon campus.

The community is invited to attend as the college family celebrates the 107th year of Brewton-Parker College and Dr. Simoneaux’s first year as its president.
