OBU excitement

Posted By on Mon, Mar 26, 2007 at 6:38 PM

I visited today with press in town for big events at Ouachita Baptist University this week, the investiture of new president Dr. Rex Horne.

Bill Clinton, once pastored by Dr. Horne, will speak at OBU tomorrow. The formal ceremony is Thursday. We're told the situation is as before, famed OBU alumnus Mike Huckabee, who's donated his papers to OBU (and wouldn't we like to see them some day) and is slated to have a part-time spot on the faculty, won't be on hand. He's campaigning for president. Gov. Mike Beebe, an ASU grad, will lend his office to the occasion
