Trees of Honor


To recognize individuals who have provided exemplary service to Evangel University

Having been observers and beneficiaries of outstanding leadership and dedicated service by founders, administrators, academic professionals, students and friends of the University over the years, the Evangel University Pioneers initiated the Trees of Honor project for the purpose of recognizing individuals who provided distinguished service to help make Evangel the outstanding University it is today. The planting of trees is seen as aLiving Tribute to honorees selected by the Trees of Honor project and its representatives.
