Reverend Amos Disasa joins a long -standing tradition of First Presbyterian Church during Commencement weekend at Austin College on May 21-22. Amos will be the Baccalaureate speaker at 7 PM on May 21 during the 172nd Annual Commencement. He will also receive an Honorary Doctorate at Commencement itself, which begins at 8:30 AM on Saturday, May 22. FPC Senior Pastors Dr. John Anderson, Dr. William Carl and Dr. Joe Clifford also delivered Baccalaureate addresses. John Anderson and Joe Clifford both received Honorary Doctorates from Austin College in addition to serving on the Board of Trustees; Dr. Carl was also a Trustee and continues as a member of the Senior Board.
Austin College and First Presbyterian Church have always had an historic and rich partnership. The FPC Foundation often contributed to the John and Nancy Anderson Scholarship Fund among other forms of support. Both John Anderson and Nancy Love Anderson were graduates of Austin College. Several FPC members are either current or former Trustees including Ann Ross, Sharon King and Becky Sykes, who is Vice Chair.
