ACU to unveil Centennial mural, timeline Saturday

Aug. 18, 2005

A Centennial mural and timeline will be introduced Saturday as the first of more than 40 Centennial exhibits that will open during the next two months. The unveiling of the mural and timeline will be at 12:15 p.m. Saturday in the Onstead-Packer Biblical Studies Building, Hall of Servants.

Although the grand opening ceremony Saturday will focus on the Hall of Servants exhibit, three other exhibits will also open this weekend – in Moody Coliseum, in the McGlothlin Campus Center and in the Women for ACU Jennings House Museum. On Oct. 14, the full slate of exhibits and a walking tour will be open to the public, with more than 40 exhibit locations around campus.

Saturday’s ceremony will include Dr. Royce Money, ACU president; Dr. John Stevens, chancellor emeritus; Dr. John Tyson, vice president for development; and Dr. Michelle Morris, vice president of university relations and director of the Centennial Celebration. All are invited to attend the ceremony.

The timeline and mural stands 10 feet tall and is approximately 160 feet long, with photographs and descriptions of each decade in ACU’s 100-year history. It was designed and compiled by graphic designer Greg Golden and Centennial curator Becky Estrella.

ACU, a national leader in Christian higher education with 4,700 students from around the world, was founded Sept. 11, 1906. The university is celebrating its Centennial year from Aug. 22, 2005 to Sept. 11, 2006 with the theme "Called to Faith and Excellence."
