Dr. Randy Lowry, newly-elected president of Lipscomb University, now holds the record for the shortest trustee tenure in ACU's history.

Lowry, who was named to ACU's Board of Trustees in the spring, had to resign just days after his first official meetings as a board member, thanks to his new position as the president of Lipscomb University, located in Nashville, Tenn.

Still, Lowry made the most of his few days on campus and on the board, and he spoke to ACU president Dr. Royce Money about continued cooperation and partnership between ACU and Lipscomb, which is also a Church-of-Christ affiliated school.

As a symbol of that commitment, Lowry presented Money with a framed photo of Lipscomb's new light tower on campus.

Lowry, who is founder of the nationally-recognized Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution and professor of law at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., will take office as Lipscomb president on Nov. 1.
