For the second time in the last few weeks, the words “East Texas Baptist University” rang out on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. This time, it was in reference to congratulatory remarks from the House of Representatives and Rep. Louie Gohmert, representative from the First District of Texas, encompassing 12 counties in the eastern portion of Texas.
Rep. Gohmert had this to say while addressing the House, “ETBU stands by its commitment to the development of intellectual inquiry, social consciousness, wellness, and skills for a contemporary society, global awareness, and Christian character. Its focus is on quality academic programs in the humanities, natural and social sciences, fine arts, and selected professional areas. Staff and faculty of ETBU affirm that the liberal arts form the surest foundation for education and that the Christian faith provides the surest foundation for life.”
Pictured with this article is the official proclamation received by ETBU from the 112th Congress, Second Session, on Monday, February 27, 2012 honoring ETBU for its 100th anniversary.
A hearty thank you to Representative Louie Gohmert for his kind remarks for our University as he addressed the House.
We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful University. We are so thankful for the last 100 years and are thrilled to see what God will do in the next 100.
