five reasons

The editorial staff of the Marshall News Messenger in Sunday’s edition (12/8) expressed their view on “Five reasons why growth is in Marshall’s future.”

East Texas Baptist University was listed as one of the five. Also listed were industrial expansion through the work of the Marshall Economic Development Corporation, an improving Marshall Independent School District, Texas State Technical College because “the leadership has become masterful at doing what it takes to make training available for the employers of the area,” and the  creative power of Music.

Here is what was written about ETBU on page 4A:

“East Texas Baptist University. Quite plainly, Dr. Dub Oliver, the president of ETBU is a visionary and his vision is not just building the university, but Marshall, too. We don’t know where all this will eventually lead, but we already know that it is going to have a big impact on downtown Marshall with the conversion of the old Hotel Marshall into a graduate center. Wait and see, this is going to be a huge development.”
