ARKADELPHIA—Ouachita Baptist University’s board of trustees elected five new trustees and approved two administrative staff recommendations during the board’s Dec. 11 meeting on Ouachita’s Arkadelphia campus.
In other business, Ouachita President Rex Horne announced that efforts are under way to raise funds for the renovation of Berry Bible Building. The facility, built in 1962, is the academic hub of Ouachita’s Pruet School of Christian Studies. Plans call for updating classrooms, offices and other resources.
There currently are more than 175 Ouachita students pursuing majors in Christian studies and more than 400 students who cite an interest in preparing for vocational ministry. The renovation project will allow students to study in an enhanced learning environment as they prepare for ministry in Arkansas and around the world.
