if f the mission of education i to Chri tian educationi to uppl purpose The role of the Christian university, Teague said, is to concentrate not only on liberating students from ignorance and bias, but to give them the inner strength to make and accept painful choices... E very person is vulnerable to the strong herd instinct in our culture, but students at a Christian school should learn to make moral decisions rather than merely follow the herd, he said. He also spoke of the importance of Christian teachers who provide the "initial sparks" that encourage students to live lives of leadership and service "in a society craving character and sensitivity more than just knowledge and expertise." Beth McCasland, director of special events for ACU, said she was impressed with the grandness involved throughout the inaugural celebrations, and the size and detailed attention of the inauguration. "The numbers of delegates were im- pressed with the efficiency and organiza- tion of the inaugurationf, she said. 'LI think they really enjoyed themselves and enjoyed meeting old friends and new acquaintances." Following the inaugural ceremony, more than 1,800 people gathered for the luncheon in the Grand Hall of the Abilene Civic Center,'the largest crowd ever seated in the hall, said Cheryl Mann, ACU news information director. Dr. Stevens presided at the luncheon, and Dr. Orval Filbeck, professor of educa- tion, gave the invocation. The Sing Song hosts and hostesses, David Baker, John Muns, Nancy Chester and Dita Keesee, provided musical enter- tainment and a sneak preview of Sing Song 1982, "Command Performance," which was performed the same weekend. The speaker at the luncheon, a by- invitation-only event, was Justice Jack Pope, senior justice of the Texas Supreme Court. Pope, a graduate of Abilene High School, a 1934 ACU graduate and a member of the ACU Board of Trustees, continued the emphasis of Teague's in- augural address. He told the audience how precious the people were who devoted their lives to Christian education. The Abilene native said, "High standards of teaching and the teaching of high standards are two of the most important goals for upper leve education? He emphasized the im- portance of enduring values to achieve those goals. Pope said that learning is only a smal part of what university studies are about "Education is more than learning subjec matter. You can get that from ai encyclopedia," he said. "Higher educatior should teach students to think - to thinl hard, to think clearly." This page: A Central Files employee, Net: Fowler, helps a visiting delegate registe on inauguration day.
