RP ii n nnnn ff T f m mmm Coordinating the Entire College Program Dr. E. Eugene Poston, President of Gardner Webb for seven years, has the tremendous responsibility of organizing the administration of a fast-growing Christian college in a world where the theory of God ' s death seems to be be- coming an accepted tradition. Dr. Poston is dedicated to creating a Christian atmosphere for Gardner Webb. For those who come in contact with this college, it becomes evident that society has not yet become so sophisticated that a complex organization cannot successfully revolve around a central dedication to God. Once the far-reaching possibilities of a Christian oriented life are realized, the spiritual environment at GW will per- vade the student ' s total personality. Being responsible for the coordination of the entire college program places the burden of reaching four-year status on Dr. Poston ' s shoulders. Academically, he is in a position to bring stimulating per- sonalities to the campus by recruiting competent faculty members. This stimu- lation of academic curiousity is of ever- growing importance to Gardner Webb as we strive toward four-year standing. With positive leadership hke Dr. Pos- ton ' s, Gardner Webb ' s Decade of Ad- vancement is progressing rapidly as it keeps the " Extra Dimension, " quaUty Christian Education, in the spotlight. As president. Dr. Poston recruits new professors to complete requirements for Gaidner-Webb ' s entrance into the foui-year program. Dr. Poston ' s presence at nearly all athletic e- vents strengthens the students ' respect for the administration. 13 ik rii tail iMaaiilbiMM M i« M MaiiliM i«dMliiii

Mr. R. Pat- rick Spangler serves as chairman of the Board; its Vice Chairman is Mrs. Rush Stroup. Other offices are held by the fol- lowing; Mrs. 0. Max Gardner, Treasurer; Miss CharUne Stamey, Assistant Treas- urer; Mr. A. T. Withrow, Assistant Secre- tary. Other members of the Board are; Ar- thur C. Garrison, Earl T. Groves, Garrie L. Kendrick, Forest C. Roberts, Sr., Rob- ert B. Scruggs, Wade Short, H. Paul Bridges, H. Max Craig, Jr., T. W. Estes, G. B. Harrill, Vance Huggins, C. P. Nanney, J. Roy Robinson, J. ToHver Davis, Ralph W. Gardner, John Gibson, J. L. Nicholas, D. A. Rawley, Sr., Hobart C. Smith, and Henry B. Stokes. This Board elects the President of the college and acts on his recommendations. For example, they must approve prospec- tive members of the faculty and adminis- trative staff. Even with the amount of power that they have over the college, the Board of Trustees is still subject to the Baptist State Convention. Near the end of the first semester, the wives of the Trustees sponsored a Campus Beautification Day which gave the stu- dent body a chance to show pride in their abna mater. ttttmdtht tti
