Athens, W.Va. – Concord University President Jerry L. Beasley welcomed guests and honorees to the University’s Service Awards ceremony on Thursday, March 17, in the College Center State Room.  The ceremony gives the University an opportunity to recognize employees who have reached five-year incremental benchmarks in their employment.

“History is a source of inspiration,” he noted.  “Dr. Bard, who is retiring, has agreed to research and write a history of Concord.  We’ve had a ‘short’ version, but never a comprehensive history of this institution and I am pleased that he has agreed to do this.”
