A reception in honor of Dr. Tom and Gail Jones is slated for Thursday, November 16, at Williams Baptist University. The drop-in reception will run from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., in the Swaim Administration Building rotunda.
Jones is the sixth president in the institution’s 76-year history and has been at Williams since 2012.
Jones announced last month that he will leave Williams later this year for a position in California. He will be serving with the California Baptist Foundation, which raises and manages financial resources for California Southern Baptists. The foundation currently manages over $100 Million for Baptists and their ministries.
The public is invited to attend the drop-in reception.
Williams is a Christian, liberal arts college in Walnut Ridge, Ark. It will formally become Williams Baptist University in July of 2018.
