Trevecca Nazarene University’s incoming president, Dr. Dan Boone, a descendant of American frontiersman Daniel Boone, announced plans last week to expand the university's size and vivibility in the Nashville area. Boone, a Trevecca alumnus, was recently chosen to replace Millard Reed. Reed retires after 14 years as president at the end of June. Boone plans to get more recognition sfor the school by sending students into the community on service projects.
Boone created the Room in the Inn program to provide winter shelter for Nashville’s homeless; 150 area religious congregations now participate in the program.
Boone comes to Trevecca after serving as the senior pastor of the College Church of the Nazarene in Bourbonnais, Il. for the past 14 years. Prior to that, Boone was the senior pastor at the College Hill Church of the Nazarene in Nashville where he created the Room in the Inn program to provide winter shelter for Nashville’s homeless.
Trevecca also recently announced a new partnership with Belmont University to offer a nursing program. In the program students will divide their time between the two schools. Students will be able to apply for clinical positions at the Tri-Star/HCA family of hospitals.
