Faculty for 2017-2018
As most of you know, Ron Davis left Southeastern last year as a full time employee. However, Brother Ron will return this year as an adjunct faculty teaching most of what he would have taught in his full time position.
We are excited to welcome Zachary Bell as our new choir and small groups director as well as serving as a music professor. Brother Zachary is a 1999 graduate of Southeastern, has earned a graduate degree in music and has served as a church music leader since graduation. Teaching other music classes will be Mrs. Ericka Pettit who did an outstanding job of teaching private piano lessons for us last year. We are blessed to have her mother, Mrs. Teresa Siebert, to return to teach Theory II and some private lessons.
Dr. Mike Paramore retired this spring having served as a full time professor at Southeastern for 30 years. Dr. Paramore will return as an adjunct professor teaching education (TE) classes. His literature class will be taught by Mr. D. J. Pendley and his Bible and math classes will be taught by Dr. Danny Baer.
We are pleased to have Missionary David Aycock to again teach a missions class this fall. This will be an online class that Brother Aycock will be able to facilitate from Brazil. We will also offer a pre-recorded missions class taught by Missionary Hemant Patel. Note: We apologize that in our Cooperating Board Meeting in April we prematurely announced that Brother Hemant would be with us on a full time basis next year. What we did not know (neither did Hemant) was that the situation with his visa would change allowing him to return to the mission field this fall. He will, however, return to the states the first week of January and his plan is to teach our missions classes on campus during the Spring 2018 semester.
The remainder of our classes will be taught by our usual slate of Southeastern faculty and adjuncts. The only major difference, other than those listed above, is that we will be using the TRACS approved resource of Zondervan Academic for our Beginning Greek course.
