Ed Short, 2012 Alumnus of the Year

Lewis Edward (Ed) Short has been named the 2012 Alumnus of the Year. This award was presented at the annual Advancement Council luncheon on the campus of Harding School of Theology, April 24, 2012. Ed earned his M.A. from Harding School of Theology, formerly Harding University Graduate School of Religion, in 1976. He received a Certificate in Mandarin Chinese from the Taipei Language Institute in 1969 and a special study (Chinese) from Vanderbilt University Graduate School in 1970.

Ed began his career teaching freshman Bible and senior speech at David Lipscomb High School. He was a missionary to Taiwan for 16 years, with 13 years of physical residence. He has served as pulpit minister of Paragon Mills Church of Christ in Nashville, Tenn. Ed is currently a writer/producer for World Christian Broadcasting, and has written several hundred scripts since 1985 and numerous other articles, mostly in Chinese.

Ed married Sharon Clemons in 1966 and they have two children, Alethea and Lewis, both graduates of Harding University. Alethea has two children and lives in Troy, Mich. Lewis, a missionary in Italy for 13 years, is married to Tamara Reese Short, with whom he has three children. Lewis is a student at Harding School of Theology.

Ed joins a distinguished list of Alumni of the Year, from Jimmy Moffett, the first Alumnus of the Year in 1979, to Dwight Albright, the 2011 Alumnus of the Year. We often say that your return on investment in a student at HST is more than the diploma they receive. The return is all the student accomplishes after graduation. Ed is a perfect example of a servant who is worth more than the investment. We are proud of you, Ed!
