HST to Honor Lewis on his 95th Birthday

March 12, 2014 | Written by Matt Carter

Dr. Jack P. Lewis

Dr. Jack P. Lewis

March 22, 2014, HST will honor Dr. Jack P. Lewis on the occasion of his 95th birthday at our annual Leadership Council Dinner. The celebration will begin at 6 p.m. at the Memphis Botanic Garden.

Our special guest speaker will be Randy Harris, and a video of Lewis’ colleagues and special friends will be shown. Lewis’ books will be available for purchase at the dinner.

Lewis has set the standard for academic excellence at HST. Born in Texas, he attended Abilene Christian University and Sam Houston State Teachers’ College and earned Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University and Hebrew Union College. He has received numerous fellowship grants and was the Thayer Fellow at the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research, Jerusalem, in 1967-68 and Senior Fellow there in 1983-84. Lewis taught Bible courses at Harding University and HST for 50 years. He has served in local work with churches in Texas, Rhode Island and Kentucky and continues to serve as an elder of the White Station Church of Christ in Memphis.

The goal of the dinner honoring Lewis is to raise $95,000. One half of the amount raised will be added to the Lewis Scholars Endowed Scholarship fund, which provides for students designated as Lewis Scholars. The other half will be added to the annual scholarship fund for currently enrolled students. Please show your appreciation to Dr. Lewis with a gift to HST of $95. Send your gift to:

HST Advancement
1000 Cherry Road
Memphis, TN 38117

You may also make an online pledge.
