For four years, Scott was the preaching minister at Granny White church, Nashville, Tenn. His last Sunday at Granny White was July 17.
During the evening service, Dr. Gleaves was presented a Faulkner Eagle statue by Dr. Ernest Clevenger. The eagle had been presented to Clevenger when he was the academic dean in 1977. In the presentation Clevenger asked Gleaves to “take the eagle back home.”
Scott begins his work with Faulkner Aug. 1.
