Trinity Christian College will name one of the Heritage Science Center's chemistry laboratories in honor of former President AJ Anglin and his wife, Florence. Dr. Anglin retired this summer after completing his sixth year in the office.

The chemistry lab symbolizes an integral part of his past. Anglin graduated from John Brown University in his native Arkansas with a bachelor's degree in chemistry before attaining his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Arkansas. He then taught chemistry for 12 years at Taylor University in Upland, Ind.

"God has richly blessed our time at Trinity," said Anglin. "The College will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we are deeply honored by this gesture."

The construction of the new science building is one of several landmarks that highlight Dr. Anglin's tenure. After he arrived at Trinity in 1996, the College enjoyed a period of tremendous spiritual, physical, and academic growth. Besides new buildings, student population increased and new courses were added to the curriculum.

"Dr. Anglin brought a strong vision and commitment to Trinity," said Provost Liz Rudenga. "His impact has been evident throughout the Trinity community, both on and off campus."

The Anglins, who met as students at John Brown University, have returned to their Arkansas home.
