Farris Donation to The Center

It was nice to have Mrs. Edith “Edie” Vick Farris, class of 1953 and former Trustee, visit the Fine Arts Center on Thursday, November 1. Mrs. Farris was on campus for the dedication of the Farris Prayer Room, located on the first floor of Whitaker Library, which she generously donated in memory of her late husband, LTC US Army, Phil Farris.

Her generosity did not stop there. She also donated the glass display case for our newest Jenkins collection to the Fine Arts Center. This glass display case now exhibits a collection of jewelry that belonged to the sister-in-law of our philanthropist, Wayland Jenkins. Pictured from left: Liz Brown, Claire Strickland, Edie Farris, and John Tayloe.

Come see our newest collection! To schedule a visit for your art league, church group, civic group, class or friends and family, contact Twyla Duke by calling (252) 398-6320.
