WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. –  A reception in honor of Dr. Tom and Gail Jones is slated for Thursday, November 16, at Williams Baptist College.  The drop-in reception will run from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., in the Swaim Administration Building rotunda.

Jones is the sixth president in the institution’s 76-year history and has been at Williams since 2012.

Jones announced last month that he will leave Williams later this year for a position in California.  He will be serving with the California Baptist Foundation, which raises and manages financial resources for California Southern Baptists.  The foundation currently manages over $100 Million for Baptists and their ministries.

The public is invited to attend the drop-in reception.

Williams is a Christian, liberal arts college in Walnut Ridge, Ark.  It will formally become Williams Baptist University in July of 2018.
