Frank Norwood, professor emeritus of business administration, will be the keynote speaker. Norwood taught for more than 43 years at Texas Wesleyan, shaping the lives of countless students.

Please join us as we welcome all faculty, staff and board members to campus for a historic Wesleyan tradition.
