PINEVILLE – LC officials surprised Leon Hyatt and his wife Ann with a birthday cake during the college’s February 11 chapel service, which was the day Leon turned 90 years old.
Several times Leon served as an LC trustee, and he was a long-time Baptist pastor in Louisiana.
Recently, Leon gave his pastoral library of some 6,000 volumes to the college.
“Though I have known Leon for a short time, I have a sincere appreciation for his long-standing service to Louisiana Baptists and for his unswerving love for his alma mater,” said Dr. Rick Brewer, LC’s president.
