Hannibal-LaGrange University is proud to welcome Dr. Anthony Allen to campus as its 17th president. As a celebration of Dr. Allen and his family, a Meet and Greet is planned for Thursday, September 6th from 4-7 pm at Parkway Baptist Church, 12465 Olive BLVD in St. Louis.

Dr. Allen was announced as the 17th president on May 5th at the end of the graduation ceremony. The selection of Dr. Allen was a unanimous decision by the board of trustees who had been reviewing several other applicants since Dr. Woodrow Burt announced his retirement in November.

“I greatly admire the strong leadership that Dr. Woodrow Burt has
provided to Hannibal-LaGrange for the past 18 years” said Dr. Allen. “We are deeply grateful to Dr. and Mrs. Woodrow Burt for their faithful and significant investment at HLGU and eagerly anticipate both observing and preserving the fruits of their labor.”

In a heartfelt thank you to the University, Dr. Burt said “with God’s help and under the capable leadership of Dr. Anthony Allen, the best days of Hannibal-LaGrange University are yet to come.”

Refreshments will be served at the reception, a time to look forward to the great things in store for Hannibal-LaGrange University. For more information, contact Lauren Youse at lauren.youse@hlg.edu or call 573-629-3126.
