William Carey University recently presented a Legacy of Learning designation to Obra Quave, professor emeritus of theatre, who retired in 2002 after a 42-year career as chair of the drama and theatre department. During the ceremony, Quave’s former pastor from University Baptist Church, Dr. Dick Allison, shared his contributions to the church. Following his remarks, former students shared some of their meaningful experiences from having Quave as not only a professor, but as a mentor and friend.
Dr. Scott Hummel, vice president for advancement and church relations, presented Quave with a memory box filled with notes of gratitude from friends and former students at WCU.
Quave continues to teach adjunct at William Carey, and assists with various aspects of Carey’s theatre program.
