The School of Christian Ministries of Emmanuel College inaugurated two new awards in October 2010: the G. Earl Beatty Servant Leadership Award and the Garnet Pike Visionary Leadership Award. Both awards are named in honor of former deans of the School of Christian Ministries and were bestowed upon their namesakes at the premiere SCM reunion.
Emmanuel College Alumna Mollie Walton Corbett (’95) sang “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch of Game 5 of the World Series on Nov. 1. Her performance was viewed by more than 50,000 fans in Texas Rangers Stadium and broadcast to millions of television viewers.
Despite the massive crowds, Corbett says she found herself surprisingly calm when the big moment came.
