This May, the Board of Trustees unanimously conferred upon Dr. W. Sherrill Babb the title of President Emeritus. It is an honor worthy of his service and contribution to the University.
Dr. Babb served as president for 28 years and oversaw the development of the Langhorne campus, Wisconsin Wilderness campus, and international campuses, in addition to the proliferation of professional degrees and the launching of graduate programs at Cairn.
Dr. Babb had served as Chancellor since passing the baton of presidential leadership to Dr. Todd Williams in 2008. For the past six years, Dr. Babb and his wife Nayla have served as ambassadors for the University, representing Cairn and meeting with alumni around the U.S. and the world. Dr. Babb has also spoken at conferences and served as a consultant to many schools and ministries. He will continue to do so, remaining involved with the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) and serving on the Board of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA).
In his new role as President Emeritus, Dr. Babb will continue to serve as an advocate and ambassador for Cairn University. Dr. Todd Williams commented, “Sherrill Babb is as committed to the mission and vision of the University as ever. His ability to articulate who we are and what we do is very helpful to spreading the word about Cairn. I count him as a valuable resource, advocate, and friend. He is always a personal encouragement to me, and I am looking forward to continuing to benefit from his friendship and wisdom as we look now to the second century.”
