Ricky Skaggs Concert and Homecoming, 2016

Ricky Skaggs Accepts ASCAP Country Music Award at Ryman on October 31, 2016
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Grammy-winning bluegrass and country artist Ricky Skaggs and bluegrass    singer-turned-country star Chris Stapleton were honored at the ASCAP Country Music Awards on     Monday night.

The performing rights organization honored their top country writers and singers during an awards show on Halloween night at the Ryman Auditorium featuring performances by Garth Brooks, Kelsea Ballerini and Trace Adkins.

A renowned mandolin player who has excelled at bluegrass, gospel and country music, Skaggs was presented with the ASCAP Founders Award and recognized for his pioneering contributions to music.

“I could have been born anywhere in the world, but God had a purpose for me to be born in Eastern Kentucky to hear the sounds of the mountains and the Stanley Brothers and Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe,” Skaggs said.

Homecoming, 2016 - Welcome Home!

Homecoming was a warm and gorgeous fall day - October 29, 2016

Many of you were on campus Homecoming Saturday to celebrate reunions, watch a great football game, and most importantly visit Women of Vision Showcase projects. What a great day!

Women of Vision Superwoman Leah Smith made sure everything was perfect for Homecoming!

It was difficult to see ALL the wonderful projects that Women of Vision has been working on during the past year.

Fite Administration Building Staff Breakroom

The Fite Administration Staff Lounge received a makeover from Women of Vision. Look at this beautiful new space! A new picnic area and prayer garden space was created outside Fite. Even the restroom received a needed face lift.


Can you identify the "Before" and the "After" pictures???


This is a preview of plans for the restrooms in Stokely.  Construction is slated to begin in May after students leave. The official new name will be "Presidential Lounge!" 

Other wonderful Women of Vision projects will be featured in a future blog post. But please know that your donations are being used in an amazing way all across our Carson-Newman campus. 

This Bible verse, found in the Campus Ministries House, 
is a fitting one for Women of Vision members.
