Surprise 70th birthday celebration held

Dr. Dale W. Manor, professor emeritus of Bible and archaeology at Harding University, was honored June 1 with a surprise birthday party for his 70th birthday. Dr. Jim Carr (center left), representing state Rep. Les Eaves, presents Manor (center) with a citation from the Arkansas House of Representatives. Carr, on behalf of Sen. Jonathan Dismang, had earlier presented Manor with a citation from the Arkansas Senate. The citations recognized Manor for his years of service as a minister, his teaching and mentoring students, his contributions in the field of biblical archaeology, his scholarship in editing journals and authoring papers, and his contributions to Arkansas. Pictured with them are several of the guests at the dinner. Manor’s wife, Sharon, is holding the citation from the Arkansas Senate.
