Area Resident Receives Fellowship at Columbia Seminary Commencement


Decatur, GA.— Former Charlotte-area resident Charles Davis Hankins received the Master of Divinity degree and was presented the Harvard A. Anderson Fellowship on May 14 during commencement exercises of Columbia Theological Seminary. The Anderson Fellowship was established by the Rev. and Mrs. Harvard A. Anderson of Orlando, Florida. The fellowship is awarded to the graduating student determined by the faculty to have the greatest potential for future academic achievement. Hankins holds the B.S. from North Carolina State in Raleigh and will begin Ph.D. studies this fall in the Hebrew Bible program at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Hankins is one of 92 students who received diplomas from one of Columbia’s five degree programs during commencement exercises. Columbia Theological Seminary, established in 1828, is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA). xxx
