Passing of a former University President

Posted in on March 24, 2017

Former Crandall University President, Rev. James (Jim) Webber, passed away on Thursday, March 23rd at the age of 82.  Rev. Webber was President of the University (then known as Atlantic Baptist College) from 1983-1985.  He also served as a member of the University’s Board of Directors for several years.

We are saddened to hear of his passing but are grateful for his legacy. His love for our students and his commitment to the University’s mission and to the wider Christian community will be remembered.  Our sympathies extend to the Webber family at this time.
