March 14, 2018 – In less than one month the Eleventh Annual Bryan Opportunity Scholarship Program Dinner will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center at 6 P.M. on Thursday, April 19, 2018. This annual dinner benefits and honors the Bryan Opportunity Scholarship Program (BOSP), which makes Bryan College in Dayton, Tenn., accessible to academically qualified Tennessee students with significant financial need. Since Bryan College’s first BOSP dinner in 2008, this program has enabled 243 low-income Tennessee residents to receive a Bryan education.
The evening’s special guest singer Larnelle Harris has been honored with 5 Grammy Awards, 11 Dove Awards, 3 Male Vocalist of the Year Awards, a Silver Bell Award for Distinguished Public Service, a Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts in the state of Kentucky, and is a member of 3 halls of fame. Dinner attendees will enjoy the “larger-than-life stage presence” of the majestic tenor, accompanied by the Bryan College Chamber Singers.
Director of Advancement Janice Pendergrass says, “I’m so excited to have Larnelle Harris coming as our featured guest this year. I love his passion, his stage presence, his majestic tenor voice, and his authentic personality. I pray that his enthusiasm in worshipping Christ will be contagious and that we will all leave a little more intentional about our worship and our service to Christ. And yes, I pray that as our enthusiasm for Christ deepens that our support of students receiving a biblical worldview education broadens. I pray that through this event, Bryan will become even more empowered to educate students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today’s world.”
Bryan encourages you to attend this year’s BOSP dinner and enjoy the fellowship and program. Investing in the lives of Tennessee students who just need a little help to pursue their dreams is more than generosity: it is a legacy.
