On Thursday, March 6, 2014, President Bill Armstrong notified the CCU community that the flag on campus would fly at half-staff to commemorate the life, death, and coronation of our dear friend Dr. David Beckman, who went home to heaven that morning.
Three-time president of the University, David Beckman lived a great life and had thousands of friends, including so many members of the CCU community. He was strong, dedicated, humble, a man of great personal charm. He set the standard for integrity in higher education. He never wavered in following Jesus.
The University has established this website to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Beckman. Information regarding Dr. Beckman's memorial service will be posted here as it becomes available. We also invite friends of Dr. Beckman to sign the online message book and share their favorite memories of Dr. Beckman; a man who's life impacted so many.
