PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- Jean Cunningham was honored by her family and Alderson-Broaddus College on May 25 when the Wilcox Chapel bell tower was named the Jean Cunningham Bell Tower, made possible by a gift from her family.
A 1953 A-B graduate, Cunningham received an honorary doctorate from the college in 2008. She has served on its board of trustees and is chairwoman of its Renewing the Promise capital campaign.
Cunningham and her late husband, Jim, were deeply involved in Baptist ministries, and she is the minister of administration at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Charleston and also sings in the choir. She is a member of the General Board of American Baptist Churches USA.
