In his Fall Study 4-week series at Centenary College, past college pres Dr. Webb will pay tribute to eight people who have inspired, lifted, and shaped him during his 80 years, says Amy Giglio. In his own words, “Eavesdroppers may be engaged, enchanted, enriched, encouraged and entertained!”

Donald Webb was born in 1926 in a Welsh mining village. Scholarships took him to a good school and Cambridge University. He served as a Royal Navy officer in World War II, and finally as captain of the minesweeper HMS Switha. In 1958, Don, his wife Renee, and their children journeyed to America where he trained for the ministry. His degrees include a Masters of Divinity and a Ph.D. in theology, literature and psychology. From 1977 to 1991 he was President of Centenary College of Louisiana. He lives in Shreveport and is an active community volunteer.
