On February 5, 2013, Dean Timothy George presented the distinguished M.Div. Alumni Award to Janeth Norfleete Day. George noted that Day was a member of the very
first entering class of students at Beeson Divinity School. She flourished in her studies
and went on to earn a Ph. D. in New Testament from Baylor University. Day returned
to Beeson and was a member of the faculty until she retired 2009. Over the
course of her career, she taught biblical studies—both Greek and Hebrew—and
spiritual formation. Throughout her time on the divinity school faculty, her
love for her students was deeply evident. You can watch the presentation and hear Day's acceptance here.
