At a celebration of Belmont’s 125 Hours of Service Week on Friday, Nov. 13, Councilmember Burkley Allen, of Metro Nashville’s 18th District, presented Vice President of Development and External Relations Dr. Perry Moulds with a proclamation to recognize Belmont’s 125th anniversary.
To attendees who participated in the week’s activities Dr. Moulds said, “Is it a great day to be at Belmont, or what? It is such a blessing to be at a university like this and be among folks like you who choose to give of themselves like this.”

The proclamation closes by saying, “We, the signatories hereunder, being Members of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, do hereby join in the celebration of [Belmont’s] 125 years of academic excellence and empowering lives of purpose.”
