David Shannon’s Freed-Hardeman story began in 1985. He planned to attend a different university until he received an unexpected, encouraging visit from Freed-Hardeman’s 13th president, E. Claude Gardner. After visiting campus for the first time, Shannon knew that FHU was meant to be his home. He went on to study finance and Bible, serve as president of Phi Kappa Alpha and star in a one-act play during homecoming week with Tracie Barnes, who became his wife three years later in 1988.
Tracie also was very active on campus. She studied interior design, joined PKA, served as a Makin’ Music director, played intramural sports and worked on numerous homecoming floats. After David graduated in 1989, the couple was given an opportunity to go to Long Island, New York and work for the Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch. They served in that ministry for two years, and the Hills remain great mentors for them until this day.
During the next decades, David served as the preaching minister at East Gadsden church of Christ and Mt. Juliet church of Christ, where the Shannons added more life-long friends. He also has served as the chairman of the board for Georgia-Ann-King Charities, co-editor for THINK Magazine, board member for Focus Press and board development committee member for Heritage Christian University.
Tracie's life exemplifies using her service for God's glory. Whether as a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, foster parent, friend or volunteer dreaming about how to make her community better, she invests in people. As the first lady of FHU, you already will find her expanding her connections with FHU family, plunging into her new West Tennessee home through Leadership Chester County and other opportunities and meeting people around the country on the Presidential Trek (where she has led the creation of the prized bacon-on-a-stick).
The Shannon family includes: Colton Shannon (FHU Class of 2012) and his wife, Rachael Weaver Shannon (FHU Class of 2013), and their children, Max and Meryl; Lacie Shannon Haynes (FHU Class of 2014) and her husband, Clint Haynes (FHU Class of 2004); Rong Yang and Emilie Shannon. Foster children continue to play an important role in the extended Shannon family, also.
Fall 2017 enrollment at Freed-Hardeman University grew by 66 students with the total head count at all locations standing at 1,972, a 3.5 percent increase...
