Congratulations to Professor Tom Reynolds, who is the 2018 recipient of the Roy M. Davidson Trust Award. Conferred by the Board of the United Church of Canada Foundation, the award recognizes excellence in teaching and scholarship in theological education.
The nomination was submitted by his faculty colleagues and former students at Emmanuel College, who described Tom as embodying their “finest aspirations in the integration of academy and church, scholarship and service, teaching and leadership.” He was praised as a prolific scholar, a popular teacher, a much sought after doctoral supervisor, and an academic administrator who shoulders an enormous workload as Vice-Principal. Yet he still finds the time and creativity to offer a ministry of music to his home congregation of St. Andrew’s United Church. Emmanuel College is delighted to celebrate this recognition of Tom’s outstanding contributions.
