Last Thursday, March 14, at 6:00 pm, Oklahoma Wesleyan University dedicated its latest addition, The Robert and Joyce Campbell Science Building, in honor of the Campbell’s service to the university.
Bob and Joyce Campbell are loved and appreciated by their family, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and the
Bartlesville community. They have three children, one daughter and two sons, and eight beloved grandchildren. Bob taught in the university’s science department from 1980-1987, and served on the Board of Trustees since 1990, and where he also served as Chairman of the Board and as Chairman of the Academic Affairs Committee. He is also well known in the community for his time at Phillips 66, where he was awarded over 50 patents. The new science building is aptly named after the Campbells for their contribution to science and to the community.
Dr. Charles Drake, fellow scientist of Dr. Campbell, began the dedication ceremony, and he was followed by Mr. Roger Metcalf, Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Dr. Everett Piper, Oklahoma Wesleyan University president. Dr. Steve Babby, the District Superintendent of the Pacific Southwest Region of The Wesleyan church, also spoke on behalf of The Wesleyan Headquarter, followed by a tour of the building, which concluded the dedication ceremony. The Robert and Joyce Campbell Science Building is aptly named, as it is a building honoring a past generation of scientists, and preparing the next one.
