The Leonard S. Smith School of Religion
On behalf of the Virginia Baptist State Convention, we would like to congratulate our former President Dr. Leonard N. Smith as he has become a part of the institutional history of our beloved school on the hill. He has invested tireless and selfless energy towards religious education, and this esteemed honor reveres the sacrificial commitment he has made to higher education. Our convention deeply cherishes the rich history between the VBSC and VUL. Many blessings upon you sir as countless lives will be transformed for years to come because of your genuine Christian witness!
