Aimee Niles was selected by the NTS Faculty to represent the Class of 2013 by delivering the CORLETT SENIOR SERMON on commencement Sunday. The other two Corlett finalists were Levi Jones and Danny Quanstrom.
The CORLETT SENIOR SERMON is an annual tradition at NTS. The late Mr. Eric A. Mabes, a prominent Kansas City Realtor, established the Corlett Senior Sermon Award in the interest of developing an incentive for more effective preaching. He sponsored the award from 1945 to 1966. In 1966, Dr. and Mrs. L. T. Corlett, as a symbol of their continuing interest in the future ministry of the church, assumed the sponsorship of this award. Several years ago, Mr. Wes Blachly took over sponsorship of this important annual tradition in the life of NTS, permanently endowing the award and sermon series.
You can listen to the sermons of all three Corlett preachers on the NTS website listed under the month of April at nts.edu/chapel-spring-2013.
