A Message from the President

Alumni & Friends 

Dear Member of the Westminster Community,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the death of Bruce Harris, ’76, on Sunday, December 16.  Mr. Harris was the president of The Callaway Bank, and his father, O. T. Harris, and uncle, John Harris, are Trustees Emeriti of Westminster College.  According to an article in the March 7, 2008, Columbia Business Times, “Harris orchestrated some of the biggest changes in Callaway Bank’s history, including an aggressive expansion into Boone County, and the bank has more than doubled in size in the eight years he’s been president.”

Bruce was a loyal Westminster alum who loved the College.  He was also a strong community leader and dear friend to many of us in the Westminster family.  With his family, we will miss him deeply.

The visitation is scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, December 18), at Maupin Funeral Home.  Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday at the First Presbyterian Church.  A link to Mr. Harris’s obituary is included below:
