BETHANY – After 13 years of service as the Chairman of the Board of Regents at Southwestern Christian University, Dr. Dan Beller announced his retirement on May 14, 2010. “At my age, I knew it was time for me to retire and let our Vice-Chairman,
David Burrows, assume the responsibilities”, said Beller. “I love this university immensely and will continue to support and assist in fundraising efforts moving forward. I know the university is in great hands with David Burrows as the Chairman and Dr. Ed Huckeby as president.”
A successful business man in the Enid, OK community, Burrows was Vice-Chairman of the Board of Regents prior to assuming the chairmanship and has served almost a decade as a board member.

Burrows’ agency has also won Oklahoma Agency of the Year, Financial Partnership of the Year, and Client Growth Champion awards, and has qualified for the coveted Chairman’s Inner Circle, awarded to the top 1% of the company.
“It is my desire to see Southwestern live out the full expression of the founding fathers’ vision and continue to build a Christian liberal-arts university of excellence”, Burrows said. “In the words of William Carey, ‘we will attempt great things for God and expect great things from God’.” Dr. Ed Huckeby, president of Southwestern Christian University, said that “David is a distinguished graduate of SCU whose love and devotion for the institution is evident. I look forward to working with him and our other board members to accomplish the quality enhancement and growth objectives we have set for the future.”
