The Armour Family Therapy Lecture Series is made possible by a gift from retired faculty members Dr. Mary Ann Armour and Dr. Rollin Armour. Dr. Mary Ann Armour retired from Mercer in 1998 as associate professor and co-director of the master's program in family therapy, which she founded at Mercer in 1983. Dr. Rollin Armour retired in 1998 as a professor and former chair of the Christianity Department. He also served as dean of the College of Liberal Arts from 1980-84.
