About the Guy D. Newman Honors Academy
Since its first cohort of students graduated in May 1965, the multidisciplinary honors program has prepared young people to be leaders in a variety of fields including law, politics, business, ministry, government, medicine, education, economics, psychology and social work. More than 400 students have graduated from the program since its inception.
Previously the Douglas MacArthur Academy of Freedom, the program was founded in 1962 under the leadership
of Dr. Newman, who served as president of the university from 1955 to 1973.
Today, more than 50 years later, the Academy remains committed to the ideals upon which it was founded –
General MacArthur’s unwavering loyalty to America and Dr. Newman’s love for Howard Payne and its students.
