The Board of Directors of Bells for Peace shares its profound sadness over the passing of Dr. David T. Shannon. As an integral Director of the non-profit charity, Dr. Shannon will be sorely missed by each of us who has felt his energy and commitment.
Bells for Peace was one of Dr. Shannon’s special passions during the past several years. The organization represented an opportunity to continue a legacy of excellence that will promote and preserve Historically Black Colleges and Universities, especially his own, Virginia Union University. He was gratified to be a part of an endeavor that will bolster opportunities for African Americans for future generations. Dr. Shannon radiated God's love for all people and was un-selfish in his drive to uplift everyman. His kindness and positive outlook reflected the "Holy Spirit" that abounded in him.
