DR. REX M. HORNE, JR.

INTERIM HEAD OF SCHOOL

INTERIM HEAD OF SCHOOL

Baptist Prep Board of Trustees has started the process of planning a national search for a permanent head of school.  It is our intention to undertake this effort with input, involvement and support from our Baptist Prep family - teachers, administrators, parents and students - with a goal of naming a new head of school in the spring for the 2020-2021 school year.

 

As we work through this transition process, we felt it necessary that the school be led by an able and godly leader.  The board is pleased to announce Dr. Rex M. Horne, Jr. as interim head of school. A former university president and pastor known for his vision and leadership, Dr. Horne will be joining the Baptist Prep family this week.

 

“I believe there are bright days ahead for Baptist Prep and look forward to seeing God’s plan unfold this year,” Horne says.

 

Horne served as president of Arkansas’ Independent Colleges and Universities from July 2015 to July 2019. He was president of Ouachita Baptist University (2006-2015) and senior pastor of Little Rock’s Immanuel Baptist Church (1990-2006).

  

Horne served as president of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention (1995-1997) and as a trustee of Ouachita Baptist and Lyon College. He served on Baptist Health's board of trustees for 25 years and was on Southern Bancorp's board of directors (2008-2013). Horne was a columnist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for 10 years and hosted Conversations, a live talk show which appeared weekly on Victory Television Network. Horne continues to serve on the state advisory board for Child Advocacy Centers.

 

He is married to Becky Horne, and they have four adult children and 13 grandchildren, three of whom attend Baptist Prep.
