Virtual Tour: Entergy Pavilion

Entergy Pavilion, Belhaven University Campus

|    

Belhaven University's outdoor Entergy Pavilion, honors the long-standing relationship between Entergy Mississippi and Belhaven University. The impressive stone structure in the center of the campus provides a beautiful setting for outdoor performances in theatre, dance and music, while affording the campus a unique and stunning focal point.

When not in use for performances, the nine fountain spouts will create dancing waters, synchronized to music. These unique features were constructed by the company that builds similar fountains for Walt Disney World and city centers around the world.

The Entergy Pavilion was provided in part through a generous lead gift from Entergy Mississippi and is dedicated in honor of five Entergy Mississippi Presidents, who have close ties to Belhaven University. Entergy Mississippi Presidents, Rex Brown (1936-1954), Baxter Wilson (1954-1970) and Donald Lutken (1970-1989) all served on the Belhaven Board of Trustees, while Don Meiners (1992-1999) and Carolyn Shanks (1999-Present) both have immediate family members who attended Belhaven University.
