Prices provide culinary gift to NOBTS students


New Orleans Seminary alumnus Nelson Price came to NOBTS’s North Georgia Campus Dec. 14 with two large pots of red beans and rice that he and his wife, Trudy, spent the morning (and much of the day before) preparing.

“I know New Orleans is famous for its red beans,” Price said. “I thought perhaps red beans and rice might appeal to their palettes.”

Price, a Mississippi native, attended Southeastern Louisiana University. He stayed to attend NOBTS. Price is pastor emeritus at Roswell Street Baptist Church in Marietta, where he served 35 years before his retirement in 2000. Roswell Street was home to the extension center from its beginning in 1979 until 1994.
