I hope everyone enjoyed Founders Day and Topper Homecoming as much as I did! God blessed us with two beautiful, meaningful days jam-packed with opportunities to reminisce with old friends and to celebrate with new ones. Dr. Coward’s address on “Founders, Finders, Keepers” was an inspiration to us all. Congratulations, Dr. Coward, on being named a “Faithful Daughter” by the Alumni Association. We are grateful to you for your leadership.
After much anticipation, I finally had the opportunity to see Dr. Meeks do the “Moses Rap.” Believe me, it was worth the wait!
Congratulations to Courtney Ivy on being crowned Homecoming Queen.
Hats off to the Lady Toppers for a decisive win over William Carey and to the men for putting up a great fight. The day ended Saturday on a moving note as we experienced the magnificence of Handel’s Messiah. Many in attendance have expressed to me their gratitude to BMC for providing such a stellar experience for our community. Thank you, Dr. Long, for envisioning and bringing to fruition an inspiring performance.
Please join me in praying for our nation as we have the opportunity tomorrow to exercise our right to vote. I encourage everyone to vote as an expression of your Christian values.
This is Missions Emphasis week in chapel. We were challenged this morning to go where God leads us in service to Him. Please pray for our students who are considering where God would have them serve next summer.
Tomorrow evening at 5:30 the President’s Cabinet will serve “Apples at Armstrong” to our students.
Please pray for me as I will be speaking at First Baptist Church in Okolona on Sunday.
Hebrews 13:20-21 expresses my prayer for you this week.
Dr. Barbara C. McMillin President
