Rainy Day Welcome!
Greetings to all on this rainy Monday!

We are happy to welcome today a great group of prospective students to Blue Mountain College. Preview Day begins at 9:00 in the SUB. Please take the opportunity to greet these students and their parents and to let them know how pleased we are that they have elected to visit our beautiful campus. Included on their agenda today is time for chapel at 10:00. They will be blessed, as we all will, by hearing Dr. Larry Robertson share God’s Word.

The baseball Toppers will be in action at home this week, playing Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday at BNA Park. The ladies will travel to Gulf Shores later in the week for tournament action.

I am thrilled to report today that both our men’s and women’s basketball teams have qualified for the SSAC post-season conference tournament. Both teams will travel to Montgomery, Alabama, with the guys playing on Wednesday and the girls on Thursday. A big congratulation goes to our coaches and players as they participate for the first time in tournament play. We are cheering you on!

In closing, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Elizabeth Crews has been hired for the 2015-2016 year as Associate Professor of English. Dr. Crews holds the Bachelor of Arts in English from Mississippi College, the Master of Arts in English from Mississippi College, and the Doctor of Philosophy in English from Georgia State University. She is a Eudora Welty Scholar and her major area in her doctorate was 20th Century American Literature of the South. Her minor area of concentration in her doctorate was Composition and Rhetoric focused on Composition Pedagogy. Dr. Crews taught at Madison Central High School and for the past 6 years has been Assistant Professor of English at Shorter University. She is a native of New Albany and the daughter of a BMC graduate, Pat Crews. Dr. Crews will add to the expertise in the Department of Language and Literature and BMC students will benefit from her expertise. We look forward to welcoming Dr. Crews to BMC this fall.

Join me this week in extending birthday wishes to Josh Crowder, Ben Adkins, Carla Gaillard, Kristen Milewski, Becky Russom, Emily Sewell, Vicky Spencer, Kelsey Scott, Jessica Jones, Laterea Hill, Mary Elizabeth Minchin, MaTavia Cox, Rebecca Kennedy, and Zachary Calderon.

May God’s blessing be yours this week.
