Welcome back! I hope that everyone enjoyed the time away. With spring break behind us, we are now 54 days away from graduation. May 9 will be here before we know it!
I invite you to join me today in congratulating one special senior—Shane Butler. Shane has been named to the NAIA Division I All-Star basketball team and will represent BMC at the All-Star game in Kansas City this Saturday. Shane, we are very proud of you!
Today is the day many have been anticipating for quite a while: HeBrews is open! The doors opened at six this morning. Be sure to stop by and check out the cozy and comfortable setting while you enjoy a latte, frappe, or smoothie. They have sweet tea for those non-coffee drinkers. I also recommend the grilled cheese and bologna sandwich. J
Tomorrow evening Dr. Terry McRoberts, professor of music at Union University, will present a classical piano recital in Garrett auditorium beginning at 7:00. Dr. McRoberts is a gifted musician; I am sure that you will enjoy his performance.
Today in chapel we will have the opportunity to hear more about our Quality Enhancement Plan: CARE. On Friday we will have the great privilege of hearing from our very own Johnnie Armstrong. Keep Miss Johnnie in your prayers as she prepares to share words of encouragement with us on Friday.
Celebrating birthdays this week are Misti Roberts, Heather White, Reed Davis, Adam Seahorn, Jesse Taylor, Jonathan Crum, Lauren Treadaway, Ashley Johnson, Richard Rudasill, Michael Horton, and Zachary Stephenson, David Harrell, and Annabeth Barnes.
Our baseball and softball teams will be on the road this week, but the guys will be at home for action Friday night and Saturday. Our men’s golf team is participating in the William Carey University Invitational. Pray for safe travels and good play for all.
I look forward to seeing our Greater Memphis Area alumni this weekend at the annual scholarship luncheon.
With tomorrow being St. Patrick’s Day, we are sure to hear about the “luck of the Irish.” Let’s use this celebration as a reminder that “luck,” sometimes defined as a force that brings good fortune, is actually God at work bringing blessings into our lives.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:6-8
Dr. Barbara C. McMillin President
