Higher Ground
Good Morning,
 
Filling the hallway of Lowrey this morning was the hauntingly beautiful sound of classic hymns being played on a flute crafted from a piece of bamboo by one of our very own students, Chas Monaghan.  What a way to start the week!  The melody called to mind the hymnist’s prayer:  “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”  May that be our prayer as we begin the first full week of class at BMC.
 
Doesn’t it feel great to have our students back on campus!  May Spring 2013 be your best semester ever and may you pursue your studies with excellence, being diligent to think Christianly about your discipline and about how you will use new-found knowledge and skills to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
 
I am pleased to announce that Jack Moser has accepted the position of interim Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services.  Please join me in congratulating Coach Jack and in lifting him up as he serves the college in this important role.
 
Congratulations to Brandon Hughes for a fine junior voice recital last Thursday evening.
 
The Lady Toppers had a big win on Saturday over Mid-Continent; the men fought a hard fight that ended in an overtime heart-breaker.  Guys, we are very proud of you!  You played with heart, determination, and Topper Tenacity!
 
Thanks to all of our students, faculty, and staff who pledged to pursue the BMC Kindness Challenge this semester.  Today is MLK Service Day; opportunities abound to kick off your commitment to acts of kindness and service.  Many thanks to Mrs. Jean Harrington and the SDO4 team for organizing today’s activities.
 
Please pray for me as I will be traveling to Belhaven tomorrow for a meeting with MAICU presidents.
 
Topper Baseball is back- starting this weekend!  The season kicks off Friday as the Toppers take on the Belhaven Blazers at Smith-Wills Stadium in Jackson.  We hope to see many fans and alums there cheering on the team and enjoying the fellowship at the post game Bar-B-Q supper at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.  Contact Paige Harrell (pharrell@bmc.edu) to make reservations.
 
Finally, please pray for the Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees.  They will be meeting on campus on Friday.
 
Blessings to all for a rewarding day of service.
 
 
Dr. Barbara C. McMillin
President
