Good Afternoon, We are past the half-way point of another week; I hope that the half we have just finished has been productive for all. We were blessed on Monday by the company of so many of our Northeast Mississippi pastors. Last evening afforded the opportunity to greet another special guest as former University of Southern Mississippi punter Luke Johnson encouraged our athletes to focus their efforts on glorifying God.
I had the privilege last night of addressing the New Albany Pilot Club in conjunction with members of area Anchor Clubs. I appreciate all who attended, including a number of BMC alums.
Allow me to encourage everyone to come out Friday afternoon from 2:00 until 6:00 or Saturday morning from 10:00 until 2:00 for an “elegantly different” fundraising fashion show in Garrett auditorium. Clothing from the CABI line will be available for order, and you will get to see the beautiful attire that the ladies in the BMC Chorale will wear in concert this fall.
Students, just a reminder—Friday is the deadline to apply for membership in the Blue Crew. Liz, John, Adam, and Lynn need you on the Crew!
I conclude today with some very exciting news. Yesterday the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings of colleges and universities were released. Last year BMC was ranked 22nd in the South in the top tier of the regional college category; this year we are ranked 7th! In the “Best Value” category BMC is ranked #2 in the regional college category (South). Congratulations to our outstanding faculty, staff, and students for this impressive showing.
But wait—there’s more! I am pleased to confirm that the GROW BMC fall goal of 565 students has been met and surpassed for a record high enrollment. Thanks be to God for this tremendous blessing! Of this number, 26 are graduate students and 320 are residential. Soli Deo Gloria!

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. II Peter 3:18
