Pleasant Opportunities
Good Afternoon,

With a particularly hectic week underway, I’m bringing you this Monday Message a little behind schedule. I hope that all is well with each of you at this mid-week point. My week has already afforded me two very pleasant opportunities. Yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and greeting a host of great golfers at the first annual Jim Futral Golf Tournament sponsored by Blue Mountain College at the legendary Old Waverly course in West Point. More than 125 golf enthusiasts enjoyed a stunningly beautiful day on the links. Those landing a place atop the leader board took home some nifty BMC gift items; everyone left having made some great memories and looking forward to next year’s event. Many thanks to Jody Hill, Nancy Grisham, Nancy Byrd, Kevin Barefield, Tommy Vinson, Randy Bostick, and Rex Yancey for planning a stellar inaugural event in honor of our very own Jim Futral.

My evening concluded yesterday with opening night of the BMC Fine Arts Department production of Little Women. I always enjoy our productions, but I must say that the performance last night was extraordinary! I encourage you to make plans to attend on Thursday, or Friday evening at 7:30 in Garrett Auditorium. Little Women was one of my favorite “reads” as a teen; the musical stage version does not disappoint. Thank you, Dr. Kantack, cast, and crew, for staging this classic with such excellence.

Congratulations go to our women’s Cross Country team for another noteworthy performance over the weekend, finishing second overall in the UAH meet in Huntsville. BMC’s Elle Hamilton finished fifth in a field of 123 and has been named the SSAC runner of the week. Great job, Toppers!

Our golfers and JV baseball players are both in action tomorrow; the XC team heads to Clinton on Friday.

We will close out this week with a very important day on Friday as our full Board of Trustees will convene for their fall meeting. Prior to the meeting, at 8:00 on Friday morning, Dr. Thad Moore will lead our trustees in their quarterly prayer session in room 117 of the Education Building. Faculty, staff, students, and friends are invited to participate in the prayer session, which will conclude by 8:45.

This morning several members of Koinonia led our weekly prayer session in the Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium. Mark your calendars now to be a part of this special campus-wide call to prayer next Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. in the auditorium.

Thankful to be a part of this special place,
