Spring Break Ahead
Happy Monday Morning!

Winter snowfall on Saturday gave way to spring sunshine on Sunday, giving us a glimpse yet again of our Creator’s artistry and omnipotence!

It was great to see our Alumni Association Board of Directors on campus Saturday; lots of great ideas were generated.  Many thanks to association president Audrey Caldwell and to alumni director Lea Bennett for their work in planning a productive day.

A huge word of congratulations goes out today to Coach Lavon Driskell.  Coach Driskell was named TranSouth women’s Coach of the Year.  Anna Brooke Page was named Newcomer of the Year.  Anna Brooke and Jessi Hayles were both named to the All-TSAC first team; Kati Prince received honorable mention.  From the men’s team, Jarvis Fisher was selected to the All-TSAC second team; Kevin Daniels and Vladimir Filipovic were chosen to the All-Freshmen team.  We are proud of all of our Toppers!

I hope all who attended last week’s production of Forever Plaid enjoyed it as much as I did.  If you were there Tuesday evening you witnessed my theatre debut as a pianist.  My first piano teacher, Rita Clemmer Braddock, just happened to be in attendance and was pleased.  Thanks, guys, for the “help”!

Lea Bennett is our chapel speaker today.  Rebekah Ray, Marketing and Donor Relations officer with the Mississippi Baptist Foundation, will speak to us on Friday.

In observance of Employee Appreciation Day, all faculty and staff are invited to come by the Office of the President between 10:30 and 11:30 today to pick up a small memento as a token of gratitude for all that you do.

Sonia Sanders, Assistant to the Registrar, has officially begun her maternity leave.  Let’s keep Sonia and family in our prayers as they anticipate baby boy’s arrival in the next few days.

Please pray for me as I will be traveling next week to do SACS work on another campus.  Monday messages will resume on March 18.

Next week the campus will pause to observe a much-needed spring break.  Let’s pray that this time away will be safe and restful for all.

Have a great week!
