Thank A Donor Day
Dear BMC Community,
Today and tomorrow we are all afforded the opportunity to thank our donors for their generous support of Blue Mountain College. Students, I encourage each of you to take time to write a note expressing your gratitude to those who are helping to fund your education. “Thank a Donor Day” tables with notecards are set up in the foyer of the Admin beginning at 9:00. Thank you, Kayce and Chelsey, for providing leadership for this event.

Tonight at 6:30 the movie The Case for Christ will be shown in Garrett auditorium. Plan to attend and bring a friend!

Thursday night the Miss BMC pageant will take place in the MLB at 7:00. Best wishes to all contestants!

Congratulations are in order for all members of the BMC community as we celebrate our campus being ranked #8 among regional colleges in the South by US News & World Report. BMC earned the number one spot in the Best Value category for the same region. We are grateful for this recognition of our commitment to academic excellence at an affordable price.

Topper fans everywhere have lots to cheer about these days. Our XC women finished 6th out of a field of 24, with our men finishing 11th out of a field of 20 last weekend at the meet sponsored by Christian Brothers at Shelby Farms. The competition included several Division I opponents. It was an impressive showing by our Topper runners. Andrew McDonald and Dejone Stemmett won the individual titles at the Lyon College invitational golf tournament. Our archers brought home 3 team gold medals at the USCA regionals, with Jessie Davis and Tanner Huffman setting state records with First Place wins. Bowler Austin Harris placed 22nd out of 102 bowlers at the Green River Classic in Campbellsville, Kentucky. Wow!

Show your support for these students athletes by cheering them on in person. Today at 1:00 our JV baseball team will play Martin Methodist here at home. On Saturday at 1:00 our softball girls will take on Ole Miss in Oxford. That will be a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Just a reminder—it is not too late to sign on as a Fine Arts Patron and show your support for our Chorale as they prepare for their Carnegie Hall debut next spring. Check with Dr. Long or Nancy Grisham for more details.

Please continue to pray for the campus revival on October 9-11. I know that many of you are gathering together regularly to pray for God to do a mighty work on our campus. Keep in mind that there is a prayer room on the third floor of the Admin where you can pray and leave requests for prayer.

We are grateful for Maria Teel being with us yesterday in chapel to tell her story.

Check out these cute young Toppers sporting their new T-shirts (our nephews Walker and Mance). J
