Welcoming many guests
Greetings to all on this chilly Monday!

I begin with a word of congratulations to the BMC Chorale for their outstanding performance Saturday evening with the North Mississippi Symphony Orchestra. Commemorating the music of World War I and World War II, the entire performance was stellar. Thank you, Dr. Long and Chorale members, for representing BMC so well.

Today begins another extremely busy week at Blue Mountain College. Several of us will be traveling to Jackson today to participate in the annual meeting of the Mississippi Baptist Convention. This year is a special one for BMC with our own Dr. Ronald Meeks delivering the convention sermon on Tuesday afternoon. Please say a prayer for Dr. Meeks as he prepares for this special service.

We look forward on Friday to welcoming many guests to our campus for our annual Founders Day celebration. Dr. Ron Madison will be our speaker during the 10:00 program. We will express our gratitude to our many scholarship donors at the annual scholarship luncheon following the program.

Amahl and the Night Visitors, a one-act opera, premiers this week with a matinee on Wednesday at 10:30 and performances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30. Our Fine Arts faculty and students have worked diligently to prepare for what will certainly be a magnificent evening of entertainment.

Students, let me encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to complete your required FAFSA paperwork tomorrow. Between 9:00 and 3:00 our financial aid staff will be available in the conference room of the SUB to assist you in completing this critical step in the registration process. Bring your laptop and your FSA ID username and password. Get this done tomorrow so you don’t have to worry with this later.

Make weekend plans now to participate in Saturday’s Topper Fest and in the presentation of our Homecoming Court. With a host of vendors selling their wares you should have no trouble checking some names off of your Christmas list. The Fest begins at 9:00 and the homecoming celebration happens at 12:30 in the MLB. Congratulations to our homecoming maids and to their escorts.

Topper athletes will be covering lots of ground this week; check the website for specifics. Thursday evening will afford the only opportunity for home action as the varsity women’s basketball team takes on Williams Baptist at 6:00 in Tyler Gymnasium.

Happy Homecoming!
