Seniors, this one is for you. This week you will turn in your last papers, make your final presentations, and take your last final exams. I ask everyone who is reading this message now to pause and say a prayer for our graduates. Pray that they will stay focused and finish strong. Pray that they will savor their last week on this beautiful campus, finding time to pause and reflect on what Blue Mountain College has meant to them. Pray that they will know the joy of a job well done, and pray that they will have a profound sense of peace about where God is taking them next. Seniors, have a blessed week. We are thankful for you.
We are looking forward to a great day on Saturday when, for the first time, we will hold two commencement services. Candidates for the B.A. and the B.S. degrees will receive their degrees in the 10:00 service. Candidates for the B.S. in Education and the Master of Education will be awarded their diplomas in the 2:00 service. A reception for all graduates will follow the morning service. I will have the privilege of addressing both groups.
A special word of congratulations goes to sophomore Kacie Harris, who has been awarded a Mississippi Rural Physicians Scholarship for post-graduate study at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Kacie, a biology major and cross-country runner from Tupelo, is the second BMC student to earn the scholarship in recent years. Way to go, Kacie!
I will be traveling tomorrow to the MAICU meeting at Millsaps.
It is another special week on campus, bringing to a close what has been a great year on the Hill. So many have done so much to contribute to a successful year. Faculty, you have planned, taught, counseled, encouraged, and supported—well done! Staff, you have processed, prepared, listened, and managed—great job! I am thankful for each of you.
Soli Deo Gloria!
Dr. Barbara C. McMillin President
