Were we not blessed in great ways this weekend—two great commencement services and then a beautiful Mother’s Day! Our pastor yesterday encouraged us to affirm, acknowledge, and appreciate all that our mothers have done for us. In addition to reflecting on the love of my own mama, of my Aunt Lillian, of “Mom,” and Sam’s “Mimi,” I was reminded of all the great women who gladly and selflessly assumed the role of “on campus” mother to so many over the long history of BMC. From Sarah Holmes Lowrey to Modena Lowrey “Mother” Berry to Lottie Palmer Donnell to May Hall Buchanan to Sadie Lee Clark Wells to Frances Tyler to Lucille Travis—the list could go on and on. We affirm, acknowledge and appreciate the legacy of these godly women and their influence on the lives of countless Blue Mountain College students.
Here’s a special “shout out” to our fantastic faculty and staff, to the National team, and to the MMI team for going all out to make Saturday a wonderful day. If you would like to view the service, you can still do so by going to our website: http://www.bmc.edu/graduation_video.asp
To conclude, I’d like to remind everyone to please keep in mind the importance of our Annual Fund initiative. The College needs the support of our alumni and friends to finish strong this fiscal year. Your contribution will indeed make a difference. Thank you.
