If you were able to join us for the gala Friday evening then, like me, you are probably still recovering from having laughed so hard and so long at the humor of “The Swan.” Dr. Dennis Swanberg entertained us and inspired us as the keynote speaker for the third annual BMC Scholarship Gala. We are grateful to our many sponsors for “planting shade trees” at Blue Mountain College through their generous gifts. Scholarship donations are expected to pass $200,000! For this great blessing we say thanks be to God!
The list of individuals who volunteered their time and expertise to contribute to the success of this year’s gala is an extremely long one that includes faculty, staff, and students. To each of you I offer a heartfelt thank you for giving of your time and talents to this important cause. Outstanding leadership was provided by Jody Hill and Nancy Grisham with tremendous support from the planning committee, including Becky Benson of The Peoples Bank, Tommy Peters, Tommy Tapp, Emma Ainsworth, and Kevin Barefield.
Congratulations are in order for the award recipients who were announced at Awards Day on Friday. A special word of commendation goes to Dr. Stewart Bennett for being named the 2018 Faculty Member of the Year. Dr. Bennett is well-deserving of this very special recognition.
End-of-the-year events are winding down as we focus our attention now on the “big day.” Commencement is less than two weeks away. Seniors—stay focused and finish strong!
Tonight at 7:00 in Broach we will commission our summer missionaries and camp staffers. On Friday we will welcome to campus our Board of Trustees for their quarterly meeting. We will begin at 8:00 with a devotion and time of prayer led by Dr. David Hamilton in room 114 of Coward-Martin Hall. If your schedule allows, please come and participate in this special time of worship and intercession.
Please join me in welcoming to the BMC family Mrs. Brandi Bass to serve as Enrollment Services Assistant. Brandi is the wife of Tim Bass, pastor at Harmony Baptist Church in Walnut, and the mother of BMC student Britt Bass. Brandi begins work on April 30.
