Greetings to all on a beautiful Tuesday! I was away from campus on Day One of Exams, but I understand that some of the stress was reduced with a visit to the “petting zoo” on Monday afternoon. I trust that this option helped alleviate some of the tension of yesterday’s finals and provided students an opportunity to relax a bit before hitting the books in preparation for today. Best wishes to all for a positive and productive finish to finals week.
Of course, this week culminates in the most-anticipated event of any academic year: commencement. We will celebrate with approximately 136 BMC graduates on Saturday with two services, one at 10:00 and the other at 1:00. Vice President for Campus Services at Mississippi State and former Lieutenant Governor Amy Tuck will deliver our commencement address at each service. Congratulations, graduates!
Best wishes to our Topper baseball and softball teams as they compete this week at the SSAC conference tournament in Montgomery, Alabama.
Please join me in wishing JV XC coach Page Rowland Thorn the best as she leaves her position at BMC to focus on her graduate studies. We are pleased to welcome as our new JV coach a familiar face: Heather Duley will assume leadership of this team immediately. Welcome back, Heather!
Since last fall Coach Harvey Childers has served capably and graciously as our interim athletic director. Please join me in thanking Coach Childers for his service to Blue Mountain College. We will look forward to welcoming new AD Will Lowrey later this month.
Blessings to all for a wonderful conclusion to academic year 2017-18.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. II Peter 3:18
