As I write this “late” edition of the Monday Message, I am being entertained by the sounds of students enjoying a beautiful spring afternoon. Kites are sailing, Frisbees are flying, and hammocks are swinging. It is good to be on the Hill on this lovely April day.
Here is a recap of some of the other events of recent days. Last Saturday Lea Bennett and I joined a great group of alums from the Greater Nashville area for fellowship over lunch. Many thanks to Frances Massey and Patsy Henry Highland for organizing this fine event. On Monday, Lea Bennett, Duane Bullard and I visited with a host of prospective students and friends of the College at events organized by Gary and Heather Linville. Thank you, Gary and Heather, for opening your home to us and for the opportunity to share the great BMC story.
Tuesday evening I was honored to be the speaker at ICC’s “Evening of Celebration Honoring Academic Excellence across the Curriculum.” Congratulations to each student who was recognized for his or her scholarly achievements!
Today I am traveling to William Carey University for the meeting of the MBC’s Education Commission. Please pray for safe travels and a productive meeting.
Kudos to the men’s golf team for setting a team record and for finishing in a tie for second place in the RedHawk Spring Classic at Canebrake Golf Club in Athens on Tuesday.
The baseball Toppers are on the road today and tomorrow; the women play at home both days. Come out and cheer them on!
Our own BMC Chorale will be in concert in chapel today. I know that their performance will be a blessing.
Enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead.
