Good Morning,
As I write this morning I am intrigued by the strange light streaming into my office windows. Oh, wait—I believe it is SUNSHINE! I am thankful for a respite from the rain and for the potential of a bright, sunny afternoon. Along with sunshine this week brings several opportunities for brightening your day and your week. The Department of Fine Arts presents this week our much-anticipated production of John, His Story. Tonight and tomorrow night are preview nights for faculty and staff. The Wednesday matinee begins at 10:30 with evening productions Thursday through Saturday, all beginning at 7:30.

Best wishes to our men’s and women’s varsity basketball teams as they travel to Montgomery for the conference tournament. The men play Martin Methodist Wednesday morning; the ladies take on Loyola on Thursday afternoon.
I am sad to report that Nancy McDonald has resigned her position as Office Manager in Enrollment Services. Her last official day was February 16th. Nancy was a bright spot on campus and met everyone with a smile. We will all miss her but wish her well as she takes care of her family in East Tennessee.
Blessings for a great week!

“Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”
Billy Graham
1918-2018

Today Blue Mountain College joins our nation in celebrating the life and legacy of evangelist Billy Graham. Those of us of a certain age can no doubt recall experiencing the convicting power of the Holy Spirit even over the airwaves as we watched Dr. Graham deliver the Gospel to thousands on one of his many televised crusades. I had the blessing of attending one of those crusades and hearing that unforgettable voice once in person. As he often did, the Reverend Graham instructed that the buses would wait as hundreds responded to the invitation to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. May Dr. Graham’s life of integrity and unwavering commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ be an inspiration to us all.

Good Monday Morning!

I am excited to announce this morning that Dennis Swanberg will be the guest speaker at the Blue Mountain College 3rd Annual Scholarship Gala. The event will be held in the Modena Lowrey Berry Auditorium on Friday, April 20, 2018.

Swanberg served the local church in pastoral ministry for 23 years. In 1995, Dennis took a leap of faith when he stepped down as church pastor and stepped up to the microphone on stages and platforms all across America and the world.

“The Swan” soon became “AMERICA’S MINISTER OF ENCOURAGEMENT,” a job he takes
seriously as he continues to speak to about 150 organizations, faith-based groups and corporations every year. He hosted two successful TV series, authored 9 books, and created over two dozen DVD/CD productions.

This year’s Scholarship Gala will also celebrate the impact of Dr. Bettye Rogers Coward and Dr. Bobby P. Martin upon the College with the renaming and dedication of the education building as Coward – Martin Hall. We are delighted to bestow this honor on these two very special individuals and look forward to celebrating with them on April 20.

What a weekend it was for Topper fans! Congratulations to our Topper archers who were ranked fourth overall out of 29 teams competing in Las Vegas. Archer Alexis Platt brought home the silver in women’s basic bow; she and Carson Hall partnered to bring home gold in the basic bow mixed team event. On the hardwood, our varsity men stunned nationally ranked Dalton State with a huge win on Saturday night at Tyler Gymnasium. Come out Saturday and cheer on both varsity teams as they take on William Carey for Senior Day. If you haven’t been to a home game, this is your last chance to watch the Toppers and enjoy the great atmosphere created by Blue Sound and our great cheer team.

Best wishes to our Topper softball team as they begin their season at Freed-Hardeman tomorrow. Go, Toppers!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
