Good Morning!

Watching and listening last evening as another round of inclement weather pressed through our area, I observed something distinctive about how a storm makes its presence felt here on the “mountain.” Those of you who reside here with me will agree that thunder here doesn’t simply clap or roar—it truly rumbles. It is as if the first reverberation sets off a sound effect that isn’t exhausted until the system is entirely spent. The rumble seems to begin deep in the storm clouds and then ricochet back and forth between hill and sky, between Armstrong and Lowrey, offering a memorable performance and yet another stunning display of celestial power. In response to all of this, I stand amazed yet again of our Lord, who with a simple command calms the wind and silences the storm (Mark 4:39).

After a stormy evening, we begin another busy week at BMC. Today we welcome participants in the State Preaching Conference. We pray for a productive and inspiring day for each of these special guests.

On Wednesday the BMC Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Greg Long, will begin their spring tour, which will include stops in south Mississippi and the Florida panhandle. For Dr. Long, Mrs. Laura Long, and the entire Chorale, we pray that their travels will be safe and that their performances will be truly worshipful experiences for all involved.

Our baseball and softball teams will also be on the road throughout the week. Congratulations to Coach Fowler and the baseball team for two great wins over a highly-ranked Auburn-Montgomery team over the weekend! Congratulations also to our men’s golf team for receiving the SSAC Sportsmanship Award. To receive such an award is an excellent testimony of your ability to conduct yourself with civility, character, and integrity in the heat of competition. Let’s offer a round of applause as well for golfer Scott Milam, who was named an All-SSAC golfer last week.

On Tuesday evening at 6:00 please come and show support for Thomas Rakestraw and Brandi Long as they present a joint senior recital in Garrett.

Birthday greetings this week are in order for Allison Rameriez, Kacie Alley, Angelica Hunt, Josh Cline, Nancy Huerta, Benecia Barkley, Carie Gayden, Anna Dixon, Micah Russell, Anna Ash, Dr. Mitzi Dunagan, Steven Wilbanks, Renita Gossett, Miss Johnnie Armstrong, and Rita Newby.

With mixed emotions I announce today that Joan Herrington will be leaving us this summer to relocate to North Carolina. Joan’s sweet spirit and encouraging ways will certainly be missed here at BMC. Please join me in thanking Joan for her more than seven years of service here at the College.

May God bless this new week at BMC!

Greetings,

Let us begin this week by focusing on the goodness of God and the many ways in which He bestows His favor upon us. Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us; establish for us the work of our hands—establish the work of our hands! Psalm 90:17

Counting “school days” only, twenty days remain until Commencement on May 9. Seniors, enjoy these remaining days. Our prayer is that you will finish strong. May the Lord establish the work of your hands! We will celebrate the accomplishments of these students at our annual awards day program on Friday at 10:00.

Today in chapel we will hear from assistant professor of biology Dr. Mitzi Dunagan.

Weather permitting, the baseball and softball diamonds at BNA Park will be busy this week with Topper action Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Check the website for times.

Wednesday will be a fun day on campus as Literacy on the Lawn returns to the Hill. We look forward to welcoming many young visitors to this special event.

I am especially excited this week about an event that will occur at 3:00 in the Faculty Parlor in Whitfield. DiDi Ruff Nicolau will be our guest speaker at a TACT-sponsored event called “Sweet Tea and Civility.” DiDi will be speaking on the life of her grandmother, BMC alumna Jessie Berry Doty. The story of DiDi’s grandmother, affectionately known as “Munny,” is a compelling and inspiring one. If your schedule permits, please come out to learn how civility characterized and shaped the life of Jessie Berry Doty.

A familiar face returns to campus today. We are pleased to welcome Chelsey Griffin back from maternity leave.

This past Saturday I enjoyed the company of several of our Nashville area alums. What a treat to hear from the Singing Belles! This Saturday several of us will be traveling to Huntsville to fellowship with graduates and to visit with prospective students from the North Alabama area.

Give the following folks a birthday greeting this week: Steven Colburn, Jade Albritton, Nathan Bailey, Trinity Faulkner, James Shemwell, Rolanda Tipler, Brandi Long, Johnathan Ogletree, Anna Davis, Emma Baxter, Page Rowland, Brittany Tallant, Drew Warford, Stephanie Rowell, Jordan Mixon, Gabrielle Malone, Jacob Russell, Dr. Johnny Mattox, and Dale Cutrer.

Good Morning!

He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!

I hope that you and your family enjoyed a beautiful Easter weekend in observance of the resurrected Lord.

This week marks the much anticipated arrival of our SACSCOC reaffirmation team on the BMC campus. Please join me in extending to these special guests a warm welcome to Blue Mountain College.

We will welcome Rob Chambers to campus Thursday evening to present a lecture on “The Establishment and Future of Israel in Hostile World.” Mr. Chambers is Senior Consultant with the Christian Action Commission in Jackson. The lecture, which begins at 6:30 in Berry Auditorium, is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and by Pi Gamma Mu.

Many BMC-ers are celebrating birthdays this week: Dr. Jeff Sweatt, Angela Wilbourn, Mary Dee Emerson, Bryana Davis, April Nicholson, Whitney Gunn, Vlad Filipovic, Jamieon Davis, Lee Pittman, Zach Gooch, Amanda Mask, Tucker Trumbo, Tori Baldwin, James Baker, Lisa Bradley, Mandy Koon, Deserae Farrell, and Cassidy Blaylock.

If you have not had the opportunity to cheer our baseball and softball teams on this season, Tuesday is your day! Both teams will be in action Tuesday afternoon at the BNA Sportsplex in New Albany.

Thursday afternoon at 3:00 in the SUB we will host the first annual BMC Research Day. Congratulations to each student whose scholarly endeavors will be featured at this inaugural event. Thursday evening our theatre students will be presenting a musical theatre showcase at 7:30 in Garrett.

We are pleased to have Rev. Philip Cooper as our chapel speaker today and Dr. Randy Bostick as our speaker on Friday.

I will be traveling to Jackson on Thursday afternoon and then on to Hattiesburg on Friday for the spring meeting of the Education Commission. On Saturday Nancy McDonald, Anna Quinn, and I will visit with our Greater Nashville area alums. Keep us and our teams who are traveling in your prayers.

Greetings on a sunny Monday morning!

The sun streaming into the Admin this morning heralds the beginning of week filled with opportunities. I will fast forward to Friday when our ministerial alumni will return to campus for MA Day. Since 1956 Blue Mountain College has been blessed with the privilege of equipping young men for their calling into the ministry. We are delighted to welcome this special group back to campus and look forward to hearing from Nicholas Hughes in chapel on Friday and from Dr. Tommy Vinson at the MA luncheon.

We will enjoy the presence of another special guest this week as Dr. Leora Duce returns to campus to participate in job preparation workshop sponsored by the Department of Business. Dr. Duce will focus on dressing and preparing for interview success at 8 a.m. on Thursday. Tomorrow Ryan Hutcheson will lead a session on resume building at 8 a.m.; on Saturday students will participate in a series of mock interviews.

A huge word of congratulations is in order today for our very own Shane Butler, who not only participated in the NAIA Division I All-Star basketball game this weekend but was named Most Valuable Player! What an honor for Shane and for BMC!

On Thursday evening Ciara Boyle will present her senior project at 7:30 in Garrett. Ciara has graced the Garrett stage with many a fine performance. We wish her the best on Thursday evening.

Keep our baseball and softball teams in your prayers as they will be traveling throughout the week. Go Toppers!

Be sure to offer a birthday wish to Julia Harrington, Eric Hunter, Derek Bailey, Taylor Campbell, Barrius Smith, Amanda Walker, Aaron Parmer, Paris Moreland, John Gory, DeShun Thomas, Jo Gilley, and Brittney Sullivan.

Many thanks to our QEP leaders who will be conducting discipline-specific information meetings today related to our Quality Enhancement Plan.

May God’s blessings be yours this week! May the light shine brightly for His glory on this Hill!

Dr. Barbara C. McMillin
President

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and he delighteth in his way.” Psalm 37:23
