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

Welcome back! I hope that everyone enjoyed the time away. With spring break behind us, we are now 54 days away from graduation. May 9 will be here before we know it!

I invite you to join me today in congratulating one special senior—Shane Butler. Shane has been named to the NAIA Division I All-Star basketball team and will represent BMC at the All-Star game in Kansas City this Saturday. Shane, we are very proud of you!

Today is the day many have been anticipating for quite a while: HeBrews is open! The doors opened at six this morning. Be sure to stop by and check out the cozy and comfortable setting while you enjoy a latte, frappe, or smoothie. They have sweet tea for those non-coffee drinkers. I also recommend the grilled cheese and bologna sandwich. J

Tomorrow evening Dr. Terry McRoberts, professor of music at Union University, will present a classical piano recital in Garrett auditorium beginning at 7:00. Dr. McRoberts is a gifted musician; I am sure that you will enjoy his performance.

Today in chapel we will have the opportunity to hear more about our Quality Enhancement Plan: CARE. On Friday we will have the great privilege of hearing from our very own Johnnie Armstrong. Keep Miss Johnnie in your prayers as she prepares to share words of encouragement with us on Friday.

Celebrating birthdays this week are Misti Roberts, Heather White, Reed Davis, Adam Seahorn, Jesse Taylor, Jonathan Crum, Lauren Treadaway, Ashley Johnson, Richard Rudasill, Michael Horton, and Zachary Stephenson, David Harrell, and Annabeth Barnes.

Our baseball and softball teams will be on the road this week, but the guys will be at home for action Friday night and Saturday. Our men’s golf team is participating in the William Carey University Invitational. Pray for safe travels and good play for all.

I look forward to seeing our Greater Memphis Area alumni this weekend at the annual scholarship luncheon.

With tomorrow being St. Patrick’s Day, we are sure to hear about the “luck of the Irish.” Let’s use this celebration as a reminder that “luck,” sometimes defined as a force that brings good fortune, is actually God at work bringing blessings into our lives.

You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:6-8

Dr. Barbara C. McMillin
President

Greetings to all on this rainy Monday!

We are happy to welcome today a great group of prospective students to Blue Mountain College. Preview Day begins at 9:00 in the SUB. Please take the opportunity to greet these students and their parents and to let them know how pleased we are that they have elected to visit our beautiful campus. Included on their agenda today is time for chapel at 10:00. They will be blessed, as we all will, by hearing Dr. Larry Robertson share God’s Word.

The baseball Toppers will be in action at home this week, playing Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday at BNA Park. The ladies will travel to Gulf Shores later in the week for tournament action.

I am thrilled to report today that both our men’s and women’s basketball teams have qualified for the SSAC post-season conference tournament. Both teams will travel to Montgomery, Alabama, with the guys playing on Wednesday and the girls on Thursday. A big congratulation goes to our coaches and players as they participate for the first time in tournament play. We are cheering you on!

In closing, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Elizabeth Crews has been hired for the 2015-2016 year as Associate Professor of English. Dr. Crews holds the Bachelor of Arts in English from Mississippi College, the Master of Arts in English from Mississippi College, and the Doctor of Philosophy in English from Georgia State University. She is a Eudora Welty Scholar and her major area in her doctorate was 20th Century American Literature of the South. Her minor area of concentration in her doctorate was Composition and Rhetoric focused on Composition Pedagogy. Dr. Crews taught at Madison Central High School and for the past 6 years has been Assistant Professor of English at Shorter University. She is a native of New Albany and the daughter of a BMC graduate, Pat Crews. Dr. Crews will add to the expertise in the Department of Language and Literature and BMC students will benefit from her expertise. We look forward to welcoming Dr. Crews to BMC this fall.

Join me this week in extending birthday wishes to Josh Crowder, Ben Adkins, Carla Gaillard, Kristen Milewski, Becky Russom, Emily Sewell, Vicky Spencer, Kelsey Scott, Jessica Jones, Laterea Hill, Mary Elizabeth Minchin, MaTavia Cox, Rebecca Kennedy, and Zachary Calderon.

May God’s blessing be yours this week.

Dear Campus Community,

How grateful we are to see the sun shining brightly on the mountain today! The poet Shelley asked “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?” Let’s be encouraged that Spring can’t be too far behind!

We have a very busy week on campus. The spring musical, Songs for a New World, opens Tuesday night at 7:30 with performances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings in addition to matinees (see the website for more information on the matinee schedule). The softball team is in action at home today and Thursday. The baseball team will take the home field on Thursday also. Saturday is Senior Day in Tyler Gymnasium as both basketball teams will be in action against Martin Methodist. Keep all teams in your prayers as they also have away games this week. I encourage you to come out and support our actors and our athletes as they shine on the stage, the field, and the court.

We will have a very special day on campus Friday as our Board of Trustees gathers for its annual spring meeting. We are grateful for their service to BMC and pray God’s blessing on their work.

Dr. Emily Derrick will share with us in chapel today; the BSU ministry teams will lead us in worship on Friday.

With last week’s crazy weather, I did not post a Monday Message. So, here’s a belated birthday wish to Savannah Buck, Leslie Nicole Lewis, Crystal Trullet, Courtney Britton, Sarah Lowery, Jake Omedeo, William Carr, DeAundre Smith, and Kayla McMillen. Greetings this week go to Jacob Clayton Meeks, Courtney Vanderford, Mary Katherine Hathorn, Megan Elizabeth Watkins, Cassandra Miller, Annabelle Smith, Dr. Stewart Bennett, Cole McBride, Myra Jean Simmons, and Peyton Holland.

I close with a word of thanks to the great folks at First Baptist Church of Winona. I had the privilege yesterday of sharing an update on BMC with them in the morning service. Thank you, Dr. Mimms, for extending to me this invitation. I’d also like to thank the members of our Alumni Association Board for giving me the opportunity to share an update at their meeting on campus Saturday. Thank you, alums, for your faithful support of your alma mater!
