Good Morning,

I hope that all of our moms enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday and that everyone found some time to rest after a marvelous day here on the hill on Saturday. Congratulations once again to each member of the Class of 2015! We feel your absence even today as the summer lull has already settled in.

Allow me to express my gratitude to all who contributed in some way to the success of the two services on Saturday. First, hats off to our stellar faculty for inspiring, challenging, and encouraging each student to stay the course and finish well. I can’t say enough about each of you. Your investment in the lives of these students is life-changing. May God bless each of you for heeding the call to teach, to mentor, and to care.

Kudos to Sharon Enzor, Dale Cutrer, Sheila Freeman, Susie Brady, Sonia Sanders, and Christina Smith for managing the myriad academic issues leading up to commencement.

Congratulations to Jack Moser and Tommy Peters for seeing that each student was in his/her appointed place. Nancy McDonald, Anna Quinn, and Terri Stanford represented our Alumni Association beautifully. Pam Bowman did an outstanding job of planning for and hosting all of our guests, including those who were part of the platform party.

Joan Herrington, Jean Harrington, Amy Thurmond, Susie Brady, Dale Cutrer, Nancy Byrd, Christina Smith, Sonia Sanders, Chris Driskell, Nancy McDonald, Duane Bullard, Tracy Moser, Hailey Horne, and Pam Pharr were excellent greeters, while Lynn Gibson, Lavon Driskell, Taylor Clark, Brad Hill, and Curt Fowler made sure that graduates and guests reached their destinations efficiently and comfortably.

Thanks to Joyce Peters, Rita Newby, and Ann Snyder - caps and gowns were distributed and collected without a hitch. Dot Locke and Renita Gossett manned the campus store so that grads and their families could take home “alumni” t-shirts. Emma Ainsworth, Danny McKenzie, Kevin Barefield, David Harrell, and Jim Gossett ensured that the day was captured for posterity on paper, in photographs, and on the web.

Many thanks to Johnnie Armstrong, Doug Bain, Jim Andre, and Ronald Meeks for leading us in and out so smoothly. Darwin Brooks, Laura Long, Greg Long, and Jerri Lamar Kantack blessed us through their musical talents, setting the tone for two beautiful services. Congratulations to Dr. Teresa Arrington upon her retirement from BMC.

The day was enhanced by the beauty of the campus and by the delicious refreshments served at the reception. Please join me in thanking Joey Etheridge and the NMR team and Deborah Smith and Chef Brett of the MMI team.

And last, but certainly not least, a huge thank you to Dr. Futral for his outstanding and memorable messages (look out for those oranges!).

Saturday was a special day for some of our staff because of family members who became graduates of BMC. Deborah Cook celebrated with her son Bryan, Annabeth Barnes celebrated with her mother Karen, and Kayce Carr celebrated with her husband Seth. Beverly Hickey’s son Kyle received the master’s of music degree from the University of Mississippi.

Another of our own earned recognition for completing a graduate degree at Ole Miss on Saturday. Austin Kimbrough received his master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Personnel.

All in all, it was a wonderful day—a day on which the favor of God rested. His mighty hand stayed the storm, blessing us with a lovely day on which to consider all the many ways in which He has ordered our steps throughout 2014-15. Thanks be to God!

Later today, we will welcome to our campus the first of several volunteer groups who will be serving on our campus this summer. Please join me in making the volunteers from Pocahontas Baptist Church feel welcome and appreciated. On Friday we will host a group of visitors from Chewalla Baptist Church, where Delise Teague is a member.

Friday will be the first of several “casual days” as well as the first Friday on which we will close at 3:30 (through August 7).

I will be traveling to Jackson tomorrow to meet with the Nominating Committee of the MBC. Please keep me in your prayers.

Greetings to each on you this Wednesday afternoon!

I was out of town on Monday and missed the opportunity to wish each one well as the process of taking and grading finals began. I pray that everyone is holding up as we near the finish line. We look forward to Dr. Jim Futral being with us on Saturday as we conclude what has been an outstanding year at BMC. We trust that it will be a day of great celebration for each of our 2015 graduates, their families, and friends. Included in the largest graduating class to date (approximately 160) are our first four students to complete the business administration program online. Kudos to each of them for this special accomplishment!

The close of another academic year always brings with it a host of transitions, several of which have already been announced. Dr. Teresa Arrington will be recognized in the 10:00 service Saturday as she begins her retirement from BMC. Michelle Hall, Director of Financial Aid, will be leaving the College in June as she and her family will be relocating to Kansas. Kevin Barefield will transition from coaching softball to coaching golf, while retaining his role as Director of Information Technology. Please join me in wishing each of these members of the BMC family the best as they assume new roles, some here and some in new places.

May God order our steps toward a strong finish to the 2014-15 year!

Greetings on the first day of “Dead Week” at BMC!

The Mountaineer has been distributed, as has the Mountain Breeze. Awards have been presented. Caps and gowns are being picked up, and seniors are preparing their senior week chapel presentations. The commencement season is in full swing! Let’s focus our energies on finishing strong as we count down to May 9.

Tonight we will celebrate the accomplishments of our Topper athletes at 7:00 in Modena Lowrey Berry Auditorium. Tomorrow night the auditorium will be the site for the spring Chorale concert beginning at 7:30.

MMI Dining will host on Wednesday a reception for faculty and staff from 2:30 until 3:30 in Ray Dining Hall.

Today’s senior chapel was a special event which concluded with the class planting a tree in honor of Dr. Betty Hearn. Thank you, seniors, for this most appropriate tribute to our beloved Dr. Betty.

In closing, allow me to share with you news regarding two transitions. Danny McKenzie, our golf coach, SID, and public relations assistant director, will conclude his tenure at BMC in June. Silvia Thompson, library technical assistant, will conclude her time here in May. Both are departing to enjoy retirement and to spend more time with family. We are thankful for both Danny and Silvia and pray God’s blessing on them as they begin a new chapter of their lives.

May God bless each of you with a productive week!

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.
