Greetings,

I hope everyone enjoyed the lovely fall weekend. A highlight of my weekend was worshipping at Germantown Baptist Church Sunday morning. The BMC Chorale partnered with the GBC choir to lead the congregation in a time of praise to our Lord. Duncan Schaefer was a featured soloist. Thank you to Greg Long and Laura Long for your leadership in arranging this opportunity.

I’m looking forward today to hearing Dr. Danny Sinquefield, pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Bartlett. Please pray for Bro. Danny as he leads us in worship and study at 10:00.

This is a special week for Southern Baptists in the State of Mississippi. The Mississippi Baptist Convention kicks off tomorrow at First Baptist in Jackson. Please pray for our Executive Director, Dr. Jim Futral, and for convention president Dr. Matt Buckles as they lead this important event. Several of us will be traveling to participate in the convention activities beginning this afternoon. We are grateful to the churches of the MBC and look forward to this opportunity to fellowship, worship, and express our appreciation for their support. I’m especially looking forward to greeting our ministerial alumni at the annual dinner on Tuesday evening.

Wednesday at 10:00 students can “choose a chapel” from a host of very interesting options. Check out this list:

· Dr. Justin Spencer, Dr. LeAnn Carter, & Dr. Michael McCrory “Graduate School 101: What To Expect When You Are Expecting Graduate School” will meet in ADM 32

· Dr. Johnny Mattox and Dr. Martha Pratt “How To Become the Teacher’s Pet” will meet in ADM 24

· Mrs. Lea Bennett, “Juggling a Family and School”, will meet in Garrett Auditorium

Good Morning!

Greetings to each of you in the middle of another busy week on the Hill. Several of you are aware that I was in an accident over the weekend. Thank you for your expressions of concern. I am blessed and grateful to report that there were no injuries. In those few moments of experiencing a vehicle out of control I likewise experienced the totality of God’s being in control. How amazing to know that the God who controls all things and all situations delights in holding us firmly in the palm of His hand!

I want to thank Dr. Justin Spencer for the message he shared with us in chapel on Monday. I appreciate his testimony and pray that his words ministered to many in our community.

Tomorrow evening we will have special guests on our campus as members of the local chapter of our alumni association will meet here for dinner and fellowship. The evening will also include Duncan Schaefer’s worship leadership project at 7:00. If your schedule permits, I know that you will experience a blessing and that Duncan will appreciate your support.

Remember our students who will be participating in the BSU fall retreat this weekend. I also covet your prayers as I travel today to Chicago to participate in the inauguration of David S. Dockery as the new president of Trinity International University.

I offer a word of congratulations to Dr. Johnny Mattox for being named president of the Mississippi Science Teachers Association. I also am very pleased to recognize Dr. Ronald Meeks as our HEADWAE Teacher of the Year and Andrew Chesteen as our HEADWAE student of the year. Congratulations!

On a final note, I congratulate Dr. Stewart Bennett, Dr. Terry Taylor, and Dr. Sharon Enzor for their work on our new major in criminal justice. We received notice from our accrediting agency this week that this new program has been approved.

Blessings for a good rest of the week!

Good Morning,

I hope that each of you enjoyed a relaxing and refreshing fall break. It was another banner weekend for area football fans. Congratulations to the Bulldogs and the Rebels for bringing accolades to our great state!

I am especially pleased today to extend congratulations to our own athletic program for a recognition that was announced last week at the annual MAC conference. It was my honor to accept on behalf of the College the Halbrook Award for Academic Achievement Among Athletes. This is award is presented to the four Mississippi institutions of higher learning with the highest percentage of graduating athletes. With a 100% rate, Blue Mountain College received the award for the independent colleges. BMC also received the John C. and Ernestine McCall Halbrook Achievement Award, which is given to the single college or university in the state with the greatest increase over the previous year in the percentage of athletes graduating. Brian McDonnieal and Katie Prince were also recognized as Halbrook certificate recipients. Congratulations, Toppers, for setting the bar high!

Today another fine group of prospective students will visit our campus for Preview Day. Please join me in giving them a warm welcome to BMC.

We are thankful for Dr. Cutrer’s message this morning regarding God’s peace, purpose, and plan. We will look forward to hearing from Jody Hill, author of 38: The Chucky Mullins Effect, on Friday. The book, which normally sells for $20, will be available to students for $5.00.

Tomorrow our campus will be the site of the Future Educators of American Leadership Conference, and tomorrow evening we will have the opportunity to listen as Dr. Nancy Kerns delivers the annual Humanities Lecture in Garrett Auditorium at 7:00.
Friday we will also host the members of the MBC’s Education Commission. We are thankful for the service of these individuals and look forward to their annual visit.

I close by welcoming back to campus Mrs. Joan Herrington. We are thankful for her recovery and return.

The forecast today is for threatening weather conditions. Please be mindful and be prepared. Please keep me in your prayers as I will be traveling later this afternoon to give a report to the North Central Association at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Grenada.

Dear BMC Family,
Some college campuses are known for their iconic landmarks: a stately bell tower, an ivy covered hall, a massive library, or even an athletic arena made famous by the All-American who called it home. While ours has its own distinctive charms, it is not the Little Dell or the Gal-ry or Tyler Gymnasium that defines us--no, Blue Mountain College is defined by her people, and specifically by a cadre of gifted souls whom God called out for a lifetime of service to this special place. Throughout our long 140-plus years a few such souls have so invested their lives in this place that it is difficult to envision one without the other. We are deeply saddened today by the passing of Dr. Betty Hearn, a beloved professor of English who challenged and equipped her students to strive for the standard of excellence that defines BMC. Our fittest tribute is to conduct ourselves daily in a way that says "we are Blue Mountain College." Dr. Betty Hearn, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Please pray today for Dr. Betty's family--a family which includes the innumerable students whose love and appreciation of great literature and beautiful words began in her classroom. Those wishing to pen their own tributes to Dr. Betty may do so on the BMC Facebook page.

Barbara C. McMillin

I trust that your day and your week are off to a fine start. We begin the week blessed by the opportunity to hear from our own Mrs. Sherrell Settlemires in chapel this morning. Dr. Tim Mims will be our speaker on Friday.

We will welcome to our campus this week many guests. Tomorrow the Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees will meet in preparation for our full Board’s regular fall meeting on Friday. We thank God for the dedicated men and women who serve so faithfully and capably on our Board.
