Dear BMC Community,
Today and tomorrow we are all afforded the opportunity to thank our donors for their generous support of Blue Mountain College. Students, I encourage each of you to take time to write a note expressing your gratitude to those who are helping to fund your education. “Thank a Donor Day” tables with notecards are set up in the foyer of the Admin beginning at 9:00. Thank you, Kayce and Chelsey, for providing leadership for this event.

Tonight at 6:30 the movie The Case for Christ will be shown in Garrett auditorium. Plan to attend and bring a friend!

Thursday night the Miss BMC pageant will take place in the MLB at 7:00. Best wishes to all contestants!

Congratulations are in order for all members of the BMC community as we celebrate our campus being ranked #8 among regional colleges in the South by US News & World Report. BMC earned the number one spot in the Best Value category for the same region. We are grateful for this recognition of our commitment to academic excellence at an affordable price.

Topper fans everywhere have lots to cheer about these days. Our XC women finished 6th out of a field of 24, with our men finishing 11th out of a field of 20 last weekend at the meet sponsored by Christian Brothers at Shelby Farms. The competition included several Division I opponents. It was an impressive showing by our Topper runners. Andrew McDonald and Dejone Stemmett won the individual titles at the Lyon College invitational golf tournament. Our archers brought home 3 team gold medals at the USCA regionals, with Jessie Davis and Tanner Huffman setting state records with First Place wins. Bowler Austin Harris placed 22nd out of 102 bowlers at the Green River Classic in Campbellsville, Kentucky. Wow!

Show your support for these students athletes by cheering them on in person. Today at 1:00 our JV baseball team will play Martin Methodist here at home. On Saturday at 1:00 our softball girls will take on Ole Miss in Oxford. That will be a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Just a reminder—it is not too late to sign on as a Fine Arts Patron and show your support for our Chorale as they prepare for their Carnegie Hall debut next spring. Check with Dr. Long or Nancy Grisham for more details.

Please continue to pray for the campus revival on October 9-11. I know that many of you are gathering together regularly to pray for God to do a mighty work on our campus. Keep in mind that there is a prayer room on the third floor of the Admin where you can pray and leave requests for prayer.

We are grateful for Maria Teel being with us yesterday in chapel to tell her story.

Check out these cute young Toppers sporting their new T-shirts (our nephews Walker and Mance). J

Greetings!
This is either a very late message or an early one—let’s call it early since I will be traveling on Monday and away from the office. I hope that everyone has enjoyed a blessed week on our beautiful campus. I had the special privilege last night of witnessing the excitement of rush as our female students made their society pledges. Now that was a loud and happy group!

Best wishes to our XC team as they will be competing tomorrow at Freed-Hardeman. Run hard, Toppers! Congrats to Martha Chunn for being named last week’s SSAC runner of the week.

Please continue to pray for all those affected by Harvey and those who are now in the path of Irma. We have a number of graduates who live in Florida. Pray for the safety of all those who are contending with this very serious threat. The BSU is collecting water to send to the hurricane-stricken areas.

Next week I will have the opportunity to represent BMC at the fall meeting of the Mississippi Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Jackson. On Wednesday my travels will then take me to Anderson University in South Carolina for a meeting of the Consortium for Global Education. I covet your prayers as I will be traveling from one destination to the next and away most of the week.

Reminder: Campus Revival, October 9-11!

Greetings,
I hope your Tuesday is off to a good start and that you have settled once again into the routine that serves you best. Enrollment numbers are still fluctuating, but it is safe to say that we are experiencing a record enrollment at or very near 600! For each and every student we say thanks be to our great God!

Last night the Hill was alive with the sounds of Destination Up. Many thanks to the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics for sponsoring this concert.

Today marks the last day on campus for athletic director Will Kollmeyer. Will has been appointed the Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Northeast Mississippi Community College. Will, we are grateful for your service to BMC and wish you the best as you take on this new role. Thank you for leading us during a time of considerable growth and many new opportunities in BMC athletics.

A search committee has been formed and is already in the process of identifying potential candidates for the position of Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. We are pleased to have Coach Harvey Childers join us as interim director. Please be sure to stop by his office and welcome him to Blue Mountain College.

Keep praying for campus revival: October 9-11!

Good Morning,
Although we are not in the “path of totality,” we nevertheless will have the opportunity to experience today an event that has not occurred since 1918. It has been 99 years since a solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States. The eclipse should be at its peak around 1:30 this afternoon. Please be sure to use approved viewing glasses to protect your eyes if you choose to check out this phenomenon.

Today marks the beginning of the first full week of classes and our return to our regular chapel schedule. We look forward to hearing from Dr. Meeks today.

Best wishes to all current and prospective Eunomians, Euzelians, Modenians, Bereans, and Ekklesians as rush takes place this week.

Those who did not have an opportunity to sign the Honor Code on Friday may still do so. Markers are available on the table to the left of the banner in the Admin first floor hallway.

Congratulations to Dr. Angie Skelton upon completion of her degree! Way to go, Dr. Skelton!

Greetings,
Excitement abounds as new and returning students flood the campus in anticipation of tomorrow’s first day of class! The Hill was buzzing yesterday as residential students checked in to their home away from home, enjoyed their first meal in Ray Dining Hall, worshipped together in Garrett, and participated in a host of “get acquainted” activities. With some still completing the registration process, it will be a few days before we have enrollment statistics. If the abundance of vehicles on campus is a good indicator, it is going to be a good number—and for that we say Soli Deo Gloria!

I want to say a special word of thanks to our faculty for their participation last week in the workshop led by Eileen Zamora of On Course. By all accounts, the time was well spent, focusing on practical application of active learning strategies. Thank you, faculty, for your commitment to academic excellence at BMC. Our students are blessed to be mentored, challenged, encouraged, and equipped by scholars such as you.

I look forward to Friday’s Convocation chapel, which serves as the official launch of the 2017-18 academic year. Keep me in your prayers as I prepare to share a few thoughts about “testimonies and transformations.”
