Good Day,

We arrived today to a considerably quieter campus as students have departed to begin their summer break and graduates have departed to begin the service for which they have been well prepared at Blue Mountain College. Congratulations once again to the Class of 2018! Faculty, thank you for inspiring these graduates to pursue excellence. Staff, thank you for modeling service and commitment for these newly minted alumni of BMC.

I am grateful to all who contributed in some way to the success of the commencement programs on Saturday. Despite the rain, our guests enjoyed a wonderful day of celebration because of your many acts of kindness and assistance.

This season always brings with it a host of transitions, including those noted during the afternoon service on Saturday. We congratulate Beverly Moffitt and Sherrell Settlemires for their many years of outstanding teaching and commend Miss Johnnie Armstrong for her remarkable 64-year career in the classroom. Beverly and Sherrell will continue to serve as adjunct professors as needed, and Miss Johnnie will continue fulfilling a host of duties, including game day preparation, intramural supervision, student mentoring, and interaction with alumni and friends through the Office of the President.

This fall Jack Moser will transition into a full-time faculty role in the Department of Kinesiology while also serving as JV Men’s basketball coach. I know that you will join me in expressing appreciation to Coach Moser for his six years of excellent leadership as our Vice President for Student Services and Dean of Students.

We extend best wishes to women’s softball coach Tyler Herring who has announced that he is stepping down after three seasons as Topper head coach. We wish Tyler, Staci, and Branch well as they relocate to Arkansas.

Three new faculty will be joining the BMC family this fall. Formal announcements for each at the end of this message.

With the onset of summer we can look forward to enjoying casual Fridays beginning this week. Stay tuned for more information from Joyce Peters.

I’ll be traveling later this week to New York City to cheer on the BMC Chorale under the direction of Dr. Greg Long. Keep all of Big Apple travelers in your prayers. After a brief stop back on campus next Tuesday, I’ll be headed to Tupelo to speak at the Senior Day Retreat at First Baptist Church on Tuesday afternoon and then on to Memphis to catch a flight to Waco, where I will participate in the Baylor Christian Higher Education Leadership Seminar on Wednesday. I’ll see everyone back on campus May 17.

Keep Emma Ainsworth in your prayers; she underwent knee replacement surgery today.


Blue Mountain College announces the hiring, effective August 8, 2018, of Dr. Barbara Trivelli-Bowen as Assistant Professor of Elementary Education in the Department of Education. Dr. Bowen is a graduate with a Doctor of Education in Teacher Education from the University of Mississippi, a Master of Arts in Education from Regis University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Colorado. For many years she taught English, reading, social studies, and science instruction at West Union Attendance Center, and currently is visiting assistant professor at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Dr. Bowen sees the mission of Christian higher education as more important in today’s society than it has ever been. “When we live a Christian life in front of our students,” she says, “we may just lead them in the right direction.” Her desire is to mold our future teachers so that as “they educate our children in academics, they educate our children to become moral, responsible adults with Christ in their hearts and prayer in their decisions.”


Blue Mountain College also announces the hiring, effective August 8, 2018, of Dr. Stephanie Clausel as Assistant Professor of Education and Director of Clinical Experiences in Education in the Department of Education. Dr. Clausel is a graduate with a Doctor of Education in Elementary Education and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Mississippi, and a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Blue Mountain College. She retired in 2017 as Director of Special Services with Alcorn School District, and has been Principal of Alcorn Central Middle School and Elementary Schools.

In her application, Dr. Clausel said that she understands that each position she has held has provided her with mission field opportunities. “Teaching students in higher education would provide me with an open door to continue teaching students about Jesus and how they can shine that light in the classrooms that they will be working with in the future.”


Blue Mountain College announces as well the hiring, effective August 8, 2018, of Mr. William Curry (Will) as Associate Director of Bands and Instructor of Music in the Department of Fine Arts. Mr. Curry is a native of Eupora and is a graduate with a Master of Music Education from the University of Mississippi and a Bachelor of Music Education from Mississippi State University. He is currently serving as Assistant Director of Bands and Percussion Instructor at New Albany High School.

Mr. Curry and his wife, J.J., attend Hillcrest Baptist Church, New Albany, where he is actively engaged in the worship ministry. As a percussionist, he will bring additional expertise to our instrumental music program. In his application, Mr. Curry stated, “The ultimate goal of a Christian, faith-based college is to develop its students into well-rounded individuals who graduate both with a deep knowledge of their chosen field of study, and far deeper knowledge, understanding, and love of God and His Word.”
