As you are no doubt aware, the shopping days left until Christmas are in the single digits; perhaps your to-do list—like mine--is still quite long. It is so easy to become caught up in the “hustle and bustle” of the season that we miss the opportunity to marvel in its beauty and its true meaning. Let’s take time to pause and give thanks for the greatest gift of all—Emmanuel, God with us!
Today is a red-letter day for Blue Mountain College as several of us will be traveling to Baptist College of Health Sciences to sign an agreement to partner in offering several programs, including medical sonography, medical technology, radiography, radiation therapy, respiratory care, and business/healthcare administration. One hundred years ago Dr. B.G. Lowrey and Dr. W.T. Lowrey articulated a vision that ultimately led to the formation of a healthcare system that has now touched the lives of thousands upon thousands of Mid-Southerners; today that vision will be extended to include new opportunities for Blue Mountain College to partner in the provision of healthcare education, a venture which we will trust will serve to enhance the original mission. For this partnership with BCHS, we are grateful.
Please remember our men’s basketball team as they travel to and from Morningside College in Florida for today’s game. Go Toppers!
