Good Morning,
It is the beginning of “Dead Week,” which means that BMC students are focusing their time and attention on finishing strong. Best wishes to all who are laboring to present final projects, to polish final performances, and to complete research papers!

If you need a break from your studies, come out this afternoon at 3:00 to support the softball team and/or at 4:00 to cheer on the participants in the international/USA soccer match. Tomorrow plan your break time to coincide with the night of worship led by our gospel choir at 6:00 in the Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium. You will be blessed, refreshed, and rejuvenated!

The baseball Toppers are on the road this week; SSAC softball tournament action takes place this weekend.

Allow me to congratulate once again the family of Dr. James E. Buchanan, Jr. upon the naming of our business office suite in his honor. We are proud for his legacy of service to be honored in this way. If you haven’t seen the newly remodeled suite, stop by and check it out. Many thanks to Joyce Peters, Stan Irwin, Amy Thurmond, Tommy Peters, and the NMR staff for all that you did to prepare for Saturday’s celebration.

Congratulations to Rebekah Smith, to Dr. Nancy Kerns, to Mr. Bill Dowdy, and to all the contributors to the 2016 Mountain Breeze. Kudos as well to Brianna Edgeworth, to Dr. Elizabeth Crews, and to the entire staff of 2016 Mountaineer. Thank you for preserving the many memories made in 2015-16 at BMC.

Finish strong!

Good Afternoon,
This week is already off to a great start with our gospel choir setting the tone in worship this morning! Dr. Brent Barker shared an inspiring message. We are glad to have him and all of the pastors who have gathered on the Hill today to participate in the State Preaching Conference.

Tomorrow will be a fun day as we welcome lots of kids to campus for Literacy on the Lawn. We’ll be playing softball at home tomorrow and then baseball at home Friday and Saturday. Tomorrow evening will be a special occasion as we set aside time at 7:00 in Lowrey Memorial to commission our summer missionaries. Students, I look forward to seeing you in chapel on Wednesday. I’ll be sharing the GROW BMC plan as well as a special surprise. You will want to be there! The Mountain Breeze and The Mountaineer will be presented in chapel on Friday.

Thursday is Research Day. I congratulate each of our student scholars and their professors for their outstanding work. Thank you, Dr. Dunagan, for your leadership of this event. Presentations take place at 3:00 in the SUB.

I’m delighted to announce several new appointments. Beverly Hickey has assumed the role of Director of Financial Aid; Brad Hill has moved to the role of assistant director. Janice Prather will continue in financial aid in a part-time role. Janice, we are grateful for your service to BMC. Dr. Ronald Meeks has assumed responsibility for all ministerial recruiting alongside his faculty responsibilities. Warner Creekmore will join the BMC team as our tennis coach; Brandon Hardin has been named our band director.

On Saturday at 11:00 we will honor the long and meritorious service of the late James Ellis Buchanan, Jr. by naming our business office in his honor.

Recruiting efforts for GROW BMC are in full swing; keep spreading the word that there are great opportunities at Blue Mountain College! Lynn Gibson will be at McNairy Central on Thursday. If you are in that area and need information, be sure to touch base with him.

I continue to receive much encouraging feedback from last Tuesday’s scholarship gala with Tim Tebow. Over 2500 people were inspired by Tim’s testimony with many making decisions for Christ. For that we are most thankful! We are also very grateful to have raised approximately $150,000 for our general scholarship fund. Soli Deo Gloria!


Have a great week!

Greetings to all at the beginning of another very busy week here on the Hill!

Our celebration of 60 Years of Ministerial Education at BMC receives special emphasis this week, beginning with our own Dr. Meeks leading us in chapel this morning. (If you missed chapel this morning, you missed a great message called “Why I Teach at Blue Mountain College.” I encourage you to check this out on our website and pass it on to anyone who is considering BMC.) On Wednesday area Associational Missions Directors will be here for their spring meeting. On Thursday we welcome Dr. Chuck Kelley and Dr. Rhonda Kelley to our campus along with over 175 guests for our first Ministers and Wives Banquet. A very special evening has been planned for the purpose of encouraging couples in the ministry. On Friday we will observe Ministerial Alumni Day and welcome a wonderful group of prospective ministerial students to our campus. We are honored to welcome back to campus all of our MA’s and trust their special day will be both joyful and worshipful.

Please keep in mind that today at 3:00 (and every Monday) our admissions team will be leading a time of prayer for GROW BMC and for all of our prospective students.

As a GROW BMC update, I am pleased to announce that Liz Thurmond is joining our admissions team today as a full-time recruiter. A graduate of the BMC class of 1983, Liz holds a master of Christian education from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She has served previously as the associate director of the Baptist Student Union at Ole Miss, as the BSU Director at Hinds, and as the associate director at NEMCC. We are delighted to welcome Liz to our team!

We are pleased to announce the signing of our first BMC bowler; Austin Harris of West Union High School has claimed the first spot as a Topper bowler. We look forward to many others following Austin’s lead to become a part of Blue Mountain College. On Thursday our Enrollment Services team will host a luncheon for area guidance counselors to introduce them to GROW BMC.

I offer a word of thanks today to all who joined us last Thursday to learn from Dr. Jeff Docking about the growth plan at Adrian College. His insights were very helpful and encouraging.

You can catch the Topper softball team in action today, Friday, and Saturday at home. The baseball Toppers are on the road this week. Our golf team is in action today and tomorrow in the Redhawk Classic. Let’s bring home another win!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of our Greater Memphis Area Alumni at their annual scholarship luncheon at Ridgeway Baptist Church on Saturday.

On a personal note, I am especially grateful for the many expressions of sympathy upon the passing of my brother. In times of sadness how comforting it is to know that we are being lifted up in prayer by our BMC family!

Blessings to all for a productive and pleasant week,
Dr. Mc

Good Morning,
We have talked about April 12, 2016 for such a long time; it is hard to believe that the big day has finally arrived! Preparing for an event of this magnitude has required a significant team effort. Allow me to acknowledge the work of the planning committee: Linda Gholston, Linda Johnson, Ty Robinson, Emma Ainsworth, Becky Benson, Nancy Grisham, and Jody Hill. They have worked tirelessly to plan the intricate details of a complex endeavor. They have been supported in their efforts by Amy Thurmond, Stan Irwin, Tommy Peters, Andrew Higdon, Brad Hill, Pam and Jerry Bowman, Nancy McDonald, Delise Teague, Joyce Peters, Sheila Freeman, Sharon Enzor, David Harrell, Kevin Barefield, Sharon and Leon Enzor, Jack and Tracy Moser, Sue Jarvis, Rita Newby, Anna Quinn, Greg and Laura Long, Lynn Gibson, Kayce Bragg, Annabeth Barnes, Liz Thurmond, and a host of students, including student leaders, golfers, cheerleaders, and the chorale.

The program begins this evening at 7:30 at the BancorpSouth arena in Tupelo and will feature a video presentation on BMC, a performance by our Chorale, and an address by our special guest Tim Tebow. Tickets are still available! Please join me in praying for God’s blessing on this event, for safe travels for all involved, and for God to receive glory for all that transpires. Doors open at 6:30.

On Thursday at 5:30 in the SUB, Dr. Leora Duce will present a lecture and slide show on her many travels to the Holy Land. We are honored to have Dr. Duce back on campus and hope that you can join her for what will surely be an informative and enjoyable event.

The Topper softball team is on the road this week; baseball action takes place at home on Friday and Saturday. The SSAC golf tournament is Friday and Saturday also. Go, Toppers!

I will be traveling this Friday to Hattiesburg for the final Education Commission meeting of this academic year.

I will miss being with our Nashville area alums on Saturday but hope there will be a good turnout for lunch at Cheddars at 11:15.

Have a great week!


Barbara C. McMillin
President

Greetings on a beautiful Monday!

I hope that your Easter weekend was filled with joy and hope as you celebrated the risen Savior!

With spring break and Easter both behind us, we enter now the whirlwind that characterizes the end of another year at BMC. Seniors, the trip across the stage in Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium is only 40 days away! Sarah’s challenge in chapel this morning was most appropriate: make the most of your remaining days at BMC and plan to finish strong.

On Thursday our trustees will return to campus for a day-long retreat devoted to GROW BMC. Our retreat leader will be Dr. Jeff Docking, President of Adrian College. On Thursday evening a number of special guests will be on campus to enjoy a time of fellowship over dinner and to be introduced to the GROW BMC plan. Please extend a warm welcome to all of these visitors.

On Friday we will join for our quarterly trustee-led prayer time at 11:00 at Lowrey Memorial. Please attend if your schedule allows.

Lynn Gibson will have the opportunity to recruit for our yearbook and newspaper initiatives this Friday at a conference on the campus of the University of Mississippi. Let’s keep spreading the word about the new programs coming to Blue Mountain College!

I look forward to visiting with alums from the Union County area this Saturday at 11:00 at El Agave. Come join us!

Softball Toppers are in action at home tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday. The baseball Toppers are on the road later this week. Good luck to all.

Students should complete the requirements for clearing the excessive chapel absence during the semester in which the absence occurs. Satisfactory chapel attendance is a graduation requirement. Diplomas will not be awarded until the chapel absences are cleared.
