Good Morning,
Congratulations to all Patriots fans for an exciting come-back win in last night’s Super Bowl! It was a fun game to watch and a good reminder of the rewards that accompany perseverance and focus.

“Ample” doesn’t begin to describe the opportunities that this week affords the BMC community. Numerous guests will spend time on campus this week, beginning with Dr. Bill Simms in chapel today. The Finance and Administration committee of our Board will be here this afternoon, followed by Maggie Garrett, our guest vocalist, who will perform at 7:00 in Garrett auditorium. This concert is a featured event in our Carter Lectureship series and is open to the public.

Tomorrow we are pleased to host our annual math/science tournament. Please join me in welcoming these students and their teachers to our campus.

A host of faculty from several sister institutions will be here this week and next week to lead academic program review sessions in several of our departments. This week’s guests include faculty from Union University.

On Thursday our Executive Committee will return to campus to make preparations for the full Board meeting on February 24.

Of course, there is no shortage this week of athletic events. JV basketball will be in action in Tyler Gymnasium tomorrow night at 7:00; the varsity teams will be at home on Thursday and on Saturday. Topper tennis begins its season on Friday in Jackson. Best wishes to Coach Creekmore and the team for a great season!

Kudos to our Topper baseball team for being 5-0 with the start of the season. They take to the road tomorrow but will be back at home Friday and Saturday. Please plan to show these athletes your support.

On Friday I will have the opportunity to share some thoughts with you in chapel. I covet your prayers as I prepare for our time together.

May the joy of the Lord be your strength throughout this day and this week.

Greetings on this the last day of January!

With February on the doorstep that means that baseball season arrives this week. Our baseball Toppers hit the road for action on Wednesday and will be in action Friday afternoon at BNA park. While we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to play at BNA, we are getting closer every day to our first true home game at our very own Sportsplex. Pray for plenty of sunshine and favorable conditions for completion of the work so that our Toppers can take the field here on campus as soon as possible.

In the meanwhile, basketball season continues with home games this Thursday night against Faulkner University. Come out and cheer the Toppers on to victory! Our bowlers will be on the road Saturday for their first event this spring.

I too will take to the road (and the air) on Wednesday as I will be traveling to a college in Florida to serve on an NAIA membership evaluation team.

Our thoughts and prayers go out this week to those who have recently lost loved ones. May God give you comfort and peace during these difficult days.

Greetings,

This is either a really late Monday Message—or a fairly early one! In any case, I want to share some things with you that I trust are timely for today.

Today’s “Monday Message” pales in comparison this week to another venue that also provides news from BMC. On Tuesday Blue Mountain College was featured in a news article in none other than the Wall Street Journal! Explaining the efforts numerous small private colleges are making to pave the way for students to make seamless transfers from community colleges to four-year institutions, the article, complete with pictures, cites the relationship between BMC and Northeast Mississippi Community College as a partnership that serves students well. If you don’t subscribe to the WSJ, you can locate the article through a search on Facebook. We are thankful for this nation-wide recognition.

Yesterday we were honored to have Susan Parker on campus. Susan is Congressman Trent Kelly’s Communications Director. The WSJ article will be featured in next week’s email update from Congressman Kelly’s office. You can sign up to receive this update on the Congressman’s website: trentkelly.house.gov
In other news, let me remind everyone that sponsorships are still available for the second annual BMC Scholarship gala featuring Trent Harmon. We are looking forward to this very special event to be held on campus on April 13. Contact Nancy Grisham at 1-662-685-4771 x255 for more information.
We are thankful that Dr. Kenny Digby, Executive Director-Treasurer of the Christian Action Commission, was able to be on campus on Monday to deliver our chapel address. Today we will hear from Wayne Vandiver, Director of the BSU at NEMCC.

I am very pleased to learn of the strong response to the Leora Duce Leadership Initiative on our campus. If you are interested in pursuing the LDLI diploma, please stop by the Alumni office to see Mrs. Lynn Harrison.

I close today by reminding everyone to continue to pray for our sister institution William Carey University. When WCU officials deem it is safe for volunteer assistance, we will certainly organize a group for this purpose. For now, donations of school supplies and laptops are needed. You may drop off supplies in the boxes located in the Admin hallway; computer equipment should be taken to Brett Fowler. I am grateful to Brett for coordinating this effort. Gift cards are also much appreciated and can be left with Tracy Moser at the BSU. #CareyStrong

Greetings to each of you on this MLK Day!

To commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., students, faculty, and staff at Blue Mountain College are spending this day performing acts of service across our campus and across our community. There is much to be learned from Dr. King’s admonitions to his followers, including the instructions “to seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.” May our actions today both illustrate and enhance the legacy of Dr. King.

I am deeply saddened to report this morning the passing of Mr. David Gregory. A member of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church team of volunteers who had come to campus to continue their work on the Palmer-Donnell house, Mr. David became ill Saturday evening while staying on campus and passed away late that night having suffered either a stroke or a heart attack. The craftsman responsible for the intricate woodwork adorning the Palmer-Donnell house, Mr. David spent his final days and hours doing what he loved to do: use his skills on mission for Christ. His many contributions to the P-D house will serve as visual reminders of his selfless commitment to service and to the building of God’s Kingdom. We will pass along arrangements when they become available. Please keep Mr. David’s family and his church family in your prayers.

May you find inspiration in the service of others and may others find themselves blessed through your efforts today.

Dr. Mc

Wellness Center Policy:
All BMC Faculty and Staff now have the benefit of their spouse and children (living at home, older than 14) being able to use the Wellness Center for free. All they will need to do is fill out the paperwork and pay a $10 card fee.

The Wellness Center is striving to promote a culture of WELLNESS on our Blue Mountain College campus and in our community, and to make healthy fitness choices more available to our BMC family and community.

CHAPEL ABSENCES

Students are allowed six (6) chapel absences each semester. These six allowed absences will not be used in determining the chapel grade. For each chapel absence over the six (6) allowed, the student must make up the absence in order to have the absence cleared. Holds will be placed on the student’s account until the excessive chapel absences are cleared.

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.
