VOLUME 55 



When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, 

think as a child, reason as a child; 

when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 

For now we see in a mirror dimly, 

but then face to face; now I know in part, 

but then I shall know fully 

just as I also have been fully known. 

But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; 
but the greatest of these is LOVE."' " -_ :

The 1987 Commoner salutes Scottie Hunt. 

While serving as camp counselor at Camp Victory in Samson, Alabama, in the 
summer of 1985, Scottie was critically injured in an automobile accident. He spent 
the academic year of 1985-86 recuperating at home while fellow Christians at Bryan 
and many other places prayed for his recovery. This year Scottie returned to Bryan. 
His courage, determination, and spirit will always be a positive example to all of us. 

We know that the road to recovery has been long and rough for Scottie and that the 
days ahead may present many additional obstacles. Therefore, the 1987 Commoner 
is dedicated to Scottie Hunt with the wish for God's best for the future. May the 
Lord bless you richly, Scottie!

Bryan's Fifth President 




Dr. Kenneth G. Hanna, president 



Karin Traylor, secretary to 
the president 






On October 4, 1986, Dr. Kenneth G. Hanna became Bryan's fifth president at the 
Inaugural Service held in his honor. Dr. Hanna was elected by the Bryan board of trustees 
shortly before the homegoing of President Mercer. He was introduced to the college 
community at the fifty-third annual commencement, Saturday, May 10. 

Dr. Hanna received his undergraduate degree at Bryan in 1957. He went on to Dallas 
Theological Seminary, where he earned his master's degree and a doctorate. 

He joined the Winnipeg Bible College and Theological Seminary in 1963 and served as 
their registrar for three years. In 1966 he was elected president, a position he held for the next 
thirteen years. Under his leadership the school grew from sixty students to over four hundred 
students on a brand new campus. 

He joined Moody Bible Institute in 1980 as vice president and dean of education. In this 
capacity he has been responsible for all educational administration, which includes day school 
(1300 students), evening school (2500), the school of missionary aviation (65), graduate 
program started in June 1985 (250 applicants), and Keswick Christian School in St. Petersburg, 
Florida (700). 

He has been married to Mary for thirty-two years. In fact, they had been married only 
three weeks before he came to Bryan as a student.

THE PASSING OF A LANDMARK 
Because of prohibitive insurance and repair costs, the White Chapel was razed 
in May 1987. Tentative plans are to use the site for the proposed new library 
and learning center. After years of service as a military base chapel in Tulla- 
homa, Tennessee, the White Chapel was dismantled and reassembled on 
Bryan campus by college staff and students. In addition to being the college 
chapel through the early 1970's, the building was used at different times for a 
men's dorm, a women's dorm, staff apartments, music studios, large classes, a 
radio recording facility, plays, and special programs. In 1986 — 87 it was the 
location of the Tennessee Homecoming '86 exhibit and the evening forensics 
competitions. Some of the Christian leaders who have spoken or performed 
from its platform are Francis Schaeffer, Cliff Barrows, Jerome Hines, Charles 
Stanley, Stuart Briscoe, Manfred Gutzke, Malcolm Cronk, Irvingjensen, Alan 
Redpath, Paul Van Gorder, E. Schyler English, M.R. DeHaan, Eugenia Price, 
Harold DeCou, and Donald Grey Barnhouse. This supplement is dedicated to 
the memories of the many people, programs, and experiences associated with 
the White Chapel which were used of the Lord to touch thousands of lives 
over several decades.

The title of the second semester production was 
BRIDGE OF BLOOD: TAKING CHRIST TO 
THE AUCAS. Performed in Reader's Theatre style, 
it presented the story of the martyrdom of five 
missionaries by the Ecuadorian Auca Indians in 
1956. It is a vivid reminder of the truth in Matthew 
10:39: "he that loseth his life for My sake shall find 
it."

praying in preparation for what was to be the men's 
last flight. Below, the women prepare gifts and the

World Outreach is a program which gives students an opportunity to get a taste 
of the mission field. This chance to serve in summer missions can help one to find 
God's will for his or her own life. This year's Missions Conference was instrumen- 
tal in helping many of these guys and gals make the decision to commit their 
summer to serve others. The following is a list of those involved this year and the 
place of service and the mission board which sponsors them.

This year's Junior/Senior Banquet took place in the 
foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains at Knoxville, 
Tennessee. The evening started at the Radisson Inn 
with the usual delicious dinner. Last Will and Testa- 
ments of various students were read by Dr. Bill Brown. 
Everyone had a laugh at the cute and humorous photos 
of their classmates' childhood appearances. Following 
supper, all made the trip to the banks of the Tennessee 
River for a romantic cruise on the riverboat. Next stop 
was at the Calvary Baptist Church for a concert per- 
formed by James Ward. Finally, the endurance of every- 
one was displayed by the exceptional scores racked up 
at the early morning bowling tournament. For those 
who managed to keep their bleary eyes open, breakfast 
was served by the Argos back home at Bryan.

This year the Seniors had the privilege of spending their 
last few days together at Camp Victory in Southern 
Alabama. The time was spent canoeing, swimming, 
kayaking, riding go-carts, fishing, and just some good 
old-fashioned fellowshipping. A good time was had by 
all, and it was a time for a Hnal bonding of relationships 
which had grown through four years of college.
