In the past, The Commoner has always been 
organized according to topic or discipline. This year, in 
response to the multiple changes that have taken place 
throughout the year, I decided to organize the book 
chronologically. The sections are ordered on a natural 
timeline, beginning with summer and ending with spring. 
Events are organized chronologically within each section 
as well. 

In the background of each spread is also the 
progression of a tree, beginning with roots in the first 
section and eventually sprouting into a mature tree by 
the end of the book. This is to represent the growth we 
undergo not only between the beginning and end of the 
year, but between Freshman Initiation and Graduation as 
well. We are constantly changing and growing with each 
decision we make, and that process is something I want 
this book to capture. 

Maybe you will make all the right choices, ask all 
the right questions, know all the right people. Or, maybe 
you will learn the hard way that life involves making 
wise decisions and requires that you balance your time, 
classes, friends, and activities. But whatever the process, 
I hope you find as I have that the ability to look back at 
what you've learned over the years is invaluable.

The PCI retreat was a chance for all Practical Christian Involvement leaders to come together. During 
the retreat, they had several workshops about the techinical side of leadership followed by break out 
sessions about what it means to be a leader and what that looks like for each of the different clubs. Leaders 
were given a chance to write club mission statements, discuss their goals, and determine the directions they 
want their club to go over the next year. The retreat was a great time for everyone to hear about what the 
other clubs were doing and to be encouraging to each other. Ben Norquist also announced that they would 
start work groups which meet once every other week during the upcoming semester to talk about their 
struggles, read Scripture, and to pray together. 

On August 21st, Orientation Group Leaders arrived at Cumberland Springs Bible camp with their 
flashlights, sleeping bags, Bibles, and servant's hearts in tow. Then they had a schedule walk-through with 
Mrs. Kim Tuttle, followed by a row of icebreaker games such as: chatter bugs, bingo icebreaker, alliterative 
introductions, name chain, and seating plan. These games required the OGLs to learn about each other in 
fun and creative ways. Then, after supper. Dr. Hollingsworth spoke on hospitality before everyone 
separated into their groups for prayer and discussion. The next morning. Dr. Liz Moseley spoke to all the 
OGLs before they packed up to head back to Bryan to welcome the incoming freshmen. This year there 
were a total of 25 groups such as the Vicious Kiwis, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, Knights of Ni, 
Cluster of Awesomeness, and the Soaring Elephants. Photos provided by: PCI^

Arriving at college is a step in life that intimidates 
most incoming freshmen. What's it going to be like? Will 
my roommate or roommates like me? Who will I sit with at 
lunch? These questions run through a freshman's mind 
constantly. Tori Woodson has some of the same feelings. It 
can be weird and nerve-racking thinking about everything 
to prepare for one's first semester at college. Upon arriving 
on campus, Tori comes to a realization and says, 'Woah, 
I'm actually going to live here!" 

Somewhat anxious about her roommates, 
^ / M Tori didn't know what to expect living in a three 
^/ f person dorm. By the end of the semester though, 
g ^^ her roommates are pretty much like her sisters. 
She later says, 'God put me with 

these girls, and He 
knew what He was

The All College Picnic is a chance 
for the entire student body and 
faculty to get together at the 
beginning of the year to hang out in 
an informal setting. The picnic was 
held at Fort Bluff Bible Camp. Every 
year students and teachers alike 
head up the moutain to have a day off 
and to get to know incoming 
students. Recreational options 
included playing mini golf, 
volleyball, basketball, swimming, the 
Blob, and a water slide.

You are walking down the hall of your dorm, just like you 
do every day, and pass one door near the front of your dorm. 
You know that it's the RD's place, unless you're a freshman, 
then you have no idea who lives there. The resident directors, 
RDs, run the dorms. They are the people who watch over 
everyone and, of course, direct the RAs, or resident 
assistants. What do we know about the life of our RD? For 
most of us, not a lot. Here are some questions about our 
beloved RDs just to get to know a few things about being a 
resident director and how they came to be so.

Mattliew Williams: Long 

A\'hile the resident director f)Osition is not

any other job. You apply for it and have a 
series of interviews w ith the Dean of Students. 
Nice President of Smdent Li|e. other RDs. RAs 
and Student Life personnej^d students. 
Having experience as an Ra can definitely 
help someone that is looking for an RD 
position, but I \\ ouldn"t say that it's necessar>'. I 
\\ ould most definiteiy call the resident director 
position a 'full-time' job. though a lot of people 
think otherwise because it doesn't t~it into the 
'normal' job model."

This year 15 of 29 Resident Assistants are in their 
first year of serving. When asked how they hope to 
grow during their time as an RA, these students gave 
answers varying from Deryk Rankin's response of "I 
was hoping I would pass 6' 1 " and be as tall as 
Michael Jordan," to Emily McKeehan's answer of "I 
hope to learn what it means to be a true servant." One 
answer, however, was repeated on several 
occassions: the hope to learn to love like Christ. 
sThird year RA, Ben Young says that while serving as 
an RA God has taught him"how to love people 
better." As seen through the lives of the RAs, the 
Lord clearly is working through the Resident 
Assistants here at Bryan.

I must admit, at first I was not even going to give SIFE a second thought. But once there, I realized 
there were abundant Qpjportunities for anyone; even a floundering freshman such as myself^rom helpif 
Mongolian veterinariai^s to recycling paper to interacting with high school students, SIFE As a place for any 
field of study. SIFE h|is affected me the most by showing me there are more venues for gmling professional 
experien% than what 1 could envision alone. Working with this team and their ideas has expanded all I 
thought I tpuld accomplish within my major.

I have grown so much through my involvement with SIFE! As a transfer student to Bryan College, it has 
given me a place within the Bryan College community, allowing me to connect with faculty, staff and fellow 
students. It has caused me to develop interpersonal skills and to communicate more effectively, and I have learned 
more about myself and others while being given opportunities to exercise my strengths. I've grown close to my 
fellow SIFE members as we have faced deadlines and worked together to accomplish projects for Bryan College 
and the Dayton community. 

Bonnie Fowler 
Executive Vice President 
Bryan College SIFE 


SIFE has established a recycling program for paper and cardboard in numerous locations around campus 
and has currently recycled 3,200 pounds of paper and cardboard. Money from the recycling goes to a business 
called Mainstreet Dayton, an organization working to make Dayton more attractive to people outside the 
community. „ 

This is a hands-on, interactive game in which 
SIFE members played various characters 
(realtors, car dealers, bankers, and so forth) that 
helped high school and middle school students 
make wise financial decisions. _, _ 


SIFE partnered with a Mongolian organization 
called to design a digital game that 
would teach Mongolian veterinarians how to 
make wise financial and ethical decisions.

This event gave juniol-s arid""?^ni6rs 5 minute 
opportunities to interact with speakers 
experienced in bank financials, tax preparation, 
resume writing, dressing for success, budgeting, 
and interviewing. 

SIFE partnered with SSTOP and the mayor of Dayton to get a week officially dedicated to raising awareness 
r^fcabout the modem-day form of slavery known as human trafficking in America and around the world.

On Sunday, January 31, 2010, Senate representatives,, 
met to discuss a proposed motion regarding Senate 
Bill 1 , concerning the dissolution of Ministry Council. 

After an hour and a half of lengthy conversation, they 
made their decision. Beginning the 201 1 semester, 
neither the position of Ministry to Men and Women nor 
any of the Executive Ministry Cabinet will exist. 

"Worst case scenario: Ministry Council is permanently 
dissolved," said Andrew Davis, 2009-2010 Co-Vice- 
President of Ministry Council. "Best case scenario: its 
free to become everything it was meant to be."

many ups and downs. Due 
to the elected president's 
withdrawal from school, 
Jessica Tameler, then 
vice-president of the 
Sophomore Class, 
constitiutionally had to 
take the president 
position. This left her

Communicating Through Storias 

"Honestly, more than anything else, bemg an editor has 
taught me persistence. Being an editor means you're one 
of the last sets of eyes to go over a stor>'. The production 
nights can go pretty late sometimes and the responsibility 
rests on you to make sure the facts are exactly right, the 
quotes are correct, the story is clear and applicable to the 
readers. The big challenge for me is just to keep going 
sometimes. But, if you stay at it persistently, the results 
are going to be worth the time you put into it and that 
gives you a really good feeling inside." 

-Sophomore Billy Findley (Sports Editor) 


"Journalists are essentially storytellers. That is why I love being 
in journalism. I love listening to people, because every person 
has a story. People are surprising; their spontaneous; their 
unpredictable. Just when I think that this person will have 
nothing to say, they speak with wisdom. I'm always learning in 
journalism. More than learning the inverted triangle format of a 
story, I'm learning how to better communicate with people. 
What makes a person tick? What are they passionate about? 
When I interview, these are the questions I want to find out. 
Stories are more than lines of facts; stories are about people. To 
find out these answers, it's more than just asking questions; it's 
asking the right questions. This is the most important lesson I'm 
learning. What are the right questions?"

The 2009-2010 Commoner staff was unique in several ways. Junior Britney 
Weber was chosen as Editor-in-Chief with only one semester of yearbook 
experience. Six of the seven students on staff were girls, with sophomore Chris 
Leary as the only guy on the team. Also, three of the editors are freshman 
(Maddie Doucet, Kelley Adams, and Caliie Dawkins) with no experience in 
yearbook. Another challenge was having only one photographer on stafj 
Maddie Doucet. 


Despite the challenges of a limited and inexperienced staff, the yearbook^ 
has been fun for each member- from getting to know the yearbook advisor, John 
Carpenter, to the relationships built among the team.

"Even though there have been several obstacles we have had to overcome as 

a new team with little experience, it has been exciting to be able to look at the 

yearbook from new perspectives and come up with different ideas," said

When Mrsi^ Kimberly Keck started teaching at Bryan three years ago, Women s Chorus 
had a total number of 18 members. Mrs. Keck watched the choir steadily grow over the 
years til last semester, fall 2009, numbered a total of 32 women. However, the choir lost 
seven girls due to some members needing to fulfill other class requirements in order to 
graduate. While the voices of Women's Chorus may change with the seasons, their 
impact on the listeners around them will always be the same.

Senior Justin Winters directs his own 



Of all the actors and actresses who had been in\ol\"ed with the Hilltop 
Players, none of them have been in\olved more than Justin Winters. He's 
played a part in almost ever}' pla}' that's been put on since he's been at 

"Before I came to Br}'an. I had nearly no theater experience." 
Winters said. "Since becoming a Hilltop Plajer I ha\'e had the opportunity 
to work with ever}' bit of the theater." 

Justin said all the plays he has been in have been so rewarding but it caj 
be ver>- difficult at times for him. For example, the fall of 2009 was when 
the Hilltop Players put on a play called "The Crucible"'in which Justin's 
character had to act drastically towards one of the other characters. 

For the first time in Hilltop Players Justin W^inters was given the chance 
to \\rite his own pla}' and direct it. Not onh' that, but he had to design and 
build his own set. Justin said. 'If it \\eren't for the Hilltop Players, I 
wouldn't ha\'e the experience to produce this pla}" whatsoever."This ; 

absurdist pla}' he worked so long and hard on was performed Februar}' 19 
and 20, 2010 in Brock Hall and was called "The Complete Books of

"Sir, the Players are Ready" 

During the years of the Hilltop Players, there 
as been so much growth in the players and 
ven the director, Mr. Belisle. Bemie Belisle 
as been in charge of the Hilltop Players since^ _ 
993. In his 17 year journey as a director, he \jl 
as faced many challenges but has also grown -' 
s a director. 

"When I first arrived I felt that I had come 
•om the frying pan and had been thrown into 
le fire," Belisle said. "But it was what I 
'anted to do - build a program from a good 
3undation that had already been established." 
During the time he has been at Bryan, Mr. 

'elisle says the Lord has been his coworker 
[e also says, "God has sent many talented an 
ommitted students my way." 
Molly Gehring, a senior, has a minor in 

neater. However, she has also been involved ^ 

\ six plays during her time with the Hilltop 


Before I came to college, I had never done 

ny theater outside of Christmas pageants" 

'iehring said. 'During my years in the Hilltop 

layers, I have grown as an actress, director, 

nd tech worker." 

or Gehring, One of the highlights in working 

' /ith the Hilltops Player is the experience and 
ond that she develops with her fellow actors 
/ho help her out in all the plays. 
"We are like a family," she said. 'There is 
Dmething so wonderful about a cast of actors 
upporting each other, growing close, and 
njoying shared experience on and off stage.'j 

'There is a lot of growth in the Hilltop Players and any new 
member coming in the theater is welcome to join. 
However, according to senior Justin Winters, being a 
Hilltop player requires, above all else, dedication. 

'I don't care how much talent you think you have or 
don't have," Winters says.'Theater is not about gifted 
actors; it's about stories that change the world. If you want 
to impact the world and glorify God from a stage, I 
suggest that you immerse yourself in dedication."

Finishing Strong 


For the first time in years, the women's soccer team advanced to the % 
Appalachian Athletic Conference for the championship. Sophomore 
midfielder Cynthia Wade said that the team started playing better as 
they unified throughout the season and learned how to accommodate 
each other's playing style. "We are a good team and have the ability 
and talent to play well," said Wade. 'It just depends on how we use it in 
a game." 

Head Coach Mark Sauve said the women have learned to play with 
confidence and have the desire to work for each other. The women' 
team finished third in the AAC for the regular season.

Volleyball is an incredibly mental sport and it is 
hard not to get down on yourself when you make 
a mistake. This year with the help of Jessica 
Etress, fellow defensive teammate, we realized 
that we should not be afraid to make a mistake if 
we are truly playing for the Lord. As long as we 
are playing as hard as we can and giving our all 
for Christ, that is the only thing that matters. 
Growing spiritually and understanding that God 
does not expect perfection or love us less when 
we make mistakes helped me grow more 
emotionally stable. I am so greatful to 

k Coach Sayles and 

JBryan College for 

[providing me with 

Ian awesome 

(opportunity to play 

la sport that I love. 
Upon realizing how 
lucky I am, it made 
me want to work 
that much harder in 
school, in the 
weight room, on the 
court, and in God's 
word so I do not 
waste this 


Before each match. Coach Sayles does a devotion with us which 
allows us to connect on a deeper level. Also, every practice we 
shared prayer requests with each other and continued to keep 
each other updated on the circumstances. It is hard not to grow 
together since we literally spend every minute with each other 
during fall semester,, instead of a bunch of individual players 
who got thrown on a team together, it feels like we are sisters 
and have known each other forever. There is never a dull 
moment when we are together; there is always laughter

f\\waye Running 
the EXTRA m\e 

Over the past four years, I have gotten a little faster and 
become stronger physically, but the real growth I have 
seen in myself is in my discipline and love for the sport. It 
was great coming in as Coach's first freshman girl on the 
team and looking forward to the next four years. Now, it is 
wonderful to look back at that time and think about our 
accomplishments as a team and all the fun we have had. 
Also, I have seen how my leadership has grown. The 
leadership skills I learned from the team have helped me in 
the leadership roles I hold now in ministry. Finally, I 
would like to share this bit of wisdom that Coach Stoker 
has burned into our brains. "Live in the moment." In our 
running, our morning pool workouts, our races, he always 
wanted us to be in the moment. He didn't want us looking: 
to the finish of the race or the end of the workout because 
then we weren't really focused in the present. Instead, he 
wanted us to focus on where we were and what we were 
doing in the moment we were doing it to improve the 
quality of what we were doing. It improved my running. It 
has also improved the quality of life in the relationships I 
have and the ministries I am involved in. 
-Senior Bailey Payne 

Since the beginning of my involvement with cross country, I've grown in 
terms of commitment and dedication. Being a runner takes up a lot of time at 
. this level and it takes a lot of work. Time is the biggest struggle by far. Not 
i only do you have to figure out when you have time to do homework or have a 
social life, you have to find the time to do all the little things that make a 
difference in your performance, like stretching, icing, and going to bed early, 
just to name a few. At this point I am still growing, learning and getting 
stronger every day. My running hasn't culminated at this point which is perfect 
because it gives me a drive to keep getting better.

Br}an speaking Spanish. In fact, as a freshman, I 
thought language learning was rather boring. Yet, 
somehow it has happened, and I credit it largeh" to the 
Spanish department and all of the fantastic (and 
difficult) classes I have taken under Dr. Pascucci. 

One of my favorite Spanish classes has been Latin 
American Literature. It was pretty great getting to take a 
class about literature and Latin American culture with 
all of the teaching, reading, and assignments in Spanish.

I took Dr. Bamett's Weather Studies class last fall. I 
have to say, this has got to be one of the most fun science 
lab courses here at Bryan! We not only learned about 
weather systems and how they work (which means that now 
I can look at any weather map and figure out what's coming 
our way), but we also got to launch a high-altitude research 
balloon and collect information about the weather and 
capture images of our planet from REALLY high up... like 
92,000 feet up! We launched the balloon from south-central 
Tennessee and found it about 200 feet up a tree about an 
hour north of Bryan in Harrimcin. It was a really fun 
adventure, and made me actually enjoy science for once!

Classes are hard, then you die. 

Beginning with Mr. Dwight Ryther and continuing through the current 
faculty, the English Department has sought to encourage students in its 
charge towai'd excellence. 

There have been six significant changes in the department of English 
this year. 

We have added additional courses in different areas of study to the 

We have added an award of excellence for research writing in honor of 
Dr. Richard Cornelius. The award is given to the senior English major who, 
in the opinion of the English faculty, has written the best senior thesis for 
the year. 

We have seen an increase in the membership and activity of the Sigma 
Tau Delta, the college chapter of the International English Honor society. 

In addition to the regular classes required for a major in EngUsh, the 

Department has added two areas of concentration toward which students may work for a minor in EnglisH^*"*'^ 
teaching English to speakers of other languages and creative writing. 

We have added a travel abroad program to complement a number of the courses taught in the department. 
Following graduation, members of the class will travel to Italy to visit the places they studied in the three 
courses they took during the term. 

The English Department withdrew from the Humanities Division and joined with the Language 
Department to forai a new division: The Division of Literature and Modem Languages of which I am Chairman.

T[gnsh"an^^9frconsists of more than me appropriate use of semicolons, knowledge of the Petrarchan 
■"sonnet, and the ability to reach universal truth through the mastery of story. English at Bryan is a culture 
created by the dynamic personalities that teach the classes. Each professor has unique traits that endear them to 
the students — from Dr. Legg's masquerade of pessimism ("Life is hard, and then you die"), to Dr. Impson's 
incredible influence (not impact) on students' precision in language. English students have seen heated battles 
between Mr. Harle and Dr. Jones over the appropriate use of triangles in literature, and have laughed at Dr. 
Jones' frequent hilarities, including (but not limited to) his monkey call, and the Beat Covenant rap. In short, 
the English Department is as classic as Pam Davis' "epic grading music" Pandora playlist. §

As I review my four years of being a 
Communications major, I see that one 
of my favorite times with the 
department took place the morning 
before graduation day when the 
Communication professors took all of 
the graduating Communication majors 
to the Dayton Coffee Shop downtown 
for breakfast. It was a sweet time of 
reflection, looking ahead, and just plain 
down to earth conversation. Our 
professors showed us by their actions 
and their words that they care about us, 
they want to support us, and they have 
confidence in our potential. They gave 
me some of the best encouragement I've 
ever received during my college career 
just during that one breakfast.

Learning to Teach 

Being an Elementary Education major at Btyan is great. Freshman year classes did not consist 
entirely of general education classes. I got to take classes that dealt specifically with my major. The 
professors are one of the best parts of being an education major. Mrs. Saynes was my Introduction 
to Teaching professor and my advisor and she was always available to meet with me ai0 help me 
with whatever I needed. Dr. DeGeorge was my Educational Psychology professor and even though 
it was a two hour night class, it was fun to go to because of him. I have learned so much this year, 
including educational theories and various classroom management strategies and tips to use. I 
would advise anyone who is thinking about becoming an education major to go for it. Bryan's 
education department will not disappoint.

Corr\)j Jokes and Adorable Laughs 

Most people would never think of being a math major, I certainly didn't. I hated math in high school. So what 
changed my mind? I learned from Dr. Simpson and Dr. Lestmann that math isn't just about solving impossible 
problems or finding answers that have no meaning in the 'Veal world". Math can teach us about many different 

! things in life. Dr. Lestmann taught us that math influenced many different philosophies that people still hold to 
today and Dr. Simpson shows us how God's understanding is infinite. But math isn't always serious and "boring", 
I mean who else gets to hear Dr. Simpson laugh every minute during a one hour class? Or hear Dr. Lestmann tell 

i his corny jokes every day? Math is fun and exciting. .You'll come over to our side eventually. 

I -Junior Elizabeth Beard 

Dr. Jeffr§y-B^ce, 
lasHociate professor of 
^VlMli Businessj 

As you could probably guess, math isn't one of the more popular majors here. I was even told the other day that 
ath is Satan's pasttime and that I was essentially having satanic worship whenever I did my homework. While I 
ive found myself agreeing with that statement during those instances^pf pulling my hair out over calculus, I still 
jlieve that majoring in math has its perks. | |f 

The math department does win the award for having the most huggable professor, Dr. Simpson. We also have 
r. Lestmann, the king of corny jokes. For what we lose in the boring content category, we definitely make up for 

having the most fun with our professors. It's also kind of funny how every time you tell someone your a math 
ajor, they usually respond, "I'm so sorry." Math majors always get a lot of empathy points. 

So everything considered, math is one of the best majors to be in. And gentlemen, it's always nice to know how 
' help a pretty girl with her math homework. After all, what else do nerds have to offer? #

"Probably the biggest help Bryan 
has been in my personal growth is 
the support that's available (OK, 
call it "community"). There always 
has been someone who's willing to 
listen, help sort things out, 
encourage, or prod me to take the 
next step. Professional challenges 
have stretched me in areas where I 
needed stretching. 
Accommodating supervisors have 
allowed me to become involved in 
community service efforts that 
have taught me much about how to 
deal with success and failure.

graduated from Bryan. Life as a 
full time employee is very 
different than being a student. I 
could no longer just waltz into 
the cafeteria for a Diet Coke or 
go back to my dorm room for a 
post-lunch nap. But some things 
stayed the same— Community 
remains a priority as staff and 
faculty dissolve the distance 
between the student body that is 
the norm at other colleges and 
use that closeness to make wiser 
decisions for the school that are 
based on a relational knowledge 
of the students. Making people a 
priority is a characteristic of 
Bryan life that I will keep with 
me for the rest of my life."

"The Academic Support Center at Bryan College exists to ' 
provide a place for peer collaboration, tutoring, and general 
assistance," said Pam Davis, instructor in English. 

WTien it was first developed, the Academic Support 
Center was called the Writing Center, with only English 
majors helping students edit their papers and the English 
Department supporting the center. However, seeing the need 
for academic support in other areas, the center developed into 
the Academic Support Center, in the summer of 2009. During 
that summer, instead of having a small office in the Bryan 
College Librar}', the)' made it became half of the library's first 
floor. The space was transformed to create space for an 
office, a large open workspace, computer kiosks, multimedia 
stations, and a conference room. Also, Professor of English 
Bill Harle directed the center and Pam Davis, instructor in 
English, became director of the Writing Center. This 
opportunity led not oi%: to available help in writing, but also 
in History. Bible. Spanish, Greek, Hebrew, French, 
Mathematics, and the Sciences.

Welcoming New Faces Everyday 

Showie Bra>' has been an ambassador for a year; she wanted to become an 
ambassador because of her love for Ms. Kim and showing people around the school. 
Through being an ambassador she has grown as a person because she has had to learn 
to adjust to different types of people when giving tours. 

"I think my job is very important. I get to be the first contact future students have with 
current students. I mostly answer questions and show people around." said Bray about 
her impact on the students who are interested in coming here. 

Admission Advisors 

When }"ou are interested in coming to Bryan and you come here to visit for the first time, you will most likely 
be greeted with a warm smile by Kim Tuttle, who works for Admission Department. And not just her. but the rest of 
the staff of the admissions and ambassadors as well. The Ambassadors are students who work for Admissions, 
gi\"ing tours to the students and families who are interested in Bryan College. 

The Admission staff and Ambassadors have done an excellent job with the enrollment for Br}'an: this year there 
were a total of 741 students attending Brjan- 25 1 of them were freshman. At the end of this year, they hoped to 
reach a total of 300 incoming freshman and transfers. Nearly 350 freshmen are enrolled for Bryan in the fall of 
2010. Michael Nichols, director of Admissions, is glad that more students are coming. Nichols said, "The Vision 
2020 Strategic Plan of the college established a number of strategic goals that direct the functions and 
responsibilities of campus offices. Among them is the goal to reach 1200 traditional students by 2020. The growth 

of the new incomina class is consistent with the mission and vision of the institution.'.

This year, we chose our spirit week themes by polUng class SGAs to 
determine which themes they would like to see us use. After assimilating 
that list into our own list, we narrowed down and voted on the themes 
that we thought would make for the most interesting week. We then 

incorporated each of the classes 
into the spirit week process by 
farming out one day of spirit week 
to each class. They used the theme 
for the day and determined what 
lunch time activity would be done. 
We then decided that, instead of 
doing a long list of evening 
activities when everyone is so 
busy, we decided to simply do one 
big culminating event the last day 
of Spirit Week— our closing * 

ceremonies. While planning and 
coordinating something like this is 
always complicated and bit 
stressful, overall, I really enjoyed 
the experience. I hope the school 
enjoyed participating just as much 
as I enjoyed planning it.

Freshman Brian Huff has been active in 
a home school drama co-op growing up. 
His growth in this show was being on a ,.;, 
strict work ethic. He said, 'We worked from | 
7 to 10 every day, and the last week or two !■ 
we worked from 6 to 1 1 . In high school I 
had never been exposed to that kind of 
rehearsal schedule and I think that's really 
helped me become a better actor." 

Junior Rob Hargraves played the main 
character named John Proctor. He said he 
has gown into this play by the experience 
of new emotions on his character. 'I 
experienced the anguish of being a 
hypocrite who despises hypocrisy- a man 
consumed by the desire to do good, and 
yet tormented by the darkness of his own 
heart,"he said. ,^%

Dorm Wars. Gunshots in a Crowded Room 

Ramenfest. The Legend. Since 2004, Professor of 

Communication Studies Dr. Randy 

HoUingsworth's, persuasive communication 

classes have split into groups and conducted 

campus-wide activities to learn how to plan, 

implement and evaluate a persuasive campaign. 

To receive the best grade, the group must 

persuade the largest amount of students to 

participate in their campaig n. 

communication projects 

are a "collaborative 

learning" experience for 

the students, according to 

Hollingsworth. It teaches 

them teamwork and gives 

them 'field experience" in 

the art of persuasion. The 

project, assigned at the 

beginning of the semester, 

is a short-term campaign 

lasting three weeks. 

Hollingsworth said that 

the purpose of the project 

is to teach students how to 

persuade. They must persuade him to approve the 
project, and they must obtain permission from the 
proper channels such as the Office of Student Life 
and Student Government Association. 

The group then broadcasts its idea through 
posters, email or chapel announcements. This year 
OSL took down some of the Ramenfest posters 
which said BYOB-bring your own bowl. Gunshots 
in a Crowded Room's band name was debated 
because of the recent shootings at other colleges. 
But, Hollingsworth said that the administration has 
given his students multiple praises over the years 
for the projects.

In planning the Christmas banquet, the senior SGA found out that when working 
together as a team things get accomphshed. Senior class vice president Garrett Mclntyre 
said, "It was a eureka moment, like, hey we can actually do this and set things in motion 

for the rest of the year." Years before, Mclntyre was not a huge fan of SGA. However, 

when talking to a mentor he realized that instead of complaining he should do something 

about it. Over the past year the senior SGA became more intentional about the 

disconnect of the whole school in their planning of events and supporting other clubs 

They evolved as a team in the planning process and continued to grow throughout the 
school year. For any future planners of the Christmas banquet Mclntyre advises that they 

should definately be ready to role with the punches and to use the skills of your team.

"In preparation for a repertoire performance, the performer should be sure 
to know their music well. Not only should they know the correct notes to 
sing, or the right lyrics, but they should also have an understanding of the 
story of the musical piece so that they can communicate the story behind the 
song effectively through their expressions and movements. There are many 
things to think about when perfonning, but the key to a successful 
performance is to focus on the^usic."

Let's Get Ready to Rumble 

As the crowd gets pumped up for the night ahead, students enjoy the 
free t-shirts, drinks, and food, and participate in the night's activities. 
What is going on? It's Midnight Madness- and the basketball teams put 
up a show for the students to enjoy and to celebrate the upcoming season. 

Coach Rekoske who has been the basketball coach for 6 years said 
Midnight Madness has been going on since before he started coaching at 
Bryan. He is glad that he is able to keep Midnight Madness around 
because of 3 reasons: 'Reason one is to introduce the basketball players. 
Reason two is to help the players get pumped up for the season. And the 
last reason is to get the student and involved." Coach Rekoske loves that 
so many students come out and support the team.

Lion's Tie for First | 
Place in AAC for First 
ime Since 2000 1 

^ In their final game of the season, the Lions 
asketball team defeated the University of 
Virginia College at Wise 85 69 Saturday night, 
eb 20. This victory places the team in a four- 
/ay tie for first place in the AAC. This is the first 
me the men's varsity basketball team has 
chieved this status since 2000. 

UVA-Wise was one game ahead of Bryan 
oing into the game, but, after what Head Coach 
)on Rekoske said was one of the best team i^ll^l 
fforts he's seen in his six years of coaching at 
iryan, the Lions closed the season not only in a 
e for first place but with the best overall record 
1 the conference. ■ 

'This win justifies a season full of hard work,' 
lid junior forward Keith Bauer. 

With just over two minutes left in the game, 
le Lions extended their lead to 21 points and 
'ent on to finish with an 85 69 victory, 
iinior forward Scott Newton finished the game 
'ith a career high 32 points and 10 rebounds, 
jnior guard/forward Derek Batt finished with a 
areer high 21 points, and junior point guard 
)emond Craig tied his career high of eight 

'We set our goals at the beginning of the 
;ason, and, one game at a time, we achieved 
lose goals," said McCall. 

Bryan's post-season tournament begins this 
/ednesday at 7:30 p.m. here at Bryan. While the 
Dmpetition will be fierce, both Rekoske and the 
'bst of the team have high expectations.

The Bryan College Lady Lion's basketball team 
rebounded from an 18-point halftime deficit to beat 
Tennessee Wesleyan College (Athens) at the Dec. 5 
home game. 

During the first half, the team did not play strong like 
they practiced, according to Head Coach Jamy Bechler. 

'We allowed the other team to get shots instead of 
staying in control," said junior small-forward Jessica 

At the end of the first half, Wesleyan nearly doubled 
the lion's score 23-41. 

However, the team's post-play and defense picked up 
during the second half, according to Southern. 

The team definitely did not quit, said Bechler. The 
Lions refocused during the second half and came from 

The lady lions came back to win the game 70-59. 
'It was a shocking feeling," said Bechler, 'the girls are a 
strong team, but coming from such a loss to winning so 
easily was surreal." 

This game was a huge victory because the Lady Lions 
have been competing with Wesleyan all year, said 
Bechler. None of the members on the team had beaten 
^Wesleyan before Saturday's game.

said Southern.

The smells of coffee and cinnamon rolls greeted 
everyone who walked in the door of Harmony House 
on the evening of Dec. 3. But good luck finding a 
place to stand, let alone sit. 

From about 8 to 10 p.m., the coffee shop in 
downtown Dayton was overflowing with Bryan 
College students attending Singer Songwriter. The 
annual Bryan event, which hosted performers of all 
classes, was held off-campus for the first time this 

'We've always tried to go for a coffee-house feel 
on campus," said senior Elijah Ammen, vice president 
of off-campus events, "&o this year. . .we thought, 
' Why not have it at a coffee house?'" 
Ammen said the main goal of Singer Songwriter was 
to provide students with a place to relax and enjoy 
themselves while drinking coffee and hearing good 

usic from classmates. 

Freshman James Pevahouse opened the night by 
singing and playing acoustic guitar, which was the 
main instrument of 10 out of the 15 performances. 
Guitarists included seniors Abe Roberts and John 
Moore, junior Kelly Shannon and Olivia Downey,

said that while past Singer Songw riter events 
have been held in Rudd Auditorium or the

created an atmosphere of iife-giving ^ 


"We throw the w ord " communit)" around so

en estimated that the crowd that 

eked into Harmony House numbered close 
to 200 students with a few off-campus visitors 
as well. 

"It facilitated community across classes and

House, we were all squished together, andit, 
was beautiful."

Things I wish someone had told me: 
'Do not go home every weekend during your first semester-even if you are dating someone from back home., you 
will miss out on too many things. I also wish someone would've told me as a freshman to save all my class cuts for 
the week of Thanksgiving Break, so 1 could 've skipped the whole week. 

Get involved in campus life! Have fun in the dorms-getting to know people from all around the world. Go to 
SGA events even if you think you are too cool. Go on at least one Break for Change trip during your years at 
Bryan. Get to know a faculty member on a personal level-and develop a mentor type relationship. Realize that the 
churches in the Dayton/Rhea County area are probably going to be different than your church back home, but ge 
used to it and stop complaining. Go to Pocket Wilderness-even if you aren't an outdoor person. Choose your 
friends wisely, and choose ones that will uplift you and make you want to be more like Christ. If you are not a 
morning person, then don't schedule 8:00am classes every day of the week and expect to do well. Don't 

Graduation was a bittersweet time for me, and the thing I remember most about it was all of my friends, and 
previous Bryan Alums that came back to celebrate this special day with me, and yelling all my nicknames as I 
walked across the stage and received my diploma.

and grace. These times could be incredibly painful, but I am more than grateful for them and the relationships which

It started out last semester as a 
project for their Social Psycholog 
class. Students were asked to 
created a slide show containing 
secrets from Frank Warren's 
PostSecret website. 

According to Warren's website is a web-based 
"gallery of postcard-sized images 
posted anonymously to unveil a 
secret." In other words, as Warrei] 
says on his site, these postcards a 
'Shared confessions in art form." 

Now, seniors John Wang and 
Erica Smith and juniors Lauren 
Pratt and Rachel Hewitt have 
decided to take last semester's 
project even further with their 
Research and Design project: 
Masked No More. i 

Smith said that they wanted to 
do a project that was similar to 
Frank Warren's PostSecret websi 
to get students talking about the 
secrets they hold. 

'Sharing your masks is the firs 
step in the healing process," said 
Smith. 'Masked No More is just 
getting people to think about if 
they even have masks they are 
hiding behind."

"We want students to see that they 
aren't the only ones struggling with

the power of confessing your sins to 
each other and praying over one 
another's struggles: 'The earnest 
prayer of a righteous person has great 
power and produces wonderful 

j resuhs." (James 5:16)

This year, Testify's ministiy team spent MLK Day 
serving together! In the morning, half of us raked 
leaves for St. Bridget's Church, the other half went to % 
the hospital and did some landscaping work there. 
We then set out for Wears Valley Ranch in 
Sevierville, TN, where we picked up fallen tree limbs 
and did a presentation for the children there. As a 
performing arts ministry, it was neat to see the 
members of Testify get so excited about serving the 
Lord in a different way on MLK day. We definitely 
learned two things: 1. Serving together builds a team 
like almost nothing else, 2. Don't park your van in the i 
mud after a rainstorm. It just might get stuck.

We left in the morning and went to the home 
of a former Bryan professor. Miss Kantzer to help 
her with her yard. She was very gracious and 
friendly and my friend and I washed windows, 
raked and bagged leaves, and helped her weed her 
adorable little wild flower garden in the back. 
With kindness she got right down on the ground 
with us and pulled and cut roots. As we scrapped 
mud from our tennis shoes and prepared to leave 
we stopped to pray for her. She invited us to come 
back anytime and watch movies in her basement.

always very encouraging, especially as the role of M'Lynn was

We see them out running nearly every day, whether it is warm or cold, sunny, raining or 
snowing. Sometimes even twice a day. They put hours into training their bodies, toning theii 
muscles and refining their movements. P90X is a common phrase in their vocabulary. Nearly 
every weekend they trade extra sleep for long bus rides. Ice baths and ice wraps are routine. 
Even in the summer they receive emails outlining the workouts they are to complete. 

All because they love running. 

It's no wonder with this high level of dedication that the Bryan College Track & Field teaih 
continues to set records. 

Redshirt freshman Alyssia Lindsay set school records in the women's 1,500 and 800-meter 
runs. Friday afternoon Lindsay ran a personal best of 2:27.70 in the 800-meter. In her 1,500- 
meter run the following day she took sixth in section five at 5:02.33, according to the Lion's 

"[Lindsay] has come a long way in a short time and has a bright future," said head coach 
Rodney Stoker.

The sunrise hike is-aiways a 
favorite for students willing to 
wake up early. 

2010's Day of Prayer focused on the 
importance of rest, relaxation, and just taking 
a break from the routine of the week. SGA's 
Ministry Council wanted to make this day a 
restful Sabbath that students could take 
advantage. The Sunrise hike took place at 
about six o'clock in the morning. It was good 
to start of this day being out in nature and 
wondering at the marvelous creation at 
sunrise. Both the fall and Spring Day of 
Prayer Chapel speakers, Graham Hill from 
Student Life Camps and Mark Carpenter 
Director of the Lighthouse Counseling 
Center for the City Church of Chattanooga, 
did extemporary in bringing the theme 
together. Other things were offered to 
students throughout the day. Some of these 
things were art rooms, music rooms, prayer 
walks, sporting events like Frisbee, tennis, 
and bocce ball. Communion, bon fires, and 
board games. Also, an interesting aspect of 
this day was twenty-four hour scripture 
reading and prayer. Overall, Day of Prayer 
was a success bringing students a day that 
they could have had a chance to focus of the 
Lord and take a break from the stressful 
schedule of the semester. 




The experience as a whole was just 
incredible. Besides our big trips out of the 
country and on spring break, sledding in the Alps 
was a blast. It took us about an hour by train and 
then bus. The bus ride to get into the Alps was 
beautiful, and once we started sledding we all 
were acting like such kids. We were all just 
getting to know each other. It was good just to 
getaway and have fun with each other. 

Throughout the semester, Hannah Jemigan and I did a 
lot of extra traveling. We went on weekend trips to 
Barcelona, which is absolutely an amazing city. Another 
weekend we went into Paris and two other girls joined us. 
We also got the chance to go to Austria and Slovenia. In Italy 
we went to Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet, Venice, 
Florence, Rome, we attended an AC Milan game in Milan, 
and Trieste. Udine wasn't too far; that was where we attended 
church. On Spring Break a group of us flew down to Catania, 
which is in Sicily. We traveled around Sicily for about four 
days and then took a train up to the Naples area. There we 
met up with our RD, Jesse, and his friends and over the 
course of 3 days went to Possitano, Capri, the Amalfi Coast, 
Sorrento, and Pompeii. Looking back I think that the area 
around Naples was the most beautiful of all of Italy. 

The best time of the trip was the very last weekend that 
we had to go explore. Hannah and I were supposed to be in 
Berlin Friday afternoon but because of the volcano in Iceland 
our flight was cancelled, so we got on a train and headed to 
Slovenia for a few days. We ended up on Lake Bled which 
was absolutely gorgeous set in the middle of the Alps. The 
amazing part of the trip was the two guys that we met in our 
hostel. As we sat in the living room of our hostel we were 
finishing up our paper for our New Testament Literature and 
Interpretation class for Dr. Davis. Little did we know that the 
two guys were going to ask us what we were writing and that 
we would sit and talk with them about Christ for the next 
five or six hours. After everything that happened that 
weekend, from a volcano erupting to our flights being 
cancelled, we realized that we were not in control of 
anything, and God will get us to the places he wants in order 
to use us whether we plan on it or not.

^v\Y\q^\Y\q^ the Impossible Dream to Life 

Spring 2008: Junior Robert Ethan Hargraves auditioned 
his freshman year for the musical 'Man of La Mancha," 
which requires a minimum of 12 male actors and two large 
choruses. Only five males showed up to the auditions, and 
two of them had technically graduated, according to 
Hargraves. The musical never made it to the stage that year. 

Spring 2010: Hargraves once again auditioned for 'Man 
of La Mancha" and landed a lead role as a character who 
doubles as both the manservant and Sancho Panza. The 
timing was right for the musical because the right number of 
males auditioned with the talent to perform it. 

'The musical is played out as a play within a play, with 
Cervantes and his manservant acting out the story of Don 
Quixote to their fellow prisoners," Hargraves said. 

Don Quixote tries to 'Hght all wrongs" and views the 
other characters in the best possible light, according to Mr. 
Bemie Belisle. When he encounters a prostitute at an inn, he 
calls her his 'honorable lady."Even though she is not, she 
becomes how he views her because of his influence. 

Belisle said that he has always liked the musical because 
of its redemptive message. It is about the '^ower of seeing 
people in the best possible light despite their depravity." 

'I kind of compare it to how God sees us, "Belisle said, 
'He sees the good in us. He sees the possibilities in us even 
though we are fallen creatures."

"Being in San Diego wa^ time 
of serving and a time of being" 
served. We weren't there to just'% 
serve other people - as if we have 
something great to offer them that 
they can't get somewhere else. Wi 
were there to develop relationships 
with the people in San Diego. We 
were there to live out the church - 
to live out the love we have been 
given by Christ - to the people that 
we met. A lot of our time was spent 
hanging out with people and doing 
life with them. I learned how to 
approach people differently than^ 
do now - to approach them in love 
without expectations or judgments. 
Some of the homeless people I 
talked to were just as giving and 
loving to us as we were to them. 
The greatest lesson I learned was 
how to love and be loved."

GowY\e, Camerae, Action! 

The hour is waning. All those months of 
writing, planning, filming, editing and 
sweating will hopefully pay off for Bryan film 
majors anxious to see the results of their latest 
films at the Broad Street Film Festival in 
Chattanooga, April 22-24. According to the 
film makers and those planning the event, the 
festival should be a dandy. 

'I think there are a lot of reasons to be 
excited about this because there are such a 
great variety of films coming from Bryan this 
year," senior Phillip Johnston said. 

Last year, Bryan broke with tradition and 
featured films not only produced by the Bryan 
College film department but also by students 
of Covenant College (Lookout Mt., Ga.). This 
year, the festival alterations are even more 

First and foremost of these alterations is 
that the festival is no longer going to be a 
Bryan College event. Rather it is hosted by a 
separate non-profit organization funded by the 
Community Foundation of Greater 
Chattanooga and will be featuring films not 
just from two schools this year but three 
(possibly four counting UTC): Bryan College, 
Covenant College and Southern Adventist 
University (Collegedale. Tenn.). Southern 
Adventist has had an established film program 
for the last 10 years, according to Bryan 
Assistant Professor of Communication 
Studies Chris Clark. 

in '*^ 

Another noteworthy change is that the films will be 
shown on the big screens at the Carmike Majestic 12 
movie theater in Chattanooga. This is a tremendous 
change from last year's venue at the Bijou. 

'This is the biggest step the film culture has taken in" 
presenting its work to the Chattanooga community at 
large," Johnston said. 'It's great for the filmmakers and the 
students." ^ 

The film festival is a three-day event which begins with ^ 
the showing of the films in the Majestic theater on 
Thursday, April 22. All the viewings are open to the 
public. The second day, film students will get the privilege SI 
of meeting and listening to independent film director Scott 
Teems, director and writer of the film 'That Evening Sun." 
And of course, the awards ceremony will take place the 
final day of the festival at the grand Tivoli Theater in 
Chattanooga. i 

The awards ceremony will include many of the same 
elements included in last year's awards night, according to 
Clark, with multiple school bands performing, clips shown 
of the films, the awards and speeches and lots of tuxedos 
and fancy gowns. There will also be three new awards 
offered for this ceremony including awards for Best 
Documentary, Best Original Screenplay and Best Music l 

There was also a professional master of ceremonies 
hired for the event as well.

And a Midnight Cruise 

Freshman Class officers and SGA Events Council have 
combined their planning abilities for "A Night on the Riviera" 
spring banquet and cruise scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 27. 

SGA's Events Council wanted to bring back the midnight 
cruise because of its popularity last year, according to Vice 
President of Off Campus Events Elijah Ammen. When the 
weekend of the 27th became available, they checked with 
freshman SGA and coordinated to have the banquet and cruise 
on the same night. 

This is the first time two large events like this have been 
planned for one night, according to freshman Vice President 
Amy Morris. 

The banquet will begin at 6 p.m. with "A Night on the 

'We want people to see and smell the river," said Morris. 
The decorations and atmosphere will create an outdoor 
European restaurant atmosphere. 

'We plan on this banquet being classier than ordinary 
banquets, "said freshman Treasurer Kelly Findley. People will 
be able to focus on table conversation instead of the stage 

At 10:30 p.m. after the banquet, students will begin 
boarding the midnight cruise, according to Ammen. The ship 
will leave the dock at 1 1 p.m. and return at 1 a.m. 
There will be a wider range of activities on the two-hour 
cruise this year. According to Ammen, the cruise will have all 
the same activities that students enjoyed on last year's cruise, 
in addition to a video game arcade, card games and karaoke.

The goal of every Junior Senior Banquet is to 
honor the Senior Class, and this was the driving ^ 
goal we tried to focus on as we went through each 
aspect of the planning process. 

We accomplished this goal by trying to focus 
on the personality of the senior class as we 
planned the trip. Each class has its own 
personality, and as juniors, we have had the pasti 
three years to get to know the senior class and 
learn what things they are passionate about as 
well what things they don't particularly care for. 
Each location was chosen for a specific reason as 
a nod to the seniors. 

An event like Junior Senior is bound to 
stretch any team of college students. It been my 
persuasion during the time I've spent on SGA that 
leadership done properly is really just another 
wa}' of expressing serv^anthood, and the amount of 
time and effort that goes into planning and | 

executing Junior Senior really culminates into a 
grand and unique opportunity to serve. So many 
different details have to be taken into account. 
But I couldn't have chosen a better team of eight 
people to work with, and we learned so much 
about relying on one another to make sure that, as j 
one unit, we were the most responsible stewards 
of the task that we could be.

Saturday morning, May 1, 2010, 
cars begin to quickly leave the 
Bryan hill with great anticipation of 
Jacksonville, Florida. Others left the 
night before to get a head start on 
soaking up the sun. I was among the 
latter group. The arrival to the beach 
Saturday afternoon greeted us with 
the fresh smell of the ocean, the 
smooth feel of the sand, and a 
perfect breeze. Needless to say, I, 
along with the others, became 
instantly relaxed. 

Sunday morning, we gathered for 
a time of worship; there was nothing 
quite as breathtaking to me as 
worshipping the vast Creator while 
viewing the seemingly endless 
ocean. Our days were spent 
enjoying the sand and the sun and 
occasionally we took a break and 
shopped! One night we gathered for 
a delicious meal at the home of 
Hannah Hamrick, and I must say 
this night provided quite the 
bonding time for us all! 

On our final evening we 
gathered for a banquet and quality 
pictures. Jacksonville will now be 
instilled in my heart as a place 
where memories were made, 
friendships were strengthened, and 
an understanding that our Father's 
love would be a bond which would 
last forever.

A Time of Joy and a 
Time of Sadneeei 

A I 

Saturday, May 8, 2010 was the class of 
2010 graduation. The seniors walked up 
on stage with a smile on their faces, 
knowing they are finally done. These 
'Survivors"use to be a big class- their 
freshman year there were around 190 
students, but now only 77. The class of 
2010 is known for two thing: wining flag 
football and losing Sprit Week. 

This day is a very emotional day for a 
lot of people. The seniors are realizing that 
their time is done at Bryan CoUege, and 
that they are leaving all their friends 


Aimee Crotts, an English Literature major, said 'It's been a long road, so I'm 
glad that the end is finally here. I'm not certain what I'm doing next, but I'm happy 
that it won't include homework! "Aimee is going to miss the most at is all the friends 
that she made, and the environment of love and trust she have grown to cherish. I 
have gown as a person from the encouragement to use my mind in my faith, to think 
things through to their logical conclusions and not just accept anything at face value.' 
'My favorite memory at Bryan was my first trip to Pocket. It was a pizza picnic my 
first week here, with my orientation group. It was a great time... good food, making 
new friends, finding snakes and skipping stones." 

Stephanie Huskey, who majored in Computer Science with a double minor in 
Creative Writing and Mathematics said, 'I'm excited that I'm about to graduate, but 
scared at the same time. One chapter of my life is coming to a close just as another 
chapter is starting. Its both terrifying and thrilling to see what else God has for me in 
this world.", 

'My fondest memory at Bryan came to me just recently. My best friend recendy 
died less than a month. And when she passed away. It was thanks to the love, comfort 
and support of all my friends that I was able to make it through that difficult time." 
After graduation, Stephanie wants to become a Graphic Designer and do freelance 
work in various areas as well as fulfill one of her longstanding dreams of writing a 
book and possibly getting published. 'Bryan has challenged me in several ways to drav 
closer to God and become a better person. I've always been a bit of a loner, but Bryan 
has showed me the value of community and true lasting friendships. And that what I 
going to miss about Bryan the loving community environment."

Where did 23 years go? 

When you were born the wonder was

The journey to graduation day has been 

challenging, your persistence, your 

academic achievement, in spite of adversity, 

makes you "THE MAN" that you are.. ..Your 

desire to build God's kingdom; to be light in 

a dark world, makes me proud. I know that 

your dad is looking down from heaven... 


I can't think of a person who knows you 

that has not been blessed by you... I know 

you will touch many lives in the future. 

Love you and praying for you. Momma 

Bro, we talk often about how we came from a 

unique source, there are things that only you and 

I will know, and or get about each other. Looking 

at this picture, I can't help but think about how 

you have come to exemplify, for me, the best 

parts of "the man." 

Love you. Josh 

Timmy, I remember when you used to say you 
were never going to college, and here you are 
graduating. I love you, Timmy, I'm so proud to 
be your lil sis! You have always been there to 

pick me up when I was way too short to see 
what was going on. God couldn't have blessed 

me with better brothers than you and josh.

Memoi^-'s scroll. That's what a yearbook should be- 
a chance to look back at ever}thing the }ear has 
encompassed, remembering both the good and the bad, the 
fun and the boring. It should be something we can show 
our kids, our friends, our parents, our families; snapshots 
of our lives together during the past year. It should be 
something that reminds us of the lessons we learned and 
how we've grown. 

From the sprouting tree on the background of each 
page, to the stories of students and faculty, to the 
progressive bar of smdents on each page- all was designed 
to represent the growth of each student throughout their 
college years. For all the friends we've made, the 
professors we've sat under, the memories we've lived- this 
is what grows us and this is what shapes us into who we 
are- and this is what we should remember. 

So here's to growth, here's to the ability to look back 
on some of the best years of our lives, here's to people 
who stretch us, who challenge us, who teach us in the 
name of love. Here's to remembering. 


To all of you who helped make this book all that it is, I owe you my life. 

i ^ 


John and Karin- Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity. You have stretched me in 
ways I can't describe, and I have enjoyed the process thoroughly! Thank you for your 
direction and support- 1 couldn't have done it without you. 

Maddie- Without you, this book would not exist. Thank you for your dedication to getting 
pictures at every event, and for finding them for me when you weren't able to get any. I never 
had to worry about whether you would remember an event. You have been my saving grace 
when I forgot to factor in important spreads, and have kept me ahead of schedule, rather than 
just barely keeping up. Thank you for the dozens of times you fixed pictures for me when the 
resolution was too low, for answering texts at all hours of the day, and for always being 
willing to go above and beyond. I could not have asked for a better photographer. 

Callie- Girl, you are my ray of sunshine. Thank you for always being just as (If not more!) 
excited about this book as me. Thank you for your countless words of encouragement when I 
was unsure about how something looked, for your pep talks when I was convinced the book 
would never be finished, for finishing your pages and then helping out with the others, for 
answering questions when I couldn't answer any more, and for our "editor's meetings"that 
inevitably turned into talking about our boyfriends every time. Thank you for everything you 
.have done- from spell check to captions to finding pictures to asking for copy to listening to 
me vent- 1 always know if I ask you to do something, you will get it done, and it will be 
perfect. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this book. You are a blessing. 

Chris- Thank you for your headlines! You are a master of words. Thank you also for all the 
hard work you put into getting copy for your spreads and for helping me with ideas for other 
spreads. You have gone above and beyond on all of your spreads. 

Desirae- 1 am so excited for you to get to be editor next year! Your love for yearbook is 
obvious in all of your spreads and I can't wait to see what you do with the book next year! 
Thank you for your willingness to help. 

Kelley- Thank you for always being cheerful, even when you were having trouble getting 
pictures and copy for your spreads. You were a joy to have in class and the room brightened 
every time you walked in. 



Leigh- Thank you for all the work you put into your spreads and for completing them- while 
planning a wedding! Thank you and congratulations! 

Kirsten- Thank you for our Happy Hour Sonic dates, and for not complaining when I had to 
cancel to work on the yearbook. You have been a blessing and I am so blessed to have you as 
I a friend. 

Elijah- Thank you for pulling me away from the computer when I was going cross eyed and 
for reminding me to take time to look at the stars or watch Battlestar Galactica. Thank you for 
'your constant support and encouragement, for the sandwiches you brought me in class 
because I forgot to eat, and for continuing to love me, even when I was too tired to be 
comforted. I luff you.
