In August 1034 students flocked to the Mars 
Hill College campus anticipating a year of 
challenge and growth. With a rich history and 
a promising future, MHC offered them aca- 
demic challenges and community involvement 
to prepare them for a wide array of careers. 
Friendships, achievements, and educational 
opportunities were the mortar that enabled 
students to lay foundations BUILT TO LAST.

Daily classes and intense studying 
led students to find ways to un- 
wind. While some students enjoyed 
working out in the new fitness cen- 
ter, others took naps in the Blue 
Lounge. Many students spend lei- 
sure hours playing sports, making 
trips to Asheville, or hanging out 
with friends. No matter who they 
were or how busy their schedules, 
they always took a few minutes to 
sit down, relax, and enjoy them-

A surprise awaited students as they prepared to make 
their way through the long, drawn-out registration pro- 
cess. Administration had simplified the process so that 
students waited less than a hour to confirm their class 

Students still had to wait in long lines at the bookstore Wj J, 
while purchasing books and supplies, but the average yy 
time for first day registration was cut in half. /r.^ 

Waiting in line is nothing new.

One student listened intently 
as the loan process was ex-

The Lunsford Festival, which is held the first weekend in October every 
year, brought out a diverse group for a taste of Appalachian culture. There were 
booths offering a variety of homemade items: jellies, Christmas decorative pieces, 
toys, food, and quilts. Music could be heard throughout the day as local musicans 
came out to showcase their talents. The Bailey Mountain Cloggers drew a large 
crowd as they performed traditional styled clogging. A petting zoo and horse- 
drawn buggy provided a great diversion from routine life on campus. 


There were many interesting things to do, including 
hook weaving.

It didn't matter where a person came 
from or where they were going, each 
brought a new wave of ideas and diver- 
sity to organizations and clubs steeped 
in tradition. Each organization 
on campus welcomed old and new stu- 
dents alike, while trying to recruit new 
members. The fellowship that these 
groups offered encouraged many stu- 
dents, who would not normally socialize, 
to be more out going and encouraged 
lasting friendships for years to come.

Quality Reporting At Its Best 

The Hilltop 

As editor of a newspaper, one must convey informa- 
tion that will hold a reader's interest. Brian Graves knew 
this and set out to redesign the paper in order to enhance the 
journalistic talents of his staff and increase circulation. 
Coverage of campus news, sports, and computer programs 
available for use by students was top quality reporting. A 
total of 10 issues of the Hilltop were produced this year.

The radio station has seen several changes under the management of Holden Clodfelter. 
New sound equipment made the job of DJing easier for those who worked the late night shifts. The 
range of music offered was expanded to include not just rock or alternative music but also Latin 
music. This new addition was implemented in the spring semester. 

The weekends were allocated to the WVMH Spirit Mix. The Spirit Mix played faithftally

7\)o Resf Unfil Respect 

The Lions set out on a quest this year. It was for respect, not only in the South Atlantic 
Conference, but across the NCAA Division II ranks. For a while, it looked like they were going to 
get It; with five consecutive wins, they stood at 5-1, and 3-0 in the SAC. However, fortune turned 
against the Lions who managed to score only one victory in the following four games 

The Lions were led on offense by their field general, Ashley Abemathy (#7). He compiled an 
impressive year, ranking third in the SAC in total offense, en route to all-conference honors. 

Defensively, the Lions looked impressive, when not bitten by injuries. 1 995 Defensive Player 
of the Year (and AU-SAC linebacker) Mike Belk and comerback Benji Frazier led a host of improv- 
ing talent. ^ 

With a 6-4 record this year, the Lions may not have gotten to rest much, but their respect 
factor has escalated in the SAC. No one will dare overlook the improvements Head Coach Tim 
Clitton has made to this team. 


Practice makes perfect. The Lions head into the locker room after their daily virgil.

For the 1995 season, Mars Hill was looking to overcome the loss of two outstanding seniors. 
Although the young recruits showed promising potential at times, the loss proved to be too great. 

Senior Mandy Kossnar once again served as team captain, and led the Lady Lions to a second 
consecutive fifth place finish in the regular season conference standings. Kossnar graduates with a 
school record for the most digs in a career. 

The highlight of the year for the Lady Lions came at home against conference foe Carson 
Newman. After losing a tough second game 15-17, the Lady Lions rallied to win the final two games, 
and pulled out the hard-fought victory.

Biltmore celebrated it's 1 00 year birthday . 

On November 30, Student Support Services, which sponsors a trip to the famous Vanderbilt 
estate each year, took a group of students to the Centennial (1895-1995) of Biltmore. The name 
"Biltmore" comes from combining the name of the Dutch village [Bildt] where the Vanderbilt family 
originated and an old Enghsh word [more] for rolling hills. 

This year, 14 participants got the chance to see the well-known estate for themselves. Audio tours 
were provided for those who were interested in the history of the vast Vanderbilt collection. Partici- 
pants were able to tour at their own pace and to stroll the grounds. Though the day was a chilUng 
experience, the participants still managed to enjoy the day. Everyone should make an effort to go to 
Builtmore House at least once. It is truly a wonder to see.

In Memory of. 


Built to Last is an apt 

term to describe the career of a man 

who unselfishly and faithfully 

ministered to Mars Hill College 

students, faculty, and staff and 

served the interests of the entire 

college for 40 years. 

Dr. Otis Duck, who died on 

April 27, 1995, was an old-fash- 
ioned "country doctor" in the finest 

sense of the term. He was the 

college physician for 34 years; 

served 24 years on the Board of 

Trustees; and for almost half a 

century was pysician, confidant, 

and friend to several generations of 

students, teachers, staff members, administrators, and 

townspeople in Mars Hill. 

His portrait and some of the interesting instru- 
ments used in his medical pracdce are on display in the 

college infirmary. His name graces a plaque in Blackwell 
Hall, signifying his generous financial contribution to the 
cost of that building. A scholarship awarded annually to 
a graduating pre-medical student bears his name, another 
testimony of his generosity. Amagnificant set of color 
drawings featuring numerous facets of human anatomy 
and physiology are among the teaching tools of the 
Biology Department, a generous gift from Dr. Duck and 
his son Sigsbee, also a physician. The fitness trail which 
winds across the campus from just behind the chapel to 
the Mail Street boundary of the campus bears his name. 

In fact, there is hardly a physical facility or an 
aspect of college operafion that hasn't benefitted from his 
generosity, his wisdom and understanding, and his life- 
time devotion to the college and its students. His profes- 
sional practice, his personal dedicadon were, indeed, 
built to last. 

A native of Madison County whose great grand- 
father. Berry Duck (1805-1865), was one of the founders 
of the college. Dr. Duck was closely associated with the 
school all his life. He earned a junior college diploma in 
1937, served as college physician fi-om 1952 until 1986, 
served six 4-year terms on the board of trustees, includ- 
ing several years as chairman, was honored as "Alumnus 

156 Faculty 

of the Year" in 1974, and awarded an 
honorary degree in 1986. 

"Otis Duck was one of God's 
miracle creations," said Dr. Fred Bentley 
president of the college. "He was the 
most talented individual I've known. 
God gave him a sixth sense, for he had 
diagnostic abilities which exceeded the 
usual practice by others. Perhaps it was 
because he loved each patient that he 
was able to see inside each and know 
what was wrong. He will be remem- 
bered as a practitioner, preceptor, writer 
and lecturer; but most of all he will be 
remembered as the most loving, compas- 
sionate friend we could ever have." 
Following graduation from Wake Forest College 
in 1 939 and Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia 
in 1943, Dr. Duck did his residency at Knoxville General 
Hospital. He entered the Army Medical Corps during 
World War II and served as commanding officer of a 
medical company during fierce combat in Europe. After 
the war he returned to Mars Hill and began private 

He did post-graduate study in obstetrics at 
Harvard University and its affiliate, Boston Lying-in 
Hospital. In 1952 he built the Community Medical 
Center in Mars Hill, where he practiced until his retire- 

Dr. Duck was of the last generation of doctors 
who made house calls; he made them until 1994, when 
his final illness prevented him from treating patrients. 
During the first 26 years of his practice he delivered 
more than 3,000 babies, many of those "home deliver- 
ies." For many years he served on the Maternal Welfare 
Committee of the North Carolina Medical Society, and 
he was especially proud of never having a maternal 

In community life over the years Dr. Duck served 
as chairman of the Madison County Board of Health, on 
the Madison County Board of Education, and on the 
Mars Hill Board of Aldermen. During 1992 and 1993 he 
was mayor of the town of Mars Hill. 

He was deeply involved in the Mars Hill Baptist 
Church, where he was a member of the board of deacons 
for more than 45 years.

A New Era Begins 

Dr. Fred Bentley stepped aside as president of the college on March 1, 
1996. He had stated earlier last year that he would step down if the Board of 
Trustees and the Presidential Search Committee found a suitable replacement 

that met the leadership requirements stated 
at "listening sessions" conducted by a group 
consisting of alumni, the Student Govern- 
ment Association, the Parents' Council, the 
National Alumni Board, and other groups. 

The search for the next president took 
months of extensive meetings, interviews, 
questionaires, and other actions. 

On December 20 Dr. Max Lennon was 
recommended unanimously as the next col- 
lege president. A 1 960 graduate of Mars 
Hill College, Lennon served as president of 
Clemson University from 1986 to 1994. 

Dr. Bentley will continue to serve out his 
last year (1996-97) at Mars Hill College by 
doing fund-raising and public relations duties. His time at MHC has been 
; one of positive financial growth and community involvement.

This year's theme, BUILT TO LAST, seemed the best way to describe a quality education at Mars Hill Col- 
lege. MHC has been in existence for a long time and and will continue to move into the next century long after we ai 
gone. Built to Last was chosen because it is symbolic of permanence, old school ties, and traditions. 

We need to thank several people, without whose help, there would not have been a yearbook. Adam Turem 
thanks for taking lots of pictures of the sports, clubs, cheerleaders, and so forth. Erik Barlik, thanks for writing cop 
helping with the class section, and most of all, for figuring out how to set up the Index on the computer. We'd like tc 
thank Heather Hughes and Becky Anderson for getting quotes, pictures, making layouts, and so much more. Also, 
we give our thanks to the rest of our staff for being such a enthusiastic group. Thanks guys! ! 

Well, it's finally done and we can all 
sit back and breathe a sigh of relief I've 
enjoyed helping to create a new and better 
yearbook, but I thank the Lord that it is over 

Many hours were spent working to 
make a yearbook that was different from all 
the others, one that students and faculty can 
be proud of Working on this addition of the 
LAUREL was an experience I will never 

Thank you Stephanie for being there 
when 1 couldn't and for everything! 


Jennifer McCaleb 

Putting together the yearbook has 
been an experience I will never forget. I 
found it a challenge, and a bit overwhelmin 
at times. However, despite the many sleep- 
less nights I've pulled during the semester i 
order to meet deadlines, the satisfaction of 
being part of this undertaking was worth it 

I'd like to thank The Hilltop, the 
Coaches, Ms. Stanz, and everyone else wh 
loaned photos to the LAUREL. 
I'd like to thank Kxisten for helping me wit 
copy,and so forth. And I'd especially like t 
thank Erik for helping me out with copy,et 
during Christmas Break, when he didn't ha 
to, and for setting up the Index section.
