Vorrn Life^A Step to )y\t>cpcnt>cncc 

Living in the dorm is one of the most exciting 
and enjoyable experiences a student can have 
while attending the Scooba Campus. 

Many students on campus consider their dorm 
to be their second home. 

"Living in a dorm gives one the responsibility to 
take a step forward in communication and 
understanding because you must learn to 
cooperate with a roommate," said Casey Finch. 

Staying in the dorm allows students to take a 
big step toward independence. It's a time for 
students to learn to stop relying on their parents 
for everything and start learning how to make 
decisions on their own. With the late night studies 
and the early morning fire alarms, the dorms are 
one of the most interesting places on campus. 
Dorm life allows students to take important steps 

toward responsibility and helps them to develop 
their dreams for the future. 

"Living in the dorm has been a very good 
experience for me. I have really learned a lot from 
it," said Nikki Truman. 

In the fall, the new girls honors dorm opened. 
While waiting for the opening, some girls had to 
live three to a room. Once the dorm opened, they 
had a chance to spread out and enjoy living two 
to a room. Because of an increase in enrollment, 
some of the boys had to live with three 
roommates, causing the rooms to be very 
cluttered. With the new living arrangements, most 
dorm students learned quickly that they would 
have to be cooperative to make living together 
While staying in the dorm, students meet many 

new people with different backgrounds, 
personalities, and interests. Students must learn to 
deal with all the different personalities and learn 
to get along with each other. 

Whether it's studying, hanging out with friends, 
or talking on the phone, students make many 
memories from living in the dorm. 

"Staying in the dorm has been a great 
experience for me. I have gotten to meet many 
new people and make many new friends. The best 
thing about the dorm is getting to hang out with 
my friends," said Brendan Manders. 

Some of the great steps in life, like friendships, 
memories, and experiences, are all made at the 
East Mississippi Community College residence

Steppins into the Art$...Vine Grove 

Over twenty years ago, a tradition began at 
EMCC that the students enjoy, the month long 
events of the Pine Grove Festival. This festival is 
held in April each year. It allows instructors, 
students, and people of the community the 
opportunity to celebrate the fine arts such as 
great performances, plays, literature, music, and 
art exhibits. 

On April I, 2004, the EMCC drama students 
performed "The Praying Mantis" in the Stennis 
Hall Auditorium and later performed "The 
Monkey's Paw" on April 27 as a dinner theatre. 
"The Monkey's Paw" was also performed on April 
28 in the cafeteria and was served with snacks 
and beverages. 

On April 7, the EMCC faculty and staff played a 
basketball game against the Technical Difficulties, 
a TV broadcast department, in the Keyes Currie 
Coliseum. The event was a fundraiser for the 
college's Chapel in the Pines project. 

Students also enjoyed Inflatable Fun and the 
mechanical bull held in the Student Activities 
Building. There was also a concert by Santa Fe. 

"The Santa Fe concert was the most fun I had in 
Scooba last year," said Beth Brownlee. "It was a 
great time and my friends and I really enjoyed it." 

There were band and choral concerts held after 
lunch one day on the back steps of the 
Administration Building. Desserts were also served 
after the concerts. 

An art exhibit was held where the Petrified Chil 
Dogs, a band made up of instructors Bobb^ 
Thrash, Terry Cherry, Bill Lauderdale, and Roi 
Posey, performed in the Student Center. / 
student band of John Warren, John Coleman, an< 
Jeremy Wright also performed. Students couk 
view amazing paintings and drawings and wer 
also able to participate in a silk painting exhibit. 

During this festival every student on campu 
can find something that relates to thei 
personalities. The festival ended with awards da' 
ceremonies and the annual presentation of a cop 
of the literary magazine, Syzygy, to Academi 
Dean John Perry.

Pie m the F^ee... Stepping itito ^ Mess 

During Homecoming Week on the Scooba 
Campus, the pie in the face at the Pep Rally has 
become one of the great traditions that the 
students enjoy. This event became a tradition five 
years ago, and it has grown to be the students' 
favorite activity during the week-long events of 

On "Hush Day", a day during Spirit Week, the 
cheerleaders wear a sign around their necks on 
which their names are written. They have to wear 
it all day long. If the cheerleader talks to anyone 
during this day she must give up her sign. It is 
very hard for the cheerleaders to remain silent on 
this day. Everyone is trying there hardest to carry 
on a conversation with one of them so that they 
can be the special person come Friday. Then on 
Friday during the Pep Rally the cheerleader will 

get pied by the person that she spoke to. 

The pies get gooier and tastier every year by 
adding marshmallow cream and chocolate and 
strawberry syrup. The cheerleaders stand and 
await their assailants to smash pies into their 
faces. The students standing around always 
manage to leave with pie all over themselves as 

"I never manage to get one of the cheerleaders' 
signs, but I did manage to get pie all over me, so I 
struck back by throwing one of my own," says 
Megan Whitaker. 

The Pep Rally always ends with the cheerleaders 
and students leaving a trail of whipped cream and 
marshmallow cream all the way back to the 

"The best part about getting pied in the face 

first was being able to get my revenge on 
everyone who threw pie at me," says sophomore 
Donnie Stokes. 

"I enjoyed slamming a pie into a cheerleader's 
face, and then getting smashed from behind with 
another pie," says sophomore Layla Ashtiyany. 
"The best part about the Pep Rally was the 
cheerleading stunts and the pieing in the face." 
The Pep Rally and pie event are great steps 
toward everlasting friendships. 

The hardest thing to do once all of this fun is 
over is getting back to the dorm and getting the 
marshmallow cream and chocolate syrup out of 
your hair. This is just a great day loaded with fun.

Inflatable ¥un.„ Ste\>\>\ns into ^ Goofc Time 

At the EMCC Scooba Campus, Inflatable Fun 
Day has become a tradition. Inflatable Fun always 
has many inflatable activities for students to enjoy 
with their friends. These usually consist of an 
obstacle course race, a bungee race, sumo 
wrestling, boxing, and jousting. 

This day brings many students together on 
campus to enjoy their time at Scooba. 

Sophomore Beth Brownlee said, "I really enjoy 
watching my friends make fools of themselves, 
and I love the whole experience." 

Students make many memories while playing on 
all of the inflatable activities. This is a time for 
students to enjoy fun competition, relax, and just 

forget about the worries of school. 

This day gives students the chance to come 
together and have amusing competitions against 
one another through the various activities. 
Students enjoy hitting one another and laughing 
about it when they fall down or lose a fight. 
This is a positive event that all the students can 
get involved in, whether by participating in the 
activities or by just laughing and enjoying 
watching their friends. 

Inflatable fun is held two days out of the 
school year. It is held during Homecoming Week 
and also once during the Spring. A new activity 
was introduced in the spring - mechanical bull 

riding. Students lined up to see who could stay on 
the bull the longest. Football coach Kelby 
Bowman also tried out the bull riding device, and 
did very well. 

"I enjoyed Inflatable Fun because I'm a very 
competitive person, and I loved being sprung back 
in the bungee race," says freshman Megan 
"Cornbread" Hester. 

The best part about this day is seeing the smiles 
on all the students' faces. In every direction you 
look, you won't find a frown anywhere. At 
EMCC, there are always activities going on to 
keep the students busy and full of smiles.

A Step in & Different Direction 

Like students, faculty, staff, and administrators 
like to have fun once in a while. Two events in the 
past year helped them loosen up and take a step 
in a fun direction: the Chapel basketball game and 
the annual convocation. 

The Chapel basketball game, held in the spring 
of 2004, was a chance for faculty, staff and 
administration to become basketball players and 
cheerleaders for a good cause. This new basketball 
team played against the Technical Difficulties, a 
team made up of people in the broadcast field and 
spearheaded by WTOK sports anchor Lindsey 

Students watched their favorite teachers battle 
it out with the Technical team, and they also got 
to see their teachers, dressed as cheerleaders, 
perform cheers and a pyramid. Mrs. Mary "M" 

Margaret Smith and Roxanne Williams helmed the 
band-aid station for any injuries, and fortunately, 
there were none but sore muscles the day after. 
Administrators Dr. Bud Smith and Mickey Stokes 
served as referees for the game. 

The EMCC team beat the Technical Difficulties 
in the last few seconds of the game, when EMCC 
assistant women's basketball coach Sharon 
Thompson made the winning shot. The game was 
not only a financial success for the Chapel, but a 
fun time for all. 

The convocation, held in August every year 
before students return, is a time for faculty and 
staff to listen to motivational speakers, receive 
new information, and catch up with each other 
before the school year begins. 

In addition to listening to a welcome from new 

administration and a great guest speaker, this 
year's convocation was filled with fun and games, 
including an egg race, basketball throw, karoake 
contest, and womanless beauty pageant. Faculty, 
staff and administrators were divided into teams 
for the contests. 

Faculty had to race across the gym floor with 
eggs in spoons, some created dance moves and 
backup singers to go with their karaoke contests, 
and the ladies had a great time preparing the men 
for the womanless beauty pageant. With lipstick, 
eye shadow, wigs, dresses, props, and prosthetic 
balloons added to give them that extra "oomph" 
the five brave men stepped around the gym for all 
to enjoy. The winner of the pageant was Jim 
Huerkamp, but it can be agreed upon by all 
involved that everyone was a winner that day.

One of the most fun activities throughout the 
year is considered to be Spirit Week. It is a week- 
long celebration that gets students, alumni, and 
faculty together to show their support for the 
college and its teams. This week has many steps 
in creating new friendships. 

The dress-up days are the most unique ways 
for the student body to show their school spirit 
and to support EMCC. The cheerleaders designate 
each day of the week as a different theme. This 
year's themes included camoflage day, Hollywood 
day, cowboy or hush day, tacky day, and spirit 

Dress-up days get the attention of the 
student body. The cheerleaders and the students 

who are bold enough to walk around campus 
displaying their fun and outragous outfits 
compete to decide who wins the best dressed for 
the week. 

"Even though I didn't participate in Spirt Week, 
I really enjoyed seeing everyone else dressed up to 
support East Mississippi Community College," 
says sophomore Brendan Manders. Everyone 
enjoys seeing the people who are proud to show 
their pride and spirit at EMCC. 

"All week long I enjoyed seeing people dressed 
up. I never knew if I was going to run into G.I. 
Jane, G.I. Joe, or the Marlboro man," says 
freshman Cierra E wings. 

"I love spirit week. It is so much fun to dress 

up each day and to show my school spirit. 
Homecoming Week was a blast," says sophomore 
Beth Brownlee. When Martha Stewart, who was 
Callie Everett, walked on campus, everyone put 
big smiles on because she showed up in her jailer's 

Spirit week is a great time for students 
because they actually show how much school 
spirit they have bottled up inside of them. As long 
as students show pride in East Mississippi 
Community College, the tradition of unique 
displays of school spirit will continue for many 
years to come.

The 2004 Beauty and Beau Pageant is a night 
of grace, elegance, and poise. The contestants 
nervously anticipate the parade of beauties and

"I had a lot of fun working on the pageant 
committee. Everything went smoothly, the stage 
was gorgeous, and the pagent contestants were 
beautiful. It turned out to be a very wonderful 

night all around," said Marie Gordon. 

There was also a group of students who helped 
make the night a succcess. These students 
volunteered their time and effort to help out 
where they might be needed. They worked 
backstage with the curtains and helped the 
contestants before they went out on stage. 
Others helped as ushers and handed out the 

During the pageant, 39 contestants boasted 
their evening formal wear as they were introduced 
to the judges by emcee Paul Miller. During the 
judging, the audience was entertained by the 
EMCC Reflections, who sang a few selections, and 
Miss LeAnn Palmer, who also sang a few songs. 

This year's top five beauties included Cari 
Campbell, Emily Ann Magee, Nikki Nipper, Erika 

Ryals, and Libby Myers. "I was very excited to be 
selected in the top five beauties because I didn't 
expect it," said contestant Libby Myers. "I felt 
very honored to be part of the pageant with all of 
those great girls." 

The top ten beauties also included Avis Bell, 
Audra Blackbourn, Eve Darnell, Angela Hudson, 
and Carrie Weaver. "The reason I entered the 
pageant was because the girls wanted me to, and 
I ended up having a lot of fun. The night turned 
out to be really great," said Jake Hand. 

As the night ended, Cari Campbell of Macon 
was announced Most Beautiful and Alan 
Robertson of DeKalb was announced Most 
Handsome. The night was a success thanks to the 
hard work that everyone put into it.

Homecoming... Ste\>x>m$ b^ck to the Memories 

Homecoming is a time of celebration and 
tradition. One day a year, students, friends, 
faculty, and alumni come together to catch up on 
old times and honor accomplishments. 

"It was very heart warming to watch the alumni 
reminisce about the past. I loved watching them 
hug and laugh. It brought a big smile to my 
face," says sophomore Ashley Baty. 

The day started with alumni events, including 
the induction of twelve members into the EMCC 
Sports Hall of Fame. Led by Mrs. Brenda 
DiMichele, Reflections provided entertainment at 
the annual banquet held in the Keyes Currie 

Alumnus Bubba Davis stated, "I loved listening 
to the entertainment during the banquet. It 
helped me to remember my singing days in 

During half-time ceremonies, the homecoming 
court was introduced. All the girls were very 
pretty, but one succeeded all the others. 
Sophomore Megan Whitaker was crowned Queen 
for Homecoming 2004. Following the game, a 
reception was held at the cafeteria for students, 
alumni, and their guests to attend. Even after a 
terrible loss, the alumni was still all smiles. This 
shows how East Mississippi Comminity College is 
a great step toward everlasting friendships. Even 

after all the years of being apart, the strong 
bonds of friendship were easily seen among 

Homecoming was sad when it ended with the 
team losing to East Central Community College. 
The day always gives rise to new and old 
memories alike. All the friends that you grow to 
love and all the people that you meet will never be 
forgotten. Homecoming will always be 
remembered many years after you leave all of 
your friends, and graduates of EMCC will take 
steps to return to this place they called home for 
two years.

Steppm5 into the Christmas Spirit 

Who has a beard that's long and white, and 
comes around on a special night? Santa Claus! 

Santa's elves greet children as they enter the 
door, bright lights gleam from the stage, and the 
kids cheer to see Santa - it's all part of the annual 
Frosty Follies Production. The EMCC Choir and 
Music Theatre Workshop enjoy singing and dancing 
to the songs remembered from childhood about 
favorite Christmas characters such as Santa and his 
reindeer, Rudolph, and Frosty the Snowman. This is 
an exciting production that gets all individuals, 
young and old alike, in the holiday spirit. 

The sevententh annual Frosty Follies, under the 
direction of Choral Director Brenda DiMichele, was

A Mis-Step M the North Pole 

You might think Santa Claus has it easy, but 
even he has his bad days. The comedy, "A Rough 
Night at the North Pole," was performed by the 
drama department on Dec. 7 and 8 in the East 
Room of the Cafeteria, to the delight of many. 

The play shows how Santa has to contend with 
a wife who serves him cookies and milk for every 
meal of his life, and with Eddie, a man-sized elf in 
training who continuously hits his head when he 
goes through the door, often steps in reindeer 
poo, and always calls Santa by the wrong names, 
such as Santa Cruz, and Santa Barbara. 

Making the evening worse is the appearance of 
a man named Noodle, who was so bad as a child 
that Santa left him coal in his stockings - while he 
was wearing them. In an effort to get revenge on 
Santa, Noodle, along with sidekick, Missy, trek to 

the North Pole to slip a watch on Santa while he's 
sleeping and then frame him for stealing the 
watch. Sheriff Clink, who never has problems with 
law breakers at the North Pole, sets out with 
Noodle and Missy to arrest Santa Claus. While 
Santa is in jail, Noodle plans to dress as Santa and 
deliver coal to all the children in the world. 

Santa, after spending some time being in jail, 
decides he has too much to do, and leaves. With 
two Santas wandering the Claus home, mayhem 
and confusion ensue. 

The cast included Casey Barnes as Santa, Toni 
Davenport as Mrs. Claus, Branden Deanes as 
Sheriff Clink, Jamus Elllis as Noodle, Laura Tubb 
as Missy, and Lee Johnson as Eddie. Kim Cyprian 
was the reindeer, Adam Neil was the pianist and 
soloist, Brett Outz the guitarist, Derrick Oats, 

Danielle Clay and Jessie Shambley were the hosts, 
and Justin Speed was in charge of sound. 

"I laughed so hard every time Eddie stepped in 
reindeer poo," said Rhonda Gigandet, switchboard 
operator for the Scooba campus. "That sheriff! 
Branden was made for the part. I loved it. It was 
great. My husband is not a theatre person, but he 
said he was so glad that he went because he was 
impressed with the performance." 

One of the performances was a dinner theatre. 
Over 50 guests enjoyed a salad, main course, and 
dessert between scenes of the play. Servers for the 
evening included Anna Marie Hailey, Chris Stokes, 
Amber Lancaster, Fred Robinson, Tyler Maxwell, 
Megan Whitaker, Heather Kirkland, Justin Best, 
Justin Faulkner, Callie Everett, Ashley Baty, and 
Briggs Bishop. - Carl Farris

"SCF is a great place to come to 
praise, fellowship, and to have 
fun. The speakers are very 
interesting to listen to. Their 
speeches are very inspiring to 
hear. They tell about what the 
Lord has done in their life." 
- Sliaron 'Knox

should experience. It is also a 
good way to meet new friends

Student Christian Fellowship meets every 
Monday at noon in Stennis Hall and every 
Wednesday night at the United Methodist 
Church. The students meet to pray, study the 
Bible, and fellowship with each other. The 
members also enjoy lunch and special guest 
speakers at their Monday meetings. 

"SCF is the greatest experience for me," said 
Nicholas Evans. "It has different denominations 
joining together to fellowship as one big group." 

The sponsors feel that by combining the 

denominations, it will help all students come 
together with one main goal in mind, and that is 
praising God's holy name. 

When asked what their favorite part of SCF was, 
Lee Johnson said "the food." The lunches are 
great, and many new students come just to see 
what everyone is making such a big deal about. 

"I enjoy the environment because it is a great 
place to be. Everyone is like family," said John 

SCF co-sponsors many programs for EMCC. See 

You at the Pole is an annual event in which 
students gather around the flag pole to pray. 
There is also devotion on this special day. 

SCF also began a day to remember: September 
11, 2001. This day is called God Bless America 
Day, and the events include a time to honor 
those who are serving in the military. 

SCF has been around for many years. It has 
been a source of encouragement to many EMCC 
students, and that is a step in the right direction.

were introduced to the busy but enjoyable work 
of running the concession stand at the first home 
football game. Forestry students always help with 
concession sales and grilling hamburgers for the 

The students have also been busy attending 
off-campus labs and mill tours to help introduce 
them to different industries within the forestry 

field. The Forest Products class tours many 
sawmills throughout the semester, including 
Barge Forest Products in Macon, Midsouth 
Lumber Inc. in Meridian, Hunt Forest Products, 
and the Red Hills Mining Co. in Ackerman. 

Forestry instructors, Andrew Couch and Bob 
Walker, are the advisers of the club. They keep 
their members active with the college and with 
their future careers. Bob Walker said that the 
Forestry Club is involved with the Adopt-A- 
Highway Program. Highway 16 on the south side 
of campus is the club's adopted highway. 

The project the club takes the most pride in is 
the fundraisers for the Chapel in the Pines. Last 
year, the club donated $1,000 to the EMCC 
Development Foundation to be earmarked for 
the Chapel building project, and they did so again 
this year. Throughout the semester the Forestry 
Club helps in the planning, cooking, and the 
costs of the meals for the chapel fundraising 
projects. It's clear that the members of the 
Forestry club are taking steps toward success.

The EMCC Lions haue a special team 
of talented people helping the nine 
athletic sports on campus. 

Being a trainer takes a lot of hard 
work and dedication. The head trainer 
is Chris Haralson. He has been doing 
athletic training as a professional for 
about four gears. Before that, he 
worked as a student trainer for fiue 
gears. Chris allows a handful of 
students who are interested in 
training and learning about the field 
to come help him at practice and 
games, just to get a feel of what it's 
like to be part of his world. 

The trainers are sophomore, Rshleg 
(Peanut) Holcombe and freshmen, 
Caseg Finch and Carlos Daniels. Theg 
learn mang important training 
techniques before stepping on the 
field. Theg learn how to wrap ankles, 
knees, and arms. Theg also know how

Being a trainer takes a lot more than 
just prouiding water for the plagers. 
Student trainers haue to get up earlg 
euerg morning to work before class, 
sometimes in between classes, and 
after class. It reallg takes a special 
person to be able to do that all the time.

But actually cheerleading is more than just tumbling, gelling, 
stunting, chanting and cheering. It's about leading the student

EMCC has picked 14 girls to lead their school not only at games 
but in euergdag actiuities. Theg all haue the status of a 
cheerleader, so theg know they haue to lead on and off the field

they are the pride of EMCC, so theg hue up to what they are 
known to be. 

The captain this year is Jodi Darnell. She is a true leader, with 
or without her poms in hand. She not only leads them on the 
field, but she is there for them off the field, too. In eueryone's 
mind, that's what a real captain is supposed to do. 

Being a cheerleader is a tough job, but someone has to do it. 
For euerg single step we make, theg'll be cheering us on along

soccer for a portion of her life and is 
willing to share what she knows with 
the team. 

The team will be led by three

Layla Rshtiyany and Taylor Milling, and 
defender Allison Morgan. Other 
sophomores include Libbg Denneg, 
Nicky Truman, and Charly Speed. 
Rlthough the returning players haue a

This year's season is Coach Baldner's 20th as head coach. To 
commemorate Coach Baldner's 20th season, a reunion was arranged 
to bring back players from teams from 1986 to 2004. Fifty players 
came to the reunion and participated in an alumni game that was 
diuided up so that the alums got the opportunity to play with their 
old teammates. This successful reunion is a real testament of how 
they haue loue for EMCC as well as the baseball program. Along with 
Coach Baldner on the coaching staff is Rssistant Coach Tong 
Montgomery who is in his seuenth gear here at EMCC. 

Rfter a successful run at the end of last season and in the Region 23 
Regional Tournament, Coach Baldner and the East Mississippi 
Communitg College Lions are looking forward to this gear's baseball 
season. Coach Baldner sags he expects this team to "compete each 
and euerg inning." Baldner adds, "This gear's team is a hard working, 
blue collar tgpe team that plags hard euerg game. Teams do not like 
to plag us in a big game setting." Buring the fall season the team

Football players enjoyed the Sophomore Banquet held in their 
honor in November. Players were given recognition and awards by 
the coaches for their hard work both on and off the field. 


The 70th volume of the 
Lion was published by stu- 
dents at EMCC, P.O. Box 
158, Scooba, MS 39358. 

The yearbook was printed 
by Herff Jones in 
Montgomery, Alabama, using 
QuarkXPress 6.0 and Adobe 
Photoshop. Homecoming 
court and pageant pictures

The theme "Every Single 
Step" was chosen to show how 
the college and its students are 
evolving with each change - or 
! step - it takes.

A Step into my Thoughts: 

I never would have dreamed when I chose to attend EMCC that I would be chosen the editor of the 2004 Lion Yearbook. However, since 
mo steps brought me to this position I can honestly say that it has been an experience I will never forget. Putting a yearbook 
together is not easy. A theme must be chosen, layouts must be designed, stories must be written, pictures must be taken, everything 
must be edited, and deadlines must be met. 

None of this would have been possible without an exceptional advisor and a great staff. I was blessed with both, and it has been a 
privilege for me to work with them. Our advisor, Mrs. Atwood, is a wonderful person that I have a lot of respect for and really admire. 
She has so much patience with the staff, and is always so calm when I get "antsy" about deadlines. She is someone that I will always 
remember, and I know that I will look back on her as a friendship made at EMCC. While we had a lot of new faces on the staff this \fear 
and they, as well as I, had a lot to learn, this yearbook would not have been possible without them. I would like to thank each of them 
from the bottom of my heart for their hard work and dedication to this publication. Thanks Mrs. Atwood, Jodi, libby, Beth, Jeri, Nikki, 
Christy. Katy. Monika. j.K.. and Holt. We have had "little disagreements." stressful deadlines, and a lot of laughs we have been 
through it all together, but I am proud of our finished product and feel that this is one of the best yearbooks EMCC has ever seen. 

On a personal note, I have made many memories here at EMCC. I feel that the classes I have taken here have truly prepared me for 
the degree I am seeking in Forensic Chemistry. I have the faculty and administrative staff to thank for that. Thank you all for the 
endless opportunities, countless friendships, wonderful memories, and the position as editor of the 2004 yearbook. It has been a 
privilege, god bless you alL I hope that you will use this yearbook years down the road to help you recall the memories that you 
made here with ^m^ single step.
