2002 Phoenix Dedication 
Mr. Edward A. Labry III 

Mr. Labry is a graduate of the Cumberland University Class of 1985. He is currently President of Concord EFS 
Inc. and its subsidiary EFS National Bank in Memphis, Tennessee. Concord is one of the leading online debit 
companies and has relationships with seventy percent of the supermarkets and fifty per cent of the top petroleum 
companies in the United States. 

The old Cumberland Univeristy Gymnasium, or "The Dawghouse," has been undergoing extensive renovations by 
means of a monetary contribution made by Mr. Labry. Built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration, the old 
gym served as the site for Cumberland's intercollegiate basketball games until 1 982 and then as a practice and intramural 
sports facility until the building of the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center. 

The classrooms in Labry Hall are scheduled to be ready for classes in the Fall 2002 term, with the completion of the 
offices to follow. 

Cumberland University wishes to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Labry for his continued support of the 
university, it students, and education.

The entire inaugural event was a very memorable one

The Commencement Address was delivered by The Honorable Roy Brasfield 
Herron, Senator of the 24th District of the State of Tennessee General Assembly. 
Mr. Herron told the graduates about his father graduating from Cumberland many 
years before. Mr. Brasfield then proceeded to explain the nine most important 
words to live by: Pray Hard, Play Hard, Work Hard, and Love Your Family. 
The entire day was filled with many congratulations, laughter, and tears. The 
feelings of pride and joy could be seen not only on the graduates' faces, but also on 
the faces of loved ones and friends. We would like to take this opportunity to 
congratulate the Cumberland University Class of 2002 on a job well done and wish 
them luck for a bright future.

The Process 

Possible donors had to go through a 
short screening process to ensure that 
guidelines were met. Below, Rachell 
Jones answers a few questions before 

"One cannot do 
everything, but even/one 
can do something." 


Cumberland University did its best 
to offer support and encouragement 
in a time of great distress and 
uncertainty. On our campus: 

The flag was lowered to half mast even 
before the strikes had actually ended, and 
a voluntary prayer service was held at the 
flagpole with students and faculty 
gathering in large number. Major Carl 
Wallace also spoke to students concerning 
US military involvement and terrorism. 

A blood drive was held in the gymnasium. 
The goal of 35 pints was exceeded when 39 
pints were donated by the end of the day. 
All sporting events were cancelled out of 
respect for the victims and their families. 
Students put flags on their vehicles and 
patriotic posters in their dorm room 

A security task force meeting was held on 
October 5, 2001. A Safety Committee 
made up of faculty, staff, students, and 
administration was formed to put together 
a disaster preparation plan for Cumberland 

Giving Life 

Many students chose to give support 
to victims and workers by donating 
blood. Below, Jonathon Winnett does 
his part to help fellow Americans. 


Many students and faculty offered 
support through thoughts and 
prayers. Everyone seemed to be 
in a state of shock and unbelief.

faced quite a long wait after signing in. However, the opportunity 
to help out fellow Americans in a time of crisis was well worth the 

Below: The voluntary prayer service was held in memory of those 
that lost their lives, in honor of their families, and in thanks to 
workers who were searching for survivors. Some people offered 
prayers, while others simply took a moment to reflect on the 
situation and somehow come to an understanding. 




Many people were completely 
shocked at the occurances on 
September 1 1 . Students and 
faculty seemed to wear expres- 
sions of disbelief for days. 

Power in Great Numbers 

Above: There were a great 
number of people attending the 
prayer service. They were 
scattered about the front of 
Memorial Hall surrounding the 


Although donating blood may 
be somewhat uncomfortable, 
everyone who donated 
seemed to be happy to do 
whatever they could to help 
those in need.

The Phoenix Ball 

The annual Phoenix Ball was held on June 2, 2001. The theme ions "By the Light of the Silvery Moon." Many 
faculty and staff members, honored guests, and students attended the event. Special guests included 
representatives of the Nashville Zoo who collected donations for the Nursing and Science Building that is to be 
built. All proceeds from The Phoenix Ball sponsored the roof repairs to Memorial Hall. 

The Chairpersons for the event were Representative Sam 
Stratton Bone, Jr. and his wife Marty.

Intramural Sports 

Intramural sports were a huge success this year. The number of student participants exceeded all previous years. The fall semester included a flag 
football league that was very competitive. The two time reigning champs got the title taken away from them this year by some older veteran students. 
An intramural pool league followed during the fall semester. Other intramural activities that took place during the fall 2001 semester included a 3 on 3 
basketball tournament, several ping pong tournaments, and a couple of pool tournaments. Prize money was given to the top three winners from each 
of these tournaments. Bowling Competitions took place a couple of times in the fall for all types of prizes including a new bowling ball and bag 
donated by Lebanon Lanes. Students also had the opportunity to play golf at the local golf range on designated days for a discounted price. 

The intramural sports for spring semester were men's and women's basketball, co-ed volleyball, and co-ed Softball. All three sports had a record 
number of students to sign-up and participate. In January, several practice nights were given to the students to get ready for the intramural basketball 
season. These open gym nights were a hit and showed student excitement for the intramural league to come. Co-ed volleyball is always a fun sport lor 
the intramural teams because it is not as intense as basketball and Softball. Once the weather got warmer, the intramural Softball league began with 
much anticipation. We played all of our games at Cedars of Lebanon State Park during the month of April. The intramural Softball nights drew large 
crowds of students that came to watch and cheer on their teams. Out of eight league teams, the winning learn ended with an undefeated record and 
received small iron paperweight trophies with a Softball on top. 

All of the intramural participants for the whole year received a complimentary T-shirt for being a part of each league. Each sport used its own type 
of style and design for the T-shirts. The referees that were used for the spring semester came from the Officiating Sports class at CU. These students 
were given college credit for fulfilling the hands on training through officiating basketball, volleyball, and Softball. Each intramural league ended with 
a single or double elimination tournament that decided the champion team. The regular season record determined where each team was seeded in the 
tournament. Bv Lihbv Brown

The Greek Experience 

Above: The Kappa Sigma Fraternity helped to build Bulldog 
Spirit with their Homecoming "Car Bash." Faculty and students 
had the opportunity to beat the car with hammers and sledge 
hammers. By the end of the day, the car looked pretty rough, 
but Bulldog Pride was shining. 

What exactly is it like to be Greek? Many Greeks will tell 
you that it requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but all 
will say that it means being a part of a unique group of 
people. Everyone can see that being Greek involves going 
to meetings, participating in Greek Week, and performing 
community service. However, most people do not under- 
stand that the most important part of being a Greek is the 
brotherhood or sisterhood among the individual organiza- 
tions. Only members can understand the neverending 
friendships and lifelong memories. Being a member of a 
fraternity or sorority is more than just belonging to another 
campus organization; it is being a member of a nationwide 
web of brothers or sisters that share a common bond. 

So what is it to be Greek? It is a choice. It is a journey 
is an unforgettable exprience.
