The Mount Vernon CoUege Yearbook Staff would bke to

dedicate the 1980-1981 Phoenix to Melinda Bordelon

and Rosemary Ferrigno. Without their guidance and

assistance there would not have even been a yearbook.

Rosemary, as Director of Student Activities, is a very

busy woman but she managed to organize a yearbook

staff, get things rolhng, and then she was always there to

help the staff work out problems. Melinda, as the Photog

raphy teacher, was an immense help

"VARIETIES"

It is a tradition here at Mt. Vernon, but a dreaded

one. On Friday, October 17 at 6:15 p.m.

the Fresh

men were locked in the gym to organize and practice

skits that were going to be performed on Saturday

night and the pressure

was on.

If successful the upperclassmen would approve the

performance and there would be no more signing in,

curfews or trash duty. Luckily the Class of 1984

succeeded and their skits were approved. Whew!


An interesting mixture of talent and just

plain fun, the Follies exhibited the talent in

many Mount Vernon students. The Judi

cial Board and Curtain Callers put in many

hours to pull all of the acts together and

everyone involved presented a production

far more elaborate than a talent show. It

was a fun night and a vital contribution to

Mount Vernon.

13


FOUNDER'S

DAY

The Mount Vernon birthday party is

always

a celebration. It was MVC's

105th and many helped to organize

and make the birthday party

a success.

Marta Istomin, Artistic Director of the

John F. Kennedy Center for the Per

forming Arts, was the special guest of

the college and spoke about her career

and the values of the Arts.

HALLOWEEN!


The was new Big-Sister/Little-Sister program this

year. Alexa Scott, Joan RUey, and Nancy Robbins

got it started with a pool party at the beginning of

the year. The program allows for upperclassmen to

help freshmen with their first year at college.

Throughout the year, the "sisters" held parties in the

pub and the was one.

MARILYS ERNST PERFORMS

MarUys Ernst graduated

in December but

before she left Mount Vernon, she performed

much of her music at a very special farewell

party in the pub. Marilys was the director of

the Curtain Callers and her musical talent

was a great asset to Mount Vernon.

WINTER WEEKEND

The Social League sponsers two big

Mount Vernon,

weekends at

one in the winter and one in the

spring. The Winter Weekend this year was a huge

success. A "Roaring 20's" party started it off, a

formal dance at the Pension Building the next night,

and a McDonald's brunch in the pub brought the

weekend to a close. Mt. Vernon students start

thinking about dates in September and the guys come

20

from all over!


22

Before everyone goes home for Christmas vacation it

is a always treat to have a Christmas celebration and

the Chapel Committee organized it this year. Phil

Bolton read a Christmas story, students sang along

with a Gospel

Choir and the antics and wonderful

harmonies of the Georgetown Chimes all made Mount

Vernon's Christmas very special.

24

CHRISTMAS!


26

The Beacon Honor Society, which is made

up of the students with honorable academic

achievements, sponsored a Christmas party

for the Maintenance staff at Mount Vernon.

It was a very special party and got everyone

in the Christmas spirit.


The Black Alliance Club is a very strong

organization

at Mount Vernon. Its mem

bers raised money for the Atlanta slayings

case, collected canned food for the poor,

honored Black History month by inviting

notable black speakers and musicians to

Mount Vernon and held a Christmas party

for foster children. This party was very

special and gave the children a true sense of

Christmas.

27


28

The International Club is an

organization of the many foreign

students at Mount Vernon.

Throughout the year they held

elaborate dinner parties like this

one at Christmas, which featured

debcious international cuisine.

SPECIAL EVENTS AT


THE PUB

Once a month the Pub Entertainment

Committee (PEC) a sponsored number of

Coffee Houses with live mellow music. The

music was quiet and relaxing and it was a great

break from studying and the regular bars in

town.

CONVERSATIONS WITH .

a special program where

notable are guests invited to speak in Post Hall on

issues pertaining to Mount Vernon students. There

were often interesting discussions that inspired all

who attended.


AND THEN

THE PARTIES!

What is the MVC Quad for? PARTIES! And every nice

Sunday during the fall and spring the Social League proved

it! The quad parties this year were always successful and a

lot of fun. There was plenty of beer, tunes, and sun. Some

of the dorms held parties too, and were equally successful.

DORM LIFE

Although Clark is not the largest dorm on

campus, it was full of surprises this year.

Judy Sessions, the house resident was fre

quently heard yeUing, "It's quiet hours!"

Could that be related to her library posi

tion? The girls who bved here had very

clean ankles due to the flooding showers,

and that wonderful fire drill at 5:00 a.m.?

It's been a great year!

to opt for a bttle "privacy" What they got were good legs

from trekking back and forth to classes! There were

advantages to bving in Pelham tough, bke those great porch

parties that are unique

to that dorm. And the cookouts

whose smells drove everyone crazy. Then there were the

baby powder, shaving

cream and water battles.

at Convocation in

September, it seemed as if the year 1980-81 was

going to be very promising and it was. Although

the first can year be difficult for a new president of a

college, Jane Evans has done a fantastic job. Be

cause she has taken the time to get to know Mount

about the school, its goals, needs, and achievements.

With her fresh enthusiasm and vitality. Mount Ver

A true sense of spirit held the 1980-81 basketbaU

team together this year. The players never gave up

and worked very hard. They won the last game of

the season, and Wynter Byrd

broke the school re

cord for points scored during the game.

Even though the soccer team was

just two years old this year, a

tremendous amount of spirit and

enthusiasm was exhibited by all

the players. Their wins and losses

came close to a tie and next year,

the team will be one year older and

have one more year of experience

MORE

PARTIES!!

Spring is a great time for parties and

there were lots of good times on the

quad this year. Plenty of beer and

tunes were sure attractions for guys

from the area schools not to mention

the shorts!


The Senior class bought two round-trip

tickets to the Bahamas and everyone brought

a suitcase to the party. One lucky person

won those tickets and took off for the sun.

Sandra Bensaude was the fortunate one this

year. Did she ever come back? If so, WHY?!

WEEKEND


(

This year's Spring Weekend included a party

in the dining ball and a brunch but the

highlight of the weekend was a night-cruise

on the Potomac. Cool (!) breezes aside, itwas

a great time for all.

SPRING CARNIVAL

The Spring Carnival was a huge

success and everyone had a great

time. There were rides for the kids

like the Moon bounce and the clown

car, and some of the booths included

a goldfish toss, dart booth, dunking

booth and a betting wheel. Ballons

were sold by

one dorm while another

raised money by throwing pies for a

price (a big "hit"!) There were

craftspersons, a flea market, bake

sale and other features. There was

lots of food but Bob's Famous Ice

Cream and beer were the big sellers.

It was a lot of fun and money raised

144

will go for a good cause.

Why does the faculty persist in submitting

themselves to the agony of defeat? They do a

great job of teaching

but when it comes to

strategy, they better try again!

Saying that a yearbook is not an easy thing to put together, is

definitely

an understatement!! But somehow, through all of our

inexperience, frustration, and worry, we did it! And now that our

job is finished, we hope that the 1980-81 Phoenix will hold many

memories that you will treasure now and in years to come. In that

way,

it has all been worth it.
