Jack ShockProfessor dedicates work to building Christian communicatorsThe 2008-09 Petit Jean dedication winner, Dr. Jack Shock, professorof communication, led his students by example, both academicallyand spiritually. When his former students heard he was the recipientfor the dedication, many of them wrote to relay memories of their favoriteprofessor.Shock’s classes were always unique, because he had held many interesting jobsbefore and during his time at Harding. His classes were full of stories from his earlyyears working in the public relations field. In 1995, he took on the role as formerPresident Bill Clinton’s director of letters and messages at the White House and healso worked with the American Red Cross, beginning just after 9/11 when 1993Harding graduate Darren Irby asked him to head to Ground Zero to be a publicaffairs technician. In 2005 he left for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina ravagedthe coastline to again work with the Red Cross.“I remember him talking to our class via speakerphone from the [World TradeCenter] site for one entire class period, sharing what he was doing and what he waslearning,” 2002 graduate Ryan Cook said.In the November 2, 2001 Bison, Cook wrote about Shock’s Red Cross work.“On the first day I was at Ground Zero, after about five minutes, they hadfound a fireman’s body,” Shock said in the article. “That was my introduction toGround Zero. It was a rude awakening to what I was going to see and experiencefor the next eight days.”On a public relations trip to New York in the spring of 2008, Shock led agroup of students back to Ground Zero to witness the progress of the constructionof the 9/11 memorial. Students were also able to see how Shock handledother disaster relief efforts when the American Red Cross again called on him inthe fall of 2005.“I will never forget the time his Red Cross duty called him to New Orleans in thewake of Hurricane Katrina,” 2008 graduate Molly Morris said. “He described therelief efforts via speakerphone as we listened back in class. Though he wasn’t therein person that morning, I don’t think a single person skipped class that day.”Shock used other methods to keep his students engaged in class.“He always tried to keep class interesting, especially the seemingly boring CommunicationLaw,” Cook said. “His songs to help us remember the Supreme Courtjustices and the First Amendment stand out still.”Beside his use of children’s songs for memorization, Shock used relevant issuesto discuss textbook concepts.“Dr. Shock stressed getting real-life experience to augment our academic workand worked hard to help open doors for us in that way; it wasn’t just talk,” 1990graduate Craig Cheatam said. “He incorporated issues from that day’s headlines intothe subjects he taught, showing how the knowledge we were gaining was preparingus for the time when we would be called upon to deal with those issues.”He also tried to get students thinking about their future outside of Harding.“He was a great encourager and wanted his students to aim high,” Cook said. “Heencouraged me and others to take the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund internship test.There was a run of [a couple of] years when someone from Harding was acceptedinto the program, no small feat for such a small program. That internship was myfirst major professional experience, and it has opened career doors ever since.”Others echoed Cheatam and Cook, adding that Shock’s use of his own careerexperiences were what inspired them to work hard.“The classes with J-Sho, as we called him, were nothing short of amazing,”2007 graduate Kate Dear said. “He knew how to command the class with rivetingdetails and stories. Press and Society, the class we all originally dreaded, became ourfavorite as we were able to freely interact with Dr. Shock and learn from him in away that spurred us on to greater, thinking not only as students but as the adultsthat we soon were to become.”One student, who later went on to work as the director of news services andpublic relations for Harding, was April Fatula.“When I arrived at Harding as a freshman, I already knew I wanted to major inprint journalism,” Fatula said. “Dr. Shock was working at the White House then,but even in his absence, it didn’t take me long to figure out that he was somewhata rock star in the department and on campus in general. Through Jack and hisconnections, I have attended movie premieres, chauffeured dignitaries and metfellow journalist Lester Holt.”Along with his arsenal of public relations stories, Shock also brought humorinto his classes.“As a freshman, I jotted down practically every word he said,” Morris said. “Idedicated a section of my notebook to what I titled, “Shocking Facts! Fun factsabout Dr. Shock-Collect ‘em all!” Any time Dr. Shock revealed something abouthimself, we put it on the list. We knew his favorite color, green, which childhoodteacher taught him to type 106 words-per-minute, Ms. Annie May Hamilton, andthe name of the paint color he used in his home, Murmur.”Others relayed stories of Shock’s amiable nature.“He was a great sport when we took advantage of his hospitality to “kidnap” acherished childhood toy of his and held it for ransom,” Cheatam said. “To this day,the sock monkey is the chosen icon to represent my fellow classmates’ relationshipto Dr. Shock, and every time I see one I think of him.”Besides his encouragement in the classroom and his humor, most of his studentsagreed that it was his personal interest in them that they remembered the most.“Dr. Jack Shock is not the average professor,” 2008 graduate Kristin Kelleysaid. “He takes time and energy to forge meaningful relationships with students,establishing a confidence seldom seen with other teachers. He is truly interested inwatching students succeed in their career, and his enthusiasm for public relationsand journalism makes me excited for future job opportunities.”Shock’s greatest goal for his students was for them to succeed as Christiancommunicators in any field they chose to go into after graduation.“As seniors, he invited us into his home for a Christmas dinner and prayed thatwe would be influential as Christian communicators,” Morris said. “I think we alljust hope to be as inspiring to one person as he has been to hundreds.”Dear said that one of her favorite memories of Shock was the day before hergraduation in May of 2007.“With many of us already in tears, he spoke to us, this time not about a funnystory or with a deep intellectual thought, but with words that will remain with methroughout my career and my life that he has touched so deeply,” Dear said.Shock brought out a Bible and read from Joshua 3:5: “Consecrate yourselves,for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”“Although many of us were scared to death of what the future held, he wasvery reassuring that we would surely succeed,” Dear said.One of Shock’s most important lessons to his students was his emphasis onwhat they were doing the day after graduation.“After classes with Dr. Shock, I feel like there’s not a question of if I’ll land mydream job someday, but when,” Kelley said. “I feel equipped, excited and readyfor the professional world.”Fatula also agreed saying that her friendship with Shock was important as astudent and also as a colleague.“He respects his students and their goals and goes out of his way to help makethose goals reality,” she said. “I have had the distinct privilege of calling Jack Shockmy professor, colleague and friend.”With all of his public relations experiences, his humor and dedication to hisstudents, it was no wonder that alumni from all over wanted the chance to sharetheir memories of Dr. Jack Shock. So many wanted to say thank you to the manwho influenced their lives the most while they attended Harding.Katie Ramirez8 opening

There are aspects of our lives at Harding that we,as students, take for granted. We sometimes forgetthe unique opportunities that are available to us.Year after year, a new freshmen class is introduced toHarding’s campus, groups of students travel abroadfor three months at a time, spring break campaignsallow students to experience mission work and thousandsof people flock to Searcy to watch Spring Sing.The traditions of Harding are unique. For only fouryears of our lives, we are able to break away fromhome, develop our individuality and experience theopportunities Harding has to offer. If we let them,studenttaking part in these traditions will help shapelifeus intothe person God wants us to be.Hannah Waredivision 11


the unsung heroesof spring singWith the lights dimmed and the curtainpulled, the expectant audience shuffledthrough the aisles and into seats asthey flipped through their programs. Little didthey know that a completely different worldexisted behind the scenes of Spring Sing. Propsneeded to be set up. Microphones neededchecking. Lights needed to be cued.Craig Jones, the choral director for HardingAcademy, was one of the people workingbehind the scenes, training the hosts, hostessesand ensemble to sing to the best of theirability. Jones helped with Spring Sing vocaltraining for the past five years.“It’s a joy to watch all of the areas cometogether to make a show, and the energy thecollege students bring is fantastic!” Jonessaid.Jones began the vocal rehearsal process ofSpring Sing very early. The theme and potentialsong selections for the 2008 show werechosen before the 2007 performance. Afterbeing selected, the hosts and hostesses wenton a weekend excursion to Branson, Mo., tosee shows and come up with ideas that theycould utilize in their performances.Actual vocal rehearsals began in earlyJanuary before the March show and continuedup to three times a week to prepare for thechoreography. Jones trained the students withscales and pronunciation exercises.“I constantly reminded [the hosts andhostesses] of little tricks to help them rememberwords or notes or how we want acertain phrase sung and to put that togetherwith the choreography so that every spot ofthe song ‘sells’,” Jones said.Event Specialist David Robison, another12 student life

He said that his team drilled holes,laid cables and set up wireless microphone systemsfor everything to work, while also making none of itvisible. There were around 56 different channels andtwo sound operating boards that Robison and histeam had to control. There were also two differentsound systems, one for what the audience neededto hear and one for what the performers needed tohear. Robison also helped the clubs record the vocaltracks for their shows.Two weeks before Spring Sing premiered, Robisonattended each rehearsal, making sure all microphonelevels were correct and balanced.“If I do my job right, no one notices, and my rewardis seeing the students enjoy themselves and put on thevery best performance they can,” Robison said.Staff member Sue Moore was in charge of sellingthe tickets for Spring Sing. According to Moore, morethan 9,000 people watched the four different SpringSing shows. It was the fourth year for the tickets tobe sold online, which made Moore’s job a lot easier.Students and locals were given a chance to buy ticketsa day before the general public could.“[The ticket booth] is definitely busier aroundSpring Sing time,” Moore said. “[On] the first day,there is always a long line of people at one o’clockready to buy the tickets.”Since she was in the ticket booth for the first 30minutes of the show making sure the spectators gottheir tickets and were in the correct seats, Moorerarely got the opportunity to see the beginning ofthe show.“If you can get the people here and in the auditorium,then it doesn’t matter what seat they’re in— they will enjoy it,” Moore said.Also working behind the scenes was Steve Martinof Benson Auditorium Technical Services. Martinwas in charge of all the lighting that went into SpringSing. He researched, rented and coordinated all thedifferent types of lighting and made sure they wenton and off at the right times. Martin began preparingfor Spring Sing in January as well. Because he alsoran chapel, his days consisted of going straight fromworking chapel to preparing for Spring Sing.These behind the scenes workers and a conglomerationof many others had to work together long beforeopening night to ensure successful performances.“A cooperative spirit [must be] among all parties,particularly backstage,” Martin said. “This can makeor break Spring Sing.”Christie Cronk and Rachel Klemmerspring sing 13

eginning the year withserviceIn late August, hundreds of new students arrived in Searcy a few days aheadof schedule to attend Student Impact. The week consisted of an array ofactivities designed to prepare new students for the school year and help thembecome oriented with the campus and its amenities.Beyond showing students where the library was located, where they couldpurchase their textbooks and how to use their DCB, Impact also included activitiesthat correlated with Harding’s Christian mission, such as participating inservice projects around the Searcy community.“Our service projects show incoming freshmen that service is important toHarding and a big part of what we do here,” junior Melissa Ritchie, the Impactservice project director, said.Ritchie said that many Impact group leaders helped her prepare and superviseseveral service projects, which took place Sunday afternoon, the day beforeclasses began. The service projects ranged in variety and included activities suchas recycling, picking up trash, visiting residents at nursing homes, crushing cansand writing letters of encouragement to those in need.While Ritchie did not have an official count of how many freshmen participatedin the seven different projects, she and her staff were extremely pleasedwith how many students were willing to help.“I think the service project shows that Harding students really care about thecommunity,” Ritchie said.Second-year freshman John Muhlhauser, an Impact group leader, helpedsupervise a project to clean and crush a mound of cans so that the SunshineSchool, a local program aiding individuals with special needs, could turn in thecans for money.“Not only did we get the chance to serve others, we had a great time doingit,” Muhlhauser said. “We also got a little creative by using a truck to crush someof the cans.”Freshman Emily Betts helped with the service project at the Sunshine School.While she felt that crushing cans could be gross at times, she was glad to helpout.“Doing a service project for the first time at Harding within a Christian settingwas a unique experience for me,” Betts said. “I’m looking forward to furtheropportunities.”Student Impact went beyond allowing students a smoother transition into thefirst week of classes. Not only did they learn their way around campus, but theysaw first-hand that service was an integral part of the Harding community.Zach Welch16 student life

Many knew friends or relativesthat played the lead roles or participated in theensemble, but one man who held all of thesepieces together could not be seen center stage.Professor of communications Robin Miller wasthe director for the musical and had directedmany previous Homecoming musicals.Miller came to Harding as a student in1973, graduated in 1977 and returned in 1980as a professor in the theater department. In1985, Miller began directing the Homecomingmusicals and directed most of the musicalssince that year. Miller said that working withthe students was his motivation for staying atHarding for over 20 years.“[I’m still here because I’m] working in aplace to see students grow and in a place I canshare God,” Miller said.Over the years, Miller always wanted toteach. He said it was a part of who he was,and he could not get away from it.“Many years ago I thought about changing[jobs], but it’s what I’m drawn to,” Miller said.“It’s working with people that I care about.”Miller did not always have the mostconventional class settings since some of hisclasses were held in the rehearsal hall, but hestill felt that these times with students werevital. He enjoyed seeing students use theirskills and learn something new at the sametime. Miller had one big lesson that he wantedhis students to learn.“[Their] identity is not in their job, theirrole or the applause when the show is over,”Miller said. “It’s in Christ.”18 student life


ockin’RobinMiller and the others he worked with startedplanning the next musical nearly a year before itsdebut. In December and January, they were alreadyheavily involved with the planning and decisionmaking.Even after so many years, Miller kept thecreativity flowing.“In ways, [staying creative] is not difficult,”Miller said. “Each show has a different script.Even when you do the same show again, you lookat ways to improve it.”Many of his students and coworkers appreciatedthe things that Miller offered the theaterdepartment.“Mr. Miller is acutely aware of the students’need to balance their spirtual, emotional, academicand social lives,” Dr. Morris Ellis, professor ofcommunications, said, “but his greatest concernis about their relationship with God.”Producer Cindee Stockstill agreed that Millerhad a holistic view of the musical, theater andlife in general.“He is able to see the whole picture and notget caught up in one aspect of the show overanother,” Stockstill said. “He teaches his studentsabout this [as well].”The faculty told stories about how Miller wasable to admit his faults and ask for help and adviceand how he focused more on the students’ spiritualand emotional lives than any of their performanceskills. It was evident to many that he did not focuson himself, but that his whole focus was on thestudents he taught and mentored each day.“What I enjoy most about Mr. Miller is his example,”junior Tessa Tunnell said. “He always looksto the Lord for guidance in selecting the musicaland in directing it. He truly models for us how tobe good role models and examples to others.”Farron Martinhomecoming 19

the eventSof the yearocial clubs and other organizations on campus provided students with many opportunitiesto attend functions and events, whether they were formals or themed affairs. However,since participation was limited to club membership, all students did not get the chance totake part. The Student Association wanted to create an event open to all members of the studentbody. SA Vice President Megan Reese, a senior, thought it was extremely important for such anevent to take place.“Not every student at Harding has the opportunity to attend a club function, so we wanted tocreate one that everyone could enjoy, despite what social circle they were in,” Reese said.The SA created and sponsored The Event, Harding’s first school-wide function. The goalwas to make the function accessible and fun for everyone. The back room of the cafeteria wastransformed into a dining hall; the meal was catered by Aramark.“The caf food was at the top of its game,” Reese said. “It was all so nice. We had greatfood, pretty centerpieces and linens, and everyone was dressed well. It really felt like a nice nightout.”The only payment for the night of festivities was two swipes of a student’s ID card, comparedto a normal cafeteria entry-fee of one swipe.The main event of the evening was the date auction that followed the meal. Eleven ofHarding’s bachelors were put up for auction. Two of those men, cousins Drew Dell, a senior,and Harrison Dell, a sophomore, were sold as a pair.“Before the auction, I was hesitant to even go up to the front because I thought the wholething would be a bust,” Drew said. “I thought maybe the highest bidder would pay $10 or$15.”But he was definitely wrong. At first, both said they felt a little awkward while being sold offto the highest bidder, but it was not until they stepped outside of their comfort zones that theprices started to soar.“We both tried to do stupid stuff to try to get the attention off of us, and as soon as I heard$120, I didn’t believe it,” Drew said.Despite their fears, Drew and Harrison earned the highest bid of the evening, even thoughthey were sold as a double-date.The auction was an overwhelming success. The female students in attendance opened theirwallets and were ready to pay up for their chance to go on a date with one of the bachelors.Junior Kalyn Heid had not planned on participating in the auction at The Event, but cameonly to support her friend who was going to bid. However, her plans quickly changed.“When we all saw who was up for bid, my friends told me to bid,” Heid said. “So I did. Iguess you could say it was peer pressure.”Once Heid started to bid, she found herself unable to stop despite any financial complicationsthat would result.“The whole time I was thinking, ‘I can’t believe I am actually doing this. How in the worldwill I pay for this if I win? I’m broke!’ ” Heid said. “It was definitely an experience because it wassomething I would have never done.”Luckily, depending on the perspective, Heid did not win the auction and was not forced toface financial woes.After freshman Logan Callier’s turn on the auction block, he quickly made plans with hisdate.“For our date, we are going to go to sonic and Wal-Mart, and we are going to the park to walkthrough the Christmas lights,” he said.Altogether, the date auction raised $605. The SA donated all of the proceeds to Habitat forHumanity.“We were totally blown away by the great participation we had,” Reese said. “So many peoplecame out for The Event, and so much money was raised for a great cause. I think this just showsus that no matter how much we may be consumed by our own little circles, our school has a greatsince of unity. If anything, The Event has proven the need for more activities like that.”Hannah Warecampus activities 23

differentworlds,samesportSophomore Moses Rotich from Kapchorwa,Uganda, came to Harding witha plan to run for the cross countryteam. Once he set foot on campus, however,he had a change of heart. Rotich saw thesoccer team playing and was reminded ofhow much he loved the sport. He playedsoccer since he was in secondary boardingschool — similar to American junior highschool.“In boarding school we played soccer allthe time, and I came to love it with a passion,”Rotich said.Coming to the U.S. was a big adjustmentfor Rotich. Stereotypes existed in Africa aboutAmerican soccer, but joining the Harding teamgradually changed his thinking. Practices wereas intense at Harding as they were at his home,and there were some different rules to getused to. The weather, however, was Rotich’sbiggest adjustment.“I have never lived in a humid place before,and the weather here changes so fast,” Rotichsaid. “I remember when I first tried out forthe team. It was so humid, and I felt like Icouldn’t breathe that day.”One of Rotich’s biggest challenges wascommunicating with his teammates. He was alittle intimidated because he had such a thickAfrican accent and started out very quiet withthe other soccer players.“After a few days though, I learned thatit is very difficult to isolate yourself in theUnited States,” Rotich said. “The guys would26 student life

At home, the coach-teamrelationship was mainly on the field. Harrishelped build the team by inviting them overto his house to relax and have fun outsideof practice.Rotich said he always wanted to go to aChristian school in the U.S. A Harding alumnusand friend of his father recommendedHarding to him.“I wanted a good Christian educationin the U.S., and Harding seemed to be theplace,” Rotich said.Not only did he have to make adjustmentson the soccer field, but he also found there werea lot of social and educational differences.He experienced many of the same difficultiesmost African students faced. Thehardest part was socializing because theEnglish accent was very different from theirAfrican accent.“[Most African students] don’t normallyfeel confident enough to interact freely, so itwas only natural that I experienced the sameproblems,” Rotich said. “The education systemhere was somewhat different and hi-tech, whichI wasn’t used to, but I adapted quickly.”Rotich also discovered that he had morefree time because his classes did not seem tobe as hard as at home. In Uganda, he said hehad many sleepless nights studying for hisclasses, but his schedule at Harding was alittle more relaxed.Through all of the adjustments andchanges from Uganda to the U.S., Rotichadapted well.“Harding has been a home away from homefor me because I have made so many goodfriends who always try to help me when I needit, and the professors and everyone else I meeton campus are just so friendly,” Rotich said. “Itherefore interact freely with everyone, and I haveadjusted quite well in this kind of environment.”Bethany Loftisinternational students 27


leadershipstarts youngHarding’s mission statement stated, “Integrating Faith, Living and Learning,” meaning thatHarding wanted to provide students with opportunities to incorporate their Christianbeliefs with the rest of their lives. One opportunity Harding provided for its studentswas through spring break campaigns.Every year, hundreds of students devoted their spring break to spreading the gospel to placesaround the world. Campaign groups traveled across the United States, Canada and to manyother countries including Ukraine, Haiti and Honduras. However, the most unique aspect ofthe spring break campaigns was not the location, but the leadership that took place long beforeanyone left for the break.Starting eight to nine months earlier, student volunteers began working on the campaigns for2008. Recent graduate Nicholas May, the student director and finance director, was the liaisonbetween the spring break missions office and the participating students.“It was a nice way to get involved with students that I would not normally see or interactwith,” May said. “There was always an inspirational story from the students that affirmed thateven working for just a week was worthwhile.”Junior Brice Priestly led an individual group campaign in 2007 and was asked to be the traveldirector over all of the 2008 campaigns.“Missions are important,” Priestly said, “But if you can’t get the people there in a safe andefficient way, the mission can’t happen.”Priestly knew that even though his job would not directly affect the people being servedthrough the campaigns, he realized that any way he was able to help would allow the trips torun more smoothly.“Just being a part in any way, we were able to serve and do so much good for so many peoplewho needed to hear the gospel,” Priestly said.Nathan Copeland, assistant to the president, oversaw the spring break campaigns and helpedthe student leaders as they worked towards successful campaigns.“When I saw all the student leaders get so passionate about preparing to serve, [it] forced meto think critically about how I choose to use my life for the Lord,” Copeland said.Students who led the campaign groups had more of a direct influence on the outcomes oftheir campaigns. Recent graduate Luckson Previl led a campaign to his home country, Haiti.The goal of this group’s campaign was to encourage church members and children by paintingchurch buildings and hosting a vacation Bible school. Previl, who understood the culture shockthat could potentially affect students, was able to prepare his teammates for a trip that wouldbe trying.“The students just needed to be willing to go out of their comfort zone,” Previl said. “Irealize that for lots of kids at [Harding], the poverty of Haiti is something that most peoplehave never seen before.”Though student leaders began working many months in advance, they were still faced withobstacles. Similar to any event that needed planning, Harding’s spring break campaigns had theirchallenges to be overcome.“Challenges in the pre-stages were things such as working with the contacts at different locations.We were working on both their schedules and ours to get everything together,” May said.“And there were always students who just don’t seem to cooperate with what you ask them todo, whether it was [missing] deadlines or having no apparent concern for money.”For Priestly, his challenges were keeping students accountable to their teams.“We start so early in the year that in the beginning, people get excited and sign up for thecampaigns,” Priestly said. “But the year rolls around and people lose interest. They want to doother, more exciting things. Keeping those students on their teams and active members is thebiggest challenge.”Even through difficulties, these leaders felt that using their gifts and abilities was well worththe effort.“It is important for Harding to be involved in missions. Harding, as a Christian institution, andour students should be involved because they get a chance to see how people really live in otherparts of the world,” Previl said. “In America, it’s very different from how people live in Europeor Asia. I complain about the [cafeteria] food, but then I think about how people in my countryare starving. Mission trips open your eyes and make you more thankful for what you have.”Hannah Ware28 student life

However,some students found out that they were actuallythe ones being helped; they were the onesbeing aided.During the summer of 2008, 13 students fromHarding went to Chimala, Tanzania, in Africaand worked at the Chimala Mission Hospital. Atthe end of the trip, they realized they were theones who were blessed from their experiences.The mission began when students suppliedmedical care, provided teaching sessions for thedoctors and nurses and encouraged membersfrom the surrounding churches.“We did a lot of health care teaching andcommunity health promotion in remote villages,”senior JM Corella said. “This teaching includedthe recognition of early signs and symptomsof illnesses such as malaria, pneumonia anddehydration.”Corella added that the group also held amother/child clinic where they gave vaccinationsand weighed babies to ensure adequate growthand development through their years.While the students worked at these things,they slowly began to realize that they were gainingmuch more than they were giving.“God was teaching us a lot about Himselfand about ourselves in relation to Him and thisworld that He created,” Corella said.The group also felt that getting outside oftheir cultural comfort zones enabled them tolearn things that would not have been possibleotherwise.“I was able to see and experience things inAfrica that I will never be able to see in the states,”senior Jes Ellis said. “Every cultural experiencestrengthens me as a person and as a nurse. I sawtrue pain and suffering, along with the awesomepower of God.”While in Africa, the students had the opportunityto meet a young woman named Roza withan interesting story. Before the group arrived atChimala, Roza had a baby named Daniel. Unfortunately,she developed complications because ofthe caesarean section and had a terrible infectionin her abdomen. After being admitted to the localhospital, the only person who was with Roza wasBibi, the baby’s grandmother. Bibi was ashamedof the way her son, Daniel’s father, treated Roza,so she stayed with Roza in the hospital to helpher and her grandson.Even though she was in the hospital, Roza didnot get better. After many days of trying to cureher, the doctors told Roza that they could not doanything else for her. This news was hard for bothRoza and Bibi. Trying to ease the situation, thestudents took their Bibles and read scriptures toBibi. Through a translator, she told them that shewas a member of the church in Chimala and thatshe appreciated them reading and sharing with her.Soon, Roza expressed her interest in the Bible andshortly after was baptized into Christ in a bathtubat one of the missionary’s houses.“On the way back to the hospital, we weresinging songs, and Roza had this look of peace on30 student life


a faithfulhealingher face,” Corella recalled. “She closed her eyes andstarted humming even though she did not knowthe songs we were singing. We all just witnessedthe work of the Lord and the joy that only comesfrom having Jesus as your savior.”The transformation that occurred in Roza’slife was evident to everyone around her.“From then on, she seemed very calm and atpeace with her condition,” senior Kendyll Helfsaid. “She smiled and would always hold out herhand for us to come say hello. The change in herdemeanor and attitude is truly a testament of whatGod can do in someone’s life.”Roza was discharged from the hospital thefinal day that the students were in Chimala. Thelast news they heard about her was that she wasgaining her strength back, but it was a slow anddifficult process.“Even if she was in pain, she always welcomedus with a smile and would often say ‘ninamshukuruMungu kwa wewe’ which in Swahili means ‘I amthankful to God for you,’” Corella said.Ellis, Helf and Corella all agreed that their timespent in Africa was a life-changing event.They learned things that were necessary forthem to succeed in their field of study, gainedconfidence in caring for and treating illnessesand had first-hand interactions with real peopleand their problems. But the most importantthing that they learned was how God worked inpeople’s lives.“The most valuable aspect of our trip wasthe relationships that we shared in,” Corella said.“We grew as a mission team, we grew close withthe missionaries and the hospital staff, we grewwith numerous patients and ultimately we grewwith our Heavenly Father. All of us would saythat this was the single greatest thing we tookfrom this trip.”The students that went on this medical missionreturned home to the U.S. as different people.They were changed by the things they saw andexperienced. Their memories of Africa and ofGod, still very much alive, will remain with themwherever they go.Rebecca Harrellsummer campaigns 31


more than justkeeping scoreIntramural sports offered students an opportunityto compete in athletic competition withouthaving to be a part of the official collegiate teams.Ranging from softball to swimming, students competedon teams or head-to-head. However, therewere student workers behind this whole processthat many participants did not take into account.“Working intramurals is not an easy job,” seniorMatt Tate said. “A lot of people think that we don’tdo that much, but without us, there wouldn’t be anyintramurals.”Intramural workers went to the fields andcourts early to set up the scoreboards, place thebases or put up the nets. The workers made suregames were played fairly and kept the games going.They calmed irritated players, assisted the injuredand were the gears to a machine that many peopledid not give credit to.Senior Kellie DeAtley had worked intramuralssince her first semester at Harding in 2006.

Noah Darnella different view on the way things were donebecause she worked with the women’s intramuralevents.“Being a part of intramurals is a fun experience.I love seeing my friends play sports,”DeAtley said. “Working the games lets me getoutside of school for a while.”Intramurals certainly took up a good portionof time though. Workers got to pick whento work, typically picking between six to sevenone-hour shifts a week. Intramural staff also receivedpayment through work-study.“It isn’t that hard to balance school andwork. The scheduling allows for you to workwhen you can,” senior Brice Carter said. “Ifyou have something you need to be doing, thenyou can let someone else have that shift.”On Dec. 5, the intramural staff got togetherto have the annual Intramural Worker Challenge.The group went bowling, ate at Ryan’sFamily Steak House and played different sportsin the Ganus Athletic Center afterwards.“We play pickle ball, table tennis, basketballand other sports,” Carter said. “When youwin an event, you get points. At the end, whoeverhas the most points gets to take home theplaque.”Some viewed the intramural workers as theunsung heroes behind the scenes of intramuralsports. Coach Jim Gowan attested to that.Gowan, director of men’s intramurals for 13years, said he was an avid sports fan and lovedbeing a part of this group.“I have a great group of guys this semester,”Gowan said. “They are incredibly responsible.They show up on time. They work hard,and I couldn’t ask any more from them.

living on astudent’s budgetAs gas prices rose and the economy becameunstable, Harding students foundthemselves doing anything to save money.Many students had to figure out a way to havefun and not break the bank by doing so. Thedrive to Little Rock turned out to be quiteexpensive, and much imagination was requiredfor an adventurous night in Searcy.“Little Rock is bigger and has more options,but give Searcy some credit,” senior MeganLankford said. “It is constantly growing. Searcyhas its hidden treasures.”Students discovered many activities to attendon campus that proved to be fun and exciting.The Campus Activities Board presented inexpensiveconcerts, movies and a talent show forthose who wanted to save on driving costs andwere more willing to stay on campus.“CAB brings [concerts and movies] tocampus so that you can save money on gas.Instead of having to drive somewhere, you canwalk,” graduate student Matt Perring said. “Theconcerts also give you a chance to have moreone-on-one contact with the artists because it’sa smaller setting.”Off campus, some businesses had deals thathelped out when money was tight. Fast foodrestaurants like Wendy’s, Lenny’s Sub Shopand Quizno’s had different nights where theyoffered food at discounted prices.“One thing you can do to save some moneyis ask for a Harding discount,” senior AshleyHopkins said. “Most stores in Searcy, evennicer boutiques, will offer discounts to Hardingstudents if you ask.”On the town square in Searcy, the Rialto34 student life

With the nostalgia of an old-time,one room theater, the Rialto provided a fantasticsupply of amusement without having to pay thehigher prices at surrounding theaters.“One of my favorite places to go is theRialto,” junior Kyle Binkley said. “It is a cheapand fun way to catch a somewhat old but stillgood movie.”Also on the town square, students foundsouthern comfort at Bobby’s, a local family- ownedrestaurant with real home cooking. Serving onlybreakfast and lunch, Bobby’s made a name foritself in its reasonable prices.“You are not a health nut if you are going toBobby’s,” senior Cory Miller said. “It has regularcustomers, cheap hearty food and reliable service.I always enjoy Bobby’s every time I go.”To save even more money, students also tookadvantage of coupons and discounts. SeniorClaire Austelle had her family save extra grocerystore coupons from the Sunday newspaper.When she went home, she could go throughthem and see if they were for any products thatshe usually purchased.“It helps me actually make my list beforeI go to the store,” Austelle said. “I’m less ofan impulse buyer if I look to see if I have acoupon for it.”Students also used the Internet as a resourceto find even more discounts at their favoritestores.“I use [coupons] everywhere,” Austelle said.“If I don’t have a coupon for something, I’llgo online and search. Almost always you canfind either a percentage off or a free shippingcoupon.”Hopkins agreed that online coupons anddiscounts were the way to go.“At the beginning of the year, I’ll go tomy favorite stores online and register for theircatalogs and get their discounts in the mail,”she said. “It’s a great way to see what the newstyles are for the season and get good deals atthe same time.”Whether participating in campus activities,going to unique and low-priced Searcy hot spotsor finding coupons and discounts, studentsharnessed their creative sides to find entertainmentwithout having to take a hammer to thepiggy bank.Cody Waits and Rachel Klemmerdaily life 35


experiencing the greatoutdoorsMost college students were on the constant hunt to get cash. Whether bybegging for it from their parents, getting a part-time job in the cafeteriaor scrounging through their suitemates’ couch cushions, they had to findsome way to pay for a midnight Wendy’s run or an upcoming date. But some studentsspent their weekends searching for a different kind of cache; these studentswent geocaching.Geocaching, or “caching” as the pro’s called it, was an adventurous hobby thattook its participants scavenging through the woods, picking up rocks or even examiningstreet lamps, all in the pursuit of a hidden cache. A cache was a small container,usually a film canister or lock box, that contained a logbook for hunters to sign oncethey had found it.While this might sound like an easy scavenger hunt, geocaching actually requiredthe use of a GPS unit with specific coordinates found online that led to the cachesite. Caches were hidden all over the world, each differing in level of difficulty tofind.“[Caching] has two category ratings based on a five point scale,” senior Jason Hillsaid. “One rating [is] for difficulty or how well the cache is hidden and the other forhow rough the terrain is to get through.”Some caches had to be dug for, some were magnetic, others hidden underwaterand some were even on the Harding University campus.“I have done the 7 point Harding cache tour,” senior Jon Langford said. “It tooka few months to find all of them because a few of the caches were disturbed by‘muggles’, or non-caching folk. To this day, when introducing someone to geocaching,I always show him or her a few of the Harding caches. Everyone is amazed thatthey walk by them every day.”The Harding Tour was comprised of seven different caches spread throughoutcampus. Whether a student, faculty member or visitor to the campus, the caches provideda small history of the university and the surrounding area where the cache washidden. For example, when discovering the cache hidden near the Harding HistoryHouse, a treasure hunter would find information about the iconic Harding gates thatwere actually part of Galloway College, the women’s college that Harding replaced.Although Harding’s and the surrounding Searcy area’s caches might have beenhard to get to, students said there were other sites more treacherous.“I spent a year in Iraq with the army between my junior and senior year at Harding,”Hill said. “Believe it or not, there are caches in Iraq in the middle of war.Because it was a war zone, you couldn’t give the correct coordinates because theenemy could use them to attack you, so the people [who set up the cache] wouldjust give general descriptions of what was around it, and you used those clues tofind the cache.”Other students also spoke about caches around the globe.“I wish I could have brought my GPS [unit] overseas because I heard there is oneat the Pyramids of Giza,” senior Billie Pieters said.While most of the time the caches held only a sign-in log, some also had prizes.“People hide these caches all over the world and put prizes in them for peoplewho find them,” Hill said. “Sometimes the prizes are really nice, like $100 for thefirst one to find it.”Although the thought of a cash-prize cache was appealing to some, the mainreason for caching was the thrill of the hunt and exploring new or overlooked areasthat went unnoticed to the untrained or GPS-less eye.“I am always excited about the caches that are hidden in the public that no onenotices,” Langford said. “There have been many caches that I have walked by on adaily basis that were unnoticeable until geocaching. For example, a fake sprinklerhead, a fake electrical outlet or even fake birds in a tree.”For anyone interested in caching, the requirements were only a working GPSunit, a passion for treasure hunting and access to the Internet.“Searcy is a great town to cache in,” Langford said. “There are over 200 cachesin Searcy alone. Check out www.geocaching.com for further information and coordinatesto start your own hunt.”Katie Ramirez36 student life

Sophomore JohnCannaday was the only male in a group with 13women on the spring 2008 trip.Cannaday signed up for the trip only a monthbefore the group left, so he was well aware ofwhat he was getting himself into and embracedthe experience with open arms. Surrounded bywomen for a whole semester was a hard thing forone man to handle. Senior JoAnna Kirk admittedthat sometimes the girls would get caught updoing “girly” activities and Cannaday would beout of the loop.“We always wanted to go shopping, and hewasn’t into that,” Kirk said.Cannady, being the odd one out, also causedseveral good laughs throughout the semester.“When we would go out, we would do aroommate check,” junior Allison Evins said. “Hedidn’t have a roommate, so we always had to be like‘John, John?’ and make sure he was there.”Living arrangements were also interestingfor Cannaday. The grouped stayed in an “aparthotel,”and while the girls would be surroundedby each other the whole time, Cannaday wouldbe on a different floor by himself surroundedby other guests.“I always ended up with the single room inthe hostels because I was male,” Cannaday said.“I didn’t complain much.”Before departing for the trip, Cannaday spenttime with his guy friends to soak up every last bitof male bonding he could.“I shared some of my concerns about beingwith all girls, and we conjectured about what mymarital status would be upon returning and thescale of things that could be a result of a semesterwithout men,” Cannaday said. “We didn’t go intothe woods, hunt deer or shoot guns, but they38 student life

I think this was his way of being manlythroughout the trip.”Cannaday looked forward to the trip the groupmade to visit the Harding University Florencestudents so that he could be with other guys.“The days coming up to [visiting the HUFgroup] were filled with eager anticipation ofseeing and talking with men again,” Cannadaysaid. “I was not let down when we arrived inFlorence.”The last night the group was in Paris, theFIAP, an international student center, hosted adinner for the group.“On the very last night, John got all the girlsa rose and gave them to us,” Evins said.Accompanying the rose, Cannady had somesweet words for the girls.“When he gave us the roses, he said, ‘Theysay every rose has its thorn. Well now every thornhas a rose,’ ” junior Sally Tucker said.Being the only male on this semester abroadwas also a learning experience for Cannaday. Hegot a better understanding of what it meant tobe a man.“It was like looking at the negative of a picture,”Cannaday said. “By looking at the background,you can get a decent picture of what is in theforeground.”While Cannaday did not learn the secret towomen, he did learn more about himself thanhe expected.“If you really want to know yourself well,”Cannady said, “spend a semester with 13 peoplewho are nothing like you.”Christie Cronk and Rachel Klemmerhuf/s 39

After breakfast, our group piledinto two buses, and we were given a tour of ourtemporary home: The Atacama Desert. Our tourguide Jorge pointed out different volcanoes, andwe stopped at a small village where we learnedabout their water filtration and distribution. Sincewater is scarce, they have to rotate where the waterflows every 18 days.After our tour of the surrounding areas, wewent through San Pedro, spotting a mountainbike store where bikes could be rented. A groupof us agreed on biking to Quevrada del Dibablo,which was eight kilometers away.We traveled all the way there, and after crossinga river, we were surrounded by massive mudmountains that were embedded with crystalstone layers. It was unlike anything I had everseen before. The trail meandered all around themountains, and it appeared that it was once thehome of a river judging by the water-washedlook of the mountainsides. We navigated throughmany tight squeezes and under low-hanging caves,where at times we had to duck our heads to keepfrom crashing!Upon returning from our extreme mountainbiking experience, we ate at a unique all-naturalrestaurant, which I was very excited about. Unfortunately,my body had other plans. Due to thestrenuous mountain biking desert safari, my bodywas overworked and dehydrated, which made mevery sick, and I headed to bed by 8 p.m. All in all,however, I had a great day.I just described one great day in Chile, but evenit does not hold a candle to all of the amazing thingsto see and do while there.

crossing toJordanStudents who attended Harding University inGreece (HUG) in the spring of 2008 experiencedsomething no previous group was able to.Due to an extended stay in Israel, the group gotthe opportunity to make a journey to the countryof Jordan. The directors of HUG, Jerry andDiane Myhan, promised the students when theyfirst arrived in Greece that there would be somekind of surprise for them when they got to Israel.Many students thought the surprise could havebeen Osman, the tour guide they had in Egypt,but the trip to Jordan was unexpected for all. Thegroup had to sacrifice some activities that normalHUG groups participated in, including staying thenight in a Bedouin camp, but they said sights theyexperienced in Jordan made it well worth it.The group traveled to the capital city of Jordan,Amman, and from there trekked across the countryto Petra. Many students were excited to see thisincredible sight. Petra, meaning “rock,” was oncea wealthy city built into a sandstone canyon.“For me, it was one of the most impressionableplaces we visited in the entire four months,”junior Benjamin Skinness said. “Around everycorner beheld something more awing than whatwe saw before.”Junior Bethany Holder said that the only wayshe knew how to describe it was to compare it tothe Grand Canyon.“It’s amazing just how naturally beautiful itis,” she said.The treasury, the biggest site in Petra, was carvedinto the canyon and voted into the New SevenWonders of the World in 2007.

ThePetra Treasury was featured in the movie“Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.”Noah DarnellIn addition to the treasury’s historical andcultural significance, it also held entertainmentvalue. Many movies and books referenced thesite at Petra, but none more famous than thethird installment of the Indiana Jones series.Several students jumped at the chance to viewin person the sight they had only before seenon film.“I was very excited about this opportunity,considering I am a huge Indiana Jones fan andhave seen all of [the movies],” junior MelissaRitchie said. “It was amazing to get to step footin a foreign country where they actually didfilming and to see such a cool place.”During their time in Petra, students alsoencountered the Bedouin vendors that cameinto the city to do business during the day. Somecame away with souvenirs of their special tripto the Jordan.“I actually broke down and spent about$150 on a Bedouin-made knife,” Skinness said.“I had no buyer’s remorse.”Among other places, the group was alsoable to go see Mount Nebo, a site famous forits Biblical history. It was at Nebo that Mosesviewed the Promised Land that he would neverbe able to enter.“It’s awesome visiting places that you canopen up your Bible and read about,” juniorTommy Stickel said.While the HUG group was unsure of whatto expect going into the surprise three-day tripto Jordan, they came away appreciative of theopportunity they had to go.“Before [we went], I was more excited toadd another country to the checklist of placesI had been,” Skinness said. “In retrospect, Iwould be thrilled to attend Harding Universityin Jordan.”Cody Waits and Emily Hauptlihug 43


adkarmaSpending a semester overseas through Harding’sinternational programs offered many opportunitiesfor students to expand their horizons and learnabout different cultures.In the fall of 2008, several students at Harding Universityin Australia (HUA) spent their semester differently,scheming new ways to agitate their schoolmates.Senior Russell Woods admitted that he was the culpritto many pranks attempted throughout the semester.“Pranks happen after the professors attempt to craman entire semester of work into one month,” Woodssaid. “[Pulling pranks] is just a way of releasing someof that stress and makes you forget about everythingfor a minute.”But sometimes, pranks resulted in catastrophe.One night in Surfer’s Paradise, their home throughoutthe semester, two students were up to no good.“Woody told me to distract the girls while he raninto their room and grabbed their pillows,” sophomoreJeremy Cohen said. “He set them out in the hall andthen came back to the room the group was in.”After dropping off the stash of pillows, they visitedanother boys’ room to boast about their adventureonly to become suspicious moments later of the girls44 student life

Only 15 minutes had elapsed and their grandplan had unraveled.With no other option, the two headed back tothe girls’ room to see if they had taken their pillowsback. Still unaware that any of their belongings weremissing, the girls sensed that Woods and Cohenwere up to no good and barricaded their own door.But Cohen knew he could get through.“I had an idea that was so ingenious; it couldnever fail,” he said.Cohen lunged through the girls’ barricadebut discovered that the pillows were not there.Now stuck in the room, Cohen attempted ahasty escape.“Jeremy took off running around the apartmentand ran directly into the door frame at full speedthen face planted on the floor,” Woods said.At first, no one was aware of the harm thathad been done from the fall. After Cohen rolledover, he noticed his big toe was facing a differentdirection than it should.“When I flipped over to check my toe, I noticedthat it was crooked,” he said. “When I askedeveryone if they thought my toe was crooked,they all said, ‘yes, it’s crooked.’ Then I was limpingaround repeating ‘I broke my toe.’ After that, I gotlightheaded and lay down on the floor.”One screw and two pins later, he was unableto say whether or not the adventure was worthtoe surgery.“I wasn’t yet sure how much it was going tokeep me from doing all of the things that I wantedto do while I was there,” Cohen said.Woods, on the other hand, had no doubt itwas worth it.“I would do it again if I had the chance,” he said.“Their reaction was everything that we expected— whining, crying, begging, etc. And then I wasinformed to watch my back.”Although the pain lasted longer than theactual prank, the two realized the brevity of thesituation.“All of that started after stealing just a fewpillows,” Woods said.Hannah WareFeeding a kangaroo, sophomore RebeccaJones tries to keep the animal under controlSept. 13, while spending time in the CurrumbinWildlife Sanctuary.

Students spentseveral days in Rome visiting historical sites.Nick MichaelStudents who attended Harding UniversityFlorence (HUF) in the summer of 2008returned full of stories and fond memoriesof their time overseas. For a certain group ofHUFers, their memories included a humorousencounter with a man named Hans.Juniors Shannon Parker, Kellie DeAtley, JoelBlake and Jessica Stroud wanted to take a daytrip to Normandy, which was only three trainrides from where they were staying in Paris.Of particular interest to the group were thefamous beaches from World War II, includingthe ones from D-day. However, they had heardit was hard to get around without their own carbecause of the beaches being spread out. Thegroup decided to figure out their agenda oncethey arrived.After getting off the train in Normandy,the four students were surprised at what theyran in to.“As we stepped off the train, we ran into aman wearing a purple Minnesota Vikings hat,a dirty white England T-shirt, shorts held upby a weightlifter belt and sandals with socks,”Blake said.This man, who appeared to be in his late 60s,ran up to Blake and asked if they were interestedin seeing the Normandy beaches. He then pulledout a map and offered the group a full day tourin his “limo” for half price. While doing his salespitch, the man claimed he had references andquickly pulled out a piece of paper to prove it.Blake looked at the reference page, which simplysaid “Hans is the man.” Hans pointed to himselfand said, “I’m Hans – lets go.”After bargaining Hans down from 40 eurosto 30 euros, the group agreed to take a tour withHans in his “limo.” Hans first had to grab his bikebut instructed the group to meet him at a certaincafé with a red awning. As the group searchedfor the mysterious red awning café, they heardHans calling out from a beat-up car that it wastime to go. After realizing this was the “limo”Hans was referring too, they got in the car andsaw a broken speedometer and a female figurineon the dashboard.While driving around and visiting the beaches,Hans entertained the group with stories.“I sat in the front, and the three girls sat in theback, laughing because of his ridiculous storiesand his accent,” Blake said. “He yelled most of46 student life


a day withhansthe time because he was hard of hearing. Sowhenever a girl would ask him a question fromthe back seat, he would yell ‘WHAT?’ and thenask me what they said.”At one point, Hans even yelled out to a mancrossing the street to get a haircut.Hans drove the group to the beaches, droppedthem off and told them to meet back at a designatedplace after half an hour.“When we would come back, he would besleeping under a tree with his shirt off,” Blake said.“A few times, we even had to wake him up.”When the group stopped to eat, they continuedtalking and began asking Hans questions.He ignored them, finished his mouthful andsaid, “One thing I always tell my tourists is thatI never talk while eating.” They then finishedout the remainder of their lunch without oneword from Hans.When the group got back to Paris, they immediatelytold another group of HUFers, juniorsMary-Kyle Walker, Kurt Adams and Austin Grieb,to try to find Hans the following day. WhenWalker, Adams and Grieb got to Normandy,they did not find Hans at first and were disappointed,but when crossing a street, they saw aman they thought could be Hans. Adams yelledout his name, and Hans came running towardsthem and offered them the same tour.“We had the most fun with Hans than anyother time we had in Paris,” Walker said. “Hewas a pretty sketchy man but was a great tourguide who knew a lot of stuff.”Christie Cronkhuf 47

According to areport by Zambia Orphans of AIDS, about 19percent of children under age 18, or 1.1 million,are orphans, most of them because of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.Namwianga Mission in Kalomo, Zambia, providescare for such orphans through sponsorship-fundedorphanages: Haven 1 for newborns and infants andHaven 2 for toddlers. Harding students participatingin Harding University in Zambia (HIZ) had theopportunity to work in these orphanages.The students, after finishing morning classes,usually walked a dusty cattle path to the havensand returned before sunset. One night, however,three girls braved the nocturnal shift to experiencea whole new side of orphan supervision.While most students finished homework orjournaled about a day in Africa, sophomores CassieDavidson, Kayla Maynard and Macye Dean arrivedat Haven 1, quite unsure of their responsibilities. Itdid not help that it was an especially dark night withno electricity, a frequent event at Namwianga. Evenso, the “aunties,” as the paid orphanage workers arecalled, did not miss a single dirty diaper.“I asked myself, why am I here?” Dean said.“I felt pretty helpless in the dark due to all of thefussy babies.”When the power came back on around 11 p.m.,the students felt relieved. Now they could actuallysee where they were working. The haven consistedof four baby rooms, each containing an average of10 cribs and nameplates holding medical recordsand formula bottles for the day, depending on howmany orphans the haven had at the time.Dean worked with an auntie named Rejoice, whoalso attended school by sleeping from the morninguntil class began at 1 p.m. This could have justifieda sluggish shift, yet Dean said Rejoice displayed fargreater competence with the tasks than herself.“Mainly, I dressed the babies because the firstone I bathed, I definitely got soap in his eyes, andI was still slower than Rejoice,” Dean said. “Finally,she just said, ‘I will bathe, you will dress.’ ”Two or three times during the night, the auntieschanged all the diapers. These diapers, however,48 student life


were not up to par with Pampers.“It’s a nappy cloth and safety pin,” Davidson said.“You have to wear rubber gloves, and the bigger babiestend to squirm, making it difficult not to pin them onaccident.”Although the students did feel somewhat inadequate,they ultimately understood their place at thehaven when the aunties were able to relax by watchingtelevision. Unlike their previous afternoon visits, theygained insight into the most tiring shift on an alreadyhectic and emotionally draining job.“The aunties were actually surprised at how wewere able to help,” Maynard said. “They were genuinelyappreciative.”Spending the night formula feeding, bathing anddiaper changing was not typical for three Hardingsophomores. Nevertheless, arriving back at their housejust in time for 6:30 a.m. classes did not generate onecomplaint; they said it was worth it to be a mom to theorphans for a night.“We were exhausted and also content at sunrise,”Maynard said.Lucas Nossamanone night inafricahiz 49


Through the Years"My mom was a big influence on mydecision to come to Harding and I'mreally glad I chose to come here. Ilove the people." oUrcr l1re Ki11m1Noah Darnell"n's boo1 a bIessrg to attend the sarreschool that my mother, two auntsand cousins attended." 8q::t0n0reJessica ~ Noah Oarnell52 people~Dorsey family continues legacy at HardingEvery student has a story of why he or she made thedecision to attend Harding. Maybe it was because ofa particular department specific to the interest of thestuaent, or maybe it was because the atmosphere of thecampus and student life was appealing. But sophomoreand third ge neration Harding student Amanda Dorsey'sdecision behind choosing Harding haa a history on whichit was hugely based.The Dorsey story actually began in the fifties, whenAmanda's grandfather, Pac Dorsey from Terrell, Texas, attendedHarding. Outing this time, Harding University wasstill under the name of Harding College. and tuition wasabout $1,700 a year."My grandpa had to actually hitchhike to and from schoolwhen he had to go home," Amanda said.To get to Hardi ng from Terrell, it took him about ninehours plus walking time.In 1953, Pat \vas drafted into the war and was unable tofinish out his senior year. He intended to major in chemistry,and though he did not graduate from Harding with a degree.he went back to school part time at Lamar University in Texasand got his degree, which qualified him to work at a chemicalplant. Twenty-four years later, both his son and furoredaughter-in-law followed in his footsteps.Spring Sing of 1980 was an important year for Amanda'sparents, Ken and Pam Dorsey. Both being in clubs, Pam inGATA and Ken in Alpha Tau, it was during their junior yearthat the two met during a Spring Sing practice. The day aftergraduation. they were married. Pam, along with her brotherand two sisters transferred to Harding in 1978 when theirfather took a job as coach of the swim team. Ken said heloved Harding because he liked having a group of dosefriends with similar values."h was a really good change, going from a public schoo!to a private school where doing the right thing is the normalthing to do," Ken said.He also loved getting the chance to study the Bible everyday and loved how the professors truly cared about thestudents' education.''] really wanted Amanda to have the chance to experiencethose same things," he said.Twenty-six years later, Pam and Ken's daughter Amandacame to Harding."It was either Harding or stay at home and go to acommunity college," Amanda said. "1 was a little worried atfirst about coming here because I didn't really know manypeople."She assumed college would be much like high school, whereshe attended a private school, and admitted to not expectingthe environment to be as fun as it proved to be."J didn't e.xpect to make so many best friends so quickly," shesaid. "It's just so much better than 1 thought it would be."When people asked Amanda why she came to Harding,she proudly told chern, "It was a family thing."As a whole, Amanda said she was satisfied with her decisionto attend school at Harding."h's kind of cool to know that so many of my familymembers have walked the same path that I am now, literally,"she said.Joseph Dickerson and Hannah Beall

SpiritBleeding colors besides black and goldSchool spirit technically referred to emotional support forone's own institute of education. However, on any givenfall Saturday afternoon, a brge portion of Harding studentscould be found exercising that spirit for other institutions besidesHarding by yelling and screaming at a TV or radio tunedin to their favorite schools' football games. It quickly becameevident that for these individuals, school spirit embodied yearsof family tradition, rivalries, memories and even bloodshed thatcould not be equaled by any other university.\'\Then senior Zach Garner was not satisfied watching theTennessee Volunteers on Tv, he made the eight-hour trip hometo Knoxville to see to a game."T attended there for three years," Garner said. "People are[either] on cloud nine or suicidal depending on if we win orlose. It's an awesome atmosphere."While Garner said fights over the team \vere mostly limitedto verbal arguments between him and his dad, for odlers it wasmore. Senior Donny Stephens said the passion for his preferredteam came to actual blows.''\X1hen I was in elementary school, we used to have Auburnversus Alabama football games at recess," Stephens said. ''Thisone kid thought he had a touchdown when he most definitelydidn't, so we just had it Out right then and there."Stephens said his love for Alabama came from a lot ofmemories and family tradition. He recalled one of his fondestmemories when his family got in the car and drove allaround the neighborhood singing the Alabama fight songafter a big win.Stephens received understanding for his passion for Alabamafootball from his girlfriend, senior Megan Reese."[For one game] 1 made him Alabama 'N. cookies," Reesesaid. "I realize it's a big part of his life. ] don't get emotionallyinvolved in sports, but J try to support him. I'm glad he likesit; it's a good American thing to do."Senior Carson Copeland said he could relate to family traditionwhen it came to the Arkansas Razorbacks. Copeland saidhe believed there reaUy was not much choice when it came towhat school he would cheer for growing up."Ever since 1 was a kid, it was just something we did,"Copeland said. ''I t was just me and dad sitting in front of theTV watching the Razorbacks."Copeland said he loved everything about I-larding and wasglad he came here, but when it came to sports, he thoughtit was impossible for Harding to compete with the athleticatmosphere of other schools.After attending Texas A&M for a year before transferringto Harding, freshman Chrystine Barbre never lost her spiritfor dlat school."Being at [texas A&:M], it's really hard not to be a fan,"Barbre said. "My favorite part of the games was the yells andcheers of the crowd. A&M is just so big; [it feels like] everyoneis playing the game when the crowd participates."Mat Brown, a senior and Auburn fan, said he loved hisschool because he grew up in Huntsville, Ala. He said he hadto choose bet\veen Alabama and Auburn, but finally decided onAuburn and has been pulling for them ever since. He thoughtthe reason why some Harding srudems were not as crazy aboutthe Harding Bisons as other schools was simple."When you grow up rooting for a school for whateverreason, you're going to keep doing it, no matter where you goto college," Brown said. "That's just the way it is."ZachWe'ch"[My roommate] and I are both soi~ opposite teams, we woundup watching the game in differentrooms."

A Rockin'Weavers take center stage on TLC's "Rock the Reception"If wedding days were not stressful enough, on Saturday, July 12,2008, thingsbecame even more stressful when microphones, cameras and a productioncrew were added into the mix. T hose were only a few uniclue items that 2008graduate Addison Weaver and senior Vicky Weaver had to hide from theirwedding party, family and guests on their wedding day.Last May, the couple was watching television and saw a new show on TLCcalled "Rock the Reception." Following the pilot episode, which was based oncouples getting married and ending with an unusual "first dance," a commercialadvertising interest in being on the show aired and gave informacion about howto apply on TLC's Web site.''\YJe applied, not really with any serious hopes, but the casting directorsliked us, gave us a call, and before we knew it, they invited us to be on '"Rockthe Reception,' " Addison said.The bride and groom knew they wanted to have a fun first.dance together."We always wanted to really surprise our guests and get things started witha 'bang,' " Vicky said. "We didn't know how to go about doing that, but thispresented a perfect opportunity for doing JUSt that!"Although the Weavers did not get paid to be on the show, it offered themthe opportunity to have an original and memotable firSt dance, which was allthe incentive they needed.The producers arrived in San Antonio eight days early to begin filming.The process began with an all-day interview on the Sunday before their weddingday.''Then, for the rest of the week, they followed us around town filming usas we made final preparations for the wedding," Addison said.Vicky said that the most surprising thing about the whole process was how"wired" they were. They had to wear microphones during all the weddingactivities, for all of the dance practices and throughout the actual dance itself.On the actual day of the wedding, the bride wore twO separate."1 felt like a CIA agent," she said.If three-hour dance practices were not hard enough, they got even harderwhen trying to keep microphones intact and memorizing a dance for nationaltelevision. TLC provided a professional choreographer, Chantel Robson, whocreated the dance just for them to the tune of "Rock 'N' Roll All Nite" bj'KISS. Robson put the couple and their siblings through three extensive, three·hour practices and three separate rehea~sals for final preparations for the bigevent."Neither I nor Addison had an)' dance experience prior to our reception,"Vicky said, " but learning together only made it that much more fun."Addison's fWO sisters, junior Les~e Weaver and Megan Weaver, were includedin the secret, as well as Vicky's brother, freshman Cordell Rech."They went to all of the rehearsals with us and did the actuaJ dance withus at the teception," Addison said.Vicky said that it was really great to get to do the dance with their siblingsand share that special part of their wedding with them.Throughout the entire process, watching the reactions from the weddingparty was their favorite memory."\Ve had to keep the dance a secret from everyone, including the membersin our wedding party, so they were extremely shocked whenever we began thedance," the Weavers said. ''The production crew kept themselves 'hidden' fromthe rest of our guests by pretending to be the videographers at our wedding.Several of our guests thought that we had spent an outrageous amount ofmoney on recording our wedding, but they finally understood the need for allthe cameras after our dance!"Addison and Vid.-y Weavet succeeded in surprising their guests and makingtheirwedding more special by rock en' rollin all night at their rockin' reception.Allison WeaverFriends and family of the Weaver's gam togelta'" towaten tte premere of 'fkck tte Rocepto1' Sept 201hs was SlPIXSEd to te tte fist lITe that Ita' e;:jro::l:lwas ar€d 00 lVJ:ut it was cJeIa:ye::j at Ire ast minute.Nick MichaelAddison and Vicki Weaver IABtdi the D\ID ct th:J" n..ce;:jro::l:l Sept 29" ther Meg rOO'Tl The DVD was agreat way to remember the events of tl"eir we::ldingreceptO'"l.

Now imagine not having one andnever being able to knO\,v if people have already arrived,if the time was changed for the meeting or if there wasan emergency .. That was dle life of junior Adam Smith who went fromclass to class without receiving a text message, withoutmissing a call from his mom and without that annoyingvibration coming from his bag. ."My parents got a very basic cell phone plan about 10years ago so that my brother and J could call them when theywere working, and we just kept that plan the whole time,"Smith said. 'We were all usually around phones anyways. 1 hadthought about getting one when I came to school, but it justseemed more expensive than it was worth at the time."However, what about basic communication? With theworld being so communication driven, how could anyonemanage to get anything done \\~thout a cell phone?"It can be challenging to stay up to date on what thecurrent plans are with my friends or to really just talk toanybody dlat I know," Smith said.So in a culture that tends to be deadline and meetingoriented, how did a guy without any constant source ofcommunication get around?''The phone in the room on the landline made things alittle easier, but that was assuming that J was in the room,"Smith said. "It put a little more o f the burden of planningon my friends and made them have to put a little more effortinto the relationship since they would have to come find meand wait for me."Smith, however, never seemed too put off by aU of theextra work that he and his friends had to put forth in orderto hang out or just catch up with one another."A lot of it was just [a matter ofj planning ahead oftime, and often times J would just be with a friend that didhave a phone, so 1 could find out what was going on thatway," Smith said.T here was of course the occasional inconvenience ofmissing a friend or a group meeting because of not beingable to reach him."There were a few boring afternoons in there [when rcouldn't meet up with friends]," Smith said.In spite of these inconveniences, Smith was not one ofthose people who depended on the ability to contact his momor anyone else while on the road. Smith never worried aboutrunning into problems on a drive home or finding himself·without a means to dial roadside assistance."1 was so used to just not having a cell phone that itwasn't a big deal," Smith said concerning his isolated tripshome. ''Plus I am a fairly large guy, so T didn't have to worryabout getting in trouble tOO much."Nevertheless, Smith recogrllzed that there could be someadvantages to cell phones."There were a few times I could tell that [having aphone] would be quite helpful to my social life at college,"Smith said.T his past summer, Smith broke down and gOt a cellphone.

RLC and student grow up in dorms"It'd be really fun to grow up in thedorms. When people who are olderthan you give you attention, it's agreat I"';ing." 8En::r i"ooth9r N3M::alyNoahOamell"It would be so neat growing uparound college kids. You'd alwayshave tons of people to play VoJith you. nFrEffimlI-ffi"ffl Stsv.at Noah ilimeIlWhile most incomingsrudents spem the fustweeks ofschool acclimating dlemselves to dle dorm lifestyle,getting used to their loud neighbors, the beige wallsand the nighdy room checks, for others it was just home.Freshman Jacob Martin was one who was used to thedorm life, having grown up in the women's dorm Pattie Cobbwhere his modler,Joetta, was a dorm mom. Martin lived inthe women's dorm for 11 years before beginning his collegecareer at Harding.AJrhough li\rlng in a dorm mighr have seemed for somelike an opportunity to stay up late and have fun with the crazydorm antics, Martin said there were some things he felt hemissed out on during his childhood.'1 never grew up in a neighborhood with other families andkids, but 1 was still able to have friends over often," he said."High school was never a problem because I was able to driveto do dUngs with people."AJrhough his mom \VtIS also a mother 10 over 130 girls, Martinsaid he never felt like he had to share her all of the time.Along with spending time with his mom, Martin said hespent time widl the girls in the dorm, although not until hewas older, talking mostly when he was younger to the residentassistants in the dorm. As he grew older though, Marcin saidhe began (0 appreciate me friendships he made with the otherdorm residents.''1 t may sound strange, but I've always viewed the girls livingin the dorm as my 130 sisters," he said.As time approached for Martin ro begin looking ar collegesto attend, he said he looked elsewhere but then chose to stayat Harding where he already felt at home."1 received enough scholarships to pay my way throughcollege [at Harding], and because this is where home is, homenOt just meaning my family, bU[ also my Christian brothers andsisters that 1 know who attend, reach or work here," he said.Martin said the biggest adjustmem about moving from tllewomen's dorm to Armstrong Dorm was the noise level.Never having left the men's dorms was Debra Nesbitt, whogrew up in Gradu.1te Hall and Allen Dorm as a child before mov~ing on to be a Residence Life Coordinator in Keller Hall.'1 pursued the donn because we were wanting to moveback to Searg( Nesbitt said of becoming a dorm mom. '''Tome, the dorm was a natural dloice for a job for my family. Wefelt like Goo had opened a door for us to get back to Searcy. 1never really thought aoour doing any orher job while my kidsare at home; it is perfect for raising a familr"Nesbitt said she moved out of rhe men's dorm duringher freshman year at Harding when she stayed in CathcartDorm and then her entire sophomore year before movingback to Allen. Nesbitt said she missed the dorm atmosphererhar she was familiar with and that it helped her save moneyby living at home.Nesbitt said her favorite times living in the dorms wereduring the summer and holiday breaks when the rooms \vereempty and she and her brothers were free to play ragor hideand-seekthrough the halls. Raising her own dUldren in Keller,Nesbitt said she was able to relive many of the memories ofher own chilqb.ood.During the school year thougl\ Nesbitt said she enjoyed talkingto the students as they came in and out of the dorm."1 thought every guy walking through the quad wasthere to play with me," she said. "1 think I probably drovethem nuts."Besides the friends and memories she made, Nesbitt saidthere were other mctors she loved aoour living in the dormsthat she took with her.''1 also developed a love of Harding," she said. ''Workingwith Christians in a Christian environment is worth any'sacrifices' made. ] was always involved in missions at Hardingand strongly believe in going into all the world, bur 1 also knowthere is a lot to do right here in Searcy. I f my family can reachone srudent, then my job is worth it."For both i'vlartin and Nesbitt, and for many ocher srudentswho were far from their hometowns and families, the dormsbecame their true home.'"Technically, I could have lived in Pattie Cobb this year,but I chose to move into the dorm to begin to learn howto live away from home, even though home is only threem.inutes awa);" ~1artin said.

ServeStudents' service puts lives on IfneJumorsKoby Feather and Russ Gray faced some responsibilitiesthat the average college student did not have toworry about. \Vhile most students' anxieties were turningin assignments or papers on time or s'luec7ing in enough studytime right before a big rest, Feather and Gray's job as volunteerftre6ghterscaused them to be on call 24/7, ready to drop whateverthey were doing at a moments notice when needed.Feather, part of a three-generation firefighcing family withhis father and grandfather, had been a volunteer firefigtucr forover seven years. Both Feather's father and grandfarher were onthe unit he joined. He started going with his father seven yearsago and then officially became a member twO years latct.Gray had been a firefighter for over three years. Graystarted Out with the Progress Fire Department in Harrisburg,Pennsylvania. He volunteered there until he moved and cameto Harding.''My interest in firefighting sooted in my senior year of highschool when 1 felt a calling and desire to do more with my lifeand serve my community tI,e best I could," Gray said.After coming to Harding, both Feather and Gray hecanlevolwueers at Southeast \V'hite County Fire and Rescue Department(SEWCO) in Griffithville, Arkansas. Since the SEWCOdepartment was soldy volunteer run, they were both on call allthe time. \X1hile not having fires to fight would generally be agood thing, Gray said the waiting in between calls could be atough part of the job."[MyJ least favorite part of the job is the waits for calls, andthe down time that comes with those wairs," he said.But for Feather and Gray, the benefits of the job greatlyovershadowed any downsides that came with it."'F!refighcing is a hard but I.'e\vardingjob," Feather said. ''You'reable to do something good for others. Most of the Christianfirefighters I know see firefighting as a way to imitate Christ. Weare sacrificing our well-being to help save others."Gray acknowledged that there was a need for this kind ofservice despite the risk that it entailed."1 r's a job that is known for its danger. and someone needsto go out and do it because tIlere are not a lot of people tl,atwant to go do it," Gray said. "1 t's nice to know that people outthere appreciate what we do as volunteer firefighters."One of the biggest things that continued to inspire bothFeather and Gray was the bond of brotherhood with thosewhom they served a1ongsklc. Though Feadler initially became afirefighter because of his father and grandfather, he also foundreasons of his own."T he excitement and d,e bonds you make with the adlermembers is one of the reasons I stayed," he said.Closely associated with the excitement from firefighting wasthe element of danger. Feather recalled some particularly dangerousinstances he experienced during responses to calls."\'{Ie were fighting a house fire and the house was gonewhen we arrived, so our main job was to keep it from spreading,"Feather said. "\'{!e thought we had the fire contained untilit breached and headed for a large propane tank. A couple ofus got hoses and kept the fire at bay till it died down . I f the tankhad exploded while we were that dose, we would ha\'c died orbeen snerdy injured."An incident Feather remembered also involved a housefire."[My dad and 1] were on the roof of the house trying cocut holes to let the smoke oue so the men inside could see bettcr,"he said. "\ X1hile we were up there, the fire inside the houseshi fted and burned some the supportS that wc were standingon. We fdt the roof move, and we were able to gCt off quicklybefore we were hurt."Both Feather and Gray said they planned to continue theirservice as fircfighters while also juggling the li fe of a student.Though their job had not yet interrupted any class time or sleep.it always remained a possibility.'We haven't had to run any calls during the day or in themiddle of the night since I joined [SEWCO ]," Gray said. ''Butif dlere were to be a call at any of those times, I would be readyto respond as quickJy as I could."Joseph Dickerson and Emily Hauptli"While [being a firefighter] is a bigresponsibility. it carries little effect onyour life until you're called. Then itis no longer about school but aboutpeople." Freohrnan Zachary LooJonN08h Darnell"I think it's awesome that Koby is afi16fghter; I'm very proud of him. "J.raPJIysoo Gedden.

Scripturally Sound"Out here in this cabin it's kind of anescape or retreat where we can getaway from all of our worries." SenaClay Wilams. Nick MichaelStudents find weekly fellowshipWI really enjoy being out at the dockbecause it's really nice to be able toadmire God's work while we learnabout Him and challenge ourselvesto be better servants. ~ FrestY'l'a'I BrettDiIon. Noah DarnellThe spiritual atmosphere of Harding \vas an appealingreason for many students who decided to attend. Whilemany chose to attend a morc traditional church setting onSundays, the hardest paft for many students was finding whichWednesday night Bible study provided a good fit for them.The dock cleva and dlC log cabin cleva were two Wednesdaynight Bible studies that were relatively new this past year. Thedock clevo was held in a gazebo that overlooked the River OaksGolf Course.Sophomores Devin Stewart and Jordan PO\vell and secondyear freshman Joshua Wolf started dus devotional in the 2007·2008 school year. After attending other devos and not findingthe right fit, they decided to begin their owo. The armosphereof this devotional was designed to be small and very open.Freshman Kristin Evans felt that this was the devotional forher. She feh like she belonged and made a lot of new friends.Stuart typically Jed the devotionals and encouraged everyoneto open up with each Other and talk about different topics. Therelaxed st}ie created a truSting em~ronment Everyone shared commentsand stories instead of having ooc particular speaker.''! t seems like the devotional really connects people and helpsus to realize that we are not dealing \vith life all by ourselves,"Evans said. "This cleva really helps me connect \vith people 1would have never met otherwise."The log cabin cleva was associated \virh the Chi Sigma Alphasocial club. It was held in an old member's parents' log cabin. Themajority of people who attended \vere members of Chi SigmaAlpha, but it was nOt lirnited to club members. T\vo freshmenthat got very involved \vith the deva over the past ycar wereMichael Starks and Benjamin Johnson.''\Xlhen I went to the devo for the first time, I was kind ofskeptical," Johnson said. ''l did not know many people, butwhen 1 arrived, 1 felt like 1 was part of the group. They are allreally good guys and girls."TIlls Bible study helped freshmen connect \vith the membersof Chi Sigma Alpha as well as other H arding students."I met a few new people at dlis deva, and everyone there reallygave me the feeling that 1 was welcomed, not just\vithin the groupand the Chi Sig membe~ but to Harding as a whole," Smrks said.'They really show Christ in what they do at the log cabin."Johnson agreed that despite the group's diversity, they con·tinued to keep Christ at the center."1 ('S a mixture of people from aU sorts of backgroundscoming together that agree on one thing: Jesus Christ is ourSavior," he said.The log cabin devo was more personal and encouragedopenness among the group as they reJa.xed and praised God inthe living room of dle cabin."The biggest affect that the [devol had on me was whenwe split runo] prayer groups," Starks said. ''It really showed methat the people in the group were very caring and watchful forone another."Both the dock and log cabin devos created a more intimatesetting through the small group size and provided a mid·weekencouragement for irs members."AhnOSt every \veek we talk about how we can improve ourspiritual lives," Evans said. ''\'\Ie pray for each other and findpeople to remind us to read our bibles., so having that account·ability has helped me grow a lot."Bethany Loftis104 people~

HelpingStudents engage in disaster reliefUBeing part of a team of collegestudents that decided to serve ratherthan be served was a blessing thatI was able to witness." FreshmanJames RLCker Noah DarnellWhen the US. was hicon September 13, 2008, by itsthird largest hurricane, Ike, the Harding studentbody realized they needed to hetp. With over $27billion in damages and over 82 deaths, H urricane Ike ravagedthe coastline, costing many families their homes and ways oflife. Several weeks after the initial damage, over 20 studentsleft for their fall break co serve the people in southern Texaswho were hit the worst by the hurricane and in need ofclean up help.The group worked in conjunction with several otherministry groups from around the Lubbock, Texas, area toclean up the damage, which was more shocking than manystudents thought it would be."] was expecting there to be only a little damage left thatrequired lots of manpower," junior Justin Barrios said. "Butwhen we gOt there, it looked like the hurricane [had] comethrough only three days before."The group put their efforts into picking up branches, clearingdebris, tearing out drywall, mucking out houses, makingminor repairs and praying with the owners of each house.When seeing all the damage that was done, there wereseveral reactions throughout the group."1 didn't expect the graffiti everywhere sa}~ng things like'owner will shoot looters'," senior Alex Cantrell said. ''Thingscan be replaced, but seeing these people's emotions sprayedacross dilapidated buildings was heart-wrenching."Some of the group members were surprised at how realthe situation became once they saw the damaged homesup close.''You don't understand what is reaUy being lost until youare there looking at it aU with your own eyes and seeing whatthese people have lost," freshman Erin Stone said.Although it had been several weeks since Ike hit, dle groupsaid there was still a lot of work to be done. There still remainedcleaning to finish, houses to fix and rebuild and support togive those who lost either loved ones or their homes in thehurricane. Stone said that just the group being there to cleanup helped these individuals who had so little.Although the cleanup work was hard on the students,even harder was the realization that people's entire lives werenow in trash heaps.''1 ('s never easy to throw someone's [belongings) out OntOa sidewalk so that a dump truck can haul it away," sophomoreJonathan Moury said. "lc just reminded me over and overagain that this world is truly not my home."Ultimately, the group hoped their fall break mission gavehope to the hurricane victims."I hope we left them with a sense of security and hope."Stone said. " Hope for the future and for a life after theflood and securi ty so that they would know that Jesus isalways there to hold them when the water starts to pour inaU around dlem. And that no matter what He will be thereto see them through."Christie Cronk and Katie Ramirez"To be at a point in our lives wherewe can afford to go serve those whoare in need is a blessing, and it wasa great opportunity for God to blessthem through us."

He also had roles inseveral different club acts. In 2006, Lundin returned to H ardingfor graduate school.''1 was excited because this way I could try out for ensembleagain," he said. "I definitely like the performing aspect. I love tobe on stage and have fun."Besides the performing aspect of Spring Sing, Lundin alsoloved returning to work with the people."Coming back to work with the hosts and hostesses andensemble, I have formed some gocx:! relationships and great fuendships,"he said. ''111at's how I met some of my best friends."One such person was Harding graduate Sean Tappe, whowas part of the ensemble in 2002 and 2003 'with Lundin. Lundinwas also in his wedding, and the tWO were able to keep in touchbecause Tappe lived in Searcy after graduating."\''(Ie didn't know each other before ensemble, but we metthere and became best friends," Tappe said. "\'V'e went on to doa lot more than Spring Sing and the [Homecoming] musical.We roomed together for a while after that [and] really lived thecollege experience together."When he was not devoting his time to Spring Sing, Lundinworked as a senior COSt accountant for Blue Cross and BlueShield in IJttle Rock."I spend all day at work exercising dle left side of my brain,and then I get to come to Spring Sing practice and exercise thecreative, or right, side of my brain," Lundin said.In addition to Spring Sing, Lundin did other choreographywork. He worked with Bryant High School's show choir, theCentral Arkansas Christian drama departrnent and RiverviewHigh School cheerleaders. He also attended Zumba, an aerobicdance class at the Searcy A thletic Club, on a regular basis.Lundin also participated in and helped choreograph a fewHarding H omecoming musicals, including 'Joseph and theTechnicolor Dream Coat," "Fiddler on the Roof" and ''Wizardof Oz," and in the fall of 2008, he was a co-choreographer for"Oklahoma!" .From being an accountant 'where he wore a suit to comingto Spring Sing practice where he wore a sequined costume,Lundin dedicated himself to the many different facets of hislife and proved to be an asset to the a~tivities in which he wasinvolved.Christie Cronk"Joshua shares OUf passion for excellence.His talent as a performer and achoreographer is a welcome additionto the Spring Sing staff."Dr Steven Frye.

Sq::::h::fn:xe 0"¥1S Ba1yNick MichaelThe fall semester of 2008 was a pivotal period in historywith the dection of a new president. For most srudents.,the amount of acrual involvement in politics was limitedto ralking aoout issues and votingBut sophornore political science and history major Jane Messinatook the semester off from school to hdp with PresidentBarack Obama's political campaign trail."1 \\lorked in a cold small office with no heat and no air 000-ditioning," she said. "There were probably about 25 people in ourroom at one time. I shared my desk widl three other people."Herofficial tide in the campaign was Deputy Field Organizer,and the tab included a wide variety of duties.''] worked seven days a week:, thirteen hours a day," Messinasaid. "1 recruited volunteers. organized the north side ofRichmond, Virginia, knocked on doors, made thousands ofphone calls, entered dara, invited people to events, organizedevents and trained volunteers."Messina was also involved with the faith outreach programfor the campaign."1 was a £"lith community contact, which means that 1 metwith different leaders of faith in Richmond and tried to havethem hold events at their churches," she said. ''1 also spoke at afew churches aoout volunteer opporrunities."Messina said she thought Obama was the perfect CUldidatefor whom she could campaign.''1 have always wanted to \\Q[k on a campaign, and I believedthat [Obama] should be the next president," Messina said. " Iwas doing everything I could to get him elected. 1 believe in hispolicies, and I believe they will work."Messina met Obama severa.! times.'''The firs t rime I met him was in the SUrrll11er of 2007 inHuntsville, Alabama," she said. "He shook my hand, and 1told him 1 was going [0 vote for him, and then we talked aooutbaseball. The amazing thing aoout him was that he was a normalguy. He joked \\lith me and laughed with me."Prior to her campaign work in Richmond, Messina had aninternShip with Arkansas Representative Vic Snyder, which setthe stage for her second Obama encounter.'''The second rime I met [Obama] was in Washington, DCon Capitol Hill this swnmerduringmy intems~" Mess.im said."1 congratulated him because he had JUSt won the democmticnomination. The third rime I saw him was 'when he was in Rich·mond a few weeks before the election holding a rnlly:"Though working for the campaign did not earn her collegecredit, Messina said there were countless benefits.'1leamed more aoout politics on that job than I ever wouldhave in a cIassroom," she said. '1 leamed that politics is nothingwithout people being accive in their rn.vn government and thatit rakes a lot of people and work to get someone decreet It'shard, and it will make you C11~ but the outcome is worth all thelong hours and all the tears."Messina said she also used her time and influence as a wayto shate Christ with odlers."1 had to represent my morals ruld my faith to my C(}-workersthat weren't Christians," she said.She said her most memorable moment of the campaign waswhen Obama was announced as the nation's ne.xc president."On election nigheafter Ohama won, around three thousandsrudems took [to] the Streets of Richmond and started chanting'Yes We Did' and 'Ohama', and they were singing the n:uionalanthem while holding hands," Messina said. ''All different races,genders. se.xual preferences and ages were there holding handsand walking to the Capitol building in Richmond. The cool thingis that Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy, and I wasthere when the firs t black President was dected.

Here at Harding, some of us like to consider this ourhome for four years, while others continue to stay andmake it their home permanently. As the years go byand as people come and go, students at Harding areblessed with Christian leaders who promote growth onan intellectual, social, and, most importantly, a spirituallevel. Not only do they make Harding a place thateveryone, including their families, can consider home,leadershipbut they create a place where God is glorified throughall things.Nicole Sullengerdivision 137


They created degrees from the ground floorup, represented the eyes and ears of Hardingnationally and even helped keep tuitiondollars down, yet the majority of people oncampus had never heard of the UniversityBuilders Circle (UBC), a smaller group thatformed from the President’s Council.When Dr. Cliff Ganus was president in1965, he realized very quickly that the leadershipat Harding needed to be larger than just thepresident, vice presidents and faculty members.From that thought, the President’s Council wasborn. Over the years, it continued to grow tomore than 1,100 families.Mike Williams, vice president of Advancementand member of the UBC, said that overthe years, the President’s Council brainstormedcreating a new group in order to be morepersonal and helpful.“In 1999, another smaller group startedto be more intimate and defined,” Williamssaid. “It started with 75 members for our 75thanniversary and had grown to 120 families,which are all over the country.”The members of the UBC gave at least$5,000 a year towards different projects,including scholarships funds, capital projectsand new buildings. Each member attendedannual meetings to find out the latest opportunityor idea.“These people that are the UBC are differentkinds of people,” Williams said. “They are notpart of this group to get a tax break but becausethey want to be part of something special andprovide the best education to students [that]they possibly can.”They also carried this responsibility alongwith their real jobs. Several men who graduatedfrom Harding and went on to HarvardLaw School saw the importance of having afinance degree and created every aspect of itfor the College of Business Administration.The men were regular business guys takingtime from their busy lives to provide a greateropportunity for students.“This group of individuals from the HardingBuilder’s Circle provided the challenge tobuild the finance program and then backed upthis challenge with funding,” Dean of COBADr. Bryan Burks said. “I can honestly say wewould not have a finance degree today if ithad not been for these men who love Hardingand the College of Business. They wanted toensure we continue to produce graduates whoare well prepared and relevant for today’s businessglobal economy, who are character-basedwith a servant heart and who are purposefulin their career.”Williams said that he and the UBC acknowledgedthe change in accessibility to studentloans and scholarships. The group was eagerto provide what they could to keep as manydollars down as possible.“The Advancement program is very sensitiveto what goes on according to tuition revenue,”Williams said.Members of the UBC wanted to give inevery way possible so that they could provideaffordability to the students and help keepstudent rates down.“This same group was the group that waspaying for my scholarships in college,” Williamssaid. “I was part of the UBC because I felt itis my responsibility to give back to Hardingand provide scholarship opportunities totoday’s students.”Williams said he wished he had realized thenumber of people that were contributing tohis education. He also wished today’s studentswere able to realize the energy and time peoplehad put into their education.“People were out there dreaming for me,and now I’m 45 and I’m dreaming for studentsnow,” Williams said. “[UBC members] wantto be part of that and pay for someone else’sscholarship.”All the pieces were there to connect theUBC to the entire institution. The futuredream was to provide an advisory board forevery department. The boards would exceedexpectations as far as accomplishing goalsthrough relationships and creating opportunitiesfor each department.“Dr. Ganus was right when he said Hardingwould be a very complex institution,” Williamssaid, “and that it would take a village bringingresources together to accomplish what we haveover the years.”Allison WeaverGiving138 leadership

Creativity \ president finds outlet in the arts\From delivering bread to working for a photographystudio in high school, President Dr. David Burks wasnot aware of his full passion for creative and liberalarts until he was a student at Harding. While Burks filledthe traditional administrative tasks as president, manypeople did not realize his creative side and the artisticinfluence he had on campus.“I love the arts, and I love going to drama productionsand going to the musicals at Harding,” Burks said. “Ialso enjoy going to the rehearsals for them. I really doenjoy going to Spring Sing, the [Homecoming] musicaland the dramatic arts, and I think it’s a marvelous partof the Harding environment.”When Burks started school at Harding in 1961, he wasa personal photographer as well as a staff photographerfor the Petit Jean. His passion for photography startedbefore going to college. While in high school, he spenttime developing his own film and processing it in hisown dark room.“When I came to Harding as a student, [photography]was an easy way for me to make some money,” Burkssaid. “So I had a photography business on the side. Itook club portraits, and then I took pictures for thePetit Jean through a scholarship to help me pay mycollege expenses.”Burks continued to develop his creative spirit wellinto his adult life. A recent ambition he had that manydid not realize was the interest to play the piano. Hebegan taking lessons under the direction of DonnaJo Miller two years ago and devoted two hours dailyto practice.“I guess it was a desire to do something I’ve neverbeen able to do before, so I bought a grand piano andtry to practice for a couple hours a day,” Burks said.As if photography and piano were not enough tosatisfy the right side of his brain, Burks also gained aninterest in architecture.“I have a great love for architecture,” he said. “That’salways been a secret ambition of mine.”As president, he became more involved with thedesign and building aspect of the university than somewould have expected.“Dr. Burks has a little draft table in his back room[of his office], and he will get the plans and sketcharound on them,” Assistant to the President NathanCopeland said. “He is into it. He has got this architectstuff figured out.”Burks said he worked with the Harding Universityarchitect, Mike Steelman, who had done most of the workon Harding’s campus since Burks had been president.Burks spent a lot of time with Steelman to ensure thathe had an input in terms of what they attempted to dowith new building projects and renovations.“It has been a favorite part of my job,” Burks said. “It’sgreat fun, and I thoroughly enjoy planning and workingwith committees on campus to plan buildings.”Copeland said that it seemed like Burks had done severaldifferent construction projects on campus, and as morebuildings went up, he got more and more involved in theprocess and learned quite a bit about architecture.Steelman told Copeland that once Burks retired, hecould just go into architecture.“He knows a lot about it now and has a great visionfor things, and that’s what he has done with all the newconstruction and remodeling,” Copeland said. “He hasthis vision in his head of how things should be, and that’skind of how it plays out. We’ve seen that so far, and Ithink he has got a few more in the future.”Allison Weaver140 leadership

Noah DarnellA landmark since 1934, the Harding University arch hasbeen a part of the campus since it was Galloway Women’sCollege. Though the campus changed constantly, the archreminded the people on campus of its older, smaller roots.Noah Darnell\ chancellor continues to work and lead at Harding\Dr. Cliff Ganus, Jr., leaned back in his desk chair and gazedout of the office window facing the front lawn onto acampus he had watched progress for much of his life.For 62 of his 86 years of age, Ganus made Hardinghis life and passion. Having served as president of Hardingfrom 1965 to 1987, he then became chancellor. In this role,Ganus performed a variety of tasks.“I’m involved in public relations, fundraising, studentrecruitment and representing the school at various functions,”he said.Whether he was serving as a representative of Hardingto receive a large donation, sitting in a meeting to discusspolicies or simply visiting a notable alumnus, all thesethings he did for a school he loved. Few students realizedhow much he did to further Harding’s stature in the worldbeyond Searcy.For 43 years, from his corner office in the AdministrationBuilding, Ganus watched out the window as historywent by as fast as students running to class. His officeonce belonged to the sitting president of the university,but when Dr. David Burks became president and theHeritage Building was constructed, Burks requested thathis office be built in the new building. As a result, Ganuskept his same office since he served as president.Because he had been involved with Harding for so long,he had an abundance of stories concerning the history anddevelopment of the school.“I remember the burning of the mortgage in 1939 onThanksgiving Day out here on the front lawn,” Ganus saidreferring to the celebration that took place when Hardingno longer owed any money on the original land.“It’s a little thing — burning of a mortgage — but in themeaning of the history of the institution, it’s something,” Ganussaid. “Harding has never been mortgaged since then.”When Harding made the transition from college touniversity in 1979, Ganus said he remembered that Dr. L.C.Sears was the one who unveiled the new arch sign reading‘Harding University’, which was prominently displayed oncampus since then.Ganus also shared his memory of the laying of thetime capsule between the Olen Hendrix Building and theBrackett Library.“In 2024, when it is to be opened for Harding’s 100thyear anniversary, it will have to be removed from the groundwith a crane!” he said. “I poured 3 tons of concrete on it toprevent a few of the men’s clubs from bothering it.”Ganus also remembered the day when the supportbeam for the roof of the Benson Auditorium arrived,and everyone on campus came out to sign it before it wasraised into place.“There’s an I-beam 7 feet tall, 135 feet long that theybrought in from Fort Smith [Ark.]. The whole school, faculty[and] students signed it,” Ganus said. “You could still see itif you got up in the attic. It’s there forever.”Ganus cherished all of these momentous occasions forthe university, having been here the entire time to see andexperience them all first-hand.“When I came here, there were only 300 students, fourbuildings of any consequence and just a handful of faculty— often a couple teachers making up any one department,”he said. “That was in 1937. Now there are over 6,000 students,45 buildings on 275 acres and 220 faculty members;I’ve watched it all happen out this window.”But as for the generations who have attended Hardingmore recently and will become the deans and chancellorsin 50 or 60 years, he had one piece of advice: “Early in youryouth, seek the heart of God. Seek His will. Begin whenyou are young and for all the days of your life.”Noah Darnell and Emily Hauptlisenior vice presidents, chancellor, vice presidents 143


While many girls grew up following the traditionalplan of getting married and startingtheir own family, not all conformed to thispattern. Director of Student Technology ServicesLora Fleener found her dream come true whenshe became a single mom to adopted daughter,Lydia, from Vietnam.Growing up in a home with adopted and fosterchildren, Fleener developed interest in adoptionearly on. There was hardly a moment growingup in her home that did not include additionsto the family.“It didn’t matter what color you were or whatsize you were; you were always just part of thefamily,” Fleener said.Later, Fleener attended Harding, and aftergraduation, immediately began working for theuniversity. With no husband or children occupyingher focus at the time, Fleener had pushedthe idea of adoption out of her mind. But thatall changed in January 2000 when she took a tripto Vietnam.“I did give some thought to single parentadoption but decided it would be too difficult,”Fleener said. “Then I met a friend who adoptedtwo little girls from Vietnam.”Lydia Fleener, daughter of Lora Fleener, plays in the flowerson Harding’s campus in April while wearing her DormNet T-shirt.Lydia said her favorite part of coming to work with her mom wasbeing able to give her mom hugs. Courtesy of Lora FleenerLora Fleener, director of Student Technology Services,spends time on the front lawn with her daughter Lydia onSept.18. Fleener adopted her daughter from Vietnam in 2002,and since then, the DormNet staff grew to love spending timewith her. Noah DarnellWhen Jessica Moore, who also worked forHarding as the women’s intramural director,approached Fleener about traveling with her toVietnam to pick up her newly-adopted daughters,Fleener readily joined her.“I fell in love with Vietnam and more importantlywith the beautiful children of Vietnam,”Fleener said. “I knew then that I wanted to adoptfrom Vietnam.”In November of 2000, Fleener began theprocess of adopting her daughter, which tookover two years to accomplish.“I received the call the day before Thanksgiving2002,” Fleener said. “That phone call starteda whirlwind that hasn’t stopped.”Fleener’s legal adoption of her daughter wasfinalized in Vietnam on January 22, 2003. Afterreturning to the states, Fleener chose to re-adopt,which allowed her to change her daughter’s nameand obtain a U.S. birth certificate for Lydia listingFleener as her legal mother.Fleener’s new life, while a blessing, also presentedits own challenges. Balancing a job, raisinga child and participating in community activitieswere hard enough for married couples, let alonea single mother of a 5 year old.“Being a single mother is much more difficultthan I ever could have imagined,” Fleener said. “Itis very rewarding, and I wouldn’t change anything,but it can be difficult at times.”Despite these challenges, Fleener enjoyed sharingall aspects of her life with Lydia. As the managerof DormNet, a communication support programthat employed students to help people on campuswith Internet connection problems, Fleener oftenbrought Lydia to come hang out with “the boys”at work. She got a big kick out of playing jokeson whomever sat at the Help Desk.“We have adjustable chairs at the Help Desk, andone of them taught her to go up behind someoneand pull the lever and lower the chair,” Fleenersaid. “She thinks that’s hysterically funny.”Though her life did not follow a traditionalpath, Fleener embraced every moment with herdaughter, both the joys and the challenges.“Nothing is more important to me than Lydia’shappiness. Even when it gets hard to balance it all,she is my number one priority,” Fleener said. “Iwouldn’t change a thing that has happened, andI know that God chose her for me. I thank Himfor that every day.”Farron Martin and Emily HauptliAlso known as the Lilly Pond, the fountain on the frontlawn has been a part of campus from its beginning.

Additions \three new deans appointed \As Harding continued to grow in 2008, oldadministration positions were filled andnew ones were created. Dr. Larry Long,Vice President of Academic Affairs, had abusy summer trying to define roles and meetthe leadership needs of various departmentson campus. A large part of that process washiring a new dean to oversee the College ofBible, as well as two brand new dean positionsin the College of Communication andGraduate Studies.“The two new positions are a part of ouroverall plan to look at the growing areas ofour university,” Long said.One of the new positions created was Deanof Graduate Studies, which was filled by Dr.Cheri Yecke. Long said with more than 20graduate programs in place, there was a needfor administrative leadership. Yecke brought awealth of experience with her having servedunder the George W. Bush administration inthe U.S. Department of Education, and shemost recently worked for former GovernorJeb Bush in Florida as the Chancellor of K-12 Education.“My first task is to bring consistencyand coordination to graduate programs andmake strong programs run more efficiently,”Yecke said. “I love Harding and Searcy. It’sa wonderful and warm atmosphere, and I’mdelighted to be here.”Dr. Mike James moved from the CommunicationDepartment Chair to the Dean of thebrand new College of Communication.“It has been a multi-year project,” Jamessaid. “It started when we began to realize wewere larger in a lot of areas than some of theother departments. As a college, we will getthe chance to spread our wings a little.”With more than 30 faculty and staff, theCollege of Communication had grown ata rapid pace. James said he expected moregrowth in the years to come and also mentionedhe started investigating the developmentof new programs, which included amaster’s degree.“Our biggest challenge will be space,”James said. “Right now we just don’t havethe room.”The College of Bible and Religion sawa familiar face fill the role of dean in 2008.Harding graduate Dr. Monte Cox movedfrom associate dean to dean. Cox said thatthough his duties had not drastically changed,he had a definite vision for the College ofBible and Religion.“We have a major five-year strategy plan,which includes a complete overhaul of curriculum,”Cox said. “We want to continue toteach knowledge but emphasize more thanjust knowledge.”Also among Cox’s goals were a remodeland possible expansion of the McInteer BibleBuilding, as well as decreasing the size offreshmen Bible classes.While the visions of the new Hardingadministrators varied, their one common goalwas to focus their colleges around Harding’smission. Long said he was very pleased withthe new selections.“I have great confidence in these threeindividuals,” Long said. “I see them asvisionary leaders and people that can getthings done.”Zach Welch146 leadership

In spite of all the technological advancementsmade to expand and improve ways of communication,some found it harder than everto understand and relate to more technologicallysavvy groups. Parents and older generationshad difficulty when it came to connecting withyounger generations who had been saturatedwith improving technologies and media.In an attempt to help bridge this cultural gap,The Institute of Church and Family and TCMagazine started a program called SYNC/SWIM,which was designed to inform and educate adultsabout the world that teenagers lived in.The main purpose of the SYNC/SWIMprogram was to help adults get in tune withteens and in turn help them travel down theright path. Brandon Tittle, assistant directorfor The Institute of Church and Family andone of the three members that comprisedthe SYNC/SWIM team, recognized the needfor better communication between older andyounger generations.“We just know that a lot of parents aredisconnecting from their teens, so we try tohelp them connect,” Tittle said.The SYNC/SWIM group traveled to differentchurches and conventions to show movieclips, commercials, explain social networkingand text messaging to help adults understandthe teenage world. Laura Edwards, managingeditor of TC Magazine, said that to preparefor each presentation, the group gatheredinformation in advance from students in thearea that they would be visiting. This ensuredthat the information they presented to adultswould be relevant to their own kids.“We use interviews and surveys from studentsand then [incorporate] that information [intothe presentations],” Edwards said.On the weekend of Sept. 19-21, theSYNC/SWIM team went to Hiram, Ga., foran international conference. These seminarstypically lasted around six hours.“Our weekend seminar with the SYNC/SWIMteam was an eye opener for those generationsremoved from our teenagers,” said Glenn Organ,a Nichols Street church of Christ elder fromBay City, Texas. “Their presentation depictingthe world teenagers live in today was factual,revealing and even shocking to those who don’tlive in their world. The challenges presented toparents, grandparents, elders and ministers werecarefully and well documented.”The SYNC/SWIM group hoped that understandingthe type of world that teenagers livedin would give parents and older generations anopportunity to help guide teens.“Youth workers and parents want to builda wall around teens, but we’re trying to helpthem understand pop culture so that they canhelp teens navigate it,” Edwards said.SYNC/SWIM sought to provide informationfor parents and older generations as theystruggled to reach out and influence the youngerpeople in their lives.“They can’t help if they’re oblivious,”Edwards said.The feedback that SYNC/SWIM receivedindicated that they accomplished their missionto enable more effective communication acrossgenerations.“Anyone raising teenagers or concernedwith their survival in an alien world will profitfrom SYNC/SWIM,” Organ said.Katie Fittz and Emily HauptliConnecting148 leadership

Serving \ director reaches out to nonbelievers\Before coming on as a full-time teacher in1995, Dr. Bill Richardson, the Director ofthe Center for Advanced Ministry Training,and his wife, Holly, were missionaries forseven years in several Latin America countries,such as Guatemala, Argentina and Chile.Richardson’s dedication to sharing the Gospelthrough missions caused Dr. Shawn Daggett,Director of the Center for World Missions, todescribe him as “a great leader, hard workerand man of vision.”As a faculty member, Richardson was notout in other countries doing mission work, buthe was still very much a missionary in Searcy.Richardson worked closely with a Hispanicministry, the “Casita,” which was set-up byDowntown Church of Christ. During the summer,Richardson also led a group of studentsto Bolivia and Peru.“Bill is one of the hardest working peoplethat I know,” Daggett said. “He also takes groupsof students to Latin America on survey andresearch trips to target new mission points andform teams to return to the field.”Richardson was inspired to be a missionaryby several people in his life. A visitingmissionary and youth minister, Jerry Hill, wasone of the first.“[He] put a very human face viewpointon missions,” Richardson said. “He was veryhumble.”Richardson graduated from Abilene ChristianUniversity, which was where the teacherof his very first missions class impressed uponRichardson how many people were lost andneeded God in their lives.“They say missions are better caught thantaught, and that was the case for me,” Richardsonsaid.Having a Christian education, Richardsontook several aspects to the mission field withhim. He took all the Biblical knowledge andtraining he received, but Richardson thoughthe learned more in the first year as a missionarythan he ever did in school. Richardsonalso believed that he mainly took “the loveand support of others” from school to themission field.Through his extensive mission work, Richardsonhad many types of cultural experiences.“To see the power of the Gospel penetratehearts is an experience,” Richardson said. “Justto see that and interact with people who are outthere seeking to become brothers is an experiencein and of itself. It’s very gratifying.”While many good opportunities and experiencescame from his time as a missionary,Richardson said that going to another country andpresenting the Gospel was difficult at times.“You want to take God and what youknow about Him and present it in such away that is divorced from our own culture,”Richardson said.Richardson went into the mission fieldthinking he would be teaching others, but hefound that God taught him more than he everimagined. He came away with more blessingsthan he knew.“What Jesus said is so true,” Richardson said.“If you leave your earthly homes, the blessings,even here [on] this earth, are so great.”Christie Cronkfaculty 151


Leading \ spreading God’s love through teaching\Harding Bible professor Dr. Allen Dileshad taught at Harding since 2005. Beforecoming to Searcy to teach, he was a missionaryabroad in Prague, Czech Republic.Diles first went to the Czech Republic withScott Karnses and Jason Locke from AbileneChristian University where the three were ingraduate school together. After spending ayear in the Czech Republic, they all returnedto finish graduate school and to form a larger,stronger team to go back for long-term missionswork in Prague.Originally planning to travel to Australia,the team changed their minds when the Berlinwall came down in 1989 and Communism wasfalling. The group knew that the people inthe Communist controlled areas needed theGospel and that this was their chance to go in,now that it was no longer illegal to preach theGospel. So they decided to go into the CzechRepublic instead of Australia in 1990.After this, the group returned to Abileneand Diles began building a team to go backand live in Prague. It was a ten-person teamthat packed their bags and left the U.S. formission work in the Czech Republic, includingDiles and his wife, Laurie.Although part of the group had already beento Prague, there were still many difficulties themembers faced upon arrival. The language barrierproved to be the most imminent of strugglesto get through. To overcome this, the team hadtheir own language teacher who worked withthem the whole time they were there.“The language was a hard one to learn,”Diles said. “It took over a year to learn howto speak it, and about three years to be comfortablewith it.”Another difficulty the team faced was theharsh culture of the Czech Republic.“It was a very closed and reserved culturethere,” he said.Status and use of a person’s official titlewas used very formally in all parts of society.How the team spoke, treated or interacted withanyone from the Czech Republic was influencedby the status that the group carried. This alsomade it more difficult in some circumstancesto reach out to those in the community.Along with the Czech Republic’s strict formalityand history came their lack of faith andacceptance of religion.“Between 60-70% of the people in that areawere atheists, even some of which claim to beChristians,” Diles said.Some of the things that impacted Diles’life and the lives of their team in Prague werethe few they did reach with the gospel and wereable to baptize. One of Diles’ favorite memorieswas converting their language teacher. She hadbeen with them for over three years when shefinally began going to church with them. Sixmonths later they had the privilege of baptizingher into Christ. Before her conversion, thelanguage teacher had also adhered to the strictcode of conduct found in the country, askingthe team to only call by her proper name. Afterher baptism, she told them that they were nowher brothers and sisters and that they could callher by her first name, Vera.“I have seen up close what society withoutGod is like,” Diles said. “Our society is becomingmore like that. The richness of my experiencesthere influences my teaching here.”Joseph Dickerson and Katie Ramirez152 leadership

Heroes \ new teacher starts team racing to save lives\New teacher and seasoned marathon runner Dr.Richard Brown added yet another dimensionto the good work done at Harding. Brown,an associate professor of marketing, began teachingat Harding in the fall of 2008 after teachingmarketing at Freed-Hardeman University inHenderson, Tennessee, for twelve years.After teaching at Harding for only a couple ofweeks, faculty, staff and students became impressedwith Brown’s initiative to take on leadership andshow his desire to help the hurt.“Harding says to me, ‘educating for eternity’,”Brown said. “I do my job here. I teach marketing,but I also teach about being a good personand using your abilities to help in whatever wayyou can.”As if taking on a new job was not enough,assuming career responsibilities plus extra tasksdid not seem like the lightest load. The additionalworkload did not seem to affect Brown as hebegan preparing a Harding team of runners,donators and supporters for the Dec. 6, St. Jude’sMarathon in Memphis, Tennessee.“To me, St. Jude’s is a hospital that researchesand [treats] childhood diseases,” Brown said.“They take the hardest cases and do the bestthey can. They save a lot of people that woulddie otherwise.”The money raised from the marathon wenttoward research, expenses of low-income patientsand the medical bills of uninsured children.“The first year I ran in that marathon, I didnot even know what I was running for,” Brownsaid. “I was just looking for a marathon in a bigcity [that was] somewhat close to me.”After he found out that the marathon was tobenefit St. Jude’s, he recalled his first memory ofthe hospital, which was an interaction he had acouple years back on an airplane with a motherand a sick child on their way to St. Jude’s.After that first marathon, he became interestedin St. Jude’s and its mission.“The year after that I raised $6,000 easily; I justgot the word out, and people were glad to help,”Brown said. “It grew from there, and we beganraising money on campus. Students, faculty andsponsors around town donated. Everyone thathelped by giving felt good about it.”The next year at Freed-Hardeman, a 13-memberteam was formed and ran the marathon. Thesecond year they had 30 runners; the third year,40 runners; the fourth time, 60 runners and thefifth time, 80 runners. Each year they increasedthe money raised by $10,000.“The money raised went towards buildings,research, doctors’ income and medical care,” Brownsaid. “If a child can’t afford it, [these funds] payfor it. They don’t turn anyone anyway.”Brown introduced the idea of helping St. Jude’scause to Harding’s campus early in the 2008 fallsemester and formed “Harding’s Heroes,” whichwas a group of runners, donators and supportersfor St. Jude’s.“My long term goal, say five years from now,is to have a Freed team, Harding team, OklahomaChristian University team and Abilene team,”Brown said. “I’d like it to become somethingchurches of Christ schools do – something wedo together.”His hopes were that other schools wouldsee that Freed-Hardeman and Harding hadpositive experiences, recognize that it was agood opportunity and be encouraged to forma team as well.Brown became an even stronger supporterlast year when one of his best friend’s daughterswas diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease and wastreated at St. Jude’s.“Last year, I was running for one of my verybest friend’s daughters, and that made it morerealistic for me,” Brown said. “Before, I wasjust trying to raise money for what I thoughtwas a good cause. Now, I know how good ofa cause it is.”He gave an example of what the hospitallooked like through a different light.“If you had a globe with pieces of land thatdon’t represent acreage but how much good thereis in the world, St. Jude’s would be a big chunkof land,” Brown said. “You’d be able to see itfrom far, far away, showing how much goodthey’re doing.”Allison WeaverDr. Richard Brown, associate professor of marketing, teaches his world of business class on Oct. 24. Brown was involved with various activities around campus,such as the St. Jude’s Heroes at Harding, although this was the first year at Harding for both him and his daughter Bethany, who was a freshman this year.

Dedication \ dean keeps harding in the family\While Assistant Dean of Students Sheri Shearindescribed herself as being “a pretty boringperson,” anyone acquainted with her knewthat statement could not be true. From being anelementary school principle at Harding Academyfor 11 years to being regularly called to residencehalls in the middle of the night, Shearin hardlylived a boring life.One aspect that kept Shearin’s life interestingwas her great love for Harding. Her ties withthe university ran deep and went far back intoher family.“My grandmother went to Harding atMorrilton before it even moved [to Searcy],”Shearin said. “My father and mother came hereand graduated in 1945, and then I came in 1965.When I graduated in ’69, I was one of the first, ifnot the first, third-generation student to graduatefrom Harding.”Following graduation, Shearin taught publicschool music for two years in Nashville. In 1971,she married current professor of music ArthurShearin, and the opportunity arose for her and herhusband to come back to Harding. Arthur wasto teach in the department of music, and Shearinwas to be the music department secretary. She saidthey jumped at the idea of returning.“We were so excited! We stayed here for twoyears,” Shearin said. “We covered a teacher whowas on leave getting a doctorate.”At the end of the two years, the couple movedto Boulder, Colorado, so that Arthur could workon his doctorate at the University of Colorado.In 1976, the Shearins went to Freed-HardemanUniversity in Henderson, Tennessee, for six years,where Arthur taught music and was the chair ofthe music department.However in 1982, the couple once again foundthemselves back at Harding. Shearin’s husbandwas offered a faculty position, and he agreed toit, allowing the couple to return to Harding.“This had just always been home,” Shearinsaid. “Harding is just part of our family.”Because of her attachment to Harding, Shearingladly accepted the offer to become AssistantDean of Students in 2005.“I just love working with women at the ageof their life when they are making decisions thatform what they’re going to be doing for the restof their lives and trying to help them see thatwe all make mistakes,” Shearin said. “It’s whatwe do with the mistakes we made that makes adifference in life.”While Shearin enjoyed working with students,she said her job was stressful at times, and like anyjob, did not come without challenges.“It’s not an eight to five job,” she said. “Rarelydo I go through a week that I’m not called out in thenight to a residence hall. I rarely have a week thatI don’t go to the hospital, either to visit somebodyor to be with somebody in the emergency room.And of course there’s the discipline aspect, andat times, it takes the majority of my job, and attimes it doesn’t.”These challenges did not outweigh Shearin’slove for the students and also for the other deansshe worked closely with though.“The four deans work very well together,”Shearin said. “We all are on the same page, so tospeak. We support each other. We are in very muchagreement on how things should be handled.”Overall, Shearin felt blessed with the opportunitiesshe received by being a dean and therelationships it allowed her to form.“What a blessing to work in a place like that— where you know that you’re going to be supportedby your fellow workers and that any of thefour of us will handle something and that it will behandled in the same way with the same outcome,”she said. “That is just so wonderful!”Rebecca Harrell160 leadership

Stringed EnsembleStudents and community create harmonyMusical groups like Belles and Beaux, the Concert Choir and Chorus often provided entertainmenton campus and represented Harding at different places around the nationand globe. Also in this mix was the Harding University/Community Orchestra, whichgave students a unique opportunity to get involved with the community and escape from thedemanding collegiate lifestyle by doing something they enjoyed.The orchestra brought people together from inside and outside of the music department aswell as from the community.“The unique thing about the orchestra is that we not only have college students but also highschool [students] and older adults,” junior violinist Sam Strange said.Senior Jennifer Wimberly, another violinist, also considered the communal aspect of theorchestra to be beneficial.“Being with younger and older string players makes me feel more connected because we havea common interest and goal,” Wimberly said.The orchestra provided plenty of opportunities for people to shine.“Typically, the fall semester concerts feature the orchestra as a string orchestra only, whilethe spring semester concerts feature a full orchestra,” Dr. Michael Chance, director of theorchestra, said.There were three major concerts on campus, as well as opportunities for string players toperform in the Homecoming musical orchestra.“As a member of the orchestra, I also get the chance to perform in the musicals, which issomething I love,” Strange said. “I have been in the musical the past two years. It’s such a differentand fun experience.”The orchestra performed standard classical works for strings, opera overtures and moderncompositions, as well as a few different pop tunes. It also enabled its members to do other relatedthings, such as counting towards a lab credit for performance majors.“Like everything that students are involved in around campus, these students often get chancesto audition and perform professionally as members of various orchestras around Arkansas andsurrounding areas,” Chance said. “Also, many upper-level university string players teach privatelythrough the Searcy Community School of Music.”Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the orchestra was that it provided players an escapefrom the anxieties of classes and other demands.“I have a very busy schedule,” Strange said, “but orchestra forces me to take time to sit downand play music. It’s actually very therapeutic.”Wimberly also viewed the orchestra as a stress reliever and mental vacation.“I kind of get in a different part of reality and become totally focused on the music andpeople around me,” Wimberly said. “Life outside of orchestra doesn’t even cross my mind inthe two hours we’re playing. In a way, it’s a stress reliever because I’m able to clear my mind ofeverything and just play what I love.”The orchestra provided many different outlets for its players, but it was occasionally difficultfor the group of talented musicians to remain united. Despite the sporadic disconnect, theorchestra was wholly considered to be a positive activity.“[A big challenge is] staying connected as an orchestra as we play,” Wimberly said. “We allget into our own little worlds while playing and start to forget the other string players. But really,I don’t feel like we have many challenges. Everyone seems to enjoy themselves pretty wellwhen we get together.”Farron Martin and Rachel Klemmerart/music 167

Courtesy of Beth WilsonThe social work community practice class taught by Kathy Helpenstill, adjunct instructor and contractclinical social worker specialist, participated in many different organizations in Arkansas to get itsstudents out into the social work atmosphere. Students in the class were divided between threedifferent places where they could learn and help out.One such organization was Jacob’s Place, a non-profit homeless shelter in Searcy.“Jacob’s Place exists to give people a second chance,” senior James Arbuckle said. “It gives them thatopportunity by offering free shelter, budget advice, help finding a job and a great Christian environmentto raise a family.”Arbuckle heard about the shelter through other social work majors and then started working withthe shelter in the fall of 2008. He organized different fund-raising events, including a motorcycle showand selling T-shirts in the student center.“Working at Jacob’s Place has given me a greater appreciation for the things I have,” Arbuckle said.“The people there are not there by choice but rather circumstances.”Senior Heather Mitchell was the secretary for Jacob’s Place.“I feel called to love and serve the poor and those who are hurting because of my faith in Jesus,”she said.Mitchell contacted the director of Jacob’s Place over a year-and-a-half ago after hearing about theshelter from a friend. She worked to raise funds and awareness for the shelter.“I know that to be committed to service and advocacy of others is such a blessing,” Mitchell said,“and I cannot imagine feeling more purpose anywhere else.”Students were also involved at Hope Cottage.“Hope Cottage is a domestic violence center for women and children to get back on their feet thatis safe,” Helpenstill said.Senior Jennifer Martin began working with Hope Cottage in the fall of 2008. Her class mostly workedwith getting awareness out on the issue of domestic violence. They organized a Domestic ViolenceAwareness Event at Berryhill Park on Oct. 11. The event included a T-shirt display that held 300 shirts,each representing a woman that died in the state of Arkansas within the last 10 years from domesticviolence. The event also included family activities such as snacks and face painting.“Domestic violence is an issue we hear about but rarely choose to experience through others,” Martinsaid. “It has allowed me to see the reality of this issue and has given me ways to act on my knowledgerather than to just keep the facts inside.”The last program that social work majors worked with was the Child Safety Center, which served asa safe haven for children who were abused or neglected. They promoted friendly care of the childrenand forensic investigations of child abuse and neglect.“We offer education, awareness and prevention based [on] safety for the community,” Helpenstill said.“We also provide referrals to families that need help with legal assistance, housing and counseling.”Those involved with the different programs said that their lives greatly benefitted from workingwith the agencies. Like Mitchell, several continued to work for or with these programs even after theywere out of the class.Joseph Dickersonwhat’sin aname?The Ezell Center is named after Houston and MableEzell and houses the behavioral sciences department.Mr. and Mrs. Ezell combined their talents in an effectivework for the Lord, and together their Christian workhas affected the lives of people in many countriesand on several continents.

Basic NeedsHUT prepares students for missions abroadThere were mud huts, African compounds, Latin American adobe brick houses, Appalachianshacks, Asian stilt houses, slum houses and refugee camps to choose from. Typical Americanhouses, dorm rooms, apartments, hotels or motels were not an option. When students experiencedHarding University at Tahkodah (HUT), temporarily surviving the global village was a necessity.In 2000, Camp Tahkodah, located an hour from Searcy, gave Harding permission to use 100 acresof their land to develop a global village for students to learn how to live in different parts of the worldin hopes of being more prepared for the living conditions they would face in future mission work ortravels abroad.When current director of HUT Oneal Tankersley came on board in 2002, two houses were underconstruction.“Once I became the director of HUT, I designated two days a week to go out there and build, butit’s hard to get a lot done when it’s just you and maybe one other person,” Tankersley said.By 2003, the first group of students came for the two-week intersession course. A course was constructedcalled Developmental Ministries for students serious about going into the mission field or forthose studying abroad at Harding University in Zambia (HIZ). In order for the students to obtain thegreatest impact possible, a substantial amount of time in the global village conditions was necessary.Therefore, intersession was the best time to make that possible.Each intersession, the students who participated in the course were taught how to cope in differentliving conditions. They were taught in areas such as simple energy production, water purity, health care,general healthy living and sanitation.“Most people in the world don’t have systems as well-developed as we do in America,” Tankersleysaid. “Our students need to pay attention to how to deal with these sorts of things. We want to try andsensitize students to these issues.”Youth groups and junior high and high school students that participated at HUT stayed on one-nighttrips. Harding students who had an interest in health care missions stayed for one day and overnight,and summer interns stayed for three days. The intersession course was the flagship course, lasting twoweeks. It was intended for those serious about missions.In 2007, the first group of students studied abroad in Zambia through HIZ. One student fromthat group who also experienced HUT said she would not ever want to trade the time she spent withher group because it was such a great experience.“I would recommend the HUT course to anyone because it made people aware of what is goingon outside of their own lives, plus it taught people very valuable skills,” senior Sarah Hackney said.The course taught students different skills that were useful in different cultures and taught themappropriate technology that helped the locals find ways to use the resources around them.“The teachers really pushed us to learn a lot while we were there,” Hackney said. “They pushedus to expand our worldview, the compassion [we] have for others and our awareness of what is goingon in the world around us.”Another student that experienced HUT had similar views on the time he spent there and howvaluable it was to him in preparation of his summer 2009 trip to Africa.“It has been the best class I’ve taken at Harding,” senior Randall Gabriel said. “You learn everythingfrom organic agriculture to appropriate technology in third world settings. They do simulationsas close as possible to third world experiences, from language learning to buying food in a crooked,government-run market.”Although HUT was not always fun and easy, the students were thankful for the time they spentlearning how to make an oral-rehydration solution or purify dirty water in hopes of bettering someoneelse’s life.Hackney said HUT accomplished its purpose for her semester abroad in preparing her for the livingconditions she experienced while in Zambia.“There were several times throughout the trip when things would not go as planned and our groupwould say things like ‘It’s better than HUT!’ ” Hackney said.She said the funny thing about that statement was that her group loved HUT and suggested thatit always be a required course in order to attend a semester in Zambia.Tankersley’s dream was to provide students with the quality of education to be “world-class, topnotch”people who understood cross-culture dynamics in a helpful and meaningful way.“I want the students to know the skills that would be useful to people to understand world issues,”Tankersley said. “I want the students to have that understanding in their mind because they experiencedit. I want them to be able to watch CNN and process the news differently because they had a tasteof those things.”Allison Weaver170 academics

Growing LifeBiology class identifies new genes in plantsStudents in Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Rebekah Rampey’s advanced genetics class receivedthe unique opportunity to take ownership of real scientific research and add their distinctivefindings to the scientific community.The class studied the Arabidopsis plant as a model for genetic research. According to Rampey,the plant had been used by hundreds of researchers around the country in the last 15 years to learnmore about plant growth and development. The main advantage of using Arabidopsis was that ithad a fast life cycle, which allowed the class to study mutations in the offspring quickly and get resultsfaster. It also had a small genome, so it was easier to track mutations.“Just like we have used mice in research to learn more about humans, we utilize Arabidopsis tolearn more about wheat, tomatoes, etc.,” Rampey said.However, classes were not typically taught with this much emphasis on actual genetic researchbecause laboratory work was expensive. In the fall of 2006, Rampey became a Howard Hughes MedicalInstitute participating faculty member alongside principal investigator, or director, Dr. Bonnie Bartelat Rice University. As a result, the Howard Hughes grant, which was very prestigious in the scientificcommunity, gave Rampey enough funds to provide a genuine research laboratory class.“I have redesigned the advanced genetics laboratory course [BIOL 371] at Harding to providejunior and senior biology and biochemistry and molecular biology students with an opportunity topursue independent, open-ended research projects in a laboratory setting,” Rampey said. “Each studentin the course works completely on their own on a different project focused on a genetic experimentin Arabidopsis, yeast or bacteria.”Students in the class were required to spend at least four hours in the laboratory a week; however,some had to spend more time than this, depending on the particular experiment they were doingand the results they got.“I like doing the research,” senior biology major Garrett Sheumaker said. “It’s fun to me to dosomething that has never been done quite this way before and get results from it.”The class also shed light on the scientific process and showed why it was so useful to researchers.“I discovered that I like the scientific process, where you come up with a question and then makeup an experiment to find and answer,” junior Lori Wheeler, who took the class for independentstudy, said.The projects that the students worked on were actual research pursuits that had never been donebefore.“We are working on small details of the plant that have never been documented or proven inthe lab,” senior Luke Smelser said. “It is a unique piece of information that we get to add to thescientific community.”Rampey told her students on the first day of class that even if nothing worked for them the entiresemester, it would teach them many valuable lessons about science and research.“This is the one science class where you are actually performing research like you actually would ina professional lab,” Smelser said. “You are working on the same kind of projects that a Ph.D. wouldbe working on. It gives you a taste of what it would be like to do this sort of thing for a living.”Christie Cronk and Rachel Klemmerwhat’sin aname?The Pryor-England Science and EngineeringBuilding was named after Don and Lynn Englandand Dr. Joe and Bessie May Pryor.

Always WatchingA behind the scenes look at chapel recordersThey saw you when you were sleeping; they knew when you were awake and when youwere finishing your homework — in chapel. Every day, someone sat in the TV-16 studio,located in the Reynolds Center, and controlled two cameras in the Benson Auditorium,one of which scanned the audience during the 9 and 10 a.m. chapels.Senior Joshua Morgan and junior Rachel Gardner, both electronic media production majors,were two students hired for this unusual on-campus job. Requirements that Morgan andGardner had to meet for the position included experience with video and television production,dependability and the ability to handle all the tasks and equipment.From their seat in the studio, the chapel recorders had a view of everyone in the auditorium.“There are a few aisles hidden from the side camera, but other than that, we can see andzoom in on virtually everyone in chapel,” Morgan said. “So you can imagine the fun we havewith that.”Morgan finished his third year as a chapel recorder working Monday, Wednesday and Friday.Gardner began in the fall 2008 semester and worked on Tuesday and Thursday. On the days thatthey did not work, both Morgan and Gardner attended chapel like everyone else.To learn the process of chapel recording, they had to watch an experienced student-workerwho showed them how to run all of the equipment. Trainees were partnered up with currentworkers who walked them through the different procedures, explaining the equipment as theywent along.“It was all on-the-job training, essentially watching and learning with a little bit of doinguntil you can do it all by yourself,” Morgan said. “The goal is for them to become more comfortableperforming larger tasks on their own until they are ready to do it alone.”There was only so much to pick up from watching, though, and eventually the new chapelrecorders had to learn by doing.“I shadowed someone who had been videotaping chapel for a while and then slowly begantaking over a few of the jobs,” Gardner said. “Eventually, I was left on my own and startedlearning from my own mistakes.”And mistakes did happen. If there were ever any problems, the chapel recorders always triedto continue videotaping while they or their boss, production technician Mark Prior attempted tofix the problem, but if they could not, they cut to a black screen.Before chapel began each day, the student worker turned on the equipment and checked thatit worked and that the settings were correct. They created the graphics that ran along the bottomof the TV screen with the names of every person involved in leading chapel, including thespeaker and song leaders. Then they set up the cameras, switcher board, hard drive and audio.In addition, because chapel could be heard live online, they also ensured that the stream fromthe College of Communication over the Internet worked properly.After chapel, they burned both the 9 and 10 a.m. chapels to a DVD and programmed the 9a.m. chapel to play on TV-16 at various times throughout the week.“The job is essentially a one-man band,” Gardner said. “I do graphics, audio, camera, technicaldirect and direct all at one time. If this was the news, each of those jobs would have oneperson working them instead of one person doing all five.”Although the students got paid for working in chapel — which Morgan said was his favoritepart of the job — there was a lot of work involved. Chapel recorders were constantly busy andworked hard to produce a great chapel video.“There always seems to be at least one person ruining the shot by sleeping, doing homeworkor not singing,” Gardner said.So just remember, before you decide to take a nap during chapel, God is not the only onewatching.Bethany Loftiscommunication 175


CelebrationComputer programming celebrates 25 yearsDuring the 2008 Homecoming weekend, many reunions took place, uniting people from nearand far. Alumni and family traveled the country to become reacquainted with one another,along with getting to know Harding again. Among these reunions was one that was 25 yearsin the making – the reunion of the 25 past Association for Computing Machinery teams.The ACM, a professional and academic society for computer science, had organized collegiatecompetitions for over 40 years. Teams of three were given problems concerning algorithms andmathematics dealing with computer programming code. These contests were timed, and whicheverteam finished the most problems correctly in the allotted time won. Colleges and universitiesfrom all over took part in these national and worldwide contests, often sending multiple teams.“I really enjoy being a part of the team,” freshman Nathan Hurt said. “The programmingcontests are definitely a challenge. I believe they will help me in those high pressure situationswhen I have a short amount of time to figure them out.”Harding’s advisor and coach for the team for the past 25 years was Dr. Steven Baber, professorof math and computer science. Baber organized the team in 1983 and was in charge ofthe program ever since. Baber saw a lot of success with the team since they began competing.Teams continually improved and advanced further than the previous years. The ACM team in1998 placed 29th in the world and 9th in the U.S. and in 2000 placed 22nd in the world and 8thin the U.S. The teams that they placed under were well known universities and institutions likethe Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Case Western Reserve University, Stanford Universityand University of California, Berkeley.Over the past 25 years, Baber enjoyed watching his students grow up and move on to theircareers.“I am [really] proud of those students that have participated on our team these past 25years,” he said.Members of these teams took the experiences of the contest with them as they moved onafter college. Some went on to become missionaries and college professors. Others were chiefoperating officers, vice presidents and managers for companies like Microsoft, Symantec, Procterand Gamble and other powerhouse corporations. One member even became an assistant to theU.S. ambassador in Oman.“The most important benefit from participating in the ACM contest these past 25 years hasbeen the confidence that is gained by all of our students,” Baber said. “It’s not just the teammembers that benefit from the successes. When our students see their classmates do well againstthe well-known schools, they are encouraged to know that they too can compete successfullyin the ‘real world’.”Realizing that the fall of 2008 marked the 25th anniversary of the team, Baber decided itwould be a good idea to hold a reunion of past and present teams. They hosted a luncheon andinvited over 90 members to come and share experiences with one another. Many of the pastmembers lived outside of Arkansas, but some were still able to come, including one from theoriginal Harding ACM team.“It was a great experience being able to look back at some of the older teams and realizewhat they had done,” senior Benny Hardage said. “When it first started, they were working onbig, mainframe computers, and it is neat to see the transition from then to now.”At the reunion, present and past members thanked Baber for starting the ACM. They expressedtheir thanks for his great teaching and coaching while they attended Harding. Even thenew members were eager to express their thoughts on the team and how it has helped them.“I think Dr. Baber is a great coach,” Hardage said. “He has done so well over the years, andI couldn’t ask for a better teacher.”Cody Waits176 academics

Mission AbroadLatin American summer campaignsIn the summer of 1976, Winfred Wright, the chair of the Spanish department, madethe decision to lead a group of students to Puerto Rico. While Wright had been amissionary to France for many years, he wanted to give his Spanish-speaking students achance to use their knowledge to reach out to local congregations in all of Latin America.This group eventually took on the title of Latin American Campaigns.For the next several years, the Spanish department was invited to Argentina, Venezuelaand many other countries. The original plan was to tour each country during onemission trip, but after the first travel to Venezuela ended up being such a success, thegroup decided to focus their mission work there.Over the years, the campaign program grew and provided students with the opportunityto not only help a country and its people, but also the ability to return toVenezuela after they graduated.“Over 20 former Latin American Campaign workers have returned to the missionfield over the years,” Ava Conley, chair of the Spanish department, said.Before students could sign up for the campaign, they had to meet several requirements,such as two years of Spanish and a year of training in various evangelistic fieldsof study. The students also trained in teaching and personal evangelism in Spanish. Whilenot having to claim Spanish as a major or minor, students did need a certain level ofknowledge in the language in order to attend the campaign.“We have to be able to converse and lead Bible studies with the people there, soSpanish is a must,” senior Kalin Caruthers said.Because of political turmoil in Venezuela, the Latin American Campaigns groupeventually began doing mission work in Peru.“I’m glad we did [switch] because I find the culture in Peru to be so rich and welcoming,”Caruthers said.While the students were there, they worked with churches and tried to encourage thecongregation the best they could. Students passed out fliers advertising for a weeklongBible conference, and they held small Bible studies with individuals. During all of theseactivities, the students realized how important being able to communicate with the peopleof Peru was to their mission.“We had to use the language,” Caruthers said. “We had to ask directions, study withpeople, talk to people in the streets and play with the youth in the community.”The students who attended these campaigns said they had pride in themselves, createda strong bond with their fellow teammates and developed a bigger love for theLatin American culture.Conley said that although this type of campaign group was different because of thelanguage requirements, it was still a great chance to work in the mission field.“It’s a chance for students to put their language ability to practical use and a greatway for them to enjoy the fruits of evangelism,” she said.Farron Martin and Katie Ramirezwhat’sin aname?The American Studies Building was built in 1953and houses the English department.

ExperiencePolitical science students as summer internsAgreat way that Harding students, both past and present, prepared for their future careerswas through summer internships. The summer of 2008 was no exception as a numberof students left for their hometowns or somewhere new to engage in practical learningexperiences in their respective fields of interest. Some internships helped reassure students thatthey were doing exactly what they wanted, while others realized they might be interested in adifferent environment.Senior Christa Mannen, a double major in history and English, conducted her internshipwith Brown Brooks Publishing Group in Dallas, Texas. Mannen said she spent a lot of hertime reviewing manuscripts while at the same time learning how to edit them. She also had thechance to write book reviews and participated in the joy of answering telephones, like manyinterns had the opportunity to do.“I think my biggest accomplishments were the book reviews I wrote,” Mannen said. “I reallyenjoyed considering the possibilities for a manuscript and suggesting improvements. I got toread a wide variety of both fiction and non-fiction. I also liked reviewing because it gave me achance to think analytically and creatively.”Junior political science major Tyler Jones did his internship in Florence, Ala., for ShoalsLaw Group.“After completing [Harding University Florence] in the spring, I moved back home and wentthrough the yellow pages until I found a legal assistant position,” Jones said. “I controlled informationin and out of the office, organized casework and observed court proceedings. Luckilyfor me, the attorneys I worked for allowed me to explore my journalistic interests by recordingwitness statements and interviewing new clients.”Jones said that after his experience, he really did not see himself becoming a lawyer in thesame capacity as those he worked for over the summer; however, he did feel it was a beneficialexperience.“A lot of people would call in a panic, and I was the first person they would talk to,” Jones said.“The law is so overwhelming to them, and I got to be a part of assuring them that the lawyersare interested in them as people. Not every lawyer views their clients as file folders.”Also a history major, senior Erin Williams chose a slightly different venue in America’s legalsystem. Williams began interning for the Kansas State District Court in Harvey County Kansasin June. While Williams said she did not shoulder much responsibility during her internship, shedid get to do a great deal of observation within the court system.“I saw lots of cases from various types of defendants,” Williams said. “Though some caseswere more difficult to hear than others, all of them were interesting, and I really enjoyed learninghow the law applied in all the cases.”Williams said her time at her internship helped her narrow her focus on her career path. Shesaid another large benefit was the amount of contacts she made over the summer.While these Harding students put in a lot of hard work and hours over the summer in 2008,they all concluded that they learned a lot from their various internships. There were many positivesthat came from summer internships, and benefits would continue to come throughouttheir careers as a result.“All internships show you the skills and insight needed to deal with real people in your profession,”Jones said. “You get to see and interact with people who live that profession every day andsee how it affects them. That is invaluable information as you decide on a career path.”Zach Welchhistory/social sciences 181

Nick MichaelWellness program promotes commitment to healthAt one point or another, students used the many resources available in the Ganus Athletic Center, whether it wasbecause they took a wellness class or because they chose to do so on their own. While it was common to seestudents engaged in various activities in the GAC, they were not the only group of people that took advantage ofthe facility’s workout room, swimming pool and basketball courts.Harding’s staff and faculty were the primary intended users for the resources in the GAC, which made up theWellness Center.“It is a [kinesiology] program designed to improve the health of HU faculty/staff [first] and then students second,”Stephen Burks, Wellness Center Coordinator, said. “Anybody who uses the GAC facilities is participating in the wellnessprogram.”The wellness program promoted wellness and healthy lifestyles through a number of different avenues. Theseincluded sponsoring a contest called Biggest Loser, encouraging involvement in running events such as the Midsouthmarathon, Little Rock Marathon, Bison Stampede and MADD Dash and offering aerobics/Pilates and circuit trainingclasses.Many faculty and staff wanted to live healthier lives but felt limited by time, so having the accessibility to the wellnessprogram made reaching their health goals easier.English professor Dr. Alice Jewell became active in the wellness program when it began 10 years ago. She wasexcited for the chance to be involved in aerobics again and eager to lose some weight she had gained in the last severalyears. Jewell participated in a class that rotated between aerobics, step, stations or Pilates.“I swim five days a week at 5:15 a.m. with the faculty-staff women, and I do aerobics or Pilates at 5:15 p.m., threedays a week when I can,” Jewell said.To carry that workout load, plus being a teacher and a mother of four, could seem daunting to some, but for Jewell,the effort to exercise consistently was worth it.“I feel great when I get out of the pool in the morning, awake and ready for my day,” Jewell said. “I don’t feel so greatwhen I finish the aerobics class, more sweaty and sore, but I know my muscles and heart need that exercise too.”Students like senior Joey Rivas also made time in their busy schedules to take advantage of the GAC’s resources.Rivas, who worked out in the weight room four times a week, said having access to the GAC made it easier and moreaffordable to work out than going to a gym off-campus.“I don’t know that I would work out any less, but it would be a lot harder [without access to the GAC],” Rivas said.“Since the GAC is free, it’s a lot easier on the budget.”The convenience of the GAC’s wellness program helped make living healthy lifestyles more realistic for faculty,staff and students alike.“I do not have the self-discipline to exercise and diet alone, so the Harding wellness program has really given me thegroup activities I need to stay on target,” Jewell said.Burks understood the need for lifelong success with healthy living.“A diet should be a change in lifestyle that can be done for a long period of time,” Burks said. “They have to bereasonable and realize they can’t overeat on a regular basis and they need to begin some sort of exercise program. Theydon’t have to eat rice cakes and run five miles a day to lose weight.”Burks emphasized that consistent, small steps in eating habits were really a big step in living a healthy lifestyle.“Most people can have success simply by eating less of the food they enjoy,” he said. “You may have to learn to eatsome healthier food, but sharing meals at restaurants and avoiding buffets can do wonders for a waistline.”Allison Weaver and Emily Hauptliwhat’sin aname?Dr. Clifton L.

Reaching OutHealth care leaders serve the communityDuring the spring of 2008, students looked to revamp a business organization with thepurpose of bringing a more mission-oriented face to the club. Originally known as FutureLeaders of Health Care and intended for health care management majors, The Way wasformed to give students from all majors more opportunities to serve God by serving othersthrough health care assistance. The changes to the organization’s name and purpose greatlyexpanded the club’s vision.“We chose the name to reflect our deeper dedication to community service in public healthand health care related community endeavors,” Teresa Chance, program director for The Waysaid. “The focus of the club has changed significantly from one with a small scope of influenceto one that focuses on opportunities to build community within community.”Effective in the fall 2008 semester, the organization adopted a new mission statement declaring:“As future health care leaders, our mission is to bring renewed unity, strengthened faith, encouragementto all and blessings in common through fruitful acts of service in Christ Jesus.”“We really want to be able to get several majors working together, each of us using our talentsto bring good to the world around us,” senior Carson Copeland said. “We want to bridge thegap between different social groups to glorify God and encourage others in the process.”One of the reasons that contributed to the switch from the HCM program to The Way wasbecause it came under new leadership. Chance, who took over as program director, said therewere some inevitable shifts in focus simply because of differences in leadership and missionstyle from one to another.“I believe that community projects and involvement are an excellent way to grow experienceand a professional base, but the truth of the matter is that we are always supposed to have oureyes on God and not our own personal gain,” Chance said. “We wanted a name and missionand path that reminded us of our ultimate purpose.”Although its focus was on health care, The Way worked with outside organizations such asthe Searcy Children’s Home.“We take a holistic approach, recognizing the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needsof others,” said senior Ryan Lambert, president of The Way.The group hosted Searcy Children’s Day on Oct. 6, which gave children from the SearcyChildren’s Home a chance to eat and play with college students on the front lawn.“We put this on for students of all majors to be involved with the kids, whether it be throughplaying on the moon bounce or painting their faces,” junior Maleah Young said.Chance said other projects that The Way was involved in included the 3C’s CommunityCleanup where the students worked with the Searcy Mayor Belinda LaForce and Habitat forHumanity to organize a community cleanup day around the Searcy Carmichael Center.Chance said she saw a big difference in the club since the new changes were implemented.“There is a drive and passion within this group that shows sincere love for God and a sinceredesire to impact lives,” she said.While The Way strived to be a blessing among the community they served, those involvedalso saw their own lives blessed by such opportunities.“I love to be a part of a group of people who is not focused on the needs of themselvesbut puts God first and others second,” Copeland said. “It’s easy to be involved with a groupwho truly seeks to help those in need.”Lambert agreed with Copeland in that The Way gave him an opportunity to serve.“Serving God by helping others is a way of life,” Lambert said. “It causes you to forgetabout yourself when you’re thinking of others more than yourself.”Christie Cronk and Rachel Klemmer184 academics

In the ClassroomEducation program prepares students for future“There is more to teaching than just getting students to remember a bunch of facts,” junior RachelGeddie said. “It is about creating universal concepts that will be with a child for a lifetime.” Thiswas a significant idea taught in the Department of Education. Accredited since the fifties, theteacher education program sought to equip its participants with the skills to accomplish that verything – to go beyond teaching children facts and instead instill universal concepts.Dr. Jan Morgan, chair of Teacher Education, was responsible for aiding students both in theprocess of being admitted to and staying active in the program. Consisting of around 200 people,it taught students how to become teachers and gave them the tools necessary to affect the livesof their future students.Those who entered the teacher education program chose from three different teaching licensures:early childhood, middle level or secondary level. Students dedicated most of their time to beinga student teacher during the last semester of the program. Student teaching was the capstone oftheir education and a major part of licensure.The teacher education program classes were very thorough and prepared the students. Beforestudent teaching, the students had to observe classes and pre-student teach. Senior Courtney Napieralacompleted her student teaching in the fall of 2008 at Central Arkansas Christian Pleasant Valley.“I feel really good about [the] Harding program compared [to] programs with other schools,”said Napierala. “I always feel a step ahead. It’s been great.”Senior Tiffany Allison, who did her student teaching in the spring of 2009, felt confidententering the classroom.“I feel very comfortable and am really ready to do it,” she said. “The classes I’ve had are verythorough, and the professors show [the] good, bad and ugly of teaching.”Napierala also felt outfitted for her student teaching.“I had lots of practice, and the classes prepared me,” she said. “We did lots of training on howto build your own curriculum and lesson plans and how [to] teach kids what they need to knowaccording to state standards practice.”While the program left its students feeling equipped, they still faced challenges and pressureswith the job.“I was definitely nervous about teaching because I’m in charge of the kids,” Napierala said.“What I teach them or don’t teach them is what they’re going to know and not know.”In addition to the preparation and experience, many students felt that one of the great thingsabout Harding’s program was the faculty.“The teachers here are all very passionate about what they do,” Allison said.The teachers of the program also taught from a Christian point of view, which made a considerabledifference to the students.“The teachers pushed meeting [the] needs of the child first,” Napierala said. “If you can’t meettheir basic needs, they’re never going to learn.”The faculty of the teacher education program felt equally grateful for the chance to work withthe students in the program.“I enjoy the relationship with the students,” Morgan said. “I enjoy seeing them grow from beinga student into becoming a teacher. It’s a great transformation.”Christie Cronkwhat’sin aname?The Construction for the Wilma StephensThornton Education Center began on Wednesday,July 28, 2004.

Across the OceanHealth care missions around the worldIt was always one thing to learn something in the classroom and quite another to experienceit first hand. Students involved in one of Harding’s longstanding mission services, the HealthCare Missions program, were able to go and serve both abroad and in the U.S. while practicingfirst hand the skills they attained at Harding.The idea for the Health Care Missions program started in 1975. The program’s first trip wasto Nigeria, Africa, in the summer of 1977. The group went to provide a place for the Africanpeople in the area to come for medical attention, some walking fifty to one hundred miles toreceive care.“[The purpose is] to fulfill the mission and example that Christ gave us — the commissionto serve people that are hurting,” Associate Professor of Nursing Jerry Myhan said. “Our goalis to instill in students’ lives the vision of serving after they graduate, either in a foreign countryor here in the United States.”A member on the Health Missions committee, Myhan stepped in to take the place of JaniceBingham, associate professor of nursing, as the Health Missions Coordinator while she was abroadat Harding University in Zambia (HIZ) in the fall 2008 semester.The program concentrated on areas around Africa but also took students to other places likeHaiti, Guatemala and the West Indies. The domestic missions side was headed by Assistant Professorof Nursing Karen Kelley, who mainly worked with groups in Arkansas helping students servelocally so that they would feel equipped to help in the future no matter where they went.Senior Jessica Snell traveled to Tanzania, Africa, with the nursing department in June of 2008.She brought glowing reports back from her time abroad.“I absolutely loved the people I met and the experience I had, and I would do it again in asecond,” Snell said. “It gave me practice in nursing skills that I will require on the job, a behindthe-sceneslook at how to care for patients in a cost-effective manner and above all, a greaterawareness of people’s spiritual and psychological needs in times of crisis and illness.”While in Tanzania, Snell experienced everything from pediatrics, labor and delivery and malesurgical procedures to helping host a seminar on purity where female Harding students spoke toover 100 women there.“This trip was one of the best learning experiences I have had in health care,” she said. “Thisopportunity prepared me in several ways for my future career.”Many people in the U.S. needed care as well. To meet these needs, Kelley headed up the domesticside of the program at Harding. She was involved in sending groups to help at the ChristianHealth Ministry, a health clinic in Searcy that was operated by the Downtown church of Christand River City Ministries in North Little Rock.“We need to serve wherever we can,” Kelley said. “There are people with deep needs righthere in the states, too.”With such an enormous impact on students, teachers and those being cared for, everyoneinvolved seemed to benefit from the program’s work.“It’s a win-win situation,” Dr. Cathie Shultz, dean of the College of Nursing, said. “We arehere to provide both hands-on care as well as spiritual care.”Joseph Dickersoncollege of nursing 189

Inmany ways, students saw the youth of the program as both a positive and a negative.“Being part of a program that is so young has its ups and downs,” graduate student David Moore said. “Inone sense, we as a class get to help make a lot of decisions with the faculty. On the other hand, sometimes itwould be nice not to have to deal with the program’s learning years and just get down to business.”As clinical director of the PA program, Gary Hill said he loved being a part of the young program. Heenjoyed the adventure of starting something completely new.“I feel very excited and honored to have the opportunity to be among the first faculty of the Harding PAprogram,” Hill said. “It has been a challenge for all our faculty [to develop] the PA program from scratch, butit is also very exciting and rewarding to develop this program the way we want, within the guidelines set by ouraccrediting organization.”Dr. Michael Murphy, PA program director, had been with the program since its beginning. He came to Hardingto help start the program after practicing family medicine. Murphy said the goal of the program was to getstudents a job as a physician assistant after graduation. It was a professional program, not a graduate program.The faculty strove to teach the students everything they needed to know to enter the world as a PA.“One of the interesting things about the PA program is that the class comes in as a cohort,” Murphy said.“They go through all the same classes together each semester.”Students in the PA program felt that they received the best training they could get.“I feel extremely prepared for life as a PA,” Moore said. “After the first year of solid book work and testing,there are a lot of doubts and questions, but when you get out to your rotation, things really start clicking. Youfinally get to put faces to all the items you spent hours and hours studying. “One of the highlights for faculty and students of Harding’s PA program was the Christian atmosphere.“I love working with and teaching these Christian students who are so eager to learn,” Hill said. “They areso willing to do what they can to help others. It is also encouraging to me to work with a group of people whoare all Christians.”Graduate student Kendyl Washburn agreed that the environment was unique to Harding’s program.“The values of Harding’s PA school and the wonderful faculty that exhibited these values was the big sellingpoint for me,” she said. “I believe there is so much value in being trained by teachers who have lived out theirChristian faith in the medical field.”The workload for PA students was very demanding. They had class from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondaythrough Thursday and 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Fridays, year-round. Through all of the hard work, the PA studentslearned to work together to get through it all.“It becomes like having a big family around here,” Murphy said.While the initial work could be stressful and overwhelming, students looked forward to the time when theycould apply what they were learning in the classroom to a real life setting.“PA school is hard [with] so much information coming at you at one time, but I have loved my experienceso far and would not trade it,” Washburn said. “I am blessed to be a part of a wonderful program and aroundsuch good people on a daily basis. I love all that I am learning and cannot wait for the clinical year when I canuse the skills and knowledge that I have learned to help others.”Bethany Loftiswhat’sin aname?Harding University’s new Center for HealthSciences was dedicated on October 24, 2008.Construction of the building began in July 2007 andwas finished within a year.

Film FestivalA student’s dream becomes realityHelping the film community of Harding University emerge out of the shadows had been adream of junior Tyler Jones since he arrived at Harding in the spring of 2007. With the helpof some friends and faculty, Jones made this dream a reality in the fall of 2008 when heorganized the first Exit 45 Film Festival. The film festival, which was sponsored by the CampusActivities Board and the Honors College, provided students with a unique creative outlet. Theevent was held on Nov. 15, and hosted over 300 students, family members and faculty.Jones, a documentary filmmaker, who was also working on a project for the summer of 2009in East Africa, said his idea started to materialize in the spring of 2008 when he got encouragingresponses from professors in the Honors College.“The idea for a student film festival took shape while I was at [Harding University in Florence]last spring, and that’s where I received the positive feedback from Dr. Dennis Organ and Dr.Jeff Hopper,” Jones said. “The festival would not have been as successful without Dr. Hopper’ssupport for student film on campus.”Jones was also able to employ the help of three celebrity judges for the event. Judges includedPatrick Cone, a documentary filmmaker in Dallas, founder of C1 Entertainment and 2004 graduateof Harding, Jill Tahbor, a screenwriter in Los Angeles, and Philip Martin, a film critic for theArkansas Democrat-Gazette.Senior Michael Brooker, a student filmmaker who entered a serious piece entitled “Life::Lemonade,” won both “Best Film” and “Best Director.” The film was about how a baby-sitter’sidea to set up a lemonade stand brought a woman unexpected encouragement for fifty cents.Brooker explained that he usually created films of a more comic nature and that this was hisfirst film doing something more serious.“I didn’t really go into this expecting to win anything,” Brooker said. “It was more of a personalchallenge to try and craft a story. I’ve done movies before, but none of them have reallybeen of a serious nature.”The top four winners of the festival went home with cash prizes provided by the HonorsCollege, and they also took home an antique camera trophy.Brooker said he looked forward to participating in next year’s film festival.Dean of the Honors College Dr. Jeff Hopper was unable to attend the event; however, hewas able to view the films and said he was extremely pleased with the success of Exit 45.“Filmmaking is a difficult and technical creative process, and it’s great that so many studentswere involved in that process,” Hopper said.Hopper also said an event such as Exit 45 provided a great educational opportunity for allthose involved, offering students a hands-on venue to display their talents.“Tyler and those who worked with him have a jump start on their futures,” Hopper said.“This experience is in my opinion far better than a grade in a course, the course itself or a hightest score.”Jones said he was not sure how much he would be involved in next year’s film festival. Howeverhe concluded that the success and participation in this year’s Exit 45 Film Festival would ensurethat it continued in following years.“I would love to create a platform for collaboration in regards to film here because there isn’ta film program at Harding,” Jones said. “Obviously I love movies because they are entertaining,but I think that film can reach a point to where it can lead to social change.”Zach Welch, some information provided by The Bison192 academics

Inauguration DayMcNair Scholars take a trip to Washington, D.C.On the afternoon of Jan. 20, students gathered around TV sets all over campus to watch thehistorical inauguration of President Barack Obama. One group of students, however, got tosee the spectacle at a much closer distance – only a football field’s length away from wherethe ceremony took place in Washington, D.C.A group of nine students from the McNair Scholars Program, one of eight Federal TRIOPrograms designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and directorDr. Linda Thompson endured a 24-hour bus ride to Washington, D.C. to witness the inaugurationfestivities firsthand.A week before Thanksgiving, the executive director of the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr.Commission notified Dr. Jim Carr, executive vice president, that they had tickets to offer Hardingif any students were interested in going to the inauguration.“Dr. Carr immediately thought of the McNair Scholars Program and called our office,” Thompsonsaid. “I wasn’t at all sure we could afford to send our students. Multiplied by the number of studentsthat would likely want to go, it was considerably more than my budget could handle.”Thompson opened the opportunity to all of the scholars, but there was a possibility that itwould cost $500, $50 of which had to be paid before Thanksgiving break. At that point, nine ofthe 27 scholars decided to attend. Thompson called various offices on campus to see if there wasany money available to help subsidize the trip. Dr. David Collins, assistant vice president and deanof student life, committed $2,000 to the trip, and the McNair office provided the remainder.“The trip only ended up costing the scholars $50 plus food,” junior Elizabeth Davis said. “Sinceonly nine people signed up, they covered the rest of the cost for us.”After arriving in D.C. on the evening of Jan. 18, the students spent Monday, Jan. 19, seeing theWashington National Cathedral, the Capitol, the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorialand eating at Hard Rock Café. While at the Capitol, the group met with Arkansas Senator BlancheLincoln, who gave them tickets to get into one of the four gated standing areas.On the day of the inauguration, the group ventured into the city at 4 a.m. and walked threemiles to the gate they had tickets for.“When the gates opened, there were mad rushes of people to get into the gates,” Davis said.“It was crazy and the most people I have ever seen.”Junior Myles Thomas and senior Jeremy Townsend found a patch of open space in the gatedarea, and the group inched closer and closer to the stage.“We were about 100 yards away from Obama,” junior Jacob Schroeder said. “We were the first10 of two million people to see [him] as president. We were so excited to experience this event.”Thompson noted that though the group would remember how cold and tired they were andhow much their feet hurt, they would always remember that they were present for the swearing-inof the nation’s first African-American president. Davis agreed that the trip was an unforgettableexperience.“It was so inspiring to be with that many fellow Americans to see something that will be writtenin history books,” Davis said. “There were people everywhere, and you could just feel the positiveenergy as President Obama gave his speech. People really clung to what he was saying, and everyonewas just filled with such happiness.”Rachel Klemmerwhat’sin aname?The Education Resource Center is a mediacenter/library located on the third floor of the Wilma-Stephens Thornton Education Building and containsa wealth of teacher resource materials, books, kits,DVDs and more.

RecycleASID Raises Money Selling Purses Made From Recyled MaterialLookout Coach and Prada — a new kind of purse hasmade its debut. Two times this school year, membersof the American Society of Interior Design (ASID)sold purses at the Searcy Town Square Festival. However,these were not just ordinary purses; they were made fromrecycled material.The recycled purses were sold on two weekends duringthe Fall 2008 semester. The first was in September, andthe second followed during Homecoming weekend, Oct.24-25. The purses were sold at prices ranging from $5 to$30, depending on the fabric used and size of the bag.“The purses are made of fabrics that have beendiscontinued or discarded by interior design firms andcompanies that use interior designers,” senior Stacy Geracisaid. “These fabrics would have otherwise been thrownaway. Some of these are made of recycled material or gothrough a process that is environmentally friendly, likethe adhesives that back certain fabrics. [The purse] mayhave low or no [volatile organic compounds] that aredetrimental to our health and environment.”In addition to this project, Geraci and Amy Cox,director of interior design and the club’s sponsor, agreedthat ASID provided a great way to raise awareness aboutinterior design and promote environmentally friendlypractices.“ASID provides its members with the opportunity toexpand their networking within the industry and communicateto the public and government the importanceof the profession of interior design,” Cox said.Being a sponsor, Cox was grateful to ASID for helpingthe student members with internships, allowing themto expand their knowledge of the field and giving thestudents an opportunity to get involved with projectssuch as Searcy Public Library, Habitat for Humanity andSearcy Children’s Home.Cox also felt that ASID was a good organizationbecause it allowed the members to show what interiordesign students truly did in their profession.“An interior design student must understand and beable to coordinate many non-aesthetic aspects of a projectincluding building codes, the Americans with DisabilitiesAct, lighting principles, fire safety, construction practices,building systems and sustainable building design,” Coxsaid. “With the media and programs on [networks] suchas HGTV, there is a common misconception of whatan interior designer does, and ASID is trying to get themessage out that we are more than simply good colorpickers.”However, ASID was not only a project-orientedgroup; it provided social benefits as well. Geraci saidthat when she came to Harding, she joined to get toknow other people.“I joined Harding’s ASID organization when I was afreshman because I thought it would be a chance to meetnew people as well as get to know the upperclassmen,” shesaid. “At the beginning of every fall and spring, ASID hasa mixer specifically for new students and members.”ASID allowed students to get to know each other,similar to a social club. They took trips, worked on projectsand attended events and lectures.“Once a month, Harding ASID students take a tripup to Little Rock for an ASID meeting with professionalsto learn about up-and-coming materials, processes andenhancements in the interior design industry,” Geracisaid. “Other events we attend include The Gathering andCareer Day in Little Rock along with ASID chapters fromother schools. These events include speakers, vendors,tours and design competitions.”Through the different opportunities it provided itsmembers, ASID was a great addition to Harding andprojects already supported on campus. The members feltlucky to have the chance to learn so much about theirprofession while still in college.Rebecca HarrellAmerican Society of Interior DesignRed Brick StudiosRow 1: R. McMahan, A.

P r e v e n t i o nAthletic Trainers Work Behind The ScenesAlong with Harding’s athletic training curriculumrecently being certified to enablestudents to take the National Athletic TrainersAssociation Board of Certification test, theAthletic Trainers Organization was revamped.“The program here has recently been accredited,and our program is growing like neverbefore,” senior Jeremy Carver said. “When I gothere as a freshman, there were eight studenttrainers in all. Now there are over 40 enrolledin our program.”While the only fundraiser the club did this yearwas to work the concession stand at intramuralgames, Carver said that their main concentrationwas to get the organization started and reachout to other students that might be interestedin athletic training.Obtaining national certification allowedgraduates to practice as trainers. Just like any othermedical field, a practitioner must be licensed bythe state. Once certified, trainers could work ontheir own in high schools, colleges, athletic clinicsor with professional sports teams. The AthleticTrainers Organization provided a convenientway for students to study for the exam.“There are around six of us that are planningon taking our certification exam, called the BOC,in April,” Carver said. “Most of us are all in theprocess of studying on our own, and [we] meeton Mondays to study together.”With the national accreditation came severalchanges to the curriculum. Freshmen were nolonger able to work directly with an athleticteam. Instead, they concentrated on their studiesand prepared for the full-time work thatwas to come.At the sophomore level, students were requiredto work in the training room 20 to 30 hours perweek, which let them practice alongside athletesand a professional trainer.“This helps us develop great relationshipswith the team because we work so closely withthem,” graduate assistant James Meadows said.“It’s a great feeling to see the team go out andsucceed.”Upper level students acted as the primarytrainers for the sports team while keeping thecoaches nearby for advice.“We have three years of field experiencebefore we graduate because we are [at practice]everyday,” Meadows said.As more and more students chose athletictraining as their major, they hoped to increasetheir involvement in the Athletic Trainers Organizationand said that they were excited aboutthe benefits the club provided.“This group has helped me see that I needto do my part in our local organization to notonly help increase knowledge of the professionin our area but also at the state and nationallevel so that athletic training will further beviewed as an allied health field,” senior MeganLankford said.Kayla Studivan and Rachel KlemmerSophomore Lacy Rush practices bandagingan ankle in the athletic training room onFeb. 3. “Being a part of the Athletic Trainersprogram gives me an opportunity to work oneon one with trainers and athletes,” she said.Nick MichaelRevelation PaintballCheerleadersRow 1: H.

O u t R e a c hBible Study Prepares Students To ShareFaith By Moving To New CitiesFor some time, missionary-in-residence Marvin Crowson had a passionfor teaching the Gospel. This was evident by the enjoymenthe received from hosting a Wednesday night Bible study in the fallof 2008, one of many studies he regularly led at his home, locatedjust minutes from the Harding campus. However, one could quicklytell the focus of his Bible study was not only related to the power ofthe Gospel, but also how each individual could effectively spread theWord. Crowson said that after 13 years of full-time pulpit ministry,he resigned to take on a different approach.“It has always been a dream of mine to plant churches in largelypopulated areas,” Crowson said.This dream materialized when he brought his program calledOutReach America to Harding in 2001. Program staff and involvedstudents worked in an office located on the first floor of the McInteerBible Building. OutReach America was designed to get students to gathera team of friends eager to move to large cities and plant churches.“It’s really simple,” Crowson said. “We inspire and encouragestudents to recruit their friends and move to big gateway cities wherethere are people from all around the world; I just help them organizeteam development.”No matter what one’s field of interest or major was, all werewelcome to join OutReach America and find a way to serve aftergraduation.“The thing that originally got me interested [in OutReach America]and keeps me coming back is that we focus on learning how to bemissionaries no matter where we go or what our professions are,”senior Jordan Gwinn said. “I think the idea of a business major likeme being a vocational missionary is pretty cool.”Crowson took students with him on a spring break campaignboth in 2008 and 2009 to visit church plants that had been startedon the east coast. He also planned to take a group to Jamaica in thesummer of 2009 to assist churches he helped plant in the beginningof his ministry.While past students reported success of their efforts, there werealso current students eager to graduate and plant churches of theirown. Sophomore Liz Elander said she had been involved in OutReachAmerica for several years and was excited about her future efforts.“In five or six years I plan on going to Fairbanks, Alaska,” Elandersaid. “I have some friends going with me, but we are still working oninterest for planting a church or possibly campus ministry.”Gwinn did not plan on going as far as Alaska, but he said he wasalso excited about spreading the Gospel after his time at Harding.“Right now I’m still trying to discover what it is I want to do,”Gwinn said. “I’m very interested in the Denver area and eventuallywant to work with youth, but I also have a passion for inner cityhomeless outreach.”Crowson said that a distinguishing feature of OutReach Americawas a friendship/relationship evangelism approach.“Some people stop at just the friendship part and don’t lead peopleto Christ,” he said. “We want to go that next step.”While bringing people to Christ was the ultimate goal, Crowsonkeyed in on the importance of maintaining friendships with peopleno matter what.“It’s always the person’s choice,” he said. “If they don’t becomeChristians, that doesn’t stop the relationship.”OutReach America’s work in the past eight years at Harding hasresulted in many groups of students being able to share the Gospel incities all around the nation. Crowson reported that, as of 2008, therewere teams of former Harding students working in Seattle, Brunswick,Boston, San Francisco, upstate New York and several other cities.While the program successfully launched several teams, Crowsonwarned against the danger of teams of friends waiting too long afterfinishing school before making the move to their choice city in fearof losing the desire to go.“My urging is to graduate and go,” he said.Zach WelchArchaeology ClubRow 1: B.

E t i q u e t t eStudents Learn Proper DiningFor the past 16 years, Lori Sloan, assistant professor of marketing, hosted an etiquette dinnerfor her women’s Christian business ethics class. The class spent the semester discussinga Christian woman’s role in the business world. Covering everything from how to protectoneself from sexual harassment to what to wear to a business dinner, the class was preparationfor the next step into the workplace.“I think it is important to have every opportunity to expose students to new and differentexperiences and to help them learn how to maneuver in specific business settings,” Sloan said.The business department took notice of Sloan’s success and asked her to host a dinner opento all students in addition to the one she did for her women’s class.The event took place on Nov. 3 at Ann’s Bridal and Etcetera, where the students enjoyed afive-course meal. Students were served dinner in an effort to teach them the proper way to eatsome of the more complicated foods, such as beef brisket, bacon-wrapped asparagus and rollswith butter. Before and after dinner provided an opportunity to mingle and network as onewould do in a real business setting.“The dinner gave me an idea of what to expect in the business world,” senior Nicole McNaltysaid. “We learn about the place settings and the little things, like what to do with your napkinand how to deal with certain situations.”Some thought that even people outside the business major could benefit from these practicalpointers surrounding the dining table.“Even students who are not majoring in business should learn the proper dining skills,” seniorNatalie Metz said. “It is helpful to know the expectations in business settings.”Throughout the meal, Sloan guided the class by telling them how to politely ask for somethingacross the table, how to avoid awkward or unpleasant situations, such as a hair in the food, andproper social etiquette rules, such as including everyone in the conversation.“I try to open the student’s eyes to new experiences that will equip them for the businessworld and broaden their circle of influences,” Sloan said.She gave everyone booklets filled with proper dos and don’ts so that students would havesomething to look back on when they went to dinners and prepared for interviews.“I really appreciate that Mrs. Sloan is open and honest about what she teaches and how sheuses her own experiences,” senior Mylah Watkins said. “Her lessons in manners and etiquettereiterated what my grandmother taught me.”While learning proper dinner etiquette as part of a class seemed out of the ordinary, Sloanfelt the experience was very practical.“Students remember this more than something they will learn in a classroom,” Sloan said.“The more polished we are, the more opportunities we have to shine the light of Christ.”Kayla StudivanAccounting SocietyAmerican Marketing AssociationRow 1: T.

BenefitsAMA Hosts Long Drive To RaiseMoney For Sunshine SchoolThis fall, members of the American Marketing Associationdecided to experience different types ofmarketing in order to raise money for a good cause.In the spring of 2008, the members came up with theidea of a Long Drive Competition to go along withthe theme of marketing for nonprofit promotions.By donating the money to the Sunshine School inSearcy, the members had the opportunity to giveback to a charity.“We did the competition last spring, and we gavethe money to the Sunshine School,” senior ChrisMiller said. “They were building a new facility at thetime, so we just decided to go ahead and do the samething this year.”The event was held at the Log Cabin Driving Rangeon Oct. 14. The members of AMA were not lookingfor the best golfers, they just wanted to see how farparticipants could hit that little white ball. The ruleswere simple. Golfers were separated into two groupsbased on gender. Then, each paid $10 for five balls.These five balls represented the number of chancesthey would have to hit the balls as far as they could.The longest drive out of both men’s and women’scategories received prizes.“The prizes were gift certificates to Golf Headquartersin Little Rock,” senior and vice president of AMALauren Fellers said. “First prize was for $100.”Senior Austin Orsburn and graduate student HollySkelton claimed first prize in the men’s and women’scategories, receiving a trophy in addition to the giftcertificates.“I won when they did the event last year, so Idecided to do it again and won,” Skelton said. “It wasa fun way to help out with a good cause.”The event proved to be a big success for the AMA,and they were able to donate $250 to the SunshineSchool.“We had about 27 people come out for the event,not including the AMA members,” Fellers said. “TV16even came out to do a spot for channel 16 news.”It also proved to be a big success for those whoparticipated in the contest.“I think the contestants enjoyed it,” senior MattMcCormick said. “They got to come out and showoff their long driving skills.”Skelton also noted that more people attended theevent than in the spring.“There was not as much participation among girlsas guys, but this year there were more girls than lastyear,” she said. “Hopefully in future years more girlswill come out.”Not only did the contestants donate to charity, butthey also got to relax and take a few swings of the clubon a beautiful October day.“People really like this event,” Fellers said. “It isso low key and easy to be a part of without being apro golfer.”Cody WaitsInternational Business SocietyStudents in Free EnterpriseRow 1: L.

R e s o u r c e sStudents Start Chapter Of SPJ At HardingIn sync with the department of communication becoming theCollege of Communication in 2008, several organizations poppedup for communication majors to join. One such club was theSociety of Professional Journalists, a nationally recognized journalismorganization.Many students were excited to take part in starting a chapter ofthe SPJ at Harding. Senior Jeremy Watson, founding member andpresident of the Harding chapter, said that it was a great resource forthose interested in journalism to get involved with their field.“There are not really many opportunities for journalism majorsor just people interested in journalism to do stuff together,except through things like the Bison [newspaper] or the Petit Jean[yearbook],” Watson said. “I was glad we were going to get thatopportunity outside of publications.”The SPJ was dedicated to encouraging the free practice ofjournalism and exhibiting a code of ethics among journalists everywhere.The organization, founded in 1909, promoted the free flowof information among the profession. With over 10,000 membersnationwide, the goal of the SPJ was to educate current journalists,as well as students preparing to go out in to the field after college.The educational benefits included discussions about the freedomof press, diversity in the field and the future of journalism as themedia world constantly changed.“Starting the Society of Professional Journalists provides studentsat Harding an opportunity to be involved in one of the mostrespected organizations throughout journalism,” Dr. Jim Miller,journalism professor and SPJ advisor, said.As a national organization, the SPJ held a national conventionevery year in which classes and seminars were provided to furthereducate journalists. Prominent speakers from the profession gavespeeches on different topics. These conventions also allowed studentsand professionals to make connections with different journalists. TheSPJ also offered contests that both students and professionals couldenter for cash prizes, scholarships and overall recognition.“By becoming a member, you get regular magazines and emailssent to you, which include valuable information [such as] job openings,internship possibilities and general information about our profession,”junior Chris O’Dell said. “It also helps set up connections forafter graduation and is a good addition to a résumé.”In order to start a chapter of the SPJ at Harding, 10 studentshad to be members of the national organization. This meant thatthey had to pay $36 dues every year. Then, they had to have anofficial advisor.“Our SPJ chapter was made possible by great leadership fromDr. Jim Miller and Jeremy Beauchamp [director of student publications],”O’Dell said. “They helped organize the meetings and toldus all about the benefits [the SPJ] provided students.”As a part of the organization, members elected officers, whowere very important to the chapter as they had to make vital decisions.Serving as president of the chapter, Watson helped work onapplying for a grant.“[The grant would] give us $500 to put together a workshop,during which we want to bring students from local high schools whoare interested in journalism to Harding for a series of classes, alongwith a keynote speaker,” Watson said. “It will be open to students atHarding as well, and some classes will be taught by students.”In addition to organizing seminars and finding speakers to come,the officers also had to make decisions concerning money for thegroup by holding fundraisers. This money would go to fund tripsthat were planned for members.One such trip took the members to the Texas coast. Not onlydid the group help out with Hurricane Ike relief, but they also gotto experience reporting, which helped set the students up for possibleexperiences they might have further down the road when outof school. They provided a voice and told stories during a time ofneed. With experiences in the field, the SPJ set itself apart by puttingthe members in hands-on situations.“There should be no question if all journalism majors should jointhe SPJ,” Miller said. “It should be how quickly they can join.”Cody Waits and Emily HauptliDactylology ClubKVHU RadioRow 1: F.

NonverbalsStudents Practice Different Forms Of CommunicationThough most students in the Ganus Building were there tolearn and practice a foreign language, a certain group ofstudents gathered every Monday evening to learn a differentkind of language — one that required no talking.The Dactylology Club was an organization on campus thattaught sign language, a form of communication vital tomillions of people worldwide. This club provided anyoneinterested the opportunity to learn sign language, or if theyalready knew it, to teach it to others.“It is just like any other foreign language,” sophomoreMalissa Taber said. “There is a group of people who use signlanguage to communicate, and if you want to be able to talkto those people, you have to learn their language.”Those involved in the club brought a variety of experience.Fluent signers and those with little or no experiencealike came in order to learn and improve their abilities.“Members bring a wide range of skill,” junior ManonJacob said. “Some have never signed before and others havehad internships as interpreters. We divide into two groupsand practice our sign language. Sometimes we tell stories orlearn hymns, but we always practice.”In addition to classroom exercises, members of the clubalso had the opportunity to attend a church where they gotto experience sign language in a real-life setting.“We went to a Deaf church in Little Rock to worship andtalk to people who completely rely on sign language,” Jacobsaid. “We got a chance to talk to many of them and find outabout their lives. It was an incredible experience.”For Jacob, learning sign language was something shehad been interested in but never got into until joining theDactylology Club.“This is my first year in the Dactylology Club, but Ihave always wanted to learn sign language,” she said. “At[College church of Christ], I always sit where I can see theinterpreter, and [I] hope that I will eventually be able to helpout a congregation someday or just be able to communicateand assist people.”Another club member, sophomore Jessie Cannon, startedlearning sign language when she was three years old and wasstill practicing and studying to become fluent.“By learning sign language we are able to communicatewith another culture, therefore developing more relationshipsand reaching out to more people,” Cannon said. “The onlydifference between Deaf people and hearing people is thatthey cannot hear. Otherwise, they are just like us, and I thinkit is important that people realize this fact.”While some learned sign language for career purposes,Jacob had other reasons for wanting to learn.“I do not plan on getting a job with sign language [but]maybe just [help] out my church back home,” she said.“Mostly I want to be able to meet and get to know people,and this is just one less boundary.”Jacob also noted the importance she saw in being ableto connect with people through sign language.“I think that it is incredibly important to be able toreach out to many who are often forgotten about,” shesaid. “There are very few people who know sign language,and the Deaf are often left out of friendly conversation andworship. I would really like to be able to communicate withthem and just make them aware that someone cares and isinterested in their life.”Rebecca HarrellStudent Speech and Hearing AssociationPetit JeanRow 1: M.

Students involved with Pied Pipers, a group that traveledand performed for children, all had at least one thingin common. They all had a passion for reaching outto the children they performed for. But two members ofthe group, married couple Brian and Sadie Bullard, held aunique position. Not only did the couple share their livesand talents with the children of other people, they wereparents themselves.Sadie and Brian, senior English and kinesiology majors,first met at Camp Wyldewood in Searcy.“Brian and I camped together at Camp Wyldewoodwhen we were little, but we didn’t really know each otherwell,” Sadie said. “When I was a senior in high school, Ivolunteered at camp the session he camped, and we gotreacquainted. We ran into each other that winter at anotheryouth rally and have talked every day since.”Six days after Sadie’s 19th birthday, the couple wasmarried.“We were married on July 29, 2006,” Sadie said. “We hada medieval [themed] wedding at Camp Wyldewood.”Before and after getting married, Sadie and Brian bothsaid they enjoyed being in Pied Pipers.“Pied Pipers is a great way to see and experience the loveof God,” Brian said. “Children have an amazing ability toshow unconditional love, and that is something we shouldtake of; it’s tons of fun.”Being a Piper also fit in with Sadie’s interest in performingand reaching out to kids.“I’ve always been interested in theater, and this is a greatway to inspire young children to be creative,” Sadie said. “Alsomany of the children we see do not get the attention theyneed at home, so we have a chance to give them positiveattention and the opportunity to use their imaginations.”In the midst of balancing life as students, a marriedB a l a n c eStudents Juggle School With Marriage, Parenthood And Pied Piperscouple and active members of Pipers, the Bullards happilyembraced a new addition to their family on Feb. 13,when their daughter, June Violet Bullard, was born. Fromthen on, “Junie” became the number one priority in theBullards’ lives.“No matter how much stuff we have due or how manyminutes we have until we are going to be late for class, Juniewill always come before school, work and Pipers,” Briansaid. “Although we have to make sacrifices for her and foreach other, it is all worth it. Junie brightens up our lives andis a great gift from God.”Sadie agreed that things changed once Junie came intothe picture, but they both enjoyed the new dimension totheir lives that being parents brought.“We have to plan things ahead of time now, but we stillhave fun,” Sadie said. “If we want to go out, we have to find asitter or take Junie with us, but Junie is such a well-manneredbaby that we don’t mind [taking] her with us. She likes to goto the movies, and we like to show her off.”Even after having Junie, the couple continued to beactive and participate in Pied Pipers. Unlike other membersof the group, they just had to make sure that their little girlwas taken care of before going to meetings.“We only have Piper practice two nights a week, andfriends and family baby-sit for us on those nights,” Brian said.“Also, we go on tours that can be up to a week long, andwhen we go on a tour, Junie stays with her grandparents.”Despite the new challenges, the Bullards continued tomake the best of each day.“Even though things are pretty hectic with being married,having a kid, going to school, working and being inPied Pipers,” Brian said, “life is good and we are makingit just fine.”Rebecca HarrellCampus PlayersPied PipersRow 1: K.

C h o i c eStudents Propose Speakers For Honors CollegeThe L.C. Sears Collegiate Seminar Series, sponsoredby Harding’s Honors College and named afterHarding’s first academic dean, began its thirdyear of seminars in the fall of 2008.The series, which began in 2005, hosted a varietyof speakers from many different backgroundsaddressing a number of topics and issues. Pastspeakers included nationally prominent Jewishleader Rabi Eliot Gertel, art historian Dr. DavidRosand and nationally prominent Muslim Dr.Nabil Bayakly. The series most recently hosted2002 Harding graduate Holly Root, who in hershort yet very successful career as a publishingagent represented authors whose books made theNew York Times best-seller list.According to the Dean of the Honors CollegeDr. Jeff Hopper, honors students helped selectanywhere from three to six speakers a year basedon relevant topics they thought would be beneficialto the student body.“The student director proposes a speaker, andunless there is a problem with that selection, werun with it,” Hopper said. “Because we have hadseveral different student directors, I try to helpmaintain continuity by suggesting balance.”Hopper said his favorite speaker so far wasRoot because she encouraged students by showingthem how much success could be achieved in sucha short time after graduation.Junior Sky Vanderburg was involved in theHonors Collegiate Seminar for the past two yearsand also served as Student Director from January2008 to May 2009. Vanderburg explained that theStudent council for Exceptional Childrenseries either featured a speaker or a set of ideas.Vanderburg said he took suggestions from his fellowstudents and then tried to select a speaker anda topic that would spark the most dialogue.“The most rewarding part of this role by far isits effect on the students in an individual sense,”Vanderburg said. “As a Christian university, Hardingis educating and training students to engagetheir world, not just a culture of the familiar. Wecannot seclude ourselves in academic or spiritualtowers and expect to remain relevant or effectivein the face of real challenges.”Vanderburg went on to say he felt the openingof hearts and minds was the goal and purpose ofthe L.C. Sears seminars.In her first year of involvement, sophomore KelseySherrod, assistant student director, helped come upwith ideas for possible topics and speakers.“I aid the director and arrange the series in caseswhere the director is unable to organize the entireevent,” Sherrod said. “[We look for] speakers whoare relatable with expertise, experience or scholarlycredentials. We also look for individuals who havea story to tell or who have an inclination towardsa timely, relevant issue.”The Honors College continued to sponsorspeakers throughout the spring semester. In itsshort time of existence, the L.C. Sears CollegiateSeminar Series exposed students, faculty and thelocal community to the opportunity to inform andchallenge themselves by listening to a diverse rangeof speakers with many different backgrounds.Zach WelchJunior Alyssa Copeland looks at the newinductee list of Kappa Delta Pi on Dec. 2 inthe Thornton Education Center.

CelebrationChinese Student Performs At FestivalWhile in many ways Harding becamehome for students during the timethey attended, for many internationalstudents like graduate student Tiana Li, it wasstill important to be able to remember andcelebrate the culture of their home countries.One organization that strove to do this wasthe Harding Chinese Students and ScholarsAssociation (HCSSA).“We want to let all the Chinese people gettogether,” Li said. “Sometimes we get homesick,so if we can be together, that helps.”As president of the association, Li had theresponsibility of organizing events that HCSSAput on and also collecting and raising moneyfrom members and outside supporters. Thebiggest event for the HCSSA was the MoonFestival, which was put on each fall and open toanyone. Included in the course of the eveningwas a meal of traditional Chinese food andperformances by some of the students.“I asked [Chinese students] if they had anytalents and if they would like to perform inthe festival,” Li said. “Most people are happyto do it.”Li was one of the performers at the festivaland executed a Kung Fu routine for thosepresent. Her talent in martial arts began longbefore coming to Harding.“In 1994, my father [made] me do [KungFu] because my health wasn’t very good, andit helped me,” Li said. “After about two weeksI started to like it. My teacher was very funnyand made it interesting.”After her start in martial arts at the ageof eight, Li attended what she called “sportschool” from age 11 to 17 which consisted ofa routine of exercising in the morning, takingfour classes during the day and training formartial arts in the afternoon and evening. Licompeted in many competitions in China andeven won several gold medals.Though she still practiced Kung Fu aftercoming to Harding, it was not as central in herlife as it was before.“I think knowledge is more important forme,” Li said. “When you go to get a job, noone will care how many medals you won inyour childhood and teenage years. It won’thelp them do their business.”Working toward her Master’s in BusinessAdministration at Harding, Li hoped to get ajob in the states to gain experience before goingback to China. Li said she enjoyed her time atHarding and meeting new friends.“Many people think [Harding] is veryconservative, but I like it,” Li said.Through her involvement in HCSSA, Liwas able to share the Chinese culture withothers on campus.“I think it’s a really good idea because wecan show Chinese culture to America and letthem know more about us,” Li said abouthaving events like the Moon festival throughHCSSA. “If you know more about each other,maybe you’ll want to build relationships andbe friends.”Emily HauptliItalian ClubAfrican Missions FellowshipRow 1: S.

involvementClaxton Participates In English ClubsDr. Michael Claxton, assistant professor ofEnglish, arrived on Harding’s campus inthe fall of 2003, straight out of his doctoralprogram at The University of North Carolina atChapel Hill and eager to teach.“The only thing I knew about Harding was thatit was a long way from Georgia,” Claxton said.Not long after his arrival, Harding alumni TimNance, a 2005 graduate, and Andrea Zahler, a 2004graduate, approached Claxton with the prospectof chartering a poetry club on campus. Thesethree poetry buffs created Souvenirs.Souvenirs was a more rowdy group than somethought. The weekly meetings in the Honors Housewere crammed with students quothing the ravenand making wisecracks about Beowulf.“I’ve been deputized by Dr. [Jeff] Hopper tokeep the chaos at a low roar,” Claxton said.Claxton was surprised that a “non-requiredpoetry event” had met for so long.“The fact that we’re still alive five or six yearslater really impresses me,” Claxton said. “We’vehad this succession of really enthusiastic poetryfans. It’s kept this club going.”While not for everyone, the audience thatattended the meetings every Thursday nightwas diverse.“It’s not limited to English majors,” Claxtonsaid. “We have art majors. We have nursingmajors. We have people from [the] foreignlanguage [department] – from all different typesof disciplines.”Claxton said Souvenirs often escaped the HonorsHouse for a day trip to an area used bookstore.They also threw Christmas parties in the winterand hosted cookouts in the spring.Claxton also spearheaded the English honorsociety Sigma Tau Delta. Club meetings wererare, but the group traveled once a year to TheRep Theater in Little Rock. Last winter theyorganized a used textbook drive through BetterWorld Books to benefit Invisible Children Inc.,a non-profit organization that assisted childrenand others coping with the civil war in northernUganda.“I think it’s important for students to be involvedin societies and groups that connect themwith other professionals in their field of study,”junior Jordan Bailey said. “I think [Dr. Claxton]does a really good job of being an overseer andkeeping things organized.”As the sponsor, Claxton was responsiblefor reciting an annual top-ten list at the Englishdepartment’s fall literary festival. Recent lists includedthe ten worst topics for senior symposia and theten worst English major pick-up lines.While Claxton was passionate about theEnglish department, he admitted that the Hardingbasketball teams threatened his allegiance tohis more literary leanings. He often attended thegirl’s game, raced over to the Honors House forSouvenirs and then returned to the Rhodes forthe second half of the boy’s game.“It’s a good time,” Claxton said. “The RhodesField House is a lot of fun.”Between poetry, book drives and basketballgames, Claxton found his niche.Nick MichaelSenior Jessica Briggs plays themoon in the Souvenirs performanceat the Literary Festival on Sept. 11, inCone Chapel.

Senior’s Hard Work And MotivationPrepare For Future CareerWhether it was performing in an orchestra, marchingin a band or playing in a quartet, senior instrumentalmusic education major Whitney Hammestook advantage of many opportunities to prepare forher future in music.Hammes was home schooled but did not let thatkeep her from taking cello lessons starting in fifth grade.She took lessons from Dr. Patricia Cox, professor ofmusic, and by seventh grade, Hammes was playing inthe Harding University/Community Orchestra.She continued looking for opportunities to play andimprove her musical skills. In the tenth grade, she feltthe need to learn how to play a wind instrument andchose the trombone. She then started playing with theHarding Academy band.“I wanted to learn a wind [instrument], but I had topractice a lot to catch up,” Hammes said. “It was hardto go from the sound of the cello to the horrible soundof learning the trombone.”During her senior year of high school, Hammesjoined the Harding Thundering Herd Marching Bandand played the trombone.After having good experiences working with studentsand professors in the music department at Harding, itmade sense for Hammes to stay in Searcy and attendHarding as a student.“Whitney is very aggressive in what she wants toaccomplish,” Dr. Mike Chance, director of the bandand orchestra, said. “She is willing to put in the time andeffort to get what she wants. She is very focused.”After graduating, Hammes planned to attendgraduate school where she could focus on the cello,and eventually teach band or orchestra to junior highor high school students.“I feel very qualified to teach either one because Iplay both a wind and string instrument,” Hammes said.“Since a typical orchestra has both winds and strings,I have the advantage of understanding and showingstudents how to play both. If I had chosen only oneinstrument, then I wouldn’t have that qualification.”Hammes felt like learning two instruments washelpful in giving her more confidence.“How you play the two is not the same, but theattitude transfers,” she said.Hammes spent the fall 2008 semester playing in thepit orchestra for the Homecoming musical “Oklahoma!”as well as being a member of the band. She was alsoa member of the Harding University String Quartet,the President of the Harding chapter of the NationalAssociation for Music Education and held a spot in thePine Bluff Symphony Orchestra. Hammes said that thisparticular orchestra was made up of professional musiciansand was one of five in the state of Arkansas.“Whitney is very dedicated, hardworking and selfmotivated,”Bethany Yarbrough, senior instrumentalmusic education minor, said. “She is always willing tohelp and down-to-earth.”In February of 2008, Hammes had the opportunityto play in the Arkansas Collegiate Band, which wascomposed of the top musicians from every universityin the state. The students chosen for this honor spentonly a few days learning music before they performedit for high school students.“Hammes is persistent about learning to be a goodcellist and musician,” Chance said. “When there werefew other string majors, she was able to be self-motivatedand not rely on other students.”Kayla StudivanString QuartetRow 1: W.

R e s c u eJazz Band Raises Money For Humane SocietyThe program featured well-known guest performers,representatives from the Humane Society of Searcy’sBarkin’ Barn thrift store and legendary songs such as“It Had to Be You” and “Embraceable You.”The Harding University Jazz Band performed a benefitconcert for the Humane Society of Searcy on November14. The Searcy High School Performing Arts Center wasfull that night as many locals came out for an evening ofgreat music to benefit a worthy cause.The Jazz Band worked on the musical selections forabout two months before the concert, but preparationsfor the concert started in January of 2008. This was thesecond benefit concert the Jazz Band performed for theHumane Society, the first being in 2006.“It was rewarding [to] partner with communityvolunteers who give their time and effort again,” JazzBand Director and Music Department Chair WarrenCasey said. “It reminded every member of the bandthat when they came to Searcy, they became part of thiscommunity. We had an opportunity to contribute herein this place, just like many other volunteers who liveand work in Searcy.”The student performers in the Jazz Band were honoredto get to play for such a wonderful cause.“Harding and its departments have always desiredto serve the Searcy community in any way that it can,”junior Tyler Morse said. “Holding a concert to benefitthe Humane Society is just one more way that Hardingcan serve and it is always nice [for] the Jazz Band [tohave] a chance to play.”The concert was titled “Where Our Boys Are” andwas performed in a 1940s live radio-show format. TheJazz Band performed big-band swing style music fromthe 1930s and ‘40s. Chicago trumpeter John Hadrabawas featured as the “Armed Forces Broadcaster” to addto the 1942 radio-show experience.The show featured three guest performers: DougScharf, a professional trumpet player from Chicago,Bob Duda, a singer from the Chicago area, and ShirleyChauvin, a jazz vocalist known throughout Texas andArkansas. The guest performers not only enhancedthe performance but also showed the students in theJazz Band how they could continue to use their talentsoutside of college.“The students got to work with the professionalmusicians that performed with us,” Casey said. “Thatexperience alone would be good, but seeing that the prosare willing to help out in a benefit performance made foran even better experience.”The concert was a huge success, raising not onlyawareness, but also financial support. The Humane Societysurely benefited from the outreach of the HardingUniversity Jazz Band.“The whole concert was a lot of fun to play,”senior Angela Withrow said. “To get to play and interactwith the guest performers was a great experience.”The most important lesson the Jazz Band gainedfrom this experience was that performing was notalways about showcasing their talents. Giving back tothe community was one of the best ways they could usetheir musical forte.“[The concert] was a way the Jazz Band at Harding[could] give back to our community in our own uniqueway,” Casey said. “We decided to use our talents in a differentway, perhaps in a way few other groups can.”Bethany LoftisJazz BandCollegiate Chapter of MENCRow 1: J.

AdventureMembers Of Chorus Spend Summer Performing In ChinaEvery two years the Harding University Chorus had the chance to singoverseas. In the summer of 2008, they traveled to China. The studentsand faculty spent time touring different cities, working with the localchurches, building ties in the community and encouraging the local ChineseChristians.The group traveled all over China from Beijing to Xian. They wereable to see many famous sites, such as the Great Wall and the ForbiddenCity. While they were in Beijing, the group also got the chance to meetstudents their own age as they toured the city.“Forming relationships with the students across China was by far thebest part about our trip to China,” senior Sarah Hackney said.The purpose of the trip was not only to have fun, but also to encouragemissionaries and local Christians in the work they were doing. It wasalso designed to give current students an opportunity to learn more aboutChina and the different possibilities to serve there.“Though it was not part of our original plan, one of the highlights ofour trip was a concert at which money was raised to benefit the victimsof the earthquake in the Sichuan province,” Dr. Cliff Ganus, director ofchoral activities, said.As with every group that traveled to a foreign country, the chorusfaced numerous challenges. From flight changes to the basic culturaldifferences, the group learned to rely on each other and on God to seethem through.One thing that set the group back was an earthquake that happenedthe day they left for China. Even though the group witnessed little physicaldamage from the earthquake, they were still affected by minor culturaland political aftershocks.“The people were shaken, and you could tell they loved their countryand their people the same way we do,” junior Brad Light said. “It madeus realize they are no different than we are. The funniest thing about ourchallenges was the way God provided us a way to be more effective thanwe would have been in the first place.”Luckily, the chorus had good hosts who helped them each time oneof these problems arose.“Our hosts helped us make alternate plans, which were even morerewarding than those that had been scheduled,” Ganus said.Many of the students who went on the trip felt it was a blessing to seea different side of Chinese people’s humanity. There were also times thatthe group used their influence and their own money to support the workgoing on to aid the people affected by the earthquake.“It was a great outreach opportunity, and we amazed many people byour caring generosity,” senior Mandy Finch said.In spite of the challenges from everyday life and the traveling thatthe group had to do, each person came home with a new lesson learned.Whether it was something about himself or herself or something aboutthe Chinese culture they never knew, everyone now had a place for Chinain their hearts.“The food was not my favorite, the traveling was very hard and plansdidn’t always work out; but God provided, and we were so blessed ourentire trip,” Hackney said. “Knowing that we had been everywhere that wasshown on the Olympics was fun; however, forming the precious relationshipswe have with those people is what will always be imprinted on myheart and mind. God is a good God, and we are so blessed.”Farron MartinConcert ChoirHU ChorusRow 1: K. Smith, C. Boyd, K. Carlon, J. Carlon, L. Kays, S. Stewart, L. Faust, K. Staley, E. Poe. Row 2: B.Smith, L.

ResponsibilityStudent Directors Take Charge For SemesterDr. Cliff Ganus, director of choral activities, usually directed theHarding Chamber Singers, a small group of fourteen singers,but while he was in Chile during the 2008 fall semester, he lefttwo capable young men to take charge of the group in his place.Brooks Gatlin, a vocal major who graduated in May of 2008,became the director of the group, and junior vocal major BradLight filled the assistant director position.“The reports I have received have been complimentary, andfrom my previous experience with Brooks and Brad, I’m confidentthat they’re doing a fine job and that the group is rehearsing andperforming well,” Ganus said. “We collaborated before I left onthe repertoire for this semester. Most of the members of thegroup are returning from last year, so I know that they knowwhat needs to be done.”Both Gatlin and Light agreed that Ganus gave them a lot offree reign to determine what the group would sing that year andwere honored with the privilege and trust they received from himto lead the Chamber Singers.“This opportunity is definitely a great ‘career move’ for me,”Gatlin said. “It will also help to prepare me for when I actuallydo have a group of my own to direct.”Gatlin said that both Light and himself sent or received ane-mail from Ganus about once a week, keeping him updated onhow things were going with the group and how they performedat concerts.“The music that they perform was picked by Dr. Ganus, butthe style and interpretation is now up to me,” Gatlin said. “I havealways loved singing with this group and following the interpretationthat Dr. G determines, but it is even more exciting to take apiece of music, determine how it should be performed and whyand then to execute that decision.”Gatlin was part of the Chamber Singers from the fall semesterof his junior year in 2006 until he graduated, so he said thatdirecting the students only a year or two younger than him wassomething he had to get use to.“One thing that has been difficult for me has been riding theline between teacher and classmate,” Gatlin said. “The role ofa student conductor is a very awkward one because only a fewmonths ago, I was part of the group as a singer, so I feel like anequal to all of the members.”Despite these obstacles, many of the members felt like Gatlinand Light were balancing their roles well.“Brooks and Brad are doing wonderfully,” senior Brian Foysaid. “Directing a group is hard enough regardless of its make-up,but directing your peers is even more difficult. They each do agreat job of laying down the law, when necessary, without lettingit go to their heads.”While not being very far removed from the student roleproved to be a challenge in many ways, it also played to Gatlin’sadvantage.“Six months ago, Brooks was on the other side of the podium,so his directions are from a fresh member’s perspective, and hecan easily see what problems will likely arise in difficult passages,”Foy said. “Thus, he’s very easy to follow.”Gatlin felt equally grateful for the members of the group andknew how essential their student leadership was.“The Chamber Singers are such a talented group that theycould almost direct themselves,” he said. “All members of thegroup can read music well and all have spent years in other choralensembles before the Chamber Singers. They honestly do makemy job much easier and make me look a lot more talented thanI really am. I am very grateful for the opportunity I have beengiven this semester.”Joseph Dickerson and Rachel KlemmerChamber SingersGood News SingersRow 1: B. Foy, P. Edmison, J. Hall, E. Harrell, M.

While Harding was seen by many as a primarilyRepublican campus, several groups on campuswere not included in this majority during the2008 election year. Supporters of Democratic candidateBarack Obama found their own voice in the midst ofa red campus.Many Obama enthusiasts joined two different groupson campus: College Democrats and Bisons for Obama.These two groups allowed supporters the chance toget to know each other through this common bond.They had a chance to come together as a minority ofDemocrats on a highly Republican campus.“Being a Democrat on a campus that is primarilyconservative Republicans can be a challenge from timeto time,” junior Stephanie O’Brian said. “We weredefinitely outnumbered, so when you saw someonewith an Obama or Democrat T-shirt or button, youwould talk because you knew you both had somethingin common.”These two groups on campus had watch partiesfor all of the debates and on election night. At thebeginning of the fall 2008 semester, the two groupsgot together to host speaker Shaun Casey. Casey wasthe head of Evangelical Affairs for Obama, and his talkpositively assured the groups that they could be both aliberal and a Christian.“College Democrats hosted Shaun Casey to helpexcite Obama supporters and to better inform Democratic,liberal and progressive students about Obama’spolicies and how they relate to Christianity,” sophomoreChris Berry said.Events like this helped Obama supporters on campusconnect and reaffirm their beliefs. Each member haddifferent reasons for believing why Obama should bethe next president.“His perseverance and message of hope are universal,”senior Karie Cross said. “I tend to vote democrat becauseV o t eStudents Show Support In Presidential Electionof the party’s humane view on things like foreign aid,diplomacy, welfare and universal health care.”Others felt that Obama could implement the propersteps to bring change.“I believe that health care is a right. The church isnot taking care of people, so the government needsto,” O’Brian said. “I also wanted change.”After Obama was elected president on November4th, the Obama supporters on campus were thrilled. Theybelieved that America had made the right choice.“Our nation took a look at where it had been,thought about what direction it wanted to go and electedBarack Hussein Obama to take us there,” Cross saidas she proudly wore her Obama button on November5. “I am so pleased that Americans are open-mindedenough to overcome his name and race.”Although Obama fans were very pleased with hisvictory, they understood the need for respect throughoutthe entire campaign season. The goal of the electionwas to find the person who would be the best leaderof our country.“Regardless of party affiliation, you need to haverespect for the other side,” Cross said. “There arealways valid arguments on both sides of every issue.Be thoughtful and prayerful and do what you think isbest, whether it is what everyone around you is doingor not. Above all, be respectful when debating anddiscussing issues.”The election season brought many differing viewpoints,countless debates and endless jokes for Saturday NightLive, but it was important to remember that politics werenot the most important thing to worry about.“I love politics, and I am passionate about them,”O’Brian said. “But I also know, as should everyone,that this world is not our home; we are just passingthrough.”Bethany LoftisAmerican Studies Distinguished StudentsCollege DemocratsRow 1: K.

Q u a l i t y T i m eHonor Society Helps Students, Teachers Grow CloserIn November of 1976, the Psi Chi NationalHonor Society for psychology majors beganon campus. It was made up of students thatwere in the upper 35% of their class, hadcompleted nine hours in psychology and hadbeen in college for at least three semesters. Inaddition to these qualifications, the membershad to maintain a minimum of a 3.0 in boththeir psychology classes and their overallgrade point average.Over the changing years, this club maintainedits original foundation and purpose,which was to encourage, stimulate and preserveexcellence in scholarship, as well as toadvance psychology as a science.Many people, especially students, consideredit a great privilege to be inductedinto Psi Chi.“I was really excited to have met thequalifications,” senior Olivia Hawkins said.“It is always an honor to be requested to bepart of a national honor society.”Hawkins and senior Lauren Cox, whoserved as president and vice president ofPsi Chi during the 2008-09 school year,both recognized the significance of beinginvolved in this organization within theirfield of study.“Psi Chi is a great organization to be a partof in terms of showing your commitmentto the field of psychology,” Cox said. “Onceinducted you are a member for life.”In addition to the longevity of membershipin Psi Chi, the club also offered studentsimmediate advantages for continuing theireducation or advancing their careers.“I joined because the nature of the organizationis to spark creativity within membersof the psychological community,” Hawkinssaid. “Graduate schools understand what anhonor this recognition is, and I knew that itwould help me further my education. Psi Chiprides itself on maintaining high standards inits scholarship, which furthers the credibilityof its name. They also offer plenty of scholarshipsto help in future research.”The functions that Psi Chi performedincluded admitting new members to theclub, holding psychological conventions andresearch award competitions and offeringopportunities to apply for scholarships andgrants to assist with research activities.In addition to all of these activities,Harding’s chapter took time to bring togetherboth the upperclassmen and underclassmenin the psychology division.“We had a psychology department cookoutthat was sponsored by Psi Chi,” Coxsaid. “We went to Dr. [Glen] Adams’ andate hamburgers and hotdogs. It was nice torelax with the professors and other studentsoutside of the classroom.”Both at Harding and across NorthAmerica, the Psi Chi honor society continuallyexpanded. Since 1929 there were over570,000 memberships placed, and it grewevery year with new inductees. Like Cox andHawkins, students felt energized to be partof a club that promised further involvementand support of its members in the field ofpsychology.Rebecca HarrellSenior Rachal Blake, president of Alpha Theta Omega,shakes hands with inductee senior Nate Moore at the inductionceremony on Oct. 20 at the Searcy Police Station.

P l a n n i n gBehind The Scenes With Corey’s Activity BoardWalking through the student center, past the social club mailboxes,Java City and Taco Bell, just beyond was the CampusActivities Board office. Although most students never enteredthrough these doors in their four plus years at Harding, CAB wasresponsible for some of the most memorable moments on campus.This student-run board hosted concerts, planned weekend movies,hosted the talent show and created other events for those who wereSearcy-bound during the weekend.While CAB was student-run, behind the organization was Directorof Campus Life Corey McEntyre, a 2007 graduate who had beeninvolved in CAB since his underclassman days.“When I was a sophomore, I really wanted to get involved withthings on campus,” McEntyre said. “Music is one of my greatestpassions, so I figured this was probably the place for me.”Besides CAB, McEntyre also was in charge of the social club programon campus, working closely with club presidents, vice presidentsand activities directors through the year.Although he kept busy, McEntyre said he loved working with CABbecause he enjoyed the students who made up the board.“I think you would imagine me saying [the best part] is hangingout with famous people, which is cool,” he said. “But I love gettingto work with different people here on campus.”McEntyre said that while working with students was great, it wasstill hard to meet everyone’s needs both on the board and in the studentbody in general. While some might have felt challenged to findthemselves dealing with students close to their own age, McEntyrefelt the lack of an age gap worked to his advantage.“I know how most of the students feel,” he said. “It wasn’t thatlong ago I was there with them. Being a little younger than my predecessorshas helped me to continue to relate to students and be ableto listen to them a little better because I understand where they arecoming from.”The former Director of Campus Life, Assistant Dean of StudentsZach Neal, also felt that McEntyre’s age was beneficial to this job.“Having worked as the Director of Campus Life previous to thisposition, I can say from experience that it is good to have a close relationshipwith the student body,” Neal said. “Corey faced the challengeof making the transition from student director to Director. He hasdone a great job and really has his finger on the pulse of the wantsand interests of the students.”While relating to students was a goal for McEntyre, the biggesttask was bringing in performers and planning events that studentswould enjoy and attend.“One of my intentions was to always bring quality performers andmake sure that students do like them,” he said.McEntyre said his favorite concert was a tie between Sara Bareillesand Jon McLaughlin, saying both were amazing musicians.Besides CAB, McEntyre was also an avid cook, musician and worldtraveler. His future, though, he left in God’s hands.“I try to leave my options open for the most part,” he said. “Ilove being here and want to continue this until I feel like it’s my timeto go.”Katie RamirezClass OfficersStudent AssociationRow 1: R.

E x p e r i m e n tGedanken Gives Research Presentations at ConferenceIn the fall of 2008 nine members of The Gedanken Societyscience club got the chance to participate in the SouthwesternRegional Meeting of the American Chemical Society. TheGedanken Society, a student affiliate chapter of the AmericanChemical Society, was an open-membership club to anyoneinterested in chemistry. The regional meeting took place inLittle Rock on October 3, and allowed students to presentresearch they worked on during the course of the semester.Three people from the club presented research in anoral presentation, and the others presented their research onposters. According to acting club president and senior TaylorHendrixson, seven students presented their research on posters,and senior Greg Lyons won third prize for the researchdone in his category. Hendrixson said his own research wasconducted with grant money from NASA.“My research was building a Raman spectrometer,” Hendrixsonsaid. “This is an instrument that can be used to determinethe identity of unknown chemical substances. I’m working witha high power laser in this instrument.”Hendrixson said his involvement in Gedanken and undergraduateresearch exposed him to many opportunities andwould help him reach his goals.“I plan on attending medical school next fall,” Hendrixsonsaid. “Research in any science-related field is vital, and Ihope to be active in research while attending medical schoolbecause it allows me to learn more about things [in which] Iam interested.”The club treasurer, senior and first year member SethColeman, said he had the opportunity to present his researchon the sun as a light source. Coleman, who also planned onattending medical school, said similar techniques might beapplied on the surface of Mars to determine its atmosphericcomponents.“The idea then is to analyze the peaks and determine whatcompounds in our atmosphere were absorbing the sunlight,”Coleman said. “I was only able to confidently show water andoxygen so far.”Coleman said he felt the conference was a positive andsuccessful trip for all those who participated this year.“We received some compliments concerning our posters,so I think we all left feeling we were successful overall,”Coleman said. “The trip helped me to see the dedication andhard work that is required by anyone to succeed in whatevercareer path they choose.”Senior Megan Bush agreed that the trip was a success anda great learning experience. Bush said she gave a presentationon the flame emission of hybrid rocket plumes.“The trip gave us an opportunity to hear talks from studentsand faculty members from around the state,” Bush said.“It provided an opportunity to share our research with thescientific community and gave us experience with speakingto our peers.”Bush said she enjoyed her time in the club and the failuresand successes that came with research. The Gedanken Societygave members the opportunity to further their research andprovide themselves with valuable experience and opportunitiesthroughout their careers.Zach WelchFlying BisonPi Kappa DeltaRow 1: N.

D e a l e r sA Future Of Distributing Legal DrugsStanding out among the crowd in one’s profession was difficultat times. With piles of résumés to look through, admissionoffices of medical schools continued to see the same thing— students with a high GPA and a passion for medicine.That was what sophomore Brandon Rhoads discovered at hissummer internship at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in NorthLittle Rock. He realized Harding needed to help pre-pharmacystudents stand out from the rest.Rhoads spent most of his summer getting good workexperience. Every day he received medicine check lists for eachpatient for half the wards in the hospital.“My job at the VA hospital was simply stocking medicinesand delivering them to hospital wards daily,” Rhoads said.When he had downtime on the job, he searched differentpre-doctor student web sites and saw what many of the collegesof pharmacy were looking for in their future students.That was when he realized there was more to getting acceptedthan just good grades.“The types of things I saw were experience, involvementin community and school, GPA and of course your PCATscore,” Rhoads said. “I also saw that many students were inpharmacy clubs, so I began to look into those.”The rest of Rhoad’s summer was spent contacting Hardingprofessors and formulating ideas for a pharmacy club atHarding. He started out by contacting Dr. Richard Duke andjoining the Health Science Club.“After joining, I had some ideas for a specialized club madespecifically for pre-pharmacy students since Harding had justopened our own pharmacy school,” Rhoads said.He then used his free time outside of his internship toconverse with Dr. David Cole, the Chemistry Chair and HealthScience Club advisor, and another pharmacy student, sophomoreCorey Baber. Together they made the club constitutionand formed the foundations of the club. Rhoads and Baberthen went to Harding’s Summer Experience to share their ideaswith the incoming pre-pharmacy students.The Pre-Pharmacy Club was designed to give students asmuch information as possible about what it took to get intopharmacy school. Rhoads and Baber, along with sophomoreBK Mthongana, vice president of the club, and freshman JessicaKnoske, made binders with pharmaceutical information andinformation about different pharmacy schools. The club alsoworked on getting some volunteer experience at White Countyand River City Ministry clinics for its members.“Through the club we’ve talked to hospitals and otherplaces with pharmacies about helping our members get someexperience,” Mthongana said.At each meeting, Rhoads and Mthongana lined up a guestspeaker to speak to the club. Speakers included Julie Hixon-Wallace, dean of Harding College of Pharmacy, Jane Gault,director of the VA Hospitals in Pharmacy, Todd Brackins fromLilly Research and Sales, and Jake Blair, a graduate student atHarding’s College of Pharmacy.“Being in this club gives us a chance to hear from speakersall around Arkansas, which gives us more of an insight into thepharmacy field,” sophomore Kim Hang said.Listening to speakers was not the only thing the meetingsentailed. Each month, a different member made a presentation.“[At each meeting] we also have a drug of the month,”Mthongana said. “Someone in the club presents a medical drugthat they or their family have been affected by.”The club’s main purpose was to provide students withexperience in the field of pharmacy so they would stand outamong all the other pre-pharmacy students.“I have learned so much that I can apply to my futurecareer,” sophomore Kinyata Gray, secretary of the club, said.“Serving as secretary has also been great because it’s helpingme become a professional.”The Pre-Pharmacy Club met the first Thursday of everymonth. Not only was this a great time for the members tolisten to professionals and learn about new medicines, butalso for them to commiserate on their classes and homework.Once a month was not very often for a club to meet, but thesepre-pharmacy students carried a heavy course load. Thoughtheir time was sparse, most would agree it was worth the extratime spent.“The Pre-Pharmacy Club has greatly influenced my knowledgeabout the career of pharmacy as a whole,” Gray said.Katie FittzDietetics ClubStudent Nurse Association OfficersRow 1: K.

GivingJoy Club Helps Community Through ServiceFor many people the word joy meant happiness,delight, pleasure or bliss. The members of theJOY club knew it as “Jesus, Others, Yourself.”Senior Ashley Roberts, who served as presidentof the club, said this group consisted of womendedicated to doing God’s service by serving othersin the community.“It has always been a pretty small group, but itwas intimate,” Roberts said. “Our numbers are biggerthan they used to be, which is great.”Roberts said the group met once a month and alwaystried to have a guest speaker. Speakers at these meetingswere usually women from the community sharingabout themselves and opportunities to serve.“Their talk usually acts as our devo, and then wedo a service project afterwards,” Roberts said.The JOY club strove to affect the community as awhole through their service to individuals or specificgroups. Senior Darla Yates said they had many opportunitiesto provide joy in other people’s lives.“Every year we put on an Easter egg hunt, whichis our big project of the year, but we also do smallerprojects,” she said. “We made snacks for kids at HopeCottage, which is a shelter for abused women andchildren, and provided a Thanksgiving meal to twofamilies in Searcy. We also helped the Rock Housewith ‘Trunk or Treat’ over Halloween.”The JOY club offered its members a way to jointogether and exhibit a shared passion for servingothers.“When I saw the flyer to be a part of the JOYclub and went to the meeting, I fell in love with it,”Yates said. “It was a time to fellowship with God,meet new girls and do a service project to help others.Plus, I didn’t have to pay dues. I quickly knew that itwas the club for me.”The spirit of servanthood among the girls in thegroup drew people to the club. It also offered eitheran addition or alternative to being a part of a regularsocial club. Unlike many other social clubs wheredues, T-shirts and functions could end up costing alot of money, the JOY club was free of cost with theexception of a canned good here and there.At Thanksgiving, each member was asked to bringa canned good to the next meeting to help feed aneedy family in the area.“We had such an overwhelming response from themembers that we were actually able to provide twohuge baskets of food, which went to two families inthe area to make their Thanksgiving just a little morememorable,” Roberts said. “We also made Thanksgivingcards for children around the area.”Yates said when she had the opportunity to serveGod and others, she felt refreshed and like a bigweight had been lifted off her shoulders.The members of the JOY club were not only asuccessful means of spreading joy in the lives of peoplein the community, but they also had the benefit ofreceiving joy themselves through the work they didfor the sake of Jesus first, and others second.Allison WeaverJoy ClubJESUS ProjectRow 1: K.

Gibsonrepresented Chi Omega Pi social club andwas a member of Alpha Chi, Who’s Whoand the American Studies DistinguishedStudents. Craig RainboltWhen Alpha Chi member senior Jacque Breuer arrived on campusher freshman year, she hardly knew anyone. But after being apart of the Harding community for four years, Breuer cameto know many people through her involvement in an assortment ofcampus activities.“Harding was a huge blessing,” Breuer said. “I love chapel, and Idon’t mind the rules; the beautiful family and relationships we havehere make it worth the cost.”Breuer made it an essential part of her Harding career to be involvedin many different things and to get to know a variety of peoplethrough these activities. Breuer kept busy by taking part in theatricalproductions such as “The Wizard of Oz,” “Oklahoma!” and “TheJungle Book,” and being Honors Council president, a member of ChiOmega Pi social club and a Spring Sing director.“Having a huge to-do list has taught me time management,”Breuer said. “There is not time to procrastinate.”Being involved in a variety of campus activities allowed Breuerto interact with many different types of people. As president of theHonors Council, she got acquainted with freshmen, and being inplays introduced her to those involved in music and theater. As amarketing and Bible major, she was exposed to even more groupsof people.“It is such a blessing to be able to go anywhere on campus and seepeople I know,” Breuer said. “Different activities allow me to know alot of people that I would not know if I was not involved.”Breuer was also an encouragement and good example to herfriends and fellow students.“I have always been impressed with Jacque’s dedication to Godand her involvement in school activities,” senior Ashton Reely said.“She has been a great spiritual leader in Chi Omega Pi, and I knowBlessingsAlpha Chi Member Grateful For Opportunitiesthat through her constant interaction with people she is influencingeveryone she comes in contact with.”Breuer said she felt like her semester at Harding University inFlorence had the biggest impact on her during her time at Harding.“I learned to make a family where I am,” she said. “Now when Isee a map of Europe it is a real place. I learned so much [from] beingin a different environment and culture; I couldn’t help comingback changed. HUF teaches independence and how to interact withpeople of all languages and cultures.”Breuer was in Spring Sing her freshman year and returned as adirector for her club’s show the next year. She said one of the difficultiesof this role was learning to work with people from the authoritativeposition while maintaining relationships.“Even when you are not sure how to do something, it can bedone, and you can make it be successful,” Breuer said.Another part of Breuer’s life was Flaming Pine Youth Camp inTogo, Minn., where she worked every summer between the years sheattended Harding.“It is rewarding to see the transition campers go through,” Breuersaid. “Even though church camp is not a realistic setting, it is criticalfor kids’ development since it is a rare chance to show them whatChristian fellowship looks like.”Breuer planned to graduate in May of 2009, and lead a six-weekcampaign to New Zealand and then move to Africa to teach missionaries’children for nine months.“The most beautiful part of Christianity is that no matter wherewe go in the world, we have a family,” Breuer said, “and it does notmatter if we can communicate or see each other regularly.”Kayla Studivan242 organizations

Noah DarnellSenior Alexandra Loan attends aRegina officer meeting in the Pryor-England Science Center Feb. 23. Loanserved as the devotional director forher social club. Nick MichaelJugglingWho’s Who Member Learns PrioritiesFor nomination into the national organization Who’s Who Among Students,an honor limited to juniors and seniors, there were three characteristicsthat Harding faculty paid attention to when considering students torecommend: character, leadership and GPA. As a Who’s Who nominee,senior Alexandra Loan was one student who distinguished herself in hercollege career through her involvement and leadership in many extracurricularactivities and high performance as a student.Majoring in psychology and English with a double minor in Spanishand Bible, Loan balanced a heavy course load with her involvement innine different organizations ranging from social and academic clubs tovolunteer groups. Loan became a master of planning her time around allher different obligations.“It’s a very careful juggling act; I try to prioritize,” Loan said. “Thereis no magic formula.”Loan’s responsibilities varied from serving as devotional director forRegina social club to working with a wider group of students and facultythrough the Academic Integrity Committee to revise academic integritypolicies on campus or serving on the leadership committee of ChristiansIn Action.“All of these have really helped expose me to a wide variety of experiencesand leadership opportunities,” Loan said. “In each organization,I’ve been able to work with numerous people from whom I’ve learned alot and been able to grow a lot through them personally, spiritually andacademically.”Loan’s professors noticed her ability to continue doing well in theclassroom in addition to all of her outside responsibilities.“She is really enthusiastic and intelligent and makes a lot of commentsthat are insightful,” Dr. Larry Hunt, associate professor of English, said.“She’s just a really hard worker. All of this extra stuff hasn’t affectedher work with me at all.”Loan’s demonstrated example of character and leadership as a hardworkingstudent was what earned her the distinguished recognition asa nominee for Who’s Who. Dr. Butch Gardner, who was in charge ofHarding’s chapter of the organization, noted that this honor also heldvalue as a beneficial addition to students’ résumés.“Students recognize that [benefit] and follow through when a teacherwants to nominate them,” Gardner said.Inevitably, Loan had to devote a lot of personal time to the organizationsshe was committed to; however, she said she still felt that thesacrifice was worth it.“I’ve been lucky to have a lot of friends involved in the same organizationsthat I [am], but there are times when school and my otherresponsibilities swamp me and completely destroy my social life for daysor weeks,” Loan said. “Ultimately [though], I very much enjoy what Ido, and while I sometimes regret not being able to just hang out withfriends, I still wouldn’t change much if I had to do it again.”Christie Cronk and Emily Hauptliwho’s who 245

a day in the parkShantih holds service project functionThe ladies of Shantih social club brought a new idea tolight when they merged service projects and functions.Typically, clubs kept these two activities separate, butthese ladies decided that did not always have to be the case.Shantih’s first experience with combining a service projectand function happened a few years ago when they had their“Bowling for Soup” function.“We decided to combine a bowling function with a cannedfood drive,” senior Kristi Kridlo, president of Shantih, said.“In order to participate in the bowling, you had to bring atleast two canned food items for the can drive.On Oct. 11, the members of Shantih had their secondfunction with the purpose of serving others while still spendingtime together as a club. The function/service project wassuggested by Shantih’s activities director, senior Katie Parker,who thought it would be a good idea to do a function forothers, not just themselves.The service aspect of the function was for the club tointeract with children from Searcy Children’s Home and localfoster children. Members played games, tie-dyed shirts andate pizza with the children.“One of our sponsors, Penny McGlawn, used to be themom at the Searcy Children’s [Home] and I thought we coulduse that resource [to] reach out to the community and havea great time,” Parker said.The parents involved were very appreciative of the cluband their efforts in providing activities to the children.“It was a way that foster parents could get a little breakand a way [for us] to reach out to the children and show themsome of the love they may miss out on in their normal dayto-daylife, “ senior Farron Martin said.Martin said they were trying to do as many service projectsas they could to benefit people from the community andkeep Shantih aware of what they were really supposed to befocused on, which was God’s work.“The purpose of our club is service and love,” Parker said.“We think that is very important to be of service to others,and we focus a lot on that.”By adding service project elements, Shantih redefined themeaning and purpose of functions.“A function is a great time to bond with your sisters,but there are more important things,” Kirdlo said. “Thereis nothing like a smile of a young child, and we got a bunchof smiles that day.”Allison Weaver252 social clubs

fun on the sidelinesbeaux coach and queens cheer in club sportsAbig part of the social club experience at Harding wasbeing involved in club sports, not only for the members,but also for the club’s beaux or queens. In addition tobeing overall supporters for the clubs they belonged to, beauxand queens often took roles as coaches and cheerleaders fortheir clubs’ athletic teams.For junior Delta Gamma Rho beau Jay McCoy, coachingwent beyond just showing up on game day.“We held a few practices, drew up plays beforehand andmade arm bands with the plays on them [for the girls],” hesaid.McCoy said his favorite thing about coaching was seeingthe girls get as passionate about the game as he and theother beaux did.“I just try to let them have a good time,” McCoy said. “It’sfun to get serious and what not, but in the end I just wantgirls to enjoy playing regardless of the outcome.”As a participant in club sports and also athletic directorfor Pi Theta Phi, junior Julya Bentley acknowledged how niceit was to have beaux helping out with the sports.“My favorite thing about the beaux is their involvementwith club sports,” Bentley said. “Our beaux always areour base coaches in softball, [and] it is always helpful andencouraging to know that once I hit that ball I will have abeau waiting for me at first [base] to tell me whether or notto keep running.”While queens did not help coach in club athletics, their presenceat games was just as important for bringing support andencouragement to the guys in the club they represented.“We bring posters and snacks, like popcorn and sunflowerseeds,” sophomore Beta Omega Chi queen Lindleigh Whetstonesaid. “We are basically the cheerleaders at the games,and I try to get the crowd involved.”Inevitably there were times during games that becameheated on the court or field between club teams, and thequeens were also helpful in calming the guys down.“During games when the guys are at their breaking pointabout to burst out I usually go down to where they are andremind them to keep their good attitudes,” Whetstone said.“The members [of BOX] really try to focus on maintainingChrist-like attitudes throughout the game, and they do agreat job.”Both beaux and queens enjoyed the roles they played eitheras coaches or supporters from the stands, but the honor toserve a club as a beau or a queen also went beyond sports.“It’s an honor being a beau,” Ju Go Ju beau juniorBrandon Johnson said. “I like to help the girls if they aren’tfamiliar with the sport. My sister and girlfriend and a lot ofmy friends are in the club, so it’s fun to interact with themand goof around.”Emily Hauptliathletics/queens & beaux 257

mixing it upmaking friends at traditional activitiesSocial clubs were primarily built on the traditions set byfounding club members years ago. These traditions includedclub songs and hymns, a motto for the men and womenof the social club to stand by, a club verse or even a club salute.But during the month of September, most clubs were preparingfor the club process that was beginning and planning thetraditional mixers that their club was known for. These mixerswere a way for the club to showcase their values and heritageto potential members.From Pi Theta Phi’s Black and White Mixer to Alpha TauEpsilon’s “Office Space” Mixer, the themes varied as much asthe clubs. Some clubs required people to dress up and competefor the best costume. Others were more simple and focused onlearning about prospective members through conversation. Thetraditional mixers often stood out the most in students’ minds.“One of our traditional mixers is our Pajamarama andcookie dough mixer,” senior Delta Gamma Rho member KatieCopeland said. “If it isn’t a favorite for our club, then it isone that everyone looks forward to, probably just because youget to hang out with a bunch of girls in your pajamas and eatcookie dough. This mixer has become a tradition for our cluband continues to be a mixer that people have come to know asa usual for our club to do.”Traditional mixers allowed the old members to look back andremember their own experiences, as well as to meet people thatwere just as interested in sharing those experiences.“[Members] are able to reflect on that same mixer and rememberwhat they once went through during the [induction] process,”senior Marci Blackshear, Pi Theta Phi member, said.These mixers were often viewed as just as important, if notmore so, to the members. If mixers were no longer a part ofthe recruiting process, many members would be upset. Thetraditional mixers were particularly special because each onedefined the club’s personality.“[The mixer] ties into our number one rule ‘Always, Alwaysact like a Lady,’ and an elegant night makes everyone feel likea lady,” junior Tori Dobbs, a Ju Go Ju member, said of TheBlack Mixer.Some clubs made their mixers more formal and dressy,while others simply dressed in their club colors or were morelaid-back.“The Orange Crush Mixer is important because that’s somethingwe’re known for,” senior Whitney Norris said of the Shantihmixer. “We’re known for our ‘Orange Crushes’ during club week,so it gives us a way to incorporate it into our mixers.”Senior Garrett Sheumaker, president of Alpha Tau Epsilon,said the club’s third-round Toga Mixer was one of their traditionalmixers. Held in the Administration Auditorium, the mixer allowedcurrent and prospective members to dress up in togas and drinkroot beer, and it was very popular among members.“It’s the best mixer to be able to sit down and just really getto know new members,” Sheumaker said.Club members viewed the mixers as a success because theybrought the old members together and provided a bond thateach could be proud of while bridging the gap between oldand new members.Farron Martin262 social clubs

new kind of familybig sisters, big brothers and inducteesThe student center was packed with new members whowere excited about the prospect of getting into a clubwhile frantically trying to get signatures. However as theweek went on, stresses began to build for both new and oldmembers as countless hours were put into club week activities.In light of this, many clubs assigned big brothers and bigsisters to new members to help alleviate as much of the stressas possible.“I’m glad we have big brothers,” freshman and new TNTmember Mitchell Carter said. “One of my big brothers boughtme Chick-fil-A one afternoon and made me eat it because Ididn’t eat much all week.”Senior OEGE president Vanessa Borsheim said she reallyenjoyed having a little sister during club week. Borsheim describeda big sister as being a support system throughout club week.“It was important to us that our girls knew if there was anythingthey needed throughout the week that they had someonethey could [turn] to,” Borsheim said. “It was also good becausethe new [members] learned how to communicate with the restof the club.”Graduate student Jake Blair, president of men’s social clubGamma Sigma Phi, said his club dedicated about 15 minuteseach night for big brother and little brother time. He said thenew members were allowed to ask questions about the week,and then they prayed together. Blair said his club also shookthings up by trying something they had never done before. Whileeating dinner, the big and little brother groups were to witnessto people they encountered at the restaurants.“We broke up into big brother groups, and each of theolder members took their little brother to a fast food place andbought them dinner,” Blair said. “The goal was to practice raw,spreading of the Gospel by trying to talk to someone aboutJesus. I think it turned out really well.”Junior Rachel Geddie, a member of women’s club Pi ThetaPhi, said that each of the old members was assigned one or twonew members as little sisters. Geddie said big sisters would buygifts throughout the week to help brighten spirits and encouragetheir little sisters.“One of the best parts about being a big sister is you get thechance to become really close with your little sister,” Geddie said.“It creates a strong bond and makes you automatic friends.”Chi Omega Pi member junior Mallory Thompson said thenew and old members in her club received a clue on a piece ofpaper linking the little and big sister together. Thompson said sheand her little sister formed an instant connection, and they madeplans to hang out after club week even before it was over.“My big sister was so encouraging to me; she would alwaysmake sure I was doing OK, and it was so uplifting,” Thompsonsaid. “Now I look forward every year to being a big sister so Ican give back to someone else what she gave to me.”While club week was tough at times, the efforts made byolder members to encourage the new members made a greatimpact. Many felt that the friendships formed through beinga big brother or a big sister were friendships that would last alifetime.Zach Welchclub week 265

OK, how about $7?$7, good, now guys, remember this is for a date and dinner.$8, we’ve got eight, nine, ten, $11, $11 for this basket withdinner for two, eleven going once, going twice, and GONE,”auctioneer Dr. David Burks said.Those were the words that Dr. Burks exclaimed, encouragingguys to bid higher and higher as he played auctioneer for theday on behalf of Ju Go Ju and Ko Jo Kai social clubs for theirfundraiser held on Nov. 6 on the front lawn. It was an afternoonfilled with fun and excitement as basket bidding, baked goodsselling, great food eating and live music playing took place.One of Ju Go Ju’s service project directors said they wantedto do a service project with another club, and the serviceproject director from Ko Jo Kai suggested the idea of theBasket Bid.“We had the idea of selling dinner baskets to people whowere willing to buy them, “ junior Ju Go Ju member AnnaReynolds said.Members from each club donated baskets with a meal fortwo. The baskets were then auctioned off, and the winner wasrewarded with having dinner on the front lawn with the personthat made the basket.To set the mood, juniors Joel Blake, Jason Wood, BlakeCobb, Donna Dority, Andy Dean and Brandon Johnson playedan acoustic set while the fundraiser took place. A few songsthey played were “Seven Bridges Road” by the Eagles, “TheScientist” by Coldplay, “Your Guardian Angel” by Red JumpsuitApparatus and “You and Me” by Lifehouse.“The band chose an acoustic set for a chill atmosphere thatwas fun to hang out and eat the food that was being auctionedoff,” Ju Go Ju service project director senior April Augsburgersaid.Senior Austin Click, who was a two-basket buyer, said hethought the music was a nice touch to the evening.The turnout from the first-time event was better than theclubs’ service project directors had anticipated.“We had an excellent response from the girls in our clubwanting to help out and participate in any way they could,”senior Ko Jo Kai member Lara Haynes said. “The participationfrom our two clubs was incredible! Although we did what wecould to get other people to attend, I wish a few more peoplehad shown up to bid on the baskets. They really missed out onsome good food!”Overall, both clubs said the event was a success, raising atotal of $507. Ju Go Ju and Ko Jo Kai split the total and donatedtheir halves to the charity of their choice. Ko Jo Kai gave theirdonation to the Sunshine School, and Ju Go Ju gave to their“Our Kristen Foundation,” which helps financially supportfamilies who have unexpectedly lost children.“Our girls put a lot of creativity into the baskets, and theyhad a lot of fun at the event,” Haynes said. “It was almost likea function in some ways, but as a bonus, it raised money for twogreat causes.

no girls allowedgrowing closer as brothersSocial club functions were one of the many perks of joininga social club, giving attendees a chance to spend timewith other club members, enjoy the company of theirdates and get a new T-shirt. The annual TNT Stag functionwas a unique all-guys retreat that provided time for the menof TNT to spend time together as club brothers.“I love this function,” senior Peter Snell said. “As president,it is very important to me that we become closer as a clubthan we have ever been in the past. Whenever we have Stag,it reminds me of the reason I am in TNT and the importanceof those relationships to me.”In the fall of 2008, the function took place Sunday, Oct. 12at Camp Tahkodah. This four-hour event included a worshipservice, cookout, ultimate Frisbee, swimming, basketball andmany other activities.During the worship service, members broke up into smallgroups for communion. They split up into groups of five orsix and found a secluded place to share the Lord’s Supperand talk about struggles, blessings or any other issues theyhad on their minds.“It is a really great opportunity to learn more about eachother and promote Christian unity rather than just clubunity,” Snell said.Senior and club vice president Greg Moore agreed thatthe event was a big hit among the club’s members.“It is very encouraging to have friends in your club thatwill always be there for you,” he said.After the period of devotion was over, there was a largegame of Ultimate Frisbee while lunch was prepared by clubqueens and one of the sponsors.After enjoying hamburgers and all the fixings, the guysbegan their afternoon of fun and relaxation. They spent therest of the day swimming and playing on the rope swing.“I believe it is just a great time where guys can come backto school and for one afternoon, not worry about anything buthaving a good time,” Moore said. “I think that is extremelyimportant. Coming out to Stag brings us closer as a club. Ihave always felt [that] the more we do together as a club, thecloser we will become.”Not bringing dates to this function helped the clubmembers focus on their friendships within the club, not justentertaining their dates. Without girls, there was no one toimpress and the guys could just be themselves.“You get to play sports and be crazy and bond in a waythat you wouldn’t if girls were around,” junior Brian Lancastersaid. “All insecurities are thrown out the window. For example,[senior] James Piccino will get out there in a canoe and rowand have fun, and he never does that with girls.”The tradition of this function was very important to all ofthe members of TNT.

laying a foundationFreshman runner begins career strong with two national championshipsDuring his high school years in Kenya, sophomore Daniel Kirwa’sfocus was on two things: running and his studies. After graduating,he came to Harding to run on the track team. In his firstseason competing last spring, Kirwa not only qualified for Nationals,but he also came away with the title of national champion.Though Kirwa’s quick success on the track made these accomplishmentslook easy, he was quick to note the difficulty of such feats.“Sometimes the body’s not willing but the spirit is willing and says,‘let’s go,’ ” Kirwa said. “That is the mark of a real champion.”Kirwa understood the dedication and perseverance it took toaccomplish what he did. “No pain, no reward” was what he and histeammates would tell one another to help motivate each other. Trackand Cross Country Coach Steve Guymon, too, was always pushinghim to be better.“Daniel wasn’t eligible his first year here, so it was difficult to notparticipate and still stay motivated,” Guymon said. “He wasn’t goingafter any meets or championships, but he still stayed focused.”Despite these challenges, Kirwa still found motivation withinhimself.“I encouraged him at practice, but he’s highly self-motivated,”Guymon said. “As he became eligible [to compete], he gained moreconfidence as he began winning.”Kirwa underwent difficult training throughout the 2008 season toprepare for nationals. The team ran up to three times a day, dependingon when their next competition was, and also lifted weights inthe gym. Kirwa said the competition at invitational meets was like“pre-nationals” and helped prepare him mentally for what was tocome. He attributed his coach and teammates for helping him staycalm during events.While many qualifiers ran only single events, Kirwa ran in boththe 5K where he took second place, and the 10K, where he won bya margin of almost 10 seconds. Those races put him at over 50 lapson a 400-meter track in three days. Kirwa reveled in his experienceat nationals and was encouraged by the support of his teammatesand coach.“Daniel’s confidence and maturity level have improved a lot,”Guymon said. “When you’re that good that early, you have to dealwith a lot of things at once. He’s still learning about racing and gettingsmarter. He works hard in practice and knows when to really pushit come race time.”Kirwa’s rise as a national champion was not an easy one. He gavecredit to God for giving him strength, to his coach who helped himprepare physically and mentally, to his teammates who were always pushingand motivating him and to his family and friends for their prayers.Earning the title of national champion meant a lot to Kirwa.“It makes you want more,” he said. “It is a big accomplishmentthat we as runners dream about.”Joseph Dickerson and Rachel KlemmerJunior Alexandra Hurst hands-off the batonto sophomore Dia Gibson in a relay run atthe Bison Invitational April 5, 2008.

Ask that question to seniors Marco Ruiz and OlzhasTaniyev and they would most certainly take you up on that offer.Both Ruiz and Taniyev were selected to the All-Conference teamlast season through their hard work and ability on the tennis court. Theyalso joined the rest of the team in representing Harding at the Gulf SouthConference Tournament in Montgomery, Ala., and at the National Tournamentin Pensacola, Fla.Before reaching the GSC and National Tournaments last spring, the tennisteam got off to a good start in the regular season that included a remarkable15-match winning streak.Men’s tennis Coach David Elliott described both Ruiz and Taniyev asextremely hard-workers and team leaders.“They have a very positive effect on the team,” Elliott said. “Their attitudesand intensity levels are contagious.”While the team benefited from the great examples that its top two players exhibited,Taniyev was quick to recognize the efforts from all of the players.“The rest of the team did so much,” Taniyev said. “Every memberworked really hard and showed so much support to each other, and that iswhat is really important.”This positive attitude and work ethic greatly helped toward the team’sprogress in the post season. The tennis team hadconsistently made it to the GSC and NationalTournaments since the university became DivisionII. Elliott attributed these successes to thequalities of the players.“We’ve had a good tradition here [at Harding]in tennis,” Elliott said. “I think our character isabove the norm at the college level.”Going into these postseason tournaments,Elliott said their aim was simply to be the bestthat they could be.“The only thing we can control is ourselvesand then try to perform [the best that we can]when we get there,” Elliott said.Both Ruiz and Taniyev led the way towardthis goal. With the team behind them and Elliottmentoring and building the young players up, theywere able to succeed and advance to the NationalTournament. There, they faced one of the bestschools in the nation, West Florida. Thoughunsuccessful, they came away with a sense ofpride and hard work.“We try so hard to peak at the end of the yearand I feel like I played my best at the tournament,”Taniyev said.The conclusion to an overall successful 2008season, while satisfying in many ways, also madeboth Ruiz and Taniyev anticipate continuing theirprogress in the next season.“I am really excited about this next season,because in my opinion we have a more solid teamthan we did last year,” said Ruiz.Cody Waitsmen’s tennis 279


Many students felt confined by Searcy’s small-town atmosphere,especially with such slim-pickings for weekend entertainment.For May graduate Karina Swindle, formerly Gomes, however,experiencing feelings of culture shock was justified.Swindle came to Harding in 2004 from Sao Paulo, Brazil, a city withover 10 million people, making it larger than New York City. Why didthis student make the leap to a town of 19,000 people? Swindle wantedto play on the tennis team.But the population of Searcy and Sao Paulo was not the only differencefor Swindle.“In Searcy, you are a lot more exposed to Christianity and churches,”Swindle said. “Sao Paulo, on the other hand, is too busy to care aboutthe Bible or God.”As Swindle settled into Harding, she said she began to ask questionsabout Christianity.“I was never really introduced to any religion before coming toHarding,” Swindle said. “The only thing I can remember growing up isthat my dad would make me and my brother watch biblical movies. Myfamily never prayed before meals, [but] they always taught us to pray byourselves in our room before going to bed.”After being at Harding and taking two years of Bible classes, Swindlewanted to be baptized.“Dr. [Joe] Brumfield, who is my favorite Bible teacher at Harding,baptized me on my birthday three years ago,” Swindle remembered.Soon after her baptism, Swindle began teaching about Christianityto her family. Her mother and brother were later converted.“[It was] one of the happiest days of my life,” Swindle said. “I lovethe fact that I can already picture my whole family in Heaven one day.”In addition to sharing her faith with her family, she was also a spiritualencouragement to her tennis family.“Karina has always been a great Christian example to our team, andthat is so important and needed for us,” senior Alicia Williams said.“Karina, as any other Christian, is not foreign to obstacles in life, buther faith in Christ has led her to many victories through trials, not onlytrials in life, but trials that led to victories on the tennis court, as well.[She] is a true champion in all aspects of the word, and she has made adifference on our team that will not be forgotten!”Swindle not only motivated her team, but also found motivationfrom within.“There was a lot more pressure playing tennis back home because Ididn’t play on a team, so it was more about me as an individual,” Swindlesaid. “Contributing to the Harding team made the game more fun andmotivated me to give 100 percent because it was about something biggerthan me.”Swindle went to regionals and nationals four years in a row andacquired many Gulf South Conference honors. She was also the firstHarding tennis player to win Freshman Player of the Year.“A huge highlight for me was when we beat one of our biggest rivals,UCA, because we had lost to them so many times before,” Swindle saidof one of her most memorable career moments.Swindle graduated from Harding in the spring of 2008 and went onto work as a graduate assistant to the tennis team. She began to completeher masters in education with an emphasis in kinesiology, hoping that amaster’s would make it easier for her to find a job as a tennis coach.Through her time at Harding, Swindle felt that she changed in manyways.“I am now a lot more mature and have lived so many good experiencesduring my Harding career,” Swindle said. “I am also a lot closer to whereI want to be spiritually, which makes everything else better in life.”Rebecca Harrell and Rachel Klemmerfinishing strongSenior player finds faith and friendsSenior hard-hitter Karina Swindle returns a ball played by a Delta State opponent ina match on April 14, 2008.

Craig Rainboltwhynot us?Hardballers earn spot inGSC TournamentMaking it to the 2008 Gulf South Conference Tournamentstood out as the top accomplishment for the Bison baseballteam during the 2008 season. The team qualified for thetournament for the first time since 2002 and since Dr. Patrick McGahatook the reins as head coach.The GSC consisted of two divisions: the east, containing seven teams,and the west, made up of eight. Harding was in the west division, whichwas considered the tougher of the two categories. Only eight teams totalqualified for the GSC, and Harding was one of four teams in the westdivision to do so. To make it to the GSC was a worthy goal for the teamto strive for and certainly an exciting one to achieve.“[Making it into the GSC] was a big step forward,” McGaha said ofthe impact of qualifying for the tournament. “It was always a goal tobecome a contender in the conference.”Coach Brent Haring added that the team’s ultimate goal was to enterthe tournament as the No. 1 seed.Both McGaha and Haring reported contributions from many playersduring the 2008 season that made going to the GSC Tournament possible.McGaha said that juniors Troy Keith and Brodie Brumley helped out theteam with their pitching, while senior Aaron Roberts contributed with 10home runs and was named Second Team All-Conference.In addition to outstanding performances by individual players, Brumleycommented on the team’s hard work as a whole that contributed toqualifying for the GSC.“Mostly our work ethic was a lot better than previous years,” Brumleysaid. “We worked a lot harder for the next season, so we knew we wouldbe better.”In the first round game at the tournament,the No. 4 seeded Bisons led their opponent,No.1 seed Valdosta State, until the bottom ofthe ninth inning.“We have a huge picture of the scoreboardgoing into the bottom of the ninth [in theclubhouse],” Brumley said. “It just reminds ushow close we were.”With the ever-present goal of winning aDivision II conference title still on their minds,the Bisons looked to channel that momentuminto the next season. As last season was only thesecond time in Harding’s history that the baseballteam qualified for the GSC, both coaches andplayers anticipated greater accomplishmentsstill to come.While the baseball team continued to strivefor excellence on the field, McGaha and Haringalso encouraged the players to represent Hardingadmirably off the field, both academically andspiritually. Both coaches wanted the baseballteam to show that they were good ambassadorsof God, family and sportsmanship.Rebecca Harrell and Emily HauptliRow 1: H. Boyd, J. Glenn, Z. Fisher, B. Whitaker, R.

standing firmBison golfer achieves success on and off courseAs the Harding men’s golf team drove to the Hot SpringsCountry Club, expectations were high. Five men had workedall year, both individually and as a whole, towards the GulfSouth Conference Tournament. The Bisons competed against 13other teams that belonged to a conference which many felt was thetoughest in NCAA Division II competition.Coach Nicky Boyd said the team was excited to play and feltconfident they would do well; however, they tried to treat it as justanother day of playing golf.“We played tournaments all year right up until the big one,” Boydsaid. “We hit a lot of balls the week leading up to it, but there wasreally nothing different about the way we prepared.”Boyd also attributed the leadership of juniors Andrew Warderand Dusty Gourley to the team’s preparation.“They both set excellent examples to all our players by theirwork ethic and personal discipline to do everything they could toget better,” Boyd said.Senior Austin Osburn said that while the team played well on thefirst day of the tournament, things did not seem to come togetherlike they had hoped.“After the first day we were doing really well, and then things juststarted to go south,” Osburn said. “I think we put a lot of pressureon ourselves because we were playing above even our own expectationsthe first day, but unfortunately that’s the way golf is; it’s anall-out mental battle.”After three rounds of golf, the Bisons finished 9th overall. Individually,though, junior Dusty Gourley placed 6th overall, and madethe All-Tournament team.“We didn’t place as well as we would have liked, and for severalof our guys, it was their last college tournament,” Gourley said. “Ona personal level, I was very excited. I knew I could have played better,yet I was still able to compete at that high level.”Gourley said he attributed most of his success to lots of time onthe driving range and putting green leading up to the tournament,which helped him stay focused. However, Gourley said that thetournament was in the past, and now he was excited and lookingforward to the 2009 season.“My expectations for this season are very high,” Gourley said. “Wehave two seniors returning: Andrew Warder and myself. We have asophomore and several freshmen that are very promising. We want tocompete for the team title, so we know we have to play very well.”Zach WelchSenior Dusty Gourley prepares to blast his way out of a bunkerin a practice round played Oct. 28.

Craig RainboltWhenbenefitFreshman contributes time andtalents to experienced teamit came to height, weight and stature, he was not at the top of the list,weighing in at 145 pounds and measuring at 5’8’’, but when it came toaggression, dedication and persistence, he soared to the top of the men’ssoccer roster.Freshman Phillip McCormick was recruited by the men’s soccer team his senior yearof high school and played in 18 games, started 12 games and scored 11 goals for theBisons in the 2008 season.McCormick had played soccer for as long as he could remember.“My parents put me in a soccer league when I was four,” he said. “Then I just neverstopped playing after that. My older sister also played soccer, so I always looked up toher and took notes from her when I was younger.”McCormick joined his first club team at age 11 and played for two years. Then, he switchedto a more advanced team, which traveled internationally to play in tournaments.Many times he won “man of the match,” a team award given to a game’s outstandingplayer, in his games overseas. After several years, that team broke up, and he rejoinedhis first team, which he decided still was not advanced enough for him to prepare toplay on a collegiate level.Then, the soccer all-star moved to Dallas, Texas, with his family, which was wherehe played on his most successful team, winning two league championships back-to-backand personally scoring 24 goals in 17 games.“It was then that I was recruited by Harding University,” McCormick said.To say the least, he lived his life for soccer, which spectators and Harding teammates,like senior Odie Guzman, were able to see.“Phillip is a person that has a lot of heart for the game, and he never wants to lethis teammates down,” Guzman said. “There have been many times that if he was notout there playing, we would have lost the game. He is a very humble person when hehas an excellent game and refuses to give up any time we are losing.”The common agreement that fellow teammates had of McCormick made it evidentthat his passion for the sport was real. Throughout his soccercareer, McCormick was never close-minded as far as positionshe was to play.“Phil is a very skilled player,” junior teammate AndrewFlesher said. “He came into Harding as a defender but gotmoved up to striker shortly after [arriving]. He’s great to haveas a teammate, and he’s definitely a team player and workshard in every training session.”Flesher also said he enjoyed playing with McCormickbecause of his work rate and skill, which raised the level ofplay in practice and games.“He’s got a very bright future as a player,” Flesher said.Another teammate, junior Chad Marshall, had similar feelingsand views of McCormick. Marshall said that he was a very aggressiveand passionate player and a good teammate to have.“You can never question his effort or his desire to win,and you can always count on him to work hard and never giveup on his team,” Marshall said.Clearly, this rising all-star did not have an issue of wastingany talent on selfish ambition or from lack of teamwork. Hewas thankful for the success in his first collegiate season andthe opportunities that it provided him.“My freshman year was a learning year for me,” McCormicksaid. “I hope that throughout my sophomore year I’ll be ableproduce greater results then I did my freshman year.”Allison WeaverRow 1: T.

never beforeLady Bisons score three goals in under five minutes to cap historic comebackFreshman midfielder Chelsea Brandon moves the ball down field against the Missouri Southern defendersin a game played on Aug. 31. Brandon was second in the team in minutes played and led the teamin goals scored. Noah DarnellOn the Sept. 7 game against Drury University, the LadyBisons soccer team had lost hope. After playing mostof the game without scoring a goal, the players wereready to give up. Little did they know that a huge turn aroundwas about to occur.The turn around came in the form of three goals scored infour minutes and nine seconds to come back to win the game.Drury was leading the game 2-0. With less than eight minutes leftin the game, sophomore Brianna Meek scored the Lady Bisons’first goal. Then freshman Chelsea Brandon scored a free kick to tieup the score. Before the clock had three minutes left in the game,junior Kellie DeAtley scored the third goal to put them in the lead,3-2. Drury got a few shots off but did not score, leading the LadyBisons to victory. They had come back from a two-point deficit towin the game, making it their first win of the season.The team had just lost their previous two games and did notthink this would be an easy matchup. Women’s soccer coach GregHarris said they expected it to be a tough game, but were going togo in and play hard. That was exactly what this team did.The girls played hard during the first part of the game, butsince they were losing by two points, they began to lose theirmomentum. Harris said he was upset and ready to run the girlsreally hard at their next practice.“We were not playing bad; we just needed something to breakthe ice,” Harris said. “When Brianna Meek scored the first goal,that broke the ice.”After each goal was scored, the girls began to get fired up andwere ready to claim a victory.“The girls worked hard and were getting tired, but after thefirst goal, a little of the fire came back,” sophomore goalie ChelseaHornbeck said. “When we got the second goal, there was a hungerin their eyes that couldn’t be stopped. After the third goal, therewas no way we were going to let them get another goal and gointo overtime. With each goal, I saw energy come back to the girls.A group of average girls coming together for each other to win agame is an unforgettable feeling.”The adrenaline from scoring the three goals so quickly helpedthe team hold Drury and win for only the second major comebackin the history of the Lady Bisons soccer team. At the end of thegame, everyone was smiling — even the coach.“Any victory feels good, but this one was especially rewardingbecause it showed not only me, but the team as well, thatyou should never give up,” DeAtley said. “It is easy to give upwhen you are down, but I have never been so proud of the teambefore. We stuck together, encouraged each other and workedtogether to achieve something, and it was a perfect example tome of what a team is supposed to look like.”Besides the excitement from the win, the girls also learnedthat hard work and perseverance really paid off.Harris believed that lessons like that were some of the bestthings the players could get from their soccer careers.“They can apply this comeback not only to soccer butto their everyday lives,” Harris said. “It even applies to theirChristian lives as well. When you are down and out, you canalways come back.”The players agreed with Harris’ advice and found ways to applythe lessons they learned on the soccer field to their daily lives.“Sometimes in life you feel like you are losing,” Hornbecksaid. “But at any time God can put something in your life to yougive you energy and push you forward.”Bethany Loftiswomen’s soccer 291

While membersof the teams could boast impressive personal achievements,such as freshman Daniel Kirwa blowing away competition at theGSC tournament with a record time of 24 minutes, 30 seconds,or junior Esther Komen posting a top time of 18 minutes, 53seconds at the same tournament, they were most proud of theirteammwork.Team captain and senior Julius Kosgei finished his fourthyear running on the team, and he believed that this year was oneof Harding’s strongest years they had seen yet.“I feel privileged to be a part of the team this year,” Kosgeisaid. “The team was together, organized and ready every timethey were needed.”Also important was head coach Steve Guymon, who finishedhis seventh year as the men and women’s cross country andtrack head coach.“Coach Guymon is the best coach I have ever known,” Kosgeisaid. “He does everything on time and with a purpose. He canbring athletes together with a common thought.”Guymon built a team of dedicated athletes and continued topush them to do their best for as long as he coached.“Coach [Guymon] sacrifices a lot of his time preparing forpractice and helping every runner individually,” sophomore runnerRachel Conley said.As of October, the team was ranked third in the NCAA. Inthe midst of this victorious season, Guymon said he felt honoredand humbled to be coaching such talented students.The athletes worked hard during the season to bring success tothis team, running between 70 and 100 miles each week. Althoughthought of as an individual sport, members on the cross countryteam realized the importance of sticking together as a team.“Cross country is so team-oriented,” junior Katy Grant said.“You’re all out there running the same race, and just knowingthat your teammates are working as hard as you are for the teamis encouraging.”The 2008 NCAA regional tournament took place on Nov.8 at the Wyldewood Retreat Center in Searcy. This competitionconsisted of the men’s 10K run and the women’s 6K run. Bothteams qualified for Nationals, with the men coming in first placewith a perfect score and the women claiming second place.Kosgei introduced a concept called “Defend the Spear” asinspiration at the regional championship. As the hosting team,they did not want to lose on their home ground. They used thisidea of defending what was theirs to motivate them at theirhome meet.This attitude and hard work showed the team what they couldaccomplish together.“God has blessed our team so much this year,” Conley said.“We have a great coach and a great group of athletes that are allwilling to work hard for each other.”Bethany LoftisFreshman Phillip Biwott, senior Julius Kosgei and freshman Daniel Kirwa lead the pack at the Ted Lloyd BisonStampede on Oct.11. The Bisons won the team event with Kirwa taking first place in the individual race with atime of 23 minutes, 48 seconds.

Noah DarnellSeniorSevohn Greer’s football accomplishments couldhave covered an entire wall of the hallway in the GanusAthletic Center, but the senior linebacker said it was notabout personal accomplishments in the 2008 Harding Bison footballseason. Instead, it was about getting to play the game he loved. Acomplex shoulder injury in 2006 left Greer on the sideline for anextended period of time and left him wondering if he would everstep foot on the field again.“It was devastating for me,” Greer said. “The most frustratingpart is that for a long time we couldn’t pinpoint the problem. Oncewe finally figured it out, I was able to have surgery.”Bison coach Ronnie Huckeba said loosing Greer for the seasonwas a tremendous setback.“It was hard for us as a team and a huge blow to Sevohn,”Huckeba said. “He is a great competitor and was a big part ofour plan for the season.”After a year of hard work and rehabilitation, Greer returnedfor the 2008 season and posted some of the best numbers of hiscareer. Not only was he second in total tackles for the Gulf SouthConference, Greer also led the entire nation in forced fumbles forNCAA Division II.Huckeba said his ability to bounce back from an injury and performwell was attributed to his strong character and work ethic.“His strengths are his passion, work ethic and accountability,”Huckeba said. “He never takes a short cut. He leads by example, andAfter suffering shoulder injury senior gets onemore year on the fieldhis teammates see how he goes about his business. Great playershave passion, and that is absolutely the truth with Sevohn.”Senior and fellow defensive back Alex Scarborough said Greer wasa major asset to the football team during his time at Harding.“He is a great player, but he is also an awesome guy,” Scarboroughsaid. “He has excellent character and is always there forus on and off the field.”As far as what the future held for Greer, Huckeba said he feltGreer had a pretty good chance to continue to play if he wanted.Greer said he would love the opportunity to continue to play, buthe was not sure how realistic that would be.“I would love to play football at the next level, but I’m a littleguy,” said Greer. “It won’t break my heart if this was the lastseason for me.”Greer said if he did not make it further playing football, hehad his sights set on being a high-level sports agent for professionalfootball.Greer said he was excited to see what the future had in storeand was also very grateful for everything he had the opportunityto experience during his career at Harding.“The one thing I will take away from Harding is the relationships,”Greer said. “Not just with my teammates but with all the[people] that have supported me and the rest of the program.

alaska boundAt the beginning of the fall 2008 semester, the Lady Bison volleyballteam embarked on an adventure. Besides participating in a challengingtournament, the team was able to go white-water rafting,shopping and sightseeing around the beautiful countryside of Alaska.“I loved the trip and would have liked to stay there longer,” seniorShellie Rummer said. “Alaska is such a beautiful state, and the temperaturewas perfect — a nice escape from the 90 degree Arkansas weather.”Besides just a change in weather, the team got to experience severalother things foreign to their college home in Searcy.“We got to go white-water rafting, which was probably the funniestthing in the world. We got to see [Coach] Gib fall out of our raft,” Rummersaid. “We also [saw] a real glacier [and] ate great food.”Although the trip to Alaska could have been viewed as a vacation,the team had to earn this trip. They had long practices, repeated drillsand worked out together. The girls even had to be back on campus 10days earlier than other students in preparation for the trip.“Every year, before school starts, we come on campus and havepractices three times a day,” junior outside hitter Manuela Nesheva said.“Once school starts we have only one practice a day, and by the NCAArules we have to have one day off in the week.”That extra practice time allowed the team to begin working out anykinks in their game to get ready for the Alaska tournament and the restof the season.“Sometimes [in practice] when something was not working as it shouldhave, we approached it in a different way,” Nesheva said. “We tried andstill try to make each other better and to figure out ways to do that.”The work that the girls put in for the Alaska trip resulted not onlyin being able to compete in a new place and enjoy breathtaking scenery,but also in becoming closer as a team.“At the tournament I believe we really grew as a team, and this helpedset the stage for the season to come,” senior Leah Tepe said. “One of theunique characteristics about our team is that we train hard no matter thesituation, and our team [also] has a very unique chemistry. We get alongas teammates on the court [and] off the court.”Competing in the tournament and spending a whole week together wasalso a chance for the new freshmen on the team to begin their volleyballexperience at the collegiate level and mesh with their older teammates.“The trip definitely helped our team bond a lot faster than usual,”Rummer said. “I think us older members helped the freshman feel [like]part of the team and helped them keep their minds off being away fromhome. Since we were together for so long, we got used to each other andreally got to know each other.”Throughout the season, the team grew closer. However, most agreedthat the Alaska trip was what initially brought them together and keptthem together for the remainder of the season. Not only did they have agreat time in Alaska, but they also learned about each other and becamefriends instead of just teammates.“It was like being on a vacation with 14 of your best friends,” Rummersaid.Rebecca HarrellVolleyball team travels to play in tournamentSenior middle blocker Shellie Rummer keeps her eye on the ball as she attempts akill against the Texas A&M Commerce blockers in a game played on Sept. 12.

Brown led the Bisons in free throw attempts and finished second in rebounds per game.Craig RainboltAs the 2008-09 season began, the Harding Bisons men’sbasketball team had a lot of unanswered questionswhen it came to team dynamics. Losing their numberone scorer along with four other seniors the previous season,the minds of coaches, players and fans were clouded withthoughts of what was to come. Despite the loss of thesekey components from last years Gulf South ConferenceWest Championship team, Coach Jeff Morgan remainedoptimistic about the team’s desire to succeed.“Going into the season, the team had a chance to be betterdefensively and play quicker and more athletically,” Morgansaid. “Coming into the year we wanted to see how well theplayers developed and progressed throughout the year.”The 2008-09 team came into the season with three seniorsand only two returning starters, joined with three freshmen,three transfer students and only one player that had anysignificant amount of playing time. The team looked tosome fresh faces to provide momentum. The Bisons reliedon solid play from sophomore transfers Sam Brown andSteven Blake, with sophomore Matt Garner also receivinga boost in playing time.“The transfers have played an important part to theteam’s success,” Morgan said. “They have come in and playedreally hard both offensively and defensively.”As one of the three seniors on the team and the onlyone with starting experience, senior guard Steven Barnettbecame a foundation for the team’s success.“Steven Barnett has become a better decision makerthroughout his four years here,” Morgan said. “[He] hasbecome more of an offensive threat and is able to get histeammates open with his penetration and passing skills.”Barnett started a few games during his freshman yearand started the past three years full-time.“Knowing that I have a heads-up on [the] style and speedof play in the GSC really makes a difference in my game,” hesaid. “Learning that we are all in this together as a team andthat there is a good group of coaches here willing to helpyou has had a real impact on my time here at Harding.”Alongside Barnett, getting his first real taste of GSC playwas senior forward Brian Howard. Howard had been withthe team since the 2005-06 season, but really only beganseeing an increase in the amount of his playing time in the2008-09 season.“It has been a different experience being able to startthis year,” Howard said. “I feel like I have taken on moreof a leadership role.”With all the adjustments, the goal remained unchangedfor the Bisons.“Our goals for each year are the same; win championshipsand make it to the national tournament,” Morgan said.“With the group of guys we have this year, we feel like wehave a good chance to accomplish those goals and to buildfor future success.”Even though the team had a different look and style ofplay about them, each player was determined to achieve thegoals set out before them at the beginning of the year bythe team and the coaches.Nathan Ramirezmen’s basketball 301


Tropical Tip-offLady Bisons travel to Hawaii, share wins and experiencesWhen presented with the good fortune to travelto Hawaii and participate in a tournament overChristmas break, women’s basketball head coachTim Kirby immediately jumped at the chance.“As a coaching staff we felt that this was a great opportunityfor our girls to grow and experience new thingsas a team,” Kirby said.The team left from the Little Rock Airport on Dec.19. Following a layover in Houston, the team took-off onan eight-hour flight to Honolulu on the island of Oahu.Changing time zones, a concern for the team, proved notto be a problem.“We dealt with the time change going to Hawaii fine,”Kirby said. “The problem was coming back to Searcy andlosing those four hours that we had gained.”Despite the distractions that a place like Hawaii couldbring, the team showed up at the tournament ready to play.They played two games within three days of their arrival,beating both Hawaii Chaminade and Hawaii Pacific. Whilethe Lady Bisons won their first game fairly easily, the secondproved more difficult.“It came down to the last seven seconds,” junior KaitlinMay said. “But we found a way to win and really cametogether as a team.”Kirby understood the circumstances he was placing histeam in by accepting the invitation to play in this tournamentand prepared accordingly.“We prepared our scouting reports and gathered ourgame clips before we left, which really saved us a lot oftime when we actually arrived,” Kirby said. “It allowed usto spend time experiencing the different things that Hawaiihas to offer.”After notching two wins in the tournament, the team wasexcited to get out and explore the island before returninghome. The group drove around and indulged in the culturaland tourist attractions that Hawaii offered.“We all had a good time just riding around the island andgoing to the beach,” senior guard Katherine McMenamy said.“I couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls to go with.We now share a special experience that we will rememberfor the rest of our lives.”The trip to Hawaii gave the Lady Bisons a chance tomold as a team and prepare for the season ahead. Returninghome, the team continued their pursuit of making theGulf South Conference tournament. With the help fromsome new faces like transfers senior Ashley Anderson andsophomore Makala McNair, the Lady Bisons looked to accomplishtheir goal.“Starting out we wanted to give the new players theexpectations that we had for them,” Kirby said. “We wantedto let them know what the Lady Bison basketball team isall about.”With the combination of many newcomers and a load ofexperience, the Lady Bisons were able to face any challengethat came their way.Nathan RamirezSenior post Ashley Anderson attempts a layup in front of the Alabama-Huntsville defenders in agame played Dec. 13.

In 10 years, when we return to these pages of memoriesand reflect on our time spent here at Harding,what will we see? Familiar faces and names will jogour minds and warm our hearts. We will rememberthese friends for their influence and guidance. Wemight also see faculty members or staff who aided inour spiritual and logical growth, or our first roommatefrom freshman year. These people could evenbe ourselves. We are now part of the many pages ofHarding’s history.Hannah Beallopening division 307

Near the foothillseditor’s noteLast year’s book theme, ‘Molding a Masterpiece,’ came to me beforeI even applied for the editor-in-chief position. This year however,I had editor’s block and could not think of anything profound forthe theme of my last book as a Petit Jean staffer. Not until May, duringthe start of the 2008 graduation ceremony, did anything strike me.All in attendance of the graduation were asked to stand and singHarding’s alma mater, and a girl down the row from me said somethingto the effect of, “I’m glad they printed the words in the program becauseI never learned them.” It hit me as strange that in the four plus years thatstudents attend Harding, someone could still not know the school’s almamater. And then all around me, others were stumbling through the verses;laughing with one another about how funny it was that they didn’t evenknow we had an alma mater, and what was a ‘foothill’ anyway?I then thought back to the first day I learned this song. I had beenon campus a mere three hours before I was whisked away to choir campwhere one of the first things we learned was the alma mater. Being atCamp Tahkodah, surrounded by mountains, trees and rivers, I truly felta connection with the words “Near the Foothills.” But if I had not beenin choir or had decided that sleeping in a cabin with people I didn’t knowwas uncomfortable and had skipped the retreat, would I have ever learnedall three verses of the alma mater? Probably not.So there in the middle of graduation, I decided that the 2008-2009Petit Jean yearbook would be a sort of history book of Harding, completewith old pictures of campus, interesting facts about buildings, the facultyand social clubs, and even include the words to the alma mater. I wantedstudents to come away and have some knowledge about the school andthe town they lived in for four or more years of their lives.“Near the Foothills,” the theme of this book, is a tribute to thosewho created Harding’s unique traditions and paved the way for studentsfor generations to come to be able to worship, be educated and creatememories on a beautiful campus in Arkansas. By the time I pulled mywhite tassel from right to left and shook Dr. Burk’s hand for the secondtime ever in my Harding career, I was excited to learn a bit about Harding’shistory to relate to future generations of Bisons.Through these pages, I hope readers not only learn a little more aboutHarding, but also about the reasons for the traditions we participate inand how they bring us all together. No matter what major, political party,social club or even beliefs, Harding has a way of encapsulating us all inGod’s love.Katie Ramirez, editor in chief314 index closing
