Welcome back to school everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday break and J-term went well. Some things are happening in the CCM and I just wanted to update. On Tuesday, January 27, we received a beautiful baby grand piano! It was donated to the CCM and you should drop by to see it. It will be tuned and ready for our first chapel on February 3rd. For our first chapel we will hear from Sophie Lively. She will be the first of several seniors that will speak in chapel this semester. Spread the word and we hope to see you there!
The Maryville College Center for Campus Ministry now has a baby grand piano! The instrument was donated by Kathryn Brown of Birmingham, Alabama and the transportation was paid for by Felix and Helen Yarboro in the name of MC graduates Betty and Gordon Harold.
The Maryville College Center for Campus Ministry is hosting an informational public event about upcoming opportunities and changes to the Affordable Care Act and TennCare on Monday, Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. Insurance representatives will be available to answer questions. “Our Bonner Scholars program is committed to civic engagement, social justice, and community building," said the Rev. Dr. Anne McKee, campus minister.
It looks like the Freshmen are all moved in and within the next couple of days, all students will be back on campus. The CCM is getting ready for Orientation Worship this Sunday morning at 10am in the Clayton Center. We join with Church Relations and welcome the area churches for Church & College Day before the worship service. First chapel service will be September 2nd with Anne McKee as our speaker. Looks like it will be a great year!
Friends and family, I could use your help. I am $165 away from reaching my goal for my MTRGive Project and having what I need to start the school year off right for my students. Please consider donating. Here's what I figure: if 15 people donated $11 dollars, we've met the goal. If 10 people donate $16.50, we're good. If 5 people donated $33, the goal would be met. You can check out the project and donate using this link: http://mtrgive.org/campaigns/ms-wilkss-visible-thinking/
Dear MC Family, Hello, my name is Nikki Wilks, and I am a proud 2012 alumna of the college. After Maryville, I moved to Memphis to join a program called Memphis Teacher Residency (www.memphistr.org, http://mtrlife.org/profiles/nikki-wilks, http://memphistr.org/cceexplained). This fall I will start my second year in the classroom teaching sophomore and senior English at Kingsbury High School(www.kingsburyhs.org) in the Graham Heights community (http://memphistr.org/grahamheights). As many of you know, funding is slim in the education world. Therefore, I need your help. If you could, please check out my project and my friends' projects here in Memphis and consider donating (http://mtrgive.org, http://mtrgive.org/campaign/ms-wilkss-visible-thinking). Any little bit would help. I am raising funds to get a document camera to help model thinking for students and organizational supplies to help my classroom management. If you would like more info, please check out the links above or feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thank you so much for your on-going support and encouragement as I do my work here in Memphis. Sincerely, Nikki Wilks firstname.lastname@example.org
