A stamp mural by Dr. Carl Gombert, Maryville College professor of art, was installed Tuesday at Coulter Grove Intermediate School! The mural, which is 38 feet, 4 inches long and weighs about 60 pounds, is the world’s largest rubber stamp mural, according to Gombert. Check out the Daily Times story!
Today the Scots Science Scholars presented the results of some activities they did during the three weeks of their pre-semester program! During that time they worked and played hard, learning about science and math as well as about themselves and each other...now that's a great start to a Maryville College education! http://scotssciencescholars.com/

I received a letter yesterday from one of the people planning the class of '65 50th reunion next fall. He shared some memories of my mom and also what the class will be giving the school as their reunion gift. He mentioned how stunned they were to hear of her passing because they all "just knew" they would see her again. Even though it isn't a reunion year for me, I will be going. Hearing her name at the memorial service will be hard. Her love for MC is what brought me to Maryville 25 years after she graduated. "Howee, Howee, Chilhowee! Maryville, Maryville Tennessee! Ooh, Ahh, Tennessee!" #ceceliabridges1965 #onceascotalwaysascot
