FROM THE PRESIDENT
Faith and learning should interact, by all means
his year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and this past June, faculty from several schools across the university met to read and discuss the seminal writings of Martin Luther. The Reformation of the 16th Century was a religious movement with social, political, and cultural consequences remaining to the present. It was a complex and multifaceted historical era that witnessed the splintering of Catholic Europe and set in place the structures and beliefs that set the stage for the modern era. Reformers such as Luther directed their concerns towards the church, but the Reformation was born in the university. Luther’s first teaching post was at the University of Erfurt as professor of theology where he had completed his doctoral studies, but in 1508, his superior in the Augustinian monastery dispatched him to a relatively new, fledging university in Wittenberg. Wittenberg was one of about a dozen German universities developed between the latter part of the 15th and early 16th centuries. These advanced institutions of higher education providing training in theology, law, medicine and the liberal arts, and were impacted by the intellectual and cultural developments of Renaissance humanism in northern Europe.
improve society. For all the dust he stirred up, Luther didn’t want to change society; he only wanted to make it better. Properly ordered, universities would aid in the moral development of leaders who would influence the people and institutions they served. Luther emphasized the importance of the liberal arts in the curriculum without compromising the cardinal evangelical teachings on faith and grace. His hope was that students receiving this kind of education would become skilled professionals with the competencies and capacities for serving the public, contributing to the common good, and fulfilling their calling from God.
treated like outer garments one hangs on a peg outside the classroom before entering. This is where Campbell is different. Our mission statement affirms that “learning is appointed and conserved by God as essential to the fulfillment of human destiny,” and that Campbell “embraces the conviction that there is no conflict between the life of faith and the life of inquiry.” The two domains of faith and learning are distinct, yet when the two interact through creative connections and an earnest search for truth, there is an enormous capacity for educational development and personal growth within the dynamic tension.
Luther called for reform of the universities in his earliest manifestos. In his 1520 “Address to the German Nobility,” he appealed to the leaders of the country to change the universities, and in a letter written in 1524, he made a similar appeal to the councilmen of all the cities in Germany. In “The Freedom of the Christian,” Luther expounded the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers, the authority of Scripture, and divine calling of all people to vocations of service, not just priests and members of religious orders, and probed the implications of these teachings for education. The growing availability of Scripture, due to the new information technology created by the Gutenberg printing press, required a literate populace who could not only read but also thoroughly study the Bible. Churches needed educated pastors, and schools needed trained teachers. Magistrates needed jurists, lawyers, clerks, and counselors to staff civil agencies and replace canon lawyers. Universities like Wittenberg rose to meet these challenges.
Isn’t this what we hope for our students? Our aim, indicated by our mission statement, is to graduate students “with exemplary academic and professional skills who are prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service.” We want them to live good lives, become good people, and add to and not subtract from the common good. We want them to make a life, make a living, and make a difference, and in whatever field or profession they choose, to lead with purpose with a conviction that what they are called to do is beneficial to their neighbor and pleasing to God — not so different from what Luther desired for his students.
Martin Luther believed that each person, no matter the background or station in life, is accountable to God and gifted by God for a unique destiny. Education is a means for cultivating and calling out this destiny. The students under our charge are traveling one of the most formative and significant segments of their journey of life while in college. We are guides to help them hear the call by teaching them habits of mind and heart along with skills and competencies needed to pursue their calling.
Luther envisioned universities as engines of personal and social reform which would M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
Though Wittenberg and Campbell universities are half a world apart in distance and separated by half a millennium of time, they share the same institutional mission of faith interacting with learning so that faith informs the educational process and critical thinking develops faith. Faith should never impede learning, and learning should not foil faith. In some sectors of the modern academy, faith is seen as inimical to learning. Religious convictions and faith commitments are
I believe a Campbell education offers our students an opportunity to make a living, to make a life and to make a difference, now and evermore, until God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

HOPES & DREAMS We asked more than a dozen incoming freshmen — the Class of 2021 — during their summer orientation what they hoped to get out of the next four years at Campbell University and what their hopes and dreams are for the future. Below is just a sample of their answers: Brianna Pazcko: “What I want from Campbell more than anything is a well-rounded experience, touching all aspects of life. I want to join different clubs and meet people from all over the world. My dream is to help people. I want to get into physical therapy eventually, bringing people to a place they never thought they'd be able to get back to. To rehabilitate people and help them become happy with their lives again.” Sierra Fuller: “I hope to build relationships during my four years at Campbell and just feel comfortable while finding out who I am as a person. My dream is to travel to other countries and provide people with the medicine and medical care they need and don't have access to.” Marcus Corry: “My goal at Campbell is to just gather wisdom and prepare myself for the real world. To just enjoy college life. As for my dream, I want to make it to the NFL. But I just want to be successful in whatever I do.” Samuel Brown: “I hope to venture out on my own, meet new people and find out how the world works. My dream is to travel the world, meet people from other cultures and see a variety of people and places that make up God's great creation." Skyler Ferrell: "As I enter this new chapter, I just want to make it the best I can. I want to meet new people, explore things and figure out about myself and the world. My dream is to find an occupation where I can help others and give back to the community."
4 SUMMER 2017
As North Carolina joins other states in the battle against opioid addiction, Campbell health sciences students are learning about the dangers of addictive prescription drugs and alternative ways to treat pain. Dr. Nicholas Pennings [pictured above], assistant professor of family medicine at Campbell Med, believes motivational interviewing can go a long way in educating patients on proper pain management.
THE OPIOI D EPIDEMIC MAGAZIN
Opioid epidemic fight starts with doctors To the Editor: I’m responding to your Campbell Magazine [Spring 2017] cover story on the opioid crisis. I have a chronic health condition that causes severe migraines and lots of pain all over. It began about eight years ago. I won't bore you with unnecessary details of it all, but I can tell you that if I had not been my own advocate in researching, I would be one of those sucked into “just staying drugged up on pain meds.” It has been a hard fight to find doctors that really want to find the root cause of my problems instead of just treating symptoms. I've had almost every doctor try multiple times to push antidepressants, which I refuse. I've had a few try to send me to “pain management clinics,” and after going to one, I never returned and will never go again. It is very scary how easy these potent addictive drugs were being pushed to me. I have had doctors recommend taking hyrdrocodone on a regular basis for pain management, along with nerve-blocking injections. When I’ve said I can't do that because of the many side effects, they look at me weird and basically say there is nothing more they can do for me. I was once prescribed fentanyl, and I was shocked when I read the information my pharmacist gave me.
Finding the source of all my pain has been the fight for me. I've been the “mystery diagnosis” patient that some doctors are intrigued by, but I find most are intimidated by. I am thankful for the few doctors that have fought with me to help me find answers. Patients need to be their own advocate, but it’s reassuring that future doctors [like those taking opioid courses at Campbell] are learning there are other ways to treat chronic pain. Thank you for your article. EVA Last name held by request

As pointed out by more than one eagle-eyed Campbell Magazine reader, the classic car parked in front of Carter Gymnasium in our "From the Vault" photo in the Spring edition was not a 1956 Ford Galaxie, as the Galaxie wasn't produced until 1959. While we haven't been able to produce a definitive date to the photo, it appears it was taken in the early 1960s. We regret the error and our terrible knowledge of car history.

y the fall of 2019, the heart of Campbell University’s campus will have an entirely new look and feel. The centerpiece of President J. Bradley Creed’s Campbell Leads fundraising campaign will be a 100,000-square-foot student union that will enhance both the educational and social lives of students. According to Creed, the student union — to be built where Baldwin and Kitchin halls currently stand in the Academic Circle — will provide academic support and promote student involvement, foster engagement with university employees and guests, offer amenities that enhance campus life and support campus partners like the Office of Student Life and the Campbell Times. “We envision the student union to be a dynamic space for building the Campbell community,” says Creed, who has promoted the idea for a center since Day 1 as president. Construction on the new facility will begin with the fall demolition of Baldwin and Kitchin, dormitories that have served main campus since the 1950s. According to Jim Roberts, vice president for business and

Amenities in the new facility will include four dining locations, including a main cafeteria to replace Marshbanks Hall, plus a juice bar and deli shop. An apparel and collegiate memorabilia store will also be part of the first floor, set near a two-story fitness center. The second floor will include a banquet hall that will seat up to 800 people and a movie theater that will double as an instruction area for larger classes. The building will feature a glass tower that can change lighting colors, and the walls facing the Academic Circle will be made
BY THE NUMBERS A closer look at the new student union coming to Campbell University's main campus, expected in fall 2019:
The movie theater inside the new student union will become the first and only movie theater in Harnett County. Currently, Campbell students have to drive 20 to 25 miles for theaters in Apex or Garner.
The student union will be one of two new buildings coming to the Academic Circle in the next few years. Before it, a new admissions building will be built in the bare section of land between the proposed union and Butler Chapel. Like the union, the admissions building will have glass walls providing prospective students a scenic view of the campus and the iconic Kivett Hall.

tour during his first year in 2015 — to offer a sneak peek of the new facility and provide more details of the campaign, which will also go toward funding the more than 900 scholarships Campbell provides each year. “Through the Campbell Leads campaign, we seek support to provide opportunities for students to continue to develop quality leadership skills and experiences during their time on campus,” says Creed. “The student union will enhance our campus with amenities to empower our students to continue to develop their leadership and social skills.” Creed’s second speaking tour will begin on Sept. 12 in Dunn, followed by a Sept. 26 appearance in Fayetteville. The full schedule can be found at campbell.edu/president.
The banquet hall on the second floor of the new facility will seat up to 800 people for formal events, conferences, academic gatherings and more. The hall can be split into smaller rooms with partitions and will feature a catering kitchen. The entire second floor will have higher ceilings and glass walls to allow in more natural light.
The 100,000 square feet of space provided by the student union will be a tremendous upgrade from the current 11,000-squarefoot Wallace Student Center built in 1978. In addition to dining, fitness, merchandising and social areas for students, the facility will provide much-needed office and meeting space for Student Life, Greek Life and other student organizations, such as the Campbell Times newspaper and Pine Burr yearbook. Several rooms and areas will be designated study areas.

Patricia Oates Conway returned to finish an important chapter in Campbell's history
atricia Oates Conway’s first college experience will remain with her always — positive memories of choir trips and friendships mixed with the scars of prejudice and isolation. She enrolled at then-Campbell College in the fall of 1968 to study music, among the first three black students to desegregate the school in the late 60s (basketball star Cordell Wise was the first, coming to Campbell the previous year). However, she left Buies Creek for the bright lights of Baltimore in 1970 to, as she put it, find herself and start her life. Forty-seven years later, Conway finished what she started. In May, she walked with a hop in her step across the stage at Campbell’s spring commencement ceremony to receive her long-awaited degree in communication studies. Her graduation closed an important chapter in Campbell's history, providing a happy ending to a story that didn't always have the happiest of moments. Her first Campbell memory was in the summer of ’68, sitting outside of President Norman A. Wiggins’ office while her counselor from Sampson High School in Clinton, the Rev. Roger A. White (a Campbell grad), spoke to him about her enrollment. White walked out
M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
into the lobby where Conway sat, looked her in the eyes and said, “You’re a Campbell student.” “Dr. Wiggins asked Rev. White what I had to offer Campbell, and his response was, ‘What can Campbell do for her?’” Conway recalls. She did have something to offer Campbell — her voice. As a freshman, she joined the travelling choir and built strong friendships in the previously all-white group. Others on campus, however, weren’t as accepting. Conway recalls the first sting of the n-word from a fellow student as she walked to Marshbanks from her dorm to practice piano one afternoon. There was also the choir trip where she and a white male student were refused service at a restaurant in Raleigh because the waitress thought they were a couple. “Those experiences … they changed my whole scope on things,” she says. “It happens enough times, it does something to you.” The stress and the workload — difficult classes and a busy choir schedule — eventually became too much, and Conway left Campbell midway through her third year to move to Baltimore with her aunt and uncle. Work, marriage, children and a separation marked her 20 years in the city, and in the late 1980s, she returned home to be near family. All three

of her children went to college, and as adults, they began to encourage their mother to return. But it took a chance meeting with the man who introduced her to Campbell the first time — the Rev.
“I was working at Walmart at the time, and I felt a presence behind me. It was the Rev. Roger White,” she says. “We hadn’t seen each other in years, and not long after we exchanged pleasantries, he came out with, ‘When are you going back to Campbell?’ I answered, ‘Why? Am I supposed to?’ He said I needed to do it. ‘They owe you an education,’ he said.” Earlier that year, Conway lost her oldest son, Gary, who was 35. Before his death, Gary had also encouraged her to return to school, saying she was going to write a book one day. “I was standing at the edge of a cliff, looking over it, and there was no bottom,” Conway says. “I knew I had to take the leap, though. So I leapt. Four years later, I’m ready to run.” BILLY LIGGETT C A MP B E L L M AG AZ I N E 13

From tourists to pilgrims: Divinity students, alumni journey to Holy Land
or Anna Moxley, the emotion hit hardest in the West Bank at Wadi Qelt, which calls to mind the “valley of the shadow of death” in Psalm 23, a passage that has played a huge part of her faith journey. She recently lost her grandmother to ovarian cancer, and during the year she fought it, Psalm 23 was a source of comfort for not only Moxley, but her family as well. “Seeing a visual representation of that valley overwhelmed me,” says the Divinity School student. “I was reminded and reassured that we have hope beyond the pain of this life. But even in the midst of our pain, God is right there beside us.”
It was a graduation trip for Virginia Taylor (’17), who walked the stage the day before the flight from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Tel-Aviv, Israel. Taylor says a friend gave her a book about the Holy Land after she signed up, and one quote from the book spoke to her: Traveling through the Holy Land is like visiting the family home of a good friend. No matter how well you know the person, you’ll understand your friend better afterward. “I can say that is certainly true,” Taylor says. “Not only did the trip shape my understanding of Jesus, but also scripture. The Bible has really come to life for me.”
Moxley and 50 other students, faculty and alumni from Campbell embarked on a 12day journey to the Holy Land in May, taking in historic sites like the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Beatitudes, the stone city of Petra, the Dead Sea and the Mount of Olives. Their trip ended with a visit to the Garden Tomb, considered by any to be the site of the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
For student Corey Mitchell, it was hard to appreciate some aspects of the Holy Land because of the amount of debris and “lack of care” to some important parts of the Biblical landscape. But that did little to curb his enthusiasm upon his return — his favorite spot was the Dan spring, which flows into the Jordan River. It was there his experience shifted from “tourist” to “pilgrim.”
The trip was led by Tony Cartledge, professor of Old Testament and writer of the Nurturing Faith Bible Studies (Nurturing Faith Experiences partnered for the trip) and Peter Donlon, director of church relations and development for Campbell Divinity. In Israel, the group was led by veteran tour guide Doron Heiliger. “It was a phenomenal journey,” says Donlon. “It was, without a doubt, a life-changing experience for everybody.”
“It was at this point that I truly connected with God,” Mitchell says. “Not only did I feel his presence, but I felt as if I was one with nature. As I walked along the nature trail the sound of the flowing water reminded me of the scripture, ‘Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’ The sights and sounds were the ultimate experience for me.” BILLY LIGGETT

Professor honors his father — one of 52 U.S. citizens held hostage for 444 days by Iranian militants in 1979 — with memorial scholarship in his name
t had been a few weeks, maybe months, after U.S. diplomat Richard Morefield returned home after 444 hellacious days as one of 52 Americans held captive by Iranian militants from November 1979 to January 1981. Morefield was approached by an older couple in a restaurant who thanked him for being “a hero.” That “thank you” has stuck with Kenneth Morefield, who was 14 when his father was taken captive. “The encounter made my father a little uncomfortable,” he says. “He felt he didn’t do anything ‘heroic’ except survive. But he was gracious, and when the couple reached out to shake his hand, he saw the tattoos on their wrists. Marks from the concentration camps.” Kenneth Morefield is now 51, an important age for the Campbell English professor, because it's the same age his father was when his embassy in Tehran was stormed by students who supported the Iranian Revolution, which marked the beginning of 16 SUMMER 2017
what would come to be known as the Iran Hostage Crisis. In thinking back to what those 444 days were like for his father, his mother and his siblings, several high points and low points come to mind for Kenneth. The older he gets, the more those positive moments — outreach or kindness from complete strangers during the whole ordeal — jump to the forefront of his thoughts. And that fleeting moment with two Holocaust survivors —they, of all people, were impressed with his father’s courage and perseverance — will never be forgotten by the Morefield family. “I’ve thought about that story a lot,” says Kenneth. “My take from it is this: Suffering isn’t a contest. I think anyone who has that mindset gets locked into a victim mentality. It becomes what defines them. What I think my father wanted us to get from it was this — those who come to grips with their own suffering are the ones who are able to translate their experience into empathy and sympathy for others. It was a powerful moment for my father, for reasons he wasn’t able to articulate for some time.”
Richard Morefield died in 2010 after a lengthy battle with pneumonia. He was 81. In the spring, Kenneth, the youngest of Richard’s six children, announced through Campbell’s Office of Advancement that he will fund a memorial scholarship in his father’s name to honor his legacy and award students who meet certain criteria and represent that legacy. The Richard Morefield Memorial Scholarship will be made possible by money Kenneth has received from the United States Victims of State-Sponsored Terrorism Fund, established in 2015 to compensate thousands of victims of international acts of state-sponsored terrorism. In April, the U.S. Government announced it had made payments totaling more than $800 million to families, with the money administered by the Justice Department’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section (none of the fund is made up of taxpayer money). “I think it’s important, as a Christian and a representative of a Christian institution, when you get a cash windfall or gift like this, part of your response is giving back to the community
in ways that are meaningful,” Kenneth says. “This scholarship represents his values. It helps a cause that was important to him while he was alive.”
‘You can’t hold your breath’ Richard Morefield was sent to Iran because he had experience working calmly in war-torn countries. Iran in the late 1970s was in the midst of a revolution — the Pahlavi Dynasty, supported by the U.S., was eventually replaced by the Islamic Republic, led by the Ayatollah Khomeini. After the Embassy siege and the captivity of 52 Americans, an international crisis ensued. Morefield was held in a cramped cell lit only by small window slits above him for those 444 days. His experience was frightening. From his obituary in the Washington Post on Oct. 14, 2010: “Following lessons he learned in training, he made no attempt to befriend guards and ate all food offered to him. He spoke of surviving mentally by doing light exercise — push-ups, sit-ups, pacing his cell — and trying to create crossword puzzle games in his head and recall math problems from his childhood. He said the Iranians tried to play with his head by allowing him cards and books, only to take them away without warning.” Three times he was taken to a basement by his captors, blindfolded and told to kneel before them. Three times, the Iranians would place a pistol to his head and pull the trigger. Three times, the chamber was empty. Back in San Diego, California — 7,648 miles away — Kenneth had just started high school. His interests included drama and theater … the following year he’d perform in Serra High School’s production of M*A*S*H. That year and 79 days were a roller coaster ride of emotions for the Morefield family — highs on the 12 days they received a letter from dad, and lows such as the day an attempted rescue led to two helicopters colliding near the embassy, killing eight U.S. servicemen. “I think it was Christmas during that first year when we realized that whatever solution was coming, it was going to be a long-term solution,” Kenneth says. “Our mother wanted us to go back to school, telling us we couldn’t put our lives on hold. It could be three weeks, a month or 10 years. The longer you put your life on hold, the harder it becomes to re-adjust when it ends. You no longer have a sense of routine in life. There was a lot of wisdom in that. You can’t hold your breath for an entire year.” M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
Dorothea Morefield became somewhat of a national spokesperson for the hostage families — she was the go-to interview on the West Coast when the news outlets had updates. Kenneth says his mother was both intelligent and articulate and most importantly, willing to talk. The resolve of Richard Morefield and his family was a product of tragedy from three years earlier. In 1976, the Morefields’ oldest child, Rick Jr., a college freshman, was one of four people murdered during an armed holdup at a Roy Rogers Restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia. Richard Morefield would later say in a news conference that losing his son “forced me to make the decision that I was going to cope. There was nothing more they could do emotionally to me.” Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as the 40th president on Jan. 20, 1981. The following day, the hostages were released, and Richard Morefield was sent home. While the ordeal ripped some families apart and led to years of psychiatric care for others, the Morefields were able to achieve as much normalcy as they could have hoped for over the next 29 years. “My brother Dan once surprised a lot of people by saying Iran was neither the highest nor the lowest points of his life,” Kenneth says. “I think my dad felt that way, too. Yes, there were some scars — physical and psychological — that never healed. A psychologist once told my mom that my father had the profile of a person best equipped to deal with that situation.” The first was his age: 51. Kenneth’s age today. That number allows Kenneth to better understand his father’s mindset in 1979. “[Fifty-one] means you’ve lived your life. You’ve had some achievements,” he says. “He was educated. Capable of understanding the big picture. He’d had some professional success, and he’d been through tragedy before.” A reporter once asked his father if given the choice, knowing what he knew, would he still have gone to Tehran? “Who’d say ‘yes’ to that, right?” Kenneth says. “But my father said something surprising: ‘There’s not enough money in the world to pay me to do it again. But having been through it and survived, I wouldn’t trade it. I wouldn’t give it up.’ “I later asked him what he meant by that, and I processed it as it’s important to look forward. It’s another big lesson I was able to take from all of this.” BILLY LIGGETT

Grant to fund national study to improve health in rural communities The health of rural America is at the heart of a Campbell study sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest public health funder. The foundation awarded Campbell a grant to fund an 18-month national exploration — the Rural Philanthropic Analysis — designed to create, identify and enhance ideas and insights to improve the impact of charitable organizations when it comes to supporting healthy, equitable rural communities. The lead project director is Allen Smart, former senior vice president and interim president of the North Carolina-based Kate B. Reynolds Trust. “My experience says that philanthropy can be a critical part of helping communities support better health for their residents,” Smart said. “This project will help advance the knowledge base around effective rural philanthropy and help inform better and more effective investments going forward.” The $730,248 grant allows the project to run through December 2018. RWJF generates roughly $400 million in grants nationally each year to “build a national culture of health, enabling everyone in America to live longer, healthier lives."

You haunt coffee shops, sitting near the front for the reading. When the mic opens for you, the espresso machine howls, and you deliver a last line no one recognizes. The blue glow of cell phones ghost the audience, bleaching them down to skeletons. At home, you slump a shoulder against the language, push hard, and climb again. Like Dickinson. Your dirty clothes lump like burial mounds, and scraps fossilize on the dishes. The only warmth is the cat who slips through the shadows, never allowing you to touch her. — “Poet Laureate” by Campbell Online adjunct literature professor Ty Stumpf, who published his first book of poems, Suburban Burn, in March.

A summer spent tracking elephants, providing solar power in South Africa
aniel Taylor wins the “What I Did This Summer” contest. And it’s not even close. Taylor, a sophomore mechanical engineering student at Campbell, spent much of his summer in South Africa developing, measuring and tracking systems on elephants in the savannah and creating a solar-powered lighting system for a poor community. In his work with the elephants, Taylor was in charge of developing a method of recording and evaluating elephants in the African bush. The GPS systems are being used to analyze the learning progress of elephants and the impact of different conditions such as terrain, wind and humidity. Working up close with the mammoth creatures was exciting, Taylor says, but his work providing solar power to the people of Vingerkraal, a poor community north of Johannesburg and home to Namibian
war refugees, proved more rewarding. “I am partnering with a Duke student to teach the locals the basics of electricity and soldering while also meeting the lighting need,” Taylor told Campbell Magazine in an email from South Africa. In addition to teaching community leaders electricity basics and how to solder, they handed out 250 solar-powered light systems that will allow homes to have a focused light for children to study by and two other lights for general use. “We are looking to teach the community a new skill,” Taylor adds, “while also giving them something they need — light. After learning how electricity works, they understand the need for soldering, which allows them to better comprehend the process. We are providing a platform for these young people to accept responsibility and lead.”

Construction begins on new admissions, financial aid center
Wendy B. Scott, former dean and current professor of law at Mississippi College, joined the Campbell Law faculty as a distinguished visiting professor for the fall academic semester. Scott teaches two sections of Civil Procedure I and a seminar on Native American Law. She served as the eighth dean of Mississippi College School of Law from 2014-16, standing as the first African-American to hold that role. • Campbell was named North Carolina’s safest college or university campus in a report released this year by Your Local Security, an ADT affiliate. The rankings were based on low crime rates and programs designed to provide on-campus protection and relied on data and statistics provided by the U.S. Department of Education and the FBI. • Campbell and Harnett County celebrated the opening of the new Campbell Convenience Site in the spring. The site offers household trash collection and commingled recycling, as well as book and textile recycling at its location less than a quarter-mile from campus. The new site features self-contained compactors for trash and recycling, which are more sanitary than traditional containers. • The School of Osteopathic Medicine had the highest percentage of recent graduates match into family medicine residencies in the state this year, according to the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians. Of the 150 inaugural graduates of the School of Medicine who participated in the 2017 National Resident Matching Program, 20 percent of those new physicians matched into family medicine residency programs. • The School of Engineering has established its first two national engineering student organizations since launching last fall. The Society of Women Engineers and the National Society of Professional Engineers/Professional Engineers of North Carolina respectively formally approved Campbell’s chapters, providing students access to a community of professionals. 20 SUMMER 2017
n the early 1900s, Buies Creek Academy founder J.A. Campbell recruited Bernard F.

Meeting rooms and interview rooms in the center will look out over the Academic Circle, facing Campbell’s iconic Kivett Hall and D. Rich Buildings.
Over a century later, the McLeod name is now synonymous with recruitment at Campbell University. This summer, the University celebrated the start of construction on the Bernard F. McLeod Sr. Admissions & Financial Aid Center with generations of the McLeod family — including Bernard Jr., a 1948 Campbell College graduate — on hand.
“We wanted a place that would be welcoming … a real family-centered location,” said Vice President for Business and Treasurer Jim Roberts. “It had to be a place that was professional as we bring people in, and it had to be a place that was spirited and steeped in Campbell tradition. Those were the basic tenets we wanted as we began planning this building.”
“The McLeod family’s service to Campbell has been exceptional and will be remembered for years to come,” said Thomas J. Keith, chairman of the Board of Trustees whose family has also supported Campbell for generations (Keith Hills bears his family’s name). “This building will be an iconic structure and a one-stop shop for the enrollment process at Campbell. It will be the first impression for most students here and a wonderful one, to be sure.” Construction on the new center is set to begin Sept. 18, and the building is expected to be ready for use by the fall 2018 semester. It will be located in Campbell’s Academic Circle, between Butler Chapel and the future spot for the 100,000-plus square-foot student union. The building will be home to the admissions
Speakers stood under a tent where the center’s visitor parking lot will soon sit. Behind them, the grass was marked in orange and white outlines showing where offices and waiting rooms on the first floor would sit. Admissions employees posed for photos in their future offices after the ceremony. “The Campbell experience, it all begins with admissions,” said Assistant Vice President for Admissions Jason Hall. “When interviewing potential members of our team, I tell them we’re continually selling Campbell, and the most important part of the student experience begins in our office. It’s the first impression. The atmosphere of hospitality and love for the University sets the tone for their visit.” BILLY LIGGETT

'Sound of the Sandhills' slated to receive marching orders by 2018
oon the familiar rumble from the Sound of the Sandhills won’t be limited to its dedicated section of bleachers at Barker-Lane Stadium. The Fighting Camels stadium and pep bands are slated to hit the field as a full fledged marching band in next year. "When football returned to Campbell, we had the opportunity to start the Sound of the Sandhills Stadium Band adding to the Campbell Bands program, while dreaming of the day that the Stadium Band might become a marching band,” said Director of Bands and Instrumental Studies Charles Dwayne Wilson. “In fall 2018, under the direction of Director of Athletic Bands Andy Smith, that dream is becoming a reality.” The band will work on laying its foundation during football season this fall with auditions, rehearsals and show design. The marching band will officially launch when football moves to scholarship play and the Big South Conference in August 2018. Wilson says the marching band will expand opportunities for member recruitment, university service and community service.
is palpable. Several members of the band returned home from an international concert series over the summer expanding the reach of the program before marching gets underway. The Wind Symphony performed by invitation at the Mittelrhein Musik Festival in St. Goar, Germany, and the Beethoven House in Bonn, Germany. Campbell’s Jazz Ensemble performed in Cologne, Germany, after a stint in Washington, D.C., in June. Over the past 18 years, the program has grown from 27 members scattered across concert performances and basketball games to 160 members playing in 10 groups. Not a bad return on investment for the small leadership team that oversees it. Now that Wilson's band is back home, its eyes are set on the future and the founding of the Sound of the Sandhills Marching Band. “Next fall, you will hear us coming,” he says. “We’ll start at the Fine Arts building and march across campus energizing the crowd. It’ll be a great addition to the Game Day experience in Buies Creek.”’ LEAH WHITT

• The American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation voted to grant Campbell's School of Osteopathic Medicine full accreditation status in April. Accreditation status is the highest level of accreditation awarded, and confers all rights and privileges of accreditation. “Achieving full accreditation of our medical school is the glowing result of more than five years of tremendous work,” said Dr. Mark Hammond, vice president for academic affairs and provost at Campbell. “We celebrate this pinnacle achievement and are extremely grateful for all who made it possible." • The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation announced in June that Campbell is one of 16 providers from 10 states and the District of Columbia to receive accreditation for their educator preparation programs. The spring 2017 review by the CAEP Accreditation Council increased to 50 the total number of providers approved under the CAEP teacher preparation standards — rigorous, nationally recognized standards that were developed to ensure excellence in educator preparation programs. • Campbell Law Assistant Professor Zachary Bolitho was appointed to a position in the U.S. Department of Justice in June. Bolitho took leave from the Campbell Law faculty this summer to serve as counsel to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The Deputy Attorney General is second in command at the U.S. Department of Justice behind Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Bolitho will advise Rosenstein on a number of legal and policy issues.

It's always Sunni
Sunni Sky's a tradition now spanning a generation
unni Sky’s was still a relatively new business in 2006 when owner Scott Wilson decided to try something unique to appeal to his “hot sauce crazy” friends. The result was Cold Sweat — a fiery three-pepper concoction so hot it required a legal waiver from anyone wanting to try it.
during their four years in Buies Creek, but an essential part of their Campbell experience as well. Incoming freshmen get their first taste during their summer orientations or during Welcome Week, where Wilson’s crew sets up a tent or truck on campus as they’ve done for well over a decade now.
A feature on Cold Sweat soon appeared in the Raleigh News & Observer, and business got a nice boost from the exposure. But when the Associated Press picked up the N&O story and sent it to every newspaper and radio and TV station in the world, Sunni Sky’s went viral (before “viral” was cool).
“I remember our first orientation, and it was just me and my daughter with nothing but a cooler and a few scoops, serving 200 people,” Wilson recalls. “We’ve refined the science of handling large events a little more by now.”
“I got a lot of attention for horrible ice cream,” says Wilson, who named his business after his children Sunni and Skylar back when they were 7 and 9 years old (they’re 21 and 24 now). “It was insane. We were known in Australia and China, and business just got out of control. I couldn’t wait to get rid of the Cold Sweat tub, to be honest.” Cold Sweat put Wilson and his business on the map, but it’s been the other 130plus flavors over the years that have made the small business just north of Angier on N.C. 55 the go-to place for ice cream and milkshakes when the weather calls for something cool. And they’re what’s made Sunni Sky’s not only a popular stop for Campbell students
The essential flavors — vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan, cookies and cream — are all there, but Sunni Sky’s distinguishes itself with the unique offerings. A hot day in June this year offered lemongrass, bacon and black licorice, among others you won’t find in a Baskin-Robbins. Wilson says “word of mouth” is his biggest marketing tool (he doesn’t do much advertising), and he thinks that plays a big part in why his product has become a “must” for Campbell students. “We’re a family business. We’ve had proposals in here, and we’ve even had a few employees who are now married,” Wilson says. “There’s a big father who comes in all the time and sits down at the kiddie table with is little girl. Those moments, that’s what’s really important to me.” BILLY LIGGETT
School of Engineering a leader when it comes female faculty ratio
t 83 percent, Campbell's School of Engineering has one of the nation's highest percentages of female engineering faculty in the nation, the school reported this summer. “We have taken advantage of national networks to recruit top faculty, including those that are likely to reach out to large numbers of women and other underrepresented groups,” says founding Dean Jenna Carpenter, a national voice for women in STEM fields and the need for better diversity in engineering. Adds student Kristen Powell, president of the student Society of Women Engineers chapter: “This will show potential students and people that Campbell has a unique program in that we are leading the way in diversity. Some places say they want more diversity in STEM, but in reality, they are stuck in their ways. Campbell is leading the way.”

The First Lady Kristin Cooper (’82 Law) enters her new role in the Governor’s Mansion with a fresh spirit, advocacy in mind BY LEAH WHITT | PHOTOS BY LISSA GOTWALS
he North Carolina Executive Mansion sits northeast of the hustle of downtown Raleigh in Burke Square, one of five green spaces included in the capital city’s original plans. Drawn up by William Christmas, the surveyor envisioned a city landscape much like Savannah, Georgia, that included multi-acre public plots dotted throughout the city for residents to enjoy nature. Since then, Union Square became the state’s capitol building, Cashwell Square became the School for the Deaf and Blind and Burke Square became home to the governor at the insistence of Gov. Thomas Jordan Jarvis in 1883. This lesson in state history is one of the first things we receive upon entering the mansion from their tour guides. However, on an unseasonably warm morning in May, North Carolina’s First Lady Kristin Cooper is the tour guide revealing the history of her new home. And she’s a bold, fun tour guide. On the way in, she jumps onto the rope swing hanging from the large magnolia tree out front, much to her chief of staff’s chagrin. Standing on the low swing in her wedges, throwing her whole self into building momentum, she laughs. “Honey, I can do whatever I want,” she yells, but looks over at the State Trooper keeping an eye on the group and quickly returns to solid ground.

Childhood hunger. Literacy. Foster care. The arts. Child abuse and neglect. She wants to bring to light how these difficult issues are connected and affect the social and emotional health of children in North Carolina. And she’s hitting the ground running.
She’s a blend of the proper Southern hostess and a rebel. She offers refreshments to her guests, but not before ushering us through a door to a closed-off, official-looking area that houses the kitchen and security offices. Half-sweet, half-unsweet tea in hand, she continues rattling off facts about the massive home and pointing out details in the front parlors. She shares the upper floors with her husband, Gov. Roy Cooper, two cats and until the night before, their dog Chloe. In the Gentlemen’s Parlor, which is a striking contrast to the Ladies’ Parlor across the foyer, she points out the rug. It honors the history of North Carolina with depictions of the state’s pivotal moments in each of its corners. 28 SUMMER 2017
There’s Desoto from his 1540 exploration of the Appalachians in the far left corner, the beloved Old Well from the opening of the state’s first public university in 1795 to the right, the Wright brothers’ biplane in the far right corner, and the ship sent by Sir Walter Raleigh himself to establish the first colony on Roanoke Island to the left. She says she’s grateful for the snow in January because that gave her time to dig up old notes about the home and learn its history. And she continues with the tour as if we came to see the house and not her, pausing briefly in the gilded ballroom. “The school groups always love this room because it’s covered in gold,” she says in a
way that sounds like she didn’t quite buy into the extravagance of the decorator who refashioned the home in the 1970s — the same designer Jacqueline Kennedy used during her stay in the White House. And it’s true. Kristin Cooper is not extravagant. She’s a mother, a wife, a friend and a lawyer. She has hopes and dreams. She suffers through loss and disappointments. She climbs trees and plants herbs in her yard. She works hard and likes to have fun. To put it simply, she is normal. And in today’s tumultuous political landscape, being normal is refreshing.

Hangin’ with Mrs. Cooper Observations on an afternoon with North Carolina First Lady Kristin Cooper — by Leah Whitt • Details Matter | Kristin Cooper is all about the little details. When she attended an event at NC State earlier this year, she wore red. When she walked in for our interview, she had on an orange sweater with a tiny wooden camel pinned to the collar. • One Stitch at a Time | The aforementioned sweater wasn’t just any orange sweater, either. When I mentioned it, she said she couldn’t find the right color orange, so she made one herself. An avid knitter, she hosts a regular knitting circle for her friends and even held an event for World Wide Knit in Public Day on June 10. • Experiences Over Things | The firstfloor library in the Executive Mansion is the one room, besides the dining room, that is often used by the First Family and staff who work there. It’s a manly room with dark woodwork and rich, warm leather furniture. Among all the grandeur are Cooper family photos in simple black frames. Photos of pets, family adventures, and the Cooper women at the Governor’s Inauguration Ball. Signaling that a fancy frame doesn’t compare to what’s inside it. • First Pets of North Carolina | The First Family’s pets joined Facebook earlier this year. Adelaide and Alexei rule the roost as most cats do, but the pets of the Cooper daughters make appearances too. First Dog Ben belongs to Hillary and likes to photobomb family photo sessions, and Natalie cares for an orchid mantis named Daisy. • Fitness Protection Program | She’s dedicated to her Fitbit. While she can’t ditch her security detail, she hits her daily 10,000 step goal by donning a disguise and going for a walk around town. Ninety percent of the time no one recognizes her. • Fish and Feathers | After our tour through the gardens, she walked over to the koi fish pond and greeted them as friends. Noting that they used to have six fish but a hawk snatched one. An added benefit of top-notch security, knowing what happens to the koi fish. • By Any Other Name | The grounds crew at the mansion insisted on planting two types of roses this spring when they were working on updating the landscape: the Oklahoma rose, an homage to Kristin’s home state, and the Kristin rose.

up in Oklahoma City with her three sisters. After earning her undergraduate degree from the University of Oklahoma, she enrolled in law school because it was the one thing that blended her interests of history, writing and reading together that didn’t require her to become a professor. “My first day of law school, I remember the dean saying that a law degree was the last refuge of the generalist,” she recalls. “I think that’s true in some ways. In law school, you get the closest thing to a classical education.” After graduating Campbell Law School in 1982 with her Juris Doctor, she worked as a staff attorney for the legislature in North Carolina. That’s how she met her husband, a legislator from Nash County who would go on to become the state’s 75th governor.
Doing the Right Thing The role of First Lady at any political level is a strange one. There is no job description or hiring process. The only way to apply for it is by showing unwavering support of a significant other. The only how-to guide available is the example others have left in their wake. Ferrel Guillory, a political analyst and director of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Program on Public Life, puts it simply as a role without a script. “North Carolinians, in general, like their governors to put on a blue suit and a tie and get to work,” he said. “That’s the way [Roy Cooper] is. “The early indications are that his family are political assets. And Kristin is positioning herself to enhance the issues he believes in.” But Kristin Cooper is doing more than standing by her man. Cooper stepped back from the courtroom years ago to focus her attention on raising their three daughters, and there hasn’t been a true administrative Office of the First Lady of North Carolina in years. So she’s embracing the unique opportunity to create a new standard in her time at the mansion. Childhood hunger. Literacy. Foster care. The arts. Child abuse and neglect. This is what she wants to advocate for in her new position. She wants to bring to light how these difficult issues are connected and affect the
social and emotional health of children in North Carolina. And she’s hitting the ground running. In May, she partnered with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to kick off “Stop Summer Hunger,” a program designed to prevent nearly 300,000 students from going hungry while school is out for the summer. She also spoke to the graduating class at St. Mary’s in Raleigh, where her eldest daughter completed high school in 2011. “This troubled world needs your light, your voice, your spirit,” she said to the 77 young women graduating that day. Urging them to resist the trappings of comparison in today’s social media-driven world, she joked that even she wanted the life she portrayed on social media. In June, she visited the Chapel Hill Public Library to announce a federal grant totaling $120,000. To say she’s keeping busy is an understatement. While most of her appearances fall in line with her husband’s political stances, she genuinely cares about the issues at hand. For instance, her dedication to North Carolina’s Guardian ad Litem program spans over a decade — using her law degree to advocate for at-risk foster children in the court system, so they don’t become abandoned or neglected. As she walks through the gardens at the Governor’s Mansion, she talks with passion about how farm-to-table restaurants impact health and the economy and how important it is to provide healthy meals to those in need. Back inside the mansion, she sits down in the naturally-lit Morning Room and shares her love for reading and memories of reading books like Four on the Shore and Dr. Seuss’s classics with her girls as they grew up. The memories of her daughters asking her to read with them is why reducing illiteracy in young children is so important to her. She says a study from the University of Chicago recently stated that poor children enter school having heard 30 million fewer words than children in middle to upper-class homes. “One organization we’ve really gotten involved with is Reach Out and Read and battling this cultural notion that children

don’t need books until they can actually read.” Reach Out and Read partners with doctors to “prescribe” books to encourage families to read together and educate parents on the developmental importance of reading aloud. This is something the Cooper family incorporated with their own children 20 years ago. The impact was brought to attention as recently as this past Mother’s Day when her daughter Natalie mentioned reading aloud every night. Two pages for her mom and one page for her. Along with reading comes a passion for the arts for the Coopers. Her daughters have joined her on the stage of community theaters in North Carolina in productions of “Camelot” and “The Diary of Anne Frank.”

Kristin also spends hours behind the scenes making costumes and serving on the Board of Directors at the Raleigh Little Theatre. On the way out of the mansion, she stops in the threshold of the dining room. Some staff members are just sitting down to eat lunch, checking their phones and planning a joint baby shower for three troopers who will be fathers soon. Pointing out the impressive crystal chandelier, she says it was delivered in a nondescript box unassembled with no instructions in the 1950s. It was a gift from the Horowitz family who fled Nazi Germany in World War II and landed in Asheville, North Carolina.
According to the house notes, the chandelier was one of the few family heirlooms the Horowitz’s were able to recover after the war. They gifted it to the state for its kindness to them as refugees. She pauses. Her story is not a political statement on immigration, but more of a comment on doing the right thing. At the end of the day, that’s who Kristin Cooper is. She’s a mother, a wife and a friend who focuses on doing the right thing.

lot happens in the on-deck circle. It’s where a hitter takes practice swings before his turn at the plate. It’s where he eyes the pitcher’s mechanics and speed up close — a short window to get his timing down pat. Waiting in the wings before stepping on the main stage, the circle allows him a chance to take in his surroundings and mentally prepare for the spotlight. The Buies Creek Astros are in the on-deck circle. And when they take the field in April 2019 in their brand new, $33 million-dollar stadium in front of 5,000-plus fans, they’ll no longer have Creek in their name. They'll be the Fayetteville Fatbacks. Or the Fly Traps. Or the Jumpers or Wood Dogs or Woodpeckers. Whatever the name and the accompanying mascot, the team will be the hottest ticket in the Carolina League. They will have stepped up to the plate. By then, the Buies Creek Astros will be a memory. A Wikipedia entry. The answer to a tough baseball trivia question. A rare collectible hat or jersey on Ebay. But that’s 20 months away. For now, these are an important two years for the Houston Astros, an organization that has climbed from the cellar of the American League to the top of the standings. And thanks to its farm system, they look like a team built to stay at the top. These two years are important to this community, too.
34 SUMMER 2017
When it is all said and done, Buies Creek, Campbell University and Jim Perry Stadium will have hosted roughly 130 days and nights of pro baseball in its purest form. Families eating hot dogs and groups of local Little Leaguers chasing foul balls on warm summer evenings. Fans getting an up-close (really up-close) look at future stars like Kyle Tucker, Jason Martin, Forrest Whitley and Franklin Perez. Take it in. Smell the peanuts. There will never be another summer like these two.
The right fit. Even in the world of Minor League Baseball — where rural America, ballparks built near cornfields and intimate, familiar crowds are attributes woven into the fibers of the game — Buies Creek is small. It’s not technically the smallest — it’s actually 12 times larger than Sauget, Illinois (population 250), home of the Gateway Grizzlies of the independent Frontier League. But Sauget is 10 miles from the thriving metropolis of St. Louis, Missouri. The Gateway Arch can be seen from its ballpark. In other words, Buies Creek is no Sauget. The tallest structure seen from its ballpark is Kivett Hall, the centerpiece of Campbell University. You have to drive 40 miles north or south to find anything resembling a city. Buies Creek doesn’t have a stoplight. It’s not even technically a town (it’s a “census-designated place,” by definition). Yet there it was on Nov. 17, 2016, site for the kind of announcement many towns and cities would give their Main Streets for. There stood Reid Ryan — son of Hall of Fame pitching legend Nolan Ryan and president of the Houston Astros — announcing the arrival of professional baseball. The Buies Creek Astros.
CAROLINA LEAGUE The Buies Creek Astros belong to the Carolina League, an Advanced-A Minor League Baseball affiliation formed in 1945, just after World War II. Many famous Major Leaguers have started their careers in the league, including Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, Barry Bonds, Rod Carew, Dwight Gooden, Chipper Jones, Joe Morgan, Zack Greinke, Andruw Jones, Darryl Strawberry, Bernie Williams and Carl Yastrzemski. The 1988 film “Bull Durham” — starring Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins — featured the Durham Bulls, who were at the time members of the Carolina League. The current league consists of 10 teams (Major League affiliate in parenthesis):
NORTHERN DIVISION • Frederick Keys (Baltimore) • Lynchburg Hillcats (Cleveland) • Potomac Nationals (Washington) • Salem Red Sox (Boston) • Wilmington Blue Rocks (Kansas City)
SOUTHERN DIVISION • Buies Creek Astros (Houston) • Carolina Mudcats (Milwaukee) • Down East Wood Ducks (Texas) • Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Chi Cubs) • Winston-Salem Dash (Chi Sox)

SMALL-TOWN BASEBALL Buies Creek isn’t the smallest town in America with a professional baseball team, but they’re close. Sauget and Loch Sheldrake are both home to independent teams, making Buies Creek currently the smallest town to host a team associated with a Major League affiliate: • Sauget, Illinois: 159 • Loch Sheldrake, N.Y. 1,910 • Buies Creek, North Carolina: 2,942 • Zebulon, North Carolina: 4,433 • Bisbee, Arizona: 5,308 • Bluefield, Virginia: 5,444 • Wappingers Falls, N.Y.: 5,522 • Moosic, Pennsylvania: 5,719 • Alpine, Texas: 5,905 • Princeton, West Virginia: 6,432 • Old Orchard Beach, Maine: 8,624 • Trinidad, Colorado: 8,771 • Pulaski, Virginia: 8,909 • Kodak, Tennessee: 9,273
A team named for the nation’s prominent space program located in a “place” that covers roughly 2.2 square miles of mostly tobacco fields (and, of course, a university). The scene that November was surreal. Astros executives, local elected officials and Campbell administration donned blue and orange ballcaps and shook hands at home plate in Jim Perry Stadium. Camel cheerleaders unveiled a very Astros-looking logo with “BC” where the big “H” should be. As strange as it looked, it all somehow felt right. Even the weather on that mid-November afternoon felt more like a warm early-season game in May. For an organization that had spent the previous eight seasons in Lancaster, California — a city on the western edge of the Mojave Desert where average highs in the summer range from 95 to 100 degrees — North Carolina was an oasis. Last October, the Astros officially announced it was buying a Minor League franchise in Fayetteville — a move made to help streamline its farm system to control player movement more efficiently (the organization runs Rookie League and Short Season A teams in the east and its Class-A squad in Iowa). Before the purchase, Ryan and David Lane, Buies Creek’s general manager, were scouting cities and towns near Fayetteville to host the team while the new ballpark was being built.

Perry Stadium stood out immediately. “When we first came to Campbell, we just fell in love with it,” said Ryan, whose father pitched one of his record-setting seven no-hitters against Jim Perry in 1973. “This is a world-class facility, and so we targeted it as the spot we wanted to be at. Luckily for us, we found an administration and an athletics director happy and willing to work with us.” Ryan said part of the negotiating was “finding the best interests Campbell and the Astros.” When the deal was made, Campbell was in the process of adding to its stadium more seating, in-ground dugouts, a viewing deck, new locker rooms and coaches’ offices, and a state-of-the-art scoreboard. What it lacked was a professional-grade playing surface. The Astros fixed that by providing new synthetic turf — a surface that “replicates a natural baseball field’s look and playability” — installed in January. After some creative scheduling to allow for two teams to share one stadium from April to mid-May, the inaugural season of the Buies Creek Astros was set. The excitement from Campbell’s side was palpable. “Just the entire relationship with Houston and what this team can mean for our program is immeasurable,” Athletics Director Bob Roller said on Opening Day in April. “Every day in the New York Times, the USA Today and across the nation, ‘Buies Creek’ will appear in
the standings. And the games themselves will introduce a lot of people to Campbell’s campus. It’s great exposure.” For Campbell President J. Bradley Creed, having the Astros so close was extra special. He grew up a few hours from Houston and attended his first Major League game in the Astrodome as a kid in the 1960s.

Love of the game. It’s a 350-step walk from their cramped locker rooms on the lower level of the Pope Convocation Center to the outfield gate at Jim Perry Stadium. The new rubber and artificial grass turf — though ideal when it comes to ground balls, diving and base running — traps heat so that 90-degree day games in June feel about 10 degrees hotter. And there’s only so much Moe’s, Chick-fil-A and Subway a player or coach can eat before they’re longing for more dining-out options. But it could be worse. It could always be worse. Catcher Anthony Hermelyn played Single-A ball last year in Davenport, Iowa, infamous for the smells emanating from the nearby Purina dog food and Oscar Mayer meat production plants both within a mile of the ballpark there.

“It makes this native Texan proud,” Creed said. “You’ll have local folks introduced to this organization, and you’ll have Astros fans around the world learning about this community and this University by following their team. I couldn’t be any happier with this partnership.”

Lancaster, California, where many on the Astros roster played a season ago before the team left for North Carolina, is a desert town. Had the team stayed, they would have experienced a record-breaking 110-degree day in June this year. And for pitchers, Lancaster was a nightmare.
GOING FAST Campbell junior Noelle Beattie has worked the small merchandise booth at every home game this season, and she’s noticed one thing in her time spent in the small trailer: “Whatever they’re buying, everybody wants the name ‘Buies Creek’ on it.” Because the Astros’ stay in the Creek will only last two years, merchandise for the team will become a rarity. The team’s media and event coordinator Ricky Ray says he’s shipped hats and uniforms to New York, California and Texas, among other states. “I’m sure they’ll pop up on eBay one day,” he says. “But I can see why people want it. It’ll be a collector’s item, and you have to admit it’s a clean and classy look.”
“The wind always blew out, and the air was super thin,” recalled pitcher Riley Ferrell. “From a pitching standpoint, we love being here.” When the Lancaster roster learned last year it was heading east, they had a tool better than Google to learn about their new home. They had former Campbell standout pitcher Ryan Thompson, who pitched 20 games for Lancaster in 2016 before being called up to AA Corpus Christi this season. “Ryan loved it here, and he was excited for us,” says pitcher Justin Ferrell. “He told us it was a nice, relaxed little town and that we’d have fun.” Though it’s small — both the community and the locker rooms — and short on nightlife, Buies Creek has been a welcome change for many on the Astros’ roster. While some on the team have rented apartments closer to Raleigh in towns like Fuquay-Varina or Garner, the majority live a baseball’s throw from the stadium or a few miles out in Lillington. Off days in the middle of a homestand are few and far between in a 140-game schedule, but on those rare occasions, the players have played golf at Keith Hills, tried out tubing on the Cape Fear and have made short group trips to Sunni Sky’s Ice Cream in Angier. “No, it’s not been terribly exciting,” Hermelyn says with a grin. “At the same time, when there’s not much to do around here, you become closer as friends and as a team.” It’s the ideal situation for head coach Omar Lopez, a former Minor League player and scout who’s been a manager in the Astros’ farm system since 2008.
38 SUMMER 2017
“I love it, because as a manager, a quiet town is exactly what I’m looking for,” he says. “The players stay out of trouble, and they focus on baseball.” And focus they do. When they reach the Minor Leagues, players eat, breathe and sleep baseball. From April 6 to Sept. 4 of this year, the team had exactly 12 scheduled off days, three of those in a row for the All-Star break in late June. Because of scheduling conflicts with the Camels in the spring, Buies Creek agreed to play only 62 home games (instead of 70) and 78 on the road. That meant a few more bus trips and hotel stays. But even when they’re home, there’s little time to relax. Players arrive at the convocation center around 1 p.m. on most days, earlier if they need time in the trainer’s room. At 1:30, they’re meeting with specialty coaches (pitchers and catchers in one room, infielders in another, outfielders in another), and around 2:30, they’re heading to the field for about two hours of practice — speedsters practicing their bunts, catchers running down popups and pitchers working on their windups. At 4, batting practice. By 4:15, the visiting team starts entering through the outside gate (after a similar 350-step jaunt from the arena), and at 5, the Astros head to their lockers to get in their game uniforms and grab a quick bite before heading back to the field before first pitch at 7. The average Minor League game runs three hours — so it’s usually 10 p.m. when the team heads back to the lockers and maybe 10:30 or 11 before they’re heading to their apartments (some shared with four other guys) for food, sleep and no time for anything else. “It’s not easy,” says Lopez, who’s given up his own private office during this transition and instead has a small desk in the locker room he shares with six other coaches. “But baseball is a game of adjustments, and for these players, life in professional baseball is a big adjustment. If you choose to play this game at this level, then baseball becomes your life. If you choose

to do this, then you choose to do everything you can to be your best. Not everyone here is going to play in the Major Leagues, but if they can survive this, when they go to the outside world, they’ll be mentally tough. They can do anything they want.” Hermelyn has made several adjustments in his short time in the Carolina League, including learning to share time with third-round pick and prospect Jake Rogers, who was called up to the team in mid-May. Eating habits change, he says, and it gets harder to maintain relationships with family and friends in his native Oklahoma. “But if you love baseball, it’s what you do,” he says. “If my Minor League experience has shown me anything, it’s how much I really love this game.”

" A QUIET TOWN IS EXACTLY WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR. THE PLAYERS STAY OUT OF TROUBLE AND FOCUS ON BASEBALL." — Buies Creek Astros Manager Omar Lopez
beisbol y vida. For players like Franklin Perez, Carlos Sierra, Hector Perez and Yoanys Quiala, Minor League Baseball is as much about adapting to the United States and American culture as it is working on a split seam fastball or learning to hit a slider. Latino players make up about 27 to 30 percent of today’s professional baseball rosters, and many arrive in the rookie or Single-A leagues knowing very little to no English. Fourteen of the 32 players who make up the current Buies Creek roster are foreign-born young Latino men representing the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, Panama and Mexico. The Astros organization is one of a handful in Major League Baseball to offer programs to help players learn English and adapt to their
new environment. And on days when the Buies Creek club is in town for evening home games, its Latino players sit in a small classroom in D. Rich Hall with Campbell University foreign language adjunct professor Brian Thomas to not only learn the language, but American culture and important things like money management and social skills. On this day, Thomas is joined by Doris Gonzalez, the organization’s coordinator of player acculturation and language development who has helped current Major League All-Stars like Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve of Venezuela and shortstop Carlos Correa of Puerto Rico during her career. Gonzalez routinely checks in on the programs at all levels of the Astros organization and has developed a close bond with many of her players, some of whom greet her with hugs and treat her like their mother. “I myself was an English language learner and an immigrant, so I know how hard it is for them,” says Gonzalez. “They work twice as hard as others on the team, because not only are they working on the field, they’re taking these classes, studying and constantly learning and adapting. It can be tough. So I’m heavily invested in them, and I care about their futures.” One particular class focuses on house problems — who to call when the electricity goes out, the toilet is clogged or the roof is leaking. Gonzalez and Thomas go over the English names for these repairmen — electrician, plumber and roofer — and get the players to stand in front of the class and perform mock phone calls in their best English. Some of the players zone out, no doubt the result of fatigue from the previous night’s game, a loss to the Salem Red Sox that went well beyond the typical 10 p.m. finish time. But most are happy to be doing this. Laughing as they learn. Taking notes. Three days earlier, they spent time at nearby Buies Creek Elementary School reading to kindergarteners and first
M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
graders, simultaneously sharpening their own skills and contributing to the community. Gonzalez says the biggest struggle for most incoming Latino players isn’t the language, but things like nutrition and housing. “We’ve found that a lot of players really struggle with not having the foods they grew up with,” she says. “Many simply don’t enjoy eating American food. So a lot of them lose weight or don’t eat healthy enough to keep up with the demands of the sport. They miss their momma’s Dominican cooking.” To assist with housing, Gonzalez helps find host families in the areas surrounding the Astros’ Minor League teams across the country. She says the team in Buies Creek benefits from having a manager from Venezuela who speaks their language and understands their struggles. “Omar Lopez is one of my favorite coaches,” she says. “He’s just so committed to their wellbeing. I truly admire him.”
COMING TO AMERICA Latino players make up about 27 to 30 percent of today’s professional baseball rosters, and many arrive in the rookie or Single-A leagues knowing very little to no English. Fourteen of the 32 players who make up the current Buies Creek roster are foreign-born young Latino men representing the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, Panama and Mexico. The Houston Astros today feature two of the top Latin-born players in Major League Baseball in second baseman Jose Altuve (Venezuela) and shortstop Carlos Correa (Puerto Rico). Altuve played in his fifth All-Star game in 2017, and Correa became the first shortstop in Astros history to start in the Mid-Summer Classic.
Thomas brings an acoustic guitar to this particular class, and up until about 10 minutes before it let out, he never reveals why. Finally, he straps on the guitar and sits in front of the class, striking the first familiar chords of the folk blues song made famous by The Animals in 1964, “House of the Rising Sun.” There is a house in New Orleans, They call the Rising Sun ... By the second verse, the players — each with a lyric sheet in both English and Spanish in front of them — are singing along. By the end, the song is echoing throughout the halls of the mostly empty D. Rich building, and Thomas is singing like the solo act in a concert hall. The end of the class, however, is bittersweet, as Gonzalez is heading to Florida the next day. She catches a few players at the door to congratulate them on their progress and assures them she’ll be checking in on them.

“Not all of these guys will make this their career, so when baseball’s done for them, they’ll at least have these skills to fall back on,” she says. “I tell them that whatever happens next, English is going to help them. I had one student write me from Panama telling me they got a job because they were bilingual. As a teacher, hearing things like that means everything to me.”
road to stardom. It’s Media Day at Jim Perry Stadium just before the season opener, and Kyle Tucker — a 20-year-old power-hitting lefty picked fifth overall by the Astros in the 2015 draft — is approached by a television reporter and cameraman from Raleigh. Already a millionaire (he received a $4 million signing bonus when drafted) and the No. 11 top prospect in the entire game according to Baseball America, Tucker is asked by the somewhat oblivious reporter if he’s excited to be playing in Fayetteville when the stadium opens in 2019. Tucker won’t be in Fayetteville in 2019. In fact, his time in Buies Creek only lasted eight weeks after he tore up Carolina League pitchers with a .554 slugging percentage, 9 home runs, 43 RBI and 13 stolen bases in just 177 at-bats. In late May, Tucker was called up to Double-A Corpus Christi, where he has 8 home runs and 20 RBI in his first 32 games. If all goes as planned, he’ll be in Houston in 2019, joining what’s currently the best team in baseball. Or, as happens with many top prospects in a winning organization, he may be trade bait for a team in need of a solid bat down the line.

Tucker smiles when asked about Fayetteville in two years. Then — like a professional — he gives the soundbite he knows the reporter is looking for: “Yeah, I’m anxious to see how that stadium turns out. I’m sure it’ll look awesome.” If Astros fans can claim anything when the team’s two years are up in Buies Creek, it’s that they saw good baseball played by some of the league’s top rising stars. Outfielder Jason Martin joined Tucker in Corpus Christi in May, but not before hitting three home runs in one game in a 12-6 win at Myrtle Beach on May 7. Opening Day starting pitcher Akeem Bostick needed just three starts in Buies Creek before getting the call to Double-A after going 2-1 with a 1.86 ERA. Yoanys Quiala went 5-1 with a 2.31 ERA in Buies Creek before his promotion, and Nick Hernandez pitched in 24 games as a reliever, earning 9 saves and 1.59 ERA. None remain. As it typically happens to organizations with a strong farm system, Buies Creek hasn’t suffered too much from the losses. Hernandez, Franklin Perez and outfielder Myles Straw represented Buies Creek in the Carolina League All-Star game in June. And for each Corpus call-up, it seems another prospect is waiting in the wings. Catcher Jake Rogers, the Astros’ third-round pick in the 2016 draft, was promoted to Buies Creek on June 1 and hit 8 home runs in his first 40 games after the promotion. And then there’s 2016 first-round pick Forrest Whitley, a 19-year-old kid from San Antonio who received a $3 million signing bonus before ever suiting up. After striking out 67 batters in 46 innings in Iowa, Whitley threw five innings of no-hit, shutout ball in his Buies Creek debut, a 6-0 win over the Potomac Nationals. Buies Creek went 37-33 in the first half of the season, finishing six games behind Myrtle Beach in the Carolina League’s South Division. They faired much better in the second half of the season, but still finished a half game behind

the Down East Wood Ducks to miss out on the postseason (despite finishing the year with the best overall record in the Carolina League's South Division, 74-65). It was a disappointing end to an otherwise successful year in Buies Creek. But for Omar Lopez — as is the case for most Minor League managers —winning is only a small part of his job. More than anything, Lopez and his coaching staff are here to develop talent. “Obviously, as a manager, you want to win as much as you can,” he says. “But as an organization, you have to have a philosophy, and player development at this level is part of it. And we have to follow that. There will be situations come up where development is more important than winning, whether it’s pitch counts or situations a hitter faces. We’re here to make these players better for down the road.”
RISING STARS Those who have attended a Buies Creek Astros game this season have witnessed future Major Leaguers. The first half of the season was dominated by top prospect Kyle Tucker, and pitching phenom Forrest Whitley joined the squad after being called up from Single-A in the summer. Below are the top three prospects who have played or are currently playing for the local squad, ordered by their Baseball America prospect rankings:
That doesn’t mean Lopez disregards winning entirely. He just has a different way of phrasing it to his players.
11. Kyle Tucker, OF: Rated the No. 11 top prospect in all of baseball, the fifthoverall pick in the 2015 draft only lasted eight weeks before being called up to Double-A. His time in Buies Creek was memorable, though. Tucker hit 9 home runs and 43 RBI in just 46 games.
“Do we have to go out and win this game tonight? No,” he says. “But we have to go out and be winners. We have to fight for everything. Do our best every single day. You do that and you put everything together, and the wins will come. And when you create a good atmosphere like that, it gets contagious. And you start picking up your teammates who aren’t doing as well, and that becomes teamwork.
32. Franklin Perez, P: Perez threw five innings of one-hit baseball in his Buies Creek debut in April. As of this publication, he’s still in North Carolina, enjoying a solid season with an ERA under 3.00, a complete game, 53 strikeouts in 54 innings and just 16 walks.
“We develop all that here and now, because at the Big League level, bottom line, it’s all about winning.”
pure baseball. The first thing you notice at a Buies Creek Astros game is the lack of things to notice. This is a line from an April 7 article on baseball in Buies Creek published by Baseball America, which sent a writer to the season opener the

58. Forrest Whitley, P: The No. 1 pick in 2016, Whitley doesn’t turn 20 until September. In his first two starts with Buies Creek, the Texas native gave up just one earned run and struck out 14 in 10 innings.
night before. And it’s true. In addition to being the smallest stadium capacity-wise in Minor League Baseball, Jim Perry Stadium is also free of the mascots and between-inning gimmicks popular in most ballparks across the nation. For some, that’s part of the charm. “For what it is, it’s excellent,” says Rick Hunt, a lifelong baseball fan who’s attended every Buies Creek Astros home game this season keeping statistics and tracking analysis for a company that sells this data to professional teams. “I’ve attended several [Carolina] Mudcats games in recent years, and in many ways, it’s better than a Mudcats game. The field’s nice, it’s a nice atmosphere, and here, unlike some ballparks, the entertainment is the ballgame. As a fan of the game, I appreciate that. Some teams go overboard with the gimmicks.” Luke Erickson of Virginia attended his first Buies Creek game in May while vacationing in Emerald Isle (a good two hours away). Erickson says he’s been to 45 to 50 Minor League parks in his lifetime, and the surface at Jim Perry Stadium — artificial turf covering everything except the pitcher’s mound — was the first of its kind he’d ever seen. “It’s definitely unique, and it’s part of what’s made this experience a good one for me so far,” says Erickson, a Potomac Nationals fan. “I think overall, they’ve got a good thing here. Where else can you pay a [$5] and sit this close to the field and see professional ballplayers? It’s a great deal.” The Astros drew a crowd of 1,117 on Opening Day, but on some nights, there are as few as 200 people in the stands. Officially, the team has drew an average crowd of 517 at home games this year. That was worst in the Carolina League by a good margin (next was Lynchburg, draws an average of 1,899 fans) and worst in all of Minor League Baseball (next was the Dunedin Blue Jays in Florida, who average 611 fans).

FAYETTEVILLE ?'S In June, the future Astros’ Fayetteville affiliate announced the Top 5 finalists for the team’s new name and mascot when it takes the field in 2019 (it will be the Buies Creek Astros until then). The Top 5 names each have a Fayetteville connection: • Fatbacks: Derived from the fat of pigs that is prevalent in Southern and French cuisine. Fatback is one of the delicious, delectable pork products that is the result of a hog roast that brings the community together, the release says. • Fly Traps: Refers to the flytrap plant native to the wetlands of the Carolinas. It’s also a baseball term — the proper way to catch fly balls. • Jumpers: A tribute to the 82nd Airborne, based at nearby Fort Bragg.
But that’s OK with the Houston Astros and Buies Creek Astros GM David Lane. The low attendance was expected. “It’s more about baseball, putting the guys in the best situation with the best facilities so they can develop and not be hindered,” Lane told the Fayetteville Observer in May. “That’s what it has been and we’re happy. Everybody’s happy about it. Drawing 1,200 a night would have been overwhelming. It would have been tough. We’d love to have it, but it’s more about the baseball.” Five-hundred people in a small stadium feels different than 500 people in a park built for 5,000. Crowds at Buies Creek games are small and intimate, but they’re also loud at the right times and supportive. According to pitcher Justin Ferrell, small crowds have their benefits. “You hear everything on the field. Everything,” Ferrell says with a laugh. “As a pitcher though, I communicate better in our ballpark. We focus more on the game. And when the fans do get loud, it seems to echo
here. The small crowds aren’t that bad.” One of the few people not in a uniform to attend every Buies Creek home game is Ricky Ray, Campbell University’s associate athletics director for external affairs and the community and media liaison for the club during its stay locally. Ray, who worked in a similar role for the Carolina Mudcats before coming to Campbell, says the attendance figures don’t tell the whole story when it comes to the community and its relationship with the team. “The community has really enjoyed having this team here,” Ray says. “Many in the area have opened their home to players and support the team at all times. The campus here has worked hard to integrate pro baseball as seamlessly as possible. And I think there will be a shared sense of pride as some of these players begin to make their way to the Majors in a couple of years. “Buies Creek will have played an important part in their journey.”

Jacob Morse ends ‘amazing’ Campbell law career with Top Gun national mock trial championship, thanks to natural ability and hours upon hours of preparation BY BILLY LIGGETT
acob Morse could see the finish line.
He’d endured four days of rigorous competition against the nation’s best and brightest future attorneys in Waco, Texas, and all that laid before him was his closing argument in the championship round of the Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition. But before his grand finale, Morse was sent to his usual break room for one last opportunity to strategize with his coach and co-counsel. Only, something was different about the room this time. In the corner, sitting on a thin, metal stand usually used for poster presentations was a giant check. Dollar amount: $10,000. In the memo line: “No points for second place.” The “pay to the order of” part was blank. “I’m trying to think about what to say to the jury, and I’m face-to-face with this giant check,” Morse says. “It was a very tangible moment. I told myself, ‘I’m here. I’ve got nothing to lose.’” Morse is smiling as he tells this story. He
M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
won, of course, ending his three years at Campbell Law School as the top student advocate attorney in the country. Recent Top Gun national champions have hailed from New York University (2015) and Yale Law School (2016). Campbell University joined that list in June, adding another notch in its belt as one of the top advocacy law programs in the nation. And for Morse, the title culminates a three-year stint at Campbell Law that even the school called “nothing short of amazing.” As a second-year law student in 2016, Morse was a member of the South Texas Mock Trial Challenge championship team, himself earning the “outstanding advocate” award. At Baylor University’s Academy of the Advocate program, he earned “best closing argument” and “best storytelling awards” from his colleagues in Scotland. And in his third year, prior to Top Gun, his team finished as runners-up in the National Civil Trial Competition in California, and he earned more solo advocate awards at the challenge in Texas.
“Jacob is just a remarkably bright individual,” says his coach, Dan Tilly, the director of advocacy and assistant law professor at Campbell Law. “And he’s just so nimble … able to adapt. You have to be extremely smart and have great courtroom savvy to succeed in these competitions, and not many students have that. And when you take someone who’s naturally talented and has the kind of work ethic he has — he puts in hundreds upon hundreds of hours of preparation — that makes him or her a very difficult person to beat.”
—— Top Gun is different from your typical “mock trial” competition. First, it’s invitation only. The 16 competitors come in with reputations of success or come from programs known for nationally for their advocacy programs. And unlike the team competitions, where students usually receive their case files weeks in advance to allow for tons of preparation and script-writing, Top Gun competitors don’t receive their cases until they arrive in Waco, 24 hours before the
C A MP B E L L M AG AZ I N E 49
first round begins. The judges at Top Gun are real current or retired judges. The juries are distinguished trial lawyers. This competition isn’t for the weak. When you meet Jacob Morse or hear him speak, you quickly realize why he’s a natural. He speaks with confidence, pausing only momentarily at times to see the words before he says them. He speaks with his hands. He invites eye contact.
A top advocacy program Jacob Morse’s title in the 2017 Top Gun Mock Trial competition only added to Campbell Law School’s growing reputation as a leading advocacy program. His win comes on the heels of a major announcement last spring that Campbell law had cracked U.S. News & World Report’s ranking list as the 21st-best advocacy program in the nation. Not only was Campbell Law the lone North Carolina law school on the list, it was the only law school located in the mid-South region. “Advocacy is our hallmark, and I am delighted to have our accomplishments finally recognized,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. Advocacy training begins in the first year at Campbell Law and continues throughout each of the three successive semesters in which students are enrolled. Advocacy training continues in the second and third years with required offerings in evidence and trial advocacy, and an array of upperlevel electives tailored to civil, criminal and alternative dispute practices. Outside of the classroom, Campbell Law’s historically strong competitive advocacy program has particularly blossomed in recent years. Since 2012 Campbell Law student advocates have collected four national championships, five national runners up, seven national semifinalists, four regional championships and 12 national individual best advocate awards. Aside from competitive success, the G. Eugene Boyce Center of Advocacy was established in September 2015 with an $8 million dollar gift. The center comprises three competitive courtrooms, conference rooms and a suite of adjoining offices. More than $450,000 in start-of-the-art technology upgrades has been recently added to the center.
Even these mannerisms are a result of experience. Morse says when he first arrived at Campbell Law after earning his undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and interning for U.S. Rep. David Price in Washington, D.C., he was green. He recalls sweating and trembling in his first mock trial competitions. “A lot of it is confidence, which some may confuse with arrogance,” he says. “Whatever you call it, you can’t enter a competition like this and believe that because someone is from Harvard, they’re going to whip your [tail]. You have to believe in yourself, and that comes with experience. It also comes with having a team that’s confident in you. I still doubt myself at times, but I’ve never had doubts that my teammates or my coach’s believed in me and thought I couldn’t win this tournament.” That coach, Tilly, and that teammate in Waco, co-counsel and classmate Casey Peaden, were “vital” in Morse’s success in the Top Gun competition. Because the packets arrive only 24 hours before the trials, and because competitors like Morse need a good six or seven hours of sleep in order to properly function the next day, Tilly and Peaden swapped pulling allnighters during those four days to pore over the files and law books and take extensive notes. “In those four days, I’d say we each put in 65 to 70 hours total,” Tilly says. “You start at 7, you compete, and if you move on, you work well into the night to prepare of the next day. You need every advantage you can get in a competition like this. Those who are willing to grind it out succeed in Top Gun.”
—— Morse joined his first mock trial teams in high school and as an undergrad at UNC, and in Chapel Hill, he even joined a pre-law 50 SUMMER 2017
group. He wasn’t exceptionally good (yet), but he did discover one thing — he loved it. The traveling with his team. The studying. Reading the “rules of evidence.” The competitions themselves. “I played football in high school, and I had to quit because of an injury,” he says. “Also, I really wasn’t that good. But my best friend’s dad owned a law firm in [his hometown of Mooresville], and that friend invited me to join the mock trial team. All I knew is it involved public speaking, but later I found that it was about tackling problems and arguing your ideas. It was fun. I fell in love with it.” Morse knew he wanted to attend law school and have a career as a litigator. Campbell Law, he says, was a no-brainer, because of its reputation and its growing advocacy program. He received a full ride as a recipient of Campbell’s first Leadership Scholar Award. First-year law students at Campbell aren’t eligible to compete in the mock trial teams, so Morse went head first in his second year and became one of the few Year 2 students to compete at Top Gun in 2016. Prior graduates Andrew Shores (’13) and Kaitlin Rothecker (’15) had both placed in the Top 4 in Waco after graduating. No Campbell student had ever won it. One of the things Morse learned over the last two years heading into his final collegiate competition was to go with his gut on things. Whether a student gets to be prosecution or defense is their choice, and that choice is determined by a coin toss. In his final round, Morse won the coin toss, but went against the norm when it comes to choosing sides. Most competitors, he says, prefer to represent the plaintiff’s side because that side tends be more “likeable” and gets to dictate how the case is being tried. Morse, however, chose defense. He almost always chooses defense. “You hear ‘defense lawyer,’ and sometimes that has a negative connotation,” he says. “But I prefer the defense side, and in the finals [at Top Gun], we really liked the evidence for the defense. My only loss in the tournament was on the plaintiff’s side. So when I won the coin toss, I felt like I had the wind at my back. I was comfortable.”

Advocacy law, in Jacob Morse’s words:
“Advocacy Law is the ability to empathize with a client’s position. It’s not necessarily about presenting that position, but arguing and advancing the best interest of someone without judging them. It’s using the best of your abilities to benefit your client.” Morse says his ability to read people and sense the atmosphere of a courtroom helped him more in that final round than which side he chose. He could tell early on the judge — a distinguished senior federal district court judge — was growing impatient and frustrated with his opponent’s numerous objections. “He was tired of hearing them, so I adapted my strategy more to getting on his good side,” he says. “At the end of the day, being likeable is such a big part of being a trial attorney.” That evening, Morse held the $10,000 check for the cameras at Baylor Law School with Tilly and Peaden at his side. It was a M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU
particularly proud moment for Tilly, who earned his law degree from Baylor and served as the senior executive editor of the Baylor Law Review as a student. “When I first met Jacob three years ago, I could quickly tell he was a very special individual,” he says. “Just endowed with confidence and a remarkably intelligent human being. Very personable. And when you’re a genuinely good person and you interact well with people, that comes across so well in the courtroom. As director of advocacy at Campbell, I was impressed with him from Day 1. I knew this guy was special.”
What’s next? Jacob Morse graduated cum laude from Campbell Law School in May and took his North Carolina Bar Exam in July. He plans to join the Raleigh-based law firm Wyrick Robbins — the chairman of the firm’s litigation section is Campbell University Board of Trustees Chairman Ben Thompson — and will start out assisting in litigation projects. He also hopes to help coach and mentor mock trial competitors at Campbell Law School in the near future.

On a milestone day for Campbell University, 150 members of the med schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural class became medical doctors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first Campbell-produced medical doctors and the first osteopathic physicians educated in North Carolina.

he idea first hit Jerry M. Wallace in 2009, standing on the campus of a small private university in Mississippi as part of a team tasked to review that school’s ability to launch a school of osteopathic medicine. Wallace came away believing that school could do it. More importantly, he came away knowing his school could do it bigger. On May 20, 2017, a mere eight years later, Wallace looked out at a sea of 150 robed and tasseled members of the charter class of the school of osteopathic medicine that bears his name. And he beamed. “I will forever remember this day,” said the former Campbell president and current chancellor. “You’re making history, and when I’m done talking, you’ll be able to proudly place DO behind your names. I’ve been delighted seeing you wearing the Campbell orange and black and the Campbell crest on your coats during your rotations. Your preceptors told me your work was superb. One hundred percent of you passed your national examinations. You did so well, and you showed up so well.” The 150-member charter class of the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine began their residencies in 32 states across the nation this summer. Thirty-five percent of the class now practices in the Southeastern portion of the United States in medically underserved regions or regions currently facing a physician shortage. Campbell Magazine interviewed and featured several members of that charter class during their four years in Buies Creek. Days before they officially became doctors, seven of them took the time to reflect on their Campbell experience. We compare their remarks today with what they told us during Year 1 or during their first weeks of rotations in Week 3.

Erica Brotzman The Virginia native was one of five thirdyear students followed by Campbell Magazine during their first week of rotations at Southeastern Regional Health Center in Lumberton in 2015. Then, Brotzman was interested in a career in pediatrics, but through her rotations, she found a passion in dermatology. One of only two charter class members to graduate summa cum laude, Brotzman began work in the field at Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio, this summer.
“You can have 50 people sit and tell you, ‘Oh yeah, med school is going to be tough. I hope you’re ready.’ But you really don’t understand what they mean until you go through it yourself. It’s emotionally challenging having to put your life on hold to go to class and study constantly. It’s physically challenging, too. I remember we’d have to treat each other in the OMM labs because our backs were hurting from sitting in the same position to study for hours and hours. It’s a challenge in every sense of the word. But it’s worth it. It’s worth it. All that we’re going to be doing to help people; it’s worth it.” “These four years have been challenging for sure, but I felt supported by my amazing classmates and faculty every step of the way. The feeling that I always use to describe Campbell is that we truly are a family. I felt it on my interview day here and every day since. We have accomplished this together.” 54 SUMMER 2017
Tom Soker Tom Soker was one of five students featured by Campbell Magazine for its Winter 2016 cover story, “In the Field: A Day in the Life of a Third-Year Medical Student.” During his rotations in Lumberton that previous fall, Soker said he was considering a career in cardiology. In 2018, he’ll join classmate Erica Brotzman in at Case Western in Cleveland to begin his residency in radiology. Before then, he’ll spend a year at Virginia Commonwealth University studying internal medicine.
“There’s so much about medicine I don’t know, but I understand it all comes with experience. I recognize that. But just seeing where I’m at [starting my third year], my progression of knowledge and ability to recognize things compared to where I was a few years ago is just incredible. It’s a testament to the great teaching at Campbell. Without a doubt.”
“I had a great experience during my four years of medical school. I couldn't have asked for a better group of classmates, many of them will be lifelong friends of mine. It was definitely a rigorous [experience], but I feel like I grew and achieved more than I ever thought possible.”
Jeffrey Pennings Jeffrey Pennings’ Campbell experience was one he shared with his father. The two arrived in Buies Creek at the same time — Jeffrey a member of the medical school’s charter class and Dr. Nicholas Pennings a member of its faculty. In 2013, Jeffrey told Campbell Magazine he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and go into family medicine. Four years later, his residency in family medicine begins in Boise, Idaho.
“Growing up, I loved the stories about my dad’s experiences. When I would hang around his office, I always liked the way he interacted with his patients. That personable approach and the relationships he built over the years … that’s the same thing I desire when I practice medicine.” “I had a great experience at Campbell — both during my first two years in the classrooms and during my clinical studies in rural parts of North Carolina. Working in those clinics and hospitals and meeting a ton of people in North Carolina — people with different health care needs and different disadvantages — was valuable. And it was a tremendous experience going through this with my dad. I got to learn medicine with him … it was pretty special for both of us.” M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU

Katy Brewer Key Katy Brewer Key is a descendant (the great-great niece) of Harnett County’s first physician in the late 1800s, Dr. James H. Withers. She’ll continue his legacy by beginning her residency in North Carolina at Cabarrus Family Medicine’s residency program in Concord. Key was interviewed by Campbell Magazine in 2014 after her first year as part of a book chronicling the med school’s inaugural academic year.
“My intent all along was to stay in North Carolina for my training, and I fell in love with Campbell because of the school’s mission to serve rural communities. It struck a heart chord with me. I love helping people, and I love science and learning why things happen to our minds and bodies.”
Melissa Davies Melissa Stout Davies started medical school in 2013 just six weeks after giving birth to her first child. Davies had her second child — a daughter — during her final year … her children were 4 years and 4 months old at her commencement ceremony on May 20. Motherhood has prepared her well for her future — she started her OB/GYN residency at East Carolina University’s Vidant Medical Center in Greenville this summer.
“When I told family and friends about med school, they told me it would be a huge transition and the work would be intensive. With a newborn on the way, they questioned the decision. But becoming a doctor is my dream. So I’m going to go with it. And it’s going to be worth it.” “I’ll never forget how overwhelmed I was on that very first day four years ago. But I realized later that if I paced myself week by week, I would make it. I’ve made long-lasting friendships and long-lasting relationships. I’ve met professors I will never forget. It's amazing how quickly four years have flown by, and I am so grateful to have been able to call Campbell home.”

“[My great-great uncle] was willing to visit homes and stay for hours if needed until he felt his patient was stable. Where science drifted, the desire to heal persisted. I am sure he understood with great profundity the interaction of mind, body and spirit when taking care of an individual. It is through his legacy and my experiences that I have chosen to follow in his footsteps to obtain my training in family medicine in North Carolina.”
Rosemarie Dizon You’d think Buies Creek, North Carolina, would have been a culture shock for Rosemarie Dizon, a graduate of Rutgers University in New Jersey. But Dizon fell in love with Southern hospitality (and sweet tea) and transitioned seamlessly to her new settings. Dizon was interviewed by Campbell Magazine in 2014 after her first year as part of a book chronicling the med school’s inaugural academic year. Three years later, she’s entered her intern year at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton Family Medicine Residency Program in southern California.
“What interested me from the start was Campbell’s emphasis on global health and medical missions. I liked that the school had a Christian background. And the fact that the school was new was enticing, because it meant there was potential for change.” “‘Four years’ … I have to let that sink in for a minute because it only feels like a year has gone by since this all began. My experience has been colored with difficulties, triumphs and an overall appreciation of the human experience when people are at their most vulnerable states. When I reflect on that, I am humbled by how resilient the human mind and spirit are in the most difficult conditions. This sentiment aligns perfectly with the tenets of osteopathic medicine, furthering my desire to practice truly holistic medicine.” M AG AZIN E .CAMP BE LL.EDU

Erasmo Espino Erasmo Espino was a U.S. Army veteran of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan before joining Campbell’s charter med school class. His experiences prepared him well — Espino became a leader in his class and was named a Pat Tillman Military Scholar during his second year, one of only 57 students nationwide to achieve that status. This summer, Espino entered his emergency medicine residency at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta.
“A lot of my decisions in life have come from instinct, and I have no doubt this was the right decision for me. I’m excited about my future. I’m excited to be a part of something new.” “The past four years at Campbell have been an affirmation that I chose the right path after my military service. I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life to something that would have a profound effect in people's lives. Each patient and each encounter was an opportunity for me to make a unique connection and, at the same time, reinforce important medical knowledge.”

Goodbye, Kitchin & Baldwin
Kitchin and Baldwin Halls, built in 1955 and 1958 respectively, will be no more this fall when they’re torn down to make way for the 110,000-square-foot student union, expected to open in 2019. In the spring, we asked former residents of the dorms to share their memories, and they didn’t disappoint. Pictured right is the first Kitchin Hall Men's House Council in the 1956-57 school year. Below are some of our favorite memories:
I threw a football out front of Kitchin one afternoon and the pass never made it. It hit a power line, which wrapped around another power line and exploded. Two of the lines were now live and snapping on the ground, creating a small fire in the grass. One of them was snapping back and forth, which made a mark on this guy's sports car.
Needless to say he was not happy, but first we had to deal with the authorities. The Buies Creek Fire Department, ambulance service and various volunteers had to assess the situation. As the firetruck screamed up the road for the one-block journey to the site of the grass fire, a crowd gathered. There were four or five authoritative Student Government Association folks taking charge until the authorities took over. The fireman got off the back of the truck with full gear, including air tanks. They just sort of stood around until the power was cut. Meanwhile, the grass was burning
slowly. This was irritating the owner of the sports car as the fire was creeping slowly towards his car. The firemen had portable tanks of fluid, one fire hose hooked to a hydrant and various implements of destruction at the ready. Still, nothing was being done. So the owner, Randy, walked over and stomped the fire out with his foot. The fire department, ambulance and SGA folks all packed up and left. A report was done before they left, and I explained to the best of my ability how I should have thrown a shorter pass instead of having the guy go out for a bomb.
It turns out that the electrical line only left smudge marks and did not damage the car. I got a summons to appear in Student Court, up for a charge of throwing a football in an undesignated area (seriously). It would have brought five points against me out of a 20-point system. My friends dressed me in a T-shirt with a prison number on the back, a chain and one of those plastic bowling balls attached. When I made it to the second floor where court was being held, most of them were laughing so hard that I think it helped me get out of it. I received the five points for this dastardly charge with a prayer for judgement and it was removed after one semester. As for the owner of the burning car, Randy and I turned out to be roommates, and to this day, 36 years later, friends. Honestly, if we couldn't tear that dorm down in four years, I don't know how they're going to do it. Lee McGraw (’85)
The Spahrs travelled to Salt Lake City, where the three talked for hours, reminiscing about Madsen’s students and his years in Buies Creek. Madsen was presented with a little statuette of Gaylord dressed as J.A. Campbell as a memento of his time at Campbell. ��������������������������
You can’t handle the truth
In 1984, Don Macari (whom “A Few Good Men” is about) was our residence director in Kitchin while he was attending Campbell Law. I think I hold the honorable distinction of the first to be “taken down” for “conduct unbecoming a Camel” when Don grilled us for breaking into the snack machine. Vance Campbell (’90)
I lived in Baldwin from 20022004 when I was a freshman and then an RA. Our intramural team was called the BaldWINNERS. I remember going all out for Homecoming both years, especially the "Walk like a Camel" year where we made giant hieroglyphic banners that said “Baldwin Rocks” and hung them from the third floor windows. Jennifer Zema Pittman (’06)
The kitchen in Kitchin
I moved into Kitchin in January 2000 all the way from the Bahamas. Dorm life overflowed with great memories. We fully utilized the kitchen in Kitchin, and I remember my friends from the third floor gathering there to cook, especially on those cold winter nights. Most importantly, I met some of the best people in the world and some of my closest friends in Kitchin. Nikki Bethell
My now-husband Chuck Wade planned a surprise proposal party for me in the lobby of Kitchin in March 2003. He had a ton of my friends gather and wait while he walked me back to my dorm.

A GIANT LEAP
In the five years since his playing days at Campbell University, Eric Griffin has bounced around various international pro basketball leagues and NBA developmental teams, but never latching on to an NBA franchise. That looks like it will change this fall after Griffin signed a two-way contract with the Utah Jazz this summer. The contract (a new feature in the league) allows teams to carry two "two-way" players on their roster, in addition to their 15-man regular season roster. Griffin will play for the team’s exclusively owned and operated NBA G League team, the Salt Lake City Stars, as well as the Jazz. Griffin became the first Jazz player to sign a two-way contract. | Photo by David Dow, Getty Images

Fusco's son, Phillip, was diagnosed soon after his birth with a rare genetic disorder known as PraderWilli Syndrome, a partial deletion of the 15th chromosome. After several serious surgeries and a tremendous amount of time in hospitals over the years, Fusco says his son wanted to do something to "help other children who were hurting." Out of this desire was born Phillip's Love Bears. In the last four years, this ministry has sent handstuffed bears to churches, missionaries, hospitals and orphanages at home and all over the world. In this time, approximately 5,000 of Phillip's Love
Bears have been sent throughout the U.S., South Korea, Israel, India, the Middle East, Belize, Kenya, Uganda, Costa Rica, Panama and many more places. Phillip assists in stuffing the bears and finishes each bear with a hug. As the ministry has grown, Phillip's Love Bears has partnered with organizations such as Joni and Friends, the Tim Tebow Foundation, American Heritage Girls and Trail Life, One Fair Chance (India), Aikwangwon (South Korea) and other organizations. "God used [my experiences at] Campbell and my son to allow me to make this little impact," Fusco says. "Through Phillip and through this ministry, we are able to share the love of Christ with young children and disabled adults all over the world." The ministry hopes to begin a "Teddy Bear Squad" at Campbell University for students who would like to get involved with world missions and have fun hand-stuffing Teddy Bears at the same time. In the coming months, Phillip's Love Bears will be adding an antimicrobial bear that can be sent to cancer patients, as well as therapy bears that can be sent to cancer patients. Other bears will be used in physical therapy to reduce atrophy, and weighted bears will be made for individuals who suffer with sensory issues.

Alumnus returns to North Carolina to expand his youth program
EVON BARNES ('04) is impacting the East Coast — from New York City to Durham — with his program giving at-risk young men a chance to prove themselves and rise above adversity.
coaching. After serveral assistant coaching positions after college, Barnes was named the head men's basketball coach and associate dean of student at Lackawanna College in Pennsylvania in 2013.
Barnes' Young Male Achievers (YMA) program was born in 2005 in Washington, D.C., focused then more on offering a new way of life for teens and young men involved or living around gang activity in the area. A native of New York City, Barnes himself encountered gang activity throughout his childhood and relied on his community and family to support and steer him into a direction he and they could be proud of.
He moved to Durham and returned to coaching at the high school level. He soon became inspired to expand the YMA program.
His father was his earliest positive male role model, and both parents raised him early on to serve others and give back to his community. That started with volunteering during Thanksgiving — an act Barnes has implemented in the YMA program — something he learned from his father before he passed away when Barnes was only 9. “My memories of [my father] were ones where he gave people opportunities that most overlooked," he said. “During the holidays, he would make sure every kid in the neighborhood had a gift and would provide turkeys during Thanksgiving.” While his father taught him service, Barnes learned humility and gratefulness from his mother. All of these attributes served Barnes well throughout high school and into college at Campbell, where he earned his degree in physical education teaching and
“It is now less about gangs and more about empowerment, academics and civic duties," Barnes said. “For YMA to have more than 70 members at this point and more than 8,000 hours of community service — virtually eliminating in-school suspension for minority sixth- through 12th-graders —is a testament to a group that believes in a shared vision.” Students in YMA have opportunities to attend youth leadership conferences and learn valuable skills. They have also served 7,000 collective volunteer hours and blessed 60 families with a meal on Thanksgiving since 2014. Barnes said he is looking to expand YMA into other schools in the state and eventually make it into a nonprofit. But his vision doesn’t stop there. Barnes has entered the political realm in Durham, saying he wants to “bring economic growth and prosperity to all of it's citizens regardless of the zip code they reside.” As a teacher, he says he “encounters our future in the form of students who deserve to dream and deserve a better world that can be given.” ABIGAIL PORE

FRIENDS WE WILL MISS
A TRIBUTE TO LEARY DAVIS (1941-2017) BY BILLY RICHARDSON
had often heard it said, we are the choices we make. This was certainly brought home to me this past graduation of Campbell University's 39th law school class. My youngest son, Zack, is a member and graduate of that class. As he walked down the aisle to the stage where he was to receive his degree and was hooded by Professor Woodruff, a distinguished professor of the school of law who retired after graduation, I could hardly hold back the tears and years. Zack, like my oldest son Matt, who had graduated in 2009, was officially a "Campbell Lawyer." Both in so doing, had proven a lot to me and to themselves. They were indeed second-generation lawyers from what is now a growing, very prestigious law school. Both of my sons and I had other choices we could have made. Yet, we chose Campbell — to say this path is hard is doing it an injustice. Campbell's tradition, made so by its founding dean Leary Davis, is rigorous, intent and almost brutal. Davis had the audacity to look at the true measure of a person — not just grades or numbers on a standardized test — and he demanded the admissions dean and committee to look at the heart, commitment and character of each student with each selection. At both of my sons' graduations, I remember flashing back to my choice of over 40 years ago when Dean Davis personally came to the University of North Carolina to recruit students and sell his dream of the law school at Campbell. He was a transcendent force of nature and would not take "no" for an answer. Of the many gifts I received from him, one certainly is the importance of "embracing the dream," of not always taking the obvious path. I first met the dean when he barged into my office in the Student Union at UNC. At the time, I was student body president and as such was set on a different course. Being SGA President meant you went to the UNC School of Law followed by internships and clerkships with Court of Appeals Judges, North Carolina Supreme Court Judges and offers from big law firms. This was a no-brainer. Davis thought his dream was worth more. At Campbell, I would go to an unaccredited law school with incomplete classrooms and no alumni and forgo giving up an opportunity to go to a Top 15 law school with a huge alumnus base, and a tradition of law school excellence. Davis' dream was the embodiment of the famous saying, "There's nothing

more compelling as an idea whose time had come." He envisioned an intense study of law, coupled with a love of North Carolina and a school of law transforming our system of justice. Davis knew with no alumni, "each other" was all we had. He recruited professors who instilled the dream into us. They made us disciplined attorneys by giving us exams after Christmas, adhering to strict classroom attendance and participation policies and providing rigorous supervision. The result of Dean Davis' dream can be measured in 38 successful classes, a bar rate second to none, and a beautiful law school in the center of North Carolina's capital, but it should not be measured in those terms. Rather, it should be celebrated because it is the rarest of gifts — the real deal. It is what our founding dean intended it to be — a tradition of intense study committed to producing lawyers who would zealously defend their clients and be apologetic for the law. They would cherish this call because the school made them earn it with rigorous study, and in doing so, forever change them. It would put in them an inner strength few will ever know. We have had many great deans, but Dean J. Rich Leonard “gets” Davis' true call and we are blessed to have him. Davis' spirit lives on in him and he constantly reminds us of the “Campbell Contract” we chose to sign. A 1980 graduate of Campbell Law School, William O. "Billy" Richardson represents District 44 in the N.C. House of Representatives. He is the founding partner of The Richardson Firm in Fayetteville.

FROM THE EDITOR
It was 50 years ago today ...
y dad introduced me to The Beatles. He’d play their “lighter” stuff for me when I was barely walking — kidfriendly songs like “Yellow Submarine,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “Octopus’ Garden” that were as full of colorful imagery as they were musical innovation.
The culture on campus echoed in some of the writing for Campbell’s campus newspaper at the time, Creek Pebbles, which published an editorial in May 1968, “What was a hippie?” It read: “The flowers of power have wilted, the drug turned to transcendental meditation, and a lot of hippies have gone back to the straight world.”
Those songs always stuck with me, even when my musical tastes became as weird as my hormones in my early teens. I was in college when I rediscovered them — Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour CDs I “borrowed” from my dad to help the drive back to campus seem not so long one weekend. I’ve been hooked ever since, well aware that there’s nothing unique about being a Beatles fan, but also very aware of the important role I have in sharing this music with future generations.
Ferguson, a writer and editor for Creek Pebbles in ’67 and ’68, stood out. He focused solely on music and entertainment, offering surprisingly mature insight on that era of music and interviewing big names in the industry as they toured the state or played on campus. His writing also “countered the culture” at Campbell, whether it was a line about the “sexual image” of the late James Dean or the rebellious songwriting of Bob Dylan.
This year marked the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s, arguably The Beatles’ most influential album and the topper to many a “best albums ever” list (I’ll take Abbey Road, but that’s not important). I missed out on this era of music —which included Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones at their best, Motown and much, much more — born roughly 10 years later in time for disco and the 80s.But I’m no less fascinated by it. And as someone who regularly dives into Campbell University history — whether it’s for stories on a legendary basketball camp or the mysterious origin of a mascot — it was inevitable that I’d one day see how The Beatles fit into Campbell’s story. This is where I say, “Thank you, Michael Ferguson.” But first, allow me to set the scene. There were 490,000 American troops fighting in South Vietnam in 1967, and the anti-war movement back home was reaching its peak. College campuses across the nation provided some of the largest protest gatherings of the time. The growing Campbell College campus in Buies Creek, however, remained mostly quiet that year. That fall, the campus rolled out the welcome mat for the school’s third president in 80 years, Norman A. Wiggins, the last man you’d ever associate with long hair, fringe vests and flower power. He was conservative, in other words, and wasn’t what you’d call tolerant of rebellion — instead believing students and faculty should join in “mutual respect and join responsibilities … to get on with the true business of education.” Wiggins even doubled down on the nation’s growing antiwar sentiment by establishing Campbell’s now nationally renowned ROTC program in 1971. 88 SUMMER 2017
As you can imagine, Ferguson invoked the Beatles a lot in his writing. They had changed the world only a few years earlier and had just entered their “stop touring and focus on the art” phase of their pop culture reign. Ferguson interviewed Paul Anka, the crooner known for hits like “Diana” and “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” before his concert at Campbell in October 1968. Sporting a pin-striped suit, thick sideburns and John Lennon-inspired granny sunglasses, Ferguson asked Anka about the Beatles and their impact on pop music. Anka was surprisingly open: “They write great songs… unfortunately, they may let their personal lives get in the way.” Anka criticized Lennon’s inability to handle fame, but praised Paul McCartney, saying, “He seems to stabilize the group.” A few months later, Ferguson reviewed the animated Beatles film, “Yellow Submarine,” writing, “While its story is predictable, the pure sensory delight of the film makes it a remarkable achievement. It’s a happy film that transports you back to the joys of childhood.” I’ve tried to find Michael Ferguson, hoping for a larger article on his time at Campbell. As someone who has taken pride in his ability to track down even the hardest-to-find alumni, I’m embarrassed to say I have failed. And it’s a shame, too. In my research, I became a big fan of Ferguson’s writing. If he’s out there, I hope to tell him that. And further tell his story.

FROM THE VAULT
In his first Homecoming as Campbell College president, Norman A. Wiggins donned a freshman beanie as he spoke to Camel Soccer fans from the back of a flatbed trailer for the 1967 bonfire. Wiggins served Campbell for 36 years as president before retiring in 2003. This fall marks the 50th anniversary of his inauguration.
