GOLF @ Greensboro College Greensboro College has a long and prominent tradition of educating and molding young minds. As we celebrate our 175th anniversary it is then no coincidence that there is an equally strong tradition of success on the athletic field. Thirteen of our current collegiate programs participate in the USA South Conference (formerly the Dixie Conference), who celebrates its 50th anniversary this same year. Among our most successful programs in the USA South and NCAA history is our men’s golf program. Starting USA South Conference play in 1971, the men’s golf program quickly made its mark amongst conference foes. Just three years after joining the USA South Conference, the men’s golf team won its first conference championship in 1974, edging UNC Greensboro by 3 strokes. Led by Coach Milton Reece, Greensboro College placed two golfers on the AllConference Team (Rick Cobb and Warren Choate), while Coach Reece was recognized as Coach of the Year. The next year, Jim Locke assumed the responsibility of leading the program, and the success continued. Under Locke’s supervision, the men’s golf team would win conference championships in ’78, ’79, ’80 and again in ’84 and ’88. In addition, a healthy rivalry against Methodist University was created as through the ’80s and ’90s every conference title was won by one of the two schools. In addition to this team success, Kevin Angle highlighted the individual honors when he was named the 1997 National Player of the Year. The program’s success continued into the 2000 season, when Methodist University edged the Pride by 15 strokes in the conference championship. Greensboro College used this as motivation heading into the NCAA Championships, held at Bedford Valley Golf Course in Battle Creek, Michigan. Led by All-Conference recipients David Horne and Kevin O’Connell, the Pride had the last laugh, shooting 293, 302, and 286 before to the last day was cancelled due to inclement weather. This 54-hole total of 881 bested Methodist, bringing the men’s golf program and Greensboro College their first national title in our 33 years of intercollegiate athletics. “The 2000 team was the most unified team we had in the four years I was there. Everyone was committed to getting better each week. Robert (Coach Linville) cast a vision and expectation in the fall for us, and we strived to live up to it. When we arrived at the NCAAs, we had momentum and belief. During the tournament every guy on the team contributed. Led by Kevin O’Connell’s third-round 66 we took a one-stroke lead and held on for the school’s first NCAA title. We were proud and excited to bring the championship home to Greensboro College.” – DAVID HORNE

IN ADDITION TO THE 2000 AND 2011 NCAA NATIONAL TITLES, AS OF 2013, THE MEN’S GOLF PROGRAM HAS ACHIEVED THE FOLLOWING: 9 USA South / Dixie Conference Titles | 99 All-Conference Recipients | 13 Conference Coach of the Year Awards | 2 National Coach of the Year Awards | 48 NCAA All-Americans | 9 Scholar All-American’s | 1 Individual National Champion (Kevin O’Connell – 2000) | 1 National Freshman of the Year (Kevin Angle – 1996) | 1 National Player of the Year (Kevin Angle – 1997)

Coach Robert Linville built on this national title in 2000 to form one of the most consistent Division III golf programs in the nation through the early 2000s. In 2009, Dirk Fennie assumed the responsibilities of guiding the program. Coach Fennie wasted no time in building on the legacy of the program built by Milton Reece, Jim Locke, Steve Johnson, and Robert Linville. Similar to the 2000 season, the Pride fell just short of a conference title in 2011, three stroke off the leader, Christopher Newport. Again, the program used this as momentum heading into the NCAA Division III Championships, this time held at nearby Grandover Resort in Greensboro, North Carolina. Led by First Team All-Conference recipient Brock Elder the Pride started strong in the early rounds. Midway through the last round, Greensboro College lost the lead and was tied with Illinois Wesleyan. Under the guidance of Coach Finnie, the Pride players made 9 birdies on the back nine to secure its second NCAA Division III national title for the program and Greensboro College. Brock Elder went on to be named First Team All-American while Kirk Mitchell and Ben Nihart were named Second Team All-Americans. “It takes a lot of discipline and hard work to stay focused on one golf round, not to mention an entire season. I am so proud of our team to have a start-to-finish season with huge wins. A national championship is not something you can practice for but only dream of and prepare by putting yourselves in pressure situations and overcoming that adversity. We just happened to be the best team that week but you can see glimpses of that team throughout the entire year.” – BROCK ELDER Then and now, the men’s golf program at Greensboro College continues to be a “hole in one.”

DEAR ALUMNI AND FRIENDS: The ongoing celebration of the 175th anniversary of the founding of Greensboro College gives all of us who believe in the unique mission of the institution an opportunity for meaningful reflection on what it means to be a small, private, residential, church-related, liberal-arts college. I have the privilege of talking about GC at 175 with many groups, from admissions open houses to current students, alumni gatherings on campus and out of town, corporate groups, Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs and more. In making those presentations and entering into dialogue with that broad range of those who interact with, support and believe in our mission, you would hear descriptions of how meaningful the GC experience has been for our alumni (and we indeed always show that the current students and alumni are The Pride of GC). You would be pleased to hear about our award-winning student athletes, artists and researchers as well as our accomplished faculty and staff. And our recent graduates are being accepted into the best graduate and professional schools, getting jobs in their fields and are committed to meaningful community service. And you would also hear honest discussion of the challenges of small, private, church-related, liberal-arts colleges in the rapidly changing environment of higher education today: Frank discussion of the “continuing, albeit minority, importance of liberal higher education which includes Christian truth and life.” That GC respects its heritage as “a pioneer in music, art and theater.” Satisfaction and pride in the fact that “GC has overcome fires, wars, and has learned to live within its means, even with the struggle to maintain enrollment faced with the direct competition of state institutions that are well funded by the taxpayer, while the church realistically will no longer be able to provide meaningful funding to its colleges.” And, of course, that “SACS, the college accrediting body, will require financial monitoring reports given the impact of the recent national economic downturn on the finances of the college.” I place those comments above in quotation marks because, while I can indeed state the exact same things in our 175th year in 2013, those quotes are from Samuel Turrentine, who was GC President from 1913 to 1935, and from Luther Gobbel, GC President from 1935 to 1952. And the SACS financial monitoring report noted was due in January 1936. Struggle is part of the historical narrative of small, private colleges. And commitment and perseverance are the unnamed character traits of Greensboro College faculty and staff. For all of you who have steadfastly supported the ongoing mission of this remarkable and sacred 175-year-old institution, you have our deep and abiding gratitude and respect. We invite you to take part in any and all of our 175th-year activities and programs. And please do stop by campus anytime to see first-hand the transforming experience that continues to form the “long green line” of GC Pride in our 175th year. With Pride

Lawrence D. Czarda, Ph.D President

Greensboro College

MICHAEL DUTCH joined the Greensboro College faculty in 2004. After earning his M.B.A., he embarked on a career that included stints as a production supervisor, quality-control supervisor and technical services manager and director of operations for such companies as Qualex, Frito-Lay and LSG Sky Chefs. Always looking to improve and remembering that one of his professors said teaching helped him be a better manager, eventually Dutch sought out and secured a position as an adjunct faculty member at a local university. The experience was so rewarding that he decided to leave the corporate world in order to earn his Ph.D. and teach full time. When looking for his first full-time teaching position, he knew Greensboro College was the perfect fit. In addition to teaching, he has served as an examiner for the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the N.C. Award for Excellence; a member of the Small Business Council of the Guilford Merchants Association; and a reviewer for the journals Human Resource Management and the Journal of Management Education. Now, after his decade as a member of the Greensboro College faculty we wanted to sit down with Dr. Dutch and ask him what he has witnessed in terms of change and growth with Greensboro College and what he envisions for the future.


Michael Dutch Dr. Dutch, you came to Greensboro College in 2004 so with a decade what have you seen in terms of change? Well, I’d actually like to point out what hasn’t changed, which is why I came to Greensboro College in the first place, and that is the student-centered nature of the institution. Greensboro College professors come here to teach and interact with students and that is the best part of the job, and that hasn’t changed for 10 years. I think that is what makes Greensboro College special for the faculty members and the students. We remain professionally relevant but our careers aren’t spent with our nose in a journal trying to dig out some nugget of information that no one else found, our job is to improve the lives of our student’s education and their knowledge and that is a great job. What keeps you excited about your role as an educator? What keeps me excited about my role is the students. When you throw a hook out there on a particular subject, to try and draw them in, and you see their eyebrows raise or their head nod, you know you are reaching them with a particular topic. I use real-life examples for what appears to some as abstract management topics. That can be a challenge in research-centered institutions where it is all about the data. You forget that what is easy to the professor, since you have been dealing with it for years, is not always easy to the student. So, when we can take these somewhat abstract terms and couch them in real-life experience that can be understood by the average traditional college student, it is fun. They give you almost an immediate response when they are getting it. I typically take an 8 a.m. teaching slot, and there are a couple of reasons for that. One is that it is a challenge to wake up those sometimes sleepy students, but it is also because in the workforce, for me, I never had a job that started as late as 8 a.m., so it is also good practice. I want to train my students to get up early.

What do the students mean to you? How have they changed you or developed you as a professor? Good question–we have a lot of first-generation college students and I’m actually sort of a first-generation college student. My father went back to college when I was in college, so I’m not sure how you count that! However, we have a lot of college students where this is their first family experience in college. A large number of our students come from family businesses. It is always fun to hear the kids talk about their family businesses. I learn about those businesses through the students, and we can use those examples generally as food for student thought. So we talk about someone’s tailor shop or mechanic shop, and not only does it make it real for the students, selfishly I can learn about the sub-segments of businesses that I wasn’t previously exposed to. In terms of the business world is there a key person in the marketplace that you admire? I’ll answer that question in the opposite way again. Donald Trump is an example of the opposite of what I teach. Though he has been remarkably successful, how he behaves on TV is what I teach my students not to do in my leadership classes. People like Warren Buffett, he has calm, analytical approach; I used him in class the other day about how he took a big gamble in 2008 and when the market was down he made Berkshire Hathaway 50 billion dollars when it recovered. We talk about Steve Jobs, and although he had some leadership issues, he was a visionary, but I generally talk in generic terms–rather then pin down one leader. Several of my classes use current events–we have business in the news–the students bring in news articles so we use them as discussion points. They find it, bring it in and we use it as the basis for the class and other classes.

What is your greatest hope for your students? I am always happy when I see someone that furthers his or her education. A validation of our program is when someone gets into a high-ranking MBA or masters program. We have a student now in UNC’s graduate program and I have an adult student who is at Notre Dame for his MBA. That is always exciting when our students get high-end placements in graduate schools. Another excitement is when you run into a former student outside of the classroom. I was out just the other day and ran into a former student, who was successful in his career and making a contribution. He remembered me and walked across the parking lot to say hello. That was a nice validation. Tell us about the difference between a business Program and a business School? Our business program is designed to be generic. We don’t have a business school, we have a business program, and that was probably the biggest transition for me because I was coming from a business school to a liberal arts-oriented school. I only had so much space to teach business. It took me a little while, maybe a couple of years, but I realized that it is a good thing. Our students are well rounded, and maybe someone who gets a degree from a renowned business school may be more technically competent in a specific area, but in reality, your employer teaches you what you need to know outside of that basic knowledge. So, we give our students a well-rounded perspective across the spectrum of business. So they can go into an interview, talk intelligently and be moldable by their employer. Our students’ background, their vocabulary, their understanding and the ability to process information efficiently are tools that we give them so they can move into an organization and be successful. We’ve recently launched online programs–tell us more about that. Well, our BBA program has been around for 10 years, and we are on our 15th cadre and we know how to run a degreecompletion program. The online program will mirror the onground program in features. It is a cohort-based program, so they start and travel through the program with the same group of students. The wonderful thing about our BBA program is that it is sequenced, so that uncertainty in a typical college program is removed. For the on-ground version, we make it easier for our students who are in the work force to take part in our program. Students are full time, so they are eligible for financial aid, and we do one class at a time. It makes it easier for that full-time working student. We move fast, there is a great deal of work to do, but it is one course at a time.

Points of Pride

Let’s talk about your views about the future of the business program. Five years down the road, which would be the appropriate growth path, I’d like to start a small MBA program. It would complement our core traditional program. I see it having an online element, too. Lastly, what do you think is the most unique thing about Greensboro College? I’ve lived in a number of large cities and Greensboro is a great place to live–small enough but close enough to bigger cities if I want to go there. So for the students the location of the college is great. I also think there is a camaraderie and interaction of the faculty. That’s different than collegiality. You’ll find that everywhere. We have bonds with people in other disciplines. In other roles and at other schools, I found that it was so inwardly focused that I didn’t get the opportunity to interact with other professors. Here, I interact with English professors, music professors, history professors, and that really enriches me. If I was teaching in a larger state school, I would teach one subject, and probably one sub area of that subject, and I would be an expert but in that one area. Here, we teach business as a whole. I feel that I have a better understanding of all of the other areas that fall under business. Additionally, I get to work more closely with students and I get to see their progress over time, and the reward of seeing your first-year seminar students graduate is unmatched.

Dr. Michael Dutch has been honored with the Sam Walton Fellowship, the Communities in Schools Champions Cup, the Greensboro College Alumni Association Outstanding Teaching Award, and the General Board of Higher Education and the Ministry of the United Method Church Exemplary Teaching Award. He holds B.S. and M.B.A. degrees from Drexel University and a Ph.D. from the University of Houston. On campus, he has served as a member of the Curriculum and Instruction Committee, Student Conduct Committee, the George Center for Honors Studies Committee, the Academic Review Task Force, and the Institutional Assessment Committee, and he has been the faculty advisor for the college’s chapter of Students in Free Enterprise. Dr. Dutch has published such articles and book chapters as, “The Leadership Coach,” “Who’s Got the Power,” “What Motivates Entrepreneurs,” “The Race for a Top-Selling Electric Car,” “Can Organizational Design Impact Corporate Social Responsibility,” and “Fed-Ex and the Romans: Implications for Organizational Design.” He has made dozens of presentations at professional conferences on business organization and leadership. Dr. Dutch was awarded the Fred L. Proctor Sr. Professorship in Business on September 5, 2013. When he is not leading the Greensboro College business program, you might find Dr. Dutch tooling around town on his maxi-scooter, the perfect performance vehicle for a frugal business professor.

Greensboro College


Musical Theatre Concentration When Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre decided to add a concentration in musical theatre, it turned to Perry Morgan-Hall, a part-time instructor of theatre, to oversee it. He was an obvious choice, having overseen the musical-theatre track at Northwestern State University in Louisiana before coming to Greensboro College. Now, Morgan-Hall is directing the department’s first production involving students in the musical-theatre emphasis: “Carrie: The Musical,” based on the Stephen King horror novel about a bullied high-school girl who discovers she can move objects with the force of her mind. The musical will be presented Feb. 26-March 2, 2014, in the Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center on campus. As this edition of Points of Pride went to press, Morgan-Hall was opening auditions not only to the campus community but also to the public. He says creating the concentration wasn’t difficult because the Theatre Department’s existing curriculum already included most of the foundation, from the history of musical theatre to acting, piano, and ballet, jazz and tap dancing. “(Department chair) David Schram told me to look at the (curriculum) to see what we’d need to add to make it a viable program,” Morgan-Hall says. “I found we needed to add just two classes to make it solid” – musical-theatre ensemble singing and a solo cabaret performance class.


The class on the history of musical theatre, usually an elective, is required for the concentration. “It’s important for students to learn the history of American musical theatre so that they can have an intelligent conversation with the people they’ll be working with,” Morgan-Hall says. “It’s important to understand how we got to Andrew Lloyd Webber.” The concentration makes sense for GC because only two other colleges in the region, Catawba College in Salisbury and Elon University in Elon, offer it, Morgan-Hall says. And, he says, musical theatre is “the kind of production that sells. People go to musicals because they make you feel good and leave happy.” The program will make GC graduates more competitive in the field, Morgan-Hall says: “I want to put out a student who has trained to be more than a chorus member.” Four students are enrolled in the concentration this fall, and Morgan-Hall makes recruiting trips every Friday. One, freshman Treva Gaupp from Southern Pines, N.C., says the college’s small size and strong theatre program made her want to come here. And, she says, the program has put her to work quickly. Barely more than a month into the school year, she was appearing in a collection of short works, “Be With You Shortly …” “There are not a lot of places that freshmen can be (performing) in the first month they are in school,” she says.

She chose the musical-theatre concentration for the simplest of reasons: “It is the best of two worlds. I love music and acting, and this was a great way to get both types of classes.”

With American musical theatre’s large repertoire, why did Greensboro College pick “Carrie: The Musical” for the concentration’s first production? The original 1988 Broadway production, which cost $7 million to mount, closed after just five performances, with The New York Times calling it “the most expensive quick flop in history.” Writer Lawrence D. Cohen and composers Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore vowed it would never be performed again. Schram, the department chair, says that history was part of the challenge. He points out that Cohen, Gore and Pitchford’s reworked version, with what Morgan-Hall calls “a stronger script and a tighter story,” was more successful OffBroadway in 2012, winning an Off-Broadway Alliance award for best musical revival. That version will be performed here. The material, Schram says, will be familiar to audiences with little background in musical theatre, coming as it did from a best-selling novel that has been adapted for film twice. And, he says, “it is also the ultimate bullying story in terms of the nerd getting revenge – something we all like to see.” That revenge was what made the novel a horror story, and Morgan-Hall is all too aware of the risks of adapting a horror story into a musical. “I don’t want it to be camp,” he says. “You have to treat it seriously. This is a real story with real people. If it ends up being campy, fine, but that’s not what I’m aiming for.” Gaupp already is treating “Carrie” seriously. “I think that the dancing is going to be the hardest thing for me because I don’t really dance much,” she says, but she’s not worried: “It is a lot of work, we put in a lot of time, but we all love it.”

Freshman Treva Gaupp says she chose the musical-theatre concentration for the simplest of reasons: “It is the best of two worlds. I love music and acting, and this was a great way to get both types of classes.”

175 ALUMNI for 175 YEARS Blanche Burris, Class of 1925: Burris, a minister’s Aaron Weibe, Class of 2008: Weibe, an Air Force staff sergeant who graduated with a B.A. in music, plays guitar with the Air Force Central Command Band, which performs from South Carolina to Maine and overseas in support of troop morale and international relations. “As a professional musician for the military, my job requires a lot of proficiency in various styles of music,” Weibe says. “The faculty at GC recognizes the importance of developing young players into versatile working professionals, and that’s exactly what it did for me (with) a combination of a lot of practice and hard work matched by the guidance and direction given to me by the best music faculty in North Carolina.”

daughter who had started playing piano at age 9, had to leave GC after her freshman year to teach elementary school for three years to pay for the rest of her college education. After graduation, she joined the college’s music faculty as an instructor of piano and music theory while studying during summers with the president and the dean of music at the Juilliard School of Music. She remained a GC faculty member for 40 years, retiring in 1965. She died in 1981.

Bettie Caldwell, Class of 1882: Caldwell, the greatgranddaughter of Greensboro physician and educator David Caldwell, became the city of Greensboro’s first librarian when the city’s first library opened in 1902 on the site of what is now the Elon University School of Law. She retired in 1920, and in 1925 she published Founders and Builders of Greensboro 18081908, a book that had grown out of her archival work at the library and contained sketches and photographs of 50 men and women who had played key roles in the founding and development of Greensboro. She died in 1936.

Greensboro College

Honor Roll of Donors DEAR ALUMNI & FRIENDS OF GREENSBORO COLLEGE, On behalf of the Board of Directors of Greensboro College, I thank you for your generosity throughout the past fiscal year (July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013) and am pleased to present our annual Honor Roll of Donors. Your contributions provide invaluable support and help us fulfill our mission that has been in place for 175 years. More than 90 percent of our students rely on scholarships or financial aid to attend Greensboro College and pursue their dream of an education at a small liberal arts college. Gifts to the College enable us to continue to attract talented students with scholarships and financial assistance. For some, our ability to provide institutional aid makes the difference between coming to GC or not and permits our students to become involved on campus and serve others. The educational, spiritual, and social opportunities offered at Greensboro College are possible, in part, because of philanthropic contributions – no matter the size – from alumni like you. Without them, we cannot make this education possible.

As a donor, you are an active partner with Greensboro College as we inspire students to excel in learning, leadership, and service in our community and beyond. Gifts to the College are seen as a vote of confidence, a vote that is considered by foundations and funding organizations that award grants and associations that award higher education accreditation. By giving back, you help students and yourself by enhancing the reputation of those who attended Greensboro College and are proud to call Greensboro College their Alma Mater. I sincerely thank you for your support this year and invite you to continue to invest in Greensboro College’s bright future by making a gift next year. Because of your support, we continue to graduate individuals of intellect and character who will lead and serve by engaging in the world. With Pride, Walter Newton, Board Chair

To mark its 175th anniversary, Greensboro College is putting the spotlight on 175 alumni who have contributed to the college, the community or both. From the 19th century to the 2000s, these men and women represent the many alumni who have exemplified the college’s values. You can read their stories at Here are a few excerpts:

Joseph Lowman, Class of 1966: Graduating from GC with a B.A. in psychology, Lowman went on to spend 43 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, primarily teaching, researching and supervising with UNC’s Clinical Training Program as well as serving as the assistant dean of arts and sciences from 1993 to 2000. He also is an avid vocal and instrumental musician. He received GC’s Distinguished Alumni Award winner in 1991 and served as Alumni Association president from 1986 to 1988. Now retired, he lives in Boone. He once told the college, “Soon after beginning a Ph.D. program the year after I graduated from GC, it became clear to me that I had received a first-rate academic education at Greensboro College -- one easily comparable (if not superior in breadth) to those of my fellow graduate students from the Ivy League and the Big Ten.”

Heather Macy, Class of 2000: Macy played on GC’s women’s basketball team for four years while earning her B.S. in exercise and sports science/administration and coaching. She finished her basketball career 11th in college history in scoring and in the top 10 in assists. (The 1996-97 team, of which she was a member, was inducted into the Pride’s Hall of Fame in 2012.) After stints as assistant women’s basketball coach at various colleges and universities, she became head coach at Division II Pfeiffer University and Francis Marion University before moving to Division I East Carolina University in 2010. She was named Conference USA Coach of the Year in 2013. “Greensboro College was the perfect place for me to grow and prepare for the future,” she says. “I enjoyed my GC experience and credit the wonderful people there for inspiring and challenging me."

Jamie Trout Smothers, Class of 2006: Smothers’s achievements at Greensboro College were stellar: She graduated with a 4.0 grade-point average, won the Harold H. Hutson award and was selected by her classmates as commencement speaker after serving three years as both a residence advisor and the community service coordinator for Village 401 and winning the Business Program Faculty Service Award and the AllCollege Alpha Chi Award. Later in 2006, she joined First Citizens Investor Services, rising to the rank of vice president and working with seven local branches to serve clients’ investment needs. She became a Certified Financial Planner in 2010. In the community, she has volunteered with the Junior League of Greensboro, delivering food to the elderly, and the PTA of Cone Elementary School, and her church, where she is involved in building homes for Habitat for Humanity and making food backpacks for kids. “My years at GC were spent learning -- learning in class; learning about the community; learning about others; and learning about myself,” she says. “I know how valuable that time was and how all that I learned is put to use in my daily life. I owe GC gratitude for these wonderful gifts.”
