Message from the President Dear Friends of Louisburg College, On December 10, 2007, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges notified Louisburg College that the school has been placed on warning for six months, based on the SACS accreditation standard on financial stability. In the same meeting, Louisburg College was notified that the school’s assessment and institutional effectiveness plan was fully approved. The warning designation was extended to Louisburg College as an opportunity to strengthen the school’s financial condition with improved budgeting, increased revenues, and major gifts. I am pleased that the board of trustees is fully engaged in the process to strengthen the finances of the school. Also, I am thankful that SACS has committed to working with the school and providing guidance on how to gain compliance with financial stability standards. We are on the right path to increase our revenues, reduce our expenditures, maintain quality, and assure a bright future for this historic college. The SACS warning has presented the College with an opportunity to restore the health of our institution. The coming months are a time for revitalization and restoration. As many of you may know, the College recently made reductions in personnel and operating budgets. The loss of college family was a painful step in strengthening our financial stability; however, it was necessary as we work to meet the directives presented by SACS. Please be aware that Louisburg College remains fully accredited and offers all students a dependable opportunity to graduate and transfer to the senior college or university of their choice. For 221 years, we have remained committed to the academic success of our students. Today, that tradition is alive and well. The first time I was given the opportunity to address the College family, I spoke of the bright future that I saw for Louisburg. I remain confident that the unique mission, rich history, dedicated faculty and staff, wonderful students, committed trustees, treasured alumni and generous donors have paved the way for an institution that is prepared to secure its place in today’s academic world. To once again quote Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, “The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving.” I am convinced that the College is moving in the right direction, and we will continue to move forward with greater efficiency and fiscal health in the months and years ahead. May God richly bless Louisburg College - the family and wonderful supporters. Sincerely,

J. Michael Clyburn, President

Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic and popular motivational speaker, addressed Louisburg College students at the start of the academic year. Louisburg College Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness Dr. Morris Wray is pleased that Williams’ visit fell on the first day of the new semester. “Perhaps the most important day on a college campus is the first day of classes, because the critical choice each college student makes that day, whether accidentally or intentionally, often determines the outcomes both of their college experience and their life beyond college,” Wray said. “Pat Williams’ visit constitutes a major gift to Louisburg College and her students. He is among the world’s most highly regarded motivational speakers.” The event, part of this year’s new student orientation, was hosted by the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Louisburg College. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges. On three occasions since 2003, the Gamma Upsilon

Beginning in January 2008, Louisburg College will offer students and parents the option of enrolling in a campus emergency notification system through e2Campus. This system will send emergency notification via text message to a student’s registered mobile phone. Students will also continue to receive timely warnings via campus e-mail. This system gives Louisburg College the capability to quickly alert students to potentially threatening situations on campus. An added bonus to the e2Campus system will be the ability to send students updates from all areas of campus life. Students can opt to receive announcements about athletic events, campus activities, intramurals, and more.

chapter at Louisburg College has received the Pinnacle Gold Award, recognizing that Gamma Upsilon at Louisburg College is among the fastest growing PTK chapters world-wide. Williams’ message, “A Champion Under Construction,” outlined ten steps to success. After the program, students were given the opportunity to meet and greet with Williams during a lunch on campus. Williams is an alumnus of Wake Forest University and a member of the Wake Forest Sports Hall of Fame. Pat and his wife, Ruth, are also the parents of 19 children, including 14 adopted from four nations.

Wray Writes Lead Article for National Publication The October 25 edition of Enrollment Leadership, a newsletter for college and university presidents published monthly by the National Research Center for College and University Admissions, features an article on transfer student recruitment by Morris Wray, former vice president for institutional effectiveness at Louisburg College. Dr. Wray wrote the lead article at the request of NRCCUA leadership. According to Don Munce, president of NRCCUA, the 36 year old organization exists to assist colleges and universities that seek to maximize their enrollment opportunities. Wray was chosen by NRCCUA to write this article because of

his success in enrollment management at both two-year colleges and at senior colleges and universities. Specifically, Wray was asked to help presidents of senior colleges and universities envision systems for maximizing the enrollment of transfer students. Wray reminded his readers that nearly half of all undergraduate students in the United States are enrolled at public and private twoyear colleges and that many are exceptional students. In fact, Wray noted, some 92,000 are members of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, and have cumulative grade-point averages of 3.8, or higher. Wray also noted that all members elected to the USA Today Academic All-America Team for the two-year college are members of Phi Theta Kappa. In addition, the academic leaders among students at senior colleges and universities are often Phi Theta Kappa transfers. In his article, Wray reminded senior college and university presidents that the most important question for transfer students, whether or not they are members of Phi Theta

Louisburg College recently announced two new vice presidential appointments. Belinda Faulkner accepted the position of vice president for finance at Louisburg College. Faulkner has 15 years of experience as the chief financial officer of a private college. Formerly the chief financial officer at North Carolina Wesleyan College, she brings a wealth of expertise and analytical skill to the position. Louisburg College is thankful for the excellent support rendered by C.L. Gobble and Sharon Moore during the transition period. In addition, Tracey Sala has accepted the position of vice president for enrollment management at Louisburg College. Sala has more than seven years of experience in enrollment management at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge, Iowa. She served four years as an administrator in enrollment services. Sala has experience and proven skill

in the areas of student recruitment, admissions, and enrollment planning. The College is also thankful for the hard work of interim Vice President Ernie Rushing and the enrollment team for their support during the transition period.

Coffee Bar The College made arrangements with Chartwells Dining to install a coffee bar in Cecil W. Robbins Library. The coffee bar is located in the northwest corner of the first floor. The new space began serving coffee in January.

UND CAMPUS • AS SEEN Kappa, relates to general education requirements. At some institutions, transfer students who have completed the associate’s degree are considered to have completed the senior institution’s graduation requirements; at others, students with associate degrees still must complete the additional general education requirements, if any, of the senior institution. Wray emphasized that public institutions often have more flexible regulations than private institutions in this area and the differences often give public institutions the advantage with regard to transfer student recruitment. He also emphasized that an institution’s position on this issue will often determine whether they win transfer students. For freshmen, he writes, “such differences are inconsequential; for transfers, they are so significant that they often affect a student’s decision to enroll at the preferred senior institution.” Wray also encouraged senior institutions to complete block transfer agreements with with two-year colleges that assure that students who complete a parallel degree program (e.g., criminal justice, education, athletic training)

at a two-year college will have completed mandatory freshman and sophomore program requirements requisite to transfer. For senior institutions that wish to enroll transfer students, a primary goal should be to assure that transfers with associate’s degrees can complete typical four-year and five-year degree programs on time. During a 40-year career in higher education, Wray has held administrative positions at six different colleges and universities, including Vanderbilt University where he directed the office of transfer admissions, taught higher education administration, and advised doctoral students. During his career, Wray also directed the office of schools, colleges and universities at the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of The United Methodist Church where his portfolio included international education. He was actively involved in the creation of two successful Methodist-related universities, including Africa University and Universidad Centro Educativo LatinoAmericano in Rosario, Argentina. Enrollment growth at both institutions is significant; in fact, enrollment at UCEL has grown from 15 students to 2500 in 17 years.

Advancement News Holton Renovations In an effort to restore the beauty of Holton Gymnasium, alumnus and trustee Roger Taylor led a campaign to renovate the historic building. The lobby was gutted and cleared to make room for new flooring, lighting, and lighted-glass trophy cases. The cases feature photographs and plaques honoring the members of the Louisburg College Athletic Hall of Fame. The display area has been appropriately named the Roger G. and Gaile D. Taylor Hall of Fame. The concession stand was also removed and rebuilt inside the gymnasium. Other new updates inside the gym include the J. Enid Drake Hurricane Club facility, which features new seating and a special hospitality suite. Trustee Ely Perry recently donated theater-style chairs for the student section in the balcony of the gym. In addition, trustee and alumnus W. Seymour Holt made a pledge that will help with the funding of new bleachers to upgrade the general seating area. The exterior of the gym also received new landscaping. The renovated outdoor space features the Ruth Cooke Gardens in honor of the longtime Louisburg College professor and coach.

HEART ARTof a College BY JADE BIGGIO

inviting - an interesting hybrid of relaxation and energy. The music travels outside through a door casually propped open with a rock. Inside is a visual repository. A congestion of color and offbeat use of everyday objects

when standing on the precipice that great acts are achieved. It is of and busy clutter tells you that the room is alive. A young man sits at a table. He is transfixed by his work and oblivious to the presence of an outsider. Couches, long past their prime, face each other and ask for conversation. Movement from a back room catches your eye. The space pulls you in, and curiosity and the need to be inspired move you forward. The smell of clay is familiar. It is a reminder of a time that begged for imagination. The students are engaged, and they smile and laugh as they work – some triumphantly, some less victoriously. It’s not right away that you notice the professor. When you spot him, he is leaning over a table deep in conversation. “You know what would be cool?” he asks the student. “If you swirled the top of it, you’d have this really interesting shape.” The student’s wide grin and approving nod indicate the idea is well-received. This world is the creation of Louisburg College art professor Will Hinton. Hinton has taught at the College for 24

years. One may question the sanity of a man who, after earning his master’s in fine arts from the prestigious art program at Alfred University, passed on the opportunity to run a pottery business on the Fiji islands. He instead accepted a position as lead designer for a handmade ceramic tile business in New Jersey. In the two years that followed, Hinton applied for teaching jobs at colleges and universities, and he eventually found his way to Louisburg College. “I believe that being visually literate is a vital component of the liberal arts experience which Louisburg College offers. I trust the academic freedom I have in the classes I teach. After 24 years, I still find this to be an exciting, engaging environment in which to work each day,” Hinton said. For 50 semesters, he has challenged, mentored and inspired. He is a favorite among students, fondly remembered by alumni, and respected by his colleagues. Win Neagle is chair of the division of humanities at Louisburg College.

Having worked with Hinton for many years, he has witnessed his co-worker’s ability to engage students. “Will Hinton is one part genius, one part saint, and one part madman stuffed into an offensive lineman’s body,” Neagle said. “For a student, he is a life-changing experience waiting to happen. His commitment to his profession and the young people he teaches is extraordinary and touching.” Hinton recently addressed students, faculty and staff as the keynote speaker at spring convocation. His talk focused on faith. He took the stage with force, beginning his address by unabashedly singing the theme song to the HBO television series The Wire. Eyes closed, the singing professor garnered the attention of his audience. He urged students to recognize that God is both imminently and transcendentally present in our lives, that faith can be eclectic and pluralistic, and that it is important to have enough courage in your faith to ask the difficult questions. He encouraged students to be

ften when standing on the precipice that great acts are achieved. It patient and learn from failure, and he inspired listeners with personal reflections about faith. “I am led by faith to let God be the light in which I see the world around me. My conception of being created in the image of God has nothing whatsoever to do with being a white, male, middle class American. To be created in the image of God, for me, refers to forgiveness, humility and faith. The only way I can wrap my head around this idea of faith is to live a life of knowledge, love and acceptance - not one of perception, ego and achievement,” Hinton told the crowd. It is perhaps this concept of love and acceptance that has afforded Hinton a successful career in higher education and he is in good company. The College has been fortunate to have many talented and dedicated professors throughout its history; and, for an institution that promotes its proud tradition of transforming lives, faculty members like Hinton are fundamental to this mission. His classroom encourages students to uncover places deep inside themselves as they travel through their academic journeys. He is a reflection of the institution’s strong academic tradition and the opportunities the College continues to provide for students today.

Looking Ahead In 2007, the College celebrated its 220th birthday. Founders’ Day was held in February, and festivities included the placing of a commemorative wreath on the gravesite of Matthew Dickinson, the first preceptor of the Franklin Male Academy. The landmark anniversary gives reason to honor the longevity and historic significance of the institution, but the College’s leaders are also laying out plans for the school’s future. In his first year at Louisburg, President Clyburn worked with the board of trustees to outline strategic goals for the College. These initiatives include pursuing model faith-based programs and outcomes; rewarding quality faculty and establishing new academic programs and services; attracting academically prepared students and achieving a balanced student community through strengthened enrollment standards and initiatives; articulating the value of the College to constituencies; addressing

deferred building maintenance with historic sensitivity; and securing new funding sources, maintaining financial stability, and focusing on value-added investments. The board of trustees also approved three new concepts to begin with the 2008-2009 academic year. These include the implementation of a tobacco-free campus, a student dress code, and required chapel and assembly. The new policies will be finalized following student, staff and faculty input and are subject to trustee review. Amid challenges to strengthen the financial stability of the College, Clyburn has put the institution on a path that he believes will increase revenues, reduce expenditures, maintain quality, and assure a bright future for the historic college. “I am convinced that the College is moving in the right direction, and we will continue to move forward with greater efficiency and fiscal health in the months and years ahead,” Clyburn said. “The enduring school must have a clearly articulated mission and vision. We have both. Our vision statement is that Louisburg College will be the model church-related school that prepares students for life and service.”

The School that Transforms Lives

will enable you to gain confidence in yourself. As a faculty member, I make that commitment to you,” he said. “Each of you brings different learning tools to the table. We will help you sharpen these tools. We will help you find your individual voice.”

The Power of Now In an increasingly competitive market, colleges and universities vie for the attention of savvy student consumers. It’s an aggressive business where wealth often seems to dominate. Still, Louisburg College endures. For 221 years, the College has carried out its mission of providing students with a supportive and nurturing community that is rooted in faith and invites young men and women to learn and grow. Perhaps, it is people that perpetuate the College’s endurance. The school is rich with professors who inspire students to learn, coaches who motivate their players, students who are engaged in the academic process, and alumni and friends who give back. In the years ahead, the College will continue to make transformations of its own in order to secure its place in today’s academic world. It is often when standing on the precipice that great acts are achieved.

There is a phrase that is frequently repeated by Louisburg College alumni. I would not be where I am today if it were not for Louisburg College. These words have been uttered by doctors, teachers, attorneys, ministers and CEOs. While they reminisce about championship games, parties and friends, they also remember that Louisburg College provided them with opportunity. Hinton has a talk that he gives to prospective college students. The presentation is about transition, reaching into the unknown, and growing as a community. He gives students large, numbered tiles, and the students work together to arrange them in a giant square on the floor. Once the task is completed, the tiles are turned over and an entirely new image is revealed. “Metacognition is a fancy word that can mean to change what you know,” he tells students. He assures them that the “renaissance state of mind” is alive and well at Louisburg. “The Louisburg College experience

Windows for Education Peer out a window in Main Building today, and you’ll likely see a student strolling along chatting on a cell phone, a group of students piling out of an SUV, or a jogger listening to an i-pod. Now, picture this scene. Replace the cell phone user with a Union soldier carrying a Colt revolver. Instead of students climbing from an SUV, picture four to five hundred soldiers in tents across the campus. In place of the jogger and his i-pod, an army surgeon dispensing morphine and quinine. Constructed in 1857, the view from the windows of Main Building has changed many times over the last 150 years; however, one thing holds true. The building’s occupants have consistently sought the same thing: enlightenment through education. It’s interesting to imagine the different scenes Louisburg College students have watched unfold from their dorm rooms. Today, the United Methodist Men want to change the way the school views its future – literally. Windows for Education is a campaign sponsored by the Raleigh District of The United Methodist Men. The campaign seeks to replace 411 windows across campus, many of which are in disrepair. President Emeritus Dr. Reginald Ponder is excited about the campaign and the college’s relationship with the United Methodist Men. “The four buildings that will receive the new windows provide the historic core of the Louisburg College campus and need these vital improvements,” Ponder said. “For nearly forty years, the Raleigh District United Methodist Men have held their annual retreat on the campus of Louisburg College. These men are fully committed to the mission of Louisburg College, and they have supported that mission through providing scholarships.” In addition to endowed scholarships, the Raleigh District generously gave to Louisburg College in the 1980s by providing substantial funding for the construction of Benson Chapel on campus. The organization is asking for tax-deductible donations to replace windows in historic campus buildings. A new window may be given in honor or memory of a person, class, church or business. A plaque will be prepared for each new window. “The Windows for Education project is a continuation of the important partnership between Louisburg College and the Raleigh District United Methodist Men,” Ponder said. The windows will be new, as will be the scenes that take place outside them. One can only imagine what future Louisburg College students will peer out their windows and see in years to come.

Butler Award will be given to one student every year in honor of the longtime Louisburg College professor. Butler was recognized last spring at Awards Day on April 24 when it was announced that the social and behavioral sciences award was to be named in his honor. Bob, as he prefers to be called, has been teaching at the College since 1962. A high school delegate to Boy’s State, Bob excelled in athletics as a youth, winning awards in football and tennis. He was offered a football scholarship to Virginia Tech, but chose to attend UNC-Chapel Hill, where he graduated in 1958. From 1958-1959 he attended Duke Divinity School, where professor Sid Stafford was his roommate, and Dr. Reginald Ponder lived down the hall. Butler then transferred to Garrett Theological Seminary at Northwestern University. He enjoyed preaching and working with young people, and so he returned to Duke on a Ford Foundation Fellowship and earned a master’s degree in English. During that year, he became friends with Dr. Allen Norris, who was also on a Ford Fellowship and would later become president of Louisburg College. Bob taught English his first three years, and then returned to UNC for a master’s in sociology. In 1970, the college hosted a seminar on the “systems approach,” and Butler used this method to write a basic sociology text that was published by New York Times’ Cambridge Book Company. It was adopted in all 50 states and five foreign countries.

In 1978, McGraw-Hill published Bob’s English handbook, which also utilized “systems approach” principles. Soon after the publication of his sociology text, Butler was named one of the outstanding educators of America, and his biography appeared in the Dictionary of International Biography in London, England. Butler’s family made a surprise visit to the college for Awards Day. Bob’s daughter Martha, son Tony, and brother Dr. Lindley Butler joined Bob on stage as he accepted the award. Lindley Butler also taught at Louisburg College in the 1960’s. Bob enjoys classical music, big band compositions, opera, ballet and golf. He loves Louisburg College and the thousands of students whose lives he has touched.

Fred Lumsden Fearing Louisburg College regrets to share news of the recent death of LC alumnus Fred Fearing. Fearing was inducted into the Louisburg College Athletic Hall of Fame in September 2007. Services for Fearing were held on October 21 at the First United Methodist Church in Elizabeth City, NC. President Clyburn shares thoughts about this treasured alumnus: Fred Fearing was Louisburg College’s finest ambassador in Elizabeth City, NC. An exemplary student athlete, he loved baseball, and he played it with skill for Louisburg. He graduated from the college in 1935. Fred was recently inducted into the Louisburg College Athletic Hall of Fame. With his old glove and Louisburg College jersey in hand, Fred was the oldest member inducted into the inaugural class, and one of the most beloved. He continued to wear our school colors through the years, sharing college publications and his unforgettable smile with people he met in his cherished role as Elizabeth City ambassador. As an alumnus and trustee emeritus, he was a generous contributor to Louisburg College. Fred wanted students to have the same opportunities that he had been given, and he made generous donations to support student scholarships and other campus projects. I am fortunate to have recently met with Fred. The ideal host, he volunteered to give me a tour of the waterfront near his home. During my visit I asked Fred what made Louisburg College so special to him. He replied that Louisburg College was where he met his wonderful wife, Florence. She was also a student at Louisburg, and Fred remembered exactly when and where they met on campus. I am glad that Louisburg College had the recent opportunity to honor Fred, our alumnus and friend, at the Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony. His love for Louisburg College was always evident. He represented the best of our college and alumni as he daily portrayed the Christian values of hospitality, kindness, generosity and compassion. Fred was the man who kept fond memories alive and made many people feel at home.
