Louisburg College Mission Statement Related by faith to The United Methodist Church, Louisburg College is committed to offering a supportive community in which young men and women may mature intellectually, culturally, socially, and spiritually. As a two-year residential institution, we provide a bridge for students to make a successful transition from high school to senior colleges and universities.
n the September 16 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education, social researchers Daniel Yankelovich and Isabella Furth wrote a compelling article, “The Role of Colleges in an Era of Mistrust.” They cited three “waves of mistrust” that have occurred in the United States in the past 75 years. The first wave was created by the Great Depression of the 1930s. The authors credited the mass unemployment and the mistrust of business as the impetus for this lack of trust which lasted until 1941. The second wave from the late 1960s to 1980 lasted about the same length of time. The source of the mistrust during these years was the government highlighted by the Vietnam War and Watergate. Yankelovich and Furth state, “In 1964 an impressive three-quarters of all Americans believed that you can trust the federal government to do the right thing all or most of the time. By 1980 that hefty majority had shrunk to a mere one-fourth minority.” As we lived through this second wave, we also saw trust in business, the professions, colleges, and the news media decline almost as dramatically. The authors state, “So pervasive was the climate of mistrust that it even affected Americans’ attitudes toward one another.” Now, we are living in the third wave of mistrust. It has been fostered by scandals in corporate life (Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, HealthSouth, etc.) and in the church and non-profit sectors (Roman Catholic Church, United Way, Red Cross, etc.). These happenings have changed our lives and have tested our social norms. Yankelovich and Furth write: Not only has the erosion of our social norms led to the scandals that have plagued American corporate life, it has also surfaced in the incivility on display so frequently in public places— aggressive driving, obscenity, violent public confrontations, and the like. It has been a central factor in the proliferation of crudeness and excessive violence in popular culture and entertainment, and in the increasingly polarized and ideological tone of public discourse. This is where I believe Louisburg College comes in. We have a sacred responsibility to the young men and women who matriculate to our College to guide them in the direction of responsible social behavior. The authors of the article cited say, “There is a movement to revitalize and bolster traditional norms among people who are disenchanted with the current situation.” We at Louisburg College are a part of that movement! Yankelovich and Furth continue: The trend back toward absolute values has positive elements. The core values embraced by most Americans—patriotism, individualism, hard work, community, diversity, cooperation, civility—represent a vital mixture of traditionalist and progressive perspectives. These distinguished social researchers challenge the colleges and universities of our nation to be ethical leaders who model sound communication principles in this era of mistrust. These principles should govern our words and actions internally (with students, faculty, and staff ) and externally (to a wide variety of stakeholders). I share with you these 10 principles provided by Yankelovich and Furth as an excellent model for Louisburg College and for us as individuals. 1. Avoid ethically neutral or value-free stands, which in a climate of mistrust are seen as deceitful. 2. Recognize that more is expected from privileged institutions. 3. Recognize that silence, denial, and closed doors are almost always interpreted as evidence of bad faith. 4. Do not assume you will be given the benefit of the doubt. 5. Work out your positions on emotion-laden issues in advance—and communicate them effectively within the institution. 6. Be mindful that anything but plain talk is suspect. 7. Recognize that being “good people” and having “good motives” are not acceptable rationalizations. 8. Respond to the public’s genuine hunger for honesty and integrity. 9. Build trust. 10. Make a conscious effort to move toward a “stewardship” ethic (I call this a “servant” ethic). As I share these thoughts with you, I renew my commitment to lead Louisburg College in a manner that exhibits these principles. At the Fall 2005 Convocation of College, I challenged our students with “Five Keys to Success at Louisburg College.” I close by offering these keys to you. 1. Get your life in right relationship with Jesus Christ. 2. Attend class. 3. Turn in your assignments on time. 4. Get to know your professors (a major benefit of a small college). 5. Do what is right. Thank you for supporting Louisburg College. We need your help as we seek to do what is right and to lead the precious young men and young women who come through our doors to do likewise.

Louisburg College boasts highest enrollment in 15 years “Good, better, best. Never rest until good is better and better is best.” - Mother Goose
his quote from Mother Goose has always been a favorite of mine and has been the motto of the enrollment management team for the past three recruitment cycles. As a result of our commitment to increasing enrollment, the student body has grown from 374 students in the fall of 2002 to 771 students at the start of the fall 2005 semester. This class of 771 students consisted of 262 returning students and an astounding 509 new students. With 509 new students, there were only four other private colleges or universities, out of 36, that brought in more new students than Louisburg College. Those schools were Duke, Wake Forest, Elon, and Campbell University. This is an amazing accomplishment for the college and for our admissions team. Louisburg College has not just focused on the quantity of students,
C O L U M N S
but also on the quality of the students it invites to attend the institution. As a result of this focus, the average grade point average for incoming freshmen has risen from 2.28 in the fall of 2004 to 2.43 for the fall 2005 incoming class. We have also seen an increase in the number of merit scholars that matriculate to the institution. In the fall of 2002, the admissions team only awarded 12 merit scholarships. For the fall 2005 semester, we were pleased to award merit scholarships to 80 students. The enrollment management team would like to invite you to help them in their recruitment efforts. Below is a list of ways that you can get involved and be a part of the admissions team: 1. Attend college fairs in your area with an admissions counselor 2. Volunteer to visit area high schools and educate counselors about Louisburg 3. Establish an endowed scholarship 4. Bring a prospective student to an open house on February 4, March 18, or April 8, 2006, at 10:30 a.m..
5. Contact the admissions office and give us the name and address of a student you know who may be interested in Louisburg Please feel free to use the enrollment management team as a resource.

We look forward to working with you as we strive to recruit bright young people to be a part of the Louisburg College family. -By Stephanie Buchanan ’97 Vice President for Enrollment Management
Faculty members publish poetry, journal articles Two Louisburg College professors have recently had their work published. English instructor Larry Johnson’s poem “Frozen Danube” was included in the most recent poetry anthology published by Edwin Mellen Press. In 270 lines of blank verse, the poem illuminates the tensions between the death of the Roman Empire and classicism and the infancy of Christianity. Narrated in the voice of the Roman poet Claudian, the reader is taken on a primal spiritual journey in which the narrator encounters mysteries that go far deeper than the established belief systems of the fourth century. Dr. Rob DeLong’s article “TatConjugated PAMAM Dendrimers as Delivery Agents for Antisense” has been accepted for publication in the journal Pharmaceutical Research. DeLong, who was a visiting research professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this summer, coauthored an article in the Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications entitled “pDNA bioparticles: comparative heterogeneity, surface, binding, and activity analyses.” He has also been invited to submit an article for the Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
Gupton Award shared Faye Griffin, administrative assistant to the president, and Ronnie Massenburg, housekeeping supervisor, were honored with the 2005 Bessie Arrington Gupton Distinguished Service Award. The award was established in memory of Mrs. Bessie Arrington Gupton, class of 1908, by her sons, Samuel Gupton and Willis Gupton ’42. The award is given to members of the Louisburg College family who demonstrate outstanding and extraordinary service to the college.
Griffin joined Louisburg College in 1990. “As executive administrative assistant to the President, Faye truly serves each student, staff and faculty member, and visitor—everyday,” says President Ponder. Massenburg has worked with the college’s housekeeping department since 1998. “It is well known that Ronnie is the person to call when you are in a pinch,” says Stephanie Buchanan. “I am very pleased that Ronnie’s dedication has been formally recognized by the presentation of this award.”
Outstanding faculty member recognized Bunn native James “Buster” White was awarded the Naomi Dickens Shaw Award for Teaching Excellence during the 2005 commencement ceremony. A 1976 Louisburg College graduate, White joined the psychology department in August 1979. He received his undergraduate degree at East Carolina University and a master’s degree from North Carolina State University. White initially joined the college in 1979 as director of counseling services. He became a full-time faculty member in 1999. Lauded as a “helpful and caring professor,” White states that “he is honored by the award and looks forward to further developing his teaching skills.”
Louisburg College Night at the Mudcats The Louisburg College community kicked off the fall semester at the Louisburg College Night at the Carolina Mudcats on August 29. Dr. Ponder threw out the first pitch and English professor Craig Eller sang “The National Anthem.” According to Vice President for Enrollment Management Stephanie Buchanan, “This night has become a much anticipated annual event where students, faculty, staff, and alumni support the college and meet with the community.”
Campus Care Days revitalizes MPR With the help of Sprint’s community relations team, Louisburg College faculty and staff tackled two muchneeded projects for Campus Care Days in August. In addition to a fresh coat of paint in the multipurpose room of the Jordan Student Center, new parking lines were painted in the auditorium/theater parking lot.
Louisburg College and Hurricane fans support Katrina victims Louisburg College sponsored several fundraising projects to assist residents of the Gulf Coast states devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Alex Maultsby ’75, Louisburg College chaplain, spearheaded the collection of health kits for use by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). The kits contained items needed for basic human hygiene like soap, bandages, and a towel. In addition to collecting the health kits, Louisburg College matched $1,000 in donations contributed during a home football game in September and the Student Government Association held a bake sale which raised over $100.

Louisburg News Art professor shares his summer
hen former Louisburg College professor Harriette Sturges needed someone to offer art lessons at her church’s vacation bible school, she knew just the person to ask—Louisburg College art professor Will Hinton. As coordinator of children’s ministries at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Durham, Sturges planned a week-long retreat for more than 70 children ranging in age from three to thirteen. Many of the children lived in a local homeless shelter or transitional housing. “I knew Will could do more than just techniques of potting, and he did,” said Reverend Sturges. She estimates that Hinton contributed well over one hundred hours to the project. “He certainly was a positive influence on all of us and an ambassador for Louisburg College,” added Sturges. Hinton, a 22-year veteran of Louisburg, teaches art classes, directs the college’s traveling exhibitions gallery, and has served as faculty senate chair.
His pottery was included in NC Craft 04: A Celebration of Penland’s 75th Anniversary held on the East Carolina University campus last fall. A Gates County, North Carolina native, Hinton earned a master of fine arts from Alfred University in New York. Before the workshop began, Hinton crafted 120 earthenware bowls. Although they were all roughly the same size and shape, they each had unique markings. “The bowls’ shapes and markings were a metaphor of our week together,” he said. “All of the participants brought different gifts to the table.” Throughout the week, the children used their bowls for many activities including eating snacks and taking communion. Hinton chose to use the pottery’s circular shape as “a teaching tool about community and acceptance of cultural diversity.” Hinton taught the children potting techniques intertwined with lessons about history, geology, and culture. As the participants learned about the long history of potterymaking, he explained how the clay that was used to make the bowls was formed when the wind and rain slowly eroded granite rock over thousands of —Will Hinton years. The group also studied pottery from China, Japan, the Middle East, Italy, Greece, and France, as well as Native American pottery. “At the end of the week, they took their bowls with them as gifts they did not earn,” shared Hinton. “I believe a gift is like a sense of self-worth. We don’t earn it, we don’t lose it, we are simply asked to accept this gift and live a life of thanks.”
“I believe a gift is like a sense of selfworth. We don’t earn it, we don’t lose it, we are simply asked to accept this gift and live a life of thanks.”

The Oak to be published For the first time since 1996, Louisburg College’s yearbook will be published. The Oak, initially produced in 1923, is being compiled by a student-led yearbook staff and will be advised by new English instructor Marjorie Newman. The Oak was continuously published from 1923 until 1996, except for a few volumes during The Great Depression. The publication of a yearbook is both a great tradition for students and an invaluable tool for the alumni office.
“I was very happy to learn that The Oak is going to be published again,” says Alumni Director Mary Kate Keith. “Yearbooks provide the college, and especially the Alumni Association, with an important historical document of the people who were here and the events that occurred during a particular year. For all the years that we did not have a yearbook it’s been a real loss of Louisburg College history for the entire college community. Bringing back The Oak will provide the students with a special way to record their time at Louisburg College with pride and will serve as a wonderful memory in years to come. Who doesn’t enjoy looking back at old yearbook photos to take a trip down memory lane?”
Bestselling author speaks at Louisburg
ward-winning writer and composer James McBride spoke to Louisburg College freshmen on October 24 in the college auditorium. McBride’s memoir, The Color of Water, won the 1997 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Literary Excellence, was an ALA Notable Book of the Year, and spent more than two years on The New York Times best seller list. To date, the book has sold over 1.7 million copies in the United States. Selected by instructors of Louisburg’s freshman seminar course as required reading for all first-year students, the New York Times Book Review says that The Color of Water is “complex and moving... suffused with issues of race, religion and
identity. Yet those issues, so much a part of the character’s lives and stories, are not central. The triumph of the book—and of their lives—is that race and religion are transcended in these interwoven histories by family love, the sheer force of a mother’s will and her unshakable insistence that only two things really mattered: school and church...” One of the lead faculty members for the Crossroads program, Will Hinton, helped choose The Color of Water for Louisburg’s freshmen. “Our Crossroads’ students are leaving the support of their families and are moving from the known to the unknown into a new support group. This book offers a model of the trials and tribulations of a different type
of family.” McBride is a former staff writer for The Washington Post, People Magazine, and Boston Globe. His work has also appeared in Essence, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times. McBride, who is an accomplished musician, has written songs for Anita Baker, Grover Washington, Jr., Purafe, Gary Gurton, and the Silver Burdett music textbook series. A native of New York, McBride is a graduate of New York City public schools. He studied composition at The Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio and received a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University. C O L U M N S
Mentors live it up on campus D
o you ever feel like you live, eat, and breathe your job? Well, you are not alone—the Louisburg College residence hall mentors know exactly how you feel! The sixteen men and women who comprise the mentor staff literally live at work; there is one mentor for each floor of each campus residence hall. A mentor’s bedroom is a dorm room, their kitchen is a cafeteria, and they need lots of quarters for their laundry. The mentors serve as advisors, counselors, disciplinarians, and leaders. They have to be guardians, teachers, and social workers, all at the same time. Louisburg College began its mentor program in 2001 as an alternative to the traditional residence life structure used at most colleges and universities. Vice President for Student Life Jason Modlin explains that the mentor program was implemented to provide positive role models for Louisburg’s freshmen and sophomores. “Our mentors serve as an example of how to be successful in college,” says Modlin. All mentors have earned at least a bachelor’s degree and can share their own college experiences with the students. Second-year mentor David Ferguson, who served as a residence assistant at Duke University before joining the Louisburg staff in 2004, praises the mentor program. “Our mentors are
C O L U M N S
equipped and educated to work with college students,” says Ferguson. He is philosophical about his role as mentor. “I love to work with college-age students who are being challenged educationally, socially, and religiously. It is important for them to have guidance during this time of growth and freedom,” believes Ferguson. Toni Champ, who is beginning her first semester as a mentor, is no stranger to Louisburg College. A 2003 graduate and former softball player, Champ is eager to share her firsthand knowledge with the students on her hall. She admits that she is “adjusting to her role as a rule enforcer.” Champ believes that the mentors’ own college experiences make them stronger leaders. “I can prepare them for the move to a four-year school after two years at Louisburg,” Champ states. Louisburg College mentors’ responsibilities include more than keeping residence life running smoothly. Each mentor is assigned other duties ranging from coordinating student activities to assisting with athletic teams. Mentors are responsible for intramurals, clubs, community service projects, and the career/transfer office. Student activities coordinator, cheerleading coach, and mentor Amanda Brown believes that “student activities are
important because they give students an opportunity to relax and do something with their friends outside of classes and practices.” Brown is especially excited about the Campus Activities Board (CAB). “CAB allows the students to plan and decide which events will be held on campus,” shares Brown. At the end of September, the Student Government Association and CAB will participate in the National Association for Campus Activities Conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The students will attend sessions for campus programming, student government, diversity and program implementation. Homecoming Week, October 19-22, was planned by mentor-led student groups. It takes a committed person to juggle the responsibilities of a residence life mentor. It takes a truly remarkable person to relish those responsibilities. As David Ferguson says, “I consider it a great privilege to serve the students at Louisburg College. I want to support our students as they face the challenges of adulthood.” 2005 Mentors: Front row, l to r - Jermaine Porter, Katherine Robinson, Amanda Brown, David Ferguson, and Chris Dunway.

Hurricane Sports Fall Hurricane’s sports update Men’s Soccer Preparing for their fourth appearance in the NJCAA National Tournament in five years, the men’s soccer team is ranked second in the nation. As Region X regular season champs, Region X tournament champions, and the Mid-Atlantic district champions, the undefeated Hurricanes have their eyes set on the national championship. The team outscored their opponents 6311 over the course of their first eleven games. Sophomore Tom Woolard is currently leading the team in goals with sixteen in the last eleven games. Osomanu Otoo is right on his heels with twelve goals in the last eleven games. Coach Dave Sexton is relying on the leadership of his two sophomore captains, Ryan McAloon and Gary Muir, to deliver leadership on and off the field.
Women’s Soccer Coach Michael Michalakis entered his second season with his largest recruiting class to date. This year, he brought on twelve freshmen in the recruiting class of 2005. The team finished the season with a record of 4-8-3. The Lady Hurricanes lost their final game, competing for the Region X Championship against the Lady Pioneers of Spartanburg Methodist College with a score 1-4. The team looks forward to participating in a number of tournaments during the spring season. Coach Michalakis has started his recruiting season for next year. He hopes to add some new talented players to the program to form a competitive team for the 2006 fall season.
Volleyball The women’s volleyball team is enjoying its most successful season since the program was resurrected three years ago. The Hurricanes began their pre-season with a tournament at Pitt Community College against the returning region champions, Cape Fear Community College, and several out-of-region opponents. The month of September featured a successful trip to Maryland
where the Hurricanes returned 2-1 against out-of-region teams. The team has only fallen to two region opponents, the number one ranked Cape Fear Community College and number two Spartanburg Methodist College. Both matches resulted in a tight battle in front of a packed home audience that ended in a 3-1 decision loss for the Canes. Coach Jenna Hinton has been impressed with the team’s five freshmen, all of whom are receiving plenty of court time and are included in the starting line up for every match. The biggest surprise of the season would have to be the amazing transformation of sophomore Terri Hines. Hines has dominated in the front court for the Canes and leads the team in blocks and kills. The Canes were on the road for the majority of their matches in October.
Football The football team has displayed an adroit ability to avoid pitfalls and overcome obstacles during its inaugural season. The team has lived up to all the pre-season hype and the campus has embraced all the exciting gridiron action. The stands were packed for the first home football game in over seventy years, and the Hurricanes did not leave their fans disappointed. The Hurricanes rolled over Emory & Henry College in an impressive 34-23 victory. Defensively, the team has played well all year. The season’s highlight occurred in a game against Walter Reed Military Academy when the defense held them to 32 total yards of offense. Larsenio Small has been the defensive team leader throughout the season; his leadership and performance have been outstanding. The team had a good showing against Georgia Military, which is currently ranked tenth in the nation. The football staff is looking forward to the off-season speed training and weight lifting schedule, as well as replenishing the talent pool through recruiting more top notch student-athletes. Stay tuned for our upcoming locker room project fund raiser.
Coach Rick Mohlmann is appreciative for the outpouring of support from the student body, faculty, staff and community. The football program has certainly generated plenty of excitement for Louisburg College!
Cross Country The men’s and women’s cross country team fared well during its inaugural season. The men’s team experienced injuries, but Kenneth Stergas and DaMon Brown have emerged as the team’s leaders. Coach Rob Delong credits team captains Stergas and Alex McCray for their efforts in leading this young team in its first season. The women’s team is led by sophomore Christina Jones who has racked up some impressive times for the Canes. The five-member squad is training daily to decrease their times and maximize their potential. The LC Hurricane runners finished their first season on a bright note— runner up to Spartanburg Methodist College. Kenny Stergas and Da’Mon Brown clicked off 6:05-6:10 mile splits until midway through the third mile when Kenny suffered a hip flexor. He toughed it out, and Da’Mon passed him at the fourth mile on the way to a personal best time of 33:15. Come-back kid Alex McCray also fought off the pain of his healing ankle tendon tear, finishing in a respectable 37:01 and narrowly fending off one of Spartanburg’s runners. He was followed by Titus Pannel, Daniel Parker and Brian Scott. All finished strongly for Louisburg. On the girls side, Christina Jones finished in 8th place overall for the girls, just over two minutes behind Spartanburg’s runner. The rest of the girls (Hillary Veals, Caitlin Fields and Frankia Prince) finished strongly with Caitlin having a best time, again a testament to her dedication all season.

We Believe In People
Distinguished Alumnus Mike Boddie ’77 shares his philosophy on work and life
“We believe in people.” Four simple words encapsulate Mike Boddie’s philosophy of business and life. In fact, his peoplecentered outlook is so important to the Boddie family, it is emblazoned on the wall of the Boddie-Noell headquarter’s lobby in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Boddie, recipient of Louisburg College’s 2005 Distinguished Alumnus Award and member of the board of trustees, believes that his company’s philosophy is shared by Louisburg. “In our business, we know it is important to focus on our employees, so they can focus on the guests. BoddieNoell realizes that the ongoing development of its staff is crucial to the overall success of the company,” says Boddie. “At Louisburg College, the teachers’ primary focus is on the students. Developing their potential is the most important goal at Louisburg.” 12

Boddie-Noell Enterprises was formed in 1962 by Mike’s father, Mayo Boddie, Sr., his uncle Nick Boddie, and his great uncle Carleton Noell. The three men opened one of the first Hardee’s franchises in Fayetteville, North Carolina when fast food was a new concept. Continuing the tradition of working with family, Mike is the president of the Hardee’s division while his brother Bill ’74 is the president and chief executive officer of Boddie-Noell Enterprises, Inc. Their older brother, Mayo Jr. ’73, heads the Texas Steakhouse and Saloon chain. When the family was featured in the December 1997 edition of Southern Living magazine, their father, Mayo Boddie, Sr. praised his son’s camaraderie. “I couldn’t ask for brothers to get along any better,” said Mayo. “That’s been our strongest link to the past—our ability to get along.” Mike Boddie says he grew up in the business and spent many summers working in Roanoke Rapids. After receiving a degree in business from East Carolina University in December 1980, Boddie began assistant manager training at a Hardee’s in Norfolk, Virginia. He and his father believed that in order to effectively run the company, he needed to experience the day-to-day operations of a restaurant. Boddie realized at a young age that many young people did not have the opportunities that he did. While his father encouraged him to join the family business, he always knew that if he had chosen another career path he would have had his family’s support. “My father just wanted me to give it a try. And I did,” shares Boddie. Boddie is particularly proud of his company’s support of charitable causes. In addition to the Boddie family’s contributions to Louisburg College programs like Learning Partners, Boddie-Noell Enterprises champions many groups including the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and Special Olympics. During its 2005 fundraising campaign for MDA, Hardee’s customers at all 314 restaurants were asked to purchase shamrocks in support of neuromuscular disease research. Between February 15 and March 31, 2005, customers and employees raised

Development News Insuring Louisburg College’s future Give your house and live in it by Martin K. Green, Jr., CLU, ChFC Member Agent – The Nautilus Group Dan and Della wanted to do something for Louisburg College. They considered making a current gift of their residence, but decided against it because they like their home and wanted to stay there until death. The logical solution seemed to be a bequest. They could revise their will and transfer their house to Louisburg College after the death of the second spouse.
Here is how it works: Dan and Della may deed a personal residence or farm to Louisburg College through a retained life estate agreement. The deed indicates that the owners reserve the right to use the property for the rest of their lives. At the death of the last life-tenant, whether Dan or Della, the property is available to Louisburg College to sell or use some other way. Before the property deed is conveyed to the Louisburg College, the property must be appraised to determine the fair market value. Then the life expectancy of Dan and Della, the life tenants, are considered along with other factors to determine the present value of the remainder interest. This amount represents the charitable gift value of the arrangement and is the amount the donors may claim as an income tax charitable deduction. It is precisely these income tax deduction features that make the retained life estate agreement so attractive. If the property were transferred through the will at death, no income tax deduction would be allowed. But making the transfer during life (while retaining the right to use the property) creates the deduction, because the transfer is irrevocable. Also, removing the property from one’s estate may reduce estate taxes and probate costs later. Dan and Della would be expected to maintain insurance, pay property taxes, care for typical maintenance and repair items, and permit Louisburg College to assist as appropriate.
Then Dan and Della heard about a special provision in the tax code allowing them to give their house to Louisburg College now, receive a sizable income tax deduction, and still be able to live in their home for the rest of their lives. For them, this seemed a perfect solution.

Louisburg College endowment grows to $10 million Louisburg College’s endowment has reached the $10 million mark according to UBS Financial Services. Valued at just over $3.1 million in April 2003, the growth is attributed to the generous contributions of supporters and the investment returns realized using a long-term, disciplined strategy toward asset and risk management. The $4 million bequest from alumnus Jack Morris ’38 of Southern Pines was a major factor in the growth of the endowment and a number of smaller bequests and gifts have brought the endowment to the current level. “The endowment for Louisburg College is one of the essential pillars for building the financial stability of the College,” says President Reginald Ponder. “The recent growth of the endowed funds has been a significant step for Louisburg College. It is important that this trend continue in order for the College to be accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Reaching the $10 million milestone for the endowment is a significant step for Louisburg College. I encourage all alumni, friends, and supporters of Louisburg College to help the College attain the $20 million mark,” he adds.
Sprint donates for Learning Partners scholarships In September, Sprint donated $5,000 for Learning Partners scholarships. “We are grateful to Sprint for their support,” says Laura Arrington, director of learning support and disability services. “Because of their generosity, more students with learning differences will receive the help they need to thrive at Louisburg College.” Sprint is extremely supportive of Louisburg College. In the past they have supported many areas of the college including the Allen de Hart Concert Series and Campus Care Days.

Michael Privette Bill and Hazel Bryant Mullen Memorial Scholarship Fund
his July, sophomore Michael Privette of Monroe, North Carolina, spent a week in the Caribbean. While he experienced an enjoyable stay on the island of Trinidad, sightseeing and spending time on the beach were not a part of his itinerary. Instead, Michael, his family, and several members of his church, visited Trinidad on a church mission trip. The group ran a week long Vacation Bible School at Calvary Baptist Church in Arima, Trinidad. During his freshman year, Michael was very active in volunteer service projects with his Crossroads class. He made weekly visits to a local elementary school where he helped in the classroom, distributed lunches, and supervised playground activities. Michael, a member of the Louisburg College soccer team, is the recipient of the Bill and Hazel Bryant Mullen Memorial Scholarship Endowment. The Mullens bequeathed $1.4 million to Louisburg College in 1997 to be used for merit scholarships.

Teri Hines The Douglas Lee Angleton Endowed Scholarship Fund
eri Hines was one of Ron Clark’s kids. Clark, Disney’s Teacher of the Year in 2000, taught Hines fifth grade in Aurora, NC. “Mr. Clark has had a huge impact on my life,” shares Teri. “He paid for a group of us to attend an SAT preparation course and made sure we could afford the testing fee.” Helen Ayscue Bonner ’48 helped Teri choose Louisburg College. “Mrs. Helen taught my parents elementary school and worked with Mr. Clark,” says Teri. “She and I served on a committee for our local Boys and Girls’ Club. She brought me on a tour of Louisburg, and I loved it!” A member of the volleyball team, Teri hopes to transfer to Peace College in Raleigh, NC for her junior year. “I would like to become a teacher,” says Teri. “My mother owns a daycare, and I love to work with small children.” The Douglas Lee Angleton Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 by Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Angleton in memory of their son, Douglas, who graduated from Louisburg in 1977.

Kristy Starr The Will and Sara Condon Rodgers Memorial Scholarship Endowment
ophomore Kristy Starr is ambitious. A member of the Lady Hurricane’s women’s soccer team, Kristy’s goal is to graduate first in her class. Her 4.0 grade point average is maintained while juggling campus activities and soccer. Kristy’s roommate is her sister, Stacie. “My scholarship package played a huge part in my decision to attend Louisburg College,” says Kristy. “Financial Aid Director Sean Van Pallandt is great, and he helped me find all of the scholarships for which I was eligible. Without this financial aid, I would not have been able to attend Louisburg.” The Will and Sara Condon Rodgers Memorial Scholarship Endowment was created in 1989 by the estate of Sara Condon Rodgers. A scholarship competition is held in the spring to select the recipients.

Michael Murphy Mullen Endowment, Bluebird Leadership Scholarship
riginally from California, Michael Murphy has lived in North Carolina for ten years. He was home schooled from third grade through twelfth grade. When searching for the right college, Michael looked for a school where he could maintain personal contact with his professors. When he applied to Louisburg, he and his mom had many questions about paying for college. Vice President for Enrollment Management Stephanie Buchanan ’97 helped them research scholarships. After reviewing Michael’s transcripts, it was determined that he was eligible for merit-based academic scholarships like the Mullen Endowment. “With the financial aid and scholarships I received, my first year of college was practically paid for,” says Michael. With a 3.9 grade point average, Michael says that the “hard work is paying off.” As a campus leader, Michael was also chosen as an inaugural recipient of the Bluebird Leadership Scholarship. The Bluebird Scholarship is funded by Bluebird Habitat, Inc., a nonprofit organization created by Fenner Spivey ’49 and his wife Fran. The organization’s vision is to rebuild the declining bluebird population by selling handcrafted bird houses and providing education for attracting and maintaining bluebirds in local neighborhoods.

Romey Bracey The John L. Cameron Athletic Scholarship
freshman from the southside of Chicago, Romey Bracey grew up in a neighborhood where more than half of his classmates did not graduate from high school, and a precious few made it to college. Romey was determined to make it; he used his drive to succeed, a strong academic record, and his love for baseball to chart his path to success. Romey learned about Louisburg College through an unlikely source—a coach at North Carolina A&T in Greensboro saw a tape of Romey playing baseball and immediately suggested that he contact Louisburg College head baseball coach Tommy Atkinson. After tryouts, Romey was asked to join the Hurricanes. Although vastly different from the big city life in Chicago, Romey enjoys Louisburg for its friendliness. “Since I’ve been here, I’ve had nothing but a positive experience,” shares Romey. “My professors are helpful, everything is easy to get to, and everyone is friends with everyone.” Romey is thankful for the Cameron family and their willingness to support the educations of Louisburg College students. “I would like to thank the Cameron family because they gave me an opportunity to pursue higher education. Without their donation, I wouldn’t have been able to attend Louisburg College,” says Romey. “I feel honored and greatly appreciative of this family’s generosity.” The Cameron Athletic Scholarship was established by Dr. and Mrs. John Cameron in 1994 to honor and memorialize Louisburg College athletes and coaches. The late Dr. Cameron served as athletic director and faculty member at Louisburg College from 1937 until 1942. Dr. and Mrs. Cameron’s son, John, is a current member of the board of trustees.

Melody Jo Williams The United Methodist Foundation Scholarship and the Cecil W. Robbins Methodist Grant
elody Jo Williams from Hyde County, NC enjoys challenges. As a sophomore on the Lady Hurricanes fastpitch softball team, she is a leader on and off the field. With a nearly perfect grade point average, MJ carries a full academic load while playing first base for Louisburg’s new softball coach, Don Gines. The Lady Canes are scheduled to play 61 games this spring and hope to make their second trip to the national tournament. During her freshman year, MJ shared her volunteering spirit with others. She helped raise money for the Red Cross, volunteered at a local elementary school, participated in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and served as an orientation leader for the fall 2005 semester. MJ plans to transfer to Bluefield College in West Virginia to major in physical education. She would also like to coach high school softball. “I am grateful for the scholarships I received at Louisburg,” says MJ. “Each one has been tremendously helpful to my family.”

Sarah Barratiere United Methodist Foundation Scholarship and the Cecil W. Robbins Methodist Grant
arah Barratiere has lived on both coasts and few states in between. As an “Army brat,” she has lived in Washington, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Minnesota, and North Carolina. “I have enjoyed my life. You do have to make adjustments when you move around a lot, but I feel that I am more well-rounded from the experiences I have had,” shares Sarah. The sophomore soccer player graduated from Kinston High School in Kinston, NC, and hopes to attend a senior instituion in Maryland or Tennessee where she will major in physical therapy. “I love Louisburg for its small campus and class size,” says Sarah. “I hope to find a similar school when I transfer, but I know that I may have to branch out to find the right college for my major.” Sarah enjoys the volunteer experiences she has had at Louisburg—she works on the Habitat for Humanity house on the weekends. “I am extremely grateful for the scholarships I received,” says Sarah. “I would not have been able to afford a private college education without this assistance.”

Charmaine Harris Chartwell’s Endowment and The Blue Bird Leadership Scholarship
reshman Charmaine Harris relied on a friend’s advice when she chose Louisburg College. “A friend from home, Sherita Clay, was playing volleyball at Louisburg, so I came for a visit,” says Charmaine. The Saratoga, NC native turned down opportunities to play volleyball at other schools to attend Louisburg. “I wanted a college that was close to home and small,” she says. “When I visited Louisburg to try out for Coach Jenna Hinton, I knew it was right for me.” Charmaine is an education major who loves math. “Jeff Olbrys is the best professor,” believes Charmaine. She plans to transfer to East Carolina University after graduating from Louisburg. Charmaine was chosen as one of a select few to serve as a Louisburg College Ambassador. Ambassadors help the admissions team with campus tours and open houses. She also is participating in Louisburg’s annual student phonathon. “I have enjoyed talking with former students about what is happening at Louisburg and how much things have changed,” says Charmaine. “The financial aid package that Louisburg offered me definitely helped me make the decision between attending Louisburg or another school,” she says. “I would like to thank all of the donors for their support, because scholarships help a lot!” C O L U M N S

When I joined the Alumni Association Board of Directors several years ago, the future of Louisburg College was uncertain. Enrollment was down, buildings were in need of repair, grounds needed attention, and the college was in jeopardy of losing its accreditation. Under the leadership of Dr. Reginald Ponder, the Board of Trustees, and faculty and staff, this fall, Louisburg College had the fourth highest freshman enrollment of all private colleges in North Carolina. This was a tremendous accomplishment made possible by people committed to give their time and energy in order to save Louisburg College. While the leaders, faculty and staff have done a wonderful job in bringing the college back to life, we, the alumni, have a responsibility to ensure that the college is financially secure for the future. The time that you spent at Louisburg College impacted who you are today. To those who contribute regularly to the college, I thank you for your continued support. It is important that we remember Louisburg College in order to provide future generations the same opportunity we had in starting our adult lives with a positive support system— academically, personally, and spiritually. There are numerous ways to support the college financially. Many of you have been contacted about contributing to the Alumni Board Library Project to replace the drapes and furniture that have been in the library since it was built in the mid 1960s. You may also send a check, become a participant in an ongoing campaign, or establish an endowment. Please contact the Alumni office at 919497-3245 to discuss the appropriate plan for you. If you are unable to make a financial contribution, call the college to see when campus recruiters are going to be in your area visiting local high schools. They welcome having alumni come and share experiences with prospective students. If you live in the Louisburg area, volunteer your time to support campus clean-up days, attend athletic events, or support the Allen de Hart Concert Series. The Alumni Board is planning “alumni receptions” in Durham, Zebulon, Richmond, Raleigh, and the Tidewater area between December 2005 and March 2006. We would appreciate your help in contacting fellow alumni. Call the Alumni Office for information. Also, don’t forget to mark your calendars for Alumni Weekend from March 31 - April 1, 2006—we hope to have a large crowd! In closing, please take a few moments to reflect on how your time at Louisburg College influenced your life. I hope that your memories are as fond as mine. It is a very special place that thousands of special people have passed through since 1787. With your help, Louisburg College will still be standing and guiding students, young and old, in 2087! Every contribution, however great or small, will help make that dream a reality. Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you at Alumni Weekend in March! Sincerely,
Lynda Wootten Hudson ‘68 President -Alumni Board of Directors 34

1930s alumni reunite at Commencement 2005
ver seventy years after their own commencement ceremonies, members of the classes of 1930, 1933, and 1935 met May 7, 2005 to watch the class of 2005 receive their diplomas. Fred Fearing ’35, Natalie Gould Mandell ’35, Bud Smith ’35, Mable Crickmore Sloan ’30, and Sophia Clifton Wall ’33 enjoyed an afternoon of reminiscing and fellowship. “Our graduation ceremony was held at Louisburg United Methodist Church,” remembered Mandell who traveled from Manteo, North Carolina. Mable Crickmore Sloan was the senior member in attendance. At 95, she is still very active and was pleased to be invited to the campus. Mrs. Sloan’s daughter helped her make the trip from Rocky Mount, NC and presented her mother with a corsage to wear for the event. Other highlights of the ceremony included the annual awarding of the Isaac D. Moon Award and the Brantley Award. The Issac D. Moon Award is presented annually to the most outstanding male and female candidates for graduation in the fields of leadership, scholarship, and citizenship as determined by a vote of the faculty and staff. The 2005 recipients were Latoya Davis of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina and Joe Pietropaoli of Phoenix, Maryland. The Moon Award was established by the sophomore class of 1961 in honor of Professor Moon, a member of the faculty from 1936 until 1970. The Brantley Award, presented to the male and female graduates with the highest full-time, two-year scholastic average, was established by former trustee Reverend Allen Brantley. Matthew Ramsey of Zebulon, North Carolina and Rachel Cross of Fuquay Varina, North Carolina were the 2005 recipients.
