FROM THE PRESIDENT

“Some liberal arts colleges could do their work just about anywhere. If a meteorological mishap picked them up and plopped them down far from their original spots, they could carry on just as they had been. “Millsaps...is not one of those colleges. “Its identity and history are so closely tied to its place that separating the college from its location is a near impossibility. Millsaps simply wouldn’t be Millsaps anywhere else.” – An excerpt from Colleges That Change Lives, fourth edition.

M

aking the most of the benefits of our location in the heart of the capital city of Mississippi is a key element of Millsaps College’s new strategic plan, “Across the Street and Around the Globe: Partnerships and Influence at Millsaps College.” We are not alone in the belief that our setting is significant. Recently Millsaps’ location was mentioned as a distinctive characteristic in the latest edition of the widely-respected college guidebook, Colleges That Change Lives. The book profiles 40 colleges that educate undergraduates in ways that are truly life changing. The book’s description of the College affirms the belief I’ve held since my first visit to campus nearly three years ago. We’re a mile north of the Capitol with opportunities for students to connect with leaders in government and business; we’re across the street from a great medical school and in the middle of an extensive medical community where many students enjoy internships; we’re next door to the Belhaven community with its rich, Southern literary, musical, and cultural legacy; and we’re across West Street from Midtown where our students serve, partner with, and learn from the families in this historic Jackson community. Of course, our location is not exclusive to Jackson. We also have a footprint in Yucatán, 750 miles south of Jackson, on our 4,500acre biocultural reserve, Kaxil Kiuic, and at the Else School Center for Business and Culture, named Casa Millsaps, in Merida. The College’s presence in Yucatán extends the reach of the Millsaps education to include international study across multiple academic disciplines, including hands-on research in areas such as tropical ecology, geology and archaeology; conservation practices and site preservation, recognized recently by the Archaeological Institute of America; and service, where Millsaps students mentor Maya youth to help them overcome barriers to a high school education. Our location is indeed a significant part of our story, as Colleges That Change Lives indicates. As one of the few highly ranked national liberal arts colleges located in a metropolitan area—not to mention a capital city—and with international facilities in Yucatán, Millsaps provides opportunities that few other colleges can match, both across the street and around the globe.

MEET A STUDENT

Lily Womble, a junior from Birmingham, Ala., is a European Studies major focusing on the roles of women in the developing world. She plans to graduate in December 2013 and hopes to complete an internship at a humanitarian agency or perhaps move to India or Kenya to work with organizations that help empower women and girls. Q: What sparked your interest in the role of women in developing countries? A: In high school I wrote a paper on sex trafficking in the United States, and my perspective on life changed. The Polaris Project (polarisproject.org) estimates that 100,000 children are enslaved in the sex trade in the United States each year. I have had a desire to learn as much as I can and to bring awareness and justice to oppression that affects women. This led to an internship with the Women’s Fund of Mississippi, the Association of Women’s Rights in Development conference in Istanbul, Turkey, and to an ambassadorship with the documentary “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.”

Q: What does your Half the Sky ambassadorship involve? A: I organized a screening of the documentary for the Millsaps and Jackson communities. With the help of several passionate women and men on campus, I have started an education and fundraising campaign for girls and women in the developing world. Q: How did your blog, Smart Girls Out Loud, come about? A: Last year I stumbled upon an organization called Smart Girls at the Party that lifts up “girls who are changing the world by being themselves.” This project creates webisodes of passionate smart girls and encourages them to go after their dreams. I have learned that people are hungry for hope that their dreams are possible; young women are hungry for mentors, and professional women are hungry to see the next generation of women succeed.

MEET A PROFESSOR

Dr. Holly M. Sypniewski is an associate professor of classics, chair of the Department of Classical Studies, and director of the Core Curriculum. She has a bachelor’s from the University of Cincinnati and a master’s and doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Q: How popular are classes in classics? A: Ancient cultures really never go out of style. Just think about the recent stream of movies in popular media: “300” and “Clash of the Titans,” among others. Students, particularly young ones, are almost always fascinated by ancient cultures. Greek and Roman mythology classes still fill on college campuses throughout the U.S. Any foreign culture, past or present, can be relevant to you if you open your mind to it, just as any field of study has something interesting to teach everyone. Q: Who is your favorite personality from the classics? A: Hands down, Cicero. Cicero was one of the most brilliant Roman politicians and a master of Roman rhetoric. His speeches give us amazing insight into the decline of the Roman Republic and the sophisticated culture of

the Roman world in the first century B.C.E. Cicero was a brilliant writer, a dedicated statesman, but a social climber and shameless self-promoter. I can't resist him. Q: What location would you like for all of your classics students to visit during a trip abroad, if possible, and why? A: In the past, I would have said Rome. It is my favorite city, but in 2011 I visited Turkey for the first time. Every student of the classics should go! In Turkey, you can see the very places where the western influence of Rome and Greece met with the Eastern traditions of the ancient Persian empires. Turkish people are hospitable, and many ancient social customs still exist there today. Q: What convinced you to make classics an important part of your life? A: I did not become a classics major until my junior year of college. I was failing statistics for psychology majors and the professor pulled me aside and suggested that psychology was not for me. He told me to major in what I loved. I was also taking classical mythology and ancient art history that term. From that moment, I pursued classics. Thanks, Dr. Fishbein!

scholars, authors, and musicians were among visitors on campus during the fall semester. Randall Norris, historian and author, spoke about his book, Highway 61—Heart of the Delta, during a Friday Forum in September. Norris, along with JeanPhilippe Cypres, photographer and blues harmonica player, documented the stories of farmers, preachers, lawyers, doctors, artists, social activists, and teachers along Highway 61. The NYCity Slickers, an eight-piece, high energy, progressive bluegrass band that features Annie Chadwick, 1972, and Faser Hardin, 1972, and their daughter, Abigail Hardin, took center stage at the Arts & Lecture Series in October. Founded in 2008, the group combines the wailing tight harmonies and talents of three singers with the hard driving sound of five musicians on banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass, and accordion.

Katherine Dunbabin

Dinner for the ancient Romans was the central function of social life, and a formal dinner party was governed by numerous rules. Katherine Dunbabin, professor emerita of classics at McMaster University, gave the Norton Lecture in October and spoke about the various customs of ancient dining and how they illustrate the attitudes and ideology of their creators and viewers. Tracy Hamilton, associate professor of chemistry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, discussed “Zymurgy: The Chemistry of Brewing” in October. His presentation began with a brief history of brewing, followed by a step-by-step description of how to brew beer. He spoke about the chemical processes that occur during brewing and topics such as kinetics, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. David Sedaris, Grammy-nominated American humorist, comedian, bestselling author and National Public Radio commentator, entertained a packed house in the Ford Academic Complex Recital Hall in October. Susan Haltom and Jane Roy Brown, co-authors of One Writer’s Garden: Eudora Welty’s Home Place, and Langdon Clay, who photographed the garden for the book, shared their knowledge during a November Arts & Lecture Series program. They probed the Progressive Era influences and the Great Depression effects on the garden Eudora's mother, Chestina Welty, designed in 1925. Former Mississippi Gov. William Winter and his role in passing the Mississippi Education Reform Act of 1982 were celebrated during a Friday Forum in November. The act mandated statewide public kindergarten and compulsory school attendance, raised standards for teacher and student performance, and created a lay state board of education. The forum included a panel discussion with Dick Molpus, John Henegan, David Crews, and Andy Mullins, who were among the “Boys of Spring” on Winter’s staff, and Charles Overby, who led The ClarionLedger’s coverage of the need for education reform and earned a Pulitzer Prize. 4 4 www.millsaps.edu www.millsaps.edu

Syllabus: ‘Creating Music at the

Sinauer Associates, Inc.

Computer’ teaches problem solving, creativity in composition.

Dr. Tim Coker believes anyone can learn to compose music, and he proves it in his entry level class, Music 1002: Creating Music at the Computer. “The study of music has greatly evolved with computers and synthesizers, things rock band and pop musicians use. There’s a whole universe available to musicians now. It’s possible for anyone to be a composer,” he said. The class is required for students earning a major or minor in music or a music performance concentration, but it’s open to anyone who’d like to educate their inner Brahms, Beethoven, or Bach. “Most of the students who take it have been garage band musicians or took band in high school. I did have one student who didn’t have a lot of knowledge about music. He wanted to learn more, and he did,” Coker said. Students meet once a week for a lecture about music theory and twice a week in a computer lab. The software Finale enables them to create, edit, listen to their compositions played by the musical instrument or medley of instruments of their choice, and print their compositions. Finale allows students to determine the dynamics of how a composition should sound, such as if a particular note should be played as a long note or short note or accented more than others. “Finale is the industry standard, and that’s what we are using,” Coker said. By the second week of class, students have composed a flute solo, using eight musical snippets that Coker provides. A student in the class during the fall semester knew how to play the flute and would often perform pieces the students had written, he said. “Writing music is problem solving,” Coker said. “I give my students problems to solve and ask them to be creative. They impress me with what they’re able to do.” Their final project calls for students to write a song with lyrics and use the computer program to perform it.

Professor Dr. Timothy Coker is a professor of music at Millsaps College. He has a bachelor of music in piano, a master of music in conducting and a doctorate in choral music from the University of Southern Mississippi. He is director of the Millsaps Singers and the Millsaps Chamber Singers, which capitalizes on his devotion and love for the a cappella choral tradition and has allowed him to nurture his interest in accompanied choral literature. He volunteers his expertise to provide lectures before concerts in the Bravo Series of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra. He conducts the adult choir at Northminster Baptist Church in Jackson. He and his wife, Dr. Cheryl Coker, chair of the Department of Music, have three children, all of whom are Millsaps graduates.

located near present-day St. Louis. Chemists at Millsaps College’s W.M. Keck Center for Instrumental and Biochemical Comparative Archaeology designed and developed the methods to identify the chemical compounds found in residue from porous, unglazed mug-shaped ceramic containers excavated from sites in Missouri and Illinois. Ward and Gu led the development of the chemical methods and oversaw the chemical analysis and data generation. The chemists differentiated between the presences of several substances to identify a chemical signature, or bio-marker, for the holly species Ilex. The work was funded in part by the W.M. Keck Foundation. A remarkable aspect of the research project is that undergraduate students from Millsaps conducted the chemical analysis, working under the direction of Ward and Gu. “At Millsaps, students in the sciences learn to operate sophisticated instruments and participate in research normally reserved for graduate students in the latter years of graduate study,” Ward said. “Such notable experiences build the resumes of Millsaps graduates in ways that make our students sought after by graduate research programs and medical schools. Interestingly, the most often asked question of our students at the various national and international meetings where we present is always, ‘Did you really do that work yourself?’” Millsaps students, Syed Ali of Madison; Marlaina Berch of Sturgis; and Erin Redman of Carrboro, N. C., are acknowledged in the published article of the findings, “Ritual Black Drink consumption at Cahokia.” Since conducting the research, Berch and Redman graduated from Millsaps with bachelor’s degrees in chemistry. Berch is a medical student in the Rural Physicians Program at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, and Redman is studying analytical chemistry at the graduate level at the University of North Carolina. Ali, a biochemistry major, is a junior at Millsaps College. “One thing impressive and interesting about the Keck Center at Millsaps is that it is staffed with a diverse group of undergraduates with unique backgrounds,” Gu said. “We have students born in America, Vietnam, and Pakistan as well as international students that have come from China and Rwanda. Students not only work together in the lab, but they build friendships and learn from each other’s unique perspectives, exchanging their favorite music, sto-

ries from their native country, ideologies, and their dreams. “The Keck Lab is a small reflection of Millsaps culture, a culture that will prepare students for a world full of diversity, a world in which the great things can only be achieved by working with people from different backgrounds and perspectives.” Sociologists and chemists cited equally as authors in the study are Gu; Ward; University of New Mexico Distinguished Professor of Anthropology Patricia Crown, working with Thomas E.

Creative Endeavors: Student finds voice through her newspaper internship. BY: VICTORIA SHERWOOD, MILLSAPS JUNIOR

hen students arrive at Millsaps College, they are told about the abundance of opportunities available to them. I never doubted that Millsaps and its professors and staff would assist students like me, whether making plans to study abroad or to secure an internship. I met Donna Ladd, editor of the Jackson Free Press, when she spoke to my journalism class. As Ladd talked to our class about interviewing and writing, it was clear her enthusiasm for journalism was infectious. After leaving the class, I knew immediately that I wanted an internship. Two weeks later, I was in! I’m a communication studies major, and internships are part of the required curriculum. From my first day at the Jackson Free Press, I was thrown into being a responsible, serious journalist. They weren’t kidding when they said interns wouldn’t be getting people coffee. After writing a story early in the summer about the Mississippi Championship Hot Air Balloon Fest in Canton, just north of Jackson, I was allowed a sky-high ride as a member of the news media. Getting over my fear of heights for a once-in-alifetime experience was well worth the rewards, as were the obstacles I had to overcome while writing for the Free Press.

Being an intern is a lot like conquering that fear. First come the nerves, my eyes tightly closed with no idea what is going to happen next. My first interview was downtown in an office lobby. I was stressed about parking and what questions I should ask, and I was so nervous I showed up 30 minutes early. After several deep breaths and some instruction, I began to open my eyes and enjoy what was happening around me. By the middle of the summer, our intern workshops were in full swing, with several special guests in attendance, including Claudia Dreifus, a writer for Science Times of The New York Times. Speaking to veteran writers such as Dreifus helped me realize not all frustrated interns are forever lost and, with time and practice, good writing can come. Finally, after putting in hours of hard work, learning, absorbing, and practicing, I began to reap some rewards. At the end of the summer, I was asked to write the editorial for the annual Jackpedia Issue, which features information about Jackson that newcomers find helpful. The task was daunting. Like being several hundred feet off the ground and seeing extraordinary sights, finishing the summer by writing an editorial was worth every minute.

The Deans Recommend... Looking for a good book to

Dr. George Bey, associate dean for international education Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow (Tor Books, 2003) Given my well-known fascination with both Disney and science fiction, it is not surprising I enjoyed this early novel by futurist Doctorow. Set in an America where Walt Disney World has become a cultural museum, the really interesting part of the novel is the economics. In post-capitalist society, wealth is measured by your social value, which is determined by the social network’s evaluation of who you are and what you contribute to society. Dr. Kimberly Gladden Burke, dean of the Else School of Management Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris (Little, Brown & Company, 2007) This novel is a simultaneously laugh-outloud funny and poignant portrayal of a group of advertising employees caught in a downsizing recession. As the employees’ lives at work come to an end, the novel acknowledges their attempts to deal with some of the drudgery and uncertainty while capturing the warmth and joy of other interoffice interactions. Ferris captures beautifully the idea that we are “we” at work, a flawed, dysfunctional, sometimes maddening collective – a family, if you will.

Dr. Brit Katz, vice president of student life and dean of students The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace by Gary Chapman and Paul White (Moody Publishers, 2011)

This book makes a compelling case for dismantling barriers between disciplines. Although historians have been reluctant to write about the long stretches of time before the invention of writing, this multidisciplinary team argues for a new scale for understanding, bringing science into history, and integrating deep and recorded human pasts. Using the latest evidence about human genes, brains, and material culture, the reader is invited to explore the dynamic of connectedness.

This book reminds managers and leaders of the invaluable impact of communicating praise. Because my own colleagues remind me that leaders must individualize the expressions of gratitude, appreciation, and loyalty when teammates perform and act well, I rely on this slim volume to shape my reactions.

Dr. S. Keith Dunn, senior vice president of academic affairs and dean of the College Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou (Random House, 2008) and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou (Random House, 1969) I’ve found these books to be enlightening, disturbing, inspirational, and sobering, all at the same time. Both books are autobiographical and provide candid, vivid accounts of Maya Angelou’s amazing journey and development, detailing the circumstances and the individuals that played pivotal roles in her story.

This book is fast-paced and although the plot’s ‘locked room mystery’ dilemma is intriguing, it is the vibrancy of the characters that keeps the novel in the reader’s mind. With prevalent themes concerning violence, some sexual, and torture, this book will not appeal to everyone. It is for mature audiences.

Fall 2012 Else Forum: Under Armour executive describes the company’s founding and its early years. BY NELL LUTER FLOYD

Steve Battista discusses marketing efforts of Under Armour.

S

teve Battista, senior vice president of creative for Baltimore-based Under Armour, told the story of the company’s founding and brand development during the Else School of Management Fall Forum in October at Millsaps College. The company is known for its performance apparel gear engineered to keep athletes cool, dry, and light throughout the course of a game, practice, or workout and offers a diverse product assortment for men, women, and youth. Former University of Maryland football player Kevin Plank founded the sportswear giant in 1996 after he saw the need for a T-shirt that would provide compression and wick perspiration from an athlete’s skin rather than absorb it. The entrepreneur invested in the venture money that he earned as a college student by selling roses, Battista said. Plank bought a variety of the light-weight fabrics and hired a New York City jobber to sew the shirts. He then asked 12 football players he knew to try his shirts. The players liked them and asked for more. “That was the start of building a brand,” Battista said.

In the late 1990s, Plank outfitted the stars and extras of the film, “Any Given Sunday” with the apparel. He realized the exposure on the big screen during the movie, which was about a fictional pro football franchise and starred Jamie Foxx and Al Pacino, would help the company grow. But he recognized a problem. “Unless they knew what it was beforehand, people were going to think that our logo was a movie prop,” Battista said. Plank wanted Under Armour to place an advertisement in an upcoming issue of the fledgling venture, ESPN The Magazine. Only problem was, Under Armour lacked the money to pay for the ad. All 15 Under Armour employees agreed to give up two paychecks so the company could afford to pay for the $30,000 advertisement, Battista said. The ad appeared in the magazine, “Any Given Sunday” scored big at the box office, and Under Armour became better known. In 2003, the company made its first attitude-packed ad, “We Must Protect This House.” It employs 5,000 worldwide and reported sales of $1.5 billion in 2011.

ELSEWorks connects future entrepreneurs to resources needed for business success Millsaps students gain competitive edge through project collaboration with Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. BY NELL LUTER FLOYD

Dr. Penelope J. Prenshaw, professor of marketing at Millsaps College, offers advice about a team project to Breanna Jim of Pearl River, Nicklaus Shumake of Red Water, and Jonica Thomas of Conehatta, participants in the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians Youth Entrepreneurial Summer Camp at Millsaps.

hen the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians wanted to encourage entrepreneurial development among its 10,000 members, the tribe sought expertise from the Else School of Management. The Else School’s entrepreneurial initiative known as ELSEWorks saw the interaction with the tribe as an opportunity for students to gain a competitive edge by working on collaborative projects with the tribe, a way to support social entrepreneurship in the region, and an occasion to train future business leaders. That bore fruit in June, when 12 high school members of the tribe learned about basic business skills when they got a good first impression of finance and marketing as part of an entrepreneurial camp offered by the Else School. “Our goals were to introduce the tribe’s high school students to careers in business and finance and help them understand how a career in these fields can benefit their lives as well as that of their community,” said Dr. Jesse Beeler, Millsaps College professor of accounting who holds the Hyman F. McCarty Jr. Chair. “We hoped to inspire these students to pursue a career in business or finance and increase the number of business leaders in the tribal community.” The camp included a week of classes taught at the tribe’s

Leah Alex, a senior at Choctaw Central High School who would like to become a lawyer, said the camp was a great experience. “I’ve learned a lot and had a lot of fun. The business law class showed me how challenging the career I’d like to pursue can be,” she said. The final two weeks of the camp provided a mentorship experience in which each student was assigned to an executive who runs a tribal business. Each student worked for and observed daily the executive he or she was assigned to shadow. The camp was molded after the Else School’s international business program.“We think that model can transfer to these students. We want them to visualize themselves as future tribal leaders,” Beeler said. The camp was a first for Millsaps and the tribe. Reaching a historically underserved population played a part in the decision to organize the camp, Beeler said. “This is part of our tradition as a college affiliated with the Methodist Church,” he said.

Millsaps’ Galaty honored with research grant He will lead students in the study of social inequalities, urban societies.

r. Michael Galaty, professor of anthropology at Millsaps College and an academic trustee of the Archaeological Institute of America, is the recipient of a senior research grant from the National Science Foundation for the College’s ongoing archaeological project in Shkodër, Albania. The grant provides support for Millsaps undergraduate students to conduct fieldwork under the direction of faculty members, including Drs. James Harris and Stanley Galicki, professors of geology. The grant is in collaboration with Dr. Lorenc Bejko, professor of archaeology at the University of Tirana, Albania. Millsaps and the Albanian university have a longstanding relationship, including a tuition waiver agreement dating to 2010. The grant awards Galaty and his colleagues more than $162,000 to support the Projekti Arkeologjikë i Shkodrës (PASH), which aims to advance scientific understanding of the origins of social inequality and urban societies. The project will also use the unique resources of Millsaps’ W.M. Keck Center for Instrumental and Biochemical Comparative Archaeology, directed by Dr. Timothy Ward, professor of chemistry and associate dean of sciences. During the coming year, Millsaps students will analyze clay, prehistoric pottery, and human teeth, looking for evidence of trade and migration. At the local level, Galaty seeks to understand the causes and expressions of proto-urbanism in the Shkodër region. “I want to understand where social inequality comes from, both in Albania and generally,” Galaty said. “Why do humans

the world over build cities, which requires systems of social hierarchy? This was a major transformation in human behavior and can only be studied through the careful application of archaeological methods.” Dr. S. Keith Dunn, senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College, said the project is an example of the kind of highly collaborative, interdisciplinary work that makes the Millsaps experience special. “Our students and professors are actively involved in acquiring new knowledge and understanding, not just learning about different academic disciplines in the classroom,” he said. “They’re changing the ways scholars think about these ancient cultures, and our students are involved in every aspect of the project—from digging and collecting artifacts, to analyzing samples in the laboratory, to providing the theoretical framework to understanding the workings of the society.” Galaty, Galicki, and Harris, and seven current and former Millsaps students took part in the 2012 expedition to northern Albania. Joined by Bejko and seven University of Tirana students, they continued surveying the plain and hills near the northern Albanian city of Shkodër, which sits alongside Lake Shkodra, the largest freshwater lake in the Balkans. In three seasons of fieldwork, they have documented the existence of hundreds of prehistoric burial mounds and numerous hill forts. Thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation, Galaty and PASH will operate for two more seasons, during which they will excavate tombs and a fort.

Scholarship program makes education possible for Maya youth College’s students and faculty guide local residents to a better future. BY NELL LINTON KNOX, B.A. 2010

T

he study of ancient Maya culture is a well-recognized aspect of Millsaps College’s Kaxil Kiuic: A Biocultural Reserve in the Mexican state of Yucatán, but behind the scenes, lesser-known visionary initiatives are supporting today’s Maya. “We are working with locals on environmental issues such as poaching, deforestation, and fair trade,” said Dr. George Bey, professor of anthropology and associate dean of international education at Millsaps. “We are also providing a high school education to local children from these small jungle towns through the Millsaps Scholarship Program for Rural Youth.” Bey, an archaeologist who conducts research in the abandoned city of Kiuic in the foothills of Yucatán, developed the scholarship program that began in the summer of 2007 and oversees it. Funded by a grant from former Millsaps trustee Luther Ott, B.A. 1971, and his wife, Janet, 1970, as well as other members of the Millsaps community, the scholarship program provides a fully funded high school education at COBAY high school in Akil and in the city of Oxkutzcab for up to six local youths in Yucatán. It also supports one intern each year. Two students graduated in spring 2012 and three students are in the program this year. The intern, a Millsaps College graduate, lives in the community and provides support for scholarship recipients. Bey hopes to see the number of students receiving scholarships increase during the next two years. Since the program began, seven of nine students have graduated. Of those seven, four have secured jobs outside of their local village and three have gone on to attend regional institutions of higher learning, such as technical college. “The scholarship program in Yaxachen, Yucatán is reminiscent of the One Campus One Community initiative in Jackson,” Bey said. “The interns in Yucatán are creating leaders and proponents for education.” Current intern Phillip Boyett, B.A. 2012, and Brittany Tourelle, B.A. 2011, the intern before Boyett, agree that the scholarship program reflects intrinsic values of the College. “The goal of the program is to give back to the community that has given us so much,” Boyett said. “Dr. Bey and all of us who work at Kiuic feel an ethical obligation to not only faith-

fully reconstruct the past of these people, but also to actively participate in their present and future. “I think archaeology is a fascinating part of anthropology, and it’s such a surreal experience to uncover buildings and artifacts that haven't been seen for over a thousand years. But, to be honest, I prefer studying and working with the living residents of Yucatán as a cultural anthropologist.” Boyett participates in the selection of scholarship recipients and scholarship payment distribution. He also maintains a close relationship with the scholarship students. “Twice a week, I go to the school to see how they are doing, sit in on classes, and talk to their teachers,” he says. “My

We are also providing a high school education to local children from these small jungle towns through the Millsaps Scholarship Program for Rural Youth.” — Dr. George Bey main goal is to ensure academic excellence in the students, so I find myself saying things my mother usually said to me in middle school: ‘What did you learn today? Do you have any homework?’ Also, I visit their families twice a month to talk to them and see how they are doing. A good portion of this job is public relations: visiting the school, visiting the town, and making friends.” Tourelle said working with the families of scholarship recipients keeps the students on track to graduate. “In Yucatán, I would bring in job applications from local businesses to parents so they could see exactly what credentials their children would need in order to gain economic independence in their home country,” she said. “Very little overwhelms the resilient community of Yaxachen, and throughout my 14 months spent there and in Oxkutzcab, there was not much that caused people to rush to do anything.” There is, however, a rush to educate rural youth, Tourelle said. “The scholarship program is making impressive advances toward its goal to raise a community out of poverty, when you consider the scale of the program…I believe that im-

provement comes from reflection. We also have George Bey, Luther and Janet Ott, the team on the ground in Yucatán, and the Millsaps Board of Trustees on our side, helping our little program reach very, very big goals.” Tourelle, who now works with Teach for America in New Orleans, said working as an intern prepared her for her current job. “My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, so many of the issues my current students face are in the same vein as those that the scholarship kids deal with,” she said. “The most striking similarity between students from the United States and Yucatán is that they and their families either do not see a purpose for education, or have lowered their value of education in some way, for whatever reason. In Mexico, this took the form of our scholarship students missing weeks of instruction in school during harvest season, and migrating to the U.S to find work after they’ve dropped out of school. “In the U.S, my students will miss school to babysit younger siblings or to get their hair done, or to spend the day in the hospital to treat minor illnesses. I have found that much of my job focused on emphasizing the real life applicability of education.” For Boyett, his work as an intern is preparation for a career that focuses on Yucatán studies.

“I’m using this year to apply to graduate programs in anthropology and strengthen my résumé,” he says. “With any luck, I'll go to school around San Francisco so I can work with Yucatecáns living and working in the Bay Area. Pretty much everyone in Oxkutzcab, where I live, has a family member living in the Bay Area, and those family members commonly live there for 10 years or more. I would very much like to work on a dissertation involving a double-sided study of Yucatecán immigrants and their sending communities.” Boyett hopes to continue lifelong travels to Yucatán. “For me, that would be a dream come true,” he says. Boyett is currently writing a comprehensive instruction manual for the job so that the next intern will be comfortable with the work. He is also working on a T-shirt design for the program to sell in the Millsaps bookstore and researching previous scholarship students for a ‘Where Are They Now?’ pamphlet. “Each year, we will have a new Millsaps graduate intern, and he or she will be able to develop some of their own goals and projects. I find that really exciting, because at the hands of talented, driven Millsaps students, who knows where the program will be in five years?”

Millsaps students visit landmarks, museums in Paris Up-close exposure to Parisian arts allows students to hone their writing skills. BY PATTI P. WADE

W

hen Millsaps students absorbed the wonders of Paris showcased through France’s museums and monuments, they didn’t depend on textbooks or the Internet to convey the impact of such beautiful works of art. They grasped it firsthand when they traveled overseas with the study abroad course, Poetry, Painting and Paris, taught by Dr. Greg Miller, professor of English, in the summer of 2012. The course gave Millsaps students the opportunity to focus on writing about and studying the art of Paris. In France, students toured museums such as the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Petit Palais, the Marmottan, the Musée Rodin, L’Orangerie, the National Museum of the Middle Ages at Cluny, and the Pompidou Center. They saw the stunning churches of la Sainte-Chappelle, Notre Dame, Sacré Coeur, Saint-Eustache, and Saint Denis, and took excursions by train to Chartres and Versailles. Students taking the course were Miranda Tucker, Emma Spies, Kara Sowell, Eric Bennett, and Sarah Wade, representing majors in art, communication studies, English, and music. Students wrote essays about art and poetry, and as expected with international travel, they reflected about differences between French and American customs, whether it was avoiding eye contact on the subway, maintaining a quiet demeanor in public, or placing orders properly in restaurants. A treat for Miller and his class was a visit from Millsaps Fulbright scholar Joe Muller, currently studying in Poland. He met the group for a tour of the Musée de Cluny and lunch in the Latin Quarter. Photos by Millsaps Senior Miranda Tucker, Dr. Greg Miller, Marc Rolph, and Patti P.

In Eric Griffin’s class, romance is so much more than European history Millsaps’ English Department chair encourages students to be creative when making literary romance come alive. BY NELL LUTER FLOYD

ne of Dr. Eric Griffin’s favorite classes to teach is the Romance—and his students might say it’s quite entertaining. “What makes this course so much fun is that we also look at modern film versions of the romance—think ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’— and, we write our own Romances in imitation of the writers we’ve read,” said Griffin, chair of the Millsaps English Department. The Romance follows the birth of the genre from the vernacular epics of the Middle Ages through Arthurian romances to the literary romances of great Renaissance writers such as Ariosto in Italy, Spenser and Shakespeare in England, and

O 26

Cervantes in Spain. “The students come up with amazing Romance projects. Along with writing poems, short stories or plays, I’ve had students write musicals or song cycles, paint and sculpt, make films, and once, a student who had been involved with Ballet Mississippi even choreographed and performed a ballet for her final project. “So while it is in some ways a traditional literary history class, it is also a group exercise in the creative process. If I can help students to unlock their own creative sensibilities, that's when I’m really teaching.” It is fitting that Griffin, who encourages his students to fully embrace the humanities, is the 2012 Humanities Teacher

of the Year at Millsaps. He gave a lecture entitled, “‘Ye strangers that doe inhabite in this land’: Shakespeare and Immigration,” in November. A graduate of Pomona College, Griffin earned his master’s and doctorate in English Renaissance literature and culture from the University of Iowa before joining the Millsaps faculty in 1998. “Since that time, Eric has established a reputation on campus as a challenging and engaging teacher in both literary and cultural studies courses,” said Dr. S. Keith Dunn, senior vice president and dean of academic affairs at Millsaps College. “He has been a tireless advocate for the Latin American Studies program, coordinating and teaching in the semester-abroad program in Yucatán.” Griffin’s scholarship focuses on how the political and religious rivalry with Spain shaped the national identity of Renaissance England. “This was beautifully captured in his 2009 book, English Renaissance Drama and the Specter of Spain: Ethno-poetics and Empire, a work that garnered him national recognition and an invitation to participate in the

prestigious Folger Institute Research Symposium at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. and conferences in Spain and Canada,” Dunn said. Griffin became interested in Anglo-Hispanic literary and cultural relations while growing up in California. “Out there, I had studied Spanish from about fourth grade on. And then my initial major in college was Latin American history, with a particular emphasis on Mexico. After studying in Mexico, life intervened, and I stopped taking classes for a few years,” he said. “When I returned to college at Pomona, I discovered Shakespeare and also creative writing, which were my majors there. But I kept taking classes in Spanish literature and culture, mainly because I loved doing it. “When I finally got to graduate school, I discovered that Shakespeare and the Spanish writers of the Golden Age had an incredible amount in common, but that because separate national literary traditions had grown up around them, they were seldom examined comparatively. I wanted to investigate how and why this happened.”

Millsaps was selected from a nationwide pool of 187 schools as one of 47 colleges to receive an award based on the strength of its record in science education and the proposed initiative. This grant builds on the College’s stellar community of teacher-

scholars, state-of-the-art laboratories, and research oriented approach to the teaching of science. Dr. S. Keith Dunn, senior vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College said, “The Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant will help Millsaps expand its longstanding leadership role in educating future physicians and healthcare providers. Our enhanced curriculum will allow us to play a central role in addressing Mississippi’s critical need

for more and better trained physicians. The HHMI grant will also increase science literacy for all Millsaps students.” According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Mississippi’s physician population percentage is among the lowest in the nation. Mississippi has 18.2 physicians per 10,000 people compared to a national rate of 27.7 physicians per 10,000 people. Dr. Timothy J.

model program and its outcomes to other institutions. An advisory board including faculty and administrators from the University of Mississippi Medical Center has been created to further support the enhancement of Millsaps’ premedical education program. The UMMC Advisory Board will assist the College in developing the curriculum and assessing the program. Dr. Steven T. Case, associate dean for medical school admissions at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, said, “This unique partnership with Millsaps will provide a seamless pipeline for professional training of students studying to be physicians and other healthcare professionals.” Partnerships with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and UMMC support the College’s new strategic plan, “Across the Street and Around Globe: Partnerships and Influence at Millsaps College.” One of the key pieces of the strategic plan is a new and distinctive educational and leadership program that leverages Millsaps’ location in the capital city of Mississippi and in the communities it touches around the world. Dunn explained, “The program is designed to expand the reach of our classrooms—embracing opportunities in our neighborhood to ensure that students graduate with real-world skills and experiences that will be an advantage to them in their careers and in their future contributions to their communities.” Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps, said, “At Millsaps, we not only want to attract great students, we want to change how students think in ways that will make them transformative leaders in their chosen fields and in solving complex problems of the 21st century. This highly competitive award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute is evidence that our programs and faculty are superb. It will help us expand the number of students interested in the advanced study of science, and it comes at a strategic moment in Mississippi history as plans to unite the medical, higher education, and corporate communities around promoting Jackson as a regional healthcare destination gain increased attention.”

We will be educating future physicians so they will be able to think from a number of perspectives and treat patients holistically.” In 2009, the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute released “Scientific Foundations for Future Physicians,” developed by a committee of scientists, physicians, and science educators. The report is a clarion call to undergraduate institutions to redesign premedical requirements that have remained largely unchanged for decades and do not reflect 21st century competencies that entering medical students must have mastered. Millsaps is answering that call. “In fact, we are the only college in the state to receive funding to develop and implement this new curriculum based on the latest and best practices in science education,” Ward said. The grant will also fund opportunities for Millsaps students to present research findings through the Mississippi Academy of Sciences as well as regional and national scientific organizations. These experiences will not only provide rich opportunities for students but will disseminate information about this

The College and community partners collaborate on business incubator.

illsaps College has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the Robert N. Hearin Foundation to assist in the development of a business incubator in Jackson’s Midtown neighborhood. The goal of the grant is to build on existing partnerships to grow the creative economy of the Midtown area, focusing on the following: s6ISUALANDPERFORMINGARTS s$ESIGN s&ILM VIDEO ANDMEDIA s,ITERARYANDPUBLISHING s#ULINARYARTS s-USEUMSANDHERITAGEINDUSTRIES “Midtown’s rich history and the investments being made by so many partners, businesses and residents make Midtown an ideal location to model how to grow creative assets in communities across the state,” said Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps College. He cited recent investments in housing by Habitat for Humanity, as well as future investments being discussed for the neighboring Mississippi Health Corridor. “This initiative, led by the faculty of our Else School of Management, goes straight to the heart of the College’s mission as well as its new strategic plan,” he said. “It provides experiential learning opportunities while giving students a way to actively and purposefully engage with and support our local community through mutually beneficial strategic partner-

Secondly, through the leadership of Dr. Darby Ray, former director of the Millsaps Faith & Work Initiative, and Ann Phelps, interim director of the Faith & Work Initiative, the College has been active in Midtown through the 1 Campus 1 Community initiative. “We have observed very talented and motivated partners coming together to make a difference in Midtown in various levels. We are grateful to the Hearin Foundation for providing us with the funding to take a key leadership role in this new initiative,” Pearigen said. Key collaborators with Millsaps are the Midtown Arts District, the Mississippi Arts Commission, and Midtown Partners, a non-profit created by the merger in 2010 of the North Midtown Community Development Corporation and Good Samaritan Midtown. A broader group of partners providing input and resources includes the City of Jackson, the Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Jackson Housing Authority, Habitat for Humanity, the Walker Foundation, Brown Elementary, Rowan Middle School, and Midtown residents and businesses.

After the Blackwells returned home from their visit to Millsaps, Iragena stayed in contact with them through e-mail. “I shared my idea about wanting to start a foundation,” Iragena said. “They started giving me some ideas on how this would work.” During the summer of 2011, Iragena visited the Blackwells in Connecticut, and together they began laying the groundwork to establish a foundation in the United States that could accept tax deductible donations to further the cause of literacy in Rwanda. The foundation was officially launched in October 2011, with Iragena as CEO and founder and Ken Blackwell as chairman. In addition to American and Rwandan arms of the foundation, there are now two collegiate chapters—one at Millsaps and one at Oklahoma Christian University started by Rwandan students enrolled there. While the foundation’s initial focus has been on collecting new and used books for shipping to Rwanda, the Blackwell brothers—who have enjoyed highly successful careers in engineering and technology—believe there may be a better way to provide books to the children of Rwanda. “I am an engineer, and I believe in technology,” Ken Blackwell said. In July, he made his fourth trip to Africa, this time taking along 30 Amazon Kindles, loaded with classic literature, dictionaries, Bibles, textbooks, and books for pleasure reading. The Church of the Apostles in Fairfield, Conn., where the Blackwells are members, purchased the Kindles to establish

Amazon was supportive of the pilot project, making changes to its website to allow Ken Blackwell to monitor the Kindles in Rwanda and push new content to them once he returned to the United States. “I liken it to the proliferation of cell phones in countries like Rwanda,” Ken said. “They skipped the land-line phase altogether and went straight to cell. I think school libraries will do the same and go straight to electronic readers.” For Iragena, however, it doesn’t matter whether Rwandans read on paper or on screen—as long as they read. He remains committed to that goal while inspiring others. “Jean Leon is someone who not only thinks big, but does exactly what his heart tells him to do,” said Michael Bell, a junior and officer of the Millsaps Student Body Association. Dr. David Davis, associate professor of history and associate dean of arts and letters, describes Iragena as “a great example of initiative and self-drive to improve the life of the larger community. He is a great model for our students by demonstrating that, ‘You don’t rest on your laurels. You build on them.’” Kevin Blackwell agrees. “Jean Leon is not satisfied to say ‘I’ve got mine. My future is assured. Why rock the boat?’ Instead, he wants to know what he can do to help others. In a world that might make him selfish, he's a pretty selfless guy,” Blackwell said.

Barbecue celebrates life of Millsaps alumnus, raises funds for scholarship Sparky and Cathy Welles remember their son and his love for soccer, the College, and the friends he made. BY KENTON WATT JR.

O

n a Saturday afternoon, two hours south of the Millsaps College campus, 250 of Ned Welles’ friends, family and teammates gather under a riverfront pavilion in Ponchatoula, La. to celebrate his life and to raise funds for scholarships in his memory. The annual Ned Welles BBQ remembers a Millsaps graduate and popular Majors soccer player who died in a car accident a few months after his graduation in 2004. A scholarship in Ned’s memory was established by his parents, Sparky and Cathy Welles, and his sister, Catie, to provide $10,000 per year to Millsaps students.

“While an absolute fierce competitor on the soccer field, Ned was one of the kindest young men I’ve ever worked with,” said his coach at Millsaps, Paul Van Hooydonk. “The scholarship means so much to Millsaps because of how much Millsaps meant to Ned and his family. Ned came to play soccer, but he really grew and developed as a person.” Supporters who attend the picnic every Memorial Day weekend buy tickets, but they also donate food, drinks, and auction items, with all proceeds going to the Ned Welles Memorial Scholarship Fund. A semi-annual newsletter named “The Goal Post” keeps everyone informed about the recipients and reminds all to save the date for the next barbecue.


MAJOR SPORTS

Sparky Welles presents a donation to Kenton Watt Jr. and Ben Morvant of Millsaps College during the 2012 annual barbecue that is in memory of his son, Ned Welles, a Millsaps alumnus.

“Ned had a great experience at Millsaps,” said Sparky Welles. “He enjoyed the camaraderie and the commitment of the teachers and students. It just made sense to try to help other deserving students to be able to receive a great education as well.” During his time as an undergraduate, Ned would host a tube float on the Tangipahoa River in his hometown for friends and fraternity brothers. After his death, the float continued, and the idea to feed everyone traveling in from out of town is the story of how the barbecue fundraiser began. “We prepare hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, chicken breasts, and pulled pork,” Sparky Wells said. “We anticipate that extra food will arrive (through donations), but we are never sure what it will be. It helps that a friend who is a chef at Copeland’s volunteers to cook whatever shows up.” Patrons at the last barbecue enjoyed shrimp, tuna, and amberjack, as well as traditional Louisiana favorites such as jambalaya and gumbo. Two bands donated their time as well, singing Jimmy Buffett favorites and other tunes all afternoon. Thanks to the proceeds from this event and a golf tournament sponsored by the Ponchatoula Rotary Club, the Ned Welles Memorial Scholarship has raised more than $120,000. The fund also provides a scholarship to two graduating seniors at Ponchatoula High and another at Southeastern Louisiana University. “To date, we have helped over 50 students, and many have commented that they may not have been able to attend

the school of their choice without the help,” Sparky Welles said. “Millsaps has received the majority of the money. If this money can make it possible for students to come to a great school, then our efforts are worth it.” Millsaps senior Alex Szabo, an accounting major from Bossier City, La., is the current recipient of the award. He’s grateful to the Welles family and the scholarship’s supporters. “I lost my father to cancer in the fall of my freshman year,” he said. “Knowing the story behind the award, I was truly honored when I received the Ned Welles Scholarship. It has aided me financially in a great way and inspired me to take positive action despite the tragedy that has occurred in my own life.” Alex is a member of the Majors soccer team and has intentions to enter the business world. He has interned the past four summers with the Shreveport accounting firm of Roberts, Cherry & Company. “When my time is up at Millsaps, I will remember all the hard work I put forth in both school, work, and soccer, although I think my fondest memories will include the friendships I have made the past four years with faculty, fraternity brothers, and fellow students,” Szabo said.

Stellar overall year in women’s athletics at Millsaps marks Title IX anniversary Women athletes now compete in nine sports, up from two in the mid-1970s. BY MIKE CHRISTENSEN, FREELANCE WRITER

I

n the mid-1970s, Millsaps College had two women’s athletic programs: golf and tennis. Today, it has nine, the same number it offers its male students. Women’s basketball was revived in 1978 after a 43-year hiatus. Soccer was added in the mid1980s, volleyball in 1992, softball in the early 2000s, followed by cross country, track and field, and lacrosse. And by interesting coincidence, Millsaps celebrated the 40th anniversary of Title IX with arguably its best overall year in women’s athletics. Millsaps finished sixth out of 12 teams in the President’s Trophy competition — an overall sports award — in the school’s final year in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference before moving to the Southern Athletic Association for the 2012-13 season. “It was a very good year, something we can all be proud of,” said Millsaps Athletic Director Tim Wise, B.A. 1989. The basketball team had a history-making season, winning 22 games (including a 15-game winning streak) and reaching the final of the conference tournament. The Majors were considered for an NCAA Tournament bid, a reachable goal for the 2012-13 season.

Coach Jamie Burns-Fisher’s volleyball team went 25-7 and finished with the best record in the program’s history. The team had its first appearance in a conference championship final and placed second overall. The women’s tennis team went 18-5 for its most successful season in the program’s history. “We had the most wins in the team’s history as well as the highest finish ever for a women’s tennis team in the SCAC tournament,” said Jason Box, women’s tennis coach. “The women from the 2011 team set the standard for what we are trying to build at Millsaps. They did this with an enormous amount of hard work, dedication, and team unity.” Burns-Fisher has crafted a winning program at Millsaps and, in the process, touched the lives of many young women like herself who wanted to play a competitive sport on the college level. And, it wasn’t that long ago that Fisher was in the shoes of her players: loving sports, and competing in every one offered at her Colorado school in the late 1990s. She settled on volleyball. “It was the one I loved the most,” Burns-Fisher said. “I played the others, but I couldn’t wait for volleyball season to come around.” Landing a college scholarship in volleyball became her

Burns-Fisher earned both All-State and All-Colorado (bestowed on the top six players) honors as a senior and ultimately received scholarship offers from the University of Mississippi, the University of Tulsa, and Wright State University.

States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Forty years later, the impact, direct and indirect, of this legislation on opportunities for women in athletics is hard to measure. Sports Illustrated, in a May 7, 2012, article, called the athletic gains “seismic.” “According to a report provided by the Women’s Sports Foundation, 294,015 girls competed in high schools four decades ago,” Sports Illustrated’s Kelli Anderson wrote. “By last year, the number had ballooned to 3,173,549, and it’s growing.” The impact goes beyond just those numbers, however. “Girls who compete in sports get better grades, graduate at higher rates and have more confidence,” Anderson wrote. “The vast majority avoid unplanned pregnancies, drugs, obesity, depression and suicide…(Women) have earned recognition, received scholarships, inspired celebration—even, yes, been drafted and made a living from their talent.” While the effects of Title IX have been profound at the NCAA Division I level, they can also be seen at Millsaps, a private college that as an NCAA Division III member does not offer athletic scholarships. From a practical standpoint, Millsaps wants to compete for outstanding high school students, female and male, who also desire to play intercollegiate sports. And beyond that, there’s the simple matter of fairness. “Division III itself is built upon the idea of equal opportunities for men and women in athletics,” Wise said. “In our conference (the Southern Athletic Association), there are more women’s sports than men’s (11 to 10). Providing equal access is a guiding principle of Division III, the Southern Athletic As-

sociation and Millsaps. “It’s taken a while at a lot of places,” he said, “but the numbers have caught up, which is good. We have 18, nine of each. We want to offer equal opportunity. We’d never go back.” The Majors’ fledgling lacrosse team, despite a losing record, showed so much improvement in its second season that coach Tracy Cepnio was named co-coach of the year in the conference. The women’s track and field team placed fifth at the SCAC championships and had a 3.5 GPA. “We have a much more well rounded team, which led to our success,” said Andy Till, coach of the team. “We placed fifth in the conference with 11 women on the team. This year we have 15 women. We’ve set the stage for another successful season and are still building the program.” In July, the Millsaps Majors Women’s Tennis Team was recognized as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association AllAcademic Team, while four individuals earned ITA ScholarAthlete. To earn ITA All-Academic Team honors a team must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete status a player must be a varsity letter winner, have a grade point average of at least 3.50 on a 4.00 scale for the current academic year, and have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters (including freshman through senior year). “Women can find a place here,” said women’s basketball coach Chuck Winkelman, “at a small, liberal arts college, where they can get a wonderful education and have the opportunity to participate in college athletics on a high level.”

Jim Page begins his 24th year at bat He came to Millsaps in 1981 as a student and has built a career. BY MIKE CHRISTENSEN, FREELANCE WRITER

S

omeday, Jim Page says, he’ll pull out the various trophies and awards he has accumulated over the years, kick back on the couch and reflect on his already lengthy career as the baseball coach at Millsaps College. Someday. Maybe. But not today. It’s a Thursday morning during the fall semester and there’s a practice coming up. There is another team to be molded. The 2013 season will be here soon. Page notched his 600th career win last season during his 24th year at the helm of the Majors program. With a 610-3373 record, he is among 20 active coaches in NCAA Division III with 600 or more wins and ranks 36th all-time among D-III coaches. Page is aware of the milestones but doesn’t really think about them. “I’m a little bit scared to do that,” he said. Page has garnered six Coach of the Year awards while leading his team to eight conference championships. He has guided six teams to NCAA regionals, and his 2009 club achieved the No. 1 national ranking in D-III at one point in the season. But reflection will have to wait. “I want to have fun and

focus on today,” Page said. He wants his focus and energy to go elsewhere. “I’ve got a wonderful family (wife and four kids) and wonderful relationships with my (assistant) coaches and players,” he said. “It’s fun doing this together. I don’t do this for notches on a belt buckle. It’s a lot of fun for me.” Page arrived at Millsaps in 1981 from Woodbridge, Va. He was a good high school player but suffered a setback (shattered cheekbone) during his senior year. Interest from Division I Old Dominion University waned, and a Virginia junior college coach who was looking at Page got fired. Page turned to his high school coach, Jerry Williams, for advice. Williams had recently sent three players to Millsaps and arranged a visit for Page and his good friends and fellow players Nick Anderson and Roger Dankel. “Nick and I live a mile apart, married Mississippi girls, and never left,” Page said. Page played four years for Millsaps Hall of Famer Tommy Ranager and was team MVP two of those seasons. He batted .487 his senior year and even got a look from pro scouts. Page was preparing to take a high school coaching job elsewhere in the state when he was offered an assistant position

with the Majors. “I just thought there was nothing better than working at Millsaps,” he said. “I fell in love and I’m still here.” Some opportunities to move to a bigger stage have come up here and there, Page said, but he has resisted. “It’s hard to leave this place,” he said. Millsaps athletic director Tim Wise is thrilled that Page feels this way. “He has had a consistent, sustained success that is really hard to do,” Wise said. “He’s not even 50 yet. We think he could coach another 15 years or so if he wants to. I think he’s destined for the Mississippi Hall of Fame. He’s had that kind of career.” Page, who’ll turn 50 on Feb. 8 (opening day of the 2013 season), became the Majors’ head coach in 1989 and quickly put his stamp on the program. Millsaps won five straight conference championships from 1990-94 and received its first NCAA Tournament bid in 1995. Page says he owes a lot of his success to what he learned from his high school and college coaches. “Coach Williams was an innovator, a guy before his time,” Page said. “I couldn’t have been more fortunate to have a coach like him. I was so blessed. And Coach Ranager…I got a lot of my tough mentality from him. I hope some of both of those guys rubbed off on me.” Any coach will tell you he wins with players, and Page is no different. Finding ones who fit at Millsaps, where both the academic and athletic standards are high, is a challenge — but it’s one Page and his assistant coaches seem to have met in recruiting year after year. “You’re always looking for guys with (baseball) tools,” Page said. “The guys with five tools get drafted (by major 48

league clubs), and the guys with one or two really good ones go to Division I or Division II schools. “We look for guys who project, guys who maybe we can refine their tools. And we also look at how hard they play the game. Heart is hard to measure, but it has everything to do with how good a player can be. When you see it, you know it. You look for little things that show signs of it.” A fine example is Cody McCain, who is Page's assistant coach. "He was four-year stand-out player for me. I'm lucky to have the best assistant coach in the world," Page said. Every new season brings a need for adjustments. Page looks at his current squad and sees one that doesn’t have the power or speed in the outfield that the 2012 club possessed. “Every team develops its own character,” Page said. “We’ve always been fortunate to have guys who played hard and didn’t take anything for granted. We just try to help them along. “We want to play the game right, never take a play off. That’s a key element in overcoming any shortcomings in power or speed or whatever. You gotta play the game the right way. They say it’s not the best team that wins, it’s the team that plays the best. “Doing little things will be critical for (the 2013) team. We’ve had some remarkable players and some remarkable teams. Our 2006 team was a very talented team that went to a regional. The 2009 team wasn’t as talented, but they got to No. 1 in the country and went to a regional, too. Both of those teams played the game the right way.” To Page, seeing that likely means a lot more than all the awards and trophies that have piled up over the years. Those will come to mean something, too. Someday. Just not today.

McAlilly becomes United Methodist Bishop continuing a long Millsaps legacy The election acknowledges his gift for ministry. BY NELL LUTER FLOYD

H

ours after the Rev.William McAlilly, B.A. 1978, was elected a bishop of the United Methodist Church, a group of Millsaps College alumni and some alumni spouses joined in a special serenade. To the tune of the Millsaps Alma Mater, they sang lyrics updated by Dr. R. Mark Matheny, B.A. 1968, senior minister at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Memphis: Bishops borne of dear old Millsaps Welcome Number Ten! McAlilly is his name and He knows where he’s been. Predecessors - they are many, And they hail Bill’s rise, We shall join them in these moments, Praise him to the skies! Murrah, Harmon, Finger, Clark, McDavid and Clay Lee, Swenson, Goodpaster and Whitaker, Now, there's McAlilly! We all join in singing proudly, But we're humble, too, For we travel in God’s Grace with Spirit work to do... McAlilly, who served as district superintendent of the Seashore District of the Mississippi Conference, was chosen bishop in July during the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference at Lake Junaluska, N.C. He was a key leader in the rebuilding of churches and homes on the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina and is the ninth Millsaps graduate to be elected a bishop in the United Methodist Church. He joins the list that includes Larry M. Goodpaster, B.A. 1970, bishop of the Charlotte (N.C.) Episcopal Area; Mary Ann McDonald Swenson, B.A. 1969, bishop of the California-Pacific Annual Conference; Timothy W. Whitaker, B.A. 1970, bishop of the Florida Episcopal Area; Clay F. Lee, B.A. 1951, retired; the late Homer Ellis Finger; B.A. 1937; Roy C. Clark, B.A. 1941, retired; the late Nolan B. Harmon, B.A. 1914; and the late Joel D. McDavid, B.A. 1941. William Belton Murrah was certainly “borne of dear

ole Millsaps,” but he was not a Millsaps graduate. He was founder and first president of the College. A second-generation United Methodist clergy member, McAlilly said his election was a confirmation of his gift for ministry. “It was an exciting moment to be chosen and recognized as someone who could lead the church,” he said. McAlilly has served as a pastor at small and large churches, led mission trips to foreign countries, worked with teens, mentored clergy, and developed new congregations. McAlilly said he had no idea when he was a student at Millsaps that his life’s journey would include being named a bishop, but the College provided a sense of the world and prepared him to speak the words of redemption, hope and reconciliation. T.W. Lewis, professor of religion from 1964-1996 at Millsaps, said he’s watched McAlilly’s gifts and graces emerge and mature from his days as a student through the successive stages of his ministry. “I am especially appreciative of his theological grasp of the Wesleyan tradition which has been characterized as the ‘Methodist Middle,’” Lewis says of McAlilly. The Rev. Lisa Garvin, B.A. 1993, associate dean of the Chapel and Religious Life at Emory University, characterizes McAlilly as “first and foremost a pastor, who nurtures his own soul while encouraging and challenging others toward a deeper spiritual life and fruitful ministry. As a bishop, he will bring faith, intellect, and vision to lead the Church into the future.” During his Millsaps days, McAlilly played football and was among Kappa Sigma fraternity’s three religion majors who formed a Bible study. “We called ourselves the God Squad,” he said. McAlilly received the Pendergrass Medal for Preaching while at Millsaps. “I was the person who showed promise,” he said. “It had nothing to do with preaching. Nobody ever preached a sermon as an undergraduate.” McAlilly is assigned to the Nashville Area, which includes middle and western Tennessee, and Kentucky. McAlilly’s father, Dr. Roy McAlilly, attended Millsaps in 1952; his brother, Stephen McAlilly, earned a B.S. in 1977, and his sister, Deborah McAlilly Brangenberg, earned a B.A. in 1973.

Liberal arts, law, and divinity have Millsaps link in common The journey of an alumnus takes him full circle to his alma mater. BY KENNETH TOWNSEND

oon after arriving at Millsaps in fall 2000, I found myself wanting to major in everything. The more classes I took, the more difficult my choice became. I saw the value of theoretical and practical approaches to problems, the importance of both qualitative and quantitative analyses; I immersed myself in the city of Jackson, while I learned about the world beyond America’s borders. I reveled in the humanism I was learning, even as I continued to appreciate the College’s, and my own, religious heritage. While practical constraints dictated that I officially select a major (or two, in my case!), Millsaps showed me that a liberal arts education could not be contained in a single major or discipline. My liberal arts education, I also realized, entailed resisting the impulse to accept appearances unquestioningly. Regardless of the majors we select, or the professions we pursue, as Millsaps graduates, we learn that there is always more than one way to approach a problem, always more than one interpretation to a text. Perhaps more than anything else, though, we learn that ideas are related, problems connected. Upon graduating from Millsaps, I moved to Oxford, England as a Rhodes Scholar and completed a master’s in political theory. Even though Oxford’s political theory program was among the best in the world, I honestly found myself missing the interdisciplinary way that I had learned to approach ideas while at Millsaps. I chafed at the notion that practical experience should be excluded, and that history should be bracketed, from philosophical accounts of justice. A few years ago, my interdisciplinary instincts led me to enroll in a joint law and divinity degree program at Yale University. Looking back now, the link between my Millsaps undergraduate experience and my joint law and divinity degree is increasingly clear. As a double-major in English and political science, with an honors thesis in religious studies, I found deep support at Millsaps for my budding interest in texts, institutions, and faith.

S

Studying law at Yale helped me better understand the institutions and rules that structure our society, while also providing practical tools for addressing real-world problems. Yale’s divinity school afforded unparalleled opportunities to reflect on my values and deepest concerns. Having studied law and divinity jointly, I hope not only to be better able to bridge sacred and secular worlds but also more equipped to think holistically about my place in the world. I returned to Millsaps in August—12 years after first arriving on campus. In my new position, I am special assistant to the president and assistant professor of political science. As an

academic, I will teach constitutional law and political theory; as a lawyer, I will review the occasional contract for the College. As a divinity school graduate, I will work with local United Methodist churches as the College reaffirms its Wesleyan heritage. As a member of the executive staff, I plan to draw on my interdisciplinary education that began at Millsaps as I help lead the College that has meant the world to me.

From Millsaps to Off Broadway, D’Amour’s writing shines The 1991 graduate’s play “Detroit” captured a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. BY NELL LUTER FLOYD

W

hen English professors roll out a list of influential modern writers in their classes, it’s not often that the roster includes a former student. Millsaps graduate Lisa D’Amour is on that roster for Dr. Suzanne Marrs, professor of English at Millsaps and Welty Foundation Scholar in Residence. “What a thrill it is to know that a student who starred in my 1991 Southern Women Writers class could now be one of the writers I list on my syllabus,” Marrs said. “Seeing Lisa D’Amour’s name in this week’s New Yorker is a teacher’s dream.” D’Amour, B.A. 1991 in English and theatre, used grounding in the arts gained at Millsaps to write the award-winning play “Detroit.” It was staged at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago and at London’s Royal National Theatre before opening in September at Playwrights Horizons in New York, where David Schwimmer, known as Ross on the TV sitcom, “Friends,” was in the cast. The play collected rave reviews such as this one from Charles Isherwood of The New York Times: “A sharp X-ray of the embattled American psyche as well as a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.” Earlier in the year, it received a coveted Pulitzer Prize for Drama.“You don’t find out that you’re a finalist until the day they announce the prize winners,” said D’Amour, who discovered in April that she’d won when she fielded voicemails from friends offering their congratulations. Alumni from Millsaps College gathered in New York to attend their friend’s Off Broadway hit. “It was really special to see it as a group,” said Shelley Lose Johansson, B.A. 1991, of Johnstown, Pa., who roomed with D’Amour her sophomore year, worked on theatre productions with her and has maintained ties through the years. Alumni also included Bridgett Hurley Goodwin, B.A. 1991, of Richmond, Va.; Laura Riemer Kellum, B.A. 1991, of Tupelo; Stephanie Stacy Richter, B.A. 1991, of Knoxville, Tenn.; Greg Chastain, B.A. 1991, of Atlanta; Dr. Ken Kellum, B.S. 1991, of Tupelo; Scott Holley, B.S. 1991, of New Haven, Conn.; and Heather Jones, B.A. 1992, of New York City. “The play is a remarkable achievement,” Johansson said.

D’Amour wrote the play, which is about relationships and the recession, in 2009 as the economy was declining. “It takes on a new resonance, having done it during an election year,” she said. “Detroit” allows D’Amour’s writing talent to shine while the collaborative work she’s also known for blends theatre and installation art and is site-specific, often outside of traditional theatre settings. She often works with her longtime collaborative partner Katie Pearl, operating under the name Pearl Damour and sharing the role of playwright, director, fundraiser, producer, designer and tour manager. During “How to Build a Forest,” a collaboration with visual artist Shawn Hall, D’Amour, and Pearl, and a team of performer/builders assemble and disassemble a simulated forest on stage in the course of eight hours. D’Amour credits her years at Millsaps for laying the foundation for her collaborative efforts in theatre. “What was amazing for me in terms of my Millsaps experience was it was a small theatre department, and I would end up being able to do everything. I designed lighting, I acted, you name it,” said D’Amour, who received an OBIE Award in 2003 for “Nita and Zita,” a play about two sisters who were showgirls and settled in New Orleans in the 1940s. Brent Lefavor, former associate professor of technical theatre at Millsaps and now resident designer at New Stage Theatre in Jackson, remembers D’Amour as a bright, articulate student involved in all aspects of the theatre and in Millsaps Players productions that included “The Warrior’s Husband,” “A Bequest to the Nation,” “Ring Around the Moon,” and “The Lady’s Not for Burning.” A former student sent Lefavor a copy of D’Amour’s “Detroit,” and he marvels over the huge fire that the script calls for and the technical ability required to handle it on stage. He’s not surprised by D’Amour’s success. “She was always very, very thoughtful,” he said. D’Amour, who earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Texas-Austin, said she did little creative writing at Millsaps, but she considers Marrs influential because she introduced her to the writing of southern women. D’Amour said she has worked with many professionals who graduated from Ivy League schools, but she’s always been secure in her education from Millsaps. “The education I was given gave me everything I needed, and more,” she said.
