Opening Days

Eckman’s home, free bowling, a concert by alumni Josh Cleveland and Todd Truitt, and a soccer scrimmage accompanied by a tailgate party were among the evening activities. As returning students made their way back to campus on Saturday, freshmen were busy with service projects. With the help of Campus Ministries and Student Association, four different orientation groups spent the day painting a couple of houses in town as well as two apartment buildings on campus. During this first week, the town of York gave their own welcome with a community fair, including free prizes and a picnic dinner on the courthouse lawn.

Starting Fresh

t can be a bit daunting to set foot on a college campus for the first time as a student. All the prep time and anticipation that accompanies the freshman experience morphs into reality as the car pulls into the parking lot on a beautiful Wednesday morning. New beginnings, new friends, new schedules, a new home. Welcome to York College! It was a busy orientation schedule Thursday through Saturday, including academic advising, campus tours, iPod touch demonstrations, and get-to-know-you sessions with Student Association, club reps, and YC Campus Ministries.

usic and the smell of food wafted from Kiplinger Avenue, attracting students to join in the festivities of the annual Block Party. Hosted by YCM, this year’s party did not disappoint with its selection of fun finger foods, such as corn dogs and cotton candy, to the various activities that occupied the brick street. Student Association helped fund the inflatable game rentals where balance seemed to be a key component. Laughter was produced in abundance from the boxing arena, bungee cord race, and sumo

wrestling pad. If that wasn’t entertaining enough, the popular dunking tank gave its share of light hearted moments. To cap off a great evening, a studentorganized talent show made the party complete. In September, the choir and athletic teams participated i n t h e Yo r k f e s t P a r a d e , representing the college and tossing candy to onlookers. With nearly 200 students involved, the parade provided a great venue for York College to show their appreciation to the community.

he end of September brings a lot of excitement as it marks the official beginning of a new year for social service clubs on the YC campus. After a few weeks of getting to know some of the particulars of clubs and their members, freshmen and transfer students are able to pledge one that best fits their personality. The mail room on Monday morning ushers in Club Week with a flood of students anxious to know if they were drafted

into their club of choice. The days to follow are filled with intense fellowship, friendly competition, abundance of fun, conversations around food, and a community service project. While each club has its own style, there are actually more similarities than there are differences. Every club strives to build relationships, while serving God and one another. In general, clubs provide a way for students to get involved on campus and build friendships that can last a lifetime.

On A Pedestal Coronation

Josh Baerg served as host and relied on the talents of Patrick Clark to run the music. The evening was full of entertainment and laughter as new club members strutted their stuff and helped to set on a pedestal the chosen beaus and sweethearts for the year.

Where the Heart Is Homecoming 2011


hat does a flash mob in front of McGehee Hall have in common with YC alumnus and American Idol participant Caleb Hawley, and what are all those people waving at? Why did YC Theatre’s Caleb Clark get his hair buzzed and what does Maegan Detlefs see in Dylan Ford? Was Erich Loper able to pull off his Fire in the Furnace tenor solo at 10:30 in the morning? For students who stayed in town through YC’s Homecoming weekend, those questions had answers. Campus, in all of its fall splendor and ideal temps, was right on cue for guests, alumni, and college prospects

to enjoy the festivities. The schedule included concerts performed by Psallo and the Concert Choir, varsity soccer and volleyball games, and the theatre department’s hilarious Send Me No Flowers production. The 2011 YC Homecoming Court came on the field at half time of the men’s soccer game with each class having representatives introduced. To the delight of the crowd, Jason Lloyd, a senior Physical Education major was dubbed York College king, and crowned queen was Bethany Saylor, a senior Music Vocal Performance major.

Special Occasions Campus Highlights


tudents don’t need much of an excuse to dress up and have fun. And on certain occasions, dress down and just be totally off the wall silly. Whether it’s the annual Halloween festivities or the

seasonal Cocoa and Carols, a break from the routine is a good excuse to get away from the books for a while. Throw in a spirited Sketchy Tuesday or a 10-inch snowfall and you easily have the makings of a self-proclaimed holiday.

It’s better with food


ood and fellowship go hand in hand at York College and such things as pre-finals breakfast, Iron Chef, and an ice cream social to close out the year are welcomed annual reminders of that fact. The anxiety of taking final examinations just before Christmas is certainly tempered with the traditional late night country-style breakfast that is served up by the York College administration, faculty, and staff. Taking a break from the books around 10:00 Sunday evening, students replenish their energy supply with a broad variety of menu items. It’s a lighthearted evening, giving students and

volunteers just what they need to begin the week. At the end of January, student chefs emerged to compete in the third annual Iron Chef competition sponsored by Aladdin. Lemons were the secret ingredient, but the real surprise was that each dish had to be vegetarian. Judges sampled and scored each entry for taste, creativity, and overall presentation while emcee, Nick DiToro, provided the commentary. Team Aladdin was crowned champions of the competition with Happy Pony Team taking 2nd. The pre-finals ice cream social in the spring also scored big with the student body and provided a late night break that everyone looked forward to before hitting the books.

Losing Yourself Shine Retreat


hine Retreat, a mid-winter tradition at York College, was held the second weekend in February at the Timberlake Ranch, near Central City. Regardless of the weather, it has become an annual favorite for campus as it draws more than 130 students to interact in a less formal setting. Tim Lewis and the campus ministry staff do a great job every year of keeping the event fresh, fun and student-focused. This year’s theme, Lose It, was highlighted by three keynote presenters: Mark Smesrud, Jim Tuttle, and Rusty Ridley. All three speakers did an exceptional job as they challenged students to get Shawn Gronseth catches the camera’s eye as Parker Seilstad gets set to launch the pool ball.

Shine Retreat

rid of anything that inhibited their relationship with Christ as well as encouraged them to use their talents and gifts to His glory and not for self gain. The popular breakout sessions were led by faculty, staff, and YC alumni. There were also a variety of indoor and outdoor activities including board games, volleyball, card games, dodgeball, and of course paintball in the snow. Friday night’s talent show was a hit with a distinct panel of judges making the call. Bobby DeHart, LaRee Eckman, Catherine Seufferlein, and Rusty Ridley gave their “expert” critique throughout the production and declared in the end that students Jordan Siebold and Alfred Peters were the co-champions of the night.

or some college students, spring break means sunshine and relaxation, a respite from the cares of campus life. For many students, however, spring break is an opportunity to serve. This year 46 students from the social clubs participated in spring missions, serving the poor and homeless in four cities. Eight members of Delta/Kyodai, along with sponsors Greg and Jaclyn Smith, worked in downtown Chicago. They delivered 25 boxes of donated shoes, cleaned, moved furniture, loaded and unloaded trucks, and sorted donated clothing at homeless shelters as well as spent time visiting with families living in the shelters. Ten members of AXE/Beta and sponsors Susan and Kent Van Deusen joined forces with a youth group from Amarillo, Texas and worked at a couple of city missions in Oklahoma City called The Refuge and Cross and Crown. They planted community gardens, cleaned roads and yards, packed and distributed food, and prayed with those that came into the missions. Dr. Mike Case sponsored nine members of Kingsmen/ Omega Phi on a trip to Littleton, Colorado where they worked with His Hands Christian Ministries for the third year in a row. They provided food, clothes, and prayers for anyone in need and helped the ministry move to a new location. They also spent time visiting with the homeless. Sig Tau/Theta Psi was the largest group as 19 students, along with sponsor Trisha Goben, traveled to Franklin, Tennessee (a suburb of Nashville). Students spent mornings working with Graceworks Ministries, sorting food and clothes for the organization. In the afternoons, they worked with My Own Backyard Ministries, which provides outreach, tutoring, and mentoring to inner-city youth after school.

Curtain Call Songfest 2012


nder the direction of Amy Fraser, the 35th annual Songfest production was a smash hit for all of those involved. Months of planning, designing, creating, and rehearsing went into the three-night event with its closing finale on Saturday night of the High School Days weekend. In all, about one fourth of the York College student body participated in pulling off the celebrated show. The talents of the six hosts and hostesses: Patrick Clark, Maegan Detlefs, Angelene Gray, Cameron Holmes, Bethany Saylor, and Caleb Smith were a wonderful compliment to the club shows and together, made the production a great success. At the completion of Saturday night’s performance, clubs anxiously awaited with the audience to hear the judges’ tally of their three-night production. Would Delta Chi Alpha and Kyodai

surge ahead in the professional world with Taking Care of Business, or would Beta Beta Sigma and Alpha Chi Epsilon repeat as champions with their zombified Nightmare? Could the judges be swayed by all the movie tunes sung by Omega Phi and Kingsmen in Cinemania, or would Theta Psi and Sigma Tau put together the best portfolio with Paparazzi? And the Oscars go to… Best Music and Best Choreography went to Sig Tau and Theta Psi, while AXE and Beta claimed the Best Costumes award. These two shows split the award for Best Theme, making this year’s production another very tight race. The President’s Award for the best club show overall went to Theta Psi and Sig Tau’s Paparazzi.

Titanic Proportions History comes alive


he campus community had the rare opportunity to go back in time as two pivotal historic events were honored in both the fall and spring semesters. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, faculty from the English, Bible, and History departments hosted a symposium on the publication in November. Published in 1611, this English translation of the Bible became the most influential book in Western

“To Make a Good One Better: The King James Bible, 16112011” was presented over two evenings in November.

culture. The two-day symposium was moderated by history professor, Tim McNeese, and was complete with lecturers, costumes authentic to the time, an extensive display of artifacts and facsimiles pertaining to the translation, and Renaissancestyle refreshments. In the spring semester, 100 years to the day from when the Titanic struck the fateful iceberg, a group of costumed history enthusiasts gathered in the Mackey Center to learn more about the most deadly non-wartime tragedy at sea. The Miller Room was transformed into the A la Carte Restaurant on board the Titanic, and many of the 120 participants came in character, sporting period gowns and suits. The somber tolling of a replica bell from the Titanic marked in real time the sinking of the ship, interrupting the program with reminders every few minutes of what was going on a hundred years earlier. From iceberg encounter to final submersion, the sinking of the “unsinkable” ship lasted only 2 hours and 40 minutes. The York College event followed the same timeline. McNeese provided commentary throughout, focusing on the unlikely events and the human folly responsible for the tragedy.

Saying Goodbye Graduation 2012


amily and friends gathered in the York City Auditorium on May 5 to witness the class of 2012 receive their bachelor’s degrees. Sharing stories of military heroes and as well as scripture, General William M. Fraser III, commander of U.S. Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base, called students to live up to their potential. General Fraser challenged graduates to a life of character and excellence through the four principles of passion, discipline, commitment and sacrifice. “If you have the desire to do your best, if you have the discipline to focus that desire, if you have the commitment to finish the job and the willingness to make sacrifices for a greater cause, then I will contend that you have enormous character and you will achieve your dreams,” said Fraser. At the conclusion of the commencement address, Dr. Tracey Wyatt presented the Dale R. Larsen

To the delight of the senior class, Bryan Armstrong of Topeka, Kansas, who graduated Cum Laude with a degree in sports management, was the recipient of this year’s award. At the conclusion of these honors, President Eckman shook each graduate’s hand as he presented them with their earned diploma. Seniors were then hooded by a relative or close friend.

Experiential Learning Real-World Education


rom ancient ruins in Greece to the Statue of Liberty, York College students had the opportunity to go beyond the classroom after year-end finals and take learning to a whole new level. Three faculty-led experiential learning trips had students interacting with history and its impact on the present in a very personal way. Dr. Frank Wheeler led a 12-day tour overseas traveling with students, as well as a few alumni and others, to Turkey and Greece, visiting some cities from Paul’s missionary voyages. The group made stops in Istanbul, Troas, Troy, Pergamum, Laodicea, Ephesus, Athens, Corinth, Thessalonica, and Philippi. Senior Bible major, Bryce Ballard, said, “It’s a very different experience to read the letter to Ephesians after having walked the streets of Ephesus. It inspired me.” Tim and Beverly McNeese led a group of seven students through a tour of the Mid-Atlantic region visiting sites of historical and literary significance, including those relating to the French and Indian War, the Erie Canal, Mark Twain’s home, and a dozen other locations. “You can sit in a classroom

and talk about something until the cows come home,” said Tim McNeese, “but there is nothing like getting out there and seeing the places where history was made and where people lived it.” Education faculty members Erin Dehart and Chris Luther led 22 students on a Holocaust studies trip. Participants’ hearts were broken and minds were opened as they met Holocaust survivors and visited museums and monuments in New York City and Washington D.C.

Beta & AXE


eta Beta Sigma and Alpha Chi Epsilon enjoyed a great year on and off campus. Beta once again volunteered their time at Adopt-a-Pet walking the dogs, and a couple of times during the year they partnered with AXE in painting the library’s main floor. As a brother/sister club, Kiss ’n Tackle was a favorite activity along with bonfire devotionals... supplied with a healthy dose of s’mores, hot dogs, and hot chocolate. During spring break, they traveled to Oklahoma City to work at two city missions. Joining forces with a youth group from Amarillo, Texas in a mentoring program, they planted community gardens, cleaned up roads and yards, packed and distributed food, and prayed with those that came into the missions. Both clubs were recognized at the All-College Banquet for their members’ athleticism with the All Sports Award. For Songfest, AXE and Beta put on their best scary faces with their show Nightmare. Their zombie makeup and asylum-issued outfits won them Best Costumes while they split the award for Best Theme with Sig Tau and Theta Psi. Macy Mountjoy found her calling as a very creepy zombie.

Delta & Kyodai


elta Chi Alpha and Kyodai made the most of their year as they welcomed new members and immediately got down to business serving others. Delta once again worked throughout the year with supervising the downtown York Children’s Museum every Saturday. They teamed up with Kyodai for a spring break mission trip to Chicago where they cleaned, moved furniture, loaded and unloaded trucks, and sorted donated clothing at homeless shelters. They also spent time visiting with families living in the shelters. Delta was recognized once again at the AllCollege Banquet with the Community Service Award as well as repeat recipients of the Big Heart Award for their participation in the campus blood drives. For Songfest, Delta and Kyodai put in the long rehearsal hours to perfect their show Taking Care of Business.

Omega Phi & Kingsmen


mega Phi and Kingsmen started the year off right with their part in the Coronation program. Complete with cheese heads and Packer signs, Omega Phi gave their beau Zane Berner a very memorable serenade while Kingsmen and their wooden swords harmonized beautifully their traditional “She is so Wonderful” for sweetheart Amanda Kline. Both semesters the clubs cleaned their adopted mile of Highway 34 near the ethanol plant. Another tradition preserved was the annual spring break mission trip to Denver to work with His Hands Christian Ministries. With the organization’s move to a new location, the students transferred furniture and supplies so that the ministry could continue with minimal interruption and also spent time visiting with the homeless people the ministry reaches out to. For Songfest, Omega Phi and Kingsmen chose the theme Cinemania featuring a plethora of movie tunes and guest appearances from Kung Fu Panda Clark, the rich and famous Mandy Kline, and Robin’s Merry Men. At the AllCollege Banquet, Kingsmen won the Community Service Award.

Theta Psi & Sig Tau


heta Psi and Sigma Tau members were almost inseparable throughout the year as they made the most of their time together. With more than half of the YCM staff being from one of these clubs, the spiritual side of campus life was a high priority for these students. That was evident in their spring break mission trip to Franklin, Tennessee where they worked with Graceworks Food Pantry as well as the inner-city mentoring program Franktown Open Hearts. With 20 students going on the trip, it was the largest YC group to travel for spring missions and for some members, their best club experience of the semester. However, not to be outdone, their Songfest production was also a monumental experience as they took celebrity status to a whole new level in Paparazzi. Winning Best Music and Best Choreography and splitting Best Theme with AXE and Beta, they were able to celebrate the President’s Award for best club show overall.

party. Later in the semester, they promoted their first of two digital scavenger hunts and teamed up with social clubs in putting together the all-campus Christmas party. In February, SA sponsored Singled Out, the annual Valentine’s game that always draws a good crowd. In the spring, they put on an awesome Easter Egg Hunt in Cherry Hill with Sean Carroll and Sierra Trower taking home the grand prizes of an Xbox and a Nintendo Wi. Throughout the year SA hosted YC Night at the Movies giving students an opportunity for inexpensive entertainment. At year’s end they helped put on a wonderful All-College Banquet and honored Janet Rush as Staff Member of the Year and Dr. Terry Seufferlein with Teacher of the Year.

The annual Shine Retreat is a great escape from the routines of campus: (counter clockwise from top) Tim Lewis and Rusty Ridley put on their game faces... sort of. The smiles of LaRee Eckman and Katie Kynion could melt any heart. Katy Keefer is motivated to do what it takes.

The Start Running, Stop Trafficking 5k run/walk had 125 participants, 20 volunteers, and over 150 people. It raised $1,900 for the Christian non-profit Tiny Hands International.

ampus Ministries went about doing good as they put their mark on many of the things that make life at a Christian college exceptional. From helping with the freshman move-in and organizing the campus block party, to providing year-round support and infrastructure to the spiritual wellbeing of the York College family. The YCM s t a ff , l e a d b y campus minister Tim Lewis, seemed to make a daily difference in the lives of students. Among their duties were laying the course of daily chapel, campus devotionals, and 9’o clock. A couple of big events that they organize every year are the freshmen service

projects during orientation and the campus-wide winter retreat getaway. In November, they assisted with a fundraiser for Tiny Hands International, raising $1,900 in the Start Running, Stop Trafficking 5k run/walk organized by YCM staffer Kristin Tuttle. In February, they came to the aid of fellow student Sam Mwago in raising the money he needed to return to Kenya for his mother’s funeral and to help with the actual funeral expenses. Assisting Lewis this year were senior staff members Rachel Johnson, Carson Tuttle, Kristin Tuttle, and a host of ministry team leaders. Students gather around Sam Mwago for a prayer during chapel.

ighly recognized for their level of choral artistry, the 65-member Concert Choir delivered inspiring and edifying performances throughout the Midwest under the direction of Dr. Clark Roush, Endowed Chair for the Performing Arts. For the first time, the choir’s performance at Homecoming was livestreamed on the YC website for alumni around the world to enjoy. Their Winter Tour over the Christmas break included concerts in Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. They performed their Spring Works Concert, The Soul Speaks: An Evening of Spirituals and Gospel Music, to a

nearly packed auditorium at the First Presbyterian in April. Selections included accompanied and acapella pieces by well-known composers such as Moses Hogan and Rene Clausen. Soloists for the concert were York College faculty members Dr. Adrienne Dickson and Amy Fraser, as well as York College alumna Sue Roush and several current students. Kay Magner provided the evening’s piano accompaniment. The concert was recorded and made available on YouTube. The choir recorded a CD titled Search Me, O God at the end of the year featuring their 2011-12 repertoire. Dr. Roush completed his 26th year at York College.

Celebration Singers


elebration Singers delivered on both their winter and spring productions, entertaining the campus and community audiences. Just before semester finals, Director Amy Fraser had the group prepped and ready for their annual Cocoa and Carols show. Gurganus Hall was packed for each performance to hear Christmas favorites such as Home for Christmas and Winter Wonderland to the popular You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch and Believe. Add the Helping Hands’ cocoa and cookies to the mix, and you’ve got a great recipe for the evening.

Their spring concert, Divas and Legends of Pop, explored rock and pop music from Elvis Presley to Brittany Spears. The repertoire was fun for all ages as the group presented music from several eras made popular by the likes of Bon Jovi, CCR, Village People, Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Madonna, as well as boy bands and others. With fun costumes and a well-designed set, the high-energy show was much more than your standard “show choir” fare.

Send Me No Flowers


he York College Theatre Department presented the light hearted and laugh-filled play Send Me No Flowers for the Homecoming festivities. When he experiences chest pains, chronic hypochondriac George Kimball (Caleb Clark) goes to the hospital for a checkup and overhears his doctor discussing the diagnosis of a terminally ill patient with an associate. Assuming he is the one scheduled to die, he asks his friend Arnold (R.J. Roberts) to help him find a new husband for his wife Judy (Maegan Detleffs) so he’ll know she won’t be alone once he’s gone. George locates Judy’s old college beau Bert (Dylan Ford), now a Texas oil baron and attempts to hook them up. Meanwhile, Judy mistakes her husband’s good intentions for an attempt at a cover up. The chaos that ensues on stage is hilarious as George tries to straighten out his problems and get his wife back. Caleb was chosen 201112 Best Actor by his peers for his lead role in the production, and the drama departments’ Best Actress for the year went to Maegan for her portrayal as Judy. George lets his imagination run wild as he dreams up the appearance of a girl, played by Laurel Simpson. (left) George dreams of Judy selling pencils to strangers just to survive after he is gone.

hat do two teenagers with romance on their minds, a narcoleptic boom mic operator, and the perfect American family have in common? The annual One-Acts of course. Three comedies and a couch: an evening of comfortable comedy was presented by the York College Theatre Department just before the Thanksgiving break. This year’s emerging directors were Mitchell Roush, Patrick Clark, and Thomas Lichty. Roush wrote Quiet on the Set earlier in the year while studying acting and entrepreneurship at The International Theatre Academy of Norway. The show is about the worst film shoot ever with the plot involving a crazed director, some self-involved actors, two pages of nonsense dialogue and a narcoleptic boom mic operator. “It’s kind of like an episode of Seinfeld. Nothing really happens, but you laugh a lot,” Roush said. Clark’s show, Dinner with the MacGuffins, focused on a typical American high school student named James, who brings his girlfriend, Karen, over for an afternoon of romance. As James and Karen attempt to make sparks fly, they are repeatedly interrupted by everything from James’ eccentric family members to the FBI. Clark, who aspires to work in the film industry, said the show was a lot of fun to direct. The final show of the evening was Edward Albee’s The American Dream, which director Thomas Lichty described as a dark comedy. “It’s funny, but it has serious undertones,” and it makes you think, said Lichty. The plot involves a married couple obsessed with the idea of having the perfect child. In the end, the audience comes to realize that the couple’s version of perfection—wealth, professional success, good looks—is purely cosmetic and ultimately empty. The young directors oversaw every detail of their productions, from script and cast selection, to budgets and set construction.



Throughout the play, the townspeople sang hymns and spirituals that served to underscore dramatic moments. (left) Homer’s gift of gab and love for soda pop gave the play an amusing lighter side. (right)

Anatomy of Gray


ohn Baker chose to direct the emotionally powerful and funny production of Anatomy of Gray for the spring drama. Baker described the deep, rich play as “a children’s story for adults”. The drama touched on themes of science and religion that challenged audience members and made them think. Set in Indiana in the late 1800s, Anatomy of Gray dealt with death, loss, love, and healing in a unique comingof-age story. Music played an important role in the show. The Gospel hymns performed by the cast were authentic to the time period and served to underscore dramatic moments in the production. Jasmine Agee won the year’s Best Actress award for her portrayal of June Muldoon in the production, while Royce Roberts was chosen Best Supporting Actor as Pastor Phineas Wingfield. Seniors and veterans of the York College stage, Maegan Detlefs and Bethany Saylor, served as assistant director and music director, respectively. Dr. Gray looks over the spots on Tiny’s legs while she helps her brother stand on his head to relieve his unbearable pain.

raveling Children’s Theatre celebrated its 15th season with their production of The Wizard of Oz under the direction of John I. Baker III. Beginning in the spring semester, the 12-member cast surrendered their Tuesday and Thursday mornings to practices and performances at various elementary schools in Nebraska and for special events, such as High School Days. With twenty-five performances in the semester, the students in this theatre company interacted with thousands of elementary kids, bringing each show to life with a personal touch. Baker himself wrote the crowdpleasing script, and this year added to the schedule a three-day, four-performance tour in Colorado the week after spring break. “The cast grows so much through the experience of repeated performances and serving as cast and crew,” said Baker. “Seeing the magic come to life is what acting, directing, set construction and watching are all about.”

The group hosted their annual Edgar Allan Poe-try slam in October, transforming the Spiritual Life Center into a venue of spooky poetry and haunted recitations. In February, they gave students who were in a romantic mood the opportunity to speak their feelings out loud in the popular L o v e r s ’ Ly r i c a l L i n e s . B o t h events were well attended and enjoyed by the campus family. Since the society’s international conference was too far away to travel to this year, the YC chapter of Sigma Tau Delta took

a day-trip in the spring to visit the Denver Art Museum and take in a play at the famed Space Theatre, a 550-seat theatre in-the-round. At the end of the spring semester, they completed their ninth edition of Unvarnished Words, a publication of more than 60 short stories, poetry, essays, artwork, and photography contributed by students. 2011-12 Sigma Tau Delta Officers Kirsten Clements – President & Treasurer Kimberlee DeGroot – Vice President Logan Siddall – Secretary Thomas Lichty – PR Representative

Using the Book of Luke as their English text, the students who were on the LST teams were able to have oneon-one conversations about the Gospel in four different countries: Belgium, Italy, Japan, and Taiwan.

They played a complete 10-game season with Hannah Sheldon as the leading scorer for the JV team.

he men’s and women’s cross country teams both put together great finishes to the regular season by strong performances at the MCAC meet. The women flashed through the finish lines ahead of the competition at conference with four of the five runners placing in the top 10. Led by senior Kristin Tuttle with her second place finish, the team came away with a conference championship and an automatic seed for Nationals, held in Vancouver, Wash. Named All-MCAC were Tuttle, Karissa Austin, Alice Hackett, and Kameryn Brewster. Two from the men’s team also competed at Nationals as Warren Lannon and Kyle Bottom ran their personal best times for the year at conference and placed third and eighth respectively. The freshman duo paced the Panthers to third place in the conference and were also named All-MCAC. The indoor track season was highlighted with two NCCAA national champions in the shot put, Shaylee Carlock and Andrew Aragon. Both athletes delivered again at the NCCAA outdoor competition in May and repeated their national championship bid. Aragon recorded his personal best at the meet with a throw of 57’4¼” and won the event by four inches. Carlock’s throw of 46’9” bested the competition by five feet and set a new NCCAA record. At the MCAC meet, Carlock was named female track and field athlete of the year as she won both the shot and discus events. In all, there were 12 event champions, 10 First Team All-Conference athletes, and 13 named Second Team. Head coach Justin Carver was awarded the MCAC Women’s Coach of the Year in both cross country and track and field. 2012 1st Team All-MCAC Track and Field Champions: Shaylee Carlock: shot put and discus Marybeth Ester: 200m Kameryn Brewster: 1500m Karissa Austin: 800m Jade Hodge: triple jump Andrew Aragon: shot put and discus Kawika Pedrina: 100m and 200m Ester, Liz Callaway, Hodge, Ebony Carther: 4x100m relay Austin, Brewster, Kristin Tuttle, Ester: 4x400m relay Justin Carver: MCAC Women’s Coach of the Year

Cheer & Pom Squad


C Cheer and Pom Squad hit the ground running at the beginning of the school year. After conducting a two-day open tryout and clinic in August, the ladies in blue and white gave their full support to the athletic program throughout the year under the direction of head coach Tamara Sanchez. Sanchez enlisted the help of Zeruiah Bandy and Marissa Roush to assist in the coaching duties and quickly began a quality cheerleading program. Besides the athleticism that’s required in executing some of their routines, the squad kept at the forefront of their performances an enthusiasm for the athletes, no matter what the score. Getting the home crowd fired up has its demands, but there was no doubt that the encouragement provided by this Panther team made a difference in its inaugural year of service to the student body.

Dr. R. Wayne Baker Chancellor


od richly blessed York College during the 2011-12 academic year with a near record-breaking fall enrollment of 507, another balanced budget, the addition of new Trustees and faculty, the growth of the College’s online programs, and the success of Panther athletics to name a few. A very special blessing came in early October in the honoring of Colis and Dolores Campbell as the first inductees to the York College Athletic Hall of Fame. Many of the coach’s former players joined in the celebration of one of YC’s most influential couples. A few weeks later, the administration was approached by an anonymous donor who further wished to honor the Campbells in an incredible way by fully funding a $1.4 million building project with their namesake, the Colis and Dolores Campbell Activity Center. Scheduled to be ready in January of 2013, the center will provide space for intramurals, a wide variety of student activities, special events, and daily chapel.
