A BRIEF HISTORY OF FLORIDA MEMORIAL COLLEGE In 1941, the Bethel Institutional Baptist Church merged with the Florida Baptist In- stitute of Live Oak, Florida, which has been founded by the American Baptist Home Mission Society in 1879. In 1893, in the Bethel Institutional Bap- tist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, the predecessor of Florida Memorial College was founded by a few farsighted and pub- lic-spirited Christian leaders whose pur- tional training for the young people o Florida in a climate conducive to the devel opment of Christian character. The College has worked with great dedi- cation since its founding to provide i Christian education for its students. It ha grown from a meager church room to a plant valued at more than one million dol- lars, a testimony to the confidence in the College, shared by those dedicated to Flor- ida Memorial College.

This year ' s graduates embody this new spirit and carry with them the dreams of the entire College Family — underclassmen, alumni, parents, faculty, staff and administration — as well as their own. As we pause and reflect upon the past year we realize that these positive changes are the culmina- tion of the last ten years in particular, which repre- sents perhaps the most dynamic period in the Col- lege ' s 108-year history. In this Special Edition of THE ARCH therefore, we celebrate these Ten Years Of Progress, proud in the knowledge that this is only the beginning of greater things yet to come.

AND ONWARD INTO THE FUTURE YEARS Mi THE WILLIAM LEHMAN AVIATION CENTER Local Mews Tuesday, September 9, 1986 The Miami Herald Secti- Memorial is high on aviation H ay Science Management and Airway Computer Science as well as other programs in Air Traffic Control and Transportation Management. It hopes to add in the near future a program in Aviation Maintenance Management. Construction has just started on a new $4 million William Lehman Aviation Center funded by the FAA and located across from the recently completed J.C. Sams Activities Center. To be completed in the summer of 1988, this three story, 4,500 sq. ft. structure will house classrooms, labs and offices in addition to a large auditorium. i DEDICATION Just as no great failing in human experience can be blamed on one individual alone, no great achievement can be said to be the work of any one person Yet there are those individuals who, through Divine Provi- dence, innate gifts, life experience, historical circumstance and dedicated determination to succeed in what they do, take on a special importance in human affairs. Theirs is the power to galvanize those around them in the pursuit of true greatness. It is they who impart the extra strength and exhortation to those who have given up not to drop the heavy burden with which they have been entrusted. It is they who plant and nurture seeds in soil where others say there can be no hope of growth. It is they who dare to dream when others dare not abandon the withered visions of yesterday. And with success, and the patting of backs and the exchange of glorious words, it is they who remind others that we have only just begun. It is to such an individual, whose vision, foresight, practicality and inspiring presence to the College Family have wrought giant steps in progress at Florida Memorial College that we officially dedicate THE ARCH for 1987. TO DR. WILLIE C. ROBINSON The 1987 Special Edition ARCH is proudly dedicated to our President, Dr. Willie C. Robinson, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of his tenure in that position. Indeed, he stands as the visible symbol of the changes and growth of the past ten years. At a time when Florida Memorial College, like so many historically Black institutions of higher learning, was traversing rough seas in stormy weather with a most uncertain future. Dr. Robinson came aboard, and in the quiet and businesslike manner that has become his hallmark, placed i calm and steadying hand on the helm, reassured his crew, of the importance of their mission and set the course for success. Under his guidance, Florida Memorial College has moved steadily out of the doldrums and into the brightness of a new day, which is only just beginning. In honoring Dr. Robinson we also honor all those who have helped; even he could not have wrought the necessary and creative changes that have brought us to where we are today. To Dr. and Mrs. Robinson, and to the entire College Family, go the sincerest wishes for continued good health, happiness and future success. ien he left Yah A native of Dunn.

Dr. Von D. Mizzell at Florida Memorial Col- lege. Beta Pi chapter which is based in Miami, Florida was the first fraternity on the Florida Me- morial College campus, and for 40 years have maintained the high ideals, goals, and excellence for which this noble fraternity was founded. " Our cause speeds nobly on its way " and it will never perish. The brothers of Beta Pi feel that a Sig- ma Man should be a shining exam- ple of leadership throughout the community and set the pace for all to follow on the college campus. Zeta Sigma relations are also a major concern of the brother of Beta Pi chapter, lota Alpha chapter of Zeta Phi Beta and Beta Pi chap- ter of Phi Beta Sigma had jointly sponsored a Zeta Sigma week in the spring semester of 1987. Dur- ing this week we had many social service, and educational events for the benefit of our campus and the Miami community. We have also officially designated a street on the Florida Memorial College campus to be named ' BLUE AND WHITE BOULEVARD ' . The two chapters have a very good har- monic working relationship and our love for one another is undeni- ably strong. Being the only true brother and sister greek organization it is in- evitable that we express our unity the family way (BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF THE DOVE). GOMAB Front row (I. to r.)-.

We are confident that the learning process has been effective, for the season 1987-88 will be our test year. Our team lost the services of Richard Anderson, 21 points a game, William Hagan our outstanding captain and leader and James Juluke our strong big man, all to graduation..

They had opportunities to study and observe the fragmented educational systems in that country, thus obtaining a deeper understanding of the manner in which the Apartheid system denies basic individual rights to over 80%of the population. The educators searched for ways to assist in alleviating some of the educational inequities for Blacks.

Dr. Henry Lyons, Pres. Florida General Baptist Convention Donation Day, first known as " Love Gift Day, " started when Mrs. Susie C. Holley, then wife of the president of Florida Memorial College, and a small group of women belonging to the First Bethlehem and First Central Associations, sensed a need to aid the College at Live Oak, Florida. The women of these two associ- ations came up with the idea of soliciting specific small items that were necessary to the operation of the College ■ canned goods, mops, brooms, clothing and even fattened hogs, enabling the College to use the monies available for specific mo- netary needs. Goods were donated in such abundance that they were shared with needy families that lived in the area of the College. The tradition of Donation Day has continued for 31 years on each Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Donation Day is indeed a time of thanksgiving!

ROOSEVELT WILLIAMS ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF MUSIC Mr. Roosevelt Williams, a native of Tallahassee who grew up in St. Petersburg, was a graduate of Bethune-Cookman College and also earned a master ' s degree in music from the University of South Florida while teaching music in the Brevard County Schools. In addition, he studied opera, voice and conducting at Florida A M University. In 1975, Mr. Williams joined the faculty at Florida Memorial College, where he became associate profes- sor of music and chairman of the Music Department, teaching voice, theory, composition and the entire spectrum of course work that leads to the bachelor ' s degree in the subject. In 1976 he organized the aptly named Ambassador Chorale which has brilliantly repre- sented the College in hundreds of locations throughout the United States and abroad, winning wide acclaim for him as a superlative choir director. The Chorale ' s audience was expanded even further under his direction, with the recording of the Howard Thurman Memorial Album ' ' (see The Arch, 1987, page 12). In 1986 Mr. Williams was nominated and voted Teacher of the Year by the FMC student body and in 1987 he was honored in a nationwide salute to faculty by the American Association for Higher Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Change for extraordinary contributions to undergraduate educational leader- ship on campus and beyond. On riovember 20, 1987, at the age of 53, Mr. Williams passed away at Parkway Regional Medical Center in Miami, ending his battle with cancer. The outstanding talent, warmth, leadership and commitment to excellence which he brought to Florida Memorial will be soreiy missed. BY THEIR EXAMPLE WE ARE EriLlGttTEftED , TION MR. JOHNNY LOUIS JACKSON CHIEF OF SECURITY Born in Baxley, Georgia, Mr. Johnny Jackson pursued higher education at Florida Junior College, Jacksonville and at St. Augustine Institute. As a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, he served six years of active duty during the Viet nam era, earning an honorable discharge in 1974. He also served as a deputy sheriff in Green Cove Springs, FL and with the campus police at University of Florida, Jacksonville before becoming a Florida State Trooper in 1980. In 1985 he joined the Florida Memorial College Family as Chief of Security, a post he held with exemplary skill and competence. On Friday January 15, 1988, the birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, a heart attack claimed the life of Chief Jackson at the age of 39. , MR. JOHN WILLIE THOMAS, JR, CLASS OF 1991 A native of Detroit, Michigan, Mr. Thomas had only recently joined the College Family in the Fall semester of 1987 as a freshman and a promising Pre-Law student when he succumbed to a congenital heart condition in October. Despite the short length of time that we were blessed to have known him he had already made numerous friends and had begun to demonstrate his academic potential. All who knew him were touched by him and carry his memory forward. His spirit remains a permanent part of the Florida Memorial College Campus. VE ARE INSPIRED, WE ARE CHALLENGED. PRESENTING...

" Although we are NAIA members, all of the schools we competed against are The Miami News Reg U S. Potent Office Division I schools. Johnson, who missed qualifying for the 1988 Olympics himself by a second, won first place in a number of other track and field events this year. These include re- lays held at Florida A M University, Tus- kegee University, the University of Miami and Edwards Waters College. He also holds the NAIA District 25 record in the 400- meter intermediate hurdles.

FOUNDERS ' DAY Attorney Patrick Russell-McCloud, nationally known as an electrifying, dynamic and articulate orator, was once again the keynote speaker for one of Florida Memorial College ' s many special ceremonies. She spoke inspirationally at its 108th annual Founders ' Day Ceremony on Tuesday March 22, 1988. Her speech, entitled ' Mountain, Move Out of My Way " , was encouraging and inspiring to administrators, fac- ulty, alumni and visitors as well as to students. She spoke of how, for over a century, Florida Memorial College has moved many mountains out of its way through hard work and sin- cere dedication and thus how it can continue to be a " moun- tain mover " for many decades to come. The audience was so mesmerized by her presentation that she received a standing ovation. Her greatest applause, however, came as she said, " When you turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones and those obstacles into opportunities, that ' s when you can really say, Mountain, move out of my way ' " .

JACKSON VISITS FMC DURING THE CELEBRATION OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KINGS BIRTHDAY. Through the energetic efforts of George Fishbume, president of the Campus Chapter of the NAACP, Presidential Candidate Jesse Jackson included PMC in his whirlwind itinerary through Florida. Making himself right at home, he dispensed with the usual security limitations to allow a standing-room-only crowd to hear his remarks. With characteristic eloquence, Rev. Jackson began by reminding us that the Christmas holiday we had just celebrated was not a story of Santa Claus and gift-giving but was rather, in modem terms, the story of a homeless couple, financially poor — he unemployed, she preg- nant, and surrounded by rumors and gossip about the unborn child — unable to receive their most basic needs. With this story he illustrated the need for public policy to " love all the babies " and care for all of society. In return, we must maximize our involvement in public policy — a goal that was translated into immediate action with on-the-spot voter registration as he concluded his speech.

His visit was arranged by the Kheprera Study Group, a South Florida chapter of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations (ASCAC). Prof. Van Sertima delivered a spirited and thought-p rovoking message, complete with slides, followed by a lively question-and-answer period and book signing session.
