In developing the theme for this year ' s book, the staff realized that fam- ily ties aren ' t the only ones that bind us. Instead, here at Milligan College a closeness. . .a bond. . .exists among the students, faculty, and Milligan commu- nity. This bond consists of many things, but the most important commonality is the ability to meet and overcome chal- lenges through the strength that Christ gives. Milligan College, Tn 37682 8 8 P.H.

This private, four-year college affiliated with the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, offers twenty- three areas of study and a thirteen- to-one student-faculty ratio. Perhaps this closeness with the faculty is one of the first bonds students realize as being different from other cam- puses. With every new challenge a bond is created. " I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me, " and it takes patience to meet a goal. Take, for example, the chal- lenge of meeting new people. A stu- dent will find that he is unpacking his anxieties and uneasiness along with his stereo, but it won ' t take long to realize that the new " peo- ple " will quickly become fast friends.

Ray i Opening The students at Milligan have found many challenges throughout this year — establishing and enjoy- ing friendships, finding people with common career pursuits and goals, and striving academically. The thread that weaves these bonds to- gether, however, is Jesus Christ. Ev- eryday, we find ourselves meeting the challenges He allows us to face. We grow spiritually in all aspects of campus life — from lending a help- ing hand to leading devotions in an I.C.U. group to attending ser vices on Sunday. The Milligan College ex- perience truly allows our ties that bind be everlasting ones. — Melanie Downs Jamie Smith and Charlene Stevic smile as they make their way to lunch. Photo by R.

Opening Student Life " % I X The most distinctive and unique quality that Milligan College possesses is the people who create the col- lege community. The activities that both students and faculty participate in make long lasting memories that forever keep the ties that bind Milligan College community intact. —Beth Wolfe ? v u Student Life Back to School 4% ee 0«te Dorms were opened and students were unpacking as the 1987-88 school year was about to get under way. New students arrived on campus a few days before upperclassmen in order to become aquainted with the Milligan College campus. Freshmen and transfers said farewell to their families and hello to a couple of days tests with some fun mixed in courtesy of team leaders. Campus activity sprung to life as old students arrived from various places around the country and the By Beth Wolfe world. The friendships that bound students together were rekindled after three months of separation. Returning to school was easy compared to registration which was just around the corner. Once again long lines, choosing a Conv. seat and figuring out schedules came and went with no major casualties. The first week of school is both exciting and hectic. Soon classes began and students took a break at least until their first tests. Photo by RonnAnn Naedeie Sue Scott complains to Mike Smith about receiving no credit for convocation.

" cries Billy Haskins. Lori Knick assists Dyke McCord in that delightful process of registration. First Week Spiritual Life ii De transformed " S " piritual life on campus at Milligan is a point of concern to students, faculty and HI administration. Because of its affiliation with the Christian churches does not automatically create the ideal Christian atmosphere at the college, many students do actively seek to increase spiritual growth on their own. The Religious Affairs Committee was therefore quite active this year, providing opportunities for students to enrich their college lives through Christian study and fellowship. Religious Affairs organized several activities which occured regularly throughout the year, including weekly vespers services and small Bible study groups. Special occassions included an all night lock-in at a local church and a pizza party for new students second semester. The highlight of the second semester was By Laura Bennett Spiritual Emphasis Week, during which the committee had planned activities each night, ranging from a banana-split party to a communion service. Christianity has always been a part of Milligan College, but all too often it has been overshadowed by other aspects of " college life " . Fortunately as demonstrated by the Religious Affairs Committee, a significant effort was made on the part of the students this year to bring spirituality back to the forefront of life on campus. " Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God ... " Romans 12:2 Photo by C Stevlc Beth Spencer finds that it is important to spend time studying the Bible with friends.

Spiritual Life on Campus 11 What ' s In? 7 teticty Although academics is a first priority at Milligan College I students only spend a small percentage of their time in the actual classroom. The hours remaining, or free time, are spent in many different activities. With each year there arises new and old ways of studying and seeking entertainment. Many popular games and campus activities became the best way to blow off steam and spend time with friends. What is Alan Hayes drawing? A stick man is the only clue his team has. " Oh no. not a difficult one! " exclaims John Gable, Robin Cuthbert and Chris Jefferson. The game Pictionary swept across the Milligan campus. Students were found drawing (or scribbling) on chalkboards and notebook papers all over campus while friends guessed what the artist was drawing. As in any game, few won and many lost, but all who played had lots of fun. One of the most successful activities sponsonred by the social affairs committee was the First Annual Road Rally. Each team decorated a car in any fashion in order to travel the streets of Johnson City in search of clues until the finish line is reached. 12 Matt Hunsacker. Jim Byrd.

Various places such as the dorm, the library, the park or even Perkin ' s Restaurant were popular places for students to go. What will it be Cindy Stuck, the jumbo barrel of popcorn or nachos? Many Milligan students saved their pennies for each Tuesday night when an area theatre offered movies for 99c. Friends piled into cars to see the newest flicks which included Three Men and a Bab];, Princess Bride or Wall Street. It was definitely a weekly highlight for many students.

The grill and snackbar served by the students who were not satisfied by the edibles presented by the cafeteria. A large screen television adjacent to the snackbar created a great place to eat and watch " The Cosby Show " One of the best aspects of the new Student center was the recreation room. This added feature enabled students to find entertainment on campus between By Beth Wolfe study sessions. The nurse ' s office was installed at this convenient location. Now students can receive throat clu- tures as they study or play games. The study areas provided a comfort- able atmosphere for students to do homework. Couches were installed to create a home-like atmosphere. The McMahon Student Center proved to be a great asset to the Milligan College campus. It provided students with a place to eat, play and study. Jill Baker rings up a purchase for Keri Duncan at the bookstore. 8-Ball spends his free time in the recreation room.

October 23rd through the 25th was the official Alumni Week- end this past year. Former students of all ages converged on our hilly campus to recall the " good old days, " as well as share in the excitement of today ' s cam- pus life. The weekend was highlighted by a va- riety of activities for both the athletic and nostalgic. These events included the an- By Laura Bennett nual Alumni 5K Run, an alumni-student flag football game, various class recep- tions, and an alumni banquet. Some students already knew several of the visiting alumni. Others enjoyed meeting the people who had lived in the same dormroom or shared the same post office box. Still others were primarily concerned with getting in a good game of football. Undoubtedly, though, by the time the weekend was over, students had a better understanding of just how strong the tie is that binds the hearts of Milligan students, both today and yes- terday. f Photo by Julie Pirkl Photo by RonnAnn Naedele The Alumni Banquet was enjoyed by all who attended.

Any senior girl is eligible to receive this award, and many of the organizations around campus present nominees every year for the position. This year ' s Founder ' s Daughter Convocation had Dr. James Street as the emcee filling in for Eugene Price, who was mourning over a major loss in the recent stock market crash. By Laura Bennett After all the nominees were presented, students cast their votes and anxiously awaited the outcome of the election. At a volleyball game that Friday evening, during Alumni Weekend, Stacy Drogowski was announced the winner, and Amy Sampson was chosen as runner-up. It was a tough choice, and even though only two girls were recognized, many thanks and congratulations go to the other nominees who were chosen as examples of the Milligan spirit!

Not only are the Chamber Singers involved in the fanfare but musicians, actors, wait- ers and waitresses all cooperated in each production. Although Madrigals has been a Milligan tradition for many years this year proved to be quite dif- ferent. The music and theatre depart- ments worked together with the Pio- By Beth Wolfe neer Food Service on all aspects of the production from lighting and the menu to music and acting. Authenticity was the most important consideration this December. New roles were created, such as Queen Elizabeth, to provide the audience with a realistic perfor- mance. All those who attended this Christmas season were delighted with the changes made in the production. As in the past Madrigal Dinners were a great success. Milligan College was very privileged to celebrate the Holi- day season with friends and family in the area. Beth Bivins sings ' like a bird ' . Photo by James Rooks Amy Sampson wants to make a toast.

Milligan College ' s theatre department undertook a seemingly insurmountable task this fall as it chose to perform the Tony-award winning play Children of a Lesser God. Children of a Lesser God on the surface was a play about the relationship between a deaf student and her speech teacher who falls in love with her. But the play really emphasized the importance of communication and real love. The cast members not only had to deal with the usual challenges of creating a role, but many of them also had to learn sign language to portray their roles. The first run of the show in October was so successful that extra seating was added to the theater and an extra weekend of performances was also added. Children of a Lesser God was critiqued by the American College Theatre Festival and was one of only six plays chosen from a field of over seventy entries in the Southeast to perform at the Regional Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina in February. The festival was sponsored by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and by the National Broadcasting Corporation. Randy Landry, Karin Gurley and Jonathan Chambers were also nominated for the prestigious Irene Ryan Acting Award Scholarship. Julie Pierce, Melissa Nelson and Rick Hessler assisted them in this competition. Landry also competed in the Kennedy Center National Acting Award Audition. Hessler participated in the National Critics Institute. The Milligan Students accomplished a nearly miraculous feat with their production of Children of a Lesser God and achieved widespread recognition and honor for their hard work and dedication.

Ray by Laura Bennett Surprise, surprise! Instead of con- tinuing in the dull and all too pre- dictable tradition of celebrating H the famous student holiday on a Wednesday, this year ' s social affairs com- mittee decided to throw everyone for a loop. April 25 was officially declared " Marvelous Monday " this year after at least one " fun-day fake-out " which had the entire campus fooled. The theme this year was " High Expec- tations " , and the empahsis of the day was success and getting the most out of life. The day was characterized by several un- precedented activities alongside the long- standing events such as faculty-student softball and tug-o ' -war. (Speaking of un- precedented, how about that great brunch? Did Pioneer do that?) This time students could be creative on an all-cam- pus videotape, try their hand at soccer, participate in game shows, or take a free balloon ride. The social affairs committee had a great year, and Marvelous Monday was the culmination of a lot of hard work.

Photo by Tim Getter Once again the Pardee Rowdies had an enjoyable and properly mischievous term this school year. How- ever, the year began on a sad note; John and Debbie Houchens, head resi- dents for 1986-1987, departed with their newborn son to accept a preach- ing ministry at the nearby Oak Grove Christian Church. Even though the Houchens were sorely missed, Jeff and Terri Jackson, the newly appointed head residents, helped make a smooth transition by continuing to supervise the hall in the same easy going manner as the Houchens had initiated. The Rowdies began the year with their annual " Freshman Water Slide " , an initiatory rite into Milligan College equal in importance to matriculation. A few weeks later Pardee hall carried out its initiation for the newest members of the Pardee brotherhood, primarily for- By Sanjay Dharmapal mer Webb residents who had seen the light. Later the restless Rowdies tried and punished various individuals who had foolishly dared to slander the ven- erable residence and or its inhabi- tants. In spite of the ordinary nature of life in Pardee during the 87-88 term it is important to note that the administra- tion decreed that Pardee Hall would be torn down as soon as it was feasibly possible to do so. It remained to be seen if this " bogus " edict would be carried out and if such an unthinkable travesty could be averted. Photo by Tim Getter Is the Darren Goar studying? There must be a full moon.

Sutton Hall 35 Changing reputations Through the years, Hardin has been the home away from home to many men and women. It has been known as a jock dorm, a rowdy dorm and a snob dorm. In recent years however the snob reputation has diminished immensely. The jock reputation is still in the past but the rowdy one is making a strong comeback. This is especially seen during campus initiations, toilet paper raids, late night Krogering and practical jokes played on each other. Because the dorm is small the ladies here develop a comforting sense of family. We are there for each By Susie McNett other in time of need. Each lady here is an individual. With our personalities blended together we function with harmony. We all have our share of ups and downs like when maintenance turns the water off in the morning without informing anyone. But we also have our ups such as fixed ditches and engagements. Hardin may be a little distant from the rest of the dorms but we usually have a lobby full of visitors every night! It goes without saying — " Our dorm may not be the prettiest but by gosh it is the best! " — footnote Melissa Nelson. Photo by C.

Leading the way as co- residence hall directors were Duard Walker, of course, and first year man Jim Wood.

Along with open houses, weekend movies were shown for folks who did not know where to go, especially when By David Bradley they were low on funds. The annual pizza party and the cigar party also added to the excitement on campus. Improvements were made in the dorm. For example carpeting was laid in the hallways, compliments of Webb Dorm Council and the Maintenance Department. The attitude of this fine institution can be summed up as told on the slogan of this year ' s shirts: " It ' s not just a dorm . . . it ' s an adventure! " Photo by S.

Ironically, the end of our Milligan years is translated t __ as a beginning. The completion of B8HB the phase of our lives signifies the start of yet another. Graduation. Yes, we have actually done it. Four years ago, it seemed an eternity away. And now, we are awed that time has passed so quickly. On May 15, 118 members of the Class of ' 88 received their degrees. It was a long awaited point in time, met with pride and a By Stacey Drogowski sense of accomplishment. Yet it was both a happy attainment and a sad one. A bitter- sweet rejoicing in the departure from a be- loved alma mater. So now we are educated — what next? Lowell Paxson, the commencement speaker, addressed that very issue — facing the real world. He challenges us with his 5 steps to success. And not simply material success, but the real riches found in Christ Jesus. The only success that really matters. That which forms the tie that shall bind us as a forever family. Photo by D Reid Graduates make their final desent down Seegar ' s Stairs. Brian Nix gladly accepts his diploma from President Leggett.

Virtually, everyone on campus was involved in the many sports activities in one way or another. Whether it was as a varsity team member, an intramural competitor or even as a rowdy spectator and supporter, the student body became deeply involved in sports.

Scott -A Big Hit! © i ' ' 0 1 aHIk ? " ■ The Milligan College fall baseball team had a very suc- cessful season against NAIA and NCAA teams alike. High- lights of the 16-7 season were 2 wins over rival ETSU (10-1 and 8-2) a win over Marshall Univ. (5-4), and a win over Appalachian State (5-1), all of which are NCAA Division I schools. Coach Jennett said that the big difference be- tween last year ' s squad and this one is a strong pitching staff led by sophomore return- ees A.R. Rhea and Jason Best, as well as by junior col- lege transfers Milt Flow, Todd Philips, and Joel McDaniel. The varsity pitching staff had a combined 2.05 ERA for the full season. Flow allowed only 2 walks in 24 innings, while Rhea struck out 32 bat- ters in 31 innings, including 14 K ' s in one game against Appy State. Seniors Eddie Holland (.431) and Jeff Scott (.371), along with junior Joel McDan- iel (.408) led the Buffs in the hitting department. The team was helped immensely by a strong nucleus of junior col- lege transfers acquired this year, and they hope to obtain a couple more. All in all it was a great fall baseball season for the Buffs. by R. Fields Some baseball players in their natural state pose for a picture. B. Skebo warms up his pitching arm. — photo by S.

Soccer proved to be an exciting sport to watch, as each game was well attended. The Buffs compiled a 6-9 re- cord, which is a good mark for a first year program. Their re- cord is also deceiving when one realizes that three of their losses were games in which the Buffs were in control and should have won. Head Coach Charles Carter has a great deal to look forward to next year because this year ' s squad fielded only two seniors and eleven freshmen. The leading scorers for this year ' s team were freshmen Marty Shirley and Brian Marsh. The defense for the soccer team would also like to express their appreciation to Robin Cuthbert who throughout the season served as statistician, ball-girl, assistant coach, the person they picked on, and overall helper.

Despite their loss, they were chosen to go to the NCCAA national tournament in Indianapolis where they placed in the top 8 teams in the nation. The team was led by 4 strong seniors, Gretchen Debbie Kardosh takes a break before a match Kutzner, Kim Hogan, Karen Nave, and Lori Gibson. Al- though setter Karen had a few injuries throughout the sea- son, sophomore Marti Smith took over the job very well. Karen and Lori earned the honor of NCCAA and NAIA all district players. Karen was also an NCCAA ail-American player, while Lori earned spe- cial honors as an NCCAA and NAIA academic all-Ameri- can. All girls worked very hard throughout the season, and they became a tightly knit team. With many of the girls returning, we look forward to a great season next year. by C. Miller KILLS! Seniors: K.

Milligan ' s roster in- cluded 7 freshmen and only 1 senior. This is promising for the future, but meant inexpe- rience this season. The Buffs ended with a 2- 28 record, defeating Clinch Valley and Bryan at home. Their season included a tour- ney at Kentucky State Univer- sity with 3 NCAA Div I col- leges and nationally ranked David Lipscomb.

The inexperience of five freshmen was a key factor this year, but by the end of the year they were making a name for themselves. Voni Verran began to show great leadership as a point guard. Amy Moody, a great hustler, proved that she will develop into a great team player. Dan- ette Jenkins, acquired at the beginning of the second se- mester, was a big contributor in scoring and rebounding. She was second on the squad in both categories. Kristina Peters did not play very much, but the last nine games she played very well. Jeannie Campbell did not play much either, but she worked hard photo by S. Ray photo by S. Ray and helped a great deal in the wins against Mars Hill and Lee. Stacey Heaton, although a junior, was new to the team this year. She was a consistent rebounder and was second in the conference at nine per game. Every team needs a leader, and Becky Wagner stepped forward to assume the role. During the season, Becky scored her 1000th career point. She was named to the second team all conference and averaged 21 points per game. Lori Gibson, the only senior, worked hard and came through when the team need- ed her. We will miss ya Lori! The Lady Buffs are com- mended for their fine work.

They began the year by trav- eling to (JT in Knoxville and having a practice session with their cheerleaders.

Sessions were very full, at times having up to 80 people exercising. Many stu- dents came because they wanted to " get in shape " for Spring Break. Throughout the thirty minute workout, music would be played to keep the pace moving. Some of the songs were " I Would Die 4 U, " " Push It, " and " Father Figure. " All the participants enjoyed this time of exercise and agony. — by C. Miller Katie Porter struggles to keep her feet in the air. Milligan students strain during the horendous exercises. Photo by S.

Led by junior Kevin Truesdell, the Buffs beat Ten- nessee-Wesleyan to capture third. The season had only one other tournament which was an invitational in Green- ville. Truesdell led the team Kevin and Darren are a bit confused on direction. Photo by S. Ray all season golfing in the num- ber one spot. Coaches John Derry and Jim Wood helped the team along by providing leadership and a steak dinner incentive for not finishing last at Niota. " We were able to play a lot of golf and have a lot of fun, " said sophomore Wes McElravey. At the conference tournament Truesdell fin- ished sixth individually. A rough first day took him out of fifth, but an impressive 76 on the second day pulled him back into sixth.

Whitlill Servin ' Up a Great Year Coach Walker ' s 1988 Milli- gan Buffs were a promising young team. Their 6-10 re- cord does not reveal how close many of the crucial matches were. With three freshmen and three sopho- mores playing this year, the team has high hopes for the future. The team had only two upperclassmen, but they will also be returing to play next season. The Buffs rounded out the season with a strong showing at the NAIA district 24 tournament in Nashville. Chip Mehaffey and Dennis Dove both advanced through the first round in singles. The combinations of Drew Dilley and Darin Wolfe and Kyle Ray and Trey Liebermand did the same in doubles. It was a good season of experience and learning for this young team. We wish them the best of luck next year. — by R. Fields Photo by E. Whitfill Row 1: C. Mehaffey, T. Lie- bermand, K. Ray Row 2: D. Dove, D. Dilley, Coach Duard Walker, D. Wolfe, R.

Under the coaching of Pam Kettle- son, Sharon Butler Jewett, and Andy Baker, the Lady Buffs compiled a 9-25 record for the season. The Lady Buffs were led in offense by the superb batting of Becky Wagner, Keena Coo- ley, and Amy Moody, who all batted over .300. Marty Smith also showed some great offense by hitting three triples in four at bats in a game against Montreat-Anderson. Defensively the Lady Buffs were very strong.

Sharon McNutt proved to be a very versatile player by playing five posi- tions in one game alone. To- wards the end of the year she also proved to be a very effec- tive pitcher. All players showed great hustle, but most appreciated were senior Ka- ren Nave and freshman Keena Cooley. Karen was a great encouragement to the team and showed great lead- ership. Keena came out know- ing she was the pitcher and hung in there even when we were down or she was injured. Thank you Lady Buffs for having such a positive attitude and a unified spirit.

After 39 games, the Buffs compiled a 28-11 re- cord, were 8-4 in their confer- ence, and were 12-6 in NAIA district 24 (TV AC). The Buffs swept ETSU in all four meet- ings and topped another NCAA rival Appalachian State. The Buffs also record- ed victories over NAIA foes Carson Newman, LMU, and nationally ranked King. The Buffs were led by seniors Ed- die Holland, Thad Angel, Jeff Scott, and Steve Lambert. This fine squad was also led by a great corps of pitchers balanced with strong hitting and fielding.

At no other school would you find workers as dedicated and devoted to the purpose of their work- place. They demand only the best from their students. For this reason, academics are probably the tie that closely binds us together towards our future. — Sarah Beth Simmons Academics 91 STUDENTS Playing the Academic Game " AGGGHHH!!! It ' s finals week. Where can I study without being interrupted??!! " is a common cry among Milligan students. The problem — finding a quiet place to study — is somewhat perplexing. Howev- er, Milligan students come up with practi- cal solutions to this complex concern. New students often start out with the precon- ceived notion that one can study in his her room without their concentration being disturbed. These unexperienced babes soon realize that studying in the dorm is impossible without the rattle of keys down the staircase railing or the blast of a sound system a few doors down. How do Milllli- gan Colleeege students tackle this oner- ous problem? We attempt to study in Derthick — Yeah!!! This is always appeal- ing to some but one soon finds that all rooms are soon occupied. — HVMMM — We could try the Science Building. How- ever, within this building there exists H 2 sqeezie bottles and emergency eye wash hoses. Being confronted with these cuties is a real possibility. The only way to es- cape the menance is to avoid the Science Building at all costs. Where do we turn next? — Yes — The Library — the epit- ome of ALL study places — complete with study corners and everything. Every- one knows libraries are places to study and not socialize, right?? Ahha! Ahha! " It ' s 11:30 pm, with a final tomorrow!! I haven ' t studied yet! What tremendous re- source will save this person? That ' s right — out of North Roan — here to save the grade. It ' s, It ' s — the home of the choco- late chipper — PERKINS!!! — Mike Shrout Photo by S. Ray Is Mike Shrout really studying or does he always sleep like that?

Academics 37«J THE ACTS S ta cte U ty i¥o UfO4i One of the many ways Milligan College enriches the commyunity is through the events sponsored by the Arts Council. Its purpose is to schedule artists, orchestras, and concerts during the year. These cul- tural events are not only enjoyed by stu- dents but by faculty and friends as well. This year ' s agenda included the North Carolina Dance Theatre. Their perfor- mance was enjoyed by all age groups be- cause the dancers used both traditional and modern dance techniques. Concerts are always a big part of the special entertainment that goes on at Milli- gan. This year Bobby Jones and the New Life Singers, an internationally known gos- pel music group, encouraged and enter- tained the Milligan Community. Students also enjoyed Michael Card and others. One of the year ' s highlights was a visit from Micheal Dubina. He brought his artwork and spent an entire week on the campus. Dubina eagerly talked about and explained his art with all who were inter- ested. The Arts Council and the Concert-Lec- ture Committee should be commended on the fine job they did of bringing enjoyable and enlightening people to the Milligan College Campus. — Beth Wolfe ■ - i DUB 1 1 HV H - RECEPTION Photo by D.

The Arts 95 MILLIGAN STUDENTS Rurtninqj off to Burope The Humanities Tour appeared in two installments during the summer of 1987. Fourteen students, two professors, and countless Europeans shared in this unique educational experience. Dr. Tim Dillon and his friend Greg Small conducted the first tour. Leaving just a few days after the commencement ceremonies at Milligan. Tim, Greg, and their harem of seven Milli- gan women embarked on their European adventure. Touring thirteen countries over 45 days, the trip provided a 24 hour a day dose of European art and cultrue. From the beautiful drive along the Mosel and Rhine Rivers in Germany viewing the magnificient robber baron castles to hag- gling over prices in the Atenian Plaka, the students as well as the tour guides etched unforgettable images of European culture in their minds. On the 4th of July while most Americ- nas were enjoying a family picnic and get- ting ready for an evening of fireworks, seven additional Milligan students and their guides, Professor Richard Major and his wife Karen, waited patiently at the Bal- timore-Washington International Airport to begin their journey. Through a large plate glass window at the airport they waved frantically to Dr. Dillon ' s returning warriors of the road and then they boarded the Icelandic Air jetliner and be- gan their journey. And while Ollie North testified in Washington, Dick, Karen, and the " kids " were having a memorable drive through the Yugoslavian country- side. Other highlights of the second tour included enduring an appressive heat wave in Greece, a rousing evening of cha- rades in Chartres, an unforgettable even- ing at the Piccolo Mondo Ristorante in Cassino, Italy, and a very special visit to the Hard Rock Cafe in London. And even though we all spent countless hours of touring meseums, art galleries, figuring out transportation schedules, and dealing with the unexpected, the summer of 1987 will always hold fond memories for all of us that participated in this " hands-on " experience. — Richard Major At an overlook near Cochem, Germany, Sheppard, Stevic, Barkes, Barkes, Bowyer, Guy, Johnson, and Mr. Major enjoy the view.

This year ' s participants were Susie Housholder, Susan Bryant, and Jona- than Chambers. During their time in England they took classes at the Selly Oak Colleges as well as the University of Birmingham. Under the direction of Robert Wetzel, director of Springdale College in the Selly Oak Colleges, the three foreigners experienced a European education first hand. On the weekends they would travel to different parts of England. For example, London, Oxford, and the an- cient city of York. In April they took a month and traveled throughout Western Europe vis- iting great cities such as Paris and Rome. The Semester Abroad Program turned out to be an invaluable educational experience for the three 1987 participants; not just in learning, but in living. — Jonathan Chambers Susan Bryant — a true goddess of ancient days.

Chambers Courtesy of J, Chambers Europe ' 87 97 LEARNING AREA FOR Professionals The Professional Learning Area is the area of Milligan College which is designed to fulfill the objective of preparing the student for securing a comfortable standard of living. In the liberal arts experience the stu- dent is dedicated to becoming a thinking individual. This learning be- comes meaningful in the current so- ciety if the student can, as part of the college curriculum, take courses or a program which will prepare him her with professional or voca- tional skills to serve others. Milligan College has assembled a teaching staff in public learning which has both mastery type experience and collegiate academic preparation. The student who plans to become a businessman woman, an accoun- tant, a computer technician, an ex- cutive secretary, a health profes- sional, a teacher can receive profes- sional education in the Milligan Professional Learning Area. Be- cause of the great need for the pro- fessional learning competencies, stu- dents who enter these programs find that a majority of their fellow stu- dents fill the classes to make the pro- fessional learning area the largest area of study on the Milligan Cam- pus. The teacher education faculty has on the drawing board a gra- duate program in teacher educa- tion. Responding to a national movement to provide a fifth year in the professional preparation of teachers, Milligan proposes to move and to upgrade graduate level some of the professional courses and to include an interm experience for professional teachers. Courses will be offered to community teachers who want to increase and perfect their professional competence. — Dr. P. Clark, Chairman Our appreciation goes to those who held part-time positions in this area of study: Mr. Albert Hauff, Mr. David Jarvis, Mr. James Pierson and Mr. Carroll Cockrum.

Stcvtc Faculty 99 AREA OF Biblical Learning The program in ministry and mis- sions is designed to give people ba- sic undergraduate preparation and provide a broad general foundation for seminary or graduate study. Stu- dents not only study selected por- tions of the Old and New Testament Scriptures in depth, but gain per- spectives on the devlopment of Christianity through the centuries and more detailed knowledge of the history of Christian Churches of Christ. Nearly all majors are initiated into at least one of the Biblical languages (Greek or Hebrew) and have instruc- tion in practical ministry courses. All serve a practicum or internship in a ministry-connected work (generally after their junior year), and this sum- mer our students will literally be serving coast to coast. Majors in Youth Ministry and Christian Education are growing; after four years as seperate degree programs, now one-third of our min- istry-related majors are in these Photo by C. Stevic areas. The latest addition is a new minor in Christian Ministries for bi-voca- tional ministers, and multi-disciplin- ary Family Ministries major — all in the hope that Milligan graduates can serve Christ more effectively. —Dr. Richard Phillips The Bible, the supreme written revelation of God to mankind, is the hub of the curriculum in Milligan College ... It speaks ... to every human situation and area of learn- ing .. . Consequently, no one can accurately call himself an educated person until he has acquired at least a working knowledge of God ' s pur- poses as expressed in the Scrip- tures. — Dr. Henry Webb, Chairman Left: Dr. Richard Phillips, Acting Chairman 1987-88.

A strong emphasis is placed on laboratory ex- periences, and analytical thinking. The area curricula are planned to support college requirements in the general education core and aca- demic interests of those students that elect to major or minor in biol- ogy, chemistry, or mathematics fre- quently require graduate or profes- sional study. Thus, students electing to pursue a degree in science or mathematics must recognize the need for high quality performance beginning with the foundational courses. — Dr. Charles W.

The Area looks at people in groups through the disciplines of Anthropology and Sociology; three courses are taught by Professors Hall and Higgins. As we study the assistance of people in groups we turn to the disciplines of Social Agencies and Youth Leader- ship, with courses taught by Profes- sors Bonner, Hall and Higgins. The Area also contains disciplines which deal with larger clusters of people in Geography, taught by Professor Fin- chum and History, with courses of- fered by Professors Dillon, Nutt and Webb. Also a part of this Area is the program entitled Health and Care Right: Dr. Allen conducts class in his typical " formal " setting. Administration, which involves stu- dents in a joint Business Administra- tion and Social Sciences curriculum and helps prepare them to work as managers with retirement centers, nursing homes, and hospitals. Many of our graduates are going on for graduate degrees; many oth- ers of our graduates are finding em- ployment in fields which they have prepared themselves. Please talk with Professor Hall if you have any questions about any of these disci- plines; I will encourage you to talk with specific faculty in this Area which will reult in more detailed in- formation. —Dr. Robert B.

Stevic Faculty 105 AREA OF Humane Learning The Area of Humane Learning is a central part of the liberal arts cur- riculum at Milligan. It includes the study of art, communications, the- atre arts, English foreign languages, humanities, music, and philosophy. All Milligan students are involved in courses that are part of Humane Learning, as they encounter the great minds and achievements of hu- manity while fulfilling requirements for a Milligan degree. Those who major or minor in one of these fields pursue a more thorough study as they prepare themselves for a wide u Photo by S. Ray range of careers, from teaching to law, to government service, to busi- ness. At the same time, they grapple with critical issues that graduates in all areas of service are likely to en- counter in a value-starved world. — Dr. Jack L.

For many fresh- man there were the remembrances of that not-so-long ago time when they marticulat- ed and officially entered the Milligan Col- lege family. For Seniors there was the ex- citement of graduation, only days away, to look forward to. This would be a time of leaving and of breaking away from their ties with Milligan. But for now, everyone was there in Seeger Chapel to honor those fellow students who had proven them- selves to be truly out-standing from the rest. In the foregin language department, three women swept the awards. Theresa Brown won the French award, Jana Burg- er, the Spanish award, and B.J. Harding, the German award. The most musical inclined in school, or at least in the Concert Choir was Rick Dunn. The Journalism awards went to Julie Pirkl, for her work as editor of the Buffalo, and to Rick Hessler, editor fo the Stam- pede. Science awards went to Lisa White, Most Outstanding Biology student, and El- len Harris, for her work as a freshman Chemistry student. Chris Cottrell was awarded the math- ematics award and Sharmila Das and Ben Wallace co-won the Geography award. Kristi Hammond was presented with the Delta Kappa Gamma award for her outstanding work as a student teacher. Other student teaching awards were given to Jon Parker and Chris Cottrell for their work in Secondary edu;ation, and Laura Lynn Hull Frazier and Lora Hays for their work in Elementary education. The English award was also co-won by Cathy Brown and Rick Hessler. Karin Gurley received the Humanities award, and Debbie Sams Poe was the recipient of the Sociology award. The Wall St. Journal award was won by Wilbur Reid. This year ' s Best Speaker award was earned by Jamie Smith and Wayne Tull. Curtis Brunn received the Fine Arts award and David Hubbart was the recipi- ent of the Church Growth award. Ron Kastens was awarded the Wiley Wilson Scholarship. Stacy Drogowski, our student Govern- ment president, won both the Leadership award, and the Ivor Jones Outstanding Senior award. Certificates of Recogniton awarded to those students who were involved in four or more theatrical productions w ere given to: Beth Bivins, Cathy Brown, Jonathan Chambers, Rick W. Hessler, Randy Landry, and Julie Pierce. More theatre recogniton was given to Randy Landry, for being a Kennedy Center National Act- ing Award nominee, and to Rick W. Hessler, for being accepted to the Nation- al Critics Institute. Last, but not least, nine Milligan seniors received the prestigious Who ' s Who award. They are Jennifer Baynes, Beth Bivins, Stacey Drogowski, Laura Lynn Hull Frazier, Darlene Kemplen, Lori Knick, Brian Nix, Wilbur Reid, and Amy Sampson. These fellow students went that extra mile during the years and their hard work payed off as their fellow students and friends recognized and applauded their success. — Mari Anne Bradley " You both did good!

Just who were we? We were many unique in- dividuals who lived, worked, studied and played together for the past four years. We shared each others lives and love. We developed friendships that will last a lifetime. Since that day in late Au- gust when we wandered around Lower Seeger mak- ing animal noises, we sur- vived many trials, with quite a few changes and matured substantially. We were the first class to see a brand new basketball coach every fall when we came back. We watched the building of the McMa- han Student Center, which we continued to irreverent- ly refer to as the SUB. We lived through the cafeter ia renovation and two types of food services. We watched the fieldhouse roof collapse (several times) and then drove to Happy Valley to see the basketball games until the hard roof could be put on. The Senior Class officers, Cindy Stuck, Chris Cottrell, Ed Walters, James Payne, Wendy Dillon, Jim Rice, Wilbur Reid, Mark Mad- den, and Amy Sampson, show that Coca-Cola is the choice of their generation. We said " Goodbye " to the Hospitality House and an- ticipated the loss of Par- dee. We survived with and without Deans and watched Mrs. Fontaine cover several jobs. We all breathed a sigh of relief when Ziggy (a.k.a. Mr. Dil- lon) finally received his Ph.d. We raised more mon- ey for the Jr.-Sr. banquet than any other class in Mil- ligan history. We had car washes, a slave auction, carnation sales, concession sales, and even a pie throw. We did such a wonderful job with the concession stand at the basketball games that we were asked to do it again the next year. M.A. Bradley f ENIOR Since we spent almost all our $3000 on the banquet our Junior year, we started from scratch again our Senior year to raise money for the Senior Trip to Gat- linburg. We raised over $1000 by having an all- campus bowling party, renting the drive-in, selling carnations, having car washes, and mostly by sell- ing concessions at the bas- ketball games. We had hardworking officers that worked together wonder- fully to help accomplish all of these things. They were: Chris Cottrell and Amy Sampson (female reps.), Jim Rice and Mark Mad- den (male reps.), Wendy Dillon (Treas.)

" These famous words symbolize a lifetime of love, sharing, and com- mittment, but for married Milligan students it also m eans hard work, study- ing, and no cafeteria food. Some students may have felt like Milligan had too many rules and restric- tions, but dating and mar- riage were never forbidden by the administration. In fact, the college boasted that, " Milligan was the place to find your mate! " Scott and Brenda Bell are two seniors who met, and married at Milligan. They felt that married life was a lot easier than they ' d been told it would be. They discovered that student aid and loans were easier to get and that they had more stability by being in school. They felt that always hav- ing somebody to share things with was one of the nicest parts of marriage. " You feel so much more complete. " observed Scott Bell. Michael and Cathy Crowell are students who also decided to get married before they graduated. For them marriage was a chance to always be to- gether. It also meant hav- ing their own place and a person they loved to come home to. The Crowell ' s also agreed that school was still a priority and that marriage improved their school work. In the days when divorce rates are high and couples are living together, these and other Milligan stu- dents have discovered that marriage, even for stu- dents, is still the wonderful union God meant it to be. You feel so much more complete. 99 Scott Bell Working together as a team, Scott and Brenda Bell serve Jeannine Loum in the SUB.

Yet none of the me- moribilia we collected was as lasting as a class ring. They came in many sizes and colors, and each one meant something different to each person. It signified the achievements of be- coming an alumnus of Mil- ligan College. It took four long years of hard work and sweat to reach the goal of graduation. But a class ring is not for everyone. Some people elect not to purchase one. Cost was probably the larg- est deterrent for students considering purchasing a class ring. Others discov- ered that after spending the money on a high school ring, they wore it for a short time and then it sat in a drawer for the rest of the time. Probably, more than anything, a class ring said, " I survived! " I am proud to be an alumnus of Milligan College, and the ring demonstrates this pride. 99 Catherine Brown Darren Goar and Cindy Stuck check out Cindy ' s 1988 class ring.

They were em- barking on their Senior trip and their one and only mis- sion was to have fun. And that, they did. Exploring and shopping the main strip of Gatlinburg was only the beginning. Swimming, sunning, hiking, watching movies, and eating were also on the agenda. They stayed at the Sidney James Motor Lodge where they were provided with balconies over- looking a scenic stream and a small banquet room for din- ner Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Reid, Jr. provided the delicious meal. A special " highlight " was the chance to dress up and have an Old Time Portrait taken of all of the seniors. They gathered at a nearby park for a private worship service on Sunday morning. Amy Sampson led songs and Ron Blackmore offered a de- votion before serving commu- nion. Dr. David Burnette, a medical doctor and part-time professor at Johnson Bible College presented an inspir- ing sermon. Fun, food, and fellowship combined to make this a weekend to remember long after graduation. = - R.

Senior Activities 127 Juniors Look Back by Eric Hayden Junior year seemed to be the year that we all did some looking back and some looking forward. We did a lot of comparing of our Junior year to our Freshman and sophomore years. We noticed that: . . . freshman year was just a fading dream. . . . you needed more sleep each year. . . . the word " occupation " took on a whole new mean- ing. . . . engaged students seemed to gain serious weight. . . . books seemed to get heavier, and eight o ' clock classes earlier. ... no longer did you know, or wish to know everyone on campus. The Junior class officers, Steve Salmon, Susie Householder, Eric Hayden, Libby Davenport, Chris Jefferson, Michelle Miller, Beth Wolfe, and Cathy Crowell, gather to sing for their supper. . . . best friends had be- come best friends with a member of the opposite sex. . . . Richard A ' s was not so attractive once you turned twenty one. . . . freshman seemed so immature; sophomores seemed so stuck-up; and we know we weren ' t that way! . . . somethings never changed, like convo and seniors looking for a spouse. . . . guys and girls got better looking the longer we were at Milligan. . . . our parents, after all, were right. Even though many JUNIOR things had changed since we were freshman. We still had our friends and re- membrances of the good times we ' d had in the past. Also, ahead of us was the chance to make new friends and new memories in our final college year. The Junior Class officers for 1987-88 were: Eric Hayden — President Susie Householder Troy Hammond — Vice-Presi- dent Cathy Crowell — Treasurer Michelle Miller — Female Rep. Beth Wolfe — Female Rep. Steve Salmon — Male Rep. Chris Jefferson — Male Rep.

They came from countries like India, Ja- maica, and Korea. John Kim, a freshman from Ko- rea has lived in America since August, 1987. He was born in Saigon and lived there for five years. Kim then moved to Iran for five years and then lived in Ko- rea for the next five years. He ' s interested in Interna- tional Relations because he likes to help people. Kim enjoys more freedom in the U.S. John Kim says of col- lege life, " Since my back- ground is not American it ' s tough, but I ' m hanging in there. I ' m glad I came to Milligan. " Sharmila Das, a sopho- more from India, has lived in America for a year. Das ' interests are in Public Re- lataions or Marketing. In- terestingly, Das expected the U.S. to be very wild. She says that it is not as fast-paced as she imag- ined. Das has found the people to be as friendly as people of India. She has made friends easily at Mil- ligan. Tim Getter, a junior, is also from India. He ' s lived in the U.S. for two years. His goals include working in missions and third world development. Getter has observed that most every- thing about India is differ- ent from America. India is a country of extremes. Peo- ple are either rich or poor. " There are no subtlties in India, " he says. Tim Getter comments about life, ' I would like to see people have a much more open view to the rest of the world. In general, I have noticed that people in the U.S. have a very closed mind when it comes to something foreign to them. My hope is to be as accept- ing and open to other peo- Since my background is not American it is tough, but I ' m hanging in there. I ' m glad I came to Milli- gan. 99 John Kim pie as possible. As Gandi has said, ' I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed, I want the cul- ture of all lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. ' " Gan- dhi and Getter ' s state- ments appropriately de- scribe the friendships be- tween students from foreign countries with stu- dents from the U.S. Ernest Natera and Lisa Hertzog enjoy a little free time during lunch. Natera, a newly naturalized United States citizen, was originally from the Dominican Re- public. 130 Juniors Sally Miller Chip Mehaffey Darin Miller Michele Miller Darren Mitchell Sam Moser Robert Mullen Tanya Mullings Mikhail Murray Robert Oaks Cindy O ' Hare Celeste Olmstead Marty Osborn Tim Paige Robbie Phillips Christy Pippin Greg Poor Kelly Rexroat C.

Like many other college stu- dents around the country you probably spelled it SPRING BREAK! And like Spring Break for college students around the country, Spring Break ' 88 proved to be quite exciting for many Milligan stu- dents. Students glowed with the relief of a break from homework and exams. Some students visited their friend ' s houses while others were con- tent to sack out at their own place. Kimberly Keeton just re- cently moved from Louisville, KY. to Laconia, IN. During break, on her farm, Kim rode horses, spent time with her boyfriend Derrick, and drove a ' 63 Chevy for the first time. She found the most eggs on Easter in an Easter egg hunt and won enviable prizes like wrenches and anchor bolts. When asked about how she liked her new home, Keeton replied, " I moved to Hickville, but I ' m O.K. " Tim Getter, like many Milli- gan students, traveled to Flor- ida for Spring Break. He drove 2000 miles with Craig Augenstein, Keith Teidtke, and Darien Taylor, to the Florida Keys. They slept on the beach and survived a windy rainstorm with no shel- ter. Getter was less than both- ered and quickly fell back asleep, while Craig and Keith sought the shelter of Getter ' s car. Getter expressed his opinion of airboating in the Ev- erglades by asserting, " We were somewhat bored with the fat alligators. " Sanjay Dharmapal contrib- uted his services to the Moun- tain Mission School in Grundy, VA., a small coal mining town. When asked about MMS, Dharmapal answered, " It ' s the most modern building in the town with the Christian education being excellent. " Dharmapal helped with the school ' s spring cleaning by painting and cutting the tops off of barrels to be used as painting and cutting the tops off of barrels to be used as trashcans. Many students such as Kim- berly, Tim and Sanjay en- joyed Spring Break regard- less of how they chose to use their break time or where they traveled. Kathy Gable and Craig Harper take a moonlit walk on Indian Rocks Beach in Florida. 132 Juniors Amy Snyder Lola Snyder Lisa Spears Beth Spencer Tim Taft David Teel Scott Thompson Keith Tiedtke Kevin Truesdell Becky Wagner Rick Williams John Williams A highlight of any Spring Break is the annual Downs ' Cook-Out.

Two down and two to go, the thought is dwin- dling fast. The realization of college was really to have a good time.

A transfer student of course. Transfers, as we commonly refered to them, were those students who began their " Milligan experience " after attending another school for a short time. Reasons vary for this change in schools. Some, like Debbie Jackson, came for a specific major that was not offered at her pre- vious school. Bob Skebo wanted " the opportunity to play on a championship baseball team. " And others transferred to Milligan to be with loved ones, like Darren Bratcher who came because. " Laura was here. " There were obvious dis- advantages to being a transfer. Said Kathy Fox, " everyone thought you were a freshman! " And since others already seemed to know each oth- er, it was even harder to start over. Transfers were stuck in the middle — not freshman and not yet rec- ognized upper-classmen. But there was a place for them. Milligan sought to accept these new students and incorporate them into the family. The " tie that binds " was strengthed with these new people and their new ideas. Melanie The encouragement and love that is received through my friendships at Milligan made the transfer here one of my best moves. Tracey Booth Downs wanted, " . . . a col- lege that would challenge me to do something for it — to become a leader in some capacity, and a place to be myself, and at Milligan, she found it. Transfers from Montreat Anderson, Neil Adams and Joel McDaniel, know there is more than one way to skin a cat. Hope Lang Karen Langdon James LeDuc Ron Lee Trey Lieberman Jeaninne Loum £1 : © £ .

This is what every new student sees when they walk in their dorm room for the first time. Sounds a little like a prison doesn ' t it? But very soon a transformation takes place and this bare room be- comes home. Or at least home away from home. The smell of paint usually permeates the dorm for a week as students paint over that nasty pink or green color to something more to their own tastes. Posters are one of the most popular forms of decorations. In the men ' s dorms, posters tend to run toward sports stars like Michael Jordan, and Larry Bird, to cars like Porsches and Corvettes to girls like Samantha Fox and Heather Locklear. In the girl ' s dorm posters of teddy bears, foreign countries and men are most common. Adding extra furniture also helps change the monotony of a dorm room. Lofts, rugs, couches, and chairs make the room less institutional and more like home. But the best room decora- tion of all is people. Nothing makes the room cheerier than friends. With friends you can paint the walls with laughter and lay down a rug of good memories. And it ' s friends that help make four walls, one door, one window, two beds and two desks, not just a dorm room, but a home. Robin O ' Neill relaxes in her bean bag surrounded by stuffed animals.

I ' m positive we ' ve all had our ups and downs, but with the love, help and support of family and friends, we made it. I know that personally if it hadn ' t been for such dy- namic and outstanding friends like: Suzi Gardner, Kristine Duhon, and Laura A. Bryan, life would have been extremely boring. Thanks guys for your sup- port and " attitude " . I would like to thank Amy Bower, Cameron Blackwell, Amy VanDe- Lune, Bo Whiteside, Char- lie Miller, Shanda Bal- lenger, and Keri Duncan for their help and support. Those Luaus will never be the same without us. Last but not least I would like to thank the en- tire Freshmen class for be- ing such a great class to work for. Let us all remem- ber to always serve God by serving others. May God always bless and be with you. See ya next year.

The main ob- jective of the course was to help each student develop and maintain a lifestyle of wellness. This lifestyle in- volved not only the phys- ical aspect of fitness, but also the mental, and spiri- tual aspects. Fitness for Life required each student to be tested on a physical level. The in- structor tested each stu- dent ' s degree of flexibility, body fat, body composi- tion, and muscular endur- ance. A twelve minute run was also timed. After the tests were completed and all of the data recorded, the information was plugged into a computer programmed for the well- ness program. In return, the computer analyzed the data of each tested individ- ual and prescribed exercise programs beneficial for each student. With these exercise prescriptions, the student was offered a vari- ety of conditioning exer- cises to follow three times a week. Then, at the end of the semester, each student was retested to see how much he improved. The Fitness for Life course helped students to grow in their knowledge, I must say .

More importantly, it chal- lenged each individual to maintain a wellness lifes- tyle which brought glory to God. Freshman, Charlie Miller, gets " Fit for Life " by taking the aerobics class offered in the gym three times a week.

Students sketched pictures, wrote poetry, and played musical instruments. Ca- meron Blackwell confidently presented two pencil sketch- ings. One was an old barn in a field, surrounded by a fence. Amy Vande Lune made a ba- tik wall hanging. This is made by applying wax and ink to create interesting patterns. Mike McNeil and Scott Kent wrote a play based upon Hu- manities teachers like Mr. Helgrader and Mr. Know-it- All. Andrea Smith painted the Creation of Adam and Eve with water colors. Nancy Bowen sketched beautifully colored pictures of places around campus. Students were expected to spend up to sixteen hours on their pro- M. A.

We enjoy the support of many businesses and orga- nizations throughout the surrounding Tri-Cities area. In re- turn, Milligan students patronize quite a few of these same businesses. From the late night runs to Burger King to diamond solitaire engagement rings at Zales, the mutually profitable relationship between Milligan students and the area merchants has enabled the 1988 BUFFALO to be one of the best yearbooks in Milligan history.

What do all of these have in common? They ' re all institu- tions of Milligan College that have been around since long before any of us. But one of these institutions has served Milligan College faithfully for thirty-seven years. He ' s the man seen: driving around campus in the green truck, at home basketball games di- recting the equipment, ticket sellers, referees and the other team to their respective places, and instructing clumsy college students on the proper way to shoot an arrow or play badmin- ton. If you haven ' t guessed it by now, this man is Coach Duard Walker, af- fectionately known as " Coach. " Coach Walker, a Piney Flats, TN native, attended Milligan College in the late 40 ' s. His senior year, Milligan was turned over to the Navy for their V-12 program (an officer training pro- gram). Coach Walker went through this program and served in the Navy for over three years. While he was a student here at Mil- ligan, he played football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and ran track. Not only did he participate in all of these sports, but he also lettered in every single one of them. He also lettered in baseball at ETSU where he attended his freshman year. Coach Walker returned to Milligan in 1951, this time to become a profes- sor of Health and Physical Education. He ' s also served as Athletic Director since that time, except for a short time when he served as Dean of Men. Since Coach Walker returned in 1951, he has coached basketball, base- ball, tennis, cross country, and track. During the period of 1951-1958, he was the only coach Milligan had. He is still presently the tennis coach. He and his wife Carolyn, whom he met while attending Milligan, have been married forty-one years. They have raised five children, all of whom grduated from Milligan, and now have eight grandchildren. They are pres- ently head residents of Webb, but pri- or to the building of Webb in 1960, they were Pardee head residents. Coach Walker is also Chairman of the Board and a trustee at Hopwood. Coach enjoys playing tennis and badminton in his spare time. Also the love of his life (besides his family) is his horse, Hero, a registered Tennes- see Walker. Coach Duard Walker has been a vital part of Milligan College for many years. He has served the college unselfishly and with caring and com- passion for thirty seven years. It is for this reason that we respectfully, and with a lot of love, dedicate the 1987-88 edition of the Buffalo, to Coach Duard Walker. Coach Walker has helped many stu- dents, and some of their parents learn the proper way to play tennis. Not only does he teach tennis, but he also teaches archery and badminton, golf, racquetball, snow skiing and horseback riding. 162 Dedication " He always seems concerned about ev- eryone on the team, not just the number one player. He ' s more like a friend than a coach. " Darin Wolfe " His sincere concern for the students coupled with his ex- pertise in so many activities and sports, had earned for him the title " Coach. " His involvement in the heart of Milligan runs deep and reaches back through the years, and will be felt for many years to come. Linda King 3 % Coach Walker not only teaches and coaches tennis but he also loves to play it in his spare time. In 1971, Coach Walker spoke at the ground breaking for the new Steve Lacy Fieldhouse. R E M E M B R A N C E L ■ k V: 4X% Dr. Dean Everest Walker The beautiful story of Queen Esther in the Old Testament came at a critical time for God ' s people. Their one hope seemed to lie in the new queen who was of He- brew origin. Her cousin Mordecai said to her, " Who knoweth wheth- er thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? " Dr. Dean Everest Walker came to the presidency of Milligan College during a time of its crisis. Some even questioned the con- tinuance of the school. His courage, insight, and dedication to Christian higher educa- tion have enabled Mil- ligan to fulfill its mis- sion in subsequent years. No one has done more to chart its course in recent history. There can be no doubt but what Dr. Walker ' s coming to Milligan was the provi- dential plan of God. — Marshall J. Leggett Mrs. Natalie Stoughton As secretary to Ms. Fontaine, Natalie Stoughton was a wel- comed part of the Milli- gan family. Those who knew her well decribed her as a Godly woman who was willing to make any sacrifice for her children, and who always put others first. Whether you knew her well or just knew her face, you could always count on a smile, her most precious gift. — Libby Davenport s LWici tion lOO Hoid S onle 6 ' Dedication 1988 Yearbook Staff Photo by M. Bradley It all started in August 1987, when at a yearbook camp, our theme was created — ' The Ties that Bind. ' The reason was simple, we wanted a theme that was uniquely Milligan because here the family-like atmosphere truly sets our college apart. The ties that bind this family together are the love we have for Christ and the love we have for each other. Throughout this pas t year, the staff worked many long hours to make this book special for all who read it. But we didn ' t do it alone — many other people gave their time and efforts to help put this book together. I ' d like to thank my staff for always giving their best; Dr. Magness, our ad- visor, who was always helpful; and many other professors and students who wrote articles, took pictures, helped with captions, and gave encour- agement. Because of all your combined efforts, this book is better than ever. Helping others is a very important part of Milligan ' s curriculum and the close friendships made here are ex- tremely special. Whether you are in your first year at Milligan, your last, or somewhere in between; I hope you too realize the uniqueness of this college and the Supreme love which will bind us together forever. — Julie Pirkl, Editor 1988 BUFFALO Photo by S.

As the trees come back into bloom to welcome the springtime, they also say good-bye to another year of accomplishments. For those Freshmen, the feeling is " Whew!

" For each of their differences, howev- er, all four groups share the feeling summed up in the word " bond. " Three ' shades ' of summer. Steve Ray catches Barb Wood off guard.
