"THE RIGHT LANE MUST TURN RIGHT"
MORRIS COLLEGE SUMTER. SOUTH CAROLINA
Dr. Luns C. Richardson PRESIDENT
THE FOUNDING OF MORRIS COLLEGE IN 1908 WAS NOT JUST A GLORIFIED DREAM BUT A BOLD. INGENIOUS VENTURE WHICH ITS LOYAL SUPPORTERS HAVE KEPT ALIVE FOR 80 YEARS.
DURING THE COURSE OF ITS HISTORY. THE CHALLENGES AND COMPLEXITIES WHICH GROWTH BROUGHT TESTED THE COLLEGE’S SURVIVAL. HOWEVER THIS FACT IS CLEARLY DIS-CERNABLE — THE CHALLENGES AND COMPLEXITIES WERE ALWAYS MET WITH EQUAL STRENGTH. ADDED VISION AND DEEP CONVICTION.
THUS. IN THE 80th YEAR OF ITS EXISTENCE. AS WE REFLECTED ON THE NOBLE HISTORY OF MORRIS COLLEGE. WE FELT A STRONGER TIE WITH THE PAST. WHICH ACCENTED THE PRESENT. AND INSPIRED US TO MOVE TOWARD EVEN GREATER TOMORROWS. THE loss YEARBOOK IS. 'THEREFORE, AN ATTEMPT TO LINK THE PRESENT WITH THE PAST THROUGH WORDS AND PICTURES. NOTWITHSTANDING WENDT’S WARNING THAT BOTH ... "art merely surrogates for reality, not reality itself."DEDICATION
MR. JAMES LEON MIOTT 1949-1987
MR. JAMES LEON MIOTT 1949-1987
The untimely passing of James Leon Miott on August 16, 1987, marked the conclusion of nine years of unparalled services to Morris College as instructor in Music and Director of the Morris College Chorale. Mr. Miott was highly respected for his dedication to his work, his thorough, well prepared lessons, and his matchless thirst for music.
He passed on to the Morris College Family a legacy of a lifelong thirst for learning, and undaunted commitment to excellence, a sincere love for and appreciation of people — especially students, a deep willingness to share fully his talents with others, and a firm example of practical Christian living.
The College family members who were privileged to know him will ever appreciate the stoutness of his heart, the richness of his soul and his love for music and for mankind.
"Death is not sad ... its a time for elation,
A joyous transition ... the soul's emigration Into a place where the soul's safe and free.
To he with God through eternity.
Helen S. RiceiDOWN MEMORY LANE
CHARLES VINCENT MCKNIGHT. JR.
In keeping with the motto of Morris College, “Enter to Learn: Depart to Serve.” Charles entered Morris College in the fall of 1987, and was rendering acceptable service to the college and community at the time of his untimely death shortly after completing his freshman year.
Charles service was evidenced by his academic achievement, his athletic prowess and teamwork on the college and community baseball teams, his efficient work as a United Postal Service employee and as a part-time painter.
A noted scholar, family’s joy and friend’s confident. Charles left us with the knowledge that it is not how long we live but how well we learn and serve.

Every person on the campus feels a deep sense of pride in Morris College. Hut the most important thing to me is the pride our students feel in their own accomplishments.
— I)r. Luns C. Richardson
Morris College provides a sound program of education in selected curricula areas grouped into six broad divisions: Business Administration. Education. General Studies. Humanities, Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Social Sciences. History and Pre-Law Studies.
The objectives of all curricula are to aid in developing the professional competence of students, and lay the foundation for basic preparation in a wider variety of career opportunities than a normal four-year concentration can encompass. Thus, the College must continuously revise and expand its academic-offerings to make them more relevant to the demands, problems and issues of contemporary trends. Due to the increased of new information in virtually all disciplines, this is. of course, a tremendously challenging task.
Among the specific changes during the 1987-88 Academic Year were: 1) the revision of the general education program to provide students with a more comprehensive approach in basic skills areas. 2) strategies to improve instruction, and 3) an increase in the internal and external demands of all units subsumed under Academic Affairs, and their overall productivity and effectiveness.
I)r. Mary A. Vereen-Gordon (Upper Left) was appointed Academic Dean in 1984. Since that time she has given leadership to successive efforts to upgrade the educational program of Morris College.
117THE NEW ACADEMIC DIVISION OF GENERAL STUDIES
Pictured is Mrs. Margaret Davis. Associate Professor and Chair. Introduced during the 1988 Fall Semester. the new division identifies and compensates for deficits in intellectual capacity and other aspects of cultural deprivation of entering freshmen, and directs them in ways that will improve their basic skills in reading, writing, speaking and thinking. The division also provides an Honors Program for students of high intellectual promise and aptitude.
Because the faculty of the division serves as the student's primary contact with the College, every effort is made to bring teacher and student closer together to circumvent experiences of previous years which impacted negatively upon learning.
Thus, the new division forms the core of the educational system at Morris College. The hope is that students will have a solid grounding in lower level courses. In this way, they can he introduced to wider areas of new knowledge and research in upper level courses. In the classroom scenes (R and L below and upper L opposite page) student interests and ideas flourish in lively and interesting discussions.In upper level courses as is true of those of the lower level, the combined talents of the instructors shape the character of the academic program. Mrs. Ruth Baker, (Lower L) Instructor of Sociology, assists her students in their assessment of humane institutions, customs and behavior which define man’s social relations. (Below) Students in comparative Government look at political systems, constitutional structures and processes of our government and that of other countries. Professor Evelyn Hall is the instructor. (Lower R) Dr. Idelia Proctor creates a conducive classroom atmosphere for students in Health Services Administration.It is no mystical fact that quality instruction is the key that unlocks the mind to spontaneous pleasures in learning — indeed a pearl of great value. Nowhere is this more apparent than when instructors convey ideas readily and precisely and students are motivated to invest the necessary time and mental energy to prepare themselves forwhat is to come. Teacher quality and student quality run hand-in-hand.
These candid shots by our photographer clearly illustrate this concept. Teacher and pupil "putting it all together." Unpretenious? Yes. but powerful. We consider this to be one of the hidden delights of education.THE NATIONAL PLAYERS

The very nature of the college experience makes it imperative to establish reasonable time and energy allocations between study, work, and leisure. On the pages which follow, our roving photographer has skillfully captured glimpses of these distinc-
Itive characteristics — each a timeless heritage, rich in variety, and strangely empowered to communicate its own message. For want of description we have chosen to call this kaleidoscopic-like section “POSES, PAUSES AND EXPRESSIONS.” It must also be pointed out that this section supports the growing I theory that photography is a “narrative art.”«HEALTH SCIENCE IN ACTION WEEK
