inding the right Word to describe the
1987-88 year at Mount Olive College is
a difficult task. This Word must capture the
feeling of the first Homecoming and the
crowning of Debra Whiteley as the first
Homecoming queen. It must have the emo-
tion of the soccer teamis first victory. This
word captures the friendships between
students, faculty, and staff. It expresses
the excitement of Mount Olive's first snow
of 1988, and the cancellation of classes.

While the military personnel are
practicing defensive maneuvers,
there are many scholastic maneu-

Johnson Air Force Base is the
home of a part of Mount Olive
College. The College has been on
the base as an extension since
1976 and in 1983 become its own
school. The degrees offered on
base vary in number, but are the
same those offered on campus.
Mr. Donald Leacott is the direc-
tor of the MOC program, and
Laura Riding is the secretary. The
academic year is divided into five
sections: Fall I and II, Spring I
and Il, and Summer. Each session
continues for nine weeks. The en-
rollment has steadily increased
since the extension's founding.
Presently there are almost 450
students who attend MOC on the
base. The Mount Olive College

The air is fresh and warm. The sky is blue, and the grass-
is green. The trees are budding. and the flowers are in
bloom. The time of the year is spring, and with this
season comes many memorable events: shopping for
summer clothes. trips to the beach, and outdoor life in
general. Springtime at Mount Olive College does not go
unrecognized. The annual "Spring Formal" is always an
exciting event and is considered the social gathering of
the year. Walnut Creek Country Club in Goldsboro pro-
vided the perfect setting for the dance of all dances. The
tables were set. the food prepared, and music filled the
air as everyone arrived at the site. "The Boomersfl based
in Charlotte. N.C. performed a variety of pop tunes that
were enjoyed by all. The Spring Formal always brings
out the newest fashions in formal wear. Whether the .
dresses were long or short and the tuxedos black or gray,
all the students outdid themselves in appearance.The r 4 V- 'W
students were served a variety of soft drinks and, a buffet " XA. , '

time of new experiences and
friends. Returning Mount Olive
students see old friends and dis-
cover changes that have occured
during the break. Before everyone
has unpacked and settled in, it is
time for registration. the dreaded
event. Some lucky people can go
through with no problems. but
others must wait in very long
lines. After registration is over,
the semester begins with a dance
held in front of the womens com-

Living on campus at MOC can have its mo-
ments. Whether you're trying to share a
little space or just having a midnight chat,
roommates and dorm mates can make all
the difference in a person's college stay.
Popular among residents are late night
trips to Friendly Mart for hot dogs, Krispy
Kreme for donuts, and Farm Fresh for al-
most anything imaginable. Others crash in
the lobby for late night television or study
sessions. Shaving cream fights, although a
little slippery, and mischievious pranks
frequently arise when boredom or spring
fever set in. Parties for all occasions, shar-

ing a telephone and a bathroom, popping
popcorn, and taking an afternoon nap are
commonplace to residents. The apart-
ments provide a unique living situation,
where four roommates share quarters.
Apartment residents enjoyed lying in the
sun on the roof and playing football in the
courtyard. Grilld and barbecues began to
emerge in the spring to provide some vari-
ety and a touch of home.
Residence life enhances the campus life of
the student and adds many memories for

O DEGREES A
The 1988 Commencement. began at
Mount Olive College on May 1, in a wor-
ship service in Rodgers Chapel, where
N Dr. Alfred R. Wright, pastor of Adams-
'ville Baptist Church, Goldsboro, deliv-
ered the Commencement sermon. Dr.
Wright gave a meaningful sermon, re-
minding the graduates that they must
first choose a Master, next a mate, and
finally a mission.
Graduation day at Mount Olive dawned
sunny and bright, while approximately
150 graduates waited anxiously to walk
across the stage in College Hall in their
own moment of recognition. The Mount
Olive College Singers provided a beauti-
ful selection, "My Lord is Like A Shep-
herd," followed by the Commencement
address by Harlan E. Boyles, Treasurer
of the state of North Carolina. In his ad-
dress, the Honorable Boyles offered con-
gratulations, encouragement, and chal-
lenge to the class of 1988. He urged the
graduates to look not only to the future,
but to the past and the valuable lessons
drawn from past experiences. Stating
that "human progress is only possible if
we look back and move on," Mr. Boyles
challenged the graduates to move ahead
with future endeavors, not forgetting the
past that has shaped them, and main-
taining an attitude of learning. He
stressed that no educational experience
is ever complete. He ended his address
with a salute to the class, and he chal-
lenged them to work to make the future a
better and brighter one for all of us.
Dr. Jeanes, President Raper, and James
B. Hunt, Chairman of the Board of
Trustees, then awarded diplomas to 150
graduates, many of whom received high
honor and highest honor recognition.
The award to the four year graduate who
earned the highest GPA, the Martin
Award, was given to Beverly S. Bryant.
Dr. Raper presented for the first time
the special Distinguished Friend of the
College Award to Mr. Byron E. Bryan. A
friend of the college for 35 years, he was
cited for his help, guidance, and support
since the college's beginning. Recogniz-
ing yet another outstanding graduate,
the Reverend Frank Harrison, on behalf
of the college faculty, presented an Aca-
demic Achievement Award to Mr. Ray-
mond Buie, Jr. Explaining Mr. Buie's
situation as a husband, father, pastor,
and commuting student, Rev. Harrison
detailed the difficulties faced by the stu-
dent. Mr. Buie overcame difficult odds
and maintained a dedication to learning
in pursuit of his education as a minister.
The exercises ended appropriately as Dr.
Raper reminded the graduates, "You
will soon be gone from this place, but you
will never be gone from our hearts."

Then the shadowy North was replaced by an
irresistible new character: Ollie, the All-Ameri-
can boy with a gap-toothed grin. It was instant
coast-to-coast stardom. Was North really the
"national hero" that President Reagan had pro-
claimed him to be. He was tough, sure, patriot-
ic, and a doer rather than a thinker-a type
Americans generally admire.

When you think of college stu-
dents and college life, many
things come to mind. The obvi-
ous ones being classes, study-
ing, basketball, games, and
other things that are associat-
ed with the academic and ath-
letic programs. But there is
also the flip side of the college
student, and that is the food,
the fashion, and the fads. The
students at Mount Olive Col-
lege this year were into
sweats, dirty bucks, acid-
washed jeans, and sneakers.
While adorned in the latest
fashions, they made midnight
trips to the Friendly Mart for
hot dogs and the Pancake
House for hot meals after the
cafeteria had closed. Smitty's
and Dub's were also frequent-
ed by young people after hours.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
were also a weakness for
hungry students as they made
their way to the movies at
Eastgate and Litchfield Cine-
mas. The fashion, fad, and fast
food scene really made an im-
pact on the college scene.

COMMITMENT TO EXCELLE CE
ount Olive College be-
gan as Mount Allen Ju-
nior College at Crag-
mont Assembly on September 22,
1952. The College moved to
Mount Olive, North Carolina,
opening on September 9, 1954,
with 22 students. In September
1970, the school's name was
changed to Mount Olive College.
Under the leadership of Dr. W.
Burkette Raper, president since
1954, the junior college became, in
1985, a four-year degree-granting
institution, accredited by the
Commission on Colleges of the
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools. The first senior class
graduated in May 1986. In 1987-
88, the College enrolled over 1,000
students in its on- and off- cam-
pus programs. ln an interview
with members of THE OLIVE
LEAVES staff, Dr. Raper, who
will begin his thirty-fifth year as
President in September 1988,
said that he has chosen to remain
at Mount Olive College to help
the College reach its academic,
cultural, and physical goals. He
believes that his task is to see that
the College fulfills its Purpose of
educating students as "whole hu-
man beings" and improving their
quality of life."
Dr. Raperls commitment to ex-
cellence includes expansion of the
College physically and academi-
cally-additional degree pro-
grams, innovative curricula, ex-
tension programs serving a larger
region, a college union, a Fine
Arts facility, administrative of-
fices, library expansion, and addi-
tional student housing.
He emphasized that the College
will always focus on serving East-
ern North Carolina and its found-
ing church, the Free Will Baptist
denomination, but will offer its
services to students in surround-
ings states and always welcome
students of all religious faiths. Dr.
Raper said that the College will
respond to the specific needs of
the church and will seek to make
students of whatever faith feel
Dr. Raper and Mrs. Raper
i"Rose"l have committed their
lives to Mount Olive College.
They are actively involved in the

ulty, staff, and studentsg and

hether is was BSU pizza meetings, FWBF retreats,
PBL picnics, or traveling with the Singers, the best
part about it was just getting together. Organiza-
tions on campus this year were involved in a wide variety of
activities. The Science Club was busy with trips, expeditions,
and flower sales. The Recreation Club had an interesting
day clearing a path by the Neuse River and learned a great
deal at their fall convention in Winston-Salem. PBLattended
state and district conferences, and realized great success
through their annual fund raiser. The Free Will Baptist Fel-
lowship played an active role in the Religious life on campus,
sponsoring spiritual retreats, and holding weekly meetings.
The Baptist Students Union also played an active role, spon-
soring bake sales and pictures for special occasions. The
MOC Singers once again had a great year, their fifteenth, as
the college's primary public relation tool, traveling many
miles and performing beautifullly everywhere they ap-
peared. The Concert Choir worked hard and traveled long to
finish in top form at their annual Spring Concert. In its first
year the MOC English Society was actively involved in spon-
soring special events, lectures, fundraisers, and the publica-
tion of a literary magazine. The organizations on campus
offered something for everyone from fun times to serious
lectures and flower sales to museum expeditions. But the
best part of it all was JUST GETTING TOGETHER!

ALL THAT JAZZ
Singing and dancing for college credit was only
the beginning of the things the Mount Olive
Concert Choir did this year. The group joined
their voices with those of faculty, staff, stu-
dents. and community members to present the
"Messiah" in December, an annual highlight of
the Christmas season. During Spring Break
they toured various high schools, and later
Charleston, S. C. was the site of the annual
Spring Tour. Under the direction of Ms, Caro-
lyn Knox, Concert Choir gave an outstanding
performance at their Spring Concert. At every
place they performed, the Choir met much ap-
plause and good response.

after the 1987-88 volleyball
season. The team had not
played together very long,
but dispite a lack of exper-
ience, they pulled together,
showed good sportsmanship,
and had fun. The season's
highlight waswinning the
tournament hosted by Win-
gate College. Tronette

This Trojan baseballer gets a base hit Steve Hudson leaps to catch the ball for
during fall season. an out.
After a disappointing season last
year the Mount Olive sluggers were
back this year with solid hitting
and pitching along with speed.
They were back to prove that they
could play with the best. They did
just that with a fourth place finish
in District 26 of the NAIA.
The Trojans had strong leadership
from the only senior, Glenn War-
ren, who batted 350. Other players
helping the Trojans were Lee Pate,
Charlie Long, Charles Johnson,
and Steve Hudson, all batting at
least 319. Speed was another factor
in the team's success, as 119 bases
were stolen out of 135 attempts.
The young pitching staff contrib-
uted to the season. The combina-
tion of all the players helped this
year's baseball team make the dis-
trict playoffs. Although they were
not successful in their bid to make
regional play, the Trojans gave a
superb effort, well worth com-

Lorrie Franklin shows the power behind her swing as she hits the ball.
It all started the last week of
February. The temperature
began to rise, the equipment
was pulled from the store-
room, and 15 girls began pre-
paring to have the time of
their lives-softball season!
This very young team was ea-
ger an had high expectations.
Despite their tough season,
Coach Lamm said his girls
never gave up! Mount Olive
College is in the NAIA Dis-
trict 26 as an independent
and has been recently accept-
ed into the Carolina Intercol-
legiate Athletic Conference.
Now there are two additional
goals for which to strive: the
district playoffs and the con-
ference tournament. Jessica
Copeland was awarded Most
Valuable Player with a bat-
ting average of .496, five
home runs, and nineteen
RBI's. Melissa Ward was giv-
en the Coach's Award be-
cause of her ability and will-
ingness to play any position
on the field. Coach Lamm
has high hopes for the team
next year as most of the play-
ers will be returning along
with a few new recruits.

Intramural Volleyball gave many students a chance to demonstrate their hid-
den athletic ability.
Softball was one sport in which students and faculty enjoyed intense competetion. G 4 M Ei'
Intramural sports were a big
part of the students, activi-
ties this year. Volleyball,
softball, tennis, racquetball,
basketball, and ping pong
were offered by the intramu-
ral association under the di-
rection of Coach Randy
great, and the competition
was fierce. Weekly games
gave students a break from
classes, studies, and bore-
dom. The crowds offered en-
couragement and some heck-
ling. Each participant gained
a greater respect for the ath-
letes and the sport that they
played. Winners received a t-
shirt for their efforts and sat-
isfaction of being champs.
The Mount Olive golfers. led
by strong play trom Matt
Johnson and Joey Cagle and
the senior leadership of Kurt
Saylor. finished the season in
Iitth place in District 26. The
team was also helped with
good constant play from Jon
Johnson. Tim Hoyle. Andy

he school year 1987-88 repre-
sented a year that saw good
things and bad things occur. Al-
though we may remember both, the
many good things will come to our minds
when we turn through this book in years
to come. Success on the basketball court
and the baseball diamond, as well as ac-
ceptance into the Carolina Conference
strengthened our athletic program. Ad-
ditional courses and new professors al-
lowed the academic programs to grow.
The physical plant saw some improve-
ments with the addition of the Modular
Office Complex and plans for a new Col-
lege Union. Student Affairs saw the ad-
dition of new personnel and a central
location move to College Hall, as well as
enhanced programming and activities

ount Olive also celebrated the
MOC Singer's fifteenth anniver-
sary, the Pickle Classic cham-
pionship, and the first annual Homecom-
ing festivities. A welcome addition to
campus organizations was the English
Society, one of the most active groups on
campus this year. Enrollment reached a
record high in the fall, and graduation
saw more than 150 students receive de-
grees in the spring.
In the future Mount Olive College will be-
come even more successful and an even-
more special place, but in the hearts and
minds of those who attended in the fall or
the spring, and who graduated on May 7,

TYING LOOSE ENDS
I hope you have enjoyed the 1988
Olive Leave-5 as much as I have
enjoyed putting it together.
Tammy Frizzelle and Monica
Milliner. you both were jewels to
put up with the yearbook junk
thrown about the room and my
varying moods when things got
rough. Sheila Jo, thanks for com-
ing through in the end. Jerry
Spenser, you were a sweetie to
stay with Joni and me during our
all-nighters. Special thanks is to
you, RDL. for putting up with this
during your visits and for taking
me along on your dates.
Joni. my advisor, my "sister," and
my best friend, how can I say
thank you for everything you have
done, Without you being there to
help each step of the way, I can
honestly say that this yearbook
would not exist. You are a very
special person, about the only one
who could put up with my differ-
I hope some moment has been
captured in this book which will
rekindle a special time of this year
that to you is UNFORGETTA-
