BPC’s Annual Fund Exceeds Chairman’s Challenge

Gary Campbell, chairman of the 2006 Brewton-Parker College Annual Fund, issued a challenge to his committee. He believed the committee, the BPC faculty and staff, and the surrounding communities could exceed the established goal of $150,000 and raise $200,000.

Not only was the challenge met, it was exceeded. The final amount raised totaled $205,250.

“I am extremely gratified with this year’s campaign,” said Campbell. “Our committee and the staff did an excellent job as evidenced by the final figure.”

Campbell said that through the committee’s efforts, more people are learning of the significance of having a four-year Christian college in this area.

“We also made great progress in ‘telling the good news’ about the importance of Brewton-Parker College to our community, and of the fine work it does to educate our youth with an unapologetically Christian focus,” said Campbell.

Pamela Davis, Brewton-Parker’s Vice-President for Advancement, is grateful to all who had a part in exceeding Campbell’s challenge goal.

“Exceeding not only our established goal, but also the challenge goal set forth by Gary Campbell is a testament not only to the hard work of all committee members, but also to those who contributed to the Annual Fund,” said Davis. “When everyone is focused on a common goal and comes together in support of that common goal, lives are impacted. Not only the lives of our students, but also the lives of those who live in this area.”

Both Davis and Campbell are appreciative of Claire Johnson, the Director of the Annual Fund, for her leadership in this year’s campaign.

“Claire Johnson is a vital part of our team on campus,” said Davis. “She made a tremendous contribution to the overall success of the campaign through her tireless efforts of working with the members of the Annual Fund Committee as well as those on campus.”

“I greatly appreciate the efforts of all involved and want to especially thank and recognize Claire Johnson for her diligence in organizing and promoting the Annual Fund,” said Campbell.

Other members of the community who served on the Annual Fund Committee were Mr. Brian Bishop, Mr. Brandon Braddy, Mr. Steve Brown, Mrs. Dale Clark, Mr. Charles Clements, Mr. Steve Dingler, Mr. Wendell Dixon, Mr. Joey Fountain, Mr. Brian Frost, Mr. Keith Hamilton, Mr. Howard Holman, Mr. Rick Jordan, Mrs. Sheri Keene, Mr. Harry Moses, Mr. Hugh Peterson III, Mr. Tim Ritchie, Mr. Colon Sammons, Mrs. Rubie Nell Sanders, Dr. Nancy Stanley, Mrs. Marsha Temples, and Mr. Tim Truxel.

Those representing Brewton-Parker College were Mr. James Bell, Mrs. Deborah Conner, Mrs. Sherra Durden, Dr. Glen Eernisse, Mr. Bill Glass, Dr. Sid Johnson, Mrs. Juanita Kissell, Mrs. Rosalie Selph, Mrs. Beth Taylor, and Ms. Paula Whitaker.

To commemorate the historic occasion, Brewton-Parker College hosted a “Celebration Picnic” May 30 for all who contributed to this year’s Annual Fund in the Snooks Student Activities Center.
