The two-day event featured breakout sessions and learning exhibitions in the areas of these two divisions. BPC welcomed college and university students, as well as professors, from institutions across the nation. Participants were treated to a luncheon where Dr. Marion Montgomery, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Georgia, was the special guest lecturer.


Following the luncheon, speakers interested in the subject of pedagogy, delivered a short lecture in the Briscoe Center. Featured speakers during this time were Aaron Clayton, a student of Binghamton University (N.Y.) and BPC’s own Jo-Ne Bourassa, who delivered a speech concerning the effect of television on student’s learning. The meeting of this association provided a chance to gain further insight and challenged it’s participants to think more deeply and intellectually. As well as having a professor contribute to the thoughtful discussions, BPC also welcomed several students and one alumnus to engage in the lecture series. BPC’s 2008 GPA Scholars were: Timothy Gore, a 2007 BPC graduate, Rachel Allen, Michael Bibb, Carla Guevara, and Max Owens.
