M E S S AG E F RO M THE CHAIRMAN
Board of T rustees
AS WE APPROACHED THE beginning of a new fiscal year, July 1,1999, it was with sadness and regret that the Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of President Robert F. Knott. That initial feeling of "Where do we go now?" disappeared when Tom Garland agreed to be interim president. Tom served in that capacity with distinction from July 1, 1999, until June 1, 2000, when Dr. Dolph Henry became the 26th president of Tusculum College. What could have been a difficult year turned into one of continued forward motion for the institution. Your Board of Trustees was supportive of all the actions that needed to be taken during the leadership transition. The Board acted promptly and unanimously during every regular or special board meeting. Within 48 hours of Dr. Knott's resignation, the Board of Trustees agreed to ask Tom Garland to be interim president. As Board Chair, I had no refusals to serve on the Presidential Search Committee. Trustees Scott Niswonger '87,Ted Heinz '68, Jim Durham '79 and I served on the search committee, along with nine others from faculty, staff and community. The search committee held nine meetings, culminating with the committee's unanimous recommendation to the Board of Trustees that Dr. Henry be sought as our next president. Following the October Board Meeting, the trustees held a special dinner to honor Bob and Brenda Knott for their ten years of dedicated service to the institution. Tom and Pat Garland were recognized at the May Board Meeting by being presented with a certificate of appreciation for Tom's service as interim president. John Mays,Vice President of External Relations, retired last September 1. It is difficult to find the words to adequately express our fond feelings for John and Nancy Mays. I consider them close personal friends. They certainly were friends of the college in the highest sense of the word. John is one of a kind who gave 110 percent every day of the week to Tusculum College. We are deeply indebted to him for the countless contributions he made to the institution.
We were very fortunate in March that no one was injured in two dormitory fires. The Charles Oliver Gray complex and Welty-Craig Hall are back in full operation this fall. The Board of Trustees approved a $115,000 capital expenditure to upgrade the fire alarm system in the campus buildings. With deep appreciation to Scott and Nickie Niswonger, we dedicated the new Niswonger Commons last October. Groundbreaking for the new sports complex was held in February. This facility will be the finest within hundreds of miles of Tusculum one of the finest in the country! During the fiscal year, we had four trustees leave the Board: Rev. Dr. Lewis Fowler, Knoxville,TN; Rev. Dr. Daniel Sanburg, Chattanooga,TN;Wayne Eichle '73, who moved to California; and we sorrow in the passing of Jim Tomai '44, who was a Life Trustee of the college. We welcomed three new trustees: Bill Edmonds '71, Morristown,TN; Miss Charlotte 0. Gray, Albany, NY, and Mrs. Elizabeth Gordowood '47, Bartlesville, OK. We thank those who have left the Board for their service to the institution and look forward to working with the new members. Thanks to the old friends and the new friends who contributed financially to the institution this past year. Your gifts enabled Tusculum to operate in the black for the 10th consecutive year. We have come a long way and we have a long journey still ahead of us. We recognize, and the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools (SACS) has reported to us, that we must improve our library, technology, science facilities, etc. All of these further improvements will require that we raise additional large sums of money if we are to take Tusculum College to the next higher level. Dr. Dolph Henry and his wife Judy are on board and are already planning to take the college to that higher level! The Board of Trustees is firmly convinced we have the right president to make it happen! Some of our alumni may feel: "Tusculum . . . out of my sight, out of my mind."That may be true for some of you, but you can never get Tusculum College out of your heart. I can assure you that Tusculum is in the heart of all the Trustees. So join us! Return to the campus and see the growth, relive the memories of days gone by, and help all of us by giving of your time, talent and material possessions.

V I E W F RO M MCCORMICK
AS WE LOOK BACK ON A successful year at Tusculum College, we are also looking forward. We have entered a fiveyear strategic planning process that challenges every part of this institution to develop a clear vision for Tusculum's future and a specific plan for turning that vision into reality.
From the perspective of this office, what is our vision of Tusculum College as it will be in the year 2005? First and foremost, it will be a recognized community of caring individuals who, with grace toward one another, collectively embody the spirit of the Tusculum College mission. It will be an institution that does not limit its life and influence to its campuses. The confines of our campuses will be as small as our imaginations and as large as our commitment to our communities. As Tusculum College reaches outward, our communities will view Tusculum as an important partner in bettering the lives of their citizens. Tusculum College graduates will possess qualities that distinguish them among graduates of other colleges and universities. They will be recognized for their knowledge and behavioral skills, which Tusculum will have helped them attain through a constant refinement of educational programs, based on broadly approved outcomes that can be consistently evaluated. Program enhancements will be guided by clear expectations of performance and college-wide assessment measures. Tusculum graduates also will be recognized for their commitment to public service that extends from the individual's family, church, or area civic arena into one's region, state, nation and world, unhampered by differences in culture and language. Tusculum College's faculty will be distinguished by their instructional innovation, the results of which will be seen in the knowledge and skills of our
graduates. This will be the norm, not the exception. The governance structure of the college will be recognized for its simplicity, effectiveness, and ability to serve two uniquely different schools. The college's flexible calendar formats will permit time-concentrated study in some disciplines and extended study opportunities in others. Tusculum's Greeneville classrooms will be used to their limits, with as many instructional activities taking place after lunch as before. Our new library, with an array of the latest resources and technology, will significantly enhance the learning and skills of our graduates. And our faculty will be provided opportunities for self-renewal and professional development to allow them to deal with the rigors of instructional innovation. Tusculum's Residential College will be distinguished by the continuance of traditions that are the hallmark of an institution in its third century. By 2005, all members of our college community will be able to take comfort in the high quality and stability of our programs. Our larger traditional enrollment will reflect a balanced, actively engaged student body that is likely to be seen at an athletic competition, cultural event, or community service function. These students will have been attracted to Tusculum by its programs, environment, and strong sense of community. Continuing programs will continually strengthened and
new programs created in fulfillment of Tusculum's mission, and in harmony with the College's unique characteristics. Our facilities and resources will be exploited by these programs to gain the maximum benefit. Students fortunate enough to be offered admission to Tusculum College will find their college experience to be the greatest of their lives, with support coming from faculty and staff in both their curricular and extracurricular activities. The Residential College will be financially self-sufficient. Professional Studies will continue to deliver quality degree programs and continuing education in and around East Tennessee, especially to educationally underserved areas, and a greater portion of the net resources generated by this innovative adult education system will be returned to it for the continued strengthening and marketing of its programs. Professional Studies, meanwhile, will have a suitable and permanent presence among Knoxville's higher education institutions. Achieving the vision outlined above can only occur through a bold planning process that links conceptual aspects of planning with the realities of budgeting, is inclusive and encourages the input of all the College's stakeholders, is based where possible on the attainment of measurable outcomes, enables existing campus committees to participate in a meaningful way, and recognizes the ultimate authority of the Board of Trustees to approve the College's plan. Let us go together into Tusculum's future as a community enriched by our heritage and motivated by our vision.
Dolphus E. Henry President, Tusculum College
Tusculum College is pleased to recognize friends who have established named endowment funds during the 1999-2000 fiscal year year. Endowment funds are perpetual.

In today's economy, estate planning is rapidly becoming a way for people of all ages to affect public policy through the institutions they love, while at the same time providing a secure retirement income that often outproduces other kinds of investments.
T H E H E R I TAG E C L U B
As has been mentioned in previous issues of Tusculumnus, the Heritage Club was established in 1993 to recognize the generosity of alumni and friends who have made an estate commitment to the college. This gift can range from a simple bequest to an income-producing gift such as a charitable gift annuity. These commitments, regardless of size or value, are an important source of support for the college. These gifts may ultimately increase the endowment at Tusculum College and provide scholarships to our ever-growing student body. Alumni who make a charitable gift to Tusculum College are providing students with the same opportunity that they were once offered as a result of the generosity of earlier alumni. Estate planning is the process of working to establish with an accountant, trust officer, life insurance agent, and/or other advisors an orderly and desirable arrangement for the disposition of your estate. Always remember that the primary objective of any estate plan is the fulfillment of your wishes regarding the security of your family and others whom you wish to benefit. Tax consequences, although secondary, are an important part of estate planning and are often directly related to the accomplishment of your primary goals. A well-drafted estate plan can provide benefits to you or your family and also make it possible for a substantial gift to be made to Tusculum College at a relatively low cost to you or your estate. Membership in the Heritage Club is extended to those who have notified Tusculum College of their estate intentions. Once notified we will contact you seeking permission to use your name in our publications. By allowing us to include your name you are helping us to promote this very meaningful way to remember Tusculum College. We will also work through any details concerning the intended use of your bequest. If you are in the process of creating an estate plan, we can help. If you are interested in including Tusculum in your estate we can provide information to you or your attorney pertaining to the college. We can help develop a plan for the use of the funds ranging from unrestricted use to the creation of an endowed scholarship. For more information about the Heritage Club or about including Tusculum College in your estate planning, please contact Frank Wheeler at (800) 729-0256 or [email protected] You can also use a charitable gift calculator, which is a new addition to our Web page. Once at the Tusculum web page (www.tusculum.edu) go to the alumni section and then planned giving. The gift calculator can be found there. During the past year we have had a large increase in the number of Heritage Club members. We would be honored to include you as member. Past, present, and especially future generations of Tusculum College students are thankful for your support. New Heritage Club Members Added in 1999-2000: Alumni Charles E.

MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI PRESIDENT
Hello,Tusculum Alums! As I pause to find words to update you, I linger on the fairy tale "Cinderella."There is a real-life story at Tusculum that is even better than Cinderella's. Once you see what is taking place at "Our College," you can really say this "caps the stack." (Excuse the hillbilly expression, but do you know its meaning? It was not included in the Tusculum curriculum back in our college days! It means, "This takes the cake!") Prior to 1989, many of you know,Tusculum College was experiencing difficult times.Thanks to our "Fairy Godmother" for bringing us a "coachman" who enjoyed tremendous success: Dr. Bob Knott. Under his able leadership, and with support from his capable wife, Brenda, Dr. Knott helped turn Tusculum College's saga into a real "fairy story," and more. His multiple plans led to a renaissance and laid a foundation for more and better days to come. So naturally, the resignation of Bob Knott was a sad time for all who knew the name Tusculum College. But guess what our "Fairy Godmother" did! She found another coachman! Thank you, kind one, for sending Dr. Dolphus E. Henry, who in such a short time has endeared himself to us and who will carry forward the Tusculum story, taking the college to even greater successes. Let us now thank God not only for Dr. Henry, but also for his wife, Judy, who is another real blessing. Mrs. Lipscombe,Tusculum's Home Economics professor in the 1930s-1940s, would challenge her class with the saying: "Behind every Great Man is a Great Woman," Judy has already proven that she is there, and able.The Greeneville area welcomes the Henrys as a part of its family. We would be remiss to not also acknowledge the able guidance of Sean Bride, director of alumni relations. And to those dedicated alums who have given so generously to their college, we will forever be grateful. Indeed, our future is exciting. Our challenge as alumni is to give our full support to our new leadership.We have something to say, and we must say it loud and strong. Tusculum College is ready for the new millennium. Each new day of our history proves the need for what Tusculum's Civic Arts program has to offer. Our command is to live with each other peacefully in an age of natural resource waste.Technology has added an abundant new dimension to our knowledge. We have no choice but to keep the good and delete the bad. Our history and faith in God will help us. My words alone cannot tell you all that is happening at Tusculum College. Only seeing can be believing.The "chariot" that is Tusculum College will not transform into a pumpkin. It is real! The new Sports Center with all it amenities is only one part of what is going on.There is no end in sight for fulfilling dreams. So, folks, put on your full armor and march to your Alma Mater.Welcome back and stand "'Neath oaks that so long have stood watching." Your foot will fit the glass slipper, just like Cinderella's. My blessings to each of you.

Niswonger on `living, learning, and returning'
On August 22, Tusculum College Trustee and Benefactor Scott Niswonger spoke on the campus to the athletes of Tusculum and others of theTusculum family and community during a special gathering sponsored by Tusculum's Athletics Department. Mr. Niswonger shared some of his views of life, business, community, academics, and athletics, and also revealed why he is such a strong supporter of Tusculum College. Following are excerpted highlights of the talk he presented that evening. -----------------Twenty years ago in this community we started a small business called Landair, with each of us investing $2000. Today that business has achieved annual sales of almost $400 million and an operating profit of $50 million. Since the companies are now publicly traded, the market capitalization, which means the share price of our stock multiplied by the number of shares, is just under $1 billion. Building a successful team or career is similar to building a successful business. It is made, not born. Socrates said, "Wealth does not bring about excellence; but excellence does bring about wealth and all other public and private blessings." For those of you who have come from larger cities and more developed areas you may be wondering if you have made the right decision in coming to Tusculum. Let me share with you a little history about this very special place called Greene County . . . This free country we enjoy today was made possible by brave people, not the faint of heart.When Andrew Johnson came to this community, he was about your age and could neither read nor write. But he learned . . . and (later became) the 17th President of the United States . . . Another person born in this community many years ago . . . and who ultimately gave his life for his country was a man by the name of Davy Crockett . . . Your choice to attend Tusculum puts you among those who live their lives with a passion for what they believe . . . Whatever career path you community and particularly to Tusculum College. I believe it is unfortunate that most people who have attained some degree of success and wealth wait until fairly late in their careers and lives to do any significant giving. The mission of Tusculum College, its Civic Arts program, and other disciplines involving practical wisdom need financial support to achieve their vision and growth.This simply could not wait . . . I am reminded of the saying,"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime." So it is with our new facilities . . .The learning, the fellowship, and the team building that take place on this campus and in these buildings strengthen us while making an enormous difScott Niswonger ference in the future of this community. choose, you will be proud of the eduLike Bill Gates -- only on a little cation you received at Tusculum . . . smaller scale -- I believe in bringing You can make the "big time" from the discipline of business to the art of where you are today. I am convinced giving: in practical terms, doing as the Pioneer football team will come much good as possible with groups from a season of 2-9 to achieve a already doing excellent work.Yes, like National Championship at some Tusculum . . . point in the future. As we enter this I would like each of you to reseason in the South Atlantic Conference, member this saying:"Learn, Earn, and Return." . . . An interesting old Chinese provI have been asked why erb to ponder: him in the fanny when he doesn't.And my players will all be winners." . . . When you think it's getting tough to deal with everything, let me give you a few thoughts to remember. Helen Keller, a blind and deaf woman, graduated with honors from Radcliff. Imagine that, deaf and blind graduating with honors. Try that one! Keller said, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all!" . . . Einstein was four years old before he could speak and seven before he could read. Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because he had "no good ideas." Wehrner Von Braun, the father of the American space program, failed ninth grade algebra. Abraham Lincoln entered the Blackhawk War as a captain and came out a private. Winston Churchill failed the sixth grade. Churchill is one of my favorites. Remember your history! In the Battle of Br itain, the Messerschmitts lit the sky like fireflies. The British Spitfires were outnumbered 10 to 1, but the British won! They didn't know they could be defeated. But while London was being pulverized by the Ger mans, Churchill would appear in public and encourage the British people to persevere. One of his most famous quotes: "Never, never, never give up!" . . . In closing, let me quote Dr. Ing Porche, Chairman of Porche Motor Company. Dr. Porche said, "Life is a race, marked by a start and a finish. It's what we learn during the race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has particular value. If we learn from each success and each failure, and improve ourselves through this process, then we will have fulfilled our potential and performed well!" As you start this year at Tusculum, be prepared to adapt and change. Be willing to risk, and be eager to dream. Academically and athletically, let's have a GREAT season, and fun doing it!
That's what we do at Tusculum. Through teamwork, we plant people . . . Coach Bear Bryant made a comment on sportsmanship which we may lose sight of from time to time. Bryant said, "When you knock the man down, extend your hand to help him up.". . . Your professors and coaches believe . . . in the mission of Tusculum College . . . And they will be here for you. That's the difference. It's family. It's community. Bear Bryant also commented on life and success on the field of comthe difficulties and struggles we face petition:"Give me that ordinary perwill bring us to a higher level and son, not a superstar. Give me that ordinary person who will work to we will get better every year. I have been asked why I give so achieve our goals. I'll pat him on the heavily in monetary donations to our back when does well and I'll kick
I give so heavily in monetary donations to our community and particularly to Tusculum College. . . .The mission of Tusculum College, its Civic Arts program, and other disciplines involving practical wisdom need financial support to achieve their vision and growth.This simply could not wait.
If your vision is for a year, plant wheat. If your vision is for ten years, plant trees. If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people.
An exciting work in progress slowly transforms the landscape ... and the world of Pioneer athletics ...

Paul Czerniak's prowess drawing attention
Plaudits have been plentiful this He was named South Atlantic season for Tusculum College's Paul Conference Player of the Week twice, Czerniak. becoming the first Tusculum football player to earn the award. Czerniak, a junior from Syracuse, N.Y., set a new school record, averaging 50.2 yards on five punts, in a 23-17 loss to Arkansas-Monticello, including a 64-yarder, the second longest punt in Pioneer history. He pinned the Boll Weevils inside their own 20-yard line on four occasions and inside the 10-yard line twice. He booted a pair of PAT's and kicked a 49-yard field goal. He followed that with another fine performance by recording three school single-game records and booted four field goals, including a school-record 52-yarder in Tusculum's 26-0 victory over Livingstone College. He accounted Czerniak for 14 of the Pioneers' 26 points, while also averaging 41.7 yards per punt Czer niak was named on his three attempts, including a 48USAFOOTBALL.COM. Division yarder.

Achievements piling up for Pioneers
TC Athletes pull in early season honors
By the time Tusculum College was only three weeks into the fall sports seasons, TC had already quadrupled the number of South Atlantic Conference Players of the Week. In 1999, only Kelsa Eschmann of the women's soccer team earned the prestigious award. Tusculum has boasted four and is likely to add to that tally as the season's progress. Paul Czerniak of the football team and Matt Orchard-Lisle of the TC men's soccer team have earned the award in their respective sports in consecutive weeks. Czerniak, a junior from Syracuse, N.Y. has kicked his way into the record books and led Tusculum to wins in three of the first four games of the 2000 season. Orchard-Lisle, a junior forward from London, England, recorded goals in four straight matches, in-
Orchard-Lisle cluding a three-goal hat trick in the Pioneers 6-1 win at Catawba College in their league opener. The Tusculum women's soccer squad has boasted two different hon-
Barron orees for league Player of the Week recognition. Freshman Rachel Barron won it the first week by scoring six goals and three assists in three wins for the
Galvin Pioneers. Junior Robyn Galvin added her two-goal performance in TC's 32 victory over defending South Atlantic Conference champions Presbyterian College.
Moorhouse joinsTusculum as head athletic trainer
A new face at Tusculum College, but not a stranger in the Greene County community, is new head athletic trainer Craig Moorhouse. Moorhouse joins the Pioneer family after serving the last three years as Head Athletic Trainer at Greeneville High School. He replaces Jane Steinberg, who resigned her position at Tusculum to accept a teaching post at Carson-Newman College. Moorhouse will be responsible for providing medical coverage, recognition and treatment of injuries, and rehabilitation for all 14 intercollegiate teams and more than 300 studentathletes at Tusculum. "We are delighted to have Craig join our staff," said Hoffmeyer. "He comes highly recommended by the medical community in Greene County, as well as area athletic trainers who have known Craig thorough their professional associations and academic relationships. Being a local resident should serve him well as he begins his career at Tusculum. It is always nice to find a qualified candidate right in your backyard." Moorhouse is certified by the National Athletic Trainers Association (N.A.T.A.) and is a Tennessee State Licensed Athletic Trainer. He is also certified in the following: American Red Cross CPR, First Aid Certified, American Heart Association CPR, and National Safety Council First Aid. He is also certified to be an American Heart Association CPR instructor, National Safety Council First Aid Instructor and is a licensed Emergency Medical Technician. The 1995 East Tennessee State University alumnus served two years as a graduate assistant athletic trainer at Virginia Tech. While at the Blacksburg, Va. school, Moorhouse ser ved as assistant trainer for the Hokie football squad that advanced to the Sugar Bowl in 1996 and the Orange Bowl in 1997. Moorhouse also served as a trainer for Tech's wrestling and field hockey teams. "This is a great opportunity and I'm very excited about getting started," said Moorhouse. "A lot is happening at Tusculum College. The facilities are second to none and I'm looking forward to working with some fine students. I'm happy to get back into the college ranks, especially at a school like Tusculum that is gaining respect as one of the premier small colleges in the nation. Working at a small school is where I want to be." Moorhouse lettered two seasons on the collegiate gridiron at his alma mater. The Greeneville native played fullback, but his football career at ETSU was cut short due to a neck injury. He devoted the rest of his collegiate career as a student athletic trainer with the Bucs, where he assisted in covering all 16 teams at ETSU. Moorhouse and his wife, the former Amanda Kelly, were married last December and they live in Greeneville. -- Dom Donnelly
Chris Lenker takes position TC football as assistant athletic trainer; going back formerly at East Carolina on internet
Chris Lenker has been named assistant athletic trainer at Tusculum College, announced TC Director of Athletics Ed Hoffmeyer. Lenker replaces Lisa Stalans, who resigned her post earlier this summer to accept a similar position at the University of Texas. Lenker, 25, comes to the Greeneville campus after serving as graduate assistant athletic trainer at East Carolina University for the past two years. While at ECU, Lenker assisted in the management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for 500 student-athletes in the 19 sports offered at the NCAA Division I program. His primary responsibilities included men's soccer, baseball and football, which played in last season's inaugural Mobile, Alabama Bowl. "Having Chris join our staff is a real plus for Tusculum College," said Hoffmeyer. "He brings valuable experience in all areas of athletic training from a highly respected program at East Carolina University." Prior to his stint at ECU, Lenker served as head athletic trainer at White Oak High School in Jacksonville, N.C. He was responsible for the medical coverage and rehabilitation for the student-athletes at White Oak, while also serving on the faculty. "What really attracted me to Tusculum College was that the athletic department is heading in the right direction," said Lenker. "The facilities, the coaching staff and the community are first class. The athletic staff has an attitude that it is going places, and I'm excited to be a part of that." The Iowa native is certified by the National Athletic Trainers Association (N.A.T.A.) and is a licensed through the North Carolina Board of Athletic Trainer Examiners. Lenker is also a National Safety Council Instructor in First Aid, CPR and Bloodborne Pathogens). He earned his Bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science at East Carolina in 1997, and later earned his Master's in Health Education at ECU. "We are confident that our student-athletes will be in good hands with Chris and (new head athletic trainer) Craig Moorhouse in charge of their care," added Hoffmeyer. -- Dom Donnelly

Doak House Museum receives IMLS grant
Tusculum College's Doak House Museum has been informed that it is being granted $19,170 as one of 177 "exemplary museums" across the country. Beverly Sheppard, acting director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), announced Tuesday (Sept. 19) in Washington, D.C. The IMLS is the federal agency that supports the nation's 15,000 museums and 122,000 libraries. George Collins, director of the museum program and studies at Tusculum, said the grant will be used "to undertake the organization and data entry of information about the Doak House Museum's collection, with particular emphasis on the contents of the original account books of Samuel Witherspoon Doak." The Doak House Museum and President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library are administered by Tusculum's Department of Museum Program and Studies. In announcing the grants, Sheppard said, "For 22 years the federal IMLS has encouraged the best in museum service by awarding General Operating Support grants." This year over 500 museum professionals reviewed 823 applications from museums throughout the nation, according to an IMLS press release. "We are very pleased to have been awarded this grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. It is recognition of the work which has been done by Cindy Lucas, associate director, and the staff of the Doak House Museum. It is also recognition of the potential for the museum as it moves forward to expand its service to the community," Collins said. According to the IMLS, museums that receive these General Operating Support (GOS) grants are allowed great flexibility in how the grant money is spent. The GOS grants are highly competitive, according to the IMLS. Applications are judged by museum professionals with an average of 13 years experience in the field. Successful applicant museums must demonstrate "the highest standards in 10 areas involving every aspect of their operations, from collections care to security, from public education programs to exhibits.

Students, faculty, administrators, staff take part in prayer observance on campus
About 25 Tusculum College students, staff, and faculty members took part in a "SeeYou at the Pole" prayer time in front of Niswonger Commons on the campus Sept. 20 prior to the start of the day's classes. According to Campus Minister Dr. Stephen Weisz, who is also associate professor of religious studies, the event grew out of the efforts of four Tusculum students: Joel Owen of Russellville, Tenn.; Sarah McGar of Modesto, Calif.; Meredith Miles of Mor r istown, Tenn., and Sarah Flanigan of Athens, Tenn. With little advance fanfare, the observance drew about two dozen individuals to the area in front of Niswonger Commons, where they joined hands and prayed, some silently, others aloud. Prayers included petitions on behalf of the college's leaders, faculty, and students, prayers of gratitude for America's religious freedoms, and prayers for the leaders of Tusculum College. -- Cameron Judd
Members of the on-campus Tusculum College community in Greeneville, ranging from students through the college president and other administrators, faculty and staff members, gathered on Sept. 19 outside Niswonger Commons to join in prayer as part of the national "See You at the Pole" prayer event. The college's participation came about largely through the efforts of students.
Tusculum clads tie-dye to lend helping hands to new freshmen
Tusculum College was awash in more tiedye colors than had been seen on the campus since the 1960s as school faculty, staff, and administrators took a break from their usual duties and helped incoming freshman and their parents move possessions into residence halls on Aug. 15. For the lend-a-hand event, brightly colored tie-dye tee-shirts were provided to participating college personnel. College staffers involved in registering the new students also were clad in tie-dye. Dr. Dolph Henry, president, and his wife, Judy, also hosted a reception for the new freshmen and their parents in the presidential residence later in the day. Throughout the rest of the week, the freshmen were involved in orientation, which combined informative and recreational events to help students learn what they need to know to have a successful college experience. The residence halls into which many freshmen moved received improvements during the Tusculum's "uniform" of the day was tie-dye when new freshmen arrived on campus in August. Parents and students alike expressed gratitude for the help in moving into residence halls. summer. --Cameron Judd
At Partnership reception, Tusculum's 26th President reflects on home, community, and `strategic planning'
Dr. Dolphus Henry, who became Tusculum College's 26th president on June 1, and his wife, Judith, were introduced to Greeneville and Greene County political and business leaders on the evening of Aug. 17. During a reception hosted at the General Morgan Inn & Conference Center by the Greene County Partnership and Andrew Johnson Bank, Dr. Henry said he foresees a "bright future" for Tusculum College, Greeneville and Greene County. In formally introducing Henry to the dignitaries, who included U.S. Rep. Bill Jenkins, R-1st, of Rogersville, Bill Hickerson, president of Andrew Johnson Bank, said that Tusculum College has "made tremendous strides over the past 10 years toward becoming one of the premier liberal arts schools in this part of the country." Hickerson also said the college's campus has been "transformed" over the last few years, thanks to financial donations and pledges from community leaders. "Thanks to Scott Niswonger and others in this room, more than $25 million has been pledged and donated," he said. As a result, Hickerson pointed out: · the Niswonger Commons and Alpine Arena are a reality; · dormitories have been refurbished; · residence halls have received new furniture; · new sports facilities are being added, along with "a press box at Pioneer Field, a new field house, and an indoor practice facility." In addition, Hickerson said, the college has been selected to host the first-ever South Atlantic Conference Fall Sports Festival in October. That event is expected to draw 1,000 visitors to Greene County for a threeday period, he noted. Noting that Tusculum College now is "positioned to grow and expand" on its record of academic achievement, Hickerson said the school is "fortunate to have found a new president who is excited and invigorated with the challenges that lie ahead." While lauding the accomplishments of former Tusculum College President Dr. Robert E. Knott, Hickerson said he believes Dr. Henry is up to the task of succeeding Knott. He noted that Dr. Henry, who came to Tusculum from a post as Mercer University's vice president for enrollment management, is a native of nearby Southwest Virginia and holds a Ph.D. degree in educational research and evaluation fromVirginia Tech in addition to an M.S. degree from Radford University, an M.A. from Harvard University and a B.A. from Roanoke College. Henry, Hickerson noted, has 27 years of college administrative experience with emphasis on strategic planning, marketing and outcomebased learning. When Dr. Henr y took the speaker's platform, he said he wanted to thank the community for welcoming him and his wife, Judy. "When we came into Tri-Cities Regional Airport, looked south and saw the mountains, we just thought this was home," he said. "Everyone here has made us feel such a part of the community in a very short time." Calling Tusculum a "marvelous college," Henry pointed out that students have about 3,500 choices of colleges to attend in the U.S. "But when you look at the schools that are small, have unique curriculums and have civic arts missions, you really come down to a very special place, not only a college but a special location," he said."I feel very fortunate to have been selected to head this college." Henry's strategic planning background showed through when he noted that the college has begun a strategic planning process. "We need to know where we want to be in five and 10 years out," he said. "We've had many lunches with community leaders, and I've sat down with faculty and students and basically brainstormed where we would like to see Tusculum in five years and where we see our community in five years." Noting that he wanted to "get our students out" into civic organizations and schools, Henry said the college is looking to serve the community. "Really, our campus is all of Greeneville and Greene County," he said. Dr. Henry also told those in attendance that he foresees "a very bright future" for Tusculum and for Greeneville and Greene County. ----------------------------The above story, republished by permission, was written by Bill Jones, staff writer for The Greeneville Sun, and originally published in that newspaper.

TOUCHING THE COMMUNITY
TC's Service-Leader Scholars chosen based on `demonstrated responsibility, good citizenship'
Tusculum College has chosen 12 students as 2000-2001 Service Leader Scholars. Service Leader Scholars are chosen on the basis of demonstrated responsibility and good citizenship in the home, school, church or community. In addition to sharing experiences about leadership in service, students who applied to be Service Leader Scholars were asked to write an essay of 200 words or more on the topic: "What is community service, and why is it important to you?" Service Leader Scholars chosen are Brian Diaz of Boca Raton, Fla., a junior sports management major; Jennifer Bomyea-Johnson, of Jonesborough, a junior history major; S. Elizabeth Patterson of Lawrenceburg, Ind., a freshman pre-med major; Michelle Langford of Huntsville Ala., a freshman biology major; Heather Sellers of Haneville, Ala., a sophomore museum studies/political science major; Brandon Timms of Dalton, Ga., a freshman political science/history major; Hollis Deskins of Tazewell,Va., a freshman K-8 education major;Trina Wooten of Chuckey, a senior secondary education major; and Nick J.

They also publicize volunteer opportunities, work with other various other on-campus service efforts, and participate in the recruitment and orientation of new Service Leader Scholars. Each scholar receives a $2,000 scholarship applied toward tuition. The Service Leader Scholars Program is designed for students who want to make a difference in their world. The scholars are provided training and support through the Service-Learning Center on campus. As a group, they participate in programs and activities that promote leadership development, team building and the values associated with community and service. -- Robin Crabtree
Service Day activities impact both campus and community
Scores of Tusculum College students left their classrooms Sept. 7 to fan out across the campus and into the community to perform various service projects in the spirit of the college's Civic Arts emphasis and the long tradition of Nettie Fowler McCormick Service Day. Some work continued the next day as students in an Organization and Administration in Physical Education and Athletics course visited McDonald Elementary School, a Greene County school, where the students helped pupils with basketball skills, discussed sportsmanship, and so on. Tusculum students were involved in a wide range of activities both on and off campus. These included working with clients at Greene County Skills, helping out at the Good Samar itan ministr y in Johnson City, performing landscaping and other improvement projects at schools including Tusculum View Elementar y School and McDonald Elementary School, working in a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity and also helping out at a Habitat construction site, cleaning and doing other work on the grounds of the Doak House Museum on the Tusculum campus, and doing cleanup work at Paint Creek for the Forest Service. The above are only some of the service projects done, and other service projects are planned for later in the year. Tusculum students are taught the

A long-standing tradition on the campus is McCormick Service Day, named after the wife of Cyrus McCormick, famed for his invention of the McCormick reaper. Mrs. McCor mick is listed among Tusculum's Benefactors.
Tusculum College has strong presence at Knoxville-based Plasti-Line, Inc.
Professional Studies ...
On the wall of Kathy Coleman Wood's office in the headquarters of Plasti-Line, Inc., in Knoxville hangs a stylized sketch of the famous Tusculum College stone arch. Nearby hangs her Tusculum diploma, attesting to the Bachelor of Arts degree she earned in English and American History in 1977. In her role as vice president of Human Resources for Plasti-Line, Kathy works closely with Jenny Smith, senior training and organization development specialist. Jenny is a Tusculum graduate, too, having received a Bachelor of Science degree in organizational management in 1995 and a Master of Arts in adult education in 1997, both through Tusculum's Professional Studies program. They both work with Butch Davis, who has been a field activities manager at Plasti-Line for about half a year now. He's a Tusculum alum who holds a B.S. in organizational management earned through the Professional Studies program. Elsewhere in the building is Sue Fultz, a Plasti-Line customer accounts manager. She received her degree in applied organizational management in 1995, graduating cum laude through Tusculum's Professional Studies program. Richard Sorensen, manufacturing engineering manager at PlastiLine, earned his Tusculum organizational management degree only this year. He attended Professional Studies classes at the Cedar Bluff location. Mark A. Ludwig, a manager in Plasti-Line's neon/lettermaking department, is a 1988 Tusculum Professional Studies graduate in applied organizational management. And Betsy Martin, training and organization development manager at Plasti-Line, received her B.S. in organization management through Professional Studies seven years ago. There are other 2000 Tusculum graduates who pass one another in the hallways at Plasti-Line. Chris Crawford and Cara Kilgore both graduated through Tusculum's Residential College earlier this year, and are working for Plasti-Line through
Pictured outside Plasti-Line's Knoxville headquarters are, bottom row from left: Chris Crawford and Sue Fultz; second row from left: Kathy Coleman Wood, Jenny Smith, Cara Kilgore, and Betsy Martin; top row from left: Butch Davis, Mark Ludwig, and Freeman Smith. All are graduates of Tusculum through either the Residential College or the Professional Studies program. Not pictured is Rich Sorensen, another Tusculum graduate who works at Plasti-Line. a program called Plasti-Line Accelerated Career Experience, or PACE, which provides them intensive onthe-job training at the company for a year before they settle into permanent positions. Freeman Smith, another Tusculum graduate, is also on the staff. As is the case within many companies in East Tennessee, Tusculum has become increasingly well-represented at Plasti-Line. This is partly because of the steady flow of TC Residential College graduates, and even moreso because of the increasing number of East Tennessee-area working adults who take advantage of Tusculum's Professional Studies program to advance their educations. Plasti-Line is the largest retail communications and identity company in the United States, and provides companies with image and merchandising services. Knoxville is home to its corporate headquarters and a 337,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Despite their in-common alma mater, Plasti-Line's Tusculum graduates all brought different things away from their higher education experiences. For Kathy Coleman Wood, Tusculum provided a setting conducive to personal growth.Tusculum taught her to "connect" with people and to be accountable for her actions, partly because Tusculum's size makes student anonymity all but impossible. "You are not anonymous at a small school or a `small' company," Kathy noted.
Standing at the rear edge of the parking lot at Plasti-Line in Knoxville are signs for numerous companies who take advantage of Plasti-Line's communications and marketing services. Plasti-Line, which spans the country from South Carolina to California, is headquartered in Knoxville. "Being part of a small school was very meaningful to me. I later attended a much larger school (the University of Pennsylvania) for graduate school, and there was clearly a difference in the relationships with faculty members and involvement in classes. Most of my upper-level classes at Tusculum had less than 15 students! I especially enjoyed my classes with Don Sexton and Ruth Sharp. I feel I had an outstanding education." A vivid memory for her is the view of the mountains she enjoyed from her room in Virginia Hall, then a residence hall. She was an active, successful student, graduating at the top of her class with a 4.0 average. She recalled:"While at Tusculum as a sophomore I met Joe Vogt (an alumni who is now a trustee), who was head of Human Resources at one of the large plants in Oak Ridge. Joe hired me for a summer internship, which is how I began my career in HR. He made an incredible difference in my life. I've tried to do some of the same in my continuing involvement with Tusculum." Kathy's devotion to Tusculum led her to establish a scholarship some years ago, which Plasti-Line today helps fund through a matching gift. Despite the passing of years since Kathy's Tusculum days, Tusculum made similar impressions upon Cara Kilgore, who graduated in May after an academic career as a award-winning student active in many facets of campus life. "The one thing I will always remember about TC is how much the instructors really care about students," Cara said. " I hope that as TC continues to grow, the number of faculty will grow as well so that all students will be able to experience the one-on-one relationship that I did as a student. " Cara's classmate Chris Crawford, who like her was an award-winning student active in almost every aspect of Tusculum Residential College life, said he believes Tusculum is "a great college that prepares its graduates for the business world." He hails the advantages provided by Tusculum's "excellent teachers, solid educational programs," along with the competencies and the strong base in ethics provided by the Civic Arts emphasis. "TC is a great college which sends graduates who will be well prepared to enter the work force and make a positive difference," he said. Plasti-Lines' Professional Studies alums have similarly positive recollections of their Tusculum experience, though with a different flavor because of the distinctive configuration of the Professional Studies program. Dr. Shirley Beck Award-winner Betsy Martin, who prior to working for Plasti-Line spent 20 years with Lockheed-Martin and its predecessors in Oak Ridge, said she most appreciates Professional Studies' "realworld" educational focus and the opportunity to learn with a group of peers. "I greatly enjoyed the studygroup concept . . . the study groups were extremely beneficial," she said. "My graduate level study group was so great in fact that I'm still in contact with them. I also greatly enjoyed many of the professors. It was great to hear from folks who were really enthused about their subject." Butch Davis enjoyed the process of data collection and format organization involved in writing his research paper for Professional Studies. "Getting my degree was definitely a journey and a lot of work, but it was well worth it," Butch said. "A degree from Tusculum was respected by employers I interviewed with prior to being hired by PlastiLine." Like many in the Professional Studies program, Butch Davis is both a working man and a family man. He has a wife and three children, the youngest born in March. Richard Sorensen likewise enjoyed the study group approach of Professional Studies. "The study group concept and completion of group/team projects are a valuable skills set. The emphasis on presentations, communication and public speaking are a lessons I use daily in my job," he said. Mark Ludwig enjoyed "sharing business problems and solutions with classmates who have real-world application experience." Cum laude graduate Sue Fultz was impressed by the way the Professional Studies program design allowed her to "integrate" her work with company activities. "I was able to learn a lot more about the company I worked for (beyond just the scope of my job) as well as learning the organizational management concepts at school," she said. What are her most clear memories of Professional Studies? "Presentations, presentations, presentations! And team work!" -- Cameron Judd

College's enrollment efforts guided by new VP
Tusculum College's on-going effort to maintain and increase enrollment is being guided by a new vice president. George F. Wolf joined Tusculum as vice president for enrollment management earlier this year. "I'm really excited to be here at Tusculum,"Wolf said."There are many changes taking place, presenting many opportunities for Tusculum to reach its full potential. As Tennessee's oldest college,Tusculum has traditionally offered students in the Greeneville area and across the United States unique opportunities to prepare for successful lives. "I'm energized to be part of an institution that has so much to offer its students and community," Wolf went on. Since coming to Tusculum,Wolf has already done some new things to help get the word out to students about the historic institution. He has used new advertising outlets, revised the Tusculum application format, approved creation of an on-line application, and sponsored a regional radio "remote" broadcast at the College during a recent college fair, among other things. Wolf came to Tusculum from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, where he held the same title he now holds at Tusculum. During his time at Virginia Intermont, the entering enrollment for both spring and fall 2000 terms increased significantly. He also conducted a series of enrollment management-related workshops and was instrumental in Virginia Intermont's solicitation of a Teagle Grant, the largest private foundation grant ever received by the institution. He also developed action teams to address enrollment issues and implement program improvements, and directed a revenue-based financial aid strategy. Prior to working at Virginia Intermont College,Wolf was the interim director of admissions for North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, N.C.There his work included organizing the admission operation and assisting the enrollment vice president in developing a five-year strategic plan. From 1990-1997, Wolf was employed by Adrian College in Adrian, Mich., first as director of admissions and then, beginning in 1993, as assistant vice president for enrollment management. As the director of admissions, he was heavily involved in management and marketing, and organized a recruitment operation designed to be cost-effective and results-oriented. As assistant vice president for enrollment management, Wolf worked to establish and implement an effective enrollment management system. Wolf has gained other admissions experience at Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, where he started out as an admissions representative, became the assistant director of admissions, then the associate director of admissions, and finally the director of admissions. Some of Wolf 's specialized training has come through the National Conference on Student Retention, Recruitment and Enrollment Management in Washington, D.C.; the Summer Institute on College Entrance, Academic Placement and Financial Aid at the University of North Carolina, and various seminars on college admissions, retention, institutional diversity and financial aid. He has been a presenter on admissions, financial aid, marketing and communication topics at several professional meetings and seminars throughout his career. Wolf 's professional affiliations include the National Association of College Admissions Counseling, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, the Virginia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia, the Southern Association of College Admissions Counseling, the Michigan Association of College Admissions Counseling, the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, and the Indiana Association of College Admissions Counseling. He received a bachelor of arts in mass communications/public relations from Kentucky Wesleyan College and a master of arts in human resource development from Siena Heights University in Adrian, Mich. Tusculum College President Dr. Dolphus E. Henry said he is very pleased Wolf is on the staff of the college. "Having George Wolf become part of the Tusculum College team is a very positive development for all of us," Dr. Henry said. "With Tusculum's innovative one-class-ata-time curriculum and focus on the Civic Arts, the college has some distinctive advantages to offer, and George is dedicated to making sure that everyone knows it. His track record proves his skill , and I'm very happy he's now putting that skill to work for the advancement of Tusculum College." Wolf and his wife,Yvonne, currently live in Kingsport but hope to eventually move to the Greeneville area.

TUSCULUM IN PRINT
Newly published pictorial history of Tusculum College features images depicting many years of life on campus
A new pictorial history of Tusculum College, written and compiled by Frank T. Wheeler of Greeneville, has been published by Arcadia Publishing in Charleston, S.C. as part of a series on American colleges. Entitled The College History Series:Tusculum College, the trade-sized paperback is filled with closely researched text, and images of or related to the college throughout its history.These range from some of the Wheeler said he was initially reluctant to accept the project. "I was new to Tusculum, and I also recalled many long nights and weekends spent working on the other books. So I said at first I would think about it." Experiences he had on the job for Tusculum ended up leading him to accept the project. "One of the real joys of my job is all of the people I meet," Wheeler said. "I do a great deal of traveling throughout the country, meeting with alumni and friends of the college. During the course of conversation I learn a great deal about the experiences of each alumnus. During one of these visits early this year, I realized that this book was a good idea. So I began documenting this personal side to the wonderful history of Tusculum so that this material would not be lost." The first top on the path to project completion was the college archives, located in the Andrew Johnson Museum and Librar y. Wheeler credits Alvin Gerhardt, then-director of museum programs and museum studies at Tusculum, and Cindy Lucas, associate director of the Doak House Museum and the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library on the campus, as providing a "wealth of information." With their help,Wheeler said, he was able to find in the college archives the answer to almost any question that arose. In addition to primary sources he located in the archives, Wheeler relied on the three previous college histories: A History of Tusculum College by Allen E. Ragan; The Life and Times of Tusculum College by Joseph Fuhrmann; and Glimpses of Tusculum College by Donal J. Sexton and Myron "Jack" Smith. Sexton and Smith are both currently affiliated with Tusculum, Sexton as professor of history and Smith as director of the library and professor of library science and history. These earlier works, which Wheeler calls "the scholarly works on the college," proved to be invaluable to his own work, he said. To supplement the resources he
Frank Wheeler oldest existing photographs of the college through an image of the current president Dr. Dolphus Henry, who joined Tusculum as recently as June. Wheeler, the college's director of planned giving, was approached in December of 1999 by Mark Berry of Arcadia Publishing, who told him Arcadia was embarking on a new series of books similar to their highly successful Images of America Series. This new series, entitled The College History Series, was in need of new titles for publication. Wheeler already had worked with Arcadia during his five-year stint as assistant director of the Georgia Historical Society in Savannah, prior to coming to Tusculum. While still in Savannah, Wheeler authored two Arcadia books, The Great Savannah Races and The Savannah River Plantations. Berry told Wheeler that he believed that a publication on Tusculum College, Tennessee's oldest college, would be an asset to the new series.
The cover of Wheeler's new book is shown above. Tusculum shares distinguished company in this book series: Princeton University's book in the same series has only recently been published. found on campus, Wheeler made weekend outings with his wife, Paige, and their sons, Nathan and Duncan, in search of the sites and people of the college's past. They visited locations ranging from the first site of Greeneville College to the cemeteries throughout East Tennessee where those important to the life and history of the institution are buried. "My wife knows more about the history of Tusculum College than she realizes," Wheeler said. "In the evenings, after our sons were in bed, I would spread photocopies of hundreds of photographs across the floor. The process of bringing the number of images to under 200 and putting the text together required patience and a critical eye. Paige gave me both." Wheeler dedicated the book to the "alumni of Tusculum College." Wheeler considers the project a natural by-product of his "day job" and said he hopes that, as the dedication to Tusculum alumni readers states: "as you thumb through the pages you are reminded of your days on campus." The book sells for $19.99 and became available at Tusculum College during Homecoming weekend.
