MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker staff and students said goodbye to fellow baron, Kelley Arnold, on her last day as Director of News and Public Information on September 12, 2011. After five years of faithful dedication in overseeing the distribution of important news in the community, Kelley will continue this year’s tradition of new beginnings as she takes up the position of Institutional Advancement Coordinator at Altamaha Technical College in Jesup, Georgia.
The small gathering was held in the Gold Room, located in the Phillips Student Center, during lunchtime, as coworkers and close friends shared bitter-sweet embraces over cake and refreshments and wished Kelley well in her new career. To all in attendance, it was apparent that she had made a positive and unforgettable impact on the campus.
“I enjoyed working with Kelley,” commented Marketing Associate, Mandy Corbin. “I learned so much from her. She will be missed.”
“I think that Kelley has done a great service to the college, especially during our time of need,” said Joshua McPhatter, active student leader and former Student Government President. “I know that she will find more opportunities to use her gifts to serve the Lord.”
When asked about his experience in working with Kelley, Taylor Hereford, former Director of Marketing for BPC, had this to say: “She immediately hit the ground running. She was outgoing, involved with the students, and a terrific writer. She will do wonders in her new position. BPC will hate to see her go."
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
