To date, the football team with the most wins in a season is the 1946 squad, which posted a 9-1 record. The team’s only loss came from Catawba (N.C.) College on Jan. 1, 1947, in the inaugural Tangerine Bowl, which later became known as the Florida Citrus Bowl.
Nov. 1 is the deadline for reserving your spot on the trip to Scotland for the Presbyterian Heritage Tour “The Lands of John Knox,” and space is limited. All of the information is on the MC web site. Contact Helen Bruner at 865.981.8202 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
No, it’s not a parking lot being constructed on the “golf course” fronting U.S. Highway 321. The College is required by city codes to provide proper drainage while the new residence hall is under construction. The grading is creating a small, grassy, detention pond with a grass berm and two relatively small drains. Eventually, the visual effects of the new drainage will be minimal.
Alumni, parents and friends of the College are now receiving opportunities to support the “Our Window of Opportunity” campaign. These campaign materials, appearing in mailboxes everywhere, describe the projects and ask all who care about MC to stretch their giving over the next two years so that the College can reach these ambitious goals for the students of today and tomorrow.
