Fall 2015 RECORD Examines Inspired Participation

What moves a dad to revisit a goal he abandoned a decade ago, return to college and succeed in earning his bachelor’s degree?

What compels a volleyball standout from California to travel halfway across the country to play for a college that has never before put a men’s volleyball team on the court?

What brought a tour guide in Ireland to tears upon hearing “The Lord bless you and keep you” prayed in song by Greenville College’s choir as its members encircled him?

Just out, the fall issue of The RECORD, “Come Join Us – Inspiring Participation” draws its theme from the last line of Greenville College’s vision statement, “This is Greenville College and we invite you to join our community.” Its stories explore variations on that invitation: come study with us, come play with us, and come worship with us.

Featured pieces include “On the Wings of a Vision” that celebrates 20 years of GC’s degree completion program. Others report on the choir’s recent tour of Ireland, GC’s expanded cheerleading program and its inaugural year of NCAA men’s volleyball. Readers also will learn about the new Briner School of Business and Bob Briner ’56, its namesake.

Alumni will not want to miss tributes to Jack Trager ’55, longtime coach and athletic director at GC, and Gayle Stephens  ’48, a towering figure in the Family Medicine Movement. Stephens is namesake of  “The G. Gayle Stephens Keystone Conference Series,” recently established by the American Board of Family Medicine Foundation.
