Who Says You Can’t Come Home? - Homecoming is just around the corner (November 14-15) and early indications for the Friday night Alumni Banquet, Class of ’64, and 90s decade point to another great crowd returning to campus for the big weekend. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to make the trip - across the street or across the country - there’s still time. Don’t put yourself in the ‘wish I’d gone’ category after the event. Call/email/tweet/send a pigeon to your college ‘posse’ and set up your own reunion on campus that weekend.
To register for Friday night’s Alumni Banquet, go to www.oc.edu/alumnibanquet. For a full Homecoming schedule, go to www.oc.edu/homecoming.
Double Vision - The latest Vision magazine should hit your mailbox about the time this email does, so look through the Homecoming info in that issue and make plans to join us. This issue features a first-person retirement reflection from Dr. Bailey McBride, plus stories about our Homecoming honorees - Harold and Sally Shank, Andrew Silvestri, OC’s Brazil missionaries, and Richard and Mo Anderson. Also, check out the online version of this edition along with past issues on our new Vision website! (www.oc.edu/vision)
Stafford North’s Good News - The October issue shows a wide range of services available through churches of Christ. One story tells of preachers being trained in Central America, another of outreach through a diabetes support group, and still another tells of the work among our children’s homes. The final article is about a Golden Age Camp in Montana where many gather each year to study and admire God’s beautiful creation. To read this issue, go to www.oc.edu/goodnews. If you have a suggestion for a story or a report that would put us on the track of a good article, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Always an Eagle - The only other bit of news I’m going to include in this issue is that one of our longtime employees, Jeff Bingham (88), is leaving us after 17 great years to go work for Oklahoma Christian Academy in Edmond. Jeff has done an outstanding job serving the university as Chief Financial Officer. He has been an important part of the OC family and we will miss him here on campus. The good news … he’s STILL a part of the OC family and is just a couple of miles away, so we can still bug him with questions. Our best wishes to Jeff on his new venture!
Hard to believe it, but our next issue of Eagle Excerpts will have us heading into the holiday season. Until then, Eagle UP!
