Buffs Notes – Week of May 14, 2017
Good morning, University, and good morning, Buffs!
Finals are over and the spring senior have walked the stage! We celebrate our graduates: Judy Papenfus, Darci Thompson, McKenzie Mayfield, Kenzie Perryman, Logan Wren, Clay Rushton, Chance Herron, and Trenton Allen. Please note that Kenzie Perryman is serving as the interim secretary for Buffs for Christ.
I am excited to share, glory to God, that the students of WTAMU have now raised $21,455.92 for GOATS this year, bringing the 9-year total to over $206,000! Even more, I would like you to know that Stan Pena, Director of Contracts and projects, sent an email complementing the Shack-A-Thon TEAM (which includes all helpers from the University Church of Christ) saying this year’s event was the “best organized and detailed” event he had seen in 30 years as facilities administrator. His complements recognized the character of the team, and he copied his email to two WTAMU vice presidents and the university president. God is good and He deserves all glory and praise!
As you know, we are now gearing up for a summer full of New Student Orientations (NSOs) and Buffs for Christ supporting church visits, not to mention a little conference July 20-23. We are still firming up 4-5 locations and dates, but here is our schedule so far:
- Sunday, May 28 @ Claude
- Wednesday, May 31 @ Anna Street, Amarillo
- Sunday, June 11 @ Spearman
- Sunday, June 18 @ Memphis
- Sunday, July 9 @ Fritch
- Sunday, July 16 @ Wheeler
University, as we have come to the end of another school year, please allow me to say than you for your invaluable support of Buffs for Christ! You give so very generously to this work and in so many different ways. I look forward to sharing much more with you about how God has been blessing the students of Buffs for Christ and the WTAMU campus through the Bible Chair.
