Welcome to Birmingham-Southern's “Hilltop Photo of the Week” web page and archives. Each week at this site, we'll feature a photo that depicts some aspect of life on the Hilltop campus, along with brief information about what is taking place in the Photo of the Week.
The college welcomes submissions to be considered for the Hilltop Photo of the Week. Scanned or digital photos can be e-mailed to the Office of Communications at email@example.com, or photographic prints may be sent through campus mail to Box 549004. Please limit photo submissions to those that depict some aspect of the BSC experience, and be sure to identify what is taking place in the photo, along with location and people involved.
A photo or two
April is a busy month on the Birmingham-Southern campus, and this week, two photos caught our fancy, both of them involving student honors.
Sorority honors—Members of Birmingham-Southern's Panhellenic Council, the governing body of the college's sororities, accepted several awards at the Southeastern Panhellenic Conference held recently in Atlanta, including the Order of Omega Award for Outstanding Chapter in the Southeast for the college's Eta Xi chapter of this organization, a Public Relations Award, and the Gamma Sigma Alpha Award for sorority grade-point average in the Southeast region. Shown with the awards are (clockwise from top) Whitney Anderson, Kadie Ann Duren, Laura Buckner, Joanna Philip, Sarah Grace Wilder, and Jeanne Sleadd.
Outstanding organists—Four Birmingham-Southern organ majors recently have been honored for their musical talents. From left to right, Kenny Lewis, a freshman from Mount Olive, won the Minnie McNeil Carr Scholarship competition sponsored by the Birmingham Chapter of the American Guild of Organists; Patrick Scott, a junior from Picayune, Miss., won the Myrtle Jones Steele Scholarship competition sponsored by the Birmingham Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and was winner of the state level of the Regional Competition for Young Organists; David Talley, a sophomore from Pleasant Grove, won the Alabama competition sponsored by the Federated Music Clubs and is now a competitor at the national level; and Richard Byrd, a junior from Mountain Brook, was runner up in the state level of the Regional Competition for Young Organists.
