Just like mom's—Birmingham-Southern's 10th annual Mama’s Home Cookin’ event took place Jan. 23 in Bruno Great Hall of the Norton Campus Center. The evening event is one of many recreational opportunities that BSC students enjoy during the month-long Exploration Term. The event started in 2002 when then-New Men’s Residence Hall Advisor Chris Herrington asked his mother to prepare a home-cooked meal for the residents on his floor. Over the years, the event has grown to a campuswide celebration, with parents coming from all over the surrounding region to deliver their home-cooked dishes—from soup and stew to spaghetti and turkey and dressing. Some 35 parents were on hand this year with their home-cooked meals, along with members of the college’s Office of Student Development and other BSC staff volunteers.
Motivational pep talk—The Altamont School hosted Birmingham-Southern President Gen. Charles Krulak Jan. 23 during its morning assembly. Pictured with Krulak is Altamont 10th grader Emory Cox. Krulak addressed the student body on ethical leadership and shared personal experiences that have helped shape his leadership style. He also challenged the students to be persons of character by being selfless and having moral courage and integrity as they lead our nation for the rest of this century. Krulak closed his speech with Eddie Wilcoxen’s poem “The Eagle and the Wolf.” A question and answer session followed. Altamont is a college preparatory school in East Birmingham. The event was organized by members of the school’s C. Kyser Miree Ethical Leadership Center.
