In chapel, Armstrong spokeabout the importance of being informed and educated about the Constitution, important SupremeCourt cases dealing with religion, and the gradual loss of freedoms. Dr. Richard Huston, head of the history department at Greenville College, introduced Armstrong at both chapel and the colloquium. Armstrong spoke very passionately about theses pressing issues that affect our country today andwhat we can to do combat the forces of ignorance. He has even set up Constitution clubs, whichhe is active in, to help educate people about U.S. history, the Constitution, and the processes androles of the government.

While “Prof” Tidball’s colleagues recall him as a loyal supporter and enthusiastic champion for the college, many more in the Greenville area remember him as a gracious servant and good friend.

Northern Ireland Spring Break Trip

Who said Spring Break couldn't be full of surprises? (Actually, I have never heard anyone utter an opinion one way or the other on that subject -- just needed an attention-getting opener.) (It worked -- you're still reading.) Like other stories I've heard from fellow sojourners about their trips (or nontrips) over Spring Break, my Spring Break experience didn't exactly go according to plan. In fact, our backpacking adventure to Big Bend National Park in Texas unfolded much differently then our fearless leader, Dustin Fenton, and the rest of our band of merry hikers had anticipated. However, the trip proved to be an incredible experience despite the surprises. Though freezing temperatures, strong winds, a severe drought, and repeated warnings of mountain lions and bears tried to subdue us, we stood our ground and conquered the wilderness like seasoned explorers. ...
