Five Inducted to MCC Hall of Fame

Meridian Community College Wednesday inducted five distinguished graduates into the Flying Eagle Hall of Fame.

Radio executive Eddie Holladay, Stennis Space Center director Gene Goldman, insurance executive Bud Thompson, Riley Hospital CEO Pam Tvarkunas, and MCC's physical plant director Terry Williams were inducted this year. The ceremony kicks off homecoming festivities.

"Really these people represent the best that we have to offer at MCC," said MCC president Dr. Scott Elliott. "They represent our aspirations for every student, that they'll go on from here, and not only excel in their careers but also be servant leaders in their community. And if we can accomplish that at MCC, we feel like we've done our job."

Four MCC employees were also inducted into the college's Talon Club, recognizing 30-years of service: Deborah Stokes, Anita Quinnelly, Barbara Bishop and Carey Smith.

    Carey Smith was my favorite teacher. I have always loved music, but I took Music Appreciation as a fill in class, thinking it would be an easy A. I was wrong. I got a B for the class, but it was tough. What amazed me about the class was that every genre of music we studied, Mr. Smith could play on the piano the artists that we were studying. Beethoven, Mozart, all the way up to and including the jazz age. I thought that Mr. Smith was one of the most talented people I have ever met and was blown away by his expertise. It is about time this man was recognized for his talent!
