Efforts of Food Services
Perhpas one of the busiest “auxiliary enterprises” of the college
community which serves students, is Food Services of Thomas
Cafeteria. The staff works many, many hours each week in
preparing meals and strives constantly to provide the very best
meals possible for the students. Foremost in these efforts is the
goal to make every meal a well-balanced and nutritious one.
In addition to the normal, day-to-day operation of providing
three meals a day to the approximately 900 students and faculty,
the cafeteria staff provides meals for numerous banquets and
special meetings which take place on campus and within the
President’s Dining Room.
The Food Services Staff also makes extra efforts on special oc
casions by providing bountiful buffets. Such will be the case on Oc
tober 30, when the annual Halloween Buffet will be staged, and
prizes given for the best costumes worn by students. This affair is
always a “fun evening” and enjoyed by all those attending. In
November, the staff will again provide a special buffet in obser
vance of Thanksgiving, and the same will be true the following
month with a special Christmas dinner.
The staff is to be commended, not only for the long hours of day-
to-day operation, but for going the “extra mile” in seeking to pro
vide the very best service possible to the college conomunity.
Help is Waiting
A recent survey of Chowan students indicated that 50-55%
wondered if they were in the program of study which was right for
them. Also, a large number of Chowan students will change their
major at least once prior to graduation.
If you are like most students at Chowan and other junior col
leges across the nation, you probably have similar problems in
determining your furture career goals.
If you are undecided on a major or career, and would like help in
determining your future plans, both academically and occupa
tionally, you might be interested in coming by the CounseUng and
Career Development Center located in the basement of the library
(across from Snack Bar).
We have the following diagnostic tools to aid you in your deci
sion: (1) the Self-Directed Search: 'A Guide to Educational and
Vocational Planning (an interest inventory that can guide you to
an occupation); (2) the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, which
has definitions of over 20,000 occupations; (3) the Occupational
Outlook Handbook which lists requirements, salaries, future
growth and employment outlooks for jobs; and (4) many others.
These will help you determine your career goals based on in
terest and ability. With this information as a guide, the Counseling
and Career Development Offtce can assist you in planning your
curriculum while at Chowan so that your transfer to a senior in
stitution will be as smooth as possible. —Linda Tripp,

By DICK WELSH
Jim Garrison is a football coach who
necessarily teaches the game in a
hurry. Time is traditionally his enemy
because he has only two seasons to
develop a quality player.
Chowan College is Garrison’s
coaching residence and it has been for
27 years. His goal is not only to win foot
ball games but, at the same time, to
prepare his players for two more years
oi football at a four-year college and
possibly for a pro career later.
“That’s our whole philsophy here,
really, to get them ready for a bigger
college and maybe the pros after col
lege,” said Garrison. “I’ve been in the
game most of my life and I have always
loved athletics. Of course, it makes us
feel proud to see one of our players go
on to a successful career in a major col
lege or the pros.”
And Garrison, whose teams have had
only five losing records in 27 years,
keeps close tabs on his Chowan football
He can reel off the ex-Chowan players
who have made it in the pro ranks:
Jerry Holmes, who went from
Chowan to West Virginia, then to the
New York Jets and then to Pittsburgh
of the United States Football League;
Robert Brown, a defensive end Who
played at Virginia Tech and Graen
Jody Schultz, a defensive end who
was a second-round pick of the
Philadelphia Eagles three years ago
and Is now and outside linebacker;
Mike Grant, a linebadeer with the
Memphis Showboats of the VSFL;
Amos Twitty, a linebacker who went
from Chowan to E^t Carolina to the
And running back David Green, who
was formerly player of the year in the
Canadian Football League af Monbeal.
He played coUegiately at Edinboro
(Pa.) State after leaving Chowan.
Garrison launched his 28th season
with the Braves on Sept. 8 on the road
against the Newport News Apprentice
School, which is coached by ex-pro Nor
Garrison likes the slot I and pro I
styles of offense and at quarterback
will be either Brian Phillips of Tabb,
who sat out last year, or Linnie Mister
of Carterett County, N.C.
A real sleeper of the Braves may turn
out to be Dean Bumbacco, a split end
from New Jersey who had signed with
the University of Richmond, “But then
found out he had come up a bit thin on
his college boards and had to go to a
junior college,” Garrison said. Bum
bacco is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds and runs
the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. “He can
be a great split end when he gains con
Sharing the “I” back position will be
two second-year men, Miles Gray, 5-9,
180 pounds, from Queen Anne’s Md.,
and Steve Boyd, 5-11, 205, from
Washington, N.C. Both have good
Danny Cribbs of Myrtle Beach, will
pack his 5-11, 210i>ound frame into the
fullback spot. Of the pass receiving
corps in general. Garrison says, “We’re
in limbo at this stage.”
Mark Wells, a 205-pounder from
Roanoke, might play tight end and
Richard Kershaw of Philadelphia could
start at split end. The flanker likely will
be Robert Williams, 5-1, 165, from
Heading up the tackle Morgan An
drus of Richmond, guards Charlie
Poole and Pearce Neal and center
Henry Kennedy of Hampton.
Anchoring the defensive line will be a
couple of huge tackles, 270-pound
Walter Slay of Wilmington, Del., and
240-pound Larry Boone of Conway, N.C.
Two other giant linemen figure to see a
lot of action on defense, Clayton Cur-
reton of Charlotte, who is 6-2 and 275,
and 230-pound Domingo Henson of
Coaching a junior college also has its
risky side. For instance, Garrison
learned a week before practice that the
University of Houston had signed Tim
Britton, “Just a great linebacker who
was going to be the hub of our defense
this season. That happens sometimes,
but not too often. Most of our players
stay here two years before moving on to
a bigger schooL”
What’s Garrison’s secret to success]
“No secret,” he said, “just a lot of
His Braves have been hard at prac
tice since August 5 and there were two
big scrimmages against four-year
school included in those sessions.
Chowan held its own in a scrimmage
with Catawba and went up against
Elon. Elon, NAIA champion in both 1980
and 1981, is highly rated again this
“Those two scrimmages should help
us tremendously,” said Garrison. “It
was a chance to evaluate our team.”
The Braves scored two touchdowns to
Catawba’s one (in a controlled scrim
mage, not a regulation game).
“We look pretty good both ways but
we did lack-consistency. That’s been
one of the big things we’re trying to im
prove, our consistency, but we did a lot
of things really well against Catawba.
And we were able to point out some
mistakes to our players so they won’t
make them again. Our second offensive
unit did a good job for us against
Chowan went 7-2 last season, the
defeats coming against the No. 1 and
No. 5 finishers in the Coastal Con
ference, Harford (Md.) College and
Nassau (N.Y.) College.
The Coastal Conference is rather uni
que in that its eight members represent
six states—Chowan and Lees-McRae
(Banner Elk) in North Carolina, Fer-
rum (Virginia), Potcsnac State (West
Virginia), Harford (Md.), Wesley (of
Dover, Del.) and Nassau and Hudson
Valley in New York.
Probably the leading freshman can
didate is Robert Majette of Norfolk’s
Lake Taylor High, who was recruited
by several major colleges and had
beenheaded for East Carolina until he
found that he needed to boost his
He’ll be tried at free safety and
strong safety, “But he could become a
very find wide receiver, too,” said Gar
Breaking into the starting secondary
won’t be easy for Majette because the
Braves are loaded back there.
“We should have a very strong secon
dary because we have hour outstanding
players coming back; Jeff Getghers,
Milton Gore, Chris Aikin and Bobby
Wright, our free safety,” said Garrison.
Summing up, Garrison said, “We feel
good about how we have advanced in
practice but we’re a fairly young team
and most players on our depth chart are
