While most GWC
students can go home
for fall break, most in
are forced to stay on
campus or travel home
with friends. Four of
Gardner-Webb’s international students
spent their fall break in Mars Hill, NC at an
International Student Conference.
Emma Consuelos (Mexico), Mamadi
Corra (Gambia), Clovis Ngha and William
Nglae-Njume (both from Cameroon) went
to the conference along with the group’s
sponsor, Carolyn McKinney.
McKinney said, "I get so much pleasure
from seeing them [the international stu
dents] happy and meeting people from their
home countries." For example, Consuelos
didn’t know anyone else who planned to be
at the conference, but when she heard some
one speaking her native language she was
talking to them immediately.
The purpose of the conference is to give
international students, who are studying in
North Carolina, a chance to discuss nation
al, cultural, and religious differences, and to
allow students a chance to experience some
of the different cultures in North Carolina.
The theme of the fall conference was "Ex
ploring One World, Different Cultures"
and the topic of discussion was "Racism."
Rev. Motlalepula Chabaku, a native
South African and minister with the United
Methodist Church, was the key speaker.
115 students, representing 32 countries
and 19 North Carolina colleges, attended
Ozzie McFarland: New Athletic Director
Special to The Pilot
On October 15, Gardner-Webb President
Chris White armounced the appointment of
Frank "Ozzie" McFarland, III as the
school’s athletic director. McFarland, an
employee of the GWC athletic program for
the last eight years, replaces Woody Fish
who resigned in order to devote more time
to his football coaching duties.
"The position of athletic director is so im
portant a position at the college that we
wanted someone that had a demonstrated
allegiance and understanding of the institu
tion," White said. "We also wanted some
one who was willing to commit his profes
sional life to this aspect of the college. I
believe Ozzie is that person. He is a
Cleveland County native who over the span
of eight years has elevated himself from a
graduate assistant position to the head of
the athletic department. That is really an

Gardner-Webb College," McFarland said.
"I very much believe in the Christian educa

department honors both our Christian and
academic commitments. I will also devote
my attention to giving our athletic teams the

Homecoming a Success
By Jane Richards
Homecoming events the week of Oct. 24-
27 proved to be a great success as students
enjoyed such activities as skating, money
whirlwinds, and a movie, as well as a dance
in the LYCC.
Students returned to GWC from Fall
Break, and, on Wednesday, a large number
went to Kate’s in Shelby for three hours of
music and roller skating.
On Thursday night, GW students could be
found in the OMG Recital Hall watching
their friends run around with flippers on, or
munching on marshmallows, all for the op
portunity to climb into a wind machine and
grab for some quick cask. Jill Galloway
came away winner-and had $193 in her
pocket for her effort.
3-D glasses and donuts were available on
Friday night for those who came out to see
"Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3-D" at
During half-time of the game, Lana
Chambers was announced as Queen, with
Donna Pritchard as Senior Attendant.
Other class attendants were Mary Metcalf,
juniors; Angela Lamb, sophomores; and
Katie Stallings, freshmen.
Despite Gardner-Webb’s loss to Elon on
the football field, the dance was a great suc
cess, as Mike Long’s Videos brought great
music and videos to students who wanted to
dance the night away.
Overall, "The Tradition of Excellence"
continued with the SEA’s excellent
