acquainted with Miss Sue Holmes

two of the new members of our
faculty. But do all of us know all
the other new members of our

Of course the first thing we
all heard after arriving was that
there was another man on the fac

wonder if we couldn’t work in
just one of his classes. Mr. Fred

of Tennessee where he majored in
Biology. He has taught in the
Maryville high school and at

And Dr* Hollis As New Deans

cently we have had three more
hours accredited - and I want to
work for and behold continued
growth. Then, too, I like young
people, and I want to help the
girls here to develop self-reliance,
and the kind of spirit that will
help them get along on their own
outside of college life.”
This was the answer Miss Sue
Day Holmes gave when asked
about her reasons for coming to
Montreat. Miss Holmes, new Dean

awarded the first art certificate to
be given by that institution. Soon
after graduation, she went to
work for a Baptist Publishing

of a succession of jobs which took
her into the fields of art, adver
tising, social work, and education.
Some of these positions have in

To the new members of the

like to extend a hearty welcome
to Montreat.
The first thing one notice”,
about Dr. Joe Ed Hollis, new Doan

talk convinced us that he is just
as nice as he seems.
