The Alumni Executive Committee and the college’s alumni coordinator are planning for class reunions at TMC during the fall months.

A 60-year reunion luncheon for the very first graduating class of TMC—the Class of 1949—was held in early July.  It was an exciting time, for it was TMC’s very first opportunity to have a 60-year reunion.  The event was held at noon on Wednesday, July 1, 2009, in the Nix Student Center on the campus.  The Class of 1950 was invited to join in the fun because their years at TMC overlapped a portion of the time spent at the college by the 1949 class. 

Plans are also being made for a 50-year reunion of the Class of 1959 on Friday evening, November 6, 2009, and a 45-year reunion of the Class of 1964 on Friday, October 2, 2009.  Plans are still in the tentative stage for a gathering of TMC alumni who met their spouses at TMC, as well.  A group of alumni from the Class of 1977 are beginning work on a reunion of their class to be held next spring.

Edna Holcomb, alumni coordinator, would be delighted to help plan and carry out class reunions or special interest group gatherings.  E-mail her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Truett-McConnell College opened the TMC Wellness Center in mid-January 2009. The center, which was established with a generous grant from the Georgia Baptist Health Care Foundation, is located in two rooms recently added to the front of the college gymnasium.

The Wellness Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until noon and from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. The membership fee is $150 per year, payable at the time of application.

The center features the newest in cardiovascular equipment (six treadmills, a rowing machine, two elliptical trainers, a stationary bicycle, a

recumbent bicycle and a StairMaster), as well as strength-training equipment (free weights and Nautilus strength-training machines) and stretching equipment (floor mats and bands).

There will not be an attendant on duty in the Wellness Center, so every user must use the equipment at his or her own risk.

Any interested person is invited to visit the college gymnasium to see the new TMC Wellness Center. For information or a membership application, call Wellness Center director Jim Waits at (706) 865-2134, ext. 250.

Truett-McConnell Inaugurates Eighth President

On March 26, 2009, Truett-McConnell College will celebrate a historic event—the inauguration of its eighth president, Dr. Emir F. Caner. TMC alumni and friends of the college are invited to attend the inauguration at 9:30 AM in the college gymnasium.
Dr. Emir Caner

Dr. Caner holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He came to Truett-McConnell in mid-August of 2008 from Fort Worth, TX, having served as Dean of the College at Southwestern, the undergraduate division of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Director of the Center for Free Church Studies at the seminary.

He was reared a Sunni Muslim and is the first former Muslim to become president of a college or university affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. At the age of 38, he is also the youngest man to take the helm of Truett-McConnell.

Featured speakers on the inaugural program will include Dr. Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Seminary; Dr. Johnny Hunt, president of the Southern Baptist Convention; Dr. Ergun Caner, brother of the TMC president and president of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, VA; Dr. Robert White, executive director of the Georgia Baptist Convention; Dr. Frank Cox, pastor of North Metro First Baptist Church; and Rev. Bucky Kennedy, president of the Georgia Baptist Convention.

Dr. Caner is married to the former Hana Titerova, a native of the Czech Republic. The Caners have three children: John Mark, 6; Daniela, 3; and Anna, 1.

He is the author or co-author of 16 books with several more in various stages of preparation for publishing. He and his brother are co-authors of Unveiling Islam: An Insider’s Look at Muslim Life and Beliefs, which has proved to be a very timely and popular explanation of Islamic belief and practice. Dr. Caner is in great demand as a speaker both nationally and internationally.
