I’m thankful that I had the privilege to grow up at CRC. My mother - Metta Moore - taught there from the beginning in 1964 till her retirement in 1981. I’m thankful she exposed me to that environment, that I was able to ‘take her job’ after she retired, and that CRC continues to provide a home for students today. Happy Thanksgiving!
I am thankful for the influence of those who sacrificially gave of themselves for the benefit of a small group of students who desired to receive a Christian education. I'm thankful that I was able to be in the first Ambassadors quartet with whom I had the opportunity to travel across Arkansas and southern Missouri (and fry a lot of fish!!). I'm thankful for life lessons learned from people like Emmett Smith, Boyd Morgan, Phil Wilkerson, Kay Gowen, Bryce Dollins, Carter & Ruth Geer, the Abbott's, Metta Dean Moore, and others. We all loved Bert & Babe, Dorothy Newsom, and Arvil Matheny for their service. I'm also thankful for the time that I worked at CRC (80-82). I guess I could write a book!! Many memories!
I am thankful for my time at CRC. My time there aloud me to grow as a Christian, as a person, and as a friend. The people I met there have had and continue to have a lasting impression in my life. I would not be where I am today without my time at CRC.
I have wonderful memories of CRC...1980-82. Mitch do you remember the Blinding Snow Storm in New York when you were driving the Choralaires Bus! The heat going out on the bus on our Oklahoma Trip! You were Awesome! Great job keeping us safe! Miss you and all the friends I made there!
Coincidentally, I recently reflected on this very question while crafting my purpose statement for grad school. It might come as a shock to anyone who had a role in my education at CRC (2005-2007) that I’m pursuing a masters in women’s ministry. I was, how shall I say it...strong-willed🙂 When I arrived on the campus of Crowley’s Ridge College in the fall of 2005, I was clueless. My reasons for attending a private two-year school were limited: (1) I wanted to play softball, (2) I wanted to be near a boy. These are two of the most ridiculous reasons to attend a college, hence my cluelessness, and something I’ve reflected upon often with disdain. I’ve since came to the realization that my time at Crowley’s Ridge was one of the most pivotal in my life. This time in any young person’s life is important because it’s the time when they decide whether attending church--and essentially, serving God, is worth their time. At CRC, I had structure. I had rules. I had Biblical teaching, professors and peers who cared about me, and despite my shotty church attendance at the time, I owe all that structure (character building) to the strong foundation built in my early adulthood which carried me through until I could commit fully to God, and fulfilling His promises on my life. A huge thanks to everyone who played a role. Coaches Steve Cremeens, James Scott, Cindy Henry, Michael Meredith, Chris Perkins, and Paul MacFadden; Mrs. Nancy, David Goff, Ricky Hale, Mom and Pop Ellis, Sherylette Winn, and SO MANY more.
CRC was the perfect fit for me. I will be forever grateful for the experiences I had there. Inspiringly beautiful campus. Genuine people. Memorable chorus trips. Lifelong friends.
I loved the family atmosphere. 75/76 was a year that holds many happy memories.
I will always be so thankful for the year I was there (‘75-76). I not only grew up mentally but spiritually also. Every teacher had such a great influence on me. Loving memories.....
My memories, my friends. And the beauty of the campus.
I loved the two years that I spent at CRC....'74-76.
I'm thankful for the care and devotion that the staff and faculty has shown my daughter over her time there. I have not always agreed with some of the rules or curriculum, but I have always known she was safe and cared for there. That's always been more important to me than anything else!
When it comes to CRC I am most thankful for all of the wonderful friends I made there. I don't get to see many of them off line but I always try to make time for those I do get the chance to hangout with offline. Friends for life!
I'm thankful they let me in on their Haiti trip even though I'm not in college yet 😂
i am most thankful that there were dedicated men & women who made the sacrifice to teach at CRC & influence students in such a positive spiritual way!
Thankful that my son gets to attend a great college.
