Hyles-Anderson College / Mr. Blackwell
« on: March 31, 2019, 02:27:56 AM »
Not Troy...but can I now admit that the old Kiss song "Mr. Blackwell" went through my mind EVERY CLASS with him?  Couldn't say anything to anyone at the time...

Anyone know anything about his where abouts?

Hyles-Anderson College / Phil Sallie

Is that guy still alive?

I went to HAC married.  Very young but married.  I realize I should have taken more control of my job/housing search but...

He promised me over the phone to have a job that pays $10 an hour and have an apartment lined up for me.  We spoke a few times on the phone.  "Don't worry, just get here".

Walk into his office and he hands me the classifieds.  Worthless piece of crap.

When Bro. Hyles would have him pray (in the staff rotation), he'd have people stand if Phil had helped them get a job.  I was always hoping for him to say, "Ok, if he turned you away for a job please stand".   I imagine hundreds more would stand for that one.

I saw no thread dedicated to him so I thought it apropos to start one.

Hyles-Anderson College / Misrepresentations to Impressionable Students
« on: January 07, 2019, 02:00:46 PM »
There were some statements made during my time at HAC that I have come to resent.  I'm also glad I was around people who point out some realities when I was there.

How about Ray Young?  "I'm at the college at 4am".  Didn't tell you that he was in bed before the sun went down, staff to take care of his tasks, and took naps in his office during the day.   There was always an implication that the less sleep you had the more spiritual you were.  Jesus took naps.

How about Larry Smith?  "I donate my salary back to the college".  No background whatsoever.  Owns a construction business that's making him pretty good money.  Why not state this?  Speaking of him, is he still around?

How about Pete Cowling?  "I took a $XXX,XXX paycut to go from UT to HAC".  Owned trailer parks that gave him a pretty good income.  Side income isn't a bad thing.  Just be honest.

Darrell Moore?  "You think you're busy now, wait until you're in full-time ministry".  Never a more discouraging and FALSE statement in my time there.  I was ready to quit that day.  Ministry has never been even half as busy as I was in college.

I realize these are somewhat petty, but they have always bothered me.  It's not quite lying, but pretty close.  Why set yourself up as something you're not?  Then you have 18-22 year-old students running around trying to replicate your "faith" and failing miserably because they lack the whole story.

What are yours?

I'm trying to figure out what happened.  Bob Gray, SR started a new online college.  Still lives in Longview.  Dave Baker's on staff.  BGII is the chancellor of the old TBC. 

Online college:

Was it started "under" a church?
Is there a father/son rift?
Is there a lawsuit involved somewhere?


Hyles-Anderson College / Old Classmates

When lurking old site, I remember a "Where They At?" thread.  Can't find it here.  Might not be searching correctly.  I can find the old site's page asking about a couple of these.

Was wondering if anyone knows anything about these:

Fabian Alzate
David Fink.  Last I heard he was here:
Tom Manbeck.  Hard to tell if he's pastoring in Terre Haute or not.  Is he still married?
