Head football coach MIKE KETCHUM ’78 has decided to accept a new role as an assistant to the athletic director, it was announced Dec. 29. In his new role, Ketchum will oversee the operation of the Quakers’ home athletic contests. He will coordinate game personnel, security and site preparation. Guilford sponsors 16 varsity teams, including 13 that compete on campus.
Ketchum, a 1978 Guilford graduate and former athletic director, leaves the football post after compiling a 53-85 record in 14 years on the Quakers’ sidelines, 27-49 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference contests. Guilford went 1-9 in 2004 and finished sixth in the ODAC with a 1-5 record.
“Mike has been a valuable member of Guilford’s athletic staff since 1988 and guided the athletics department and the football team through many transitions,” Athletic Director MARION KIRBY said. “We appreciate Mike’s meaningful impact on the lives of many student-athletes and look forward to his continued leadership within the department.”
Ketchum ranks second on Guilford’s career football-coaching wins list and enjoyed the second-longest tenure among the school’s 21 head football coaches. He received the ODAC Coach of the Year Award in 1991 and 1997 after guiding the Quakers to league titles both seasons. Both teams won a school-record eight games and are two of the four 8-2 units to which Ketchum contributed. The 1994 club went 8-2 and spent most of the season ranked among the top teams in the NCAA Division III South Region. Ketchum was a lineman on Guilford’s 8-2 team in 1975.
Last fall, CHRISTIAN ADAMS ’05 became Guilford’s seventh All-America selection under Ketchum. This year, the senior punter became the second two-time football All-American in school history. First Team All-America CHRIS McKINNEY ’03 led the nation in punt returns and set the NCAA record (all divisions) with five punt returns for a touchdown in 2001. Guilford student-athletes amassed 71 first-or-second team all-conference football selections in Ketchum’s tenure. McKinney and JUNIOR LORD ’98 have enjoyed successful professional football careers since leaving Guilford.
After joining Guilford’s staff as an assistant football coach in 1988, Ketchum took over for CHARLES FORBES in 1991 when Forbes took the head football post at NCAA Division II Lenoir-Rhyne. Ketchum’s first season marked the Quakers’ first year of ODAC and NCAA Division III membership. (Prior to 1991, Guilford awarded athletic scholarships and competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.) He served as Guilford’s head football and athletics director from 1996-2002 and increased the athletic department’s prominence in campus planning.
Kirby said a national search is underway for Ketchum’s successor. He hopes to have the new coach in place by February. The new coach inherits 48 student-athletes, including this year’s 25 rookies, for the 2005 campaign.

Guilford College Meal Plan Exemption Process
Spring 2005 Semester
Guilford is a residential college requiring all full-time students to live and eat on campus. This policy allows for few, if any, exceptions. Those who request an exemption for the college’s board plan (meals) may complete the Meal Plan Exemption Request Form. Please note that meal exemption requests will only be considered for those who demonstrate a critical need to be off the meal plan and provide appropriate documentation.
Exemption requests are reviewed once each semester. Applications for spring semester will be reviewed between Jan. 5 and Jan. 18, 2005, and must be received no later than Jan. 18, 2005. Notification will be given by Jan. 25, 2005. Applications received after the deadline(s) will not be considered until the next semester. NOTE: Application for exemption is not guaranteed and the total room, board and fees are due by the scheduled payment deadline(s) as outlined by the Office of Student Accounts. Failure to make payment may result in a student’s withdrawal from the college or inability to register for classes or housing.
The meal exemption process is as follows:
1. Once documentation is received in the office for campus life, the director of student health and/or a dietician will review the request and speak to the student’s physician and/or dietician (if necessary).
2. Individual appointments will be scheduled for the student to meet with a dietician if necessary. The student will be contacted through their Guilford College email account regarding the scheduling of the appointment.
3. The dietician will make a recommendation regarding the ability of the food service program to meet the special dietary needs of the student requesting the meal plan exemption. The recommendation may be that the food service program:
• can meet most of the needs and will make special arrangements for those it cannot meet, in which case the student will not be exempt from the meal plan, or
• cannot meet the special dietary needs of the student requesting the meal plan exemption in which case the student will be exempt from the meal plan and the student’s tuition, room, board and fee charges will be adjusted.
The student will be notified via e-mail regarding their exemption and whether it has been approved, denied or requires follow up with the physician/dietician.

MARY LOUISE “MEL” BRINGLE ’75, chair of humanities and professor of philosophy and religion at Brevard College in western North Carolina, will be invited speaker for Guilford’s 168th commencement exercises May 7.
Bringle will join President KENT CHABOTAR and students as speakers during the commencement ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on the quadrangle lawn. Guilford’s Convocation and Celebrations Committee received invited speaker nominations and recommended Bringle to President Chabotar. The senior class will select the student speakers during the spring semester.
“As an outstanding liberal arts college educator and alumna of the college, Mel Bringle can relate to the Guilford experience in so many ways. It is fitting that we welcome her back to speak to our graduates on their special day and as the college turns its sights toward a Year of Spirit and Spirituality in 2005-06,” said President Chabotar. “In her teaching, scholarship and community service, she has promoted the college’s core values of community, diversity, equality, excellence, integrity, justice and stewardship. I am pleased that she has accepted our invitation to be invited commencement speaker.”
Bringle has taught at Brevard since 2000 and was selected Faculty Member of the Year for 2003-04 by the Student Government Association. She taught at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, N.C., from 1983-2000 and held a Jefferson-Pilot Distinguished Professorship beginning in 1989.
Her scholarly work bridges the disciplines of theology and psychology in a contemporary approach to the seven deadly sins. Her books, Despair: Sickness or Sin? and The God of Thinness: Gluttony and Other Weighty Matters, were published by Abingdon Press, and she is presently writing a book on envy.
Winner of hymnwriting competitions internationally, she was recognized by The Hymn Society of the U.S. and Canada as emerging hymn text writer in 2002. Her first single-author collection of hymn texts, Joy and Wonder, Love and Longing, was published by GIA Publications in 2002.
Bringle earned a bachelor’s degree in French and religion from Guilford and was a Dana Scholar graduating with departmental honors and high honors. She earned a doctorate in theological studies from Emory University in 1984 and earned the Excellence in Teaching Award from the graduate school in 1983. She was an auditing student in Christianity and culture at the Institut de Sciences et de Théologie des Religions Institut Catholique de Paris in 1975-76.
Besides Guilford presidents and students, previous speakers at Guilford’s commencement in recent years have included faculty members CAROLYN BEARD WHITLOW, JEFF JESKE and DICK MORTON; Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund; M. L. CARR ’73, former NBA player, coach and administrator; MARY ANN AKERS ’91, a national broadcast journalist; and CHRISTOPHER BENFEY ’77, a professor at Mount Holyoke College.
