Holiday festivities at Baptist Bible College and Seminary began December 2 with the traditional Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the Jackson Hall rotunda. Dr. John DeLeon of Clarks Summit donated the 14-foot pine. The tree was cut down and set up by Andy Harkleroad, Aaron Harkleroad and Tony Laidlaw. It was decorated by Sarah Carter and Pam Harkleroad. BBC and S President Jim Jeffery and his wife Bert hosted the event as they have for the past seven years. The celebration also included carol singing and refreshments for the BBC staff, faculty and students who attended.
