GRACEVILLE (BCF)—Last month, students at The Baptist College of Florida sunk their teeth into a variety of goodies prepared specially for them by BCF First Lady Ruth Ann Kinchen and her cadre of special cooks.

BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen made an announcement during a February chapel service that it was Cookie Day, a day created in the fall 2009 semester by his wife, Ruth Ann Kinchen. 

Cookie Day is a day that occurs once a semester where the BCF First Lady and other volunteers bake and deliver special goodies, homemade cookies, and brownies to the campus for students. This semester Barbara Hammock, Jan Cunningham, Gail Floyd, and Dawn Freeman assisted Ruth Ann Kinchen in preparing for Cookie Day. The ladies worked hard to provide enough cookies to feed all of the students, as well as many of the faculty and staff members. 

In order to ensure no one was left out of the joys of Cookie Day, special bags of sugar and gluten free treats also were provided. 

Students away from home have responded positively each year to the annual event, according to the news release, that says, “someone loves them enough to do something selfless for them.” Ruth Ann Kinchen provides students with a “sense of home” by baking cookies, coordinating fundraisers, decorating the campus for holidays, and overall reflecting Christ by reminding students “they are loved and prayed for often,” the release said.
