Only 1 Dog Today

Unfortunately with the heat index predictions for today, our good friend Shelby can’t do her visit. Her coat is too thick for the heat :(

But, we’ll have our new friend Gunner today! He’s a yellow lab mix and he’s excited to meet us! Come on down to the 1st floor alcove from 10:30 – 11:30 to meet him.

We’ll adjust the FABULOUS signs that Stacy did – she’s the newest member of Outreach and she’s already making a splash with our new liquid chalkboard signs :)

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?

Welcome back, Mocs!

Over the summer, we’ve been hard at work acquiring new materials for Special Collections, including the papers of Dennis Haskins, AKA Principal Richard Belding from Saved by the Bell. Known for his catchphrase “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?”, Haskins played the role of Mr. Belding in Good Morning Miss Bliss (19781989), Saved by the Bell (1989-1993), and Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1993-2000) for more than a decade.

Before Haskins was a star in Hollywood, he was a very busy Moc. Haskins reported for the student paper, acted in the Drama Club and Harlequins, served as entertainment chairman of the Student Government Association entertainment chairman, and distinguished himself as a member of the Blue Key Honor Fraternity and the Raven’s Society. In fact, Dennis was a founding member of the Harlequins, a community theater group directed by Dorothy Hackett Ward. Not only did Haskins perform in plays, he also worked as a stage manager and authored original plays, including Movement without Words , written “for the students, by the students, and free.” Dennis did not only devote himself to scholarly and acting pursuits. He also spent his time managing the local band Overland Express, who regularly performed at Yesterdays.

As the Student Government Association’s entertainment chairman, Dennis organized and promoted events for students like movies and concerts. In his SGA role, Dennis brought Ike and Tina Turner to UTC on April 7, 1973. Haskins also leveraged his membership in the Blue Key Honor Fraternity to organize an annual basketball game dubbed “Freaks vs. Fuzz” which pitted the UTC “Freaks” against the “Fuzz,” a team comprised of members of the community like the city commissioners. The proceeds of the event funded two scholarships to support the children of UTC and Chattanooga police officers. In addition to his student government, acting, and academic pursuits, Haskins was a member of the basketball. In fact, Haskins used some of the organizational skills that served him so well as the SGA entertainment chairman to get important Mocs basketball games aired on local television station WTVC 9.

Since his UTC days, Haskins has gone on to have a successful career as an actor in film and television. He started his role as Mr. Belding with Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which aired on the Disney Channel in 1988. The next year, NBC renamed the show Saved by the Bell. Known for the catchphrase “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?”, Haskins continued to play the role of Principal Belding until 2000 in Saved by the Bell: The New Class, long after the original wrapped in 1993. After retiring the role of Richard Belding, Haskins appeared in several movies and television shows including It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and A Million Ways to Die in the West.
