In our packet of information for our MTAV stay, we found this:
This was the schedule for us to follow for the time we were there.
Everything was planned for us beforehand using that Wizard of Oz theme, as I mentioned earlier.
After our first meal together, we had the pleasure of listening to one of the current professors of the college.
Dr, Jerry Jones actually grew up in Glade Spring, a small community not far from the campus of Emory and Henry College. This book includes his family history and his journeys before he finally returned to the area and became part of the faculty at Emory and Henry.
It was particularly meaningful for me to have a chance to talk with him, as he has memories of several people who were at Emory and Henry while I was a student there.
A personal note here - I was a junior at Clinton High School in the fall of 1956 when court-ordered integration affected the school, so much of what Dr. Jones includes in his book is familiar to me. I was thrilled to be able to buy a copy of the book, and I will be enjoying reading it in the near future.
We were in for a treat after his talk to us. He is quite a good pianist, and we enjoyed hearing him play, particularly "Amazing Grace," which we joined along in singing!
The week-end is upon us. How does it look for you? There is rain in the forecast here, so that doesn't sound promising for outdoor activities. We need the rain, though, as we are still behind our yearly average.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
