Mike Downey (’85) went to an E&H football game recently. But he didn’t go alone.
He brought along 10 high school boys so that they might get a look at his old college.
Mike teaches Sunday school to these students so he has many opportunities to give them something important to think about. This past weekend it was focused on thinking about college.
Mike’s concern for these kids is evident, even through his predictable curmudgeon response. “They’re teenagers…so most of the time they make me crazy. But I’m also really proud of them.”
His pride increased when on the Monday following the Wasps’ game, they all wore their brand new E&H t-shirts to school in Galax.
