Presenter Tatiana Boelen ('20) gave a virtual tour of the Poe Museum in Richmond.

E&H COA Road Trip was a Blast!

When the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center put their “College for Older Adults” (COA) online, they quickly changed the name to “College for Online Adults,” changed the age limits, and invited anyone who wished to participate. They also invited Emory & Henry to be a presenter, offering events in the style of our summer alumni college, More Than A Vacation.

The “E&H Road Trip” ran for three semesters, made 18 stops, and enlisted a ton of wonderful presenters to whom the E&H Alumni Office is very grateful.

Topics ranged from Bugs with Dr. Kadie Britt (’13), to Haunted Southwest Virginia locations with Tonia Kestner (’01), to the infamous Georgia Tann with the author of the book on Georgia’s life story, Barbara Bisantz-Raymond, to the cave systems of Kentucky with Dave Foster (’82). With more than 400 engagements*, the audience included many alumni and community members.

One of the COA E&H Road Trip presenters was Tatiana Boelen (’20) who gave us a virtual tour of the Poe Museum in Richmond and told us of the mysteries surrounding Edgar Allen Poe’s fascinating life and death.

*Engagements are event attendees plus views of recorded events. These events were not recorded.
