Emory & Henry College was among nine partners recently awarded the College Partnership Laboratory School Planning Grant for $200,000 from the Virginia Department of Education in February. It is expected to launch during the 2023-2024 academic year.
Newly Commissioned Cadets
The College held its fourth contracting ceremony in April and recognized cadets Andreia Langley and Antonio Washington. The contracting ceremony indicated Langley and Washington had stated their oath to serve in the United States Army. Unlike non-contracted cadets, a contracted cadet is considered a military member and will gain the rank of second lieutenant (2LT) upon graduation. Contracting is a vital part of a cadet’s journey through ROTC, as it shows commitment to being a future leader in the military.

Broady HonoredRead More
At the 175th annual Emory & Henry commencement ceremony, Arthur “Scrapper” Broady, ’70, was honored with the William and Martha DeFriece Award. The award is made annually by the Trustees of Emory & Henry College to an alumnus or faculty member who has made some outstanding, worthwhile contribution to civilization or humanity. One of Broady’s most notable achievements is his creation of the “Friends of Copey.” Now in its tenth year, the Friends provides opportunities for E&H students to teach in Copey, Costa Rica, and for students in Copey to visit the U.S. each summer. Broady’s motto is: “Whatever I do, I want to make a difference.”
