“You must get up, rise up, and focus and when somebody asks where you went to college, you stand tall and say- Emory & Henry- in the prosperous, life giving, music shaking, soul quaking, intellect making hills of southwest Virginia in Appalachia where America found her voice because unto these hills, through them, and over them came YOU.”
