Student Spotlight: Zeke Workman
We often hold in our minds two perceptions of Emory & Henry that, on the surface, seem contradictory: Emory & Henry as a charming rural college, focused on excellence yet isolated from a prodigiously fluctuating world and Emory & Henry as a conduit to a vast universe of ideas, diversity and opportunities. Those of us who know and love this institution well, know clearly how both notions are consistent and, in fact, define perhaps what is most distinctive about this place.

Monica Halsey Shew ’07 Monica and Daniel Shew won the Historic Preservation Award for Solar Hill, from the City of Bristol. Monica is a double alum of Emory & Henry, finishing a master’s in community and organizational leadership in 2011. She has recently left a long career in banking to work full-time for their property business, which encompasses 17 units in downtown Bristol. Their focus is to restore vacant houses and homes headed for the wrecking ball. All their houses were built before 1925 and have been made back into beautiful updated homes for tenants in hopes of creating a better community through restoration and maintenance. After living in a large 1904 Edwardian home on Solar Hill, the couple managed to get the King House at the top of the hill. It is said to be the oldest and most historically significant structure in Bristol City. They plan to live there with their four year old son, once the interior is complete. The Historic Preservation Award Committee for the city of Bristol, Virginia invites nominations for the Historic Preservation Award. The purpose of this award program is to recognize and honor property owners and developers who engage in preservation projects within the city’s five historic districts: Euclid Avenue, Solar Hill, Virginia Hill, Bristol Downtown Commercial, and Bristol Warehouse Historic Districts. Properties within Bristol, Virginia city limits, but outside these historic districts, are eligible for a Citywide Historic Preservation Award.
