Day 4: Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Not as busy so far today!

Attended a great reading of the speech Christopher Reeve gave at the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, just a year after his horseback riding accident that changed “The Man of Steel” forever.

Freshman Clint Mooney talked about his own experiences of being paralyzed after an October 2009 car crash, where he flipped his truck and ejected due to not wearing a seat belt. His dad, Farmville Police Chief Doug Mooney, talked about being a parent of someone disabled and how that has changed his outlook.

Then, over 20 students, faculty, and staff, including President Patrick Finnegan, read portions of Reeve’s speech. Then Ryan, a community member, spoke of civil rights not being over and led a march down Brock Commons with the chant, “Civil Rights NOW!”

Very powerful. Look for pictures of the speakers on Facebook later on!

Wrote LP meeting minutes for the first time. I hope I did a good job!

Finished my scholarship appreciation letter on pretty stationery. Planning to make this stationery permanent! Thanks to Jamie for printing it out for me! Note to self: Need to go get printer ink ASAP.

Had lunch with lovely Caitlyn! Mmmm ciabatta bread šŸ™‚

Meeting with Emily Jessee, our awesome AST Educational Consultant!

Finally hanging up my American Landscapes calendar and green & gold cork boards on the walls later.

Then off to Lancaster to drop off said scholarship letter, then my last first class in Grainger, my second home.

Excited to start Young Adult Lit with 14 amazing novels!

Dinner with Jessica S. hopefully; then talking to the boy later ā™„.

I love my life! šŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!

All the best, Laura Beth šŸ™‚
