Homecoming 2008 -- 100 Years

It is really good to see all the former students back for Homecoming though you begin to feel old when it seems like this past May when a student graduated by he declares he is in his third year of law school. I think both Alex Kornfeld and I think that time is flying.

And, Jen Crocker Roberts spent two years in the business world and is now pursuing a Masters of Arts in Teaching at Converse. She is going into early childhood and here Dr. Joe Rubinstein is showing her a couple of math tricks to work with the young students.

And, Stryker, the mascot, was intriguing to Dr. Joe and Dr.Katie's young ones.

There was a great deal going on over the weekend with sports center stage as baseball, girls soccer and guys soccer all had games. The basketball teams played some alumni games and I probably missed somewhere else. We did hear again that the Landmark in Hartsville is not a place anyone wants to stay. And, The Spencers were really great at the Coker-Hartsville Concert Series on Friday night.

This was also the weekend that the Hartsville - The Art of Good Living marketing campaign was launched.
