Dear College Community,
We turned the corner and heard the first of several cheers along the parade route. It was a proud day for Davis & Elkins College! Lisa and I, along with our two miniature schnauzers, recently rode in the Mountain State Forest Festival Grand Feature Parade.
We were directly behind 17 of our international students who reside in Asia, Europe, South America and North America serving as flag bearers for their respective countries. We actually have five additional countries represented at the College that would add the continents of Africa and Australia had they been present at the parade. At one point along the route, I heard someone from the spectators yell out, "We love our international students!"
