Our campus is beautiful!! I love experiencing all four seasons and am so excited when the transition takes place with each season. Right now we are moving from spring into summer and everything is so green and the flowers, especially the rhododendron are exceptionally brilliant.
Today as I walked across campus, from the Library to the Cannon Student Center, I couldn’t help but stop, admire, and attempt to capture the beauty of the campus. I stood behind the Edgar Tufts, founder of Lees-McRae College, statue and remembered that this is the first spring that “he” (yes, I am talking about a statue, but really about who the statue represents) has experienced in a long time. The Edgar Tufts statue was dedicated in September 2011, so “he” has recently experienced fall and winter, but not spring and summer…yet.
So, I paused and took his picture. I wanted to share this special moment with you. He seems happy to be here, don’t you think? Welcome home Edgar
