Bob Goodlatte gave the keynote address at Virginia Tech’s 132nd Founders Day celebration last April. Bob is a six-term representative of Virginia’s 6th Congressional District…. Charlie Grosvenor and Nort Virgien gave a class-sponsored presentation on their animation work at Reunion in June. Reflecting later on the weekend, Charlie wrote, “The highlight, selfishly, was the talk Nort and I gave. When I stood in front of those people I looked out and saw warm faces. Familiar faces. Faces a little bit older than when I had last seen them, but faces familiar nonetheless. I felt acceptance and interest from them. Immediately and throughout. It made the talk incredibly comfortable for me, like talking to family members, brothers and sisters and cousins, over a holiday gathering. I felt very loved. That may sound trite and sappy, but it is true. I shall remember and treasure that feeling and the memories of that moment forever. I would like to thank each and every person there for giving me such a great gift.”
