Winter 2006 - Ferrum College
President
Winter, 2006
Dear Alumni and Friends,
A picture is worth a thousand words! The cover of this issue, plus
the many photos inside, says it all – the Earl G. Bud Skeens Jr.
Alumni Conference Center is now a reality! Franklin Hall has
become the dramatic center of activity for the entire campus community. From the elegant Virginia Room on the lower level, to the
mezzanine “café” overlooking the Atrium, to the beautiful Blue Ridge
Mountain Room with its sweeping views of the campus, the gathering spaces in the building flow gracefully from one room to the next,
accommodating a wide variety of student, faculty, staff, alumni and
community activities. The Virginia Room functions as a
faculty/staff/alumni lounge and dining space for up to 40, the Blue
Ridge Mountain Room can accommodate 250 for dining and receptions, the more intimate Black & Gold Grille features a cozy, publike atmosphere, and throughout the entire building there are seating nooks with comfortable sofas and chairs
where students can take a break, study or catch the latest news on the wide screen TV outside the Student
Leadership and Career Services offices.
Bud Skeen’s selfless generosity to Ferrum College, in conjunction with funds from the low interest USDA loan for
FerrumPLUS!, made possible the transformation of Franklin Hall from a utilitarian building into the stunning centerpiece of campus. The formal dedication of the Skeens Conference Center on November 3 was an inspiring
event. The remarks shared by those who knew Bud, including the words of our Board of Trustees Chair, Paul
Harris ’65, who was a student of Bud’s, were at once poignant and humorous and gave new insight into this very
accomplished yet humble human being. Faculty and staff also reminisced about Bud’s life and work at Ferrum,
where he dedicated 40 years to teaching and mentoring countless students.
We are truly blessed by the many alumni, friends and supporters of Ferrum College who, like Bud Skeens, live by
our motto, “Not Self, But Others.” At every Board meeting, our trustees have the wonderful charge of approving
new endowed scholarships, thereby ensuring ongoing opportunities for success for our students. Because of your
support we continue to receive much needed bequests or gifts that enable us to fulfill our mission. We exist as an
institution of higher learning because of our visionary Methodist women founders, and the consistent and uplifting
encouragement and generosity of all of you, our dear friends. We wish you a happy and holy holiday season and
best wishes for the New Year!
Sincerely,
Jennifer L. Braaten
President

Ferrum Attracts New
Community Health Clinic
In June Ferrum College announced a partnership with TriArea Community Health Clinic to operate a new center
located in Ferrum. The initial site for the Ferrum
Community Health Clinic will be in the lower level of
Vaughn Chapel, including Fellowship Hall. Renovation of
the space is nearly complete, with a move-in target of early
winter. In the meantime the Richeson Health Center is
being used by Tri-Area for services.
The Ferrum Community Health Clinic will also provide a
tremendous educational opportunity through Tri-Area’s
expressed interest in exploring the involvement of Ferrum
College students in internships and field-based learning at
the Center. Ferrum is now moving on to the next level of
service for the College and the community by partnering
with Tri-Area, a non-profit healthcare provider based in the
community of Laurel Fork in Patrick County. Tri-Area has
20 years of experience in providing comprehensive, quality
health care and will take on the management role of
Ferrum’s facility. Tri-Area Community Health Clinic is a
partner in the Mt. Rogers Medication Assistance Program
for the Mt. Rogers Planning District.

FERRUM MAGAZINE
“A health care facility has been a major part of our community and economic development discussions for the past 18
months,” said President Jennifer Braaten. “We have conducted surveys and community meetings that indicated this
is a #1 priority.”
The clinic will house physicians, mental health professionals, diagnostic and x-ray technology, and a full service pharmacy. While Ferrum College will continue to place an
emphasis on student health services, the entire community
will also be able to use this facility.
The Ferrum Community Health Clinic is a part of a broader
community revitalization plan announced by Ferrum
College last December. Since then, Ferrum has created an
advisory group entitled CommunityPLUS! (after Ferrum’s
FerrumPLUS! on-campus initiatives) and received a grant
from the Tobacco Indemnification and Community
Revitalization Commission for work at the Blue Ridge
Institute’s Farm Museum.
The announcement was featured in Access 2006, a newsletter for the Virginia Primary Care Association.

Ferrum's Chef Bo Named
"Certified Executive Chef"
Ferrum College's favorite chef, Timothy "Bo" Bernard, has a new internationally
recognized title: Certified Executive Chef, the second highest level in the
American Culinary Federation. It has taken Bernard 11 years to achieve this
after beginning his original apprenticeship in September of 1995. Chef "Bo" is
one of only ten Certified Executive Chefs in the extended area including
Roanoke , Martinsville and the New River Valley. Bernard was subject to a
written and practical exam as well as accumulated points in competition, job
experience, and various certified courses. The practical exam included a 3 hour
test proctored by two executive chefs and a Master chef. Bernard had to prepare 4 appetizers, salad, and entree courses from specific ingredients given by
the federation. Bernard was judged on nutritional make up of the dish, taste,
color, aroma, creativity, culinary skills, organization, pairing of foods, sanitation, and time management.

Ferrum Honors Big Daddy
Ferrum College held a celebratory weekend Sept. 15-16 to honor
former football coach Hank Norton on his induction into the
Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. The weekend's activities featured a
reunion of the Class of 1966, a special ceremony during halftime
of the Ferrum-Bridgewater football game, a reception following
the game, and a celebration to honor Norton's VSHOF induction
in the new Blue Ridge Mountain Room in upper Franklin Hall.
During the halftime celebration, the College unveiled a bust of
Coach Norton, which will eventually find its new home in the
Hank Norton Athletic Center. The bust was commissioned by
Ferrum alum Ed George ’68. Coach Norton’s bust was completed
by noted sculptor Gino Cavicchioli, whose artworks are owned by
such famous people as Mikhail Gorbachev, Former General
Secretary of the Soviet Union and Winner of the 1990 Nobel Peace
Prize; George Bush, former President of the United States; and
Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of England.

FERRUM MAGAZINE
Norton coached at Ferrum from 1960 until 1993, amassing an
impressive 244-77-11 college football career coaching record, and
led the Panthers to College's first-ever national title in any sport
when his 1965 football team won the National Junior College
Athletic Association (NJCAA) football championship. The
Panthers would go on to win three more titles in 1968, 1974 and
1977. Ferrum was also national runner-up in 1966. When
Ferrum made the switch from junior college to NCAA Division III
competition in 1985, Norton guided the Panthers to the NCAA
playoffs in 1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990. Ferrum won the South
region title in 1988 and 1989, both years advancing to the national
semifinals. Norton earned three NJCAA Coach of the Year honors
and was named Coastal Conference Coach of the Year six times.
In 1988, he was named NCAA Division III Coach of the Year by
Football News and College Division Coach of the Year by Eastman
Kodak. Norton coached 46 All-Americans during his career, and
42 of his former players signed contracts to play professional football.
The athletic department welcomed five new employees this year, while two
others switched to new roles. Bobby James, who has served 15 years as a
volunteer assistant football coach, has taken on a paid assistant position
with the Panthers. Rod Baker, assistant men’s soccer coach the past two
years, was named interim men’s soccer coach following the departure of
John Faircloth. James and Baker are both Ferrum graduates.
Other new faces include assistant athletic trainers Michaela Kelso and
Justin Anlauf, assistant baseball coach Anthony Everman, assistant football
coach Jim Hickam, and cross country coach and assistant men’s basketball
coach Robert Knotts. Karen Harvey joined the staff last spring and will
serve as head women’s lacrosse coach and assistant athletic trainer.

Cox Earns 2006 Don Scalf
Award from USA South
Ferrum College softball standout Kim Cox has been named one

Cox finds time to help with the College's Admissions
Orientation Team, and assists with youth softball clinics
through the Bedford County Parks and Recreation Department.
Cox is the daughter Kathy and Worth Cox of Gladys, Virginia,
and a 2003 graduate of William Campbell High School. She initially enrolled at Longwood University in the fall of 2003, and
then transferred to Ferrum in January of 2004. The College

Celebrating
FerrumPLUS!
The “plus” in FerrumPLUS!, the bold initiative to improve campus
facilities, stands for “Project Leading to Undergraduate Success,” and
it’s hard not to miss the success already achieved. The campus now
features a redesigned Franklin Hall, transformed into a multi-level student and alumni center. The expanded facility has already debuted the
Earl G. “Bud” Skeens Jr. Alumni Conference Center, sports and
Internet cafés, new offices and dramatic exterior enhancements. Also
included in the FerrumPLUS! projects are the renovation of the historic Beckham and Roberts halls. Beckham was re-opened with a
redesigned, state-of-the-art classroom-focused interior in the fall of
2005 and Roberts is partially open to students for select residential use.
FerrumPLUS! was primarily funded with a one of the largest USDA
loans of its type for higher education and the largest ever given to a
single institution in Virginia. The Skeens Alumni Conference Center
was made possible by a generous donation from Ferrum faculty member, coach and friend, the late Professor “Bud” Skeens. FerrumPLUS2,
the construction of the second new residence hall, is now underway
with completion set for Fall of 2007.

One of the most attractive new elements to

Ed George ’68
2006 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient
Since graduating from Ferrum Junior College in 1968, Ed
George has devoted his energy and talents to giving his all
to his family, to his community, and to his alma mater. His
passion for and commitment to Ferrum began in his first
days on campus and remains faithful some forty years
later.
As a student at E.C. Glass High School in Lynchburg, Ed
already displayed the leadership qualities and steadfast
character that would drive his future success as an athlete
and a businessman. He was selected to the All Western
District Football Team, set a new state record in the shot
put, and was an outstanding track and field athlete. His
high school principal highly recommended Ed to Ferrum
Coach Hank Norton and it was obvious that he would be a
good fit for Ferrum. His hometown has since honored him
with an induction into the Lynchburg Sports Hall of Fame.
After Ferrum, Ed was awarded a football scholarship to
Wake Forest University where he experienced much success both on and off the field. He was selected to the All
Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football Team and as
a Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. In
1969, he was elected co-captain of the football team and
played in the North/South All-Star College Football Game.
Omicron Delta Kappa, a national collegiate leadership fraternity, invited him to join their ranks.
Upon graduation in 1972, Ed became a fourth round draft
pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers professional football team.
In his four years in the National Football League, he would
also play with the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Colts.
He also spent seven years in the Canadian Football League
14 FERRUM MAGAZINE
with teams in Hamilton and Montreal. A superb player, Ed
started ten out of eleven seasons and was awarded numerous
All-Pro honors for his accomplishments in football.
Ed enjoyed similar success as a businessman, where he pursued a new calling as the managing director and owner of the
Manning-Napier Financial Advisors firm in Columbus, OH.
During his tenure, the business was an eight billion dollar
firm. In this role he embraced the opportunity to manage
employee profit sharing and pension plans as it gave him the
opportunity to directly impact the lives of others in a meaningful way.
Ed George has never forgotten his time at Ferrum and his
devotion has been recognized on several occasions. In 1994,
he was inducted into the inaugural Ferrum College Sports
Hall of Fame Class. He has served Ferrum as a past member
of the College’s Board of Trustees where his business success
brought great insights and leadership to the group.
In 2005, he was bestowed with the Canadian Football
League’s highest honor with an induction into the CFL Hall
of Fame.
Ed and his wife Rose Marie reside in Scottsville, VA. He has
two children, Courtney and Michael. Michael and his wife
Mary have two sons, Brock and Cole.
Ed George, with his constant dedication to “Not Self, But
Others”, is a model of selfless service to family, community,
and alma mater. Ferrum College is pleased to honor him
with its 2006 Distinguished Alumni Award.
Col. James Stanley ’48
2006 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient
Ferrum Junior College alumnus and Ferrum native Lt.
Col. James L. Stanley ’48 answered the call to serve his
country in what would later be regarded as some of the
most pivotal and challenging times in our history.
Stanley’s passion for flight drove him to enlist in the
Air Force where he trained in flight school as a navigator and bombardier. He was later deployed to Korea
where on February 19, 1952, Stanley’s plane was shot
down over the mountains of North Korea. After days’
long exposure to frigid, sub-zero temperatures, Stanley
was captured by Korean soldiers and held prisoner for
the following 19 months. He was freed in 1953 in a
prisoner of war exchange. He was honored for his service with both a Prisoner or War Medal and a Korean
Service Medal.
Upon his return home, Stanley earned a bachelor’s
degree in management technology from Syracuse
University. From 1966-1969, he served as commander
of the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at Duke
University. At Duke, he also had the opportunity to
share his love of flight with students in his role as professor of aerospace.
His military service would again be honored with a
Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star Medal
with the V Devise, the Air Medal, and the National
Defense Service Medal.
DAA
Stanley continued to fly with the Strategic Air Command
(SAC) until his retirement from the Air Force in 1971.
Upon his retirement, he welcomed a new career direction by accepting a position as chief of the Georgia
Bureau of Public Transportation. During this time, he
attended Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA
where he studied intermodal transportation. His successful career with the bureau spanned 23 years. He
retired from his second career in 1994.
Celebrating 56 years of marriage, Stanley and his wife
Polly maintain residences in Ferrum and in Jeckyll
Island, GA. Stanley was honored by his hometown as the
recipient of the Rocky Mount Rotary Club’s Patriot
Award for 2005. He is a member of St. James United
Methodist Church, the Ferrum College Alumni
Association, and is a volunteer fireman. While in GA,
Stanley devotes time to the local Rotary Club and
Masonic Lodge.
The Stanleys have three children: James, Marsha, and
Brian. They are also the proud grandparents of five
grandchildren.
In recognition of his selfless dedication to family, country, and community, Ferrum College is pleased to honor
him with its 2006 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Samuel Oakey, III ’82
2006 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient
Roanoke native Samuel Goode Oakey, III, ’82 has led a
life dedicated to serving his community and bringing
comfort and compassion to those who have called on him
in their time of need.
After graduating from Patrick Henry High School in 1978,
Sammy enrolled at Ferrum where he became active in the
student-produced Iron Blade newspaper. Upon graduation
from Ferrum in 1982, he continued his education at
Atlanta based Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service
where he completed his studies in 1984.
Representing the fifth generation of the Oakey family in
the funeral profession, Sammy began his career with

All of the honorees exemplify the highest ideals of small college athletics,
sportsmanship, and the spirit of Ferrum College’s motto “Not Self, But Others”.
Dr. C. Ralph Arthur
Dr. C. Ralph Arthur served as Ferrum’s 7th president from 1954 to 1970. He was a graduate of the
University of Richmond and Duke University Divinity School. He was later awarded the honorary
degree of Doctor of Laws from the Univresity of Richmond. His ministry with the United Methodist
Church began with the Mount Pleasant Charge in the Portsmouth District and spanned the Virginia
Conference Credit Union, its Association of Educational Institutions, an its Methodist Rural Fellowship.
In 1954, Ferrum Junior College and many traditional college faced uncertain times. Dr. Arthur was
assigned to make a study of Ferrum and evaluate the role of the College in the region. Determined to
convince the Conference of Ferrum’s value, Dr. Arthur’s top priorities were property improvements
and bringing stature to the academic program.
Dr. Arthur is being honored today for the impact he made upon Ferrum’s athletic programs. In 1955,
Dr. Arthur contact Sam Webb, a young footbal couch at William Byrd High School in Vinton, and told
him of his ambition to establish an intercollegiate football program at Ferrum. His vision for the benefits he believed football could bring to the college was met by some faculty resistance. Undaunted, he
did not waiver in his determination to bring football to Ferrum. Webb accepted the role of head
football coach and togethre they forged a plan to feild the first team. Dr. Arthur drove to RandolphMacon College in Ashland and secured uniforms from their team’s leftover supply. Dr. Arthur
obtained other team necessities through his relentless door-to-door efforts. Noted as the “bigest
fan” of all of Ferrum’s athletic programs, his passion for sports inspired other to invest in the college
and forged relationships with constituents that had no prior relationship with the college.

A Glimpse of Ferrum’s
Impact in Serving the Public

ALUMNI PROFILE
Shelby Irving ’84
Shelby Irving is always there to answer the call of
those in need. Literally. Since becoming Danville’s
first female firefighter in 1987, Irving has devoted
her life to working directly with those in her community to educate, protect, and serve.
Upon graduation from Tunstall High School, Irving
came to Ferrum to play basketball. Carol Sandidge
introduced her to then basketball coach, Donna
Doonan, and “the rest was history.” In 1982, Irving
and her teammates won the AIAW State Basketball
Championship. She was also a member of the softball team, the Recreation Club, and enjoyed participating in intramurals. Well liked and admired by her
classmates, for two years Irving served as president
of Bassett Hall and also worked as a community
advisor.
After college, Irving took a part-time job with
Danville Parks and Recreation. A co-worker’s prodding about a vacant position with the Danville Fire
Department inspired her to apply for a job as a firefighter. The application process brought about a
series of written and psychological tests in addition
to a rigorous set of agility and endurance tests.
Determined to push herself through and prove that
she could make it as a firefighter, she excelled at the
tests and was offered a position.
Irving was ready for the challenge. To learn
Danville’s roads and hydrant locations, she took a
part-time job with Domino’s pizza. Shortly thereafter, she was driving the fire truck to calls herself.
She spent the next 16 years riding with Engine
Company 3 as a firefighter and EMT.
In April 2004, as a result of her years of dedication
and hard work, Irving was named Assistant Fire
Marshal for the City of Danville. In this role, she is
responsible for investigating fires, conducting
inspections and code enforcement, and approving
plan reviews for new construction.
When asked about her time as Assistant Fire
Marshall she shares, “I am highly motivated by the
people I work with at the Danville Fire Department,
my family, and my friends. The most satisfaction
comes from the children in the community. A smile
on a child’s face after sitting on a fire truck speaks
volumes, as does when a child knows how to stopdrop-and-roll correctly. I am most passionate about
teaching fire prevention. I love to talk about fire
safety and educating the public about being safe. I
feel that my calling is to help others.”
American Legion Post 1097 honored her with their
Firefighter of the Year award this past March. In
previous years, her community has thanked her by
naming her Danville Jaycees Outstanding Young
Firefighter, WAKG Celebrity of the Week, and the
Bank of America Neighborhood Champion
Firefighter.
Irving is a member of Jones Chapel Baptist Church
where she serves as finance secretary and youth
advisor. She has served on the steering committee
for National Night Out, a crime and drug prevention
event designed to generate support for local anticrime programs and to strengthen neighborhood
spirit and police/community partnerships. She is
also a community volunteer and the host of a local
television program called Fire Watch. She recently
coordinated a fund drive for a family that lost everything to a devastating fire.
“I feel that my
calling is to
help others.”
Still an active supporter of Ferrum, Irving serves her
alumni family as a member of the Alumni Board of
Directors and as a member of the Sports Hall of
Fame Committee. Irving remains close with her
Ferrum teammate Kathy Bocock ’86 and she served
as Bocock’s assistant basketball and softball coach
for 13 years at Averett University
Shelby Irving’s positive outlook, dedication to community, and dependability have guided her since her
early days at Ferrum. She is a true testament to
Ferrum’s motto, “Not Self, But Others.”

Larry Rogers ’77
Larry Rogers came to Ferrum with football in mind.
By his graduation two years later, he was poised to
lead on both the gridiron and in the classroom. After
being named “Mr. Ferrum” by faculty and staff for
his scholastic achievements, Rogers continued his
education at James Madison University. He made
Harrisonburg his home and became passionate
about the impact that could be made upon his community through social action and public service.
For 12 years, Rogers served the citizens of
Harrisonburg as a member of city council. On July
1, 2004, he was elected both as mayor of
Harrisonburg and was appointed by Gov. Mark
Warner’s to the James Madison University’s Board of
Visitors. During his time in office, Harrisonburg
experienced a boom in economic development, a
new high school was constructed to accommodate
the area’s growing population, and a revitalization
plan for downtown was formed.
When asked to reflect on his memories as mayor, he
fondly recalls, “Becoming the first black mayor of
the city of Harrisonburg was a major accomplishment in a city where only three percent of the population is black. Our city is one of the most outstanding cities in the Commonwealth of Virginia and God
has blessed me to play a major role in the growth
and development during the last 12 years. Our quality of life is second to none in the state of Virginia.
My first year as mayor, James Madison University’s
football team won the National Championship I-AA
Title. Being a former JMU football player after leaving Ferrum, it was fun being the mayor and having a
city-wide parade for the football team. Ferrum
College gave me the “right stuff” to be a leader in the
community in which I live and work. For this I will
always be grateful.”
Rogers remains devoted to serving the
Commonwealth however he can, “I am most passionate about helping people and trying to help
make life better for others. One of the greatest
accomplishments in my life has been to be the
founder of the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County
Boys and Girls Club. The club provides services and
support to children and families in our communities
and I have been blessed to bring this organization to
children and families in our area.”
Never forgetting his time at Ferrum, Rogers remains
grateful to the people that saw his potential and
promise early on as a student, “The experience of
playing football for Coach Norton has helped me to
become the leader that I am today. In playing football for Coach Norton, you learned that quitting was
not an option. He taught us that when you get
knocked down on the football field you get back up..
and in life when you get knocked down you get back
up as well. Mrs. Kathleen Holt also made a great
impact upon my life. She helped me to discover that
I was more than a football player. Coach Norton
required a study hall for us, and Mrs. Holt worked
with me for many hours. Many evenings Mrs. Holt
left her home to help me and others so that we
would become the best students possible.”
As Rogers considers his next path for service, it is
certain that he will carry the lessons learned from
Ferrum with him. Devoted to bringing the best
opportunities and outreach programs to those he
serves, Larry Rogers lives “Not Self, But Others”
every day.
“Ferrum gave me
the ‘right stuff ’
to be a leader in
the community
in which I live
and work.”

Hollie Hall Flynn ’94
Hollie Hall Flynn embraces adventure. Passionate
about helping others find their inner strength and
potential, she uses her talents as a vehicle for giving
back to her community and raising awareness for
social outreach.
In 1998, Flynn was training for her first marathon
when she took a substantial leap of faith. She had a
vision in mind for the path she wanted her life to
take and decided to leave her position as a development officer at a local college and enact her plan.
Several months later, and after competing in her
first marathon in Anchorage, Alaska to raise money
for the Leukemia Society, she returned home to
open a Curves for Women franchise. Flynn now
owns and operates three Curves for Women locations in the Roanoke Valley in Daleville, Salem, and
Hollins.
According to the Curves website, Curves is the
largest fitness franchise in the world with 10,000
locations worldwide. The franchise serves as the first
fitness and weight loss facility dedicated to providing affordable exercise and nutritional information
for women. Curves mission is “strengthening
women.”
Much like her Ferrum experience, Flynn values the
bond of community that her Curves family fosters.
Flynn radiates when she talks about the “power of
women” and how awe-inspired she is by what her
staff and Curves members have done to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Since 2001, they
have collected 30,000 lbs of groceries to be donated
to local food banks. In Salem, her members have
organized a “parade” down Main Street as they
deliver their collections to raise awareness for the
food bank’s needs. Every year, each establishment
hosts a major food drive and new members can join
without a service fee in exchange for the donation of
canned goods and essentials to the food bank.
An avid extreme sports enthusiast, Flynn took her
marathon experience to the next level and began
competing in off road ironman triathlons which consist of a 2.4 mile lake swim, 112 mile mountain bike
ride, and 26.2 mile trail run. In 2004, Flynn and
Ferrum alumnus Ronny Angell ’89 purchased
Odyssey Adventure Racing, a business that coordinates adventure races throughout the country. They
have a two year old daughter, Taylor, who will likely
grow up to share her parents’ enthusiasm for pushing themselves beyond their perceived limits and
barriers.
Flynn fondly remembers her time at Ferrum as “An
amazing experience. Ferrum felt right from the very
beginning. The sense of community and how that
affects you as a student is phenomenal. The impact
that Ferrum has and how the motto of “Not Self, But
Others” will change you develops over time.”
A plaque hung just over the doorway of her Salem
Curves office offers a quote from Oprah Winfrey, “I
believe that you are here to become more of yourself
and live your best life.” Hollie Flynn gives each
moment her very best effort and is a paradigm of
how one person with a plan can be a catalyst for
building a network of people dedicated to giving
their very best to bring about a positive change for
others.
In addition to these efforts, her Curves members
raised $3,500 for Hurricane Katrina relief. Together,
they have raised approximately $78,000 for Relay for
Life. Each location adopts a family during Christmas
to help provide a special holiday for both the parents
and children. One club hosts a Back to School drive
to collect school supplies for children whose families
cannot afford those costs. There have also been collections for care packages for US troops and plans
are in place for global outreach opportunities for the
coming year.

Agriculture Club Alumni
Making a Difference for Future Alumni
When you return to campus for events such as
Homecoming and the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival, you can
be certain to see an enthusiastic group of Agriculture Club
Alumni back on campus working to support their alma
mater and its current students.
Genny Padgett ’01, Agriculture Club Alumni Association
president, shares the mission of the group, “The Agriculture
Alumni Association exists to provide the Ferrum College
agricultural program with an effective and efficient source
of support through recruitment of students, providing educational and career opportunities for current students, and
general promotion of the program at the local, state, and
national level.”
Padgett believes Agriculture Club loyalty is a direct reflection
of their time at Ferrum, “Being a member of the Agriculture
Club not only provided me leadership opportunities through
holding offices, but it also provided me the chance to be part
of something that I really believed in and held value in.
Agriculture was not just part of my life; it was my life and still
is. I want students to be proud of that. If I hadn’t been a
member of the Agriculture Club, and experienced the camaraderie, I truly believe I would not have been as successful
throughout my college and professional career.”
Each year, Agriculture Club Alumni plan a series of
fundraisers to assist in providing scholarships to rising
Ferrum seniors who are active members in the Agriculture
Club. To accomplish this, they have organized raffles, sold
strawberry shortcakes at the Heart of Virginia Festival in
Farmville, and taken on the daunting responsibility of
preparing and selling Brunswick stew at the annual Blue
Ridge Folklife Festival.
The current Agriculture Club Alumni officers and the Alumni
and Family Services Office need your help in locating former
Agriculture Club members. If you were a member of the
Agriculture Club and have not been receiving alumni club
updates, please send an email to [email protected]
or to [email protected] If you would like to become more
involved in Agriculture Club Alumni gatherings and initiatives, we would love to hear from you!
At each spring banquet for the students, Agriculture Club
Alumni present a gift to the Agriculture Club students who
have been nominated by their peers as outstanding club
members. They also raise money to help finance the needs
of the student Agriculture Club such as purchasing a new
camera for the group and providing for portable chutes and
a corral system for working cattle.
There are also opportunities for fun and fellowship. On
behalf of the Agriculture Club Alumni, J.T and Meagan
Gilliam, both class of 2002, organized a ride down the
24
James River followed by a cookout at their home in
September. Marion Price ’87 coordinated a reunion for her
Agriculture Club Alumni classmates last year.

FERRUM COLLEGE
HONOR ROLL
OF DONORS
July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2006
Dear Alumni and Friends:
One of the hallmarks of a tremendously strong organization, business, or team is consistency.
Success happens when continuous momentum is sustained at high levels. Thanks to the thousands of
alumni, friends, and others who continue to support Ferrum with their selfless giving, Ferrum is enjoying
winning consistency.
For the fourth consecutive year, gifts to Ferrum College exceeded $3 million. Because of your
support, many more students have benefited from new scholarship aid, better academic and living facilities, and a campus environment made more beautiful by the investments we have made in our infrastructure. The positive momentum engulfing Ferrum has energized and motivated our financial supporters,
and your consistent generosity is making a real impact on the College.
On behalf of our students, faculty, staff, and others at Ferrum, I thank you for your sustaining
gifts that enable Ferrum to offer the excellent educational experience we provide. While we celebrate the
consistent gifts of the past four years, your future support is even more critical as we move forward in our
growth. Large enrollment growth brings the need for additional scholarship dollars, and facilities must
constantly change so that our learning and living environments meet the needs of tomorrow’s students.
We are deeply grateful for the consistent generosity you show to Ferrum College, and we look
forward to the future knowing that you remain our partners in continued growth and momentum. Thank
you for all that you do!
Sincerely,
Dr. Herbert L. King, Jr.
Vice President for Institutional Advancement

Ways to Invest in Ferrum College
The size and type of gift you make to Ferrum
reflects your goals and situation. The simplest way to
make a gift is by cash or credit card. If you itemize
your federal income tax return, outright gifts are
deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross
income in most cases. Ferrum is also able to accept
marketable securities such as stocks and bonds. The
College may accept personal property and real estate if
it supports the College’s mission and meets certain criteria.
Many donors find that a planned gift is an inviting
option. In most cases, while the gift to the College is
deferred, the donor takes an action as part of estate
planning to provide for this gift at a later time, usually
after death. If the action results in an irrevocable
transfer, a partial tax deduction is possible.
Planned gifts include:
Bequests - naming Ferrum in your will
Retirement Plans - naming Ferrum as a beneficiary
Life Insurance - naming Ferrum as a beneficiary
Charitable Gift Annuities - transferring assets to
Ferrum in exchange for a fixed income to yourself
Charitable Remainder Trusts - transferring assets to a
trustee to provide income to you for life, with the
remainder balance coming to Ferrum at your death
Charitable Lead Trusts - transferring assets to a trustee to
provide income to Ferrum for a fixed period of time, then
reverting back to you or other beneficiaries
The best plan for you depends on your personal circumstances. Your legal or tax advisor should be consulted during
the decision-making process. For additional information, contact Ferrum’s development office at 540-365-4221 or toll free at
1-877-FERRUM1.
Recognizing those who support the College financially is important to us at Ferrum. We have made every
effort to ensure that our annual list of donors is correct and complete. We apologize for any errors and ask
that you bring them to our attention so we can correct our records.

We Didn’t Have Anything But Each Other
I
f you ask Charles M. “Mac” Abernathy ’45 to describe
Ferrum College in the mid 1940’s, you will hear a description that sounds something similar to Charles Dickens’
famous opening of A Tale of Two Cities. World War II was
winding to a close, and the country looked forward with excited
optimism for the future. At Ferrum, the outlook for revival was
not so bright. In a very real sense, as Dickens says, “it was the
best of times; it was the worst of times.”
In 1943, as World War II raged at its height in Europe and
the Pacific, 16 year old Mac Abernathy left his family’s tobacco
farm in Brunswick County, VA and came to Ferrum Junior
College to take foreign language and algebra so that he could
earn enough requirements for admission to Randolph-Macon.
Mac arrived to a Ferrum campus feeling the full brunt of
wartime sacrifices. “There were 32 students in my freshman
class, and next year, only nine in my sophomore class,”
Abernathy recounts. “There was only one other male in my
class.”
Ferrum had also lost much of its resemblance to a high
school and junior college. “Entire families had been broken up
and displaced because of fathers and mothers serving in the military and performing civil service, so the Methodist church
arranged for students of all ages to come to Ferrum,” Mac
recalls. In that sense, “it was like a large home school. Times
were hard. The school struggled, and I used to always say ‘We
didn’t have anything but each other.”
Despite the difficulties of being at Ferrum during this point in
her history, Mac’s experiences here forged strong and lasting
friendships and helped to form a solid foundation of character
and hard work. “I had a great job working as an assistant in the
biology lab,” he remembers, “but Mr. Derby, Ferrum’s president
at the time, reassigned me to work in the furnace room. Boy did
I ever hate having to crawl into the boiler to clean it,” he laughs.
Mac left Ferrum in early 1945 and transferred with another
Ferrum student to Brevard College in NC to finish his last
semester. “I still regret not staying at Ferrum and graduating
with my classmates,” he says. “Ferrum had become such a conglomeration of all ages that I wanted to experience more of a
true college environment.” After Brevard, Mac joined the
Merchant Marine at age 17 and worked on troop transfer ships
bringing US troops back from Italy, France, and North Africa.
Following the Merchant Marine, Mac volunteered in 1946 for an
18 month stint in the US Army before eventually finding his way
back to Randolph Macon College in 1948. He earned his degree
in 1950.
Early in his professional career, Mac and his
family settled in Suffolk where he initially
worked for the state health department.
“I had a choice of going to either Galax
or Suffolk,” Mac recalls. “I had just
bought a new television set from
Miller and Rhoades and was making payments on it. You could get
one TV channel in Suffolk, so
that’s where we decided to settle.
I like to tell people that my whole
life path was determined by the
television.” He became an active
leader in the Suffolk Community,
becoming both a local and national
leader in the Junior Chamber of
Commerce and other civic clubs. His
leadership to the local community
resulted in Suffolk giving him its
Distinguished Service Award in 1963. His civic
involvement enabled his selection in the initial publication of the
By Dr. Lee King
book Outstanding Young Men of America, 1965. Mac also later
worked for both the Federal Land Bank and for Investors
Diversified Services, where he sold mutual funds and other
investment plans. “I was successful,” Mac says, “because I love
people. I used to always tell my clients that the heaviest burden
you’ll ever have to carry is the burden of an empty pocketbook.”
His great people skills and sales success carried him to winning
the Tidewater Sales and Marketing Executives Award, also
known as “The Sammy.”
Mac has always lived Ferrum’s motto “Not Self, But Others”,
and perhaps the crowning achievement in Mac’s civic involvement came during his 12 years as a member of the Suffolk
School Board. Mac was respected locally for his recognition of
the importance of vocational and technical education. During
his tenure, he organized four local governments and their respective school divisions to help create the jointly operated P. D.
Pruden Vocational Technical Center. He served as its first operating chairman, and managed the process of developing its operating procedures, by-laws, and cost sharing by the localities
involved. During this time, he also strengthened his bonds with
Ferrum College, helping to begin the Greater Hampton Roads
Scholarship Fund, as well as the Tidewater area alumni chapter.
Through his career, Mac helped others by showing them how
to save and invest. He is showing this same helping and generous spirit through his investments in the future of Ferrum students. Mac and his wife, Ann, have established a charitable gift
annuity. By transferring funds to a gift annuity at Ferrum
College, Mac has been able to guarantee a 6.5% annuity income
for both himself and Ann for the remainder of their lives, as well
as benefit from the tax advantages that a gift annuity allows.
They received a large immediate income tax deduction, and a
portion of their annual income from the annuity is tax free.
Mac’s gift annuity will ultimately fund the Charles M. “Mac”
Abernathy ’45 Endowed Scholarship Fund at Ferrum College.
Through this gift, future generations of Ferrum students from
Southside Virginia will have a portion of their education funded
by Mac’s generosity. “Ferrum College helped me to have an education,” Mac firmly states. “I want to give others that same
chance. Perpetuity is nice, and it is a wonderful feeling to be
remembered, and still helping others, long after you are gone.”
Mac also hopes that his story will encourage fellow alumni and
friends to follow this example and consider doing the same thing
for Ferrum. “People know I’m not wealthy, but if they know
what I can do, they would see it’s not out of their reach. I might
well influence others to make the same decisions,” he adds. Mac
sums it best when he says, “Years ago during my first day at
Ferrum, we assembled in the church. I remember we sang the
song “Others.” I had never heard it, but it made an impression
on me that I remember to this day. As a certified lay speaker, I
have used this illustration many times to show how God would
have us spend the lives and resources He has given each of us.”
As a student, Mac witnessed the worst of times in Ferrum’s
history, but because of the closeness of the Ferrum College family his most pleasant memories are of the strong bonds he created here. Despite serious financial strain and short supplies of
wartime, Ferrum’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of its
students helped create an attitude of appreciation and involvement in Mac Abernathy. Those seeds that were planted within
him during a time of struggle have blossomed into a perpetual
gift for Ferrum students that will long outlive Mac Abernathy.
Many future students will be grateful for Mac’s concern and dedication.

Hometown: Potomac Falls, VA
Major/Minor: Sports Management emphasis in Marketing and Management/Business
Campus Activities: Student Government Association - Legislative Vice President and
Senate, Football Manager, Basketball Intern, Kappa Alpha Sigma, and Ferrum College
Planning, Budgeting & Assessment Committee student representative
Career Plans: To attend graduate school at Georgia Southern in 2007 for Sports
Management, eventually landing a job with the National Football League.
Scholarship: Daniel Scholarship (John W. Daniel)
Ferrum Experience: Aundrea Burton came to Ferrum College because she liked the intimate feel of the small campus community. “I still consider my freshman year the best year
of my college career,” says Burton, now a senior. “It was then that I learned about my surroundings and made friends and established connections that will last a lifetime. It was my
freshman year that helped prepare me for the things that I am doing here today as well as
future engagements. From leadership roles, to clubs, and extracurricular activities, my freshman year was the best.”
Her favorite quote reads: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest
fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most
frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve
the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel
insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It
is not in just some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson
Students like Aundrea Burton are given the opportunity to prepare for life at
Ferrum College and beyond, made possible in part through generous gifts to
Ferrum’s scholarship endowments. With gratitude, Burton states, “Thank you
so much for making it possible for me to let my personal light shine in the
Ferrum College community.”

Ferrum Experience: Thomas James originally came to Ferrum to play football; upon
achieving that goal, James became active in many campus activities. He raised money for
charities, entertained the community with music, helped lead the student Christian organization, and volunteered to help people in need. He also spent three years serving as a youth
director for a local church. Through funds donated to Ferrum’s Christian Ministries programs, James and other students were able to spend their 2006 spring break in the New
Orleans area, helping with Hurricane Katrina relief as part of the United Methodist
Volunteer in Mission program.
Gifts to Ferrum College’s Christian Ministries programs and endowed scholarships support young people like Thomas James to mature as leaders and helpful
members of their communities. In James’ words, “Thank you to all who give.
Your support helps students realize their potential and gives them opportunities
to answer God’s call.”

Kelly Payne
2009
CLASS OF
Hometown: Clifton Forge, VA
Major/Minor: Political Science/Criminal Justice
Student Activities: Assistant Manager of WFFC Ferrumradio.com, Theta Gamma Omega,
Colleges Against Cancer, O-Team Leader, Freshman Mentor, Web Broadcaster for women’s
volleyball and softball, Political Science Association, Ferrum Greek Council, Women’s
Leadership Conference
Awards/Scholarships: Women’s Leadership Award, Presidential Scholarship
Career Plans: To attend law school at either George Mason University or Rutgers
University, eventually opening her own firm.
Ferrum Experience: Kelly Payne decided to attend Ferrum College because it was her
aunt’s alma mater (Tina Payne ’83) and the college of choice for some of her friends. Payne
is only the second person in her family to attend college. In Ferrum, she saw a quaint family
environment. Payne made friends easily at Ferrum and enjoys her daily life.
Kelly Payne was assigned to the Alumni Office for her work/study commitment. There, she
met Beth Stewart, Director of the Ferrum Fund, and began her night job calling alumni to
ask for unrestricted monetary support of the College. In Payne’s words, “Thank you to
everyone in the ‘Ferrum family’ who gives to Ferrum College and continues to do so year
after year. As a Pantherthon caller, I really enjoy the opportunity to connect with the alumni
and hear stories of how Ferrum has changed throughout the years.”
When you support the Ferrum Fund, you are supporting students like Kelly
Payne. Your gifts to the Ferrum Fund help to provide additional scholarships and
research opportunities for Ferrum students. Your endorsement is also a favorable determinant for outside corporations and foundations when considering
whether to fund grant requests from the College. What a difference one gift
can make!

Jermaine Pitts
2007
CLASS OF
Hometown: Winston-Salem, NC
Major: Finance and Accounting
Student Activities: Intercollegiate Football
Awards: Set new school record for most rushing yards in a single game (the record was
previously held by Chris Warren), Player of the Week (several times), MVP in the game
against Shenandoah earlier this season, 2nd Team All-Conference last year
Career Plans: To continue playing football whether it’s in the NFL, the CFL, or in the
arena football league. Eventually, Pitts sees himself coaching and going on to graduate school.
Experience at Ferrum: Jermaine Pitts came to Ferrum to further his football career
because Ferrum already had a successful football program. Pitts recalls, “I remember sitting
in my first class on the first day of my freshman year. The professor was going over the syllabus and I remember thinking, ‘How am I going to get all of this work done and play football? There is no way!’ As the semester went on, I realized how committed everyone is to
helping one another succeed at Ferrum. The College really lives up to its motto of Not Self,
But Others. That is the reason that I’m able to have such success both on the field and in
the classroom.”
In addition to his classes, study time, football practice, training, and intercollegiate football
games, Pitts also has a work/study assignment in Subway and the Black & Gold Grille.
“Your support of Ferrum College Athletics continues to help us grow as students and athletes,” says Pitts. “As long as Ferrum has support, it will continue
to grab attention, and students will continue to grow. I would like to give special
thanks to everyone that supports Ferrum.”

Ferrum.edu
Receives A
Facelift!
The Public Relations office is proud to announce the
roll-out of an all-new Ferrum.edu front page design.
This design reflects Ferrum's quality and innovation
without sacrificing the ease-of-use you've come to
expect. On the front page you'll find helpful menus
that pop up when your mouse rolls over "Current
Students" or "Alumni" - this helps reduce the clutter of
links on the side of the page. http://www.ferrum.edu/
Profess 2006 Showcases Faculty Achievement
The annual publication of Ferrum College faculty
accolades and research, Profess, is now available
online. Profess also features an article on
Cheatham Fellowship winner Dr. Lana Whited by
Laurie Borslien ’03. The 2006 edition can be
downloaded for free at:
www.ferrum.edu/onlinedocs/index.htm.
FERRUM MAGAZINE
One of the biggest and most exciting changes is the
addition of the Ferrum Dispatch. This will be
Ferrum's new hub for news and announcements. By
centralizing this into one informative page we have a
fresh, updated page that can act as a newsletter every
day! You may find that it's the Ferrum Dispatch page
that you want to bookmark for the latest information
on news, events, weather, scores and more!
http://www.ferrum.edu/dispatch/
We hope you like this new design. Webmaster and
Lead Designer Suzie Kelly deserves tremendous credit
for the design, the thoughtfulness of the arrangement
and innovative techniques.
