Huntingdon College Here He Comes

If you've followed along on Positively Southern's Instagram you know I've posted numerous photos of college visits over the past year.   I surely feel like I've seen what the south east has to offer in regards to colleges.  Last year on spring break we took our very first college tour at Huntingdon College.  As we toured we saw the historic and majestic buildings and talked to the various professors(shout out to the Chemistry & band folks) I was impressed. What I didn't realize John was falling in love with the school.  As we walked down the steps of Flowers Hall I will never forget the moment he grabbed my elbow and said "this is where I wanna go to school."

As I said before, we continued to tour other schools and liked many aspects of all of those.  John has always had a mind of his own, like when I wanted him to do percussion in band.  John came home and announced he'd selected the bassoon.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd never seen or heard a bassoon until he discovered it in 2nd grade.

For some 17 years this child of mine has donned our(mine & Honey's) college colors in all the navy and orange goodness there is.  This fall he will be all decked out in Scarlet & Grey!!!

 I don't mind to admit this Auburn alum is finding it hard to embrace anything red.  I'm working on it...as long as it has the Huntingdon College logo on it cause, God forbid someone would think something else! HA!

As the proud Mother,  I'd be remiss if I didn't say that he was awarded many scholarships from many colleges.  The one he landed at Huntingdon College was icing on the cake!  John was awarded the Edwin H. and Mae Rousseau Teague Scholarship (for students majoring in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics).  My kid is majoring in Chemistry on a premed track.  John will be a member of the Marching Scarlet & Grey playing alto sax and in the concert band he will play that bassoon he has loved since the 2nd grade.

This fall I'll be chanting something other than the War Eagle I've said for almost 53 years...I'll be saying...
