Dr. Dan Phillips, LWC, recalls meeting best friends at VA Tech
Dr. Dan Philllips met fellow LWC faculty member Steve Gordon there, and also Dr. Keith Durkin, who spoke at Lindsey Wilson last year. 'I just want people to know what a good place Virginia Tech was and is despite the murders that have taken place there,' he says.
Dr. Durkin will be interviewed on WKU radio Friday morning.
By Dan Phillips, Lindsey Wilson College
(2011-12-08) - Two people were killed today at Virginia Tech.
This just adds to the tragedy that happened in 2007 when 34 people were killed. I lived there from 1992-1997.
It was a great place to live. Virginia Tech is a large, state university in a small town.
This makes a university of 25,000 people seem much smaller; students are close and take a sense of pride in their 140 year old campus. The campus is very green; there is a farm on campus complete with cows.
The drill field reflects the military history of the school where several thousand students are enrolled in ROTC programs each year.
The best friends I have I met at Virginia Tech. One of them, Dr. Keith Durkin, spoke at Lindsey last year.
I just want people to know what a good place Virginia Tech was and is despite the murders that have taken place there.
Steve Gordon, who teaches economics at Lindsey, was a student at Virginia Tech in 2007 when the last shootings took place.
He was interviewed today by Lisa Autry of WKUs National Public Radio. His interview will air tomorrow at 5:50amCT and 7:50amCT on 89.7 FM. Please listen if you can.
