The men's soccer team has been very busy off the field. The team recently teamed up with the Piedmont Youth Soccer League in Martinsville to send soccer balls and equipment to a small village in Nicaragua.

Thanks from Larry
Dear Averett Family,
Thank you for the thoughtful gift of the planter upon my return to work. My recuperation from the kidney stone surgery has progressed nicely. Believe it or not, it is good to be back at work. Your comments have helped my progress.
