A warm Averett welcome to familiar faces
Buddy Rawley, '75, has joined the University as vice president for institutional advancement. Buddy's office is in Main Hall.






Robbie Hendrix, '10, is the records specialist in the registrar's office. Recognizing Robbie isn't always easy since most of us are used to seeing him in costume for one of the theatre productions. A Danville native, he brings many wonderful qualities to his new position.




Thank You!
The Breen Family would like to extend a big thank you to the Averett family. As most of you know, I had surgery on my neck Oct. 4. The surgery went well and I am now healing nicely. We want to thank all of you for the cards, thoughts, prayers, and wonderful gifts of time and the delicacies from your kitchens. It has been wonderful to experience the generosity and kindness of the Averett community. You all have made a very challenging time, a bit easier.
Thank You!
Richard Breen
