MerlefestProspective Student Sighting!

by Alison L. Kimball
Admission Office Coordinator

You just never know where in the world you can meet up with a prospective student these days.  I had spoken with Evan in early April. He was planning to visit Sherman on Thursday, April 23, and was looking forward to meeting me.  I regretfully informed him that I would be on vacation that day, heading up to North Wilkesboro, NC to attend MerleFest, a 4-day music festival on the campus of Wilkes Community College. 

Evan, also a lover of bluegrass music, was happy to know where I’d be, as he told me that both he and his Dad would be at the festival on Friday.  So, I got his number and on Friday afternoon, called him. We managed to meet up at the Hillside stage, where we enjoyed a set by the John Cowan Band.

Evan and I discussed Sherman’s close knit family and small college size, which is an asset to any student once here, as you become an individual with a name, not just a number on someone’s roster.  We spent about an hour or so together, even ran into each other later that day (considering the festival hosts about 80,000 people), that was quite the coincidence!  Evan really appreciated my effort to add that “special touch” to the recruitment effort, and it is certainly my hope that we will see him at Sherman very soon!

It’s just too bad I couldn’t write off the cost of my ticket as a business expense!
