Nice To Meet You Mr. President - 08/25/14
My wife and I helped our daughter move into her dorm room at MTSU on Friday. It was a lot of fun for all of us. While I was taking my car to the parking lot after unloading some of her gear, I ran into university president Dr. Sidney McPhee.
He was standing out in the street greeting parents and students as they came and went. I rolled down my window, said hello and shook his hand. I thought that was a nice touch on his part.
Later in the evening I was talking with another parent and heard Dr. McPhee had helped some students take their things from the curb to their room.
It's been a long time but I don't remember seeing my university president on move-in day. What an endearing memory Dr. McPhee helped create. He deserves a lot of credit for the growth of that university in recent years. Hats off Mr. President, nice to meet you.
