Trip to Mississippi State
Julie and I were fortunate to take a trip to Starkville, MS at the end of last week. Our primary purpose was to see a photo of Magellan on campus. We traveled as guests of Hunter Henry who is an alumnus and on the Foundation Board. Magellan's photo is in a case that discusses Mr. Henry's life story in the Alumni Center. Secondarily, I gave a talk in the Geosciences Department about grass-fed beef. Kevin has a colleague in that department that he met while a PhD student at Arizona State. In addition, we also visited the Waverly Plantation which dates back to 1852 along the banks of the Tombigbee River in Mississippi. Julie also got to go into a Piggly Wiggly grocery store for the first time. We brought an individual peach pie home for Laz, some crawtator chips for Moses, and some butter cookies for Gelli from Piggly Wiggly.
