WHV RESIDENT CELEBRATES 70th ALUMNI ANNIVERSARY
Long-time Warm Hearth resident Evelyn Long, class of 1951, celebrated her 70th anniversary and attended virtual reunions, hosted by Warm Hearth Village. The first of her family to attend college, Long loved learning. At first, she majored in Biology at Madison University, now James Madison University, which was an all-girls school at the time. She didn’t think the program was strong enough, so she transferred to Virginia Tech. She was one of just 36 women out of 1,002 in her graduating class. Long said Virginia Tech was a wonderful experience for her. “Absolutely perfect. I always knew I would go to college. I loved being in school,” she said.
