Homecoming and the passion is everywhere

Nothing like a good homecoming event to set your spirits high.  Today’s CNN Heroes event around Doc Hendley’s Wine to Water program was one such happenin’. The Chancellor, city council rep, mayor of Boone, students, and Doc all spoke and more than one choked up.  The passion welling up inside of them I’d say.

Mr Wuf, the NC State cheerleaders, marching band, half a dozen broadcast journalists, a dozen photographers, hundreds of students, faculty and staff all turned out.

Chancellor Woodward quoted German philosophy, Dr. Albert Schweitzer in describing Doc:  “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.  Doc Hendley has found how to serve.”  Indeed.  You go Doc. http://news.ncsu.edu/releases/hero-turns-wine-to-water/

No, it's not Geraldo

No, it's not Geraldo, it's Albert

Hillsborough Street will host the 2009 Homecoming Parade on Friday! The street will close for the 6 p.m. parade and its lineup of NC State coaches and athletic teams, cheerleaders, the university dance team, The Power Sound of the South and other local bands, student-sponsored floats, vintage cars and more. Don’t miss the fun, spirit and giveaways!  And by all means, wear Red.

Immediately following the parade, hit the Pack Howl Pep Rally with Coach Tom O’Brien and football captains, the Power Sound of the South (that’s the band.  Wonder if they will march right over?), NC State cheerleaders, the dance team and Craziest Fan contestants.  The rally is at Lee Field, next to the baseball stadium.

Indie rock band Roman Candle will open for headline act CollegeHumor Live (the web site warns:  some material is not appropriate for people under 18).

So its Homecoming.  Have fun and this homecoming, as Dr. Schweitzer would suggest, let’s all do something wonderful, people may imitate it.

Passion Rules!
