If you click the link here, you'll be connected to our viral voices page, the home of our oral histories. In the 2013 edition, you'll be able to listen to conversations between students in our class and the following: an alternative hip hop artist from Lexington; a retired Lieutenant Colonel and psychiatrist; the youngest daughter of a Southern Baptist preacher; a Carlisle County couple who share their stories with a kettle of apple butter on the stove; a retired Sergeant Major who played ball against Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; a Kentucky restauranteur-turned-engineer; and a Dry Ridge couple who live on and tend a farm.
As my contribution to the class, I sat down with President Blevins on Thursday, October 17th, a few days short of her departure from her role as President of Georgetown College. This oral history addressed President Blevins' ties to the College, her beginnings in business, her advice to young alumni, and her vision for the College. You may listen to her interview here. Another link is available here.

Who would you interview if you were assigned the task of spending time with someone important to you? My answer is below—my mentor from Case Western Reserve University. I hope that I have the opportunity to do so.
