At The White House

It’s the kind of brief email that a dean enjoys receiving from a former student:

Hi Dean Parsons,

I wanted to share this with you. Thanks for my Elon education. It’s taking me places. Like The White House. Here’s a link.


David Douglas (class of 2006) is a reporter at WISC-TV in Madison, Wisc., and he was at The White House covering the first Medal of Honor ceremony for a living soldier since the Vietnam War.

U.S. Army Sgt. Salvatore Giunta received the Medal of Honor from President Obama yesterday for heroic efforts to save members of his squad during an ambush in Afghanistan in 2007.
