Flooding update: The waters are down. We did take some water in our offices, archives, and basement from seepage due to runoff and heavy ground saturation. The Lynn Forney Young Outdoor Classrooms benches and picnic tables were swept away by the current.

So sorry! I have never seen the water that high. In the 37 years that I was there, it never got into the basement where the new offices are.

The library sign for the college is stuck in a tree by the June Buchanan Clinic just before the cemetery.

Yikes!!!

Thank you for the update. Looks bad.

That River certainly looks like it could get angry.

Prayers

🙏🙏🙏

Oh no

🙏🙏🙏🙏

How is it this morning? Hope you all are safe.

Water is probably high at the greenhouses and Cory's too. Sadly, only going to get worse tonight. Praying for all affected. Stay safe, Josh, and thanks for keeping us all updated.

Thanks Josh. I've worried about the water.

Wow I’ve never seen it that high

She also shares plenty of stories about what it was like growing up at the Settlement. Check it out at the link below or on Apple Podcasts or Spotify!

Apologies for the audio quality. The WiFi and recording equipment was struggling to cooperate so we had to settle for the Zoom recording.

What a gift this was. I think every board member involved in searching for the new Executive Director needs to listen to this. I not only know about Mike Mullins but a portion of history why Hindman Settlement School remains essential to this day. I am reminded of the phrase, "Standing on the shoulders of giants." Corey and Jordan, these podcasts are so informative. Each one gives me a better understanding of the mission. Such a treasure to have the oral history from your guests.

What a wonderful story. It was so nice to hear about where you’re from!

Awesome job Cassie. I know this had to be difficult and hope it brought back good memories, as well.

You did a wonderful job Cassie. Love you
