On the road in Shepherdstown!

I traveled to Shepherdstown a few days ago to dedicate the new School of Nursing at Shepherd University. The men and women who graduate from this program will help to save thousands of lives through their healing arts. It was wonderful to see so many people turn out for the afternoon.
