Hall of Fame Speech

— by on May 5th, 2009

If you were among the fortunate alumni in Lee Chapel Saturday morning, then you already know that former Sen. John W. Warner of the Class of 1949 presented a once-in-a-lifetime moment when he responded to being presented The Washington Award. If you weren’t there, then you are in luck because Sen. Warner’s remarks are available both as a video on the University’s YouTube channel and as audio in the Seen and Heard section of the Web. His story of how his graduation from W&L won the last debate of his first political campaign is priceless.
