Tales of I-81

— by on August 3rd, 2009

When a Washington Post reporter was beginning to research a story on what it’s like to drive Interstate 81 on a regular basis, he called Washington and Lee’s public affairs office to see if he could locate some folks who could relate tales of traffic and tailgating trucks. He was put in touch with both Frank Parsons, former coordinator of facilities planning at W&L, and Sarah Tschiggfrie, news director, who shared their experiences going up and down the valley. No doubt W&L alumni, students and parents who’ve traveled to and from Lexington can relate to the stories, too, and have plenty of their own. Have a look at the Post’s piece here.
