Dr. Dolly

At the University of Tennessee Art + Sciences commencement on Friday May 8, 2009 Dolly Pardon was given an honorary PhD. At first I thought it was just a regular idea. Potentially being like all of the other speakers at various commencements. BUT after Dolly started singing and then speaking, it might have turned out to be the best commencement speech I’ve ever heard! Not once did I feel the need to drift off. She talked about real world happenings while relating them to people who had potentially not even begun “life” yet. Very inspiring and great to see her be rewarded!

Angela Howard and Joy Davis performed for First Night in the Green Room at the Holston on Gay St in downtown Knoxville, TN. This was a great performance; I wish I had a better camera!
