My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

This week the NCAA announced its 56-team field for the 2016 Division II Baseball Tournament on Sunday night and Catawba and UNC Pembroke earned at-large bids into the Southeast Regional. The two teams will play each other on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Mt Olive NC and I plan to be there.

I have a number of ties to Catawba College. One of them is Catawba is the alma mater to a number of people I have profiled in past posts on my blog including former Catawba President Joe Oxendine and Ken Carrick-CEO of Coleman Lew. Link to past posts on both found below:

Catawba College is a private, coeducational liberal arts college in Salisbury, North Carolina, United States. Founded in 1851 by the North Carolina Classis of the Reformed Church in Newton, the college adopted its name from its county of origin, Catawba County, before moving to its current home of Salisbury in 1925. I never realized that Catawba was founded in Newton NC.

Photo of campus today is shown below. Catawba’s campus is located in the historic piedmont city of Salisbury and consists of 41 buildings on 276 acres. It is a beautiful blend of neogothic architecture set on a shaded hillside adjacent to its own ecological preserve.

Catawba College has 1,306 students from 35 U.S. states and 21 foreign countries.
