Dr. Adam Childers from the math department has frozen toes. Childers, who is an assistant professor of mathematics and statistics, won the Frozen Toe 10K, an aptly named off-road challenge on the Chestnut Ridge loop trail outside of Roanoke. Other Roanoke College racers include Track Coach Finn Pincus, who came in #1 in his age group, and Web Administrator Michael Santoroski. Roanoke alumna Bridgett Tainer-Parkins ’06 and â€œLeftyâ€ Leftwich ’85 braved the elements as well. Read the Roanoke Times story.
In case students didn’t notice, it snowed just after you left campus and much of the snow is still here, just waiting for more. Check out the pictures.
