CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA–The Geological Society of America has a tradition of hosting a free breakfast for those students willing to come to the convention center at 7:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. The meal is hosted by the GSA President and sponsored by ExxonMobil Corporation. Secretaries of GSA sections and associated societies help serve the students, which is why I was there.
This year’s GSA President is George H. Davis (Wooster ’64) who with his wife Merrily generously greeted the Wooster students at their table, telling them stories about their Wooster days and inspiring them to geological activism. It was a classic moment for Wooster Geology.
This, by the way, was the first time I saw the Wooster students after their long drive down from Wooster to Charlotte. It was great to see them happy, enthusiastic and safe. They also seemed mighty hungry.
