Hello! It’s the last day of Brevard, and I thought I might take a walk with you down the main road, Andante Lane, and reminisce a little, because yes indeed the weeks at Brevard have just flown by and it's just a week 'til I return home to Nashville!
Get it??? Earthquake, rocks... I'm here all week. If you haven’t heard already, last week Vandy students found yet another bullet point to add to the lengthy list of reasons why our school is the absolute BEST. Read on for the (incredible) lineup, Quake info, and more!
