Sports Editor says goodbye to Tech

By Ross Harvey
On November 29, 2012

As I look back on my 4-and-a-half-year career at Tech, only one thought runs through my mind. I'm extremely blessed. Sure, I'm excited to see where my life will lead after graduation in two weeks. It is a bit bittersweet to leave the place I have called home for the last (almost) 5 years.
However, the most important thing I have picked up along this journey is that I am blessed to be a part of the Tennessee Tech family.
Other than, of course, a fantastic education.
I'm blessed to have worked with some of the most talented journalists out there, which we have working on this very issue of The Oracle. I'm especially thankful for my assistants Jamal Ferguson and Andy Rutherford, who graduated a semester before me, and my Editor-in-Chief, Will Housley.
I'd like to say thanks to my SGA family, my FNA-PPE family, my "Live with Sarah & Ross" director Lori Shull and my beautiful co-host and fellow graduate, Sarah DeRossett. Thank you also to my friends over in Athletics, Intramurals and Residential Life. Thanks to all the sororities and fraternities that have allowed me to take a place in your hearts and minds, while still allowing me to achieve my personal goal of staying true to my own name.
I'd like to thank all my fellow journalism majors, teachers and all my classmates I've come into contact with, and especially all my friends and family that have supported me in this endeavor. Each one of you have been vital to my journey and hold an important place with me. I will not forget how much you all mean to me.
Looking back, I wouldn't trade any of these memories for the world.
And now, as I leave behind a place in the 3rd floor of the RUC and other spots around campus, I encourage all you Golden Eagles to continue running the race that God has set in front of you, and push toward the goal. Don't ever give up. Just as I was blessed in my time here, you will be also. God's glory, not mine.
