Daily Student Perspective - Day 2: Senior Jimmy O’Conner

Hello! We began the day with a quick set up and sound check. We had a great lunch at the General Morgan Hotel and began an historical journey through good ol' Greeneville TN. We saw many beautiful sights and learned many great things about the community. After a visit from our 17th President, Andrew Johnson, and a trip to the local YMCA for some relaxation, we went back to the hotel for an amazing dinner. From there we went to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center and put on an amazing show for over 900 excited Greeneville residents. We are currently on the road to sunny Florida! Overall, it was a great day and an amazing start to our busy Spring Break. Have a good one!
