Abstract

(What follows is adapted from a talk that Sam Schuman, Chancellor Emeritus of the University of North Carolina Asheville, delivered at the university’s dedication of its new fitness center to him on August 31, 2013.) I first started coming to UNC Asheville in the early 1970s, when Nancy and I would visit her parents, who lived about two miles from where we stand today. I’d come to the campus, then a much more modest place, and use two facilities: the library and the outdoor track (then an unnamed cinder oval). Forty years later, I’m still here a couple of times a week to use the library and the physical education facilities. I might not be very good at things, but I do tend to be persistent. The library and the track and the Center for Health and Wellness are named for important benefactors of our university, and I am so very proud that UNCA has graciously put my name on its fine new fitness area, to which I repair so regularly that I get irritated if someone is on my elliptical machine!
