Kimberlie and her husband and other Samford families were in Virginia as our baseball team prepared to play VMI,  stopping by the Washington and Lee campus for a visit.  There they encountered the campus museum shop co-supervisor, Margaret Samdahl.  Upon recognizing that the families were from Samford, Mrs. Samdahl enthusiastically noted that she is a nursing graduate from Samford, expressing strong appreciation for Dr. Nena Sanders and our nursing faculty.  Kimberlie said, “We felt that instant Samford bond!”

Many of us have had similar experiences, meeting Samford people across the globe through chance encounters and experiencing “that instant Samford bond.” 

The world is better because of the depth and breadth of the Samford community.
