As a kid, Gardner-Webb University was one of my favorite places in the world. Playing tag on the quad, feeding the geese at Lake Hollifield, and splashing around in the University pool were treasured activities I looked forward to all year. I spent a week on the campus nearly every summer since my uncle, Mike Simpson, moved to Boiling Springs to pioneer Gardner-Webb’s women’s swim team in 1999.
