New applicant pool looks promising!

We just had a wonderful thing happen in our office. A tour group returned and one father pulled someone aside to tell us a quick story and to ask for our help in resolving it.

Two hours north of Charlottesville, the man's family stopped at a gas station where his wife found a purse in the rest room. There was a cell phone in the purse and they used it to call a few numbers, but didn't get in touch with anyone. The gas station attendant was just going to hold the purse in a lost and found, but the family determined that the purse belonged to a member of the UVa community and decided to bring it down to Charlottesville in an attempt to get it back to the rightful owner more quickly.

The purse is now on Grounds and calls have been made to make sure the owner comes to get it. It's so nice to see people who aren't even part of our community (yet?) making an effort to help a Wahoo.
