Emmanuel Hernandez Mellado ’23 hit the ground running when he arrived at the University of Lynchburg for the Fall 2019 semester. The first in his family to attend college, the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, resident wasted no time getting involved on campus.
Historical nonfiction author David Price was on campus last week speaking with first-year seminar students about his 2003 book, Love and Hate in Jamestown: John Smith, Pocahontas, and the Start of a New Nation. Price’s book was the Common Reading Experience for Lynchburg’s Class of 2022.
