A Family Legacy

092705legacy_dl.jpgOne family’s four generations of Mountaineers gathered for the football home opener Sept. 17. Freshman Kara Oxendine, center, is flanked by (left to right) her great uncle Gene Scronce ’66 and great aunt Phyllis Scronce ’68, aunt Renee Brookes ’83, cousin Chris Scronce ’00, grandmother Faye Brookes ’67, and great-grandfather Leonard Scronce ’42. A loyal football fan, Leonard Scronce has reserved the same four seats at Kidd Brewer Stadium since the stadium was built in 1962. The family attended a Legacy Social sponsored by the Alumni Association.
