SCOSAA Gab Session, September 2008

One of the first SILS student group events of the new school year was SCOSAA's September Gab Session with three former SILS students: Noah Huffman, Jessica Sedgwick, and Biff Hollingsworth. All three worked at the Southern Historical Collection (SHC) and graduated from SILS just last May, 2008. Biff and Jessica are now employed at the SHC, and Noah at Dook. Yay for you guys! A lot of new faces in the crowd, with a good turn out of about 15 interested Gabbers.
