A few years ago, the Angel family traveled across the country to Keystone, South Dakota. As we emerged from a mountain bridge, the faces of four former United States presidents appeared as if viewed through a telescope. Breathtaking! Majestic! Magnificent! The profiles were much more powerful in reality than in the glimpses provided in the famous Alfred Hitchcock film, North by Northwest.
We were struck by the imagination, the daring, and the tenacity of the artists who had conceived and brought the national monument to life. Here, etched in solid rock and on a gargantuan scale, were four significant Profiles in Prominence.
Having been at Marshall for the past five years, we continually have been impressed with the achievement and success of Marshall University alumni, who we’ve encountered all across America.
Discussing it one evening, we concluded that many of our 90,000 alums have indeed achieved prominence in their own right and that we should do something to chronicle their success. The result is this volume, the third in our series.
The ten individuals whom you will meet in these pages are truly Marshall University Profiles in Prominence. We hope to continue to produce annual volumes celebrating these marvelous stories of achievement. It is also our hope that these beacons of success will serve as inspiration for thousands of future Marshall students.
