Tandem Sports + Entertainment founder and president Jim Tanner ’90 interviewed for the Morehead-Cain before the advent of email.

“It was all by letter,” he says. “In high school we could leave for our lunch break because we were seniors. I remember driving home to check the mailbox every day during lunch.”

One day, there was a letter. The letter he’d been waiting for. It was a thin envelope.

“I was sad, thinking if I had been chosen it would be a thick package,” Jim recalls.

“I will never forget the absolute joy and excitement of finding out that I had been accepted as a Morehead-Cain Scholar.”
