I really enjoyed reading this book. It has enlighten me about slavery and how a person can rise above obstacles with determination to get an education. I think the youth of today could benefit from reading this book (especially the black man)to understand how a slave man made it over(success) and they can too! :)

This is so exciting to know that someone took the time to honor my great Uncle Will. Thanks again Deborah Scruggs-Cox for finishing your fathers work on this book. I can't put into words how much this means for me to have the opportunity to know so much more about his life. I remember visiting his home once as a child at age 13. I also remember that my Dad J. Mitchell always admired Uncle Will & always knew how important he was to our family history so he keep,news clippings,pics etc. about his life over the years. Uncle Will lived to be 109 and that was probably the most that any of us knew about his life but, now we can read so much more of the story this is such a true blessing!

I'm proud to say that this book is about my Great uncle. My grandfather Sam Nash brother. I'm also saddened that I never had the pleasure of getting to know him and to hear some of his experiences from his mouth. I hope to obtain a copy of this books. I've heard family members speak of him and although the relations are on my mothers( Carol Ann Nash)side. My father Jefferson Mitchell spoke so highly of him. I'm looking forward to learning more about my Great uncle and my history.

I have just now finished reading your book RE: Professor Nash. I enjoyed this reading very much and thank you so much for this part of McMinn Co. history. As you know, I am not a native of this area, but am always interested in local history and it's many makers.

I now see Professor Nash and his many minions as the local heroes that he/they were. Without he and other such giants of yore we might all be still mired in the shameful, disgraceful history that may plague the South and indeed the United States for centuries to come.

I am so fortunate to have personal memories of Professor Nash, who often hunted on our farm. My father, Hugh Willson, always held Professor Nash in the very highest regard, so, as a child, I was extremely interested in him. The book is excellent and filled in many holes in my understanding of this outstanding human being. Our world needs every person like Professor Nash it can get.

What a wonderful book! Bravo to Deborah Scruggs-Cox for writing this excellent memoir of Professor W.E. Nash. Being a history buff, I was extremely touched by the life of this incredible and magnificent man who came from humble beginnings and remained so his entire life, even though his life was filled with trials and tribulations that would have broken most men during those hard times. As I read his life story I cheered him on with each accomplishment he mastered. Living during an era in our country’s history where prejudice in our society was rampant, he never gave up. He and his lovely wife Willa, who was the first registered nurse in McMinn County, became pillars of the local community. This books is an inspiration and should be required reading for all school age children in McMinn County. This book and the life of Professor Nash deserve national recognition and I pray that someday it will be in all the bookstores nationwide.

Deborah,
I moved to Etowah in 1970 after serving multiple tours in Vietnam. I always enjoyed reading stories about Professor Nash in the DPA. He certainly was an asset to McMinn County. I enjoyed reading more about him in your book. I didn't know anything about his wife until the book was written. She was a great lady also. As a couple they gave so much of themselves to the city of Athens and surrounding areas. You and your dad are to be commended for keeping the history of this extraordinary family alive. I would strongly recommend that your book be included on the required reading list for students in the McMinn County school system.
