University of Mississippi

Barry Hannah – entertainer, teacher, inspiration

Barry Hannah entertained many with his highly-acclaimed novels and collections of short stories, but his biggest contribution to the local community may well have come in the classroom as he’s taught, mentored and inspired countless students through the years. Editor Don Whitten admits to having his ups and downs with Hannah’s literary work, but not with all he’s seen from folks who tout Hannah’s other contributions. (March 3, 2010, Page 4)

Hannah helped shape many of us as writers

I was going through a major life change a few years ago and wanted to find my way back to writing. I decided to enroll in Barry Hannah’s creative writing course thinking it would be fun. Boy was I ever wrong. Instead it was the most grueling and painful experience of my life and one that has forever changed who I am.
Hannah wasn’t my favorite teacher because he was nice. He was a tough cookie with his students but anyone who ever had the joy of getting to experience it knows that they are forever a better writer because of him.

Say, Guv, can I ask you a question?

The general public doesn’t get many chances to ask top government officials questions, but readers of The Oxford EAGLE will get their chance next week if they submit some good ones to New Editor Jonathan Scott, who’s on a panel that will be talking with Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. Got a question? Send it in to Scott at The EAGLE. (February 25, 2010, Page 4)

Run for Hope a community-wide event

Many local runners are taking part and many other citizens have volunteered for a wide variety of jobs at Saturday’s Run for Hope Half Marathon and 5-K run. Now, it’s time for the rest of us to do our part to cheer everyone on as they take part in a local event that helps a special cause at Camp Hopewell and could mean so much to the community. (February 24, 2010, Page 4)
