Haley Center

Hey guys!

Hope you listened to the first podcast! For those of you interested, here's some more on the honored Dr. Haley. If you haven't listened to it yet, I profiled the late Dr. Haley.

From graduating from Auburn University, to serving 51 years on Auburn's board of trustees, he was a man who valued education and did everything he could to make the University great.

Also, I  talk about things in Dr. Haley's lifetime of a more personal nature, and why he was a role model for people even today!

Below we see a rare gathering of important figures in Auburn's History:
