Remember receiving a welcome packet after getting accepted to King University? Recently, students in the Multipage Design class, within the Digital Media Art & Design (DMAD) program, got the opportunity to work with the Advancement Office to design digital welcome packets for newly accepted students. This project is an important opportunity to work with an actual client and have their designs used, especially in school.
Rotherwood Mansion, located in Kingsport, TN, was built in 1818, and through its history has accumulated an interesting and supernatural history. The tales of the mansion are riddled with heartbreaking accounts of slavery, a legend of a hound from hell, and many lost souls wandering the grounds even in the afterlife.
In 2019, Tennessee was ranked 45th and Virginia 40th in the number of mental health providers available (America’s Health Rankings, 2019). The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Program is a new concentration added to the pre-existing Master of Science in Nursing and post-APRN, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, certificate programs within King’s School of Nursing. The program was designed to be delivered through online methods, and King’s unique location on the TN/VA line allows it to reach into both states as well as into surrounding areas. The main goal of the program is to give students the skills and qualifications to help fill the demand for mental health services in the area.
Mysterious ghost lights travel along the ridge before disappearing as quickly as they appeared on Brown Mountain in North Carolina. Many have tried to explain them, the reflection of a passing train, headlights from vehicles, foxfire (a bioluminescent light created by mushrooms on decaying wood), or moon dogs (moonlight reflecting on haze/fog). Others say St. Elmo’s fire (electric glows from sharp objects in a storm), aliens, too much moonshine, but none more famous than the tales of spirits who wander Brown Mountain.
