For Frank Beamer, who grew up around Virginia Tech graduates and remembers coming to Hokie football games as a kid, being a Hokie is in his blood. Frank was born in Mount Airy, North Carolina in 1946, the baby in a family with four children. Eventually, his family moved to Fancy Gap, Virginia where he helped on the family farm.
VT Stories Shorts
Every Hokie has a story, and VT Stories is committed to preserving and sharing as many of these stories as we can.
The VT Stories Oral History Project began in early 2015 as the result of some informal discussions among a small group of faculty, staff, and administrators across disciplines about utilizing the power of story in a number of different ways in a signature pilot project.
