Cover Story:

THE SECRET'S OUT!

There was a time when Limestone College was the best kept secret in the Southeast.

Quietly, for years, a renaissance has been taking place.

While Limestone College was out for the summer, our very own Professor of History Dr. Jonathan Sarnoff continued to be a Presidential Election Analyst for WSPA News Channel 7, a CBS affiliate out of Spartanburg.

Here is a screen shot of Dr. Sarnoff (far left) on the set at WSPA during the Democratic Convention. He was also an analyst for the Republican Convention as well.

Thank you Dr. Sarnoff for representing Limestone so well!
