Trivia Answer:
My apologies for poorly framing yesterday’s trivia question.  I should have asked “Name the former Valhalla bartender who served as a university president in the SEC”.  R Bowen Loftin ‘73/’75 was president of Texas A&M and is currently chancellor of the University of Missouri.  Read more.
