Paul Satterwhite leaves Emory and his role at Dooley's side

Presidents may come and presidents may go; professors may come and professors may go; students may come and students may go; but Dooley goes on forever.

-Dooley's Diary, 1909

Lewis Satterwhite knows these words by heart. And well he should. The graduating senior from Bristol, Tenn., was one of two permanent spokespersons for the legendary William M. Dooley this school year. "It's a bit nerve-wracking reading Dooley's remarks because I never see them until just before I have to speak on his behalf," Satterwhite said. "But it is fun."

Serving as a spokesperson was one of many honors bestowed upon Satterwhite, who admits to keeping a written list to remember the awards and accomplishments. Most notable were his selection as a Bobby Jones Scholar, being one of three Emory College finalists for the prestigious Brittain Award and making the state finals for the Rhodes Scholar program.

Satterwhite also made a name for himself as a two-time, all-conference basketball player for Emory. He finished in the Top 10 in school history for career points and rebounds. Shortly before graduation, Satterwhite learned he was one of six Division III basketball players in the nation to receive a $5,000 postgraduate scholarship from the NCAA.

After a year abroad in Scotland, Satterwhite plans to attend medical school and/or pursue a degree in public health. He is intrigued by the cultural issues related to medical care in the Appalachian region. "There are a lot of 'I don't knows' in my future plans," he said. "But I do know that Emory was the perfect place for me. And, as Dooley might say, Emory will live on forever in me."
