VFH Board member W. Tucker Lemon grew up in Roanoke, Virginia, where his family has resided since the 1740s.
After earning degrees from Princeton and U.Va., he headed to Los Angeles where he practiced law for twelve years. He returned to Roanoke in 1998 and joined the VFH Board in 2013.
He recently sat down in our radio studio to share a little of his story and tell us why he thinks the humanities matter.
I’ve always valued what I see the humanities and the arts can add to a community.
The humanities provide context and fabric to the human experience.
VFH is involved in fostering environments in which people experience the humanities as powerful links to their own lives.
