Alumni of the Lutheran Children’s Home of the South recently gathered for a reunion at what is now student housing at Roanoke College.

The group toured the old buildings, took photos and enjoyed catching up with one another.

“It’s like a big homecoming and we just love each other just like we were sisters. It’s like we’ve never been apart once we get together again,” says Sandra Jo Cobb Hughes, who entered the home when she was just 4 years old.

A few of the alumni sat down with LFSVA to share what it was like growing up at the home. Watch their stories here:
