At age 94, Harry McCoy isn’t ready to slow down. A retired Norfolk attorney and member of the Norfolk Rotary Club, Mr. McCoy has fond and very sharp memories of Mrs. Eggleston. He has maintained a scrapbook of photos of Mrs. Eggleston from the 1930’s. “Mr. and Mrs. Eggleston were like family to me,” recalls Mr. McCoy. “My parents were very close with Aubrey and Louise Eggleston and I called her “Aunt Louise.” We lived across the street and I remember the good things Mrs. Eggleston was doing many years before she became involved with the Tidewater Vocational Center which they later renamed Eggleston in her honor.”
