Ed & Andrea Higgins Perry

Class Year(s): 1967

My husband, Ed Perry ’68was in the cafeteria (so he says) and decided that he would ask the next girl who walked in out on a date. Lo and behold, in I walked! I had noticed him earlier and thought he was cute, so said “yes.” We went to the drive-in movie. After that date I said “never again,” but when he called and asked me out again, off I went! We dated that year and part of the next, but as we were in different colleges we broke up for a year and a half. We stayed in touch though and in our senior year in college we got back together and were married in my home church, First Baptist in Dalton, Georgia on September 5. Thanks to the Good Lord for pushing me through that door at Andrew, as Ed and I have now had 46 years together. We established Horse Creek Winery on our farm in 2008 and recently opened a tasting room and bistro. We have three children and three grandchildren.
