IN THE SPIRIT OF ORANGE AND MAROON
For Hokies, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) is more than a motto. It’s a way of life. Giving back is a theme that crosses generations of Virginia Tech graduates and inspires future students.
When unexpected natural disasters or other crises strike, Hokies like Mickey Hayes ’64, are always among the first to respond.

Last fall, Hayes and his wife, Sarah, saw their home on the island of Abaco destroyed by Hurricane Dorian. They responded by partnering with Kyle Falwell, who managed and flew Hayes’ Cessna jet, to transport relief supplies, including a significant amount of Hokie apparel, to the weather-ravaged island. Although the couple and their Bahamian neighbors still face significant challenges in rebuilding their community, they are persevering, wearing not only Hokie colors but also Hokie spirit.
“It’s what Ut Prosim is all about,” Hayes said. “That we may serve.”
