    NEW ORLEANS, La. — I’ve gotten to the age when I periodically receive those calls or texts with unexpected sad news.

    It is the wake-up call when you hear a high school or college classmate has died and you realize that you’re not as young as you think. More often though it is news of a relative or some beloved teacher. I received one of the messages recently.

    “Did you hear? Bro. Nunnally died.”

    Bro. Nunnally was none other than the Rev. David H. Nunnally of Athens.

    I met him early in 1986 as I attended the interest meeting for Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity at the University of Georgia. Rev. Nunnally was introduced as the chapter’s advisor. Medium build with a pleasant demeanor, he was definitely an old school type of dude. Once I was selected to pledge, I ended up beginning a relationship with a man that lasted almost 30 years.

    Yes, he was the guide for our chapter. But reflecting on this Founder’s Day, not only did Bro. Nunnally teach me what it meant to be an Alpha, but he also unknowingly taught and reinforced values that would make me a good husband, father, and college president (which de facto is father for hundreds of students).

    In the spring of 1986, my line brothers and I spent time with Bro. Nunnally and his family on numerous occasions.

    By day, Karynn Verrett is a case manager working to get nurses injured on the job back to work. By night, she is building the travel app of her dreams.

    Verrett, 23, got her first taste of travel while studying nursing at Dillard University. She was young and experiencing New York, Miami, Chicago and other cities for the first time.

    Verrett hit all the tourist hotspots her Google searches recommended. But each trip also felt a bit hollow, like she was missing out on the real experiences just around the corner.

    "A lot of the places I was going to see for the first time," Verrett said. "I wouldn't know what to do, what to see, where to go to get the experience I desired."

    Earlier this year, Verrett decided to take the plunge and throw what she had into makingToured, a mobile app that uses an individual's preferences to curate travel experiences for them.

    Verrett said plenty of apps -- Yelp, TripAdvisor, Hipmunk to name a few -- help users find local eateries, things to see and places to stay. Verrett envisions a one-stop shop for travel info that uses location and user rating tools to make fast recommendations on what to do next.
