Bruchette Winchester, mother of freshman Emanuel Purifoy, shares her thoughts on her son:
BW: “I cried on the way here. He is my only son and I am going to miss him very much. I am a single mother and I took him to all his baseball games and wrestling games. We are like best friends.
“What are his best qualities?”
BW: “He listens and he’s so understanding. He also has a great work ethic.”
“What are you going to miss about him?
BW: “I’m going to miss him walking the dog. Now I will be home alone so I am going to have to give his auntie his old room so I’m not alone!”
