As Nick Fantasia, President of the Fairmont State Alumni Association, finished his greetings during the Inauguration of President Maria C. Rose, a young man dressed in a tuxedo stands from behind the orchestra. As the musicians lift their instruments and the first notes are played, the young man stretches, yawns, and begins walking forward. What happens next is astonishing to all in attendance.
