About Principals Ed Seiber & Stacey KirbyWeíre both Southerners by birth and inclination. Southerners have a strong connection to the region, the landscape, the people and our culture of hospitality. Itís this hospitality and deep-rootedness that gives the Southern culture its current resonance. We believe without that grounding in and understanding of the traditions, you canít truly explore new territory.
