We're a major sponsor of MerleFest this year

We decided to spend some of our marketing funds across the mountains in North Carolina this year.  We have online programs and scholarship programs targeted for border states.  We'll hand out ETSU merchandise listing our School of Continuing Studies and Academic Outreach website and see if our visits increase.  This is from the High Country Press, where high refers to the elevation, not the mental state of the MerleFest audience.
