Knoxville (WVLT) A show of solidarity across the nation for Virginia Tech community including support right here in East Tennessee.
Stylists at Salon Visage wore ribbons today in Virginia Tech colors.
They also held a moment of silence at noon.
At the Phillip Fulmer Golf Classic, Offensive Coordinator David Cutcliffe wore a Hokie sweatshirt, and even Coach Fulmer doned the maroon and orange.

"I think everybody from a national standpoint, everybody's heart goes out to the families that are affected, to the entire university community, to the Blacksburg community, for that matter," Said Coach Fulmer. "It certainly raises awareness from a safety standpoint and to help young people. And in coaching, that's the world we're in so we're glad to show our support."
