Over the years, we have talked with our students about creating a lasting legacy. I want to remind them that their lives are legacies, that every improvement they make will help them build a better legacy; hopefully, their lives will serve to inspire others.
I want each senior to know that nothing is beyond his or her ability. As President Obama has clearly demonstrated, if you can dream it, you can work to make it the reality. Finally I am reminded of Clark Atlanta University's slogan, " “I’ll find a way or make one”, which keeps me believing that great things can always be accomplished, if we remain committed to our cause.
