Words of Wisdom

It’s always good to learn from people who have been there and done that, so here is some advice from some very nice people.

Amy Brown- Agricultural Communications student at OSU, “Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams!”

Samantha Kruger- attending The University of Houston, Marketing–Downtown, “Don’t ever lose sight of the goals you have set for yourself. Never let anyone change your aspirations. Remember that you don’t have to please everyone around you as long as you’re happy.”

Larkin Davis- attending Texas Tech University, Agricultural Communications, “Get involved in as many activities as possible when you get to school. Explore your options, but don’t lose your morals.”

Gari Sue Haddock- attending West Texas A&M University, History Education, “Take the stairs and walk as much as possible – by the end of the semester your legs will thank you. And, talk to lots and lots of people with experience and wise advice when you’re trying to decide what major you want or which college to attend. The Bible endorses getting the counsel of others many many times – it’s a wise choice! There’s no reason to try to make such a big decision all on your own.”

Chris McClure- graduate of Texas A&M University, Agriculture Economics, “Choose a degree based on what you love – what God made you to do – not on the amount of money you may or may not make.”

Evelyn Lindsey- graduate of East Texas State University, Business Administration- “Be open to accept God’s plan for your future; which may mean a change in the plans you’ve made for yourself.”

Sunni Jo Stages- graduate of Clarendon College, Applied Science, “Life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we deal with it. Always remember that actions speak louder than words and most importantly, be careful with burning bridges – you never know when you may need to cross back over.”

Janelle Popwell- graduate of West Texas A&M University, Elementary Education, “Don’t be surprised if you meet your best friend at college.”

Lisa Vardeman, attended Angelo State University, Physical Therapy, “You don't see it now, but later you will look back and see how much the decisions you make at this time in your life will have the longest lasting impact on the rest of it.”

Carly Holland- attending Texas Tech University, Accounting, “Just remember, day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become.”

Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference. ~Arie Pencovici
