not an end, but a beginning

Five years from now, you’re the same person except for the people you’ve met and the books you’ve read.
--John Wooden (1910-2010) American basketball coach  

Congratulations to those graduating from Milligan College tomorrow!  I've always found this quote inspiring - impressing on us the need to move forward with purpose. So I think it fits for graduation -- because after all, "commencement" is not about an end, but a beginning. This will be our President Don Jeanes' last commencement before his retirement in July -- so we'll give him our thanks and celebrate and congratulate all that he and his wife Clarinda have accomplished these last fourteen years. More here. Here's to a great new beginning for them and for all those receiving diplomas!

  1. That's the second time I've heard that quote. Very appropriate not just for today but life. Nice shot with great light.
