One song can spark a moment

One flower can wake the dream

One tree can start a forest

One bird can herald spring

One smile begins a friendship

One handclasp lifts a soul

One star can guide a ship at sea

One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation

One sunbeam lights a room

One candle wipes out darkness

One laugh will conquer gloom

One step must start each journey

One word must start a prayer

One hope will raise our spirits

One touch can show you care

One voice can speak with wisdom

One heart can know what's true

One life can make a difference

That difference starts with you.


Next year, we will take a journey together to truly make a difference in the lives of our students, our campus, our community, and within ourselves. One of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself or anyone else is inspiration. Inspiration to get in touch with your dreams. Inspiration to seek out your deepest passions. Inspiration to make a difference in the world, a difference that only you can make. This book that I want to share with you is not about success; it's a book about significance. It's not a book about making a living; it's a book about making a life. It's not about fame or acclaim; it's about contribution and service. Instead of asking; "What can I get from life?", watch what happens when you ask, "What can I give?"

Below is a sneak peek of next year's campus focus and book study. It only takes ONE person to make a difference. That person is YOU.
