Graduates adorned with 
their honors and regalia

ents and friends. 

Dr. James Stitt leads the 
commencement proces- 
sional as we (again) cel- 
ebrate outdoors on the 
Roberts Hall lawn. 

Years ago I became acquainted with Richard Salmon. I never knew him personally, 
but I became acquainted with him through his writings. He was an artist and an 
author who was greatly influenced by his surroundings in the hunting and fishing 
country of central Pennsylvania. 

Salmon tells of a hunting dog in the woods, an English setter whose tail is all tangled 
with dock burs. When we see such things our first reaction is to pull the burs off the 
tail: but in reality, this beautiful dog is performing a very useful task, the task of 
transporting seeds that were made to stick on dogs and other animals so they would 
be transported across the fields and throughout the woods. The dog and his burs are 
all a part of a giant plan; so are we. 

You the class of 1999 are here for a purpose and you will leave here as part of that 
giant plan. Before the foundation of the world, God had a plan for your life and mine. 
That is how important we are! May you find your part in that plan, and fulfill it as 
God enables you to do so, and may you be truly blessed in the process. 

With highest regard, 

Jacob C. Martinson
