A message from High Point University President Dr. Martinson
ongratulations Class of 1998
We are proud of you. When I
was a boy, I learned a verse by
Longfellow which has haunted
me in a good way:
Lives of great men [women] all
We can make our lives sublime,
And departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.
What a splendid message that
sent to me in my youth - it still
does. Each of us is special, and
we want to use our live for
something that counts. We want
purpose and direction. I prayed
for that in my youth, and I still
do. I think all of us want purpose
to our existence, that which
motivates us to do good and
even great things. What is good?
What is great? Goodness and
even greatness to me is giving
from the heart, anything else is
a cheat on life.
In spite of what we may read
and hear about our society in
need, I have great faith in
students. You are the future, and
I have faith in you. Our prayers
go with you always.
With highest regard,

We arrived on campus our freshmen year knowing no one. As we
began to participate in activities, we recognized faces and remembered
names. Acquaintances and friendships were formed as we served our
campus and our community. As seniors, we realized the value of that
community and the process which brought us to that point.
