^Zl Zenith 2004 Websters dictionary defines a contrast as the difference or degree of difference between things having similar or comparable natures; a comparison of similar objects to set off their dissimilar qualities; a person or thing that exhibits its differences when compared with another. Life is full of many of these contrasts. From good and bad, right and wrong, practically even thing has its contrast. The students at this university encompass this concept. We each have different backgrounds, values, opinions, religions, ways of looking at the world around us. Together we make this university what it is. We provide and compare our experiences with those around us. We help each other to understand that contrasts enrich our lives and provide us with different ways of approaching the same idea. ^From night and dav, back and forth, up and down, near and far, old and lew we come together with a common purpose. We come to learn, grow. jjteach, and provide an atmostphere which enhances these activities. This is die one thread that ties each and ever)' one of us together.

Coggins Professor of Business (1989-2003) "On October 10th, 2003, a former faculty member and dear friend to so many of us, students, fac- ulty, and staff mem- bers alike, died at his home in Lexington, North Carolina. Dr. Coggins was a loving husband, fa- ther, grandfather, and an outstanding teacher in the Business Depart- ment. He was a Viet- nam War veteran, hav- ing served in the Ma- rines as a chief Drill instructor. He taught here in our Business Department for 14 years. George Coggins retired last year, and was honored at commencement in 2003. He was loved and respected. In 14 years, I heard not one negative word about him; he was a faculty giant and a debonair Christian gentleman, one in whom the word of God sparkled with graciousness and charm. He was a former Marine and sterling business professor, and head of Campus Crusade, a special human being. I dedicate this message to his memory' - The words of President Martinson at a memorial service held in October. "Everyone always seems to have that one profes- sor thev always look to as a parental figure. Someone that teaches them not only a class- room lesson, but a life lesson. Dr. Coggins played that role for me. Dr. Coggins truly cared not only for his students' success in the classroom. but for their success in life as well. 1 will always remember Dr. Coggins and the main lessons I have learned!' Meredith Mackoy HPU Graduate 2003 "George Coggins' influ- ence on the School of Business was profound. He touched the lives of those around him with his generous spirit as he selflcsslv gave of his time and expertise. All were touched by his spirituality. George will be remembered as a remarkable person, educator, and scholar." Jim Wehrley Associate Professor of Business and W.

Every athlete knows the taste of sweet success and the taste of bitter defeat. For, just like most things in life, there are ups and downs in competitive sport. This past year, our University has enjoyed immense successes. The mens tennis team, mens cross country team, and the > womens soccer team each won the title of Big South Conference Champion in 2003. These successes merely created a thirst for more. How ever, without the downs in competition, one would not appreciate the ups as much. Kadi athlete and team has experienced a bad game, a bad season, or even a bad year. That is all part of life as a competitve athlete. But those experiences make the taste of victory oh so sweet. 82 Athletics Eye on the ball Kiiili Wines, Alex I homp- son, Mat! Wood, and Kyle DeKlerk «.iit for ihi- l>.ill to [»- thrown into pla) .

The organization was started in 200 I -2002 school year by an ambi- tious group of ladies who wanted to enrich the cam- pus by adding another or- ganization that embodies sisterhood. The organi- zation has survived the main' pit (alls that surround a young organization to test their endurance on .1 college campus. The la- dies of Alpha Kappa Al- pha have taken these ob- stacles in stride and are inc r e a s i n g I v b e c o m i n g known on the HPU campus for their ability to prevail and excel as an organization. The ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha persistant I v move ahead with their quest through 1 1 leir v< dunteer efforts ai ic I their goals to promote sis- terhood not only in the black community but for all women on the I IPU campus. This year the last of the founding ladies will be graduating, but they are proud of what the organization has become in such a short time and hope that the organiza- tion will continue to grow long after they have gone on to become profession- als, wives, and mothers.

They allow lis to better understand others, and ourselves. When we learn how great the contrasts can be in those around us, it gives us a more worldly perspective, and an accepting attitude for that which is different. Though each of us have our own experiences and history, there is one that we share. We embrace the contrasts, however, we exault this similarity.
