Advice to Students
Believe in and get involved in something that is bigger than you are. It can put any problems you have into perspective. Participation in activities can keep you focused on where you can make a difference rather than on things you can't control. You can do more than you think -- both in school and out--when you are passionate about something. Believe in possibilities.
