ONCE AGAIN, your president takes this means of expressing to you the sincerest
V gratitude of which he is capable for the constructive relationship which has been
manifest between you and the institution during the past nine months. I repeat
what I have said to you before, that great teachers and great students with purposeful
ideas and ambitions, properly related, produce great institutions. You selected for
your school one founded on the basic truths set up by our Lord, and I am offering
the prayer that your lives may show the fruition which should result from contact
with an institution so founded.
Hardin-Simmons University, devoted first to character building and second to
scholarship, is destined to live on to serve in the great western empire, but we must
have the earnest cooperation and the sympathetic aid of all those who love the ideals
and standards which have made the school what it is today. To every friend of
Christian education, to every ex-student, to every alumnus, I pass on the challenge
to accept your share of the responsibility to the end that we build for a greater future
by far than any hope we have had in the past.
Here’s what’s next.
