Dr. Gary McCalcb vice president for
university advancement spoke at the
organizational meeting of the Student
McCalcb said that while he was a
student at ACU he was sophomore class
president junior senator and SA president
his senior year.
Because he looks back and sees things
he would have done differently he wants
to teach Senate members to sec the impact
of their position.
"Student behavior influences student
behavior" McCalcb said. He told SA
members to be examples and influence
others for the good always.
The characteristics for excellent
organizations arc action and getting close
to people McCalcb said. "Give attenl ion to
people not programs" he said.
McCalcb gave seven quotes for the SA to
use as guidelines for each day of the week
during next year.
For Sunday McCalcb gave a quote from
Robert Grccnlcaf's book "Servant
Leadership." "People will respond only to
individuals who are chosen as leaders
because they are proven and trusted
servants" Grccnlcaf said.
McCalcb offered a quote from the book
"Excellence" by John W. Gardner
secretary of health education and welfare
from I965-I9C8 for Monday "It is neither
intellect nor talent that Is the key to being
a leader. The key is commitment to the
highest values. Values live or die In the
arena of every day behavior" Gardner
Peter Drucker a leading management
authority says "The key of a leader is not
in what he demands In others but what he
demands in himself." McCalcb suggested
this quote for Tuesday.
"Prefer the hard" a statement by
Marcus Aurcllus n Roman stoic was
suggested for Wednesday.
For Thursday McCalcb suggested a
quote by Albert Schweitzer a French
Protestant clergyman. "Example is not
merely a way of influencing others it is
the only way" Schweitzer said
McCalcb suggested Proverbs 27:6 a
quote from Solomon for Friday. "Faithful
arc the wounds of a friend and profuse arc
the kisses of an enemy "
Finally from Esther 4: 15. McCalcb
suggests "Who knows but you have come
to the kingdom for such a time as this."
