one's mind. She
said she'd "nev

Church for again bringing us an
excellent guest speaker. The Rev.

the importance of a college educa

school today is of the same im

of thirty years ago.
He also stressed the thought that
it's in the light of what you are
and not what you could be that
others see you. That's excellent
advice for any one.
