I attended the awards ceremony at Calhoun Middle/High School on Thursday evening to present the Mollohan scholarships. It turned out to be an inspiring event for me.

Students of many backgrounds, with dreams and goals for a future, took their turns at marching down the aisle to be recognized and receive their awards. Some of them will be the first generation in their families to pursue a college education. Most of them held their heads high, walked with a purpose to their steps and a sense of pride in their accomplishments. It is not easy to complete the requirements for graduation and fill out all of the applications for financial aid.

These students have an obligation to their parents and even back to the first settlers of the county to make the best out of their opportunities. They are fulfilling hopes that were only dreams in earlier generations.

Some students do not have the family support to take this step toward the future, but this is no reason to give up.

George Bernard Shaw said, “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them they make them.”

The person who has no goal, who doesn’t know where he’s going, must have a life of frustration, fear, anxiety and worry. If he thinks about nothing, he becomes nothing. It is even written in the book of Matthew in the Bible, “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

The human mind contains possibilities beyond our wildest expectations. It will return anything we plant.

Go for it, Seniors! You can do anything with your life . . .
