Favorite quote?
“You’re better than good enough. You may not come from a well-to-do financial background, you may not come from an affluent social background, you may not have glided through the University of South Carolina with the greatest of ease. But if you’re willing to work hard, sacrifice and struggle, then I proclaim today that you’re better than good enough.” Dr. Ronald E. McNair
