Congratulations Class of 2014

You've been enriched in countless ways. There's no better way to make your mark on the world and to share that abundance with others. My constant prayer for myself is to be used in service for the greater good. Dr. King said, "Not everybody can be famous. But everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service." Those of you who are history scholars may know the rest of that passage. He said, "You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato or Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love." In a few moments, you all will be Lumberton High School Graduates of 2014. You have the heart and the smarts to go with it. And it's up to you to decide, really, where will you now use those gifts? You've got the diploma, so go out and get the lessons, 'cause I know great things are sure to manifest in your lives. In closing. I would like to congratulate Valedictorian Bernesha McLemore on her many accomplishments. Michael Thurmond said
"God is just. He deposits just as much genius i those living in apartments as he does in the suburbs. Just as many lawyers and legislators and the state directors can and have been in sharecroppers' shacks as in penthouses and high income neighborhoods."
You all have a bright future of endless opportunities. Never allow others to marginalize your dreams or accomplishments. Peace and Blessings!
