Planting Hope

"He or she that does no more than the average will never rise above the average"
Pearl Fryar turned discarded plants into an amazing topiary garden success. Moving forward from that success, he established a scholarship fund to nurture community college students. Everyone, not just those in the top 25% of students, must find and develop their talent and work very, very hard.  Success can be attained by all.

As Fryar states:
"I tell students, you make sure you take someone from the bottom.

It's not going to be what you accomplish in life that's going to make you feel good about yourself. It's going to be the people you help make a difference in their lives."

What a great message as we begin a new academic year!  J.T.
