We need to protect our freedoms. As you graduates move on, you'll be touched by this in your lives. We can't afford to lose this fight." On a lighter note, he piles on more advice to the enthusiastic and happy group, "Today (last Saturday) is not an end, but a beginning for you. This College, like for me years ago, has prepared you very well for the next level, so neither accept the status quo nor fear failure." In the broader arena, he foresees, "Our nation needs your energy, dedi- cation and intelligence to progress. Come grow with me, this nation and the world. You'll, then, be success- ful." To illustrate, he noted a lesson in life given by one of his old professors who placed an empty jar on his desk, He then filled it with all of the golf balls that would fit, asking the stu- dents, "Is this jar full?" Their reply, "Yes!" His retort, "No!" Then, he proceeded to drop sand into it and, finally, two cups of Coffee, watching the jar fill up completely. "He explained to us that the jar repre- sented our lives and the golf balls were the major things in our lives, so we needed to master those, first, be- fore dealing with the smaller stuff, like the sand," Godfrey relates. When a student asked about why coffee was used instead of water, the professor replied, "Always take the time to have a couple cups of coffee with old friends," he recalled with a big smile (laughter). In conclusion, Dr. Godfrey, who is currently a Professor at the Army's War College in Carlisle, Penn., em- phasizes to the 2004 graduates, "Never, never quit!" Moreover, his personal formula to succeed is to "plan" your goals, "prepare" to ac- complish them and "pursue" them with persistence.

His departure is expected to be a larger loss to the entire College, too, because his wife, Donna, has been GSC's energetic director of admissions and marketing. In that capacity, she's increased the College's once-dwindling enrollment for this next academic year.
