“Attitude is everything. And… attitude is a decision. Choose to surround yourself with positive personalities and messages. Choose to participate in positive experiences and activities. Choose to fill your mind with positive thoughts, information and expectations.
Make no mistake. Life will have obstacles and setbacks, but many of our Ellis Scholars have distinguished themselves by overcoming these challenges. They make conscience efforts not to indulge in pity or remorse. They take responsibility for their futures.
Remember, the world is waiting for you. Get on it. There is work to be done.
We’re proud of you. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.”
