His last speech to a Rotary club was in1986. He was speaking as Student of the Month, named by his school in Mississippi.

He is proud to have reached the point where he is President of one of the finest colleges in the country. But he says this is not about him—he sees himself as a someone with responsibility to instill hope in a community that is facing so many challenges—Covid, economic distress and food and housing insecurity. Leaders are required to inspire others to act. He cites a song by Jay Moss: no matter who or what you are—use your gifts in service to others.  
He looks forward very mush to his relationship with Rotary and the community at large!
