A TRIBUTE Our college yearbook would not be complete without some tribute to our president. Dr. Geo. S. Sexton has done more than any other one man — we believe we are safe in saying more than any two men — for the development of a greater college. No other person has given so whole heartedly of his time, effort and personality; no other has had his efforts so crowned with success. When Dr. Sexton became president of Centenary in 1921, he found it a tiny college, not yet recovered from its almost dis- astrous move from Jackson. The college proper was considered almost as an appendage of the academy. Only a few students were matriculated. The professors were few and poorly paid. Through constant effort, which included campaigns to enlist the interest and financial support of the people of the state, se- curing new teachers, and increasing the enrollment, Dr. Sexton has succeeded in building the foundations of a great institution. By his personal magnetism Dr. Sexton has attracted many new students. By that same personality he has kept the wheels running smoothly. Every student of Cen tenary College knows that in Doc George, he has a true friend, a strong ally and a sympathetic confidant. It means much to a college boy, away from home perhaps for the first time, lonesome, and in trouble, to know that there is a friend in the president ' s office. It is of inestimable value to a college to have a man as president who can see things from the student ' s point of view. To us, Dr. Sexton is a vital part of Centenary ; we almost say sometimes that he is Centenary. His personality pervades the place. His optimism and confidence strike a keynote that is found throughout the college. No busier man can be found anywhere in Shreveport. His office hours are elastic enough to cover calls at any hour of the night or day. He has given and is giving unceasingly of his time and effort for each student of Centenary College . He works incessantly, now here, now away on speaking tours, now at edu- cational conventions and conference meetings, and again on mis- sions for the financial welfare of his pet hobby and his prime interest. Through his interviews with millionaires, business men and noted educators, he is never too busy for a cheerful good morn- ing, a smile and a personal greeting for the newest freshman. That is why we call him our own " Doc George. "
