We will miss the smiU e songs that he sang; we will miss the joy that was spread from his heart; and we will miss his lovely presence. HERMAN had to leave us for a little while. Please do not grieve, shed wild tears. Or hug your sorrows throughout the years. But. start out bravely with a gallant smile; And for his sake, and in his name, live on. Do all things the same. Feed not your loneliness on empty days, But fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer. And he in turn will comfort you and hold you near. Never, never be afraid to die, for HERMAN is waiting for you and me in the sky! James C. Cook (Friend ' MJCMASX U.

Jesse Jackson challenged students to become socially involved in the events of our day during the kick-off of the fall James Weldon Johnson Lecture Artist series. REV. JESSE JACKSON INSPIRES ASPIRATIONS On Wednesday September 25, 1985 the college family was honored to receive a guest speaker, the Rev. Jesse Jackson. A former Democratic Presidential Candidate hopeful and founder of Operation Push. The Rev. Jesse Jackson made an innovative speech. The focal point of his speech consisted of black ' s participation in current and local affairs; especially that of college students in the neighboring communities in which they reside. Moreover, he expounded by letting us know that it is our moral, and ethnic and political responsibility to be aware of issues that coincide with our fundamental rights. For example, black college students should be registered voters, in order to voice our opinion on local and national issues that infringe on our relative rights. Subsequently, Rev. Jackson tried to evoke in his audience the need for this generation to become politically aware and actively involved in the politics of today. Furthermore he instructed us on ways in which we could do this without being indignant or militant. The speech given by Rev. Jackson was indeed refreshing and informative. It was a challenge to all black students who want to willfully take part in the struggle of today. by Jaqueline Swanson CORONATION OF MISS FMC In royal splendor.

Puryear BLACK HISTORY MONTH The history of February as " Black Month " began with a Virginia born black man named Carter Goodwin Woodson. Dr. Woodson strove throughout his lifetime to encourage Black Americans to look at their history. He founded the Association for the study of Negro Life and History in 1915. He set the foundation of Black awareness in the United States of America. On January I, 1916. the Journal of Negro History was published by Dr. Woodson as a way to treat the race scientifically and to publish the findings to the world. Dr. Woodson was also responsible for founding the Associated Publishers, Inc. in 1912. which published books detailing the black man ' s place in history. The annual observance of " Negro History Week " began in 1926. as a result of Dr. Woodson ' s aggressiveness. The second week of February was designated to observe this week because it coincided with the birthdays of the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln and the Black Journalist and Abolitionist Frederick Douglas. Now that the observance has been changed into a month long event, the meaning of the observance has also changed. The month is set aside to instill a sense of togeth- erness of all racial groups. Also it was designed to develop a sense of mutual respect for people of different racial back- grounds and to remind all Americans of their racial identity. GREAT BLACK MEN There ' s a small light in my heart that shines. When I think of those who put their lives on the line. Those who wanted to see their people ' s souls set free; but now are dead and have no chance to see. There is no doubt that many have gone; but their dreams still linger on. Their wisdom and knowledge was beyond their day. yet they left their greatness before they were laid down to stay. To make this world a better place, they died to give their people face. There has to be a reason why they lived, maybe it was just the opportunity to give. Those may be the reasons those great Black men risked their lives; just to see how their people could learn to survive. By Catherine P. Richardson MISS BLACK COLLEGIATE AMERICA PAGEANT CONTESTANTS VISITS FMC J.

Institutions like Florida Memorial College have provided the nation with some noteworthy con- tributions. For example, they have provided the un- dergraduate foundation for 75 percent of Black Americans now holding Ph.D degrees; 85 percent of Black Physicians; SO percent of the Black Federal Judges: 25 percent of the Black Elected Officials, and Black Businessmen and Women. Unfortunately, there are far too few who have sucessfully leap-frogged over the social and economic hurdles. Students in the Honors Program are given the op- portunity to pursue independent academic and intel- lectual growth, to the end that, their innovative and creative thinking powers will develop into maturing and acceptable scholarship. The Honor students are required to produce more than is normally expected to demonstrate effective oral and written communi- cation which exhibits a comprehensive grasp on inte- grated patterns of thought. hill I J A " We have sought exceptional artists and scholars on the local, state and national level in an effort to expose students to the best minds and talents in the humanities area. Our intent is to broaden students ' cultural and personal development. " Dr. Rosalyn Blake-Jones Chairperson. Division of Humanities Director of Honors Program The mode of thinking of the Honors student must reflect depth and superiority based on rigid disci- plines of mind and thought. Honors students are relentlessly encouraged to attain academic excel- lence in all areas of the Honors Program and related disciplines. So that they might become knowledge- able and versatile scholrs. Requirements Entering Freshman with a high school GPA of 3.0 or above are eligible for full participation in the Hon- ors Program, which include academic scholarships, special housing, and Honors Seminar. Freshman and Sophomores in the program must follow the Honors Program curriculum for the first and second years, unless a schedule adjustment has been approved by the Director of the Program. Juniors and Seniors must select at least nine credits per major semester from the list of courses offered in their major or minor disciplines. All registrations, add drops, or schedule adjustments MUST be approved by the Director of the Honor ' s Program.

Currently enrolled students who are not members of the program, but have the necessary GPA, have the opportunity to apply for membership in the Program. Further information may be obtained from the Direc- tor of the Program. — ■ ! f - - student government association award£$$nquet Guest Speaker - 1% ' ffi Qftaaiels of AnifcchS (Church YOU CAN BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE IF YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND YOU MUST ALWAYS KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING 12 SUPERLATIVES 1.

Freshman wins $5,000 scholarship awarded by TIME Florida Memorial College freshman Anthony A. Ikaiddi of Oron. Nigeria, was chosen as the winner of the sixth annual TIME Education Program Student Writing Contest, a national essay writing contest for high school and college students. As winner, he was awarded a $5,000 college scholarship and a three-year subscription to TIME Magazine for his essay titled " Africa ' s Future! How Certain? " Mr. Ikaiddi ' s winning essay was selected from among hundreds of entries submitted by students across the United States and Canada. The essay examines the contradictory yet complementary impulses shaping the future history and development of the African continent. Mr. Ikaiddi ' s entry was sponsored by Florida Memorial College ' s Assistant Professor of Reading. Elizabeth Ligon. Contest entries are evaluated by a panel of educators and TIME Staff members, including senior writers and editors. Entries were judged on the basis of originality, demonstration of research skills, knowledge of subject matter, effective use of language or design, clarity, spelling grammar and punctuation. TIME Education Program Manager. Ester Davis Connelly, in announcing the award, noted Mr. Ikaidda s essay demonstrated the balance between hard facts and humanism that characterizes effective writing. Mr. Ikaidda is the son of Charles and Atim Ikaidda of Oron. Nigeria. ' Africa ' s chances of success, however, stem from the foundation of the first pessimistic conviction, i.e., the clear recognition of Africa ' s present dire condition. Just as the recognition of weakness may be the beginning of strength, provided one has the knowledge, determination and will to transform ignorance into knowledge, weakness into strength and poverty into wealth.

Florida Memorial Collaborates With Neighboring Opportunity School For years, Florida Memorial College and Jan Mann Opportunity School have had an informal relationship. On February 19, 1986, the College formally established Jan Mann as its laboratory school, forming the first such partnership in Dade County and possibly the nation. Conveniently located next door to Florida Memorial, Jan Mann is a temporary alternative for junior high-age youngsters with discipli ne problems. Through the adoption program, would-be teachers at Florida Memorial will start their practical training in classes at Jan Mann. The College will also provide tutoring and counseling to students, while including them in campus events and programs and provide use of college facilities like the computer and science laboratories. " The goal, " said Paul Bell, associate school superintendent for education, " is to make a difference to the youngsters at Jan Mann, who are mostly from inner city neighborhoods. " Dr. C.T, Wright, vice president for academic affairs at Florida Memorial College, said " many of our students have begun to aspire to being part of the establishment. We feel that they can offer role models for the students at Jan Mann. " " This will not be a traditional lab school. We expect to create a model that can be emulated nationally.

Joy, joy. at being on our own; Does it overweigh the insecurities of being alone? New people, a new place, brand new faces. could possible tear a proud heart in two. Accomplishing goals, making friends, and having fun are things we really plan to do. Portraying a good image, and getting into things that swing, play a big part in college too. However, remember the grades, the goals. and the promises that we have made to ourselves so true. Personality has a lot to do with the matter even if you are strong. weak, outgoing, or shy. It ' s up to you to push yourself. hold on. and stop feeling blue. Sherry L.

We must further appreciate what it means for those less physically fortu- nate to have that same opportunity. We the Brothers of Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity. Phi Phi Chapter located here at F.M.C. were proud to be the best of the Mini — Special Olympics here on F.M.C. campus. The Special Olympics consisted of a fun-filled afternoon allowing some 75 mentally re- tarded, emotionally disturbed and physically handi- capped participants to demonstrate the best of their athletic abilities. In such events as 50m. 100m, 400m dashes 4 x 1 00m relays. 25m. 50m wheelchair races plus standing long-jump and softball throw events. Each event was awarded 1st. 2nd. 3rd place medals, addition- ally each participant received ribbons and certificates were given to all attending agencies. That afternoon fulfilled the dreams of many persons and we Phi Phi chapter are pleased that the participants, families and agencies, the college family and our com- munity friends equally benefited from this tremendous service project. Special appreciations are extended to Florida Memori- al College, especially President Willie C. Robinson, Gourmet Food Services, Mr. R. Wilson and Mr. D. Gor- don, all participating agencies and contributors to the Special Olympics last but not least our chapter President. William Frierson who diligently sought to make this project a reality.
