NEAL— IOLA JONES FINE ARTS AUDITORIUM. IT WAS A SUPERB PERFORMANCE! 129 130 AND WE ALL HAD A MERRY CHRISTMAS!131REV. JAMES BLASSINGAME PRESIDENT STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Message From the SGA President Horace Mann, an American educator, once wrote, "A human being is not in any proper sense, a human being, until he is educated". Today, there is an urgent need for education. Education, together with Christianity, is the black man’s only means of retaliation against inequality and injustice. We have come a long way. but we still have a long way to go. It is because of institutions like Morris College that we have come thus far. Morris College is one among the 107 predominantly black institutions of higher learning in this nation. It has a great history of educational and religious programs that have enhanced its students to strive for excellence. This fine institution was the beginning of a prominent career for previous Morris students. Morris offers an excellent quality of teaching and a competent faculty and staff whose priority is geared to the complete success of its students. Our motto is “Enter to learn. Depart to serve”. My fellow students, I urge each of you to gear your concerns to your studies which should be your first priority. We. as students should keep in mind that education will become more and more demanding for the future leaders of the world. Bachelor and master degrees are becoming more and more a requisite, and further study is being required after job placement. The founding fathers of this great institution envisioned a place where young black men and women would feel the necessity of having had the opportunity to achieve a college education that would open doors which otherwise would be closed. We, as participants, must not let the dream of our forefathers dry up like a raisin in the sun; we must work and sec it become a reality. I think the words of David Starr Jordan sums it up best, “Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it." 132 -1980-81 SGA OFFICERS Front L to R — Glenda Howard. 2nd Vice-President.

Now that you have had the opportunity to peruse this edition of the Hornet Yearbook. I hope that these pages have brought back some of your fond memories of the 1980-81 school year. Hopefully, you have had as much fun thumbing through pages as we have had hard work in putting it together — and that’ll be a lot of fun. 1 would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to a number of persons who helped make this edition possible. Thanks to Dr. Richardson and the administration for strong support. We never had any problems getting our requisitions approved (as long as we kept them within reason). A special thanks to my Assistant Editor, Cathy Green, and my Associate Editor, Faith Coe. and all the members of our loyal and industrious staff. Also to our Advisor, Mr. J. David Weeks, who spent long hours with us. always lending a guiding hand, and who treated us to a nice pizza party once all the work had been done. Finally, we extend appreciation to the Delmar Company and our Yearbook Representative, Mr. W. B. Bullock (and his photographer Mr. Brown). Also, the School Photographer. Mr. Walden Harris. THANKS TO ALL AND HAPPY SUMMER!! iso Debra Shivers Editor-In-Chief
