Having been here longer than any other director I have had the opportunity to witness many students' achievements. These acheivements come from outstanding and remarkable young men and women. This webpage serves only as a reflection and memory of these accomplishments that should not be forgotten. It is not a bragging page or a "page of arrogance". Here are a few quotes that express our attitudes and vision of our goals. ~ Clif Dodson
 
 My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
~Helen Hayes
 Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
 I would contend that if you are truly challenging yourself, there is always the potential to fail (or hit lower than the mark you are aiming for). The higher you aim, you will fall closer to true success when you miss your mark.
~anonymous
 We come nearest to being great when we are great in humility.
~Rabindranath Tagore
 Never measure the height of a mountain, until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.
~Dag Hammarskjöld
 No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.
~Denis Waitley
 "I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
~Michael Jordan
