I have been a supporter of Troy University over the years. Troy is a great school and it does a tremendous job of preparing its students to live productive lives once they graduate. We currently have several graduates of Troy University working for our firm. I have always respected Chancellor Jack Hawkins and it was quite an honor when Jack invited me to give the commencement address at the Fall ceremony on Dec. 11.
Graduates and their families gathered at the Trojan Arena all ready to celebrate a great achievement. I promised to keep my remarks to 10 minutes and I believe I came very close to doing so. I will admit it was a hard thing for me to do. That’s because there is so much to tell young folks who are embarking on a new chapter in their lives. If nothing else I hope they took away the importance of maintaining the proper balance in their lives with God at the forefront.
I just told the graduates exactly what I tell young lawyers in our firm and that is they must set priorities in their lives. Those priorities should always put God first, their family second and their work next in line. When God is always in first place, that makes the other two much easier to handle. My prayer is for each of the graduates enter this new chapter of their lives with great hope and expectations. If they don’t recall anything else I told them, I hope they remember to set the proper priorities for their lives.
