Monday Mission, December 12, 2016

She sent me this message a few days ago, illustrating the commitment of the members of the volleyball team as they hosted (and eventually won) the SoCon tournament:

After the win (in the tournament) on Sunday, it was decided that the volleyball team would not attend classes on Monday in order to prepare for the last night.  Kind of like it would be if the championship was somewhere else.  I spoke with Larry Harper, who has a couple of the players in his class this semester.  They had a test on Monday and he had communicated with them that he was more than happy to arrange for them to take it later.  They told him that they had found time on Sunday to prepare and that they would be in class on Monday to take the test, in spite of the fact that no one was requiring it!

The world is better because so many Samford students exceed expectations.
