A middle-aged man (everyone between 30 and 90 falls roughly into that category for me these days) stopped me after an event a few days ago.  He didn’t tell me his name and, after he spoke a few words, he moved away as another person stepped up to have a word with me.  The anonymous person said this:  “I want you to know how much those of us in the community appreciate the work that your people do outside the campus.  We are glad that Samford is here.”  A strong affirmation from a new and unknown friend. 

The world is better because of Samford.
