An Uncommon Student!
President Hoover made these remarks by telephone from New York City to Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio on November 11, 1948
“Let us remember that the great human advances… were brought about by distinctly uncommon men and women with vital sparks of leadership. It is a curious fact that when we get sick, we want an uncommon doctor; if we have a construction job, we want an uncommon engineer….
Whatever these forces may be, you are striving to become uncommon men and women. And the future of America will be in your hands. Our full hope of recovery in the moral and spiritual world is a wealth of uncommon men and women among our people. It is our educational institutions that must promote and train them.”
