Success by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

Lynda McDuff has had tremendous success throughout her career as so eloquently described by Emerson. The Polk State College Foundation Board and Team, and the many students who will “breathe easier” because of the scholarship offered in honor of Lynda’s phenomenal works greatly appreciate your donation. Thank you so very much for your support that will transform lives through the power of a higher education in recognition of Lynda’s retirement.
