Messages to Students: (1) "Stay in school." (2) "There are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. Number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy... and don't give up, don't ever give up!" -Coach Jimmy Valvano
