2010 Alumni Sgt. Daniel Glisson, USMC speaks at Annual Graduation Luncheon

Daniel is currently stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C.  He did two tours of duty in Afghanistan and served as marksmanship instructor on Paris Island, S.C., where he earned the highest score in shooting because of his expertise as a sharpshooter.  Below are an excerpt of the remarks he delivered to the class of 2017.

  • Thrive outside your comfort zone and never be afraid of being afraid.
  • Never look behind yourself for more than a few moments, and look to the future instead.
  • Yesterday was easy because today we are climbing higher.
  • Find someone who has been there before, and let them guide you along the way.
  • No matter what your goals are, make them attainable.
  • No matter what obstacles you face, you can defeat them.
  • No matter what your fight happens to be, make it a fight for a better tomorrow.
