Honoring My Grandfather

November 17, 2014


From Matt Quigley ’16  - Matt offered this reflection about his grandfather during Chapel on November 5.

My grandfather died two summers ago from natural causes. At his funeral, over five hundred people attended, including friends, family and acquaintances.

My grandfather taught me to put education in front of athletics, but more importantly he taught me to apply myself in all facets of life. At the age of 80, with various types of cancer, he still played golf every day and regularly attended club meetings of all sorts.

To honor my grandfather, I limit excuses and live life to fullest, just like how he would if he were still here.
