The future of Mount St. Mary’s University lies within the foundations of its past. As Charles Hodges, the valedictorian of the class of 1958, stated: “The future that awaits us is as boundless as our vision and our imagination, as rich and as full as our spirit, as rewarding and gratifying as our courage and skill will make it. Armed with these weapons, we will wrest success from its challenge. We are well prepared to make our way … for here we have learned responsibilities, an obligation to our parents, our college, our country, our God.”
