"I believe that schools should have the courage to be great. Here I refer to the greatness Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. describes when he says, ‘If you want to be great—wonderful. But recognize that everybody can be great. Because everybody can serve…You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.’ The challenge then, for any school, is to determine what grace looks like in its community, what it means to serve, and how its members steward and protect the school’s soul."
