Golden Quotes

By Matthew Snead

A favorite quote, just like body language, can reveal a person’s traits and belief systems. In this series, faculty, support staff and administrators share words of wisdom and encouragement that inspire them. We hope it helps you continue to learn about the adults influencing your life and even find ways they are similar to you. Today we hear from School Counselor and Department Chair Shaneka Ferrell.

‘Tough times don’t last, but tough people do’

“We all go through difficult seasons in life. We experience failure, loss, and many other challenging situations. There are days when we may want to throw in the towel and walk away from the obstacle. It seems like the easiest thing to do, right? But when you look back, you realize that the situation didn’t last, and you have moved on. I might have bent a little, but it didn’t break me. This has taught me that when you do not give up and you don’t relent, your outcome is becoming a stronger and more resilient person.”
