  1. "I came to William and Mary because it was the best - the most comprehensive academic and athletic opportunity that I had. This venerable institution very quickly informed me that I had made the right choice. I went home after the first year in the summer and I got a job right away working at a company called Honeywell and the reason I got the job was just because I went to W&M. . .This university endows us something. 324 years - there’s a level of respect that is virtually unparalleled. So with that we have to understand that we are heirs to access. In other words, we have some things that are privilege to us that others don’t have just because of our membership. . .You see, attending this institution you are part of a tradition that goes back 324 years. . .it suggested that the more educated we became, the better community, the better state, the better nation we would be. We are couriers of freedom, why? Because true freedom is intellectual emancipation. It is the freedom of the mind that is true freedom. I want to challenge you to protect that, to be lifelong learners. Never stop learning; never stop growing. . .
Why W&M? It was obvious. It was the obvious solution. William & Mary, well, membership has its privileges." -Michael “Pinball” Clemons ’89, L.H.D ‘17 #whywm #wmcharterday
