He quoted Proverbs 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make straight your paths,” and said that would lead to exercising good judgment.

“Always have God in view, to see him as an ever-present help,” said Davis. “Don’t take a step without his advice. Consult his word, and don’t forget to observe the footsteps of his providence.”

Davis urged the students to “find their greatness” by discovering their own passions in life.

“Greatness is not in one special place, or one special person,” he said. “Greatness has no gender, has no economic class, and doesn’t ever require you have a perfect track record. Don’t let anyone cheat you out of greatness.”

He told the senior class “I am equipped with greatness. I have greatness inside of me” and had them recite together that they can accomplish with the help of the Lord.

The service opened with a welcome from salutatorian Jathan Martin, and an occasion on the history of baccalaureate from class vice president Stefan DeVaughn. Alex Causey offered a prayer, followed by a reading from Proverbs 3:6 from Logan McLeod. Later in the service, McLeod sang to guitar accompaniment from Cameron White; both young men long active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Savannah Cook offered a sing, in which she reminded the gathering that “I want to do something that matters/ I want to do something better, with the time I’ve been given.”
