The President's Post
       On Friday, October 3rd, Ozarks is scheduled to celebrate the successful completion of our five-year, $60 million Campaign TO PRESERVE THE PRIDE, TO KEEP THE PROMISE, the most successful capital campaign in our history. The occasion will mark the close to an amazing chapter at Ozarks. When the PRIDE & PROMISE Campaign began in October of 1998, the original goal was $55 million. After surpassing that amount, we decided to increase the goal another $5 million.
   During these tough economic times, there were days I thought the decision to increase our goal was a mistake, that we had probably exceeded our capability. Today, having also surpassed the new goal, I realize our self-imposed increase was merely another incentive for us to work even harder. And we did. So, on October 3, when we celebrate our success as a campus community within the soul of Ozarks, Munger Chapel, we will be celebrating our combined faith, our generous donors, our commitment to students, and ourselves.
   Sam Walton developed a list of “Ten Rules That Work,” and his Rule #6 was:
CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESSES.
   Let’s do just that, and let’s celebrate with pride and promise!
