Nearly 70 campus and community members attended Lycoming College's 6th Annual Black History Month Dinner. Lycoming alumnus Dr. Walter Dunston served as guest speaker for the Feb. 5 gathering, where he shared stories about his family's long and proud tradition of becoming dentists and his own 30-plus years in the field.
Several of Dunston's remarks were directed toward the many students in attendance. He told them that in order to be successful in life, they must take risks. He added that success would come with using common sense and having will power and self-control.
"Thank God for something every day," Dunston told the students. "Learn to focus on what you are doing. Follow your dreams, no matter how long they take. It's not the journey, but the destination."
