One Day: A Global Scholars Poem

Pictured above are 41 of the more than 60 first fall cohort of Global Scholars who attended the Acceleration Point and Pinning Ceremony last week. Also in the photo are members of the Global Scholars Advisory Board: Jim Roxlo, Rachel Hanson, Lillie Wills, Bruce Stewart and Alan Cates. The poem below was compiled by Juliette Biondi, Global Scholars Advisor, who asked the students to complete the phrase: “One day I will change the world by…”

One day I will change the world by improving the survival rate of cancer…One day I will change the world by promoting fairness and equality in the criminal justice system…One day I will change the world by making a nuclear power plant more efficient… One day I will change the world by helping one person at a time… One day I will change the world by using modern day engineering techniques to advance less privileged countries like Haiti, Uganda & Belize . . . One day I will change the world by helping deaf children experience the world without the limitations that society may bare them… One day I will change the world by changing the lives of those around me… One day I will change the world by affecting every person that I meet positively…One day I will change the world by helping others as a writer and humanitarian… One day I will change the world by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to a third world country… One day I will change the world by contributing to a future of affordable, reliable energy that will power the next generation… One day I will change the world by using my knowledge to help poor orphanage children in the world… One day I will change the world by using all the knowledge I will gain from Chattanooga State… One day I will change the world by making computers and other tools that are essential for communication more accessible to the average person… One day, I will change the world by redefining the meaning of contentment with one’s life… One day, I will change the world by writing interesting, thought-provoking novels that inspire readers and trigger much-needed social and political paradigm shifts.

Approximately a third of our scholars are from rural areas outside of Chattanooga, and one student is from as far away as Santo Domingo. Read a recent press article here, and learn more about our Global Scholars honors program here.
