Spartans Will

MSU News - April 1, 2015 - 1:58pm
"It's not just what we do, but why and how we do it, that distinguishes us as Spartans. As Spartans, we have the heart, the talent and tenacity to make an extraordinary impact." Those are the inspiring words of my ultimate boss around this place, Lou Anna K. Simon, the president of MSU. I simply love that quote and all the meaning behind it. It's a pretty awesome time to be a Spartan, isn't it? Spring finally has sprung (I hope) and we're in the national spotlight thanks to Tom Izzo and our team defying the odds and making it to the Final Four. Heart? Talent? Tenacity? Check, check and check when it comes to this team. They've figured out that they each have a role to play, but when they work together, the result is pretty incredible. They've figured out just what "Spartans Will" means to them and they've shown it every time they've stepped onto the court this tournament. Though that quote can certainly be applied to our basketball team, it wasn't said about them. It has a much, much bigger meaning than just athletics. Those student athletes are just a small number of the half a million Spartans there are in this world - all who demonstrate exactly what President Simon was talking about every day.
