54   Shades of Gmduate Students
 With Assistantships
   And what an impact they will make!
 A common vein that seemed to run
 through this caliber of student was a
 strong desire to make themselves and
 their professions the best they could
 be.
   "I see a special opportunity as a
teacher," added Waite. "I see the
chance to build a child's self-concept
to what it ought to be:'
   "As a teacher 1 can even affect a
child's parents by showing a special
love toward their kids;' said Benton. "I
can make a difference in a few kids'
lives and who knows - one may grow
up to be somebody important:'
   Someone once said, "There have
been a lot of important people in every
'important' person's life:' <:)
