Nido Qubein is indeed worth his salary at High Point University (Dec. 15 letter). He teaches a required motivational class to freshmen that is so inspiring it makes the laziest students in the world realize that anything is possible if they are willing to work hard and have a positive attitude.
And by the way, he has given millions of his own money to High Point University. This small university is a real gem for North Carolina. The professors are very student-focused, and the campus is spectacularly beautiful!
