Robert Cairns, former real estate developer, visited the school and met with students. He advised them to “think beyond today, have a goal for the future and work on a daily basis to do the best you can to move forward toward your long-term goal.” He offered the analogy of being out at sea in a rowboat and the need to keep looking for shore – “your goal” – or your survival chance is slim to none. He suggested they not become distracted and lose focus, to go to work early and stay late, and to exceed expectations. He also recommended that they learn from everything they do, and once they start earning money, to keep more than they spend.
