The keynote speaker was Orage Quarles, III, president and publisher of the News and Observer. Quarles spoke on the importance of university aged people during the Civil Rights movement. Quarles went on to encourage students to make a difference. "You have to make a difference in your life, at St. Aug and in the community in which you live, " stated Quarles.
