Here is a photo of Dr. Opincar addressing graduating students at a 2012 commencement ceremony. In this address, Dr. Opincar’s message was to live in the moment, pursue excellence in all aspects of life, and don’t let your thinking limit your future. And, most of all, never let anyone dismiss you! Life has a way of grinding us down. We frequently encounter people who prejudge and want to dismiss us as not worthy because we come from the wrong family, economic circumstances, ethnic background, or social standing. These are some of the life principles Dr. Opincar teaches to his students.
