Pelé, the retired Brazilian professional football (soccer) player, once said, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” This sentiment was expressed on several occasions to Salus University’s graduating class throughout the week of May 21, leading up to Spring Commencement on Thursday.
