David Mallach encouraged TROY graduates to embrace the next
chapter of their lives with a positive attitude.
Speaking during Friday's fall commencement ceremony inside
Trojan Arena on the Troy Campus, Mallach told graduates that
this ceremony was not just an ending but also a beginning.
"More than four decades ago, I sat in a chair waiting to walk
across the stage, just as you are today," Mallach said. "For
many of you, you have completed the last class you will ever
take. Now you have to put all you have learned and experienced
together and move on to the next phase of your life. Troy
University has equipped you with the tools you need to be
successful and now it is up to you. If you work hard and
maintain a positive attitude, you will succeed."
While change is a constant in life, Mallach encouraged students
to not forget the lessons learned from their mentors. Mallach
paid tribute to his mentor, Dr. Johnny Long, TROY's director of
bands emeritus, who was in attendance at Friday's ceremony.
"I credit Johnny Long with all of my success in my family and
business life," he said.

“Unless your assets are
large enough that you don’t need to worry about rising interest
rates, this book is essential reading. I have read all of David
Mallach’s books. Each one presents an interesting, easily read
discussion of fairly complex material. Myth is no exception.
Don’t wait to read it until interest rates have gone up and your
bond portfolio is way down.” Doug
