Columnist Steve Hansen’s articles often point to his pride in his family and lessons learned from them. His words are refreshing and uplifting. Thanks for publishing them.

It was good reading that Steven Hansen found more value in working for his education than getting aid in paying for it. It speaks to a proud young man with character and integrity who recognized his education as a very valuable and personal asset that he wanted to pay for and own himself. He wasn’t an entitled kind of man who felt he was owed or deserved or had some right to an education over and above what he would pay for himself.

This wasn’t said or meant to demean or denigrate anyone, rather to point out a respectable and admirable point of view of a young man.
