The Story Behind the Nickel & the Nail

The story goes that a young man,
years ago in the deep South,
walking down a long, unpaved,
dusty road to visit his lady friend,
was all too aware that he had
but a nickel in his pocket and
that his self-esteem would be
questioned if he were unable to
 indicate that he was a
man of means. Noticing two
gnarled horseshoe nails
lying by the side of the road,
he picked them up and
put them in his pocket.
As he jingled these ferrous
objects together with his
meager fortune, he walked
 a little big straighter and with
a little more pride and dignity.

Similarly, the Extended
Opportunity Program
endeavors to enhance
self-esteem, foster
pride and dignity,
and motivate those
whom the program serves,
enabling them to more
effectively define and
pursue career goals.
It is important that they
too have “something to jingle”.

Further, the nails are
twisted into a puzzle,
suggesting that the complete
enigma has still yet to be
unraveled for helping those who,
 through societal circumstances,
have been limited in successfully
 meeting their educational challenge.
