In college I was in student government. It seemed important at the time and was the sort of thing that you list on your resume when you first leave college, before you have a real job.
One of my college friends in student government is now in the insurance biz in Missouri, and has been for many years.
On his website he lists his bio and career accomplishments. What's still there for this now 60-yr old? His position in student government. In the 1970's.
After all these years, that is one of the high points of his life. That is so terribly, terribly sad.
Lord, thank you for all the things that really matter, and for clearing my life of so many things that don't.
