1

Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*

I was born in Nashville, Tn. and because my father was a physician and in the Army during WWII, had lived in Tennessee, Arizona, Puerto Rico and Alabama by the time I was 14.

2

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

I was planning to get married and my parents were ABSOLUTELY opposed, so my parents took me to Fisk (where many of their friends were employed) and enrolled me. However, I have to say several of my favorite relatives , family friends and teachers were graduates of Fisk.

5

Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*

Aaron Douglas, Robert Hayden, Cerelle Warfield, John Cottin, William Dawson and so many more who taught me were ALWAYS expecting the very best from each of their students.

They knew your name as you crossed the yard, asked about family members they knew and/or had taught. So it was an extension of the family circle where excuses were NEVER accepted and your very best was ALWAYS expected.
