The person I would like to nominate is Dr. Lenneal H. at the University of Baltimore. Dr. H. is a remarkable person who believes in his students and their successes.
I know that many might say that this is required of all professors but Dr. H. is one in a million. He encourages us to live each day as it was the beginning of our lives. When I met, Dr. H., I was at a conference for students of color. I initially thought that I didn't belong to a school that had a variance of cultures. I was too busy limiting myself and living in my comfort zone of only dealing with my own culture. But it was Dr. H. who told me that this school was the place for me to be and that when you are around other cultures you see the world in colors. That colors was a beautiful place and that you go beyond your reach and go for the stars when you have an open mind. He also taught me to believe in myself and that no matter I had the tools to be a better person. He doesn't just believe in me but he believes in everyone who he meets no matter who they are. He is an inspirational person and it is an honor to write your site on his behalf.

Having many young people work for me this story really hits home.It is amazing how many young people have little or no work ethics. Wish all young men could work the summer like this before they come to work for me.

My name is Edwin and I hope that I get sent to do things like this over summer because after that everything is like gravy. Thanks for the story!

Awesome story. Many fathers no longer give their kids the tutelage to instill self confidence, hard work and discipline. Who else will?

Very nice story, now I have a reason to go ahead without looking to the past. After hard working, "everything is gravy." I agree with the Dutch man...

Perhaps it is the values that we work for rather than the work or money or other things that truly teach us work ethic.

This story is so real in today's world. There are no short ways to personal success.It takes work, hard work, but the fruits taste sweet at the end. There are no instant prizes in life, except for the ones that does not mean much or last long enough .....

The story is too good. Especially these days when youngsters are losing their trust in hard-work. I believe hard-work never goes in vain.
Preethi from Thiruvalla, India SEPTEMBER 7, 2007
Excellent and very useful in the contemporary times where each one of us try the shortcuts and land in a soup.

If only this valuable lesson were still taught to our youth. They are certainly gifted and able to affect the world as they mature, but with this work ethic, they would be unstoppable!

I think it's a very touching story. I think most young men should have to teach these type of lessons to their sons and this world would be a much safer place to live in.

We should insist that these principles be taught to our youth so that they are able to appreciate all the other things we give them.
