He is a Samford graduate. During our expanded conversation, he related the path of his career, with seeds that were planted during his Samford days. He spoke with gratitude for the education he received, and he paused to express his greatest appreciation for one of our retired faculty members in the Department of English, Dr. Charles T. Workman, for his grace and competence. Many years after these classes with Dr. Workman, it is clear that his influence endures in the life of this successful and fulfilled graduate. 

The world is better because of the members of the Samford faculty, past and present.
