Mr "B" was my favorite instructor at Wallace State in the Elelectonic's Department when there were few women entering the field in the 1980's! He never failed to give me encouragement and kept the guys who tried to put me down from getting to me (physiologically)! He was a true friend and gentleman! As a result of his support and my hard work by keeping a 4.0 GPA, I was hired by a prominent company BEFORE graduduation with a degree in Electonics & Computer Science! And, I had a successful 30+ year career in the IT/computer field retiring at the age of 55 after setting up a rental business to allow me to stay at home with my quadrapeligic son! God Bless You Mr. B! And, recieve you into his kingdom! I have thought of you often... It is true that great educators DO make a difference! Thank You, Carol Harris
