    Congratulations Dr. Williams with what sounds like a well deserved honor. I am a parent of a young man interested in attending Tuskegee next year. As a result, I have been following events related to the university. Reading about your outstanding academic credentials and career helps validate my opinion of this historical institution which I would be honored to have my son attend.
