    Congratulations on your achievement. I am a 1972 graduate from the Masters’ program in the Industrial Engineering School. I correspond periodically with Dr. Smith, who is still teaching in the I.E. school. At the time I was there, I estimate there were only about 20 black students on campus. Being on active duty in the Air Force at the time, I did not get to do a lot of socializing with students on campus. I am sure your accomplishments can be a beacon of light to guide their development.
