"One of the things about Hampton -- Hampton trained all its graduates with two goals, objectives in mind. Number one, to give back to the university so therefore it could continue. It was a private school, so alumni always gave money back to the school. The second thing was that anybody that graduated from Hampton should be a leader, should go back into their communities and be a leader. So...those two things were instilled in me."
