Forty-four years ago this chocolate girl from Kinston made her way to E. Market Street. Dr. Martin was a junior professor with intelligence, compassion and rizz. He remains that same Aggie-leader who admonished us to "go get the PhD" when we called ourselves boycotting because we didn't see enough educators like us. Thank you Dr. Harold and Mrs. Davida for your service, and thank you Sir for your role in shaping my future. #AggieEngineers
