Delaware State University recently honored Dr. Reba Ellen Ross Hollingsworth, an alumna of both the laboratory high school and the State College for Colored Students. Dr. Reba is one of the most amazing women I know! I appreciate her most for the indelible wisdom that has informed both my personal and professional life. During my first-ever meeting with her I immediately had the odd sensation that she was someone I did not want to disappoint. I knew that she would expect me to use my God-given talents to the fullest and brook no excuses if I did not.
Dr. Reba is a friend to the archives and believes in the importance of understanding the history that shapes the university today and appreciating the hard work of those who came before us. Take a look at the video above and see for yourself.
