I happened to be at NC State during the wonderful era of John Caldwell when he was chancellor. 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:05.373
Chancellor Caldwell, I got to know him very, very well because I was in student politics 00:00:05.373 - 00:00:10.581
and spent a lot of time with him. 00:00:10.581 - 00:00:12.333
I admired the man, he had fantastic values. I thought [he] was one of the smartest men I'd ever met, probably was. 00:00:12.333 - 00:00:20.460
But I also had the pleasure of knowing a former chancellor, Chancellor Carey Bostian. 00:00:20.460 - 00:00:25.079
Wonderful guy. Dr. Bostian kind of also took me under his wing a little bit and helped me, 00:00:25.079 - 00:00:31.898
and there are others. I'm sure I'm missing some, 00:00:31.898 - 00:00:34.923
but those are the people that really stick in my mind as people that really reached out and helped a young farm kid who was pretty green, 00:00:34.923 - 00:00:43.726
pretty green around the ears. He didn't know much. 00:00:43.726 - 00:00:46.017
