|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
