Buy you dinner?

One of the first students I ran into this morning was a new friend — Brett Starr from Hickory, N.C.  A little background — several weeks ago, on the last day of exams, I went to Subway for dinner while working late one night.  Brett was in there buying dinner for everyone — a friend had 59 meals left on his meal card, so Brett was using it up for him.  Brett said it was “surreal” to be graduating.  “I’ve had some great professors, who will become lifelong mentors, people I can call and say what do I do about this.  Not only professors, but also my peers… the mentors are beyond anything that I could imagine.” Brett is hoping to go to Wake Forest medical school next year.
