The beginnings of success.

Thank you for profiling the late Reginald Lewis in the Ultimate Wealth Builders feature by Derek Dingle (June 2005). Mr. Lewis raised the bar for African American entrepreneurship. Before TLC Beatrice Foods Co., Wall Street, and Harvard Law School, Lewis graduated from Virginia State University, class of 1965. Virginia State University and other HBCUs prepare their students to succeed against all odds! Mr. Lewis' career illustrates this. Let us not hornet to recognize our HBCUs.
