Why I Give

Herbert Milan JrHerbert Milan Jr., Class of 1970, Atlantic City, N.J.

“Everything I have, or hoped to achieve, I owe to Delaware State. That little family we had and the instructors we had, like Dr. Donald Blakey, (the late) Dr. Milford Caldwell and (the late) Mr. Harry Washington, left an indelible impression upon me that carried me through my 35 years as a middle school administrator. I tried to impart the values I learned from them.”

“Denis Waitley is credited with stating, ‘It’s not who you are that holds you back; it’s who you think you’re not.’ Fortunately, DSU has been teaching this for a very long time. This University has played an integral part in who I am as a human being. This family, the DSU family, is part of my DNA, part of my legacy. Consequently, why I give back is very simple. It’s my responsibility.”
