An inspirational story of how a teacher can have a profound impact on the lives of students

This one comes to us from one of our favorite readers, the redoubtable Chris Wren.  It's a story about how a college professor's brief encounter with a high school student inspired and changed that student's life forever.  Here's Chris' explanation about why he thought I should pass this along to all of you:

I thought this item might interest you for a couple of reasons, both found toward the end of the article: first, the description of how a single teacher can influence the life direction of a student, with even with only a brief contact (here, an encounter in high school with a college professor); second, the description of the contrasting approaches to graduate education in China and the U.S. Not directly law-related, but perhaps a bit inspirational for those occasions LRW folks doubt their impact. Ya never know where and when the effects will show up.

Amen, brother.  Read the article here.

I am the scholarship dude.
