This is why this department is committed to fueling your passion for excellence in any chosen career. Just before you leave, please, hear this. Nobody can succeed without God. George Washington Carver… George Washington Carver spent his early years shuffling between foster homes until, it is thought, Maria Watkins, a washerwoman, found him asleep in her barn. She didn’t just take him in; she took him to church and introduced him to Jesus. When he eventually left her home, he took with him the Bible she’d given him. Maria left her mark on his life, and George left his mark on the world. This father of modern agriculture was a friend to three president as well as Henry Ford and Gandhi. He is credited with over three hundred different inventions. And the remarkable thing is, despite his disadvantages, he never became bitter or spent so much as a moment getting even. Instead, he went into his lab every morning and prayed, ’Open my eyes that I may see!’ How could God fail to bless someone with such an attitude?
