ABSTRACT
The article explores the author's journey through higher education. She states that her intention of sharing her story and that of the loan officer is not to condemn the individuals, but rather it is her way of beginning to establish a position. Furthermore, she states that her administrative philosophy as an African American teacher and an administrator is rooted in her belief that people have to be treated with respect and be trusted to maintain high professional standards.
