I owe my life to DR. Pratt. She took this young student and showed him that his world is more than what society thinks of him through the GLEAMS program. Unsure if she thought her works in the GLEAMS program was in vein or a success, but I would like to let her family know that as a member of the Gleams program I had my struggles, had to wok my way out of a society that had been working to pull minorities down and keeping them there. I am glad to let it be known her work has not been in vein. Today, I am 1 of 4 selected to be a Master Sergeant in the united States Army Preventive Medicine Occupation. One away from being the highest enlisted position in the military. I Hold multiple degrees and certifications in medical and criminal justice realms, while continuing the fight in getting rid of the juxtaposition society has on minorities by educating student populations, young men and and woman across the world. Upon my promotion I will be dedicating it to one of the strongest woman I know in the world Dr. Charleyse Pratt. May she continue to live on in all of us.

Charley was an amazing woman, a gifted administrator, and a passionate advocate for higher education. She was like my Pied Piper: if I saw Charley’s name attached to it; I was there. Her presence was poised, powerful, and supportive—all at the same time. I looked up to her. She was my friend, and I will miss her. My sympathies to her family; thank you for sharing her with the CSU community.
