recovered a fumble at the Grambling 8 in the fourth quarter, but the Aggies came up empty when Cartwright tried to punch it in from a yard out on fourth down and was stopped by defensive end Brandon Varner.

Grambling went six plays on its

final drive of the game but Kincade’s pass over the middle was incomplete as time expired.

THE TAKEAWAY N.C. A&T: The Aggies became

the first MEAC team to go undefeated for an entire season as they continued their run of success under coach Rod


Broadway. N.C. A&T is 40-8 with two HBCU national titles in four seasons under Broadway.

Grambling State: The Tigers

are back despite failing in their bid for consecutive HBCU national title. Grambling is 38-11 in four seasons under head coach Broderick Fobbs, a former Tigers captain who was hired after the team went 2-21 over two years amid player turmoil.

COACHING CONNECTIONS Both head coaches have a deep

connection with the other team. A&T’s Broadway spent four years at Grambling, leading the Tigers to the 2008 HBCU national

championship. Grambling

He would touch people through his efforts; he would hand out the fruits of his labor personally. The same way he would share the actual fruits from his garden, he would personally deliver scholarships he helped fund with the students who benefitted from them.”

Graham also remembers him as a terrific mentor.

“He was always in teachable moment mode,” Graham said. “He’d say, ‘were I you, I’d do this, this and this.’”

She hopes to carry his strong sense of purpose forward as she works

to carry his vision on without him. “I want to continue to honor his

legacy that he has established in me as a professional,” Graham said. “We have a strong sense of loss but a strong sense of his mission and vision.”

“It is the great honor of IPPH to publish the Chinese version Principles of Leadership,’ said Mr. Zhu Mingang, president of IPPH. “The successful experiences of President Harvey are fully revealed in this book, which is not only related to management science, but also more to the humanities. Since the knowledge and wisdom of leadership is not confined to any nation’s border or to any industry, we believe the life and experiences of Dr. Harvey will greatly inspire management leaders, as well as would-be leaders from all walks of life.”

Since taking the presidential helm at Hampton in 1978, Dr. Harvey has helped shape the university as a leader in educational standards, innovation and financial stability.

“If my life’s work and my book

can be an inspiration to young minds in China, as well as here in the U.S., I will indeed feel truly blessed that I’ve been able to help to make a positive difference in the world,” Dr. Harvey said.
