By George, He Did It! A True Scholar's Autobiography by George R Hall is an inspiring story that chronicles the life and career of an extraordinary man. George Ralph Hall was born in 1936 to a poor closely-knit African American family in Wyoming, Ohio. The family lived in Glendale, where racial segregation thrived at this time. In kindergarten, he failed, and his teacher noted that he is 'shy, has no initiative, and no doubt won't become much of anything.' Proving his kindergarten teacher wrong, the little boy grew up to become the first African American school principal at Glendale Elementary School. This book retraces all his challenges while attending Ohio University on a scholarship and how he built his career during the critical years of segregation and racial discrimination in the 1950s and 1960s. This is his story.
George R. Hall's By George, He Did It! A True Scholar's Autobiography is a must-read for students, educators, and anyone who wants to pursue their purpose in life and discover their full potential. Written straightforwardly and casually, the author shares his life experiences, challenges, and accomplishments, and it's both entertaining and motivating. Optimistic and informal, the literary tone is amiable. Early in life, George R. Hall revealed an indomitable spirit to succeed, worth emulating.
