"2013 From Failure to Promise Essay Contest"
In 2010, Dr. C Moorer published his ground breaking work, From Failure to Promise: An Uncommon Path to Professoriate. An inspirational autobiography in which Moorer (once an inner-city youth) shares his 15-year journey, espousing how God transformed his life and took him from college flunk-out to engineer and, ultimately, to university professor.
