Q: What has changed at the NSU Theatre Company since your arrival? A: Well, just about everything. Norfolk State University Theatre Company is brand new. We are enjoying our inaugural season. Our lastest production, Dreamgirls became the first sold-out performance for theatre on NSU’s campus in two decades. Then there is the construction of the new Brown Hall building and its two brand new state-of-the-art facilities. It is going to be a beautiful facility and will be the new home of the NSU Theatre Company. Q: Tell us about some of the productions you’ve put together with students this semester? A: This season we presented A Musical Tribute to Whitney Houston, A Raisin in the Sun, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf and Dreamgirls. I also had the pleasure of directing this year’s Mr. & Miss NSU Pageant. Q: Tell us about your background? A: I started out performing in theatre in high school with a touring company. When I attended Alabama State University, I continued my studies and began directing as well. I attended graduate school at Brandeis University in the Boston area and began my professional career as an actor and director. After spending some time performing off-Broadway and in film and regional theatre, I took over a theatre company in Birmingham, Alabama, as artistic director. Later, my former chair at Alabama asked me to teach and I said no. She brought it up again and I agreed only if I was able to continue with my company. The university agreed and I took the opportunity to teach at my alma mater. I spent five years there helping with acquiring accreditation, developing curriculum, directing and innovating the production process.
Q: Do you think HBCU Theatre programs are overlooked? If so why? A: I do. I think that young students of color do not realize that if they want to study in a theatre program they need to go to an HBCU. HBCU theatre is the only place where lead roles and stories for people of color are the main content. Anywhere else, they will have to wait for shows that include roles for people of color. Almost all of America’s best black film actors come from the theatre and studied under people of color with plays that told their stories. Q: What productions can fans expect during the summer and going into the fall of 2015? A: This month, we will be presenting Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill. It is a musical about the life of Billie Holiday. It is going to be an amazing show. People should check out our website for more information. (nsutheatre.com) Q: Tell us about some of the talent on the NSU Theatre roster? Will we be seeing them on Broadway or the big screen one day? A: There is a plethora of talent in the company. Four theatre performance students who have stood out this year are Christopher Lindsay, Briyana Guadalupe, Juspin Jones and Indya Jackson. Chris, Briyana and Juspin were honored by being selected as Irene Ryan Acting Competitors by the Kennedy Center’s American College Theatre Festival. Juspin is graduating in theatre performance this semester. I encouraged him to consider graduate study and took him to New York to audition for schools. He currently has accumulated more than $750,000 in scholarships and stipends collectively from top graduate programs. Indya Jackson is on her way to Disney for an internship this summer. Therefore, I am sure they will see the success they seek. Whether it be television, film, theatre or Broadway in particular.
Q: With the emergence of African-American writers, actors and producers who have been featured in television and film in the last few \years, what type of future do you see for NSU students interested in the career field? A: The amount of diversity and inclusion appearing in the entertainment industry has dramatically increased the amount of career opportunities that are available. There has always been high demand for diversity in design, technology, directing and management. Many students find success as directors, producers, lighting designers, scenic designers, costume designers along with the dozens of other career choices that theatre affords students. Q: Will the NSU Theatre feature any original productions next season? If so, can you provide us with any details? A: We are working on an original piece for the 80th anniversary of the University. It deals with the Norfolk 17. That is all I can tell you without giving out too much information. I am also planning to present Langston Hughes’s Black Nativity. It will be a huge production and NSU’s holiday gift to the Hampton Roads community. Q: Is there anything else you would like to share? A: If people have not been to a show on campus, you should. It’s your obligation to do so. It will only take one show to get you hooked. Our students work hard and are extremely talented. * Interview conducted prior to spring commencement
Scenes from Dreamgirls
From the Desk of the Interim Vice President for University Advancement
ecently Interim President and CEO Eddie N. Moore Jr. quoted a poem by Roe Fulkerson that contemplated what it meant to be a builder and a wrecker during a university conference. The poem challenged those in attendance to examine their life and answer which role they play—a builder who works with care, patience and a well-made plan or a wrecker content with the labor of tearing down. BEHOLD Magazine is dedicated to the builders of Norfolk State University. In every issue, those highlighted help build upon the foundation of builders who have come before us. This issue features a special section, in which we say “Thank You” to all who by their actions and financial support serve as the stones and the mortar that have helped NSU to transform students’ lives and our communities. Our Honor Roll of Donors is our way of acknowledging and thanking everyone for his/her part in helping today’s students actualize their dreams and their potential. The list highlights those who generously gave to the “I AM NSU…Because” Annual Campaign that ran from July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2014. It was a resounding success, breaking all records in terms of number of donors, amounts our donors committed to and exceeding our fundraising goal of $3 million to $5.2 million. You—our donors and supporters—through dedication and commitment continue to help us to build so that each of our students can climb their ladder to success. Nearly 40 years ago, Provost Sandra J. DeLoatch had the vision and the foresight to begin teaching computer science classes and then act as a key player in initiating Norfolk State’s Computer Science Department in 1990. The path that she helped pave has placed the University today in an enviable position. What grew out of those initial actions was the establishment of two degree programs in information assurance, which is closely related to what is now called cybersecurity.
That vision and foresight has set NSU apart from its sister institutions as a leader in educating and graduating African-American and minority cybersecurity professionals. And because of our history of success in the field, Norfolk State has been awarded several grants that have placed the University at the forefront of developing measures to combat cyber threats to our nation’s military and national security infrastructure. Over the past several months, NSU received $30 million in awards for cybersecurity and has been tapped by President Barack Obama and the Department of Energy to lead a major education and workforce initiative. Additionally, the University has been a National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education since 2009 and will now establish a Center of Excellence in Cyber Security in partnership with the Air Force Research Lab, along with Old Dominion and Tennessee State universities. Over the past 80 years, Norfolk State has had many “firsts” and earned numerous awards and accolades for its achievements and many accomplishments. As we celebrate our 80th Anniversary this year, we must always remember that with each triumph and achievement, we are building a stronger, more sustainable NSU. To you—our donors, supporters, achievers and visionaries—we say “Thank You.”
Behold the Green and Gold!

By GAIL KENT NSU Students in Cuba
hile many Americans are gearing up to visit, explore and trade with Cuba for the first time, students, alumni and faculty of Norfolk State have been nurturing a relationship with the isolated country for many years. President Barack Obama announced last year that he was re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba. The United States severed its relationship with Cuba in January 1961, with the rise of Fidel Castroâ€™s communist government. Led by Dr. Geoffroy de Laforcade, director of International Studies, Norfolk State has been one of the few institutions that has traveled and sent students to Cuba. â€œInterest in Cuba has gone mainstream. I was pushing people-to-people exchanges and doing serious work in Cuba long before the U.S. governmentâ€™s decision to move forward. I think NSU made a valuable contribution.â€? As a former journalist, de Laforcade began travelling to Cuba in 1984. He has a special interest in the country and has received academic honors as a result of his work there. â€œWe have had not one â€“ but four â€“ study-abroad programs there in recent years, and we are the only
HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) to have done so.â€? Dr. Charles Ford, professor of history, organized the first NSU trip to Cuba in 1999. Then a year after de Laforcade arrived at NSU, he set up the next trip in 2009, and students have been returning ever since. De LaForcade has been able to forge relationships with Cuban scholars and artists, organizing a U.S. tour of three Cuban scholars and artists in 2012. Most recently, in February, the professor worked with renowned muralist Salvador Gonzalez Escalona, who exhibited in dâ€™ART Center in Norfolk. When students travel to Cuba â€“ as they do when they participate in other study-abroad programs in the International Studies Program â€“ they study a variety of disciplines, including history, migration, comparative religion, race relations, governance, social work, environmental sustainability, visual arts, public health, technological innovation, ethics and entrepreneurship. â€œMy interest is in helping young Americans understand that our problems are not that different from theirs,â€? says de Laforcade. â€œYoung Cubans are very hungry for ideas and exchanges. We are
sowing the seeds of real synergy and cooperation just by helping to clarify what each sideâ€™s needs are.â€? Some former students who participated in the exchange from earlier years have learned Spanish and maintained the relationships they began five and six years ago. â€œThis has taught my students that their dreams about generating international relationships are very powerful.â€? De Laforcade says that while Cubaâ€™s infrastructure â€“ especially technology â€“ is lacking, there is much we can learn from each other. Cuba can offer unique and valuable perspectives on social work, service-learning, education and preventive health. â€œMost Cubans are proud that their country is independent and relevant, but they also want to reform their country. At the same time, old-fashioned political posturing still matters.â€? As for the future of the Norfolk State and Cuban liaison? â€œI hope hundreds of (Cuban) students will want to study here in the next two to five years.â€? Thatâ€™s when the mysterious island just 90 miles off the coast of Florida will truly transition from foe to friend.

Patricia L. Stith ’68 and Melvin T. Stith ’68
$400K TO NSU By SHARON R. HOGGARD
BEHOLD MAGAZINE • SUMMER 2015
ometimes college students, new or continuing, can get overwhelmed. The stress of managing classes, time for studying and new responsibilities as a college student can take its toll. And, before they realize it, the student finds themselves falling behind in reading and homework, then failing a class or two and finally withdrawing from the demands of student life or from the institution. Norfolk State University alumni Melvin T. and Patricia L. Stith well understand the rigors of academic life and they know what it takes to succeed. The Stiths also know that NSU offers a valuable resource, both human and sometimes monetary, for students to help them stay on track toward obtaining a degree . . . the Spartan Success Center. Designed to improve student achievement, increase retention and reduce the time to degree completion, the Stiths awarded the center with a $400,000 gift from Melvin T. Stith ’68 in honor of his wife Patricia L. Stith ’68.
Melvin Stith made the presentation at the university’s 80th Anniversary Gala held in March. “It was in honor of my wife’s 45th wedding anniversary,” he said in a recent interview. “NSU is so special to both of us. We feel that we couldn’t have accomplished all that we have without NSU.” The Spartan Success Center . . . soon to be renamed the Dr. Patricia Lynch Stith Success Center, represents the life work of Patricia L. Stith. “She has been dedicated to retaining students so that they can attain their goals. And, the first time I saw the center, I started calculating... putting together a proposal including the amount of a gift,” Stith explained. “I want to set an example to alumni everywhere that we need to step up our giving to the university.” The Stiths have demonstrated their love and commitment to NSU over the years. First, with their annual giving including the Tom Joyner HBCU Scholarship Fund and a $50,000 gift to the Obie Mildred Lynch Endowed Fund to help keep students enrolled. A $100,000 contribution created the Melvin T. and Patricia L. Stith Alumni House back in 2005. “We are so proud of the spirit of NSU, how absolutely gorgeous the campus is today and how the faculty, staff and students continue to build the brand by showing their pride,” Stith continued. “With this donation, we can do more... more of everything,” said Dr. Eleanor L. Hoy, director of the Spartan Success Center and NSU’s official retention czar. The retention czar and her team of advisors recently took 100 freshmen on a trip to Nags Head during the freshmen retreat. “It wasn’t all fun and games,” Hoy quickly added. “We had an English tutoring session, etiquette classes, and so much more.” Newly relocated from Bowser Hall to the Nursing and General Education Building, the Spartan Success Center stands ready to provide the following services: • • •
• • • •
Academic and non-academic counseling Exam of Writing Competency (EWC) assistance Tutoring – Smarthinking Online Tutoring – Residential Life and Housing Tutoring – Structured Student Session for High Risk Course Mentoring Freshmen retreat P.A.S.S. (Preparing for Academic Scholarship and Success) Study Session Community outreach and more
A portion of the $400,000 gift will help the success center create, sponsor and host the national Dr. Patricia L. Stith Advising and Retention Conference that will be held biannually on the NSU campus beginning in spring 2017. The conference will showcase innovative and successful strategies to advising and retaining first- and second-year students with a special emphasis on enhancing retention in underrepresented populations. Patricia L. Stith will serve as chairman of the inaugural conference planning committee to develop the conference theme, establish program requirements and oversee the conference’s implementation. Additionally, two scholarships will be funded to be awarded each spring to one female and one male student who exemplifies the “Spartan” ideas of pride, integrity, curiosity, excellence, engagement and civility in their pursuit of academic success. Recipients of the scholarships will be selected from one or more programs offered by the Spartan Success Center. “We wanted to have a fund that would help us not lose kids who owed a mere pittance on their tuition bill,” Stith said. Every student that makes it through impacts the university’s graduation rates.” The Stiths’ donation will also establish the Spartan Success for Excellence Endowed Fund which will provide operational support for the center’s areas of greatest need to enhance or expand one or more of its advising and retention programs. Finally, the Spartan Success Center will be renamed the Dr. Patricia Lynch Stith Success Center, with an official sign unveiling taking place in the fall of 2015.

Mission College Bell Makes A Return By DE’QUAN MOSS '15
he Norfolk Mission College Bell is returning to the Norfolk State campus as a part of the University's new communications tower. Weighing 2,000 pounds, the bell—dating back to 1884—will be one of the main features to hang from the tower’s ceiling. Although it will not toll, the bell will serve as a symbol of achievement, representing exceptional pride and history to its Spartan family. The bell was donated by the Norfolk Mission College Alumni Association to Norfolk State. Before that, it hung in the old mission school tower from 1884-1916 at the Princess Anne Road and Chicazola Street locations. When the college closed, the bell tolled for school children who attended Booker T. Washington High School and the old Dunbar School. In 1974, the bell was unveiled and dedicated to Norfolk State in the east corner of the original Lyman Beecher Brooks Library. At the time, Norfolk State envisioned that the bell would be suspended in a special bell tower on campus, rising out of a reflection pool. Now, 131 years after it was forged, the bell will a be feature on a college campus once again. The inscription engraved on the bell reads: “Presented to The Norfolk Mission College By the Colored Citizens of Norfolk, Va., May 8, 1884.”
Faculty Member Wins Prestigious Award NSU’s Dr. Mikhail A. Noginov was recently named one of Virginia’s Outstanding Scientists for 2015 by Governor Terry McAuliffe and Science Museum of Virginia Chief Wonder Officer Richard C. Conti. Dr. Noginov, a professor of physics and a researcher in NSU’s Center for Materials Research, is credited for his cutting-edge research in the areas of metamaterials, nanoplasmonics, random lasers, solid-state laser materials and nonlinear optics. Gov. McAuliffe said that it was an honor to recognize Virginia’s leading scientific minds. “The 2015 Virginia Outstanding Scientist recipients are at the forefront of their fields and are recognized for their contributions to future technologies.”

ennifer Bailey, a junior at Norfolk State University, is on the fast track to blazing her own path inside and outside of NSU. Bailey has been recently named a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowship award winner. Through fellowships like this one, the EPA assists in increasing the nation’s environmental workforce and its ability to advance the nation’s research and development enterprise. Bailey is the latest Norfolk State student to receive this prestigious fellowship. A family history of attending NSU led her to the University. “My sister was in the DNIMAS program and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in biology. She is my biggest influence, and I’ve always looked up to her,” says Bailey. The Dozoretz National Institute for Mathematics and Applied Sciences (DNIMAS), begun in 1985, is a rigorous and highly successful honors program for students majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It aims to increase the number of graduates capable of earning advanced degrees in basic and applied sciences. “I love that NSU wants to change the severe shortage of minority scientists in the world,” Bailey said.

She likes that faculty and staff know the names of their students. “They are willing to do just about anything to make sure you have everything you need to succeed,” Bailey said. NSU Assistant Biology Professor Maureen Scott quickly provided wise counsel and guidance to Bailey while at NSU. “She has been instrumental in my educational and professional pursuits as a mentor. She introduced me to the world of research. She helped me find my passion and future career plans,” Bailey said. “I am very proud of Jennifer. She serves as a great example of a student pursuing academic excellence and obtaining prestigious opportunities to reinforce her career goals,” Scott said of her third student to receive the prestigious EPA Fellowship. Bailey is active on and off campus, encouraging youth to pursue careers in STEM at Girls Inc., serving as a student ambassador, vice president of the biology society, peer mentor and a tutor for Student Support Services. She knows that students can lose momentum and become too comfortable during the last two years of college and she works to stay enthusiastic. “Knowing what the future holds for me, keeps me motivated,” says Bailey, who plans to earn her Ph.D. in toxicology and environmental pathology from Brown University. “I know what my endgame is. I know what I need to do in order to get there.”

#Black Lives Matter —The New Civil Rights Movement? By SHARON R. HOGGARD and REGINA LIGHTFOOT obody knows the exact number of unarmed people of color who have died during an encounter with the police. Not even the U. S. Department of Justice can provide the exact figure because local police departments self-report those incidents. According to the most recent FBI report of justifiable homicide, nearly two times a week somewhere in the U.S., a white police officer killed a black person between 2005 and 2012.
One certainty however, is that the recent spate of incidents has led people to take to the streets and demand a change in the status quo. It began with the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, and the subsequent trial and release of then neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in 2013. The next flash point came in August 2014, when it was learned that unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was killed in an encounter with a white police officer. Then what seemed to be the tipping point was the decisions by both a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, and one in Staten Island, New York, to decline indicting the police officers involved in the deaths of Brown and Eric Garner in New York.
BEHOLD MAGAZINE • SUMMER 2015
The Ferguson incident brought nightly protests and what had been welling up over the years came spilling out because of the sense that the lives of Black people—especially Black men—didn’t matter, weren’t worth enough to care about. During the 2014 holiday season the air was filled with chants of “Black Lives Matter, “handsupdontshoot,” “Icantbreathe”
UniversityNews and “thisstopstoday,” rather than “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells,” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Are we on the brink of a new Civil Rights Movement? “For the most part,” says Dr. Elsie Barnes, NSU professor of political science, “the protests are the continuation of the civil rights movement of the 1960s.” Dr. Angela Shuttlesworth, assistant professor of social work, says, “There is a definite desire to transition from reactionary moments to a progressive and proactive moment.” Dr. Andrew Arroyo, assistant professor of interdisciplinary studies, adds, “We are seeing a new Civil Rights Movement. I do not, however, view this new movement strictly as a racial one. Many streams are converging to create a movement that is deeper and wider than anything we have seen before.” Shuttlesworth agrees, “With the increase of social enterprises, we will begin to see a Civil Rights Movement that includes a public-private partnership focused on advocacy of many issues. It will be a tad bit harder to identify the successes gained of so many moving parts due to the multiple causes, multiple organizations with little to no sharing of data and a competition for limited resources.”
SOCIAL MEDIA: FRONT AND CENTER What is different from the 1950s and ’60s is the use of social media. Ferguson National Response Network organized a 30-city protest in which high school and university students walked out of their classrooms on December 1 at 12:01 p.m. Central Time—the moment Brown was killed. #ShutItDown saw the blocking of major highways and intersections, while #BlackOutBlackFriday hit retailers with a boycott on one of the largest shopping days of the year.
Had it not been for the bravery of a citizen, Walter Scott’s death at the hands of a police officer could have been mired in deception for years. Feidin Santana videotaped part of the events when the 50-year-old Scott was chased by a North Charleston, South Carolina, police officer, who fatally shot him minutes later. In the video of the event, police officer Michael Slager is shown walking over to Scott’s body in what seems to be an attempt to tamper with evidence. The mainstream news media showed the video and it went viral on social media. That video changed the tone and the tenor of the events from one in which the officer said he killed in self-defense to one in which he was fired and charged with murder.
“ We are seeing a new
Civil Rights Movement. I do not, however, view this new movement strictly as a racial one.
— Dr. Andrew Arroyo
Social media have played a pivotal role in the Black Lives Matter campaign. Videos of police officers using excessive force have cropped up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and citizen blogs. “Social media facilitated a great deal of the protests,” said Dr. Arroyo. “One aspect of social media, ‘hashtag activism,’ emerged not only as a particularly effective organizing tool, but also as a vehicle for activism itself.” Dr. Arroyo believes that hashtag activism is a deceptively powerful tool. He says that it enables victims and allies to express sentiments and
generates attention and dialogue with the uninformed. “The proliferation of flash mobs, the Occupy Wall Street movement, activism elsewhere in the world, the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin involved the widespread use of social media in all of these examples to disseminate information and communicate strategies to friends and strangers both near and far.”
WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS? “People need to mobilize the power of the ballot box (voting),” said Dr. Barnes. That’s exactly what happened in Ferguson. In April, residents tripled the African American representation on the city council by adding two new blacks to the six-member body that had previously had five white members and one black. Voter turnout increased from 12.3 percent of registered voters a year ago to 29.4 percent. The mayor, who is white, will cast the tiebreaking vote. “In addition, ongoing collaboration with community organizations and political officials should be strengthened to ensure open dialogue about such matters. Collaboration is needed to build trust on both sides,” said Dr. Barnes, longtime civil rights activist, political commentator and college professor. She has observed many social upheavals and renewals, and believes that bridges must be built so that all sides can be heard. “Building trust is not an easy task,” she said. Dr. Shuttlesworth says that tactics and resources should be shared across generations to ensure optimal success. Dr. Arroyo agrees, “I see the potential for young leaders to emerge from our colleges and universities, and especially our HBCUs…Needed are elders within the HBCU community who will train and mentor eager young persons in how to effect change through a cohesive, sustained response to injustice.”

CRACKING the CODE NSU A LEADER IN CYBERSECURITY EDUCATION
By GAIL KENT and REGINA LIGHTFOOT
wenty-one years ago, Aurelia Taylor (B.S.’94) received her degree in computer science from Norfolk State University. Taylor and eight of her classmates traded the campus environment for one inside the hush-hush confines of government intelligence. They became specialists in information assurance, now called cybersecurity. As for Taylor, she went to work for the Department of Defense at Fort Meade, Maryland. Keeping cyberspace safe from would-be criminals—whether domestic or foreign—has become one of the highest government and business priorities, as illustrated by the Sony Entertainment security breach in 2014 and the White House hack earlier this year. NSU is helping to meet the nation’s high demand for cybersecurity experts by launching a master’s degree in cybersecurity in the fall of 2015. In fact, NSU has cracked the code when it comes to educating and graduating African-American cybersecurity professionals dating back more than 20 years. The university’s computer science program can be traced to one person, who is still on campus: Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Sandra J. DeLoatch, Ph.D. Dr. DeLoatch was a young math instructor at NSU in the ’70s, taking stints away to complete her own graduate work that included computer courses. When she returned permanently to campus in 1977, she began teaching programming classes in addition to math. Computer science courses were in demand, and NSU began offering more of them, eventually developing a computer science concentration as one of the mathematics degree options. The Computer Science Department was established

NSU has been designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education through academic year 2020 by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The University ﬁrst received the designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education in 2009.

BEHOLD in 1990 and was accredited the following year. NSU launched the master’s program in computer science in 2003. “We were one of the first HBCUs to be designated by the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security as a center of excellence, Dr. DeLoatch says. “The recognition and placement of our students in good companies have helped our program a great deal.” NSU’s alumni have been in high demand in defense and intelligence settings such as the National Security Agency (NSA), Department of Homeland Security, Northrop Grumman and the Space & Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). Other graduates were recruited by tech firms such as Lucent Technologies and Verizon. Many alumni have gone to graduate school at the University of Maryland, Virginia Tech, George Washington University and others. In 2010, NSU was recognized as a “Top School for Preparing Cyber Security Professionals” by U.S. Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine. Because of the program’s history and success, it just received another huge shot in the arm. In January, the U. S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration awarded a $25million grant to NSU as the lead institution in an effort to educate, train and develop cybersecurity professionals. The grant aims to foster partnerships among HBCUs, federal laboratories and students interested in science, technology, engineering and math as early as kindergarten. NSU is leading a 13-member consortium with Dr. DeLoatch as the principal investigator. Vice President Joe Biden, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and other dignitaries visited campus to announce the grant and to participate in a roundtable discussion on cybersecurity. In addition, NSU was just recently awarded $4.98 million by the Department of Defense to establish a Center of Excellence in Cyber Security at Norfolk State University in partnership with the Air Force Research Lab. This five-year effort will be led by Dr. George Hsieh, professor of computer science, and includes two partners: Old Dominion University/Virginia Modeling, Simulation and Analysis Center and Tennessee State University. The main research objective of the Center is to develop a cloud-based, big-data-analytics-capable cyber analysis, simulation and experimentation environment to enhance situational awareness and decision support capabilities for cyber defense and cyber training. The Center will also perform related education, outreach, and workforce development activities. Dr. DeLoatch credits two of her former students, Gregory Patrick (B.S. ’95) and Aurelia Taylor (now Williams) with helping to launch the cybersecurity initiative. Dr. DeLoatch served as the

principal investigator for software development contracts awarded to NSU by the Department of Defense (NSA) from 1987-94. Patrick and Taylor Williams worked with her on the project while they were students, which served as the impetus for their employment at NSA after receiving their computer science degrees. Both Patrick and Taylor Williams have earned
doctorates in computer science and returned to NSU as computer science faculty. “Our current undergraduate and graduate students are often selecting positions with employers before graduation,” says Dr. Taylor Williams, who now chairs the Computer Science Department. “We have relationships with many laboratories and industry partners that seek our students for summer internships. Our best students (3.0 GPA or better) often are able to choose between the opportunities made available to them.” Dr. Taylor Williams started programming at the age of 10 while participating in a gifted program. “I received my first computer in the eighth grade,” she says. “My aunt, a programmer for IBM, was my role model. “At NSU, Dr. DeLoatch became my mentor, and today I try to do the same, especially for female students who haven’t had the same encouragement that I had when I was young.” NSU has graduated hundreds of AfricanAmericans, women and other minorities in the computer science field, Dr. Taylor Williams says. The Computer Science Department has graduated almost 500 students (499) since 1993. Of that number, 96 percent were minorities and 49 percent were females. Now with the cybersecurity grant, NSU is poised to extend and replicate its successful education and graduation of cybersecurity professionals. “I am immensely proud of this initiative,” Dr. DeLoatch says of the Computer Science Department. “We have grown exponentially and have come full circle.”
SONS FULFILL PARENTS’ DREAM

t began with their parents John Jacob Spruill and Retha Woodard Spruill. They made it one of their life's missions to see to it that their six children earned college degrees. From their parents prayers and dreams came an orthodontist, financial advisor, training director/entrepreneur, transportation director, anesthesiologist and obstetrician and gynecologist. The road to success for these brothers —Thomas Woodard, John Spruill, Joseph Spruill, Matthew Spruill and Linwood and Michael Spruiell (who use the historical spelling of their last name) started at Norfolk State. The lessons they learned on campus have served them throughout their lives as each one helped the other. Their perseverance has paid off and they have created an unbreakable bond and a legacy that has endured. It wasn't easy."We came from nothing; however, we had the love and encouragement from our parents." said Thomas. "We lived in Norfolk public housing." Thomas, the eldest, showed the others what was possible. He attended the Norfolk Division of Virginia State College (Norfolk State) from 1962-67 and he went on to become an orthodontist. "At Norfolk State, I majored in math and physics," he said, “and completed the first four-year ROTC program receiving a commission in the U. S. Army Reserve as an Infantry second lieutenant.” After Norfolk State, he entered the U.S. Army, and served with the elite Special Forces. After separation from active duty, he continued to serve in the U.S. Army Special Forces Reserve while attending Old Dominion University and obtaining a master's degree in physics. While working in the space program, he discovered an Army program that would pay for dental school. That pursuit led him to Howard University School of Dentistry and then to orthodontics school at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Afterward, Thomas returned to the Army Dental Corps to repay his schooling. He was chief of orthodontics at his last duty station. A Board Certified Orthodontist, he is married to Cheryl P. Harris and they have three children. He practices locally at Woodard Orthodontics with his daughter Dr. Monica Woodard. John followed Thomas, enrolling at Norfolk State in 1966. John’s first
major was cabinetmaking, but he changed to history after his first semester and earned a Bachelor of Arts in history. While at Norfolk State, John encountered some of the most tumultuous and historic years at the college and in the city of Norfolk. “I was here at Norfolk State at the time that Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, and there was an uproar at Norfolk State,” said John. “The student government took over Tidewater Hall (Brown Hall) and the student government president ended up getting expelled.” Upon graduating in 1970, John moved to Washington, D.C. He worked for General Motors and General Motors Acceptance Corp. for 26 years and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Federal Credit Union in the nation’s capital for seven years. He now resides in Suffolk, Virginia, with his wife Patricia Lynn Richards-Spruill, a registered pharmacist, who is the director of experiential education at the Hampton University School of Pharmacy. Now retired, he serves as a deacon and chairperson of the Diaconate Ministry at First Baptist Church Mahan Street in Suffolk. Joseph, who is deceased, followed John, graduating in 1972 with a degree in Industrial Arts Education. After college, he taught briefly in the Suffolk, Virginia, public schools system before relocating to Maryland. He was a certified welder, master carpenter, training director for the Virginia mass transit bus system and a manager for The Washington Post’s transportation department. Joseph also owned a very successful home improvement and remodeling business. He also generously gave back to the community providing free lawn care and gutter cleaning services to elderly and widowed neighbors. Joseph had a passion for “classic Mustangs” and restored them to showroom condition. He was married to Agnes Idella Bittle, an accountant, for 19 years before he passed away. He had three children. Their brother, Matthew, was next in line and graduated in 1982 with a degree in mass communication. The following year, he moved to the Washington, D.C. area, where he began a career in public transportation that lasted 30 years. "The education and mentoring I received at Norfolk State University certainly prepared me for the professional success that I
SUMMER 2015 • BEHOLD MAGAZINE
AlumniNews achieved during my 30 year career in public transportation." In August 2014, Matthew retired as the director of Human Services Transportation for the Fairfax County, Virginia, government. He affectionately remembers NSU. “I have very fond memories of my time at Norfolk State, and I hold dear the true and lasting friendships that I made when I was there.” Linwood entered Norfolk State in 1973 and graduated in 1977 with a bachelor of science in chemistry. “I wrestled with what I wanted to major in,” he said. “I talked to Thomas about it and stayed with chemistry.” Linwood went on to Meharry Medical College, graduating in 1981 with a medical degree. Following medical school, Linwood went to Detroit for an internship at Wayne State University affiliated hospitals. He moved to Jackson, Mississippi, in 1982 to work as a physician in an underserved community. It was during his first visit to the community health center that he met his wife, Dr. Gloria Johnson Spruiell, a dentist. The two have been married for nearly 30 years and are the parents of two adult children. In 1987, Linwood completed his residency in anesthesiology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where he was the first African-American resident accepted into the Department of Anesthesiology. Michael, the last of the brothers, entered NSU in 1974 on an academic scholarship. A biology major, he was on a fast track, completing premedical requirements in three years at NSU and graduating from Meharry Medical College in 1981. He met his wife Dr. Vera Goode at Meharry and this year they will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. They have two adult children.
The brothers from left to right are: Linwood Spruiell, John Spruill, Thomas Woodard, Michael Spruiell and Matthew Spruill (inset).
Michael completed his internship and obstetrician/gynecology residency at the Eastern Virginia Medical School. Michael received a National Health Service scholarship while at Meharry, a requirement of the scholarship was that he "pay it back" by serving in a medically underserved area. He went to Vicksburg, Mississippi. "It was the best experience I’ve had," Michael said. He has practiced obstetrics and gynecology in Virginia Beach for the past 27 years. He credits Norfolk State with providing him with a very good foundation. "I had a great experience at NSU," he said. “I don't think the students today are aware of the quality education you can get at NSU.” Their father passed away in 1985 and their mother in 2011, but they were able to see their dream fulfilled. Each of their sons graduated from college and have begun a legacy in which their children are doing the same. As for the brothers, they have a bond and a commitment that has endured a lifetime.
COUPLE SHARES LOVE FOR NSU, EACH OTHER By STAN DONALDSON
he love that Ashley Canty and Boyzie Hayes III share for each other is clear when you see the two of them interact–and so is their love for Norfolk State University. While college is the place where some students meet some of their closest friends, establish career connections and learn about life, it is also the place where some students like Canty and Hayes meet their life partners. The couple, both 26, took an interest in each other three years ago in a graduate mass communications course they both took at J. Hugo Madison Hall. They began to date after Hayes took Canty to a grocery store before a tropical storm hit Hampton Roads. They haven’t stopped talking since. The engaged couple, who plan to marry in July, were recently featured on NBC’s “The Today Show.” They participated in a segment on the show after Canty wrote a heartwarming letter about Hayes’ unwavering support for her as she has battled through several health issues. Canty suffers from lupus. In the last year, she has also suffered from a stroke and was diagnosed with cancer. 14

Through it all, Hayes has remained by her side. He takes Canty to doctor’s appointments, helps her keep track of her medications and has supported her emotionally. But Hayes said he’s just doing what he is supposed to do. “He has been my rock,” Canty said. “He is a blessing from God, and I’m so glad I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him.” During the segment, which aired in February, Broadway actress Eleasha Gamble performed the song, “This Man Who Loves Me.” Producers from the show also provided the couple with a honeymoon cruise they plan to take after their summer nuptials. They will travel to Mexico, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Despite some of the setbacks the couple has experienced, they look forward to their future together and say Norfolk State has prepared them. Canty earned a graduate degree in public relations. She now works as an autism teacher at a local high school. Hayes earned a graduate degree in media management. He works as an athletic video coordinator at Old Dominion University. They both credit NSU for giving them the education to pursue their careers. They also think

fondly of the campus because it is the place where they met and fell in love. “I think Norfolk State has done a lot for me as a person,” Canty said. “Even after I graduated, my professors have continued to be supportive and they really are the ones who make this University. “NSU does something to you while you’re here. This is really a special place.” Hayes agrees. “For me, I feel like I wouldn’t be doing what I am doing now without attending Norfolk State,” Hayes said. “The University played a big role in developing my professional career and it’s also where I found Ashley, who I cherish.”
Norfolk State University inducted 16 inaugural members into the Lyman Beecher Brooks Society at its 80th Anniversary Gala held Saturday, March 28. The honorees included prominent education and business leaders whom the University honored for their life time giving of $100,000 or greater to Norfolk State. Actress Tasha Smith served as the mistress of ceremonies at a transformed Joseph G. Echols Hall. The honorees and special guests attended a VIP Reception in the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library Rotunda prior to the start of the gala.

New Professor Brings Expertise About Filipino Community to Campus By GAIL KENT
r. Aprilfaye Manalang says she didn’t always know that she was going to teach, but her mother saw a light in her that caused her mother to believe that teaching would be her path. “Somehow she always knew that I should teach,” says Dr. Manalang, a first-year member of NSU’s Department of Interdisciplinary Studies. She joined NSU last fall after completing her Ph.D. at Bowling Green State University. Her areas of expertise are American studies with a focus on race relations and religion. “I have always been fascinated with learning about people and their lives,” she says, explaining her chosen field of interest. “In interdisciplinary studies, we look at many aspects that affect peoples’ lives, including politics, religion, economics and history.” The bubbly, enthusiastic young woman grew up in a military family in southern Italy and Hampton Roads but has Filipino roots. Hampton Roads has the largest Filipino community on the East Coast, and Virginia is the ninth largest Filipino populated state with 47,609. Her multi-cultural background has had a strong impact on her research and interest in teaching. For her dissertation, she studied the role of Filipino immigrants’ religion and ethnicity in shaping public life. “I wanted to know, how does God tell me to be an American citizen? Religion
plays a strong organizing role. Immigrants bring their cultural traditions with them into this country. It’s a way of preserving their culture and remembering their community.”
“My Students Are What Makes Me Happy in Life.” – Dr. Aprilfaye Manalang Dr. Manalang has continued her research since she arrived at NSU. She won a $2,000-grant from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities for her local community history project, “The Role of the Black Church and Norfolk State University in the Civil Rights Movement in Norfolk, Virginia,” which included a panel discussion of civil rights activists that was broadcast on WHRO. NSU nominated her white paper on the local Filipino community for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Bridging Cultures grant. This spring she spoke at Old Dominion University and Virginia Wesleyan College about her ongoing research on the Hampton Roads Filipino-American community.
As important as her research is to her, Dr.Manalang says her heart is with her students. “I love my students,” she says. “My students are what makes me happy in life. They have so much passion. They are young and ambitious. It’s an honor and a privilege to be here with them in the classroom. I’m deeply invested in my students.” Her students feel the same way about her. Students in her three first-semester classes organized, raised funds and presented her with an “outstanding professor award”– a plaque to recognize her for outstanding teaching and mentoring. In addition, she received almost a 4.0 in student evaluations. “She is very giving of her knowledge, and her students appreciate her energetic, charismatic personality,” says Dr. Manalang’s supervisor, Dr. Khadijah Miller, chair of the Department of History and Interdisciplinary Studies. Dr. Miller says she has not known of another time when students have recognized their professor in such a manner. “She was willing to roll up her sleeves and jump right in, and that was one of the things that drew us to her.” Dr. Manalang says she is excited about continuing her research, writing a book and working with NSU students. “I’m a pretty simple person. I want to be a good human being. I want to help craft a better society. It’s not about me; it’s about shedding light on what it means to be an American.”
