On the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report’s 35th anniversary, publisher Rolfe McCollister reflects on the successful journey of former Children’s Charter School student David Thomas. Thomas is now at Morgan State University in the Ph.D. program working on his doctorate in public health.

Have a great weekend! – Paul
