520    "As a young boy, Ernie (Earnest McEwen Jr.) dreamed of a 
       better life for his family in the segregated South of the 
       1930s. More than anything, he wanted to go to college. 
       While working as a janitor at Ol' Miss (the University of 
       Mississippi), Ernie spoke to a professor about his burning
       desire to go to college, setting in motion a series of 
       events that would change his and his family's life for all
       time. One of those significant events was meeting Nobel 
       Laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winning author William 
       Faulkner. Faulkner helped Ernie attend college, paying for
       his tuition and expenses with no strings attached. His 
       generous financial gift allowed Ernie to go to college, 
       move out of the South, and eventually emerge from poverty.
       Ernie made a better life for his family, who continue to 
       live a legacy of life-long learning and service, passing 
       on their blessings to the next generation and the next, 
       creating a ripple effect that will bless generations to 
       come."--|cAmazon.
