About The Author

In 1956, Author Mel Reed left Pine Plains (NY) High School without a diploma.  He joined IBM in 1963. In 1977, he was granted a 6-month social leave of absence from IBM to write a federally funded vocational training program with O.I.C. of America. He enrolled 80 students in the basement of the St. Francis AME Zion church, in Port Chester, NY. In February, 1981, he set out to write about how he started it with an initial grant of only $75,000, and a miracle happened that changed his life and produced this book.
