UT Professor and Author Taps Into Best Possible Self

Mar 20, 2016

 In his book From Thug to Scholar: An Odyssey to Unmask My Full Potential, University of Tennessee Professor, Dr. James A. Williams talks about his life growing up in the projects and how he "unmasked" to become the person he is today. Dr. Williams, a graduate of the Air Force with a Ph.D from Iowa State University, is in his second year as a professor at the UT. He comes to Knoxville after a two year stint at James Madison University. I had the distinct opportunity to sit down with Dr. Williams and talk to him a little bit about his story.
