The Chemistry of Dr. White

While he was in school, Donald White enjoyed playing and reading about many fantastic things, and he tried to find time to think about things like DNA . . . Donald loved science and even got to experiment with DNA in his favorite class in high school. From that point, he only grew more and more interested in chemistry, which he loved studying at Tuskegee University. No matter what Dr. White accomplishes academically or professionally, he still sometimes stops to tell himself, “you’re a chemist too”, which is the same message he has for children!
