I was a protege of Mrs. Acebo's. She was my first journalism teacher and encouraged me to remain in the field. Her class was a blast, and I enjoyed how she made learning fun. I lost touch with her after she left Huntsville but went on to become the first black editor of the newspaper, The Hive, before graduating. It was the first of so many firsts in my career, thanks to Mrs. Acebo. Ultimately, writing, editing, and publishing became my livelihood. Her mentoring was the wind beneath my wings, and I try to perpetuate her legacy. I shall always carry a part of her in me. Sweet dreams, Mrs. Acebo!!!
