People love stories about real-life underdogs who overcome insurmountable odds to achieve success. This article chronicles one such underdog in the truest sense of the word. As one of the privileged students to have had the opportunity to study under Dr. Lumsden, this paper is written as a tribute to the contributions of D. Barry Lumsden to the contemporary practice of Higher Education. Lumsden has developed numerous teachers in the field of higher education.

Lumsden and I maintain a great friendship and I continue to be mentored by him both professionally and personally.
