Dr. Dees was one of my favorite inspirational teachers as a student at Detroit High School. He was known as a tough yet caring teacher that most students feared. I got on his good side as an honor student that played sports. I applied and won a Alpha Phi Alpha scholarship thanks this his encouragement. He always told me I had what it took to be great and I went on to graduate with hours from college thanks to his guidance. Great teacher and a better person.
