Professional Career Paths, by Ronald W. Holmes, Ph.D.
Public school students in many states are given the opportunity to choose a potential job to pursue or path of study in one of the 16 national career clusters delineated by the U.S. Department of Education. Some of these career clusters include (1) agriculture, food and natural resources; (2) audio/visual technology and communications; (3) architecture and construction; (4) business, management and administration and (5) education and training. This book provides an excerpt of interviews of 57 professionals in different occupations (teacher, lawyer, doctor, entrepreneur, etc.) to help students learn of jobs for successful employment.
The book is also designed to help students visualize how their background fits certain characteristics of professionals so they become inspired to pursue a defined career path. Each professional’s occupation in the chapters is linked to one of the 16 national career clusters supported by definitions of the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium. Finally, the book provides a review of best practices various schools have used across the country to prepare students for college and careers.

How to Eradicate Hazing, by Ronald W. Holmes, Ph.D.
Hazing has been defined in a number of ways, but the resulting consequences are the same – ridicule, humiliation, embarrassment and abuse. Despite contrary beliefs, hazing impacts all ages and segments of society. Society must therefore be engaged in educational strategies to understand the causes and effects of hazing and research-based strategies for prevention that over time will eliminate the negative consequences. The book by Dr. Ronald Holmes provides a framework for K-20 educators and others to have an in depth look at hazing and begin to develop anti-hazing strategies to overcome the negative consequences in our communities, schools, institutions and society. It is a must read for those interested in using knowledge and collaborative strategies to understand and prevent hazing. Dr. George E. Cooper, former president of South Carolina State University
The time is now for all of us to become actively involved to tackle the problem and pain of violence on Black college campuses, Black community and other communities. I hope that this book will inspire and challenge us to do our level best to rid, purge and root out hazing from our culture. Make no mistake about hazing, it didn’t begin with Robert Champion, but prayerfully, it must end with the death of our drum major and other beloved children throughout the country. Let’s become a champion in this fight! Reverend Dr. R. B. Holmes Jr., pastor of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church Founder/Chair, National Anti-Hazing/Anti-Violence Task Force.

Surviving & Thriving Candid, Real Life Stories of Prostate Cancer
Sponsoring Editor, Ronald W. Holmes, Ph.D.
I endorse this book as a must read for all men and specifically families that are dealing with prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is a disease that affects one in six men. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in American men. It is estimated that approximately 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2012 and 28,170 men will die of this potentially curable disease. African American men have the highest incidence rate for prostate cancer in the United States and are more than twice as likely as Caucasian American men to die of the disease. It can affect his sense of manhood and self-esteem, and as a result, it affects his interactions with his spouse or girlfriend, and even his fellow friends. It is an impossibility to defeat an enemy which is not fully understood. Therefore, it is a hope that the candid, first-hand accounts of stories from surviors will plant themselves in your memory and connect you in such a way that you, too, will be motivated to join in the fight.
