GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Anderson may be a symbol of SF State’s success today, but he recalled his first class at SF State where he was overmatched by the 15 books assigned by Political Science Professor Kay Lawson, whom Anderson would later describe as a mentor. “I got the syllabus that day and I thought, ‘There’s no way she expects us to read this all,'” Anderson said laughing. “Yep. She expected us to read it all. And I retook that course.” Anderson went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. According to Anderson, Lawson pulled him aside and praised him for his commitment to success for taking the class again and finishing it the second time.
