Timothy Brown put his college career on hold in 1972 after being called to serve in the Vietnam War. When he returned, he worked as a cook, a firefighter, and a Greyhound bus driver for decades. But it wasn’t until he was hired to drive for blues legend BB King and community leaders who worked with Dr. Martin Luther King that he was inspired to become a playwright.
“I was in class with my grandbabies,” said Timothy Brown. “The most rewarding part was being able to go back and get my degree and be paid to do that.”— WACH FOX (@wachfox) June 9, 2022

In 2018, Brown enrolled in the Department of Veteran Affairs’ Vocational Rehab program which gave him the chance to attend SC State while he worked.
After over three years of hard work he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Drama from South Carolina State University saying, “As long as you have your health and strength, you’re never too old.” (Sources: BlackNews.com & WACH.com)
