Under the Category: You Never Know

This funny article in the NY Times tells the saga of how Warren Buffet getting rejected from Harvard, then asking a professor at Columbia for help, getting into Columbia, going on to form an investment firm (which the professor invested in and got rich off of) lead to the daughter of the professor to endow a private high school in Pennsylvania to the tune of ....$128M.

It pays to be a mentor to young people sometimes in the most surprising ways.
