My Thoughts

I believe that George Washington Carver was a great scientist who achieved many great things. He was able to discover over 300 uses for peanuts and over 100 uses for soybeans, pecans, and sweet potatoes. I find his work to be fascinating. He was able to overcome many things and became a very successful, smart man. He is a great role model.
