English Professor Inspires a Student's Film Career

Saint Mary's College English Professor Rosemary Graham was mentioned in an Oakland Tribune article about former student Ryan Coogler's ambitions to write and direct movies in the East Bay.

"She looked at my essays and told me I had a creative eye, that I should go to Hollywood and write screenplays," Coogler was quoted. "I thought, 'Where is she getting this?' Then I thought 'Why not?' I went on the Internet, learned how to write a screenplay and fell in love with it."
