Behind every successful project, there are some amazing people. People like Rodney Wiseman, a 40-year veteran of Smoot Construction. Recently, Rodney served as field superintendent for construction of the new Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community at Bowie State University. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new building, little did anyone know that Rodney’s family has a long and storied history at Bowie State. Rodney is the nephew of former Bowie State President Dr. J. Alexander Wiseman. His Aunt Mary was a professor at BSU and many of his siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews are BSU alumni. Dr. Wiseman had a building on campus named after him and now our Rodney Wiseman’s legacy is cemented in the 6-story, mixed-use facility that combines campus housing, classrooms and entrepreneurship center at the gateway to BSU’s campus.
While this building is a crowning achievement in Rodney’s four decades-long career, it’s not over yet. Today, you will find Rodney at the National Air and Space Museum doing what he loves, building!
