Wow! Last week I was surprised to learn that I was nominated for the prestigious Hope Professor of the Year Award at SMU! I was at the banquet but didn’t know I was an honoree!( damn glad I showed up, would’ve been embarrassed if I didn’t). Only a handful of faculty are nominated per year. Thank you to all the students who showed me love, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and have tried to contribute to the progress of the University. Thanks for this wonderful surprise!
