"Professor Anthony Jones is an outstanding mentor. During my work as a graduate assistant we created a presentation on Communicating Complex Information to Unfamiliar Audiences to which he was gracious enough to share the opportunity to present at the North Carolina Community College Conference. His willingness to support my learning and professional goals is invaluable."

"Jeff Goodman, a professor in the Reich College of Education, has inspired me. He is the man who stands on his head to teach peristalsis, brings us raspberry cake because glycogen is 'brain food,' uses novelty lessons to engage us, and encourages student relationships."
