"It truly is a pleasure to be able to share with you the recognition our Department received on Wednesday.  Chemistry had three (3) faculty recognized as Top Prof through the Azalea Chapter of Mortar Board.  As this was the 14th installment, many of us know how special events like these are in that our students share how members of South impact their lives in a positive way.  Chemistry with Biomedical Sciences and English all had no less than three faculty recognized in their respective units.  The Chemistry faculty recognized were Dr. Dave Battiste, Dr. Matthew Reichert, and Dr. Richard Rogers.  Not only is it a pleasure to work with each of you, I as well as everyone in the Department would echo that you are most deserving of this recognition - congratulations!" - David Forbes
