SMC Professor Dr. Brian Gloor earns United Methodist Award for Exemplary Teaching

Spartanburg Methodist College awarded Dr. Brian Gloor with the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church Award for Exemplary Teaching on Friday, April 4th.

Gloor was recognized by President Colleen Perry Keith during the April faculty meeting.  Each spring Dr. Ann Bowles, SMC’s Vice President for Academic Affairs and the three previous annual award recipients weigh the teaching excellence of all full-time teaching faculty members.  The award includes a monetary prize that allows the recipient to pursue professional development. ”SMC is honored to have such a passionate and gifted instructor as a member of our family.  Dr. Gloor inspires students by making chemistry fun and relevant,” shared Bowles.

Gloor, Professor of Chemistry at SMC since 2012, holds a B.S. from Texas State University, a M.S. and a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame. In 2013, Gloor was the recipient of the SMC James S. Barrett award for unselfish service in campus fundraising efforts.
