On Monday, May 12, 2014, Professor Dave Shuping, was recognized for 37 years of English instruction with SMC. Shuping was presented with a framed image of the Frank Walker Building where he taught over the years. President Dr. Colleen Perry Keith shared that “Dave started work on August 1, 1977. Sixteen days later, Elvis died because Dave was ready to take over rock star status.” Over the 37 years Professor Shuping served SMC, an estimated 6,000 students were blessed by the instruction and essay writing skills Shuping instilled in them. Henry Adams is credited with saying “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” SMC salutes Professor Shuping. May his ripples of education continue to have influence for eternity. Enjoy your retirement sir, job well done!
