  1. Thank for recognizing the accomplishments of my Father who has taught there for a few years now. He loves what he does and enjoys teaching. You have an absolute gem on your staff.

  2. Professor Dougherty was a wonderful sweet and kind hearted man. It was an honor to have had him. He will be missed.
