William Whalen (Biology)
William is one of those rare students who really befriends the faculty. His transition from private sector to undergraduate to graduate student has been journey of growth and discovery. While his interest was originally towards medicine (physician assistant), I believe that he fell in love with the classroom. William has been one of our highly-prized TAs providing valuable service in a number of different courses. He was also poached to other duties in the community colleges and to Enology/Viticulture for his abilities. I am proud of his growth and his enthusiasm to teach. I think Will is a great ambassador for many of students who see the MS as a step towards a career in the classroom.
