Department Welcomes Four New Full Time Faculty

New TeachersWith the start of fall semester, the Department now has four new full time faculty members: Dr. Joe Newton (Asst. Prof. of Physics), Dr. Angie Spencer (Asst. Prof. of Chemistry), Dr. Grant Thompson (Instructor of Physics) and Dr. Cheryl Eidell (Instructor of Chemistry). Dr. Newton will lead the newly established Nuclear Science program and will be teaching courses in that area. Dr. Spencer will primarily teach biochemistry and general chemistry, following the retirement of Dr. Donna Hobbs last year, while Dr. Thompson will primarily teach physical science and astronomy. Dr. Eidell, who was a part-time instructor in the department last year, will teach both general and organic chemistry.
