McDowell Honored as Professor of the Year

Professor Duncan McDowell was voted by the student body as the 2009-2010 USC Salkehatchie Professor of the Year. McDowell taught English courses at the campus for 20 years and retired at the end of the 2009- 2010 academic year. Each year the students vote for the Professor of the Year, and the honor is presented at the USC Salkehatchie Commencement Exercises in May. McDowell’s students selected him for this honor citing his willingness to go the extra mile to help students and the fact he was never seen without a smile on his face. One called him “a true gentleman.”
