Prof. John McDonald's Retirement Party Draws a Crowd (April 2013)

Professor John McDonald's many years of dedication to the Biology Department have not gone unnoticed by his colleagues and friends. Biology faculty, staff, and other friends joined in wishing Prof. McDonald well as he steps down from full-time teaching. Dr. Bonnie Kelley hosted the festive celebration at her home in Laurinburg on Friday evening, April 26th.

Good food was aplenty, and the Locklear Family (John, Tonya, Layla, and Lakota John) entertained the crowd with live music. Tonya Locklear does double duty as musician and as the Department's Administrative Assistant.

Prof. McDonald joined the Department in the year 2000, and over the years, he has taught numerous sections of the Department's BIO 1000 (Principles of Biology), BIO 1030 (Basic Human Biology), and, during his first four years, the ENV 1000 (Environmental Science) course.

Prof. McDonald will do some teaching in the Health Sciences building this fall, but at a reduced load. Prof. McDonald says that he will cherish all his experiences and all the memories he has made in the Department. He will be missed by the Department.
