Dr. Ronald Robertson, associate professor of chemistry, received special commendation this week from Constance Brown, a teacher in the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, for his dedication and hard work with elementary and middle school science students. In a letter to President Hoppe, Robertson was praised for teaching young science students, performing "magic shows" during National Chemistry Week, enhancing student competency in science literacy and preparing students for ExpOlympics competitions. Brown praised Robertson for working "more than a 1,000 hours" putting the Montgomery County Science Fair together. "For over five years he has helped me bring science to my feeder schools," Brown said. "He truly is your greatest asset."
