Ronald Barrett- I had him for Anatomy & Physiology I and II. He was tough. When you studied for his tests, you had better study EVERYTHING!! He might take a test question from the caption under a picture. To pull an A in his class was one of the greatest things I accomplished at Belmont.
Betty Wiseman - She was like a temporary mom. She was helpful in guiding me in the right direction academically as well as spiritually. I always knew that she was there to listen if I had a problem or if I was just having a pity party.
