#happyadministrativeprofessionalsday to these two amazing ladies!!!! The School of Science would be lost without Tracy Casey (Administrative Assistant- SOS) and Sharee Hutchinson (Academic Advisor- SOS). Their positive energy radiates beyond the doors of Martin Hall to all who have the pleasure of knowing them. They are truly a "burst of light" for many. You ladies keep us all on the right track & always with a smile on your face.

We may not say it everyday but we appreciate your dedication, perseverance and commitment to the School of Science. #jsusos

Gamecocks, we know the last few weeks of the semester can be stressful, so JSU faculty submitted their words of encouragement and support for students during this time. Wherever you are, #YouJustKnow we are here for you! We are #JSUStrong.

On this beautiful #FacultyFeatureFriday, we would like to continue shining the spotlight on our adjuncts. Today, we are shining a light on the Department of Biology’s Megan Meade. Megan not only earned her B.S. and M.S. degrees from JSU, but she has also served as an adjunct teaching our online Introduction to Biology I and II labs for 8 years. She also assists with our dual enrollment program, providing our high school teachers with resources and advice.

Megan took the charge of ensuring that all our face-to-face biology lab students had a seamless and virtually stress-free transition to online labs. Though certainly not her responsibility, she reached out offering to help, had a plan in place and worked with our faculty to move hundreds of students to the online lab platform.

When Megan is not instructing labs, she enjoys spending most of her time with her husband chasing around their almost 2-year-old son. She also enjoys kayaking on the lake, biking the everglades trails, and swimming year-round--these are some of the new adventures they've been able to experience in South Florida. However, the Appalachian Foothills will always hold a special place in her heart. Nothing places a bigger smile on her face than taking a walk through a stream in the Talladega National Forest. She is looking forward to the day that she can bring her son back to experience JSU traditions and explore the natural beauty of Northeast Alabama.

“As a JSU Alumni, I love my Gamecock family and was thrilled to be able to continue serving our students after relocating to Coral Springs, Florida. I genuinely love interacting with our students through online learning and continue to hear from many former students. Although life has taken me in different directions over the years, I have always cherished the opportunity to participate in the education of JSU students and play an integral role in the development of meaningful online science courses. “

We are honored to have Megan be a part of our family. She is a perfect example of what it means to be #gamecockstrong.

Happy Faculty Feature Friday !!!!

One thing we don’t do often enough is give a big shout out to our dedicated, hardworking, adjunct faculty. April’s Mathematics featured faculty highlights one of our favorites, Jim Roebuck. Jim has been a part of JSU for over 20 years, as he earned B.S., M.S., and Ed.S. degrees and served as graduate assistant, adjunct, dual enrollment instructor, and workshop facilitator. The classes he teaches at JSU fill up fast, but he’s also an integral part of the math department at Weaver High School where he was Calhoun County Teacher of the month in November 2019 and has multiple nominations for Teacher of the Year and JSU’s Hall of Fame, Secondary Division. Sounds like a full slate, right? Jim Roebuck also serves as the WHS Marching Band Coordinator where he leads the largest band in the system in day to day operations. But wait, there’s more! He is the Problem-Solving Team Chairman which involves helping the faculty identify academically at-risk students and create a plan to lead them to success.

Introducing out first ever #facultyfeaturefriday in the Department of Mathematical, Computing and Information Sciences. (MCIS)

Today we introduce our #featurefaculty, Dr. Jan Case, Distinguished Professor of Mathematics. Dr. Case is currently serving as Interim Department Head of MCIS and has been a professor at JSU for over 19 years. Dr. Case is not only an amazing statistician but she also co- chairs the student symposium and worked with a team of JSU educators to develop and implement a new model of math placement.

Dr. Case and her beautiful family spend an unprecedented amount of time at baseball games mainly because her husband and JSU’s baseball stadium are both named Jim Case.

When given an opportunity, Dr. Case loves to be outdoors. All it takes is a glide on a zipline or the serenity of floating a kayak down Terrapin Creek, or even the simplicity of hiking along a trail in the woods and she is happy, happy, happy. Please don’t let the beach be involved, then she is jubilantly happy, happy, happy.

When Dr. Case is on many of her outdoor excursions, she is accompanied by her loving companion Cecil. Dr. Case describes Cecil as a jug headed, bowlegged buddy who likes to surprise small children by licking their face to see whether they’ll laugh, cry or fall down.

To get to know more about Dr. Case follow us on Instagram (@jsumcis). She will be featured in additional posts and/or stories throughout the month as she is the MCIS #featurefaculty for March.

Congratulations are in order for our MCIS Students Ben Junkins, Marcus Shell and Paul Bedford as well as the Team sponsor, Jaedeok Kim for their accomplishment in the Williams Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition

The results of 2019 Putnam Competition came out yesterday, and our team did an outstanding job! The following is how our team fared in the prestigious competition.

Our team is ranked 280th out of 488 schools.

Ben is ranked 1558th, and Marcus is ranked 1680th out of over 4000 students in the nation.


“I think it is a remarkable accomplishment considering our team's inexperience and not getting enough time for prepping. I hope that this extra effort and commitment by our math major students continues with more students joining.” – Dr. Jaedeok Kim, Professor Mathematics

Alumni Bytes - Cassandra Harris @makingcreativemathematics
Cassandra received her Master’s in Math Education at JSU and has recently received National Board Certification. Enjoy a snippet from her interview with the @sassy_bluejay blog titled, Why I still love teaching, The interview Series. “While at Jacksonville State University, I really began to develop as a teacher and began to hone my teaching techniques. Being back in school helped me learn ways to incorporate various strategies in my classroom. I was really inspired by one of my college professors who taught us how to use manipulatives in a class and have students focus on conceptual understanding rather than simply learning the math algorithm. This inspired me to research activities that help students discover math concepts and develop a conceptual understanding of that topic.” To read more of Cassandra's interview use the link below
