HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 26, 2010 – Alexis Smith, adjunct instructor in the Phillips School of Business at High Point University, was recently nominated and accepted into the 2011 Who’s Who.
The Who’s Who is a directory of leaders and achievers from both the United States and around the world, from every significant field – including librarians, students, researchers, educators and more. Those included in the directory have been nominated.
Smith, who teaches economics at HPU, previously appeared in the directory in 2000 after winning a national teaching excellence award (NISOD).
“I was surprised to be nominated again,” Smith says. “It is nice that someone appreciated my teaching. It tells me that my hard work pays off in helping students grasp the material. My goal has always been to take concepts that might be difficult or theoretical and help students find practical applications for them so that transfer of learning is increased. I also love to learn new things, and I try to encourage my students to explore the wonders and seize the opportunities that education brings.”
Smith has taught as an adjunct instructor at HPU since 1994. She also serves as a staff hospital chaplain at Wesley Long Hospital in Greensboro.
