John WelshHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 5, 2013 – High Point University recently hired John Welsh for the fall semester as an instructor of Italian in the Department of Modern Foreign Languages.

“I hope to bring youth, enthusiasm and a love of teaching to my classes,” Welsh says. “After several years away from teaching as a student and researcher, I am very excited to return to the classroom.”

He also received an award for his work as an instructor during his graduate studies at UVA.
