Georgia College & State University Professor Earns National Recognition for Teaching Excellence

Dr. Mehenna Yakhou, professor of accounting, adds national recognition to his recent GCSU award for excellence in research and publication. This year, he is being featured in "Who's Who Among America's Teachers." This award is bestowed to the top five percent of the nation's educators each year. Educators are nominated by former students who have been recognized in "The National Dean's List." Each student is asked to choose one teacher "from your entire academic experience who made a difference in your life by helping to shape your values, inspiring interest in a particular subject and/or challenging you to strive for excellence."

"This is an enormous honor" Yakhou said, adding; "there is nothing more gratifying to a teacher than being told that she or he played a positive role in the life of a former student."

Dr. Yakhou has been teaching at GCSU since 1994.
