The University of Kansas Medical School has recognized Charles Englund, retired Bethany professor of chemistry, for his years of dedicated service to his students and the State of Kansas.
The recognition took place on October 9 at the University of Kansas Medical School Pre-Med Advisors Conference. Bethany College graduates and current KU Medical School students Tessa (Howard) Rohrberg ’08, Trent Davis ’09 and Mariah Crumbaker ’07 were present at the recognition.
Englund retired last December after teaching at the college since 1968. His influence upon the lives of Bethany students has been immeasurable. He has been awarded the Greg and Beth Pierce Award for service at Bethany, the Bethany College Mortvedt Award for Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership and the Mentor Award from the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita. Under his guidance, numerous students have gone on to medical, dental, pharmacy and veterinary school, as well as graduate school.
