University of Oklahoma honors VSU�s Dr. Brian L. Gerber

One of VSU's own has been named one of the "75 who make a difference" by the University of Oklahoma College of Education. This honor goes to Associate Dean of the College of Education Dr. Brian L. Gerber. Oklahoma considered nominations for more than four months from alumni, faculty and friends. Nomination material was gathered on 125 finalists, from which 75 were then chosen.

"We decided there is no better way to celebrate our 75th anniversary than by honoring 75 alumni who have made a difference in the world by using the values and philosophies they learned at the college" said Joan K. Smith, OU dean of the College of Education.

Dr. Gerber has also recently been credited with assisting in bringing SciTrek to VSU to form the new home for the science education and training program.
