May 16, 2017

The Department of Arts and Sciences recognizes Elizabeth Reid as a gifted instructor and its Adjunct Instructor of the Year. In the 2016-2017 academic year, she developed and taught the new course, MA 161 Math for the Liberal Arts. This course was well received by MACU students. Education student LeeAnn McGraw says, "she helped me tremendously in both College Algebra and Math for the Liberal Arts. Her courses prepared me for and helped me pass the Praxis Test, and will prepare me for my NC Teachers Licensure Exam. She was patient and understanding and always showed that she cared about her student's success. Mrs. Reid was by far the best math teacher I have ever encountered. I only wish that I had met her sooner!” Elizabeth Reid takes seriously the admonition of Colossians 3:23 “to do everything she does for the Lord.” She invests her life in MACU students and works to make it possible for students to overcome obstacles. Sophomore student Grace Minter says, “Ms. Reid is a wonderful, amazing, superior, and extraordinary instructor whose caring, compassion, dedication, and patience make her shine!”
