Who is/was your favorite professor and why? My favorite professor is Jerry Drye. When I arrived in Dalton on a quest to finally go back to school, I was clueless as to how to get the process going. I worked at a restaurant during the summer of 2014 when I met Professor Drye. He sat at my table and quickly noticed my effective way of speaking. After learning that I was trying to restart my education, he gladly gave me all the information I needed to enroll in Dalton State. He soon became my advisor, and has continued to give me valuable information for my future.
