Liberal Arts Division Part-Time Faculty of the Month: Bonner Slayton
Congratulations to OSU-OKC English Professor Bonner Slayton! Slayton is the third recipient of the Liberal Arts Division’s Part-Time Faculty of the Month Award.
A native Oklahoman, Dr. Slayton has been an instructor at OSU-OKC since 2006. When he was a child, Bonner’s school principal told him, “Professional people do professional things,” words that continue to inspire him to this day. He says, “I can’t expect my students to reach for excellence in their lives if I’m not reaching for excellence in mine.” What keeps him striving to do his best is hearing from former students who tell him that he made a difference in their lives.
“Dr. Slayton is an outstanding teacher, scholar, and colleague. His classes are consistently the first night classes to fill due to his reputation as a fair and dedicated instructor. Students respond to his caring attitude and his smiling face. It is a pleasure to work with a talented and hard-working teacher like Bonner.” – Dr. Karen Jobe, English Department Head
