A few months ago, I had the pleasure of visiting in the lawschool one morning with Dean John Carroll as he hosted two Cumberland graduates on campus.  The two grads had been close friends during their Cumberlanddays; each had moved on to develop successful lives.  As we talked, theyasked if they might see Professor Joe Snoe, one of our distinguished facultymembers.  During the three-minute walk to his office, years aftercompleting the requirements for their degrees, the grads recounted theiroverwhelming fear of showing up unprepared for Professor Snoe’s classes. Despite their fears, each said that he was one of the best faculty members theyhad ever encountered.  Nearing his office, the graduates were astounded asProfessor Snoe rose from his chair, called them by name, and then proceeded torecall in considerable detail their journey throughCumberland.   


The world is better because of Professor Joseph Snoe and themembers of the Samford faculty.
