This past week a new magazine came out.
Guess who was on the front cover.
Albert is famous!
William Jessup University (where Albert works) renamed/redesigned their magazine, and Albert was selected to be featured in it.
So far all the pictures I have seen of professors in their magazine have them looking very dignified and professional.
But Albert — well, let me say they captured his personality. (Part of the reason I love this guy!)
Albert even dressed up for his photo shoot. When he arrived, they handed him an Angry Birds t-shirt, put football paint on him, and turned on a big fan. (Albert uses stuffed Angry Birds in one of his physics experiments. He really enjoys keeping the kids engaged in class.)
To his dismay, they also decided to show quite a portfolio of how the photo shoot went.
Albert is walking around now, going, “The things I do for my university…”
Well, I am very proud of him. He keeps his students very engaged in class and at times they will even ask him to do something again so they can video him and put it on Facebook. There’s a reason they asked him to do this kind of thing — I’m sure very few professors could pull this off!
Albert, on the other hand, is a bit mortified at his new-found fame.
- One of the people in my office got the magazine and showed it to everyone in the office.
- A member of the congregation wrote Albert a note saying how much they enjoyed the magazine.
- Another member of the congregation said she got two copies in the mail so she put one in the church library for everyone to see.
- And one of friends from our old church in Fremont said someone brought it into the church office there and showed it to everyone!
Here’s a PDF of the article if you’d like to see it. (The magazine was so big it barely fit on our scanner!)
