A Loma Linda University alumnus was recently named Faculty Scholar of the Year at Cedarville University.

John Whitmore, PhD, who graduated in 2003 from LLU School of Science and Technology with his doctoral degree in biology with an emphasis in paleontology, is currently associate professor of geology at the university, located in Cedarville, Ohio. He has served on the faculty there since 1991.

The prestigious Faculty Scholar of the Year award is presented by the deans of the various academic divisions.

“John, as a paleontology student at LLU, was very capable and a fast learner,” remembers Leonard Brand, PhD, professor of earth and biological sciences, LLU School of Science and Technology, and one of Dr. Whitmore’s professors. “He was also especially responsible and able to get work done in spite of many other pressures on his time.”

Dr. Brand adds, “I am not surprised that he received this award.”

Cedarville University is a Christ-centered, Baptist university of arts, sciences, professional, and graduate programs with approximately 3,000 students and is located in southwestern Ohio.
