LAKE CHARLES, LA, January 10, 2012, Stearns W. Rogers, Retired Professor of Chemistry for McNeese State University, has been recognized by Elite American Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in science education.
Prior to his retirement from his position as professor of chemistry from McNeese State University, Mr. Rogers specialized in teaching science to students who required additional assistance in the course. Over the course of a career that spanned more than four decades, he taught science to students who ranged from K-12, and he strived for excellence in helping them to achieve their academic goals.
