One Educator's Lasting Impact

Each year, Clarkson University asks its seniors to nominate the educators who have significantly affected their lives and helped guide their higher education and career decisions. Grant Geske, a former science instructor and innovator at Cushing, will be honored later this month as one of three 2017 Clarkson University Inspirational Educators. He was nominated by Nate Hurwitz, a Clarkson senior and member of Cushing’s Class of 2013, for teaching students how to be innovative and allowing them the freedom to learn through exploration.
 
As reported by the University:
“He was a teacher that taught us how to 'think,' rather than just memorize," Hurwitz said. "He gave us the opportunity to ask 'why' in his chemistry class and encouraged us to not be satisfied with an answer that was, 'Just because that's the way it is.' This encouragement to question the norm was what led me to becoming a business, and, furthermore, a supply chain major at college. He taught me how to look at processes, look for discrepancies or areas that could use improvement, and then the process in which to follow to break down redundancies and create an overall more streamlined experience."
 
Grant Geske is currently the Director of SEO and Digital Analytics at Carnegie Communications
