Raider Salute to James Muth

A student took the time to submit this through the Student Feedback Management online comment form, so we wanted to take the time to share it with all of you! Thank you to everyone who goes the extra mile to help our students succeed!

I am very pleased with GRCC! I love it here. One teacher did stand out more than the rest not saying that all of my teachers weren’t great because they were but this teacher James Muth did so much for me and never gave up on me. When my grades weren’t as good as they should be to pass the class he took time out of his I’m sure very busy schedule to help me bring my grades up so that I would pass. He did so much for me and I learned more than I ever hoped to. Thank you James Muth!
