In his senior year, Deon Miles ’97 told Wabash Magazine that
he hoped one day to teach in a small liberal arts college, and that's
exactly what he's doing 10 years later as Associate Professor of
Chemistry at the University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee.
Professor Miles, now married with an 18-month-old son, Noah, earned
tenure last year. Watching Deon teach a seminar and lab was a great way
to start WM's four day trip through Kentucky and Tennessee to
interview alumni for the upcoming "39 Under 39"issue. A perceptive and
remarkably effective teacher, Deon knows his students and loves his work.
