JC Adjunct Educator of the Year

Georgia Military College 2020-2021 Adjunct Educator of the Year
Mr. Moulare Keese, GMC-Fayetteville

Georgia Military College has named Mr. Moulare Keese Adjunct Educator of the Year for the 2020-2021 school year. Keese has had an impactful career at Georgia Military College. He is an Adjunct Professor of Economics at GMC-Fayetteville.

Keese is a native of West Africa, having now been in the United States for 26 years. He joined the team at GMC-Fayetteville in 2018. He says his time at GMC has been a great opportunity to enrich his teaching philosophy of student-focused learning. Dr. Namaan Pamoja, GMC-Fayetteville Academic Dean, says in his submission, “The word ‘commitment’ best sums up Mr. Kesse’s value and contributions to the Fayetteville campus and the larger GMC community. He is an esteemed professional who strives for optimal compliance with academic policies and is considerably timely and reliable. In the classroom, he works diligently to simplify for students the often-daunting task of learning and understanding the quantitative analytical models associated with the study of Economics. Mathew Trotter, a former student of Professor Kesse once stated he was taking Professor Kesse’s class as an elective ‘only because his teaching style makes Economics easier to understand.’”

Pamoja’s submission goes on to say, “Professor Kesse’s commitment to assist GMC students achieve success with the study of Economics has remained true this year despite the unprecedented circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. He afforded virtual one-on-one tutoring to each of the five students across the past several quarters this year who needed to quarantine due to COVID-19 issues. Although he had to step down from his teaching assignments during the 2021 winter term due to kidney issues resulting from his own hospitalization after contracting COVID-19, he helped his substitute instructors readily and rapidly ramp up for classroom instruction via phone from his hospital bed to ensure a smooth handover to the new instructors so as not to disadvantage his students. An inspired servant leader of character with a compassionate spirit and exceptional performance in ensuring student success, Mr. Moulare Kesse continues to shine brightly in a constellation of exceedingly talented faculty at the Fayetteville Campus and throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan Region and Georgia Military College.”

Despite a challenging and unprecedented academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Keese remained focused on student success, and committed to the Mission & Vision of Georgia Military College. Congratulations to Mr. Moulare Keese for being named GMC Adjunct Educator of the Year!
