Its December edition features, among faculty members from throughout the state, WC’s Allen Beatty, assistant professor of accounting; Dr. Michael Goldcamp, associate professor of chemistry; and Dr. Savitha Krishna, assistant professor of biology.

Lute Harmon Jr., president of OHIO magazine, lauded the Wilmington College group and all those other faculty members recognized from the state’s colleges and universities.

OHIO magazine is pleased to celebrate education and to honor those who are making a difference and contributing to Ohio’s commitment in achieving excellence in education,” he said.

Beatty is known for his hands-on approach to learning and for epitomizing the spirit of service that is so valued at Wilmington College. An IRS Enrolled Agent and a Certified Public Accountant, he redesigned the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program at WC in which students are trained to prepare tax returns free of charge for those of low to moderate income.

During Goldcamp’s 15 years at the College, his research publications include 16 student co-authorships, working on projects such as the synthesis of transition metal complexes, the development of electrochemical methods and the catalysis of the decomposition of natural catechols. Several of those co-authored papers earned national recognition.

Krishna, who joined the faculty in 2015, is an applied biologist with a special interest in studying public health issues that connect organismal biology and human health. She is known for crafting courses that build in-depth knowledge on the subject matter while connecting the theories with hands-on lab activities.
