MORE REMEMBRANCES OF DR. HOGG I would just like to say how very sorry I am.
I had Dr. Hogg for organic chemistry in the 2003-4 school year and he was one of those professors that leaves a lasting impact on his students with his incredible zeal and enthusiasm for teaching chemistry and teaching students. He was always willing to talk about classes to take.
He wrote me a letter to get into medical school and I am about ½ way through. He prepared me for chemistry and for life by showing me what it is to pour 110% of yourself into what you choose to do.
So many professors research and teach because they have to, Dr.Hogg was a rare teacher who taught with teaching as a hobby--and it showed in everything that he taught.
Dr. Hogg you will be greatly missed, Michael Van Hal
