Important People 3–Dr. Spinney
Dr. Spinney teaches US History I & II to freshmen at Patrick Henry College.
BEST IDENTIFYING FEATURE: He ends every class with, “If God permits, I’ll see you all (next class day).”
PROPER FORM OF ADDRESS: Dr. Spinney
FAMILY: Wife and children.
UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMORS: The longer a professor stays at PHC, the more like Dr. Spinney he becomes. In scholastic matters, at least.
SUBSTANTIATED RUMORS: Dr. Spinney may say “I aim to please,” but what he really means is “I aim to teach.” His class will be phenomenally difficult, but you will come out of it far more knowledgeable and well-rounded than when you went in. Keep that in mind after you get your first paper back from him and wonder how much he hates you. He does not hate you. He’s teaching you.
