  • Columbia, SC (1888PressRelease) July 15, 2011 - John L. Safko, Distinguished Professor Emeritus for the University of South Carolina, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes John L. Safko's commitment to excellence in Education.

    Safko, who holds a BS in Physics from Case Western Reserve and a PhD in Physics from the University of South Carolina, began working in his field in 1964 after receiving his second degree.

    Currently retired, Safko spent just over fifty years working diligently in his profession, a possible astronomy elective curriculum for non-science majors, was involved in content and updating courses, developing a sequence of self-paced introduction to astronomy courses with enrollment of approximately eight hundred each term. He also co-authored physics texts for PhD level courses and published research papers in his field.

    "My inspiration," Safko said, "was providing self-paced courses that got the students more actively involved."

    Safko is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is also a member of the National Association of Academies of Science (NAAS), an organization that has, as one of its goals, to assist high school students, to develop a career in science. He has served as treasurer for the NAAS for the past six years. He also served as treasurer of the South Carolina Academy of Science for thirty years and is a past secretary of the University of South Carolina faculty. Although now retired, Safko continues to keep the course material up-to-date for the university and also keeps track of the NAAS funds.
    In his down time, John enjoys reading.
