Ron Harshbarger got his BS from Shippensburg State, an MST from the University of New Hampshire, did graduate work at Penn State University, and received a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. During a long and highly successful career at Penn State University, Dr. Harshbarger received both teaching and advising awards. At Georgia Southern University, he taught a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics, developed five new mathematics courses, and created the mathematics component for a new doctoral degree.

 

At the University of South Carolina Beaufort, Dr. Harshbarger was named Professor of the year in 1999. In 2000, Professor Harshbarger was named the Governor’s Professor of the Year for the State of South Carolina.
