A memory submitted by James Cornelius, Class of 1977

My favorite professor was Frank Young, Insurance, Cox School of Business.

I took every class he taught because he made so interesting the normally dry subject of insurance. He had a practical and oftentimes humorous approach to the curriculum which kept the students alert and interested in the subject matter. His real-life examples of insurance claims and risk management were very practical.

Frank actually was very instrumental in getting me my first job after graduating. I have been in the insurance industry for 36 years, and almost every day I look back on some of Frank’s practical teachings in running my insurance agency.

What a great asset Frank was to SMU.
