A memory submitted by Sherri Price, Class of 1983

Dr. John M. Claunch. Such a brilliant man but extremely giving of his time and knowledge. He taught government and was Dean of Poly Sci and Dean of Dallas College. He wasn’t easy but always fair, and he loved SMU. You would always see him at football and basketball games. He was a Pony thru and thru! He became President of George Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee but when he retired from there he came home to his beloved Ponies and even taught a class or two!
