A memory submitted by Philip Riegel, Class of 1982

Dr. Bruce Pringle was my favorite professor at SMU. He was not only intelligent and creative, but he had a hilarious sense of humor and always took time in his busy schedule to mentor and show care for his students (unlike most SMU faculty I knew). His joy and excitement for a topic was contagious. His classes were more like educational seminars. He was not only my teacher and mentor but he was also my friend.

I enjoyed being his Teacher’s Assistant, using Dr. P’s skills and methods to mentor, teach and encourage younger students. I will never forget him and the impact he made on my life. I praise my Lord Jesus for the blessing of knowing Dr. Bruce Pringle!
