Congratulations to Public Relations Professor and program champion Patrick Bishop for receiving this week's title of Person of the Week.

Bishop was recognized as the 2021 distinguished teacher during a virtual celebration back in April.

"I know that this is my calling, something very much in my blood and bones because I love it,"
Bishop says.

For 16 years, Bishop has kept an energetic approach to teaching in the college of business at Ferris State University, helping students to achieve those everyday a-ha moments.

Patrick says this quote 'feeling of illumination' is how he knew teaching was where he needed to be.

Bishop's outgoing personality has also been key to his long-term service as adviser to the university's public relations student society of America chapter, a campus registered student organization.

His reputation as an emphatic and engaged instructor and adviser is the talk among college of business students.

Bishop said he prides himself on the fact that alumni of the program have become his friends and contributors to his campus efforts.

Thank you Professor Bishop for all that you do for Ferris students.
