Professor Deon Miles ’97  

In his senior year, Deon Miles ’97 told Wabash Magazine that he hoped one day to teach in a small liberal arts college, and that's exactly what he's doing 10 years later as Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee. Professor Miles, now married with an 18-month-old son, Noah, earned tenure last year. Watching Deon teach a seminar and lab was a great way to start WM's four day trip through Kentucky and Tennessee to interview alumni for the upcoming "39 Under 39"issue. A perceptive and remarkably effective teacher, Deon knows his students and loves his work.
