A Florida Statue
This statue of Albert Alexander Murphree (April, 29, 1870- December 20, 1927) an American college professor, and also a college president. The statute is located in the campus on the University of Florida. Albert Alexander Murphree is being honored, because he played an important role in the organization, growth and ultimate success of the university. His statue impacted me, because Albert was not only a mathematics professor, he was also president of Florida State University and University of Florida. His vision and intelligence was more than been a mathematics professor, he was the first one to create Florida’s first liberal arts college. His vision was to expand education in all aspects not only in his subject of choice. And that’s something you don’t see often, most college professor only believe that their subject of choice is the only important subject. However, I agree with Albert, every subject is important and education should be more than just the basic math and science courses.
