I had the privilege of knowing Hussein both as my instructor for three classes in 1996 & 1997, and as a colleague since 2002. None who knew Hussein would dispute that he was an excellent instructor with unrivaled concern for students' learning and general well-being. It is fitting that ODU is establishing the Dr. Abdel-Wahab Memorial Scholarship (http://bit.ly/HusseinAbdelWahabODU) which will support graduate students. As of April 11, the scholarship is 58% of the way to its goal of $25k. I've donated, and I call on all former students and colleagues to continue Hussein's legacy and ensure this scholarship is fully funded.
