Gateway Faculty Contribute to Industrial Technology Textbooks

Kevin Donohoo of Edgewood, associate professor at Gateway Community and Technical College, has been cited as a reviewer of a college textbook widely used in higher education to teach industrial maintenance.

Donohoo assisted in re-organizing the recently published textbook Industrial Maintenance, Second Edition by Michael E. Brumbach and Jeffrey A. Clade. Jerry Mahan, assistant professor, reviewed the seventh edition of Industrial Motor Control, by Stephen L. Herman. We provided input and feedback on the texts based on our classroom teaching experience, Donohoo said.

The involvement of our faculty in this process is an indication of the respect the industry has for their expertise, as well as their proficiency in teaching our students, said Laura Urban, Gateway provost and vice president for academic affairs.
