M.A. in Special Education Alum One of Pittsburgh's "40 Under 40"

Kristofer Smith, a 2012 alumnus of the Master of Arts in Special Education Program and director of corporate and community relations at Seton Hill, was named one of Pittsburgh's "40 under 40" by Pittsburgh Magazine in October, 2014. The 40 honorees are selected annually by an independent panel, based on "their passion, commitment, visibility, diversity and overall impact on the region." 


"I have begun my teaching career with Buncombe County around Asheville, N.C. Everything is going great. I think that everyone in the education department at Seton Hill instilled in me a belief that I was special and that I could truly help kids. And I really do believe this. Thanks again for everything.

P.S. Tell all the professors what a great job they are doing."

- Kevin Potthoff, SHU '13, M.A. in Special Education, in an email to Seton Hill's Education Division.
