    I have known Tommy Parnell over the period of several years while he was a student at SNHU. He took several mathematics courses with me and I did get to know him extremely well. I have very vivid recollections of him. This young man is exceptionally bright, articulate, and a pleasure to have in class. He is extremely helpful as a student who followed my lectures effortlessly and occasionally corrected my mistakes. He is very friendly, well respected by his peers, and does not hesitate to help someone struggling with a mathematical concept that he can explain well.
