G. Reginald Bell, Professor of Polymer Chemistry
Master's degree from the University of Tennessee in Organic Chemistry and Polymer Science

Bell has never met a Kettering student, in 50 years of teaching, that wasn't one of his "favorite students." This ever-popular Chemistry professor likes Kettering students for their maturity, creativity and ability to plan and analyze. He enjoys the opportunity to interact inside and outside the classroom with what he calls "so many exceptional individuals."

His advice to prospective students is that "you cannot afford not to come to Kettering. A degree from Kettering is the key to success."

Hidden talents and outside interests: He doesn't brag about it, but Bell plays a wicked game of ping pong. His reputation on the table is such that Joe Spielman, former GM vice president of North America assembly and stamping operations, has returned to campus for re-matches. Bell is also willing to engage in a rousing game of bridge or talk astronomy with any and all takers.

Dr. K. Joel Berry, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Melon University, with expertise in fuel cells, heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics.

Berry, who has taught at Kettering and led the Mechanical Engineering Dept. for the past 21 years, feels that Kettering students are focused, committed and mature when compared to students at other institutions. Additionally, the three words he uses to describe them are determined, motivated and winners.

As a 1979 graduate of Kettering/GMI, Berry came back to teach because of the institution's ideas. Specifically, the Kettering student has a strong commitment to excel, which he finds pleasing. And his favorite part about teaching is sharing the joy of learning with his students.

Hot tip for prospective students: "Be prepared for a significant growth experience that will prepare them for anything else that comes along in life."

Hidden talents and outside interests: when he's not conducting departmental business or teaching class, Berry can be found on the basketball court coaching players on how to improve their game.
