Southern University faculty and students mourn the loss of a beloved teacher today. Dr. Joseph Meyinsse died from a heart attack earlier this week.

Meyinsse was a long time math professor and chairman of the science and mathematics doctoral program. A colleague of his tells us, he was an inspiration.

His colleague, Dr. Luria Young described Meyinsse as "An exceptional devoted husband, a proud father. He was a brother, a renowned scholar in his field, a colleague, a leader, a friend... He was so many things to so many people, and he will deeply be missed."

His services were held today at St. Michael's Episcopal Church. He was 60 years old.
