Sherman College Adds James Gary Vidrine, Ph.D. to the Gallery of Honor

Dr. Vidrine shared 23 years of his life with Sherman College as professor of basic sciences, teaching microbiology, micropathology, biochemistry, histology, nutrition and public health, and making a memorable impact on countless lives with his quick wit, warm personality and profound knowledge of “bugs.”

Dr. Vidrine will be remembered as a true gentleman, a loving husband and father, a dedicated teacher devoted to his students’ learning and success, and a lifelong learner who always kept current with the latest in microbiology and public health.

Sherman College honored Dr. Vidrine with the Faculty Member of the Year Award on three occasions in 1986, 1993 and again in 2001. He also received the Distinguished and Dedicated Service Award from the college in 1985.
