Mays Business School, March 1st, 2004
Charlie Plum was one of those professors that truly loved his students. And that affection was returned tenfold. During Plum’s tenure at Mays, he estimates teaching accounting for non-majors to more than 6,100 students.
But Plum’s influence went far beyond the classroom. In fact, Plum has served as a life-long mentor to a former Mays student, Willie Langston ’80, that he never taught in the classroom.
Langston and his wife, Marian ’82, honored Plum’s devotion to teaching by endowing a room in his honor, the Charles W. Plum Seminar Room, in the Cox Graduate Business Center. The room was dedicated in front of a standing-room only crowd at a recent ceremony.
