“Meet professor John Reagan. The retired Army Major will paint you a portrait of American history, and then paint you an actual portrait … with paint. In his studio.
Three years ago, John picked up some acrylics his daughter left lying around, and created his first masterpiece — in time for lunch. One of John’s pieces now hangs near his classroom, where he works to ensure no one forgets just how much America has accomplished, too.
“In public school, things gets glossed over and my students don’t understand a lot about what makes this country unique,” he says. “From Army to professor isn’t a typical career path, but I wanted to do something to make the nation stronger in my community, where I can see that I’m making a change.”
Find John enriching the minds of the next generation at Sandhills Community College.”
