Congratulations! - Faculty Member Dr. Matt Pearcy

Dr. Matt Pearcy

Congratulations to Verde Valley campus Biology instructor Matt Pearcy, who started with Yavapai College in 2007, for winning this semester’s Great Ideas for Teaching (GIFT) Fellowship Award for Teaching Excellence. More than 100 faculty and adjunct nominations were submitted.

One student wrote about Matt, "His energy and enthusiasm makes a person want to learn the content, it becomes fun." Another student wrote "Always willing to help us succeed in the class." A third student noted, "I feel like he is by far the best teacher I've had in many years of schooling. He understands what he is teaching and knows how to teach it to others who do not have the knowledge base that he does."

Congratulations again, Dr. Pearcy, and thanks for making YC a better place with your dedicated involvement! To learn more about the GIFT Center and Award, go to

Verde Valley being one of the best places to retire!
