February 26, 2021

Dr. JiMiesh Green Crane, DDS is a cum laude Bachelor of Science graduate of Morris College. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2005 and since her graduation has excelled academically and professionally. While a student at Morris College, she participated in summer research at MUSC, Charleston, and was a leader among her peers both in the classroom and in the STEM Club activities. She was also crowned as Miss Morris College for the 2004-2005 academic year and she became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated through Morris College.

To express her gratitude for Morris College helping to navigate her career path, Dr. Crane contacted Dr. Radman Ali, her Biology Major advisor to inquire about what the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics needed to help improve the academic instruction for its students and Dr. Ali who was elated to hear such a generous offer quickly told Dr. Crane that the Division needed a Sharp Interactive Smart Board to help make online STEM instruction an exciting experience for students. Within a month, Dr. Crane had already purchased the $10,000 Smart Board with a 3-year service contract.

“Thank you for always having an open-door policy to explain things even if it were after 5 p.m.…It is because of your dedication and leadership I am where I am today. Thank you for all that you have done to help me, those before me, and those after me,” said Dr. JiMiesh Green Crane.

“I am utterly astounded by your expressions of gratitude and love. I am also overwhelmed by the extent of your love for your alma mater-Morris College. It is with students and graduates like you that Morris College continues to exist. Morris College opened the door for you, and you entered it widely and with force, commitment, and dedication,” said Dr. Radman Ali.

Morris College and the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics are grateful for “Stellar Graduates” like Dr. Crane who have excelled academically and professionally, and who reach back to help their alma mater to continue to grow beyond what they could have ever imagined, said President Staggers.

Dr. Crane is now the Orthodontist and the owner of the Smile Tuners Orthodontics, P.C.
