Dr. Muriel Fuqua has been teaching at Daytona State College (DSC) since 1989. She has taught ENC 1101, 1102, AML 2600, and several other English courses. During the Fall/1998 semester, Dr. Fuqua wrote and developed the first African American Literature course offered at Daytona State College and began teaching the course in 1999 and has been teaching this course since that time. Also, in 1998, Dr. Fuqua reorganized DBCC’s (now DSC) Literary Society. This student club had been inactive for over eight years, but during Dr. Fuqua’s tenure as advisor, the student club won several state literary awards. While being the Advisor of DBCCs (now DSC) literary magazine (at that time named Reflections), Dr. Fuqua, along with the Literary Society student club members restructured the library for the Rose Marie Bryon Children’s Center, one of the oldest after care centers in Daytona Beach, Florida. The literary club collected and donated over 1,000 books to revamp the center’s library. Dr. Fuqua has received numerous scholastic awards. Among them is the Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers Award, received in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2004. In 2008, during the Juneteenth Banquet, the City of Daytona Beach, Florida awarded Dr. Fuqua a Hometown Hero Recognition Award for her work in the local community.
Dr. Fuqua is conducting Office Hours in Microsoft Teams in the Fall 2020 semester.
