Quick bio: Montreat College faculty member since 2007. Connelly has a deep appreciation for history and what it teaches us about the past and present. He notes, "we don't live our lives in a vacuum, so history provides the narratives that explain our present and inform our future."
Students have affectionately nicknamed Dr. Connelly "The Silver Fox" for his slick moves he's been known to show off during intramural basketball games. When he's not teaching and mentoring students, or perfecting his dribble, Dr. Connelly enjoys spending time with his wife and sons, listening to U2, and following Gamecock football, Cubs baseball, and Arsenal soccer
