Swets' Students Fondly Remember Their Professor

December 10, 2011, 6:20 PM

Swets' Students Fondly Remember Their Professor
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Augustana Computer Science Professor Daniel Swets was among those who lost their lives in the plane crash Friday evening. 

And the outpouring of support is coming in from more than just those on campus.

Swets was a major component of the Augustana computer science program and also enjoyed teaching younger children. His extensive work with the LEGO league in building robots helped middle school students learn about science.  Some of his former college students, who've moved to other parts of the country, still remember him for his passion.

“You could tell by the way he taught that he really loved what he did and he was very excited about what he did and how he taught,” former student Nicole Winkler said.

“He had his interests and he was really good at certain things and he pursued those and that was his career as both a professor and academic. But, he was also someone who would be willing to take a step outside his comfort zone and explore new interests,” former student Dan Day said.

We'll have more reaction from Swets' students all across the country coming up tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at 10.
