Where in the World is Smokey?

Commanding a Submarine Squadron in the South of France

Clive Hayward, a lieutenant commander in the Royal Navy, was an exchange student at UTK from the University of Ulster in 1984-1985. At the time, he was earning a major in history and a minor in political science.

"My photo was taken at the Naval Base in Toulon, South of France . . . where I work at the Escadrille des Sous-marins Nucléaire d'Attaque the French Nuclear Attack Submarine Squadron," he wrote. "I'm standing next to the French Tricoleur in the Naval Base."

Hayward said he has fond memories of UT: "I had the pleasure to have been taught by, amongst others, the excellent Drs. Chuck Johnson, Ed Trainer, John Bohstedt, Al Smith, Paul Pinkney and Nelson Robinson. Yes, I can remember their names because they impressed me so much, as did UTK. I recently reconnected with my personal adviser that year, Martha Masengill, who sent me the Smokey T-shirt for Christmas. I've been an officer in the Royal navy for 21 years now, but the year at UTK was my best ever, taught me a lot, and without it I wouldn't be the man I am now."
