MSUM celebrates Professor Conteh and his retirement
Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - An MSUM icon is being honored tonight for his contributions to higher education.
Andrew Conteh has been teaching international relations and law at the university for more than 30 years. Before teaching, he was the ambassador for Sierra Leone to the USSR back in the 80s.
He also was a delegate to the United Nations multiple times and a consultant on the UN's Institute for Training and Research. While he won't be in the classroom next semester, he says he's not done learning or teaching.
"This is not the end. For me retirement is simply an opportunity to do other things," said Andrew Conteh, retiring after 30 plus years.
He plans on moving out to the Fresno area of California after the current semester ends.
