Ohio University alumnus Mike Rattanasengchanh, who earned a Ph.D. in History and a Contemporary History Certificate in May 2019, accepted a position as Assistant Professor of History at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in closures across the nation.
