"Fulton’s work ethic and approach to teaching and learning are truly inspiring and I marvel at his ability to still maintain an open-door policy for students, faculty, and staff. Besides being an outstanding colleague and scholar, he has an exceptionally strong moral character and a most pleasing personality that is a necessary asset in the field of education for recruiting students and for working with all levels of faculty and administration." - Cedric L. Adderley, DMA
