Jack Peterson Retires - June 2012

After 29 years of dedicated service to thousands of students at Utah State University, Jack Peterson will retire on June 30, 2012. Jack has taught financial, managerial, and audit courses throughout his teaching career; his versatility and ability to deliver a quality course each and every time has made him an extremely valuable part of the School of Accountancy. He has the unique ability to make each student feel important and valued.

In addition to his excellent teaching service, Jack has served as a role model and mentor to scores of students who have sought his advice regarding their education and career paths. Many students have chosen to study accounting because of his special rapport with them. Jack is a perfect example of the highest values that the SOA is trying to attain.

In April of this year Jack was named Faculty Advisor of the Year for the School of Accountancy as well as the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. In 2010 he was the recipient of the Teacher of the Year for both the SOA and the Huntsman School.
