(Peru, Neb.) Peru State College (PSC) Business Professor Dr. Bill Snyder will be honored by the PSC Foundation for nearly 40 years of service to the college and students at a reception and dinner on Saturday, June 25.

 

PSC President Dan Hanson said, “Every once in a while an educator emerges as so distinguished in sustained commitment to students and service that he or she seems to epitomize the very essence of the college. Dr. Snyder is one of these educators. I congratulate Bill for a remarkable career, thank him for his service and wish him the very best in his retirement.”

 

The event will begin with a reception at 4 p.m. at the President’s Home. Dinner will follow at 5:30 p.m. at the Student Center. Cost to attend the event is $35 and a reservation is required. RSVP at www.peru.edu/banquet/, 402-872-2304 or pscfoundation@peru.edu.

 

Snyder originally joined the PSC faculty in 1970. He left after the 1972-1973 school year before returning in 1979. He has since served in various roles at PSC, including vice president of academic affairs, interim president, and as a faculty member teaching economics and management courses.

 

In addition to serving in several roles at PSC, Snyder has also taught at Johnson-Brock Public Schools, Columbus Public Schools, and for the Peru Achievement Foundation and Bank of Peru.

 

Snyder has been the recipient of many honors and awards during his career, including the Nebraska Outstanding Young Educator from the Nebraska Jaycees and the PSC Teaching Excellence Award.
