Peterson to retire from Northwest Iowa Community College
Jeff Peterson, Academic Specialist – TRIO Student Support Services, will be retiring from Northwest Iowa Community College on June 21. Peterson has been with NCC for four years.
Peterson started his teaching career at the Clay Central Everly School District, where he taught high school English and American history. He also coached volleyball, speech and drove school bus during his 22-year tenure. He later worked at Harris-Lake Park in the resource room and drove school bus.
Peterson was nominated by his students for the Who’s Who Teacher Awards numerous times and he was appreciative of these honors.
“Interacting with students who were excited about a high grade or graduating were the most satisfying moments at NCC,” Peterson said. “I have enjoyed my years here and I appreciate all the friendly, helpful individuals I have encountered. I will always feel part of Northwest Iowa Community College.”
Peterson says his plans for retirement include relaxing and traveling on a spur of the moment whim.
