Beverly Wahl
USU Graduation: BS '94


Notes

Highlight:

There have been many wonderful changes in my life since I graduated. My son graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Finance and a minor in Management System Information. I moved to Montana and married the most wonderful man Tom Wahl. I call him my "Cowboy" and we have been married for twelve years. I have two step-daughters who are attending college now in Kentucky. We have a lovely home located on five acres at the base of the Bridger Mountains where my cowboy and I enjoy sitting on our deck, having a glass of wine overlooking the Gallatin Valley and watching the sun go down. This is truly "The Last Best Place". I have been employed with JCCS Accounting for twelve years as an Administrative Assistant and enjoy working with our clients. I can honestly say that I use my degree in Psychology every day. My favorite memory while on campus was how beautiful campus was during the autumn season. I also enjoyed my Professors and my classmates. I have to give them many thanks as I could have not gotten through without their support and friendship. Go AGGIES!

USU Graduation: BS '06



Notes

Highlight:

I began my studies at USU in the Fall semester of 2002. I met my wife, Jill Griffeth, while at USU during the Fall semester of 2003. She was the secretary in the ECE department that school year, and luckily our off-campus lives crossed paths just enough for me to justify asking her out. We dated in the spring of 2004 and were married later that summer. The year 2005 brought the birth of our first child, Rasmussen (RJ), as well as the completion of my Bachelor's Degree and the beginning of my employment at Hill AFB for the US Air Force. In 2006, we bought our first home, and in 2007 we welcomed our second child, Aribella, into our family. I returned to USU for graduate school in the Fall of 2007 as part of a sponsorship by my employer, where I was able to attend school full-time for one year while still maintaining my full salary and benefits. I completed a Master of Engineering degree after the Summer semester of 2008, and returned to work at that time. In 2009, our third child, Knightley, was born, and I was given a new assignment at work as a Systems Engineer. Life has been good to us, and we are proud to be an Aggie family!
