It feels good to know that I am a part of a growing institution where I can make an impact on the students that I come in contact with,” Peele said. “I am excited about the upcoming school year and this new chapter in my career, and life. I can’t think of a better place to be than Pacer country.”
“We are very excited to welcome Jashaun to the WPU community,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., President of William Peace University. “Our students are sure to thrive under his teaching and leadership. We are very lucky to have him.”
