AaronPearson-150x150Aaron Pearson, from Belvidere, Illinois is the Rock Solid Regent for the week of April 11. Aaron is a senior in the Bachelor of Science in Management Studies (BSMS) program and was nominated by Donna Harvey, Director for the BSMS Program. Donna shared that, “Aaron is always pleasant and helps other students in any way he can. He is active in his church and makes his family a priority even while pursuing his degree completion and working 50 hours a week”.

Aaron enjoys studying at RU because he needed a program that would allow him to attend classes at night. He is thankful that the BSMS program offers him the flexibility he needs as a working adult. He feels that his professors not only provide academic knowledge, but also real world knowledge that enhance the overall learning experience. Along with his academic endeavors and full-time work schedule, Aaron also finds time for additional activities. He’s served as volunteer for Meltfest, a coach for junior tackle football, and he is a member of the Beloit Rifle Club. Aaron also enjoys hunting, fishing, 4 wheeling and spending time with family and friends.

After graduation he plans to take a vacation in a warm location to celebrate his achievement. He also plans to seek a new job opportunity within the company where he is currently employed. He is also considering continuing his education at RU by entering the MBA program. Congratulations, Aaron!
