Rod Everett, B.S. '70

Rod is a Wyoming native, born and reared in Casper, Wyoming and a longtime resident of Jackson, Wyoming.  After graduating from the University of Wyoming in 1970 with a degree in Business Administration, Rod pursued a career in the Savings and Loan and banking industries.  His dedication and hard work facilitated an esteemed career path in the mortgage lending business.  This resulted in Rod being fortunate enough to follow his career path and retire as a Senior Vice President from the Bank of Jackson Hole in Jackson, Wyoming.

Rod is an integral part of the local and state communities. He is not only a volunteer in a wide range of capacities’ but a participant in many of the events throughout the year.  He has served on several boards including the Boy Scouts of America-Friends of Scouting, Chamber of Commerce, Jackson Masonic Lodge #48, Jackson Elks Lodge #1713, and the Jackson Hole Rotary Supper Club. Rod has been recognized for his selfless efforts and dedication throughout the years including but not limited to, the esteemed awards for Rotarian of the year for Rotary District 5440 in 2000 and Citizen of the Year as founder of C-Bar-V, a school for developmentally disabled children.  As a well-respected and valued member of the community, Rod served as District Chairman for the Boy Scouts for 7 years, on the Chamber of Commerce board for 15 years and as President of the Jackson Hole Shrine Club for 6 years.  The Jackson Hole Shrine Club has been holding the Cutter Races for 45 years and during Rod’s time as President the club was recognized as giving more money to the Shrine Hospital than any Shrine Club in the world of their size. 

Rod continues these community efforts as well as varying business interests in Jackson including The Liquor Store at Albertsons in Jackson and The World Famous “Stagecoach Bar”, a roadhouse at the base of Teton Pass in Wilson, WY.  He is a dedicated and loving family man, father of two children.  A daughter,, Kymber Everett, who currently resides in Jackson, WY and a son, Austin Rodgers Everett Jr., who tragically passed away at the age of 20 from AIDS in 1996.  Austin was born with Hemophilia and contracted the AIDS virus due to a transfusion to treat his Hemophilia in the early 1980’s.

A strong sense of community is the foundation of which this kind and generous man is based. It is best said by Dr. Charles Mayo, “All who are Benefited by Community Life, Owe something to the Community” a quote with which he strives to live his life by.  Rod has always been active in local organizations and strongly believes in giving back to the community that has been so generous to him; therefore, he is extremely excited to have the opportunity to serve on the University Of Wyoming Alumni Board Of Directors.
