Peter Williams

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Louis Alan "Pete" Williams (born February 28, 1952) is a former American journalist and former government official. From 1993 to 2022, he was a television correspondent for NBC News. He served in the administration of President George H. W. Bush.

Williams was raised in Casper, Wyoming where his mother was a realtor and his father was an orthodontist. "Pete" is a nickname he has used since childhood.[3] After he graduated from Stanford University, where he had originally studied engineering but subsequently changed to journalism,[4] he began his career in local news with the Casper, Wyoming, television station KTWO and its eponymous radio station in 1974.

In 1986, Williams became press secretary for U.S. Representative Dick Cheney and followed Cheney to the United States Department of Defense as Cheney became United States Secretary of Defense to be the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs in 1989 during the George H. W. Bush administration.

Williams became a correspondent for NBC News in late March 1993,[5] after leaving the Defense Department. His main areas of news coverage for NBC include the Department of Justice and Supreme Court. He retired from NBC News on July 29, 2022.[6]

Chavely Cruz

Student Speaker

Thank you to Chavely for accepting the offer to be our Student Commencement Speaker!
Chavely was born and raised in Havana, Cuba before moving to the United States!

During her time at UW-Casper, Chavely majored in Biology while participating in undergraduate research through the INBRE program! During her time in INBRE, Chavely has spent time researching myocardial dysfunctions through the characterizations of PAD 2 enzyme expression. She has also spent time researching for the Gonadotrope Project. For this research, they looked at microtubule dynamics leading to ovulation. This is, essentially, how changes in DNA effect the menstrual cycle.

Chavely has over 150 volunteer hours in the ESL program at the Castellow Adult Learning Center. She has had the opportunity to shadow Dr. Ramos. She is also a Phi Kappa member! This fall, she will take her MCAT after completing a few more shadowing hours with Dr. Ramos!

Thank you, Chavely! We are so happy we got to be apart of your higher education journey!
