Peter McCown, Ph.D., assistant professor in business, and Ted Bryant, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology, recently received the “Forty Under 40” award. Every year officials from St. Joseph and Elkhart Chambers of Commerce, WorkOne and the Young Professionals Network choose 40 local business and professional leaders who have achieved distinguished success before the age of 40.
