History Alumnus Gives Back to USD
Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Jamey Power '85 guides his alumni class as chair of the USD 25-year reunion gift campaign.
Why did you choose to attend USD?
It was (and remains to me) the perfect convergence of attributes: a smaller, liberal arts-based school, Catholic values, location and beauty of the campus…and it was a relatively new school that gave me the chance to be part of something new and on the rise.
How have you used your liberal arts education in your career?
It gave me an incredible foundation in conducting international business: working with people in different cultures, understanding consumers in these different markets and understanding the evolving role of the United States in the world. It also helped me develop as an analyst, writer, and public speaker.
Please share your greatest accomplishment in your professional life.
