John Evanson, professor and chair of the Business Administration Program at Yakima Valley Community College, recently was presented with the Advancing the Dream award by the Central Washington University College of Business.
The award, established 14 years ago, recognizes the outstanding contribution of colleague professors in community colleges throughout Washington. Nominations for the award are submitted by students, faculty, and staff, and one professor is chosen. Evanson was presented with the award at the 21st annual College of Business Honors Banquet at CWU on Saturday.
Before joining the faculty at YVCC, Evanson taught at Williston State College in Williston, ND, and Dickinson State College in Dickinson, ND. He was instrumental in the development of one of the first community college entrepreneurship programs in the United States.
Before becoming an educator, Evanson worked for nearly 20 years in economic development, accounting, and small business finance. He has a master of business administration from University of North Carolina and a bachelor of business administration in accounting and financial management from University of North Dakota.
