He also served as the government relations chair for the Wisconsin Association for College Admissions and on the Government Relations Committee for the National Association for College Admission. Peter earned his bachelor’s degree with honors from Lawrence University (where he serves on the Alumni Association Board of Directors) and a master’s degree from Arizona State University.
