Russell C. Deaton, '10, commercial relationship manager at American National Bank & Trust Co.
"The business professors at Averett University offered engaging courses that peeked my interests in several areas of the financial world. During my four years, they also became my friends and colleagues. Learning was not limited to the classroom, but often extended when class was finished. Averett's professors truly made my time worthwhile and taught me lessons that prepared me for life after graduation."
J.C. Sells, '08, CPA, internal auditor at American National Bank & Trust Co.
"The course curriculum at Averett University thoroughly prepared me for the business world. It also qualified and equipped me to take and pass all four sections of the CPA exam. With the help of the faculty in the business department, I developed the skills I needed for my current career path as an internal auditor for a publicly traded community bank. The one-on-one instruction and the faculties' willingness to help, even after class, made a world of difference."
