He said, “Seeing the young professionals succeed in our profession is the ultimate reward a supervisor can experience.”

Peevy has tried to live his life according to the advice reflected by words inscribed on a ruler given to him by his first grade teacher, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” According to Peevy, “Living by these words, the golden rule, will serve you well through life. Abiding by this rule will enable you to succeed, and help those around you reach their full potential. Seeing so many people that I have worked with over so many years now succeeding indeed makes me proud.”
