After 24 years, Ron Vogel associate professor of business, is retiring from USU Eastern this semester.
Vogel, a native of Ogden, was a student of art history when he first entered Brigham Young University. After being convinced of the futility of a career as an artist, Vogel studied business at BYU and accounting at Weber State University before moving to Price to be closer to his wife’s Lorilyn’s family: Brad and Mike King.
“I love the school. I love the area,” says Vogel, “This was a great place to raise a family and have a career.”
As a professor of one of the most rapidly evolving industries, Vogel admits, “I didn’t think it would change this much.” He pointed out the immense changes that have taken place in the industry and the college as computers changed from disk-operating systems to the Internet as a prime example of the changes he has had to keep up with.
Vogel looks forward to spending the next few years pursuing his interests, particularly travel, art and music, although he will miss getting to know the students and faculty of USU Eastern.
