Caroline Peterson Harvey

Caroline Lee Harvey (1942) is the daughter of Everette and Minnie Peterson of Powell, Wyoming. She received her high school and elementary school education at Powell.

In 1964, Carol married John Harvey at Hartville, Wyoming. They have three children: Janna (1967), John J. (1969), and James (Jamie) (1970). After their marriage, they lived at Cheyenne, Wyoming (1964-66); at San Diego, California (1966-67 school year); Bozeman, Montana (1967-71); and at Byron, Wyoming (1971-72), before they moved to North Weyburn in the summer of 1972.

Before her marriage, Carol was employed as cashier (1960-62) by the Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Company in Cheyenne, and as executive secretary (1962-64) to the Commissioner of Agriculture for the state of Wyoming at Cheyenne.

At Western Christian College she has been employed as dormitory director at College Hall (1973-74), substitute in cafeteria, in classroom and in the academic office (1974-79), as part time secretary (1979-82) to President Max Mowrer, and as executive secretary (1982- ) to the president. In her post as executive secretary to Vince Anderson, she is responsible for all logistics of special events such as lectureship, homecoming, youth rally, college graduation, and shares the responsibility of high school graduation with the academic secretary. She is also in charge of the office in the absence of the president and of all ordinary decisions even when he is present.

Carol was volunteer dormitory mother (1972-73) of Hanes Hall. She and her husband were in charge of youth worship at the Weyburn congregation for two years.

She has delivered Meals-on-Wheels for the city, been president of the local chapter of the Women's Service Club, and has entertained many students. She considers her greatest community service to be her "foster parenting". She cared for three newborn infants during 1977-79.

Carol believes that the greatest blessing of her years at Western is becoming a member of an extended family. This extended family is precious because her natural family lives far away. Another blessing is the development of a large network of close friends that extends across Canada and into northwestern U.S.A. Wherever she travels, there are friends.
