As a student, Jim Carreker, BEE ’69, helped to launch John Peatman’s Senior Seminar Series. As an alumnus and founder of Aspect Communications, Mr. Carreker has returned to campus several times over the past 30 years as a speaker in this student seminar program. The conversion to semesters resulted in the elimination of this program. His awareness of the importance of this kind of program led him to establish the James R. Carreker Distinguished Lecture Series, which took place for the first time on October 12, 2000.
