William Petty, a senior accounting major, was selected to participate in Temple University Diamond Peer Teacher Program for Spring 2019.

He is also a member of Beta Alpha Psi, the accounting honor society, and he is pursuing a minor in Management Information Systems. Petty has accepted a position with Deloitte as an audit assistant, following his graduation in May.
