My name is Zach PersonZachary Person: admissions counselor for prospective college students at Western Oregon University

I graduated from college in 2002 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Performance, and received a Master in Music Performance degree in 2005. A native of Graham, Washington, my other interests include photography, hiking (my favorite places are near the Sunrise Lodge in Mt. Rainier National Park), and fly fishing. Thanks to all those years spent in university libraries, I've developed quite the passion for reading and try to get to as many books as I can. My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, J.D. Salinger, Fyoder Dostoevsky, and Bernard Malamud. Really though, I'll read anything that has an intriguing cover! I enjoy working with students from all backgrounds to help them achieve their dream of attending college so that they too may discover their true passions. My recruiting territories include Multnomah county in Oregon, and all of Washington State. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about Western Oregon University!


Zach Person’s county: Benton and Lane

Out of State: Washington State, Alaska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
