University of Arizona Honors Snow Peabody for 40 Years of Service to the State of Arizona

Snow PeabodyThe University of Arizona awarded the Rev. Snow Peabody, Executive Director of Teen Challenge of Arizona, with the 2012 Professional Achievement Award during the recently-held fundraising banquet for Teen Challenge Tucson. 

Rev. Peabody was recommended for the award by Dr. Randy Carlson, NRB Executive Committee Member, President of Family Life Communication, and Host of the nationally syndicated radio program Intentional Living

Dr. Carlson told the University of Arizona Alumni Association that “[Snow’s] passion and commitment to worthy community causes on city, state and national levels has earned him great respect in every area of his life."

“It is my hope that his 40 years of sacrifice and service will be rewarded with such a prestigious honor,” he added.

Each year, the University of Arizona Alumni Association gives the Professional Achievement Award to a person who has attained prominence in his or her field. Service to the University of Arizona is not a requirement.

According to Teen Challenge, Rev. Peabody began working for the organization as a volunteer while a student at the University of Arizona.  He has served on staff faithfully for the past 40 years. 

Today, in addition to serving as Executive Director of Teen Challenge of Arizona, Rev. Peabody is the Representative to Washington, DC, for Teen Challenge USA.  He is also a member of the NRB President's Council and serves on the Board of Directors for numerous other organizations.
