Monterey Institute of International Studies

I just came across this announcement while looking to add Peter to my Linked In account. This is sad news indeed. Peter's presence in my life began long before I attended the French Summer Intensive Language Program or enrolled as a BA/MPA student at MIIS. I was first introduced to MIIS and Peter at an AFS student exchange orientation on my way to the Czech Republic exactly two decades ago. Peter was an integral part of countless success stories that came from AFS and MIIS alike that were cultivated early on and lasted long after graduation. Anyone who knew Peter will attest to his passion for travel and genuine interest in students. He was a sincere global humanitarian who will be greatly missed. I feel strong that his legacy will continue at MIIS, but it is a sad time for anyone who cared for him or benefited from his kindness and experience. Peter was one of those rare individuals who set out to make a positive impact on the world. He pursued a profession that reflected his passion for people and improving the human condition. He had a warmly genuine smile for each person he met.
