R. Jeff Postans '79
Jeff Postans came to Bridgewater College thinking he would major in biology and pursue a career in forestry. He left with a degree in business administration and friendships he would treasure for a lifetime. “I felt that I was part of the community. The interaction with the professors and staff at Bridgewater was extremely important to me. Having a wide variety of classes also helped me to appreciate and, to some degree, be able to talk about a variety of subjects,” Postans said.
For the past 36 years, Postans has been employed with the Virginia Department of Taxation. He is now a Senior Auditor, managing a team of five auditors in the Southside area of Virginia. He is also active in his community and his church, Farmville United Methodist Church. He is the chair of the Board of Directors and the Mission Coordinator for the Wesleyan Campus Ministry that is active at Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College.
Postans is also actively involved as a Bridgewater College alumnus. He is currently the secretary of the BC Alumni Association and has organized several tailgate events at away football games. “Coming back on campus has always been like coming home to me. Just to walk around and relive the sights and sounds of my time here is fabulous. There are times that I will think back and get teary eyed when all the memories come rushing in.”
