Greyson ChamberlainGreyson Emerald Chamberlain, a native of St. George, has been named Southern Utah University’s 2022 valedictorian. Chamberlain majored in finance and graduated in December with a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

Chamberlain, who started his higher education at another Utah university, transferred to SUU based on the reputation of the university and the Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business.

“I had heard a lot about both SUU and the business school and felt that it was a better fit for me. My wife and I both transferred to SUU, and we really enjoyed the experience,” said Chamberlain. “It wasn’t just about getting an academic degree, which is important, but SUU gave me the opportunity to meet potential employers and really get a firm footing to begin my career.”

It was a networking opportunity that led to Chamberlain getting his first job out of college. He’s currently in the leadership development program at Zions Bank in Salt Lake City. Chamberlain plans to have a career in corporate banking.

Chamberlain credits faculty members in the Leavitt School of Business for his early success in his professional career. Specifically he’s thankful for professors Steve Engst, Bruce Haslem, and Nathan McNamee.

“The finance and business professors are great. They went above and beyond to help get me real life experience,” said Chamberlain. “What they taught me has better prepared me for my career, and I can’t thank them enough for all that they have done.”

Greyson enjoys watching sports (especially the Utah Jazz, Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Dodgers), hiking, and investing his money.

He married his high school sweetheart. His wife, Lexie is also a recent graduate of SUU earning a bachelor’s degree in exercise science.

Greyson Chamberlain will be honored during SUU’s Commencement ceremony on April 29. This year’s commencement speaker will be Dr. Condoleezza Rice, the 66th United States Secretary of State.
