Meet the Mentors

Brock Bybee

School: Dixie State University 2009
Major: BS Communications

Brock grew up in Roy, Utah and migrated south to the warmer weather of St George. Dixie State University was a great option because it was affordable enough that Brock ” didn’t have to give up my arm, leg, and my firstborn child to pay for tuition.” He also appreciated the smaller class sizes and the opportunity to contribute on campus, as he was Student Body President. In his own words, Brock is a “sports and movie junkie, and still cheer on the Jazz despite the fact that I know deep down we will never see a title brought to SLC.”

Brett Schwartz

School: Dixie State University 2009
Major: BS Business Administration

Brett is a St. George native who couldn’t bear to leave the warm weather of the area. Having spent time overseas, Brett found his place at Dixie State University, where he got his degree in Business Administration. Brett decided on Dixie because, “I was offered more scholarship money from Dixie than any other school. With Dixie’s tuition costs being so affordable, I was able to attend on a full-ride.” Brett enjoyed his time so much at Dixie, he admits, “I often wish I could go back in time and live college life at Dixie again.” Brett spends much of his free time on the golf course or on the hardwood of the basketball gym.

CJ Ferguson

School: Dixie State University 2009
Major: BS Communications

CJ is originally from Austin, Texas and after spending a couple years after high school in Korea, found his way to Dixie State University. The original motivation to come to Dixie had to do with football, but CJ found a fantastic educational and social opportunity. ” I had a few friends go to Dixie and knew some people from the St. George area and thought it would be a good fit for me.” CJ spends most of his free time in the outdoors, which is one of the main reasons he stayed in St. George, “at any time of the year, you can be outside playing sports or just taking in the amazing scenery.”
