Col. Jeff Bonner
Col. Jeff Bonner
Distinguished Alumni Award
Col. Jeffery Bonner, Class of 1982, Bachelor’s in Business Administration 
Bonner’s career and service to both the military and the MTSU ROTC program are impressive. Attending MTSU on a full Army ROTC scholarship, he was the cadet commander and Distinguished Military Graduate as a senior, recipient of the Lt. George W. Burkheart Scholarship and received the prestigious George C. Marshall Award.
He earned numerous awards — including the Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star — in a distinguished military career in active duty and reserve capacities. He finished his tenure rated as the best commander within each two-star commander’s span of responsibility. In 1998, he returned to MTSU as an assistant professor of military science, joining a core group of fellow alumni to rebuild the ROTC program. They succeeded in elevating the program to No. 1 in the nation.
Now a corporation owner, Bonner works with major hydrocarbon organizations to increase the effectiveness of their global corporate social responsibility programs in Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria and Kurdistan.
