Warren Shenk

History Instructor

Welcome to Utah Military Academy Valdez-Peterson.

 I'm Warren R. Shenk, the 9th-12th Grade Social Studies Instructor. President Truman was in office at the time of my birth in Indiana. I have degrees from Indiana University, Brigham Young and the University of Utah. My professional career has spanned over nine U.S. presidencies. A few highlights of my educational career; sitting in the U.S. Senate Gallery during our Nation's 2nd Presidential Impeachment Trial for 10 days and being a Mandel Fellow with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

I enjoy traveling with my wife, daughter and teenage twin grandsons and for relaxation I officiate auto racing: INDYCAR, NASCAR and Formula1. 

I look forward to preparing your cadets for their future.
