UC Recognizes Dennis Demoss

Denny Demoss was presented with the Herman Schneider Distinguished Alumnus Award from CEAS in May. In urging the college’s undergraduates during his visits to campus to “dream a little bigger than you think,” Denny effectively summarizes the drive and effort he has put into his own life and career.  

In addition to his previous commitments to the UC capital campaign over the last few years, Denny is helping establish the Sargent & Lundy Power Conference Room in the CEAS Learning Center.  Many thanks to Denny for his continued enthusiasm and support of UC.
