Alumni Volunteers Pave the Way

Ken and his daughter at the
Grand Slam Jam held in April.
The Cape Fear Area Alumni Chapter, which hosts events for more than 18,000 local alumni, is growing their programming, thanks to great volunteers and leadership. Serving as Chapter President, Ken Dieppa '09M, enjoys the opportunity to support UNCW and the community.

Receiving his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from USF and then attending military school while in the Naval Reserves, Ken was originally brought to Wilmington while working for Corning Optical Fiber. He chose the graduate program at the Cameron School of Business due to school rankings and because the accredited MBA program could fit his busy lifestyle. Now, as a Senior Services Project Manager with GE, he enjoys spending time with other alumni in the coastal town he calls home.

"The people at alumni events are great. They are very positive and the conversations are intellectual which produce a warm and inviting atmosphere." Ken desires to continue to build affinity networks between alumni and local businesses and is looking forward to making new connections at the Alumni After Work coming up this Thursday.
