Dorsey will join past recipients Rich Riesenbeck ’62, Pat (Mueth) Smith ’74, Mike Meyer ’70, Rex Sinquefield ’62, and Steve Frank ’66 as the youngest recipient of this award.
The Distinguished Alumnus Award, presented annually at commencement, recognizes the personal, professional and civic accomplishments of a Bishop DuBourg Alumnus who was demonstrated a commitment to faith, family and service. The Distinguished Alumnus Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon an alumni and is a reflection of many of his many other accomplishments.
